Crystal Cheatsheet

I just posted a piece on why crystals aren’t magic, including a little bit about their mining background. But if you enjoy or think you could benefit from introducing crystals into your practice then here’s a little cheetsheat for you. Never forget, you’re the magic behind the stone!

Crystals Are Not Magic

Ok, let’s talk healing crystals. Every house seems to have at least one, Gwyneth suggests we stick them in our vaginas, Adele credits her Grammy’s to them; crystals are eeeehhv-rywhere. Testimonials have credited them with being life-changing, tapping into specific grounding energies to heal and magnify certain abilities or traits. But have we become a…

The Power of “I Don’t Know”

You see, if we don’t buy into all those labels we don’t see external gratification. We don’t seek to fill voids, to prove worth with things. Because, by simply being, we recognise ourselves as divinely, innately worthy and sufficient. Ciao capitalistic vultures preying on insecurities!

5 Steps to Align with your Creativity

Yoga Styles & History

It’s common knowledge among teachers that students find the different styles of yoga confusing. And, honestly, it’s no surprise. Look at any yoga studio timetable and you’re likely to see hatha, ashtanga, yin, vinyasa, Bikram, Iyengar … and countless other offerings. Yet you look at the description and phrases like ‘breath-focused’ and ‘flow’ and ‘powerful’…

Let’s Talk Consent

If you walk into my yoga class, does that mean you are giving me consent to put my hands on you?

Insight: Om Chanting

I have never attended a yoga class that didn’t start and finish with ‘om’ chanting. That’s over four years of regular practice, regular reciting of ‘om, shanti, shanti, shanti’. The problem? I only really learned what ‘om’ means in the last year. Maybe you’re too shy to ask the meaning behind the word. Maybe you’ve…
