My Anchor.

My Anchor.

This past week I have been feeling a bit flat, low & lacking in emotional support. Being a mum of 2 energetic boys, a busy housewife, and a yoga teacher I find it challenging to create time for myself to be a woman, to be Polly. On Sunday I left everything and went for a […]

Disconnect to reconnect

WE ARE OFF!!! Once more the wee Yoga Frog family is taking a weekend away, disconnecting from outside influences to spend some quality time together.

What if…

What if…

How many times I thought… “If I were just a little bit taller, If I could loose just a little bit more weight, if my eyebrows were a bit thicker, If my cheek were a bit smaller and my boobs a bit bigger…” If, if, if… I was hoping to be something else than what […]

But of course thoughts came and went, sensations arose and fell away. Many times a desire to stop meditating came and went, and I thought “It is like part of me […]

“I Just do Yoga…” – Dairy of a Yogini, Day 7.

The other day I was talking to a friend about our upcoming Spring Yoga Workshop in Galashiels, Scotland and was telling him that the workshop would involve Mantras, Mudras, Pranayama, Meditation… He said to me “I just do Yoga, I don’t do all that other stuff…”.

The Ripple Effect, Diary of a Yogini – Day 6

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day here in south Wales… Elijah and I decided that it would be nice to get the pushbike and go to the park. On our way we saw this group of 6 or so teenagers walking around, having fun. And then something happen. One of the boys deliberately “dropped” his […]
