Pay What You Can, Yoga Is For Everyone

Posted 6 November, 2012
Article 20
Christmas is on the horizon and I’m brainstorming presents for the whanau. Thinking back to this time last year a well-meaning friend suggested that I look into Oxfam donations and buy each of them a goat. What a noble idea! A perfect opportunity to spiritually spoil those who couldn’t wish for more…

“When I can’t sing my heart, I can only speak my mind” 9 Perfect Practices To Reconnect With The Heart.

Posted 27 October, 2012
Article 18
These days we tend to over mentalize the world around us. You wouldn’t guess we were at the forefront of evolution, racing around every day going between our business, thinking over 60,000 thoughts a day, obsessing about what to cook for dinner or some comment a colleague said 3 days ago. It’s enough to let out a random and very defeated sigh.

Tolerable Trauma: The Troubling Decline Of Richie McCaw…

Posted 21 October, 2012
Article 17
I do not expect many of you residing in Yogaland to know whom Richie McCaw is. However, if you asked any New Zealander they would tell you with chest puffed up that he is one of the best rugby players to have ever lived and the captain of World Champion All Blacks.

Article 16
Do you often find yourself telling the story of how busy you are to anyone that will listen? I do. All the time. Frustratingly I am becoming one of those people that you need to book in with two weeks in advance to catch up with, timetabled to the last breath of the day. Exercise, buy groceries, work, very important appointments, soak seeds for breakfast in 3 days (chia porridge in joke), fold towels, respond to emails, catch train on time, sleep, see that film, clean bathroom, work, book course, exercise, meditate, plan, arrange, organise, coordinate; every day the same, rushing to relax.

10 Ways To Cut Back On Drinking, Have A Detox Or Quit For Good

Posted 6 October, 2012
Article 15
From a tender age when my responsible mother would send me off to high school parties with 2 or 3 sickly sweet RTD’s, I have been a consumer and occasional abuser of the bottle. Coming from New Zealand where the love of a good time & binge drinking is historically ingrained in the culture, this isn’t too surprising. However over the years my love of a few drinks has turned in to a sad tale of regret with disasters including losing valuable possessions, accident and emergency rooms, blacked out one night occasions, alter ego rampages, not to mention head wound hangovers and 100 McPilgrimages.
