I have been sitting on the computer tonight, just surfing the web. One thought keeps popping into my mind. It is yoga, yoga, yoga. It truly has made the most amazing changes to my life. When I am practicing regularly, I feel so alive, in line, attuned, healthy, light, blissful and I could keep writing words about how I feel. ( I won't because you get the picture) It truly does change who you are on a deep deep level, it makes me so much more aware, of the things that are going on around me. It takes me out of my me me me attitude and see life from a broader perspective. It makes me so incredibly grateful, for all of the many blessings I have in my life. And I get in touch with me, the real me, raw open and truly awake, and for that I am so forever indebted to the wonderful practice of yoga.

A few weeks ago I turned 30.
It's funny when your little 30 seems so grown up, but now I am here I feel just the same!
The last week of my 20's I was thinking about all of the things, I wanted to let go of.
I was going to write in my journal all of the things that no longer served me. Thoughts, ways of being but as I sat down to write a feeling came over me, and I decided that instead I am going to be grateful. For all the things that I did, the lessons I learnt and the journeys I had, and the beautiful people I met.
I feel renewed as a 30 year old women, I feel like now I have a voice, now I have a few life lessons behind me, now instead of chasing so desperately for things I am simply going to allow, and let things easily flow into my life.
Already it has happened! Today I found out I have a new space for my business. One that is bigger and better.
One that will allow me to do things my way, and help see the business expand.
I am so excited and am loving this new phase in my wonderful life.
I wonder where my 30's will take me?

We have a new family member his name is Chip.
He is as cute as pie. It is lovely and tiring to have this new energy in the house, he is busy exploring his new world and discovering what feels good in his mouth as he chews his way through our things.
I have felt really inspired over the past couple of days to put some fresh energy into my business we have painted the salon.
It is crisp white with a aqua blue feature wall, I love it the salon looks so much bigger and the feeling of being renewed has taken over, both in myself and in the salon!
I feel as if over the past few weeks, that I have wanted to bury my head down deep in the sand, and let life flow over me! But the last few days that has shifted which is so nice.
I am ready to get back out there with my yoga teaching, and the salon is so busy and for that I am grateful!
I have just finished reading mamamia by Mia Freedman and it was fantastic!
She wrote in a way that I relate to, she was so honest and open.
I love when people are like that, I guess because I am that way.
At times though I wish I was a little quieter with what I share, but that is how I connect and by reading about Mia I feel that she does the same!

I have just been on the most amazing holiday to Vanuatu. The island and people are so beautiful untouched by our modern western world. The people there live a simple life, compared to our crazy complexed world over here in OZ.
It made me have a good long look at my life and see that all the rushing around and trying so hard to make things happen is not worth all the fuss.
What really matters is family, making memories, and being true to myself and having a connection to spirit and if you open yourself up to living like this things just flow freely.

A HOPI ELDER SPEAKS
“You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you must go back and tell the people that this is THE HOUR. And there are things to be considered…
Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your Truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, “This could be a good time! There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly. Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water. And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally. Least of all, ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt. The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.

My journey into my unravelling has taken me on a deeper, and more thoughtful path.
Through taking photos of myself and writing, I am focusing on what I need and want!
I love that I am unveiling hidden thoughts that may have been lurking around, slowing me down from moving forward!
I love love taking photos of myself, and even though I never look how I think I do I am finding it refreshing to see myself how others do.
My personal yoga practice has deepened, and I think that is helping me to shift some old energy.
I am loving who I am finding under the surface of my everyday thoughts and every day actions.
There seems to be a pause and detachment to my surroundings so that I can take it all in and be very present!
Let's see where this unravelling will lead me next!

I am excited about my new course unravelling.
I am looking forward, to unveiling deeper layers of myself.
As my inner thoughts and desires boil to the surface I will enjoy shinning light onto them. Helping to know more about me and what inspires, motivates, and makes me jump out of bed each morning.
I truly live an amazing life, and am so lucky to have the time and space to explore all of this about myself, and those around me.
So hello to all my new unravelling friends.

Today I decided that if all the signs and little nudges led me in the right direction I am going to sign up for yoga teacher training two
I have been teaching since 06 and love sharing the amazing gift of yoga. Seeing all my beautiful students walk into my class unsettled, and stressed become relaxed, in tune and happy inspires me so much!
I feel an inner urge to reconnect with my teachers and their energy!
So I went into the salon this morning and said to myself
"If I have no clients booked in next Thur the day (the course starts), then that is my sign and I will enroll"
I was so excited when no one was booked in, so here I go again, in a life changing direction.
As you go deeper into the teachings of yoga you unveil hidden layers of your personality, your body and your mind!
You never know what may come up for you. I love it because it brings you into a state of deeper connection with yourself and with what is really going on for you!
There is no hiding on the yoga mat. It helps to make you really present and really in tune with your body and mind and what you really need!
So I am excited on where my journey will take me, and will reveal more as it unfolds for me.

As you think, so you become.
As are your thoughts, so must be your life.
The world around you is only what you believe it to be.
The limit of your thoughts is the limit of your possibilities.

This is my favourite girl Sooty.
I love the way she smells.(after a bath)
I love the way she has endless energy.
I love the way she greets me, when I come home.
I love the way she has a look in her eyes, like she knows exactly what's going on.
I love that she is always up for a cuddle.
I love the way she brings life to our back yard.
I love the way she looks at a tennis ball.
I love that she is my best friend.
I wrote this at 5.30 am one morning as my partner road his bike around a park!
I love the cool and quietness of the beginning of a new day.
Fresh of yesterdays energy, thoughts not yet filtered through the lens of the past. Not fully awake enough to be planning, or thinking about the future.
Maybe that's why meditation is so wonderful and deep in the early hours of a new day.

My first blog, my first post!
I have been looking forward to this day for weeks!!
I feel as if this is the birth of a new, and exciting path for me.
I am stepping into my new life, the one I am passionate about,
the one I jump out of bed in the morning for.
The one that breaks open my chest, and lets my heart sing it's little heart out.
The one where I listen closely to the whisperings inside and follow their callings.
The one where I dance to my own beat.
The one where I am, truly me!
Welcome to my blog I hope you enjoy the journey as it unfolds.
