Inviting More Lightness!


Hello lovely people,

   It has been a while since I last published anything so I am very happy to be back in the game this Free Yoga Friday! Today I am happy to share a short crow pose sequence shot on the beach with the help of wonderful friend- Tim.




  This week has got me thinking around a few questions and is bringing me many amazing insights :)

 I've been reflecting upon how I prioritise my time... and observing that when I don't prioritise my time then other people and situations do this for me!

You may wish to have a little reflection yourself!


  •  Where is your time going at the moment?
  • Did you decide this consciously or did it just happen this way?! 
  • Is there anything that is a real priority for you, that you can re-dedicate yourself to?


      I've also been reflecting on what exactly does one need to take seriously in ones life? 

     What happens if one chooses to take situations a little more lightly and playfully?

Things have been unfolding much more sweetly when I've been responding to life with lightness and love rather than heaviness and seriousness, and this is something I very much hope to carry forwards!

    I hope you enjoy this week's Crow Flow Video and that you experience the lightness of this wonderful pose as well as maybe a little more lightness of being.

     Namaste,
        :) Sacha

3 Tibetan Tools to Increase your happiness today...

Tibetan Buddhism is an ancient tradition that has spanned the centuries helping its practitioners to overcome suffering, increase compassion and find true, lasting happiness within.
  The Dalai Lama (world-renowned leader of the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddism), has won hearts around the globe for his warmth, down- to- earth wisdom and gentle social and political activism. Today I would love to share a few techniques he mentions in his book- The Art of Happiness (co-written with psychologist Howard Cutler), as well as to share with you a form of yoga that is alleged to have originated in Tibet over 2500 years ago.

1. Re-train your brain for happiness...
“A disciplined mind leads to happiness, and an undisciplined mind leads to suffering.”
― Dalai Lama XIV, The Art of Happiness In Buddism, it is common to reflect upon the causes of the good and bad circumstances in one's life and thus to take full responsibility for ones own thoughts and actions.

Happy International Yoga Day! Discover 3 important ways that yoga can uplift you today…

I first started yoga as a child.

I remember the awkward, anxious feeling in my body as I climbed the stairs to the yoga studio. I sat at the back of a room full of ‘grown-ups’ wondering what on earth I had let myself in for. I left that same room an hour later feeling as though I was floating on a cloud.

Yoga worked its magic on me that very first day and it has been a mainstay of my life ever since- through good times and bad, through health and injury, through times of celebration and deep inner work, yoga has always been there for me.
It is my honour and great pleasure to be a yoga teacher.

So today I would love to share with you a few of the things yoga has taught me that have brought me the most benefit in my life.


1. Your body (really is) your temple…

You only get one vehicle to take you through life and it can be a source of great pleasure or great suffering.

Look after your body with great food, yoga, walking, swimming and dance and there is really no end to the joy it can bring …

The Revolutionary Practice of Letting Go

Letting go is a theme that comes up time and time again, both in yoga classes and

in life.

Developing the ability to let go of things can make a huge difference to the quality of our lives and its

benefits are (at least) three-fold:

1.Change is the only constant so no matter how much we hope that certain things won’t change-

eventually they will! So practising the ability to let go allows us to gracefully adapt to necessary change.

2. Most of us acquire habits, thought patterns, and behaviours that do not really serve us. Learning to let

go of these traits can dramatically reduce our internal sense of suffering.

3. Even good things can become a burden when we have too much of them in our lives. For example,

our possessions can be a wonderful blessing, but if we have too many of them our homes become

cluttered and disorganised and at a certain point the downsides outweigh the benefits.

Learning to let go…
