The only place peace can start is with you. Your own peaceful heart will spread peace to everyone you meet.

I’ve been learning how to standup paddle board (SUP) these summer holidays. It’s been good fun and works my body a little differently than my yoga practice.
I have also been trying to apply the principles of yoga to it. It is hard when you are concentrating on learning something new. But I love the beginners mind. So open and fresh.
The trick is applying it to the things we know well to allow a fresh perspective. 🧘♀️
Have you tried anything new this year yet, or are you planning to?
“The end is always the beginning”.
I hope your New Year is off to a great start.
That’s the thing about beginnings and ends. As opposites, they are always together, each informing the other. Some have said they are happy to see the end of 2017, excited about 2018, but we need them both. We learnt heaps in 2017 and we wouldn’t be able to be as engaged in 2018 without those lessons. So welcome both. The end and the beginning. The beginning and it’s ultimate end.
YogaHara has heaps of ways to begin your year starting with our holiday program beginning on Monday for two weeks and our introductory course starting on the 22nd.
All the info is in the bio link.
5 Week Introductory Yoga Course
This popular course is starting again on January 22nd at 7.15pm. It is the perfect place to start if you haven't practice yoga before. We work through some foundation poses, breathing techniques, meditation and relaxation. There is also a bit pf philosophy about what yoga actually is and how it can change your life.
We are also passionate about working with you just as you are.
This course always books out so get in sooner rather than risk missing out.

Today is my Mum’s birthday. Yep, New Years Day. It can be tricky celebrating out of the house as nothing is open so this year we are taking the folks to the big smoke for lunch and visiting the kids/grandkids.
This week I enjoyed spending a couple of days away to recharge and enjoy some of the wonderful installations at @ngvmelbourne’s #ngvtriennial exhibition.
This is me being ‘obliterated’ by flowers in the Yayoi Kusama exhibit ‘flower obsession’. Her inspiration for the work was on the wall at the entrance:
“One day, after gazing at a pattern of red flowers on the tablecloth, I looked up to see that the ceiling, the windows, and the columns seemed to be plastered with the same red floral pattern.
I saw the entire room, my entire body, and the entire universe covered with red flowers, and in that instant my soul was obliterated and I was restored, returned to infinity, to eternal time and absolute space.
This was not an illusion, but reality itself." So beautiful and powerful.
