Our topic for discussion today is on our thoughts. We all have them, constantly, and for many they can seemingly unwillingly and uncontrollably occupy our mind with an activity or quality that does not support our health and wellbeing.
I was first introduced to The Yoga of Stillness, Esoteric Yoga, nearly ten years ago by some friends who were practitioners of this modality. Over the years I had already explored many styles of yoga and had been teaching yoga myself for nearly seven.
The practice of Esoteric Yoga, The Yoga of Stillness was unlike any other yoga class that I had attended and I must say it was a game changer for me in that I experienced everything that I had always been looking for in yoga, but had not yet found up until that point.
We have had a lot of feedback from our previous Body Awareness Meditation to offer a longer version. So here it is!
This is a newly recorded 20 minute Body Awareness Meditation that can be done either in sitting or a lying position. A great meditation to do when you are feeling a bit out of sorts, or can be used as an opportunity to deepen your connection with your body.
This is a 9 minute recording of The Gentle Breath Meditation™. This meditation is a simple meditation to support you to reconnect back to a gentle quality within your body through choosing to breath gently. It is a very simple meditation that is great for beginners as well as experienced meditators.
The focus of this meditation is to connect to a quality of gentleness and then when you get up from this meditation and head back into your daily activities, there is the invitation to take this quality with you into your next movements.
In our last article Is Self-Nurturing Selfish? we exposed that attending to ourselves – our health and wellbeing (aka self-nurturing) first, is not selfish and that although this is often thought to be the case, that it is indeed a deeply harmful myth.
In this article we would like to offer simple tools to support you to put yourself first – not for selfish reasons, but so that you are able to be of full service to others and bring your all to what you do and those you meet.
In our experience of life and working with clients in our clinics, it is clear that many of us hold the common belief (particularly for women), that putting ourselves first is a selfish act, yet this is in reality the total opposite to the truth.
In this article we would like to share with you something that we are ongoingly working on ourselves, which is building a body of love. Why would we want to do this? Because when we build love in our body, we feel more connected with ourselves, with others, we feel more at ease with life in general, in purpose and also because it feels lovely.
Let’s face it, for many of us who live a city life, it is hectic. Sydney is a fast-paced city and there is what seems to be an endless array of things to be done, people to see, places to get to. The feeling that ‘there is much to do’ can leave us feeling overwhelmed, tired and tense in our bodies. We can often feel this is our ‘normal’ and part and parcel of life, but really, is this normal and do we have to feel this way, or could there be another way?
In our last two articles we have explored on the topic of Love. Here we continue with Part 3 our final article presenting What is Love.
Let’s pick this article up where we left with the question of
So how do we hold ourselves in love?
In our last article we began the exploration on the Topic of Love. Here we continue with Part 2 and our upcoming Part 3 will conclude this trilogy.

So let’s pick up from where we left off from Part 1 with the pondering of…
So could it be that to find true love our first port of call is our reconnection back to self?
