Today we are gonna talk about one of those taboo subjects, depression. It is, on the face of it, a very simple thing but from my experience one of the most debilitating and complex issues I have ever had the misfortune to bump into.

Yoga – My Journey | Getting Back On The Mat

by Paul Warner

NO.

There, I said it. A simple word and one that means no further action on my part, the ‘easy out’. As we all did, yoga stopped for me in December for the Christmas break, this was near fatal to my regime.
Read on to find out how I got over a dose of the ‘No’ Tourettes.

Yoga – My Journey | BEGIN AGAIN

Yoga – My Journey | Week 6 | Begin Again

by Paul Warner

A new beginning… or Begin|Again to be precise.

Having completed the four-week Begin course as a yoga newbie, I had decided that I had found my thing and I wanted yoga to start to play a part in my life.

How did that go..?

Grab a brew and catch up on the progress I made in just five short hours of yoga…

Yoga – My Journey | Meditation

Yoga – My Journey | Week 5 | Meditation

Do you look outside for things to ‘fix you’, make you feel good?

Maybe food, nice (expensive) things, alcohol, medication, other people? Want to unleash your body’s natural and miraculous power to heal itself and feel good from the inside out?

Meditation is it. But don’t take my word for it. Yoga Begin graduate, Paul Warner, continues to talk about his yoga journey and how he’s gone about discovering his own time on the meditation mat. You can get started too… I’ve got a teeny, tiny challenge you might enjoy… so get curious and take a look. J X🙌

Yoga – My Journey | Week 3

Yoga helps us work with discomfort.

You’ll here me tell ya.. It’s where the growth and magic happens. So stepping into the yoga space for the first time is a big deal – but imagine then sharing that vulnerability and putting yourself out there (baggy yoga pants and all) to write a blog about it! Paul Warner… goes for it…photoshoot and all. 🙌

So what’s it really like to walk into a yoga studio and just BEGIN?
Let Yoga BEGIN course graduate, Paul Warner, enlighten you…

Week 2 had arrived, the nerves were still there but mixed with anticipation this time. The same pupils do the course, each week, so it felt more comfortable seeing faces I recognised…

Yoga – My Journey | Week 1

So what’s it really like to walk into a yoga studio and just BEGIN?
Let Yoga BEGIN course graduate, Paul Warner, enlighten you… (thanks Paul 🙌)

Yoga is for fit people.

Yoga is chanting.

Yoga is something trendy people do. Yoga is not for me!

All of these thoughts and more were in my head as I walked through the door of Yoga Local…

Yoga-In-Training: Introducing the journal

A list of the small stuff

Start where you are and keep going. It’s a great mantra for us all. Just get going and keep going.

So, that’s what this yogi-in-training is doing. Taking small steps, easy steps that feel good right away to move me a tad closer, any amount, to where I’m headed – a wildly successful yogi and business entrepreneur. (We can move small but there’s no reason to think small.)

Now, it’s hard to see how those little things add up, so I’m tracking them. I want to see how this all unfolds. What will be the long-term results of doing the work, showing up…?

Introducing the journal…. log it, blog it, just get it down on paper/screen and watch life change…

A list of the small stuff. Some of it, so far…
