“It is just within this 'fathom long' body
endowed with perception and cognition
that there is the world, the origin of the world, the cessation of the world,
and the way leading to the cessation of the world.” Rohitassasutta, SN 2.26

I squeeze out. “Deep breaths in and out” she repeats. Seriously, I am suffocating over here. I’m in a shoulder stand and my boobs are cutting off my airways as they flatten my larynx.…

Like any quest I am in search of something. At times the thing I seek is clear, but most times it is nebulous. The thing I search for ‘the present moment’ is an elusive creature. I see it hiding in shadows, but most times I feel like…

I’m staring at my laptop and there’s nothing. I can’t write a single word. I could put it down to writers block but that’s just not true. The whole week I have been songwriting, writing a short story for my writers group, hell I’m…

I sometimes forget when I head to yoga practice on Thursdays after work that I am not just rushing to do my asanas but to understand my mind a bit more. I sometimes struggle with breath-focused seated meditation, so it was a welcome…
I love being upside down. I love love love it. Ask anyone who knows me well enough, I love doing things backwards and inverted - why? I have no clue, I just think its fun - perhaps I was a bat in previous life as I like Ask anyone who knows…

Thursday came and with it my very first official Dynamic Yoga class with Tatjana. I was strangely nervous, wondering if I was going to suck or not. Intellectually I know yoga practice is not about being good or bad and more a case of being…

One of the most challenging things, I imagine I am not alone in this, is being mindful and present. Being in the now has been my Everest of sorts for as long as I can remember. My mind is like a version of mental ping-pong - ping past-pong…

by Zen Yogini Kyra While it's not usually advisable to be in a state of digestion while practicing yoga, if we are distracted by our stomach growling it can take away from our ability to focus and enjoy the practice. Personally, if it's…

By Zen Yogini Kyra As odd as it sounds, avocado chocolate mousse - or avochoco as I've lovingly nicknamed it - is glorious! And super healthy. Interesting tidbit: the botanical name for the cacao tree is theobroma cacao – which means “food…

We humans are neurologically wired to respond to danger with the “fight-or-fight” response: increasing heart rate, blood pressure, mental alertness and muscle tension, and at the same time slowing or shutting down systems of digestion,…
