Why do we practice YOGA?
Yoga is something we can all do. No matter how, where or when. We can all be in the state of yoga no matter what.
“Yoga practice is at its most transformational when we use it as a way to restore, nurture, and expand a loving, compassionate relationship with ourselves. We do this not only for ourselves but also because doing so changes the way we see others and interact with the world around us.”
I have just completed a Teacher Training on Meditation in Bali. I was MIA for a week.
Thank you all that covered for me.
Thank you to the students that missed me
My heart is full of gratitude.
By my taking training, it gives me more to give to you and I want to be able to give you all that I can so that you can be in your YOGA as best as you can.

How Mindfulness Can Help
Each of us has this inherent quality, but we don’t necessarily use it, and it’s when we’re not being true to ourselves that we need it the most. When we have a heightened awareness of who we are, we can be that much more conscious of making sure that our sense of self is a clear one.
That means we are willing to be very honest with ourselves so that, if or when, we’re about to slip into being someone we’re not — which can be anything from people pleasing, or being afraid to show our true self for fear of not being loved — we immediately note it and bring our focus and awareness right back to the self that is most real and sincere.
We don’t realize how often we slip out of present moment awareness of the authentic self, and then, before we know it, we can feel frustrated and even depleted. That’s because we’ve been presenting a less genuine part of ourselves to others, as if we’re playing a role, which can happen when we feel self-conscious or insecure. By practicing mindfulness consistently, you will become much more cognizant of when you’re about to throw your authentic self under the bus, and immediately stop yourself from doing it.
Advocate for Yourself
A good way to catch yourself is to notice whenever you’re feeling a sense of uncertainty, doubt, or fear, which is always an indicator that we might be susceptible to hiding or concealing our authentic self.
Immediately say something silently to yourself, such as:
- “I am enough”
- “I don’t need to pretend”
- “There’s nothing for me to fear”
- “It’s okay to be who I really am”
- “I am worthy of love”
These are just a few examples of how to advocate for yourself if, even for a moment, you forget that the only self that should be front and centre is your authentic self.
From me to you so much love and gratitude
Sue and of course the YB team
