My Personal Philosophy
Be Present, Be Patient, Be Committed & Believe In Yourself
What does it mean to me to be Present?
I feel the constant pressures of our modern lives: pressure to be more successful, to give more of myself, my time, my energy, to be beautiful, to be a better wife, a better mother, to be everything to everyone, to be perfect. Yoga allows me to just be…
When I step on to my mat and practice with intention, I let judgement of myself go and take time to notice how I really feel, notice who I really am; I connect with myself and nurture myself. This time gives my mind and body the nourishment it needs to cope with the stresses of daily life.
I have learned to sit with my feelings, not to be afraid or turn away from them and to loosen my hold on my identity with my faults, my sadness’s, my disappointments, giving me freedom to open up; to find myself and be at ease with myself.
I try to take what I learn on the mat: strength, flexibility, patience, focus, dedication, faith, compassion and kindness and translate these feelings into my everyday life.
Yoga brings wholeness and peace to what at times can feel like a chaotic and exhausting journey.
I will try to live my life and run my business with integrity and love, sharing time and space with others giving them the opportunity to just be…
Through the practice of yoga, we can find stillness and clarity, experiencing and embracing the moment for what it really is and not what we perceive it to be. We can be open to whatever presents itself allowing us to observe and fully participating in the moment and we may find that even the simplest of things become enhanced.
Present is being true to yourself
Present is awareness
Present is detachment from the past and the future
Present is stepping onto your mat with no agenda
Present is self-awareness and non-attachment
We live in a world of constant change
Being present in the moment changes how we experience things, .
Being present makes you realise what a gift life really is.

“You must learn to be still in the midst of activity and be vibrantly alive in response.”
