Get Calm, The Human Zoo and Sebastien Tellier

Our mountain hut, at night, looks out from this fortunate rock, through our atmosphere, into the vast ventricles of space and time. So many questions. We listen to Sebastien Tellier’s album, ‘Universe’ which, if you don’t already know already, is gorgeous.  Tellier writes beautifully and sometimes sticks a fag in his nose.

‘Unity in Diversity’ – The Ashtanga Yoga Bali Research Centre Conference 2019

Ashtanga Yoga has split. Some Ashtangis practice and teach only what Sharath Jois says is right. Some are willing to apply what they’ve learnt over time to modify and diversify the practice. The debate has caused big riffs and many teachers have been stripped of their KPJAYRI authorisation to teach. It all seems incredibly un-yogic.

It’s you or the practice – Ashtanga Yoga Mysore immersion day 8

As the Retreat Chef, I’m usually knee deep in turmeric, cashews and banana flour while everyone else is on a journey of self-discovery on the mat. However, fresh out of our recent Bali yoga retreat, I’ve decided to embark on a three week Ashtanga Yoga Mysore immersion at the Ashtanga Yoga Bali Research Centre (AYBRC). I’m in the very capable hands of the globally regarded and super lovely, Team Pradha, Anthony ‘Prem’ Carlisi and Heather ‘Radha’ Carlisi.
