One of the greatest rewards of my work as a yoga teacher is getting to know, learn from and be inspired by the people who take my courses. As we’re gearing up for the next round of 30 Days of Yoga, we wanted to stop and put the stoplight on a few of the students […]

Do you have a few words of encouragement for fellow home-practising yogis — or those wanting to get started?

Why I Teach 30 Days of Yoga (which starts on Monday!)

Monday, January 13th, 2014

I’m writing from Sydney — where I’m leading a weekend workshop exploring how yoga supports us in getting clearer about both our purpose and our shadow, helps us cultivate the compassion to meet all of ourselves with kindness and develop the courage and creativity to express our unique purpose in the world in a way […]

Workshops in Sydney & Melbourne in January

If you are down-under – come join me. And if you are far away, consider joining me anyway. There’s no […]
