The Sobriety Stone

If you've ever been to Yoga Beach House you will see lots of crystals placed in various places around the studio and home, to protect, calm, energise and support our practices.  Did you know that there is a crystal that can help you in your choice to be sober?

Teacher Training at Yoga Beach House

I've just emerged from running the first TTC at Yoga Beach House as the lead trainer, an experience that has plunged me deeper into my yogic lifestyle and transformed the lives of 8 other yogis. For a few years I asked myself the question, should I run a TTC as I started to have a number of students ask me about becoming teachers.

The Way In

I stand exposed in my own brilliance
Unafraid to shine.

MY MEDICATION

This miracle drug is available to everyone without prescription, and it is free of charge. You can’t overdose on it, in fact the more of it you take the better your life becomes. Meditation is my medication, no less than 5 minutes daily for an enhanced feeling of wellbeing.

DEPRESSION

JUDGEMENT DAY

During Summer School last week with Elena Brower, it was suggested that we do an exercise which involved writing down all the judgements that we might have over the coming days about other people, situations or things. She then asked us to
