Video: Sri Pattabhi Jois

When I saw this recently on Youtube, I felt like I was watching a very private moment in Pattabhi Jois' life. I think it shows the father/grandfather that he was; as well as being a wonderful yoga guru. Very touching!

Quote of the day ...

I try to give to the poor people for love what the rich could get for money. No, I wouldn't touch a leper for a thousand pounds; yet I willingly cure him for the love of God.
Mother Teresa

Quote of the day ...

An individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.

Filming prenatal yoga

I spent the Saturday filming a prenatal yoga shoot. I have to say give me back-to-back yoga classes any day; they are far easier. I found the experience both fun and exhausting. I take my hat off to the people involved in TV, film and media who do this every day as it really is not as easy as it may seem.

It is a big learning curve for me, but definitely a great fun day, with a fab team. Below is a photo of Yoga Mama in between shots. More info to follow...

Video: Yogin

A fun and clever yoga animation. You can't reach enlightment on self-will alone.

Quote of the day ...

Ennui has made more gamblers than avarice, more drunkards than thirst, and perhaps as many suicides as despair.
