Honor your own light,‬
‪before you expect someone else to.‬

‪Love your own self,‬
‪before you expect someone else to.‬

‪Vibrate higher your own self,‬
‪before you expect someone else to.‬

‪Be a better person your own self,‬
‪before you expect someone else to.‬

‪May what you desire to see in‬ others,
‪start within you—first. ‬

Mastering yoga takes time….In the beginning I wanted too much too soon…I ended up hurting myself. You need to let your body tell you when.. Let your body guide you.  Hard work and discipline really pay off. Yoga is also about meditation. Reflecting about your life, your growth.  Its about self forgiveness and loving yourself.

I’m a woman who runs with the wolves..They represent so much of how I feel, Of what I want in life. Duality…Following your heart, gut and female intuition. Soft, wholesome girl and the wild passionate women inside..Play and love. Instinct and challenge. Home and adventure. First, I want to be able to not only live, but thrive, on my own and with someone. Being alone has a way of guiding you to those creaky, cobwebby, eggshelly places in our being. To Be in it, truly without attachment or dependency. Sharing my life with someone..being loved and love in return..also let me evolve and grow into a stronger person.  I am so thankful for the special souls in my world who have been here with me, walked this path, together, with love and respect, with complete allowance and acceptance. I am equally grateful for the lessons learnt through great heart ache and pain. Lessons I learned from immense love and passion.  This is what I know: in this life, a steady love, and a place to call home, are far more precious than any earthly possessions or wealth in this world. I will use what I have for growth, change for others and myself. My grandparents gave me that gift and I will pay it forward! I’ve been loved and left  heartbroken, alone and together…May this next chapter be one of wild love, adventure, and most of all ..home.

Alternatives to Yoga, for Catholics

The New Year is an ideal time to begin to put into action your new plans and resolutions for the year ahead.

Health is wealth, and it is vital to take care of your body via diet and of course, regular exercise.

If like me, you hate the idea of going to the gym, there are lots of other activities to help keep you fit.

Yoga seems to be very popular, but as Catholics and Christians, we know that Yoga is not permissible due to it being based on Hindu philosophies and Eastern mystical theologies which is in dissonance with Christianity. 

Here are some alternatives to yoga you can use:

BALLET:

I am a big fan of ballet, which combines dance, stretching, flexibility and also strength training.  It not only improves your posture, strength and flexibility, but it can keep you trim and fit too. 

I am naturally very slim so I don’t do much cardio or fat-burning exercises, however ballet is a very good way to improve muscle tone and core strength.  

PILATES:

Originally created to help athletes recover quicker from their injuries, pilates is fast becoming popular.  It makes a great alternative to yoga as it also helps you improve flexibility, endurance and strength.  I also practise pilates and rotate between this and ballet 2-3 times a week for my strength and flexibility.

CALISTHENICS:

I used to do this years ago and rather enjoyed it.  A lot of men will love this too if they find Ballet not challenging enough.  Calisthenics helps improve muscular and aerobic conditioning, as well as improving, balance, agility and coordination.

Good men and women do exist, 

lots of them actually.  

You just have to—elevate to the

frequency they vibrate on,

in order to see and attract them.

Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.
