The greatest gift you can give your family and friends is "your" happiness.
"I have decided to stick with love....hate is too great a burden to bear"
Martin Luther King
Movement flows through you, air flows through you but also thoughts flow through you.
By now you may realise you are not your thoughts.
The essence of you is love, peace, knowing, a connection to everything around you.
We are moving up your body to your heart, your thoracic spine, your chest, breasts, arms & hands.
You feel with your hands, you feel with your heart and the yoga classes are lovely to practice, very gentle and full of positive messages.
You may also have realised that the parts of your body with illness or disease are connected to one, some or all of the sections. It depends how long you have been out of balance.
Now it will be easier to understand which yoga, meditation, foods, herbs etc will help and support you.
*This includes serious diseases such as breast cancer. Yoga cannot cure you, but it can make you feel more, heal more, accept more and embrace life more..Yoga asana can also help with improving the immune system. Improving the health of all the systems of the body in fact.
Bring more mudras, more heart into your practice.
The power of mudras, the hand positions of yoga is not to be underestimated for changing your mind. Your hands are connected to how you feel which includes your sense of touch.
Singing, dancing, walking, stroking your dog, sitting in the sunshine. What comes up for you?
What do I do that hurts you?
Notice it is often thoughts of things that happened in the past that hurt and cause emotional pain.
This moment in time is beautiful, just you and your heart, your breath, nothing else needed.
Pay close attention to your feelings and promise the heart of you that you will return often to listen and learn.
I pass you this beautiful flower, keep her in your heart.
A moon flower, soft, delicate, healing.
Be grateful, be kind, be content.
"Moon Flowers are special flowers that reach out and touch something within you.
They speak to your heart, each seems to have it's own message.
Look out for them in your life.
Talking is not the best form of communication."
The Heart Flow Class is beautiful to practice as well as being a special class for the immune system

Namaste Julie ( My heart greets your heart )
Ready to move on?
The new moon in Aries was the time to begin the next section.
What made me decide was water...
I was reading about the positive qualities of copper water containers, recommended in Ayurveda.
Online I found a beautiful egg shaped copper water holder and it had a stopper set with turquoise.
I now have it on my dining table...too easy.
Turquoise is a stone for the throat chakra, blue is the next colour, the next section of the course, for sound and silence. For the teacher and wisdom. I'd chosen my next gift to myself.
I needed a prompt to move on because I "love'' practicing the heart classes.
What a special time it has been.
On Shivaratri, the exact New Moon morning, I clicked on my emails to join Swami Saradananda's zoom satsang and there was an email accepting Bird Song for publication.
It had been a year since I contacted 4 publishers and I had let it go. Thought it wasn't going to happen and it wasn't good enough.
It is very close to my heart, my wish to share yoga teachings in a modern way, share my life and inspire other women to live a happy and beautiful life.
It was also my birthday this month and I had a lovely holiday in the Blue Mountains staying at Wollemi Wilderness Cabins.
It's been a "lovely" 2 months or more.
But it is time to grow.
Change your world.
Change the world.
Everything begins with you.
