If you’re new to yoga, or only been doing it for a short amount of time, the language used to describe styles of yoga can become overwhelming and confusing. Even when you go and Google these terms, there’s never really a straight forward answer as to what to expect. You just want to do, “yoga”, right? Well, when signing up to a practice it’s nice to know what you’re in for and which practice is going to suit your body best.Continue reading “Vinyasa vs Yin Yoga – What’s the difference? – Jan 2021”
I combined all my favourite bits from previous blog posts about travelling and put them all in a neat little article.
I wrote this for Intuitive Wisdom, a wonderful site by Laura all about feeling full and gooey inside.
You can read my article here, but here’s a little taste as well:Continue reading “Warrior Wednesday: As we learn to swim.”
I want to write a really good, well-worded blog post about this. Because I have this platform that can, perhaps, make a difference – to help in this fight.
But, at the end of the day. I’m white. And I feel that right now, it’s really important to leave the internet for voices that have been suppressed.
If you’d like to read another blog of a strong, incredible woman to understand more, please read Mae’s blog about her experiences. It’s so important that we understand, learn and grow through this.
If you don’t have money to donate, go to Youtube and let the videos roll through that will support the Black Lives Matter movement. Spotify has something similar.
In the meantime, I won’t be writing blog posts. You can still, always reach out to me via Instagram @mermaidyogaadventures, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Whatsapp +61404455663. I’m still running yoga classes as well if you’d just like to get on your mat and flow.
I encourage you all, at this time, to really sit and listen. Don’t get angry. Don’t get fragile. Just witness the pain and do everything you can to make yourself a better person, even if it means breaking down everything and starting again. Read everything and learn as much as you can. I know that’s what I’m doing during this time. And if you’re looking for resources, please reach out. If I don’t know, I’ll find someone who does.
This is history. This a movement, not a moment.
What can a travel writer write about when no one can travel? With borders internationally, and even statewide closed due to the global pandemic, it seems that all we do is stay put.
For the past 5 years, I have constantly been in a state of being away travelling or looking forward to the next time that I go overseas.
So, what is there to look forward to now? And also, what the hell do I write about?Continue reading “Memories of India – May 2020”
It’s been probably the longest I’ve ever gone between blog posts. Why? Well, it’s obvious, isn’t it? I’m not travelling. I’m staying at home and pressing pause on life.
I’ve been trying to keep warm – an issue that I haven’t had to worry about in a very long time. I’m not working so, therefore, not saving. So it’s really just downtime. Just time to do puzzles, listen to podcasts and watch movies.
And that’s ok.Continue reading “A time to pause – May 2020”
What can you do at home? Don’t be tempted to go outside with this fine list of things you can do.Continue reading “A Guide For Staying At Home – March 2020”
So, what can we do now? Nothing is open, we’re not together or socialising and none of us can work (or, at least, not many of us). There’s a spooky, empty feeling going around that shadows over all of us. So, how about we just create things instead?
I was thinking the other day, however, that it seems the entire world is being forced to do what I’ve chosen to do. I’ve come home to spend time doing internal work. Winter is coming to Melbourne, which I haven’t experienced in three years. I know now that winter is a time to go inwards, to heal and to do the work.Continue reading “Create, Week 1 – March 2020”
Once again, the question I’m being asked most these days is “how does it feel to be home?”
And the answer is the same as it was the last two times I came home; it’s weird. But I think I can identify the weirdness a little easier now due to some reflection.Continue reading “Home vs The World – March 2020”
I’ve spent the last week at Envision Festival. I went totally off the grid in the jungle of Costa Rica. When I say off-grid, I mean that I turned my phone off and closed my laptop down. Although I had over 100 unread WhatsApp messages to read when I did re-enter cyberspace, it was a well-needed break from screens so that I could connect to something else.Continue reading “Envision – February 2020”
I have settled into my new paradise. It’s my paradise as there’s everything I could want here; a beautiful yoga space, baby turtles and the ocean.
I have settled in a tiny little lodge called Surfing Turtle Lodge, near the town of Penoloya in Nicaragua.Continue reading “Paradise Found, Nicaragua – January 2020”
