What a transformation!

Phewwee. Yoga Local has officially arrived in its bricks and mortar home at Unit 5 Nene Court, The Embankment, Wellingborough after an incredible 3-day launch.  

Did it..! 👏 😅

Hard to believe in 5 short weeks we’ve transformed this…into… (go on take a look and see for yourself).

Clean Your Slate! Make Space for Magic to Happen in 2018.

Plus: A Peek Inside My 30 Day Cleanse

If you knew you couldn’t fail, what would you want for yourself next year?

What experiences are you hoping for?

How do you want to feel?

What emotions do you want more of?

When you ask yourself these questions, were any of your answers the same as those you had last year and the year before that? At the risk of voicing the depressingly obvious, does that not kinda suck… real bad?

3 yogi things to know for energy, flow and mojo.

Greetings yogi lovely. How’s your energy today?

You ever question why some days you wake up like a frickin Duracell bunny and rock a whole day with energy left to burn. Others you get to breakfast, clean your teeth and you’re done already? Maybe you’re done before that. :Hands In Head:

Not to worry my yogi friend. I’m here to tell you Yoga and its sister science, Ayurveda, has some answers but first here are three things to wrap your head around. Take a deep yoga breath…it’s a little heady.

The four obstacles to achieving your goals

And why it takes courage to confront your dream.

What’s stopping us from realising our dreams? What drives one person to go after what they want, desire or need and another to settle – make do.

Why do some of us ask for more out of life, question why we’re here, and whether what we have achieved is what we even wanted in the first place?

And, while I’m at it, why do some people know what they really, really, REALLY, want, and others have no clue, or simply never ask?

Interested in exploring this with me? Come on in.

More on overcoming hard choices…Don’t resist

The devil is not in the detail, it’s in the denial.

Resistance is our enemy. That’s what author, Steven Pressfield tells me in his book, The War of Art.

Resistance is there any time it comes to making that first step – to meditate, take a yoga class, eat right, pursue a new career, end a relationship, pop the question, write a blog or any activity that rejects an instant fix in favour of long term growth, health or wellbeing. Put simply, any good choice we know to be good for us.

If we let it, resistance will start throwing up excuses of why we can’t, shouldn’t, won’t do what we know we need to do. Stuff like:

How to overcome making hard choices…

Part 1 …like starting a meditation practice.

Is the motivation to do what’s good for you hit and miss? You ate well all week, so tonight – what the heck, show me the ice cream…

Most of us know what’s good for us, but choosing right is hard. How so?

In Deepak Chopra’s and Rudolph Tanzi’s latest book, Super Genes, it throws up some answers.

According to my spiritual teacher, Deepak, and his genetic expert friend Tanzi, choice making it turns out is a skill. One we can cultivate and get better at to the point that eventually what we once thought was an impossibly hard choice (for us, but not necessarily everyone) becomes easy.

The secret?

Do less, achieve more.

Sound good? Here’s how.

If you’ve been spoon-fed on a menu of mantras like ‘no pain, no gain’, and ‘work hard, play hard’, you might be rolling your eyes around now at the idea of doing less and achieving more. Bear with me.

Nothing wrong with being driven, focused, consistent or passionate but stop sharpening those elbows for a second and ask yourself, how much are you forcing your way through life? And at what expense to your feelings of yumminess?

The perfect lesson at Perfect Health

Perfect Health Graduates February 2015 And probably not so perfect post…..oh well. Seems odd that during the last stretch of teacher training for Deepak’s Perfect Health programme, one lesson to really learn was – ‘don’t try to be so perfect’. Let me explain. It’s February 16, 2015 and I’m back in La La Chopra…

Yogi in training. How to uncover your true self.

I read this week that the desire to live authentically is a natural drive within us all. My true self has always been seeking to show itself. I hear bells ringing. So, has it? Let’s see. Have I always expressed my unique nature – damn right. Have I sought to break free from past…

How do you become a yogi? What’s the plan?

How do you become a Yogi? Is it something you train for – set goals, work up a schedule… What steps are required to make it happen, what order, for how long? I like, no LOVE, lists. If I’m starting something I always have list and a plan. Whether that’s a 12 week triathlon…
