#Want the Freedom
…to be me
…to do what I want
…to feel safe and happy
…to be love
…to feel love
…to see who I want to
…to know who I am
…to express me as I am
…to live fully
…not to be locked into…

Each of us has our story of what Freedom means to us individually! How is your story currently running for you? Is it a negative loop, low self-talk or is it one of Inspiration and Enthusiasm? Is there a continuous feedback link of negativity? What words are in your head and in your conversations? Are we even asking the “right” questions when trying to find the “correct” answers?

Life is not always rainbows’ and pots of gold, but what are we doing in the good times to sustain us through the “bad/tougher times”.

Can we pick up or maintain a practice in which we find our truths, that peels away the layers of negativity and allows us some freedom to be in a place of having the freedom to be, who, say and do what we want.

Too much self-talk – Too much over-thinking – Too much in our heads
What activity can still the fluctuations of the mind? What is best for you to bring you into the presence of this moment and still the self-talk/thoughts? What practice changes the way you see, the thoughts you think, the words you choose and the way you feel?

I came across this link many years ago in a positive psychology course and the message is powerful, so please click on the link.



“If not now, then when?” – Hillel the Elder

YOGA -the union and connection to this moment:

Stop the self-talk
To release from the over-thinking critical self-talk.
To still a busy mind.
Too often in our head
To bring us into our body and away from our thoughts.

Mind – Body – Breath connected as ONE! It will change our words, thoughts and actions.

Find an activity that you become one with and find your freedom.


Change your pose

When in class this week, take some time and try and create a different shape in the posture. In that change what do you experience?

I have done many years of yoga and an amazing physio many years ago said to me, “stop bending from the same place”. It was like a lightbulb moment as for years in practice, I’d bend from where I knew to, I’d get adjusted in classes and try to get deeper into my practice but whilst I do the poses and love the feel of deepening, in fact I’ve had to hold out, stabilise and strengthen in so many areas instead of surrendering into a pose.

For example, when I’m teaching classes I try to stop bending in the same place each time in a pose. I’m trying to stabilise my hips, engage my hamstrings, glutes and quads and generally after so many years of flexibility I’m changing the way I do my poses and finding benefits for me, in where I currently need to work. Adapt and CHANGE.

What can you change and where do you feel it? Is there a change in your practice that may help you. Is it about surrendering, strengthening or stabilising? Even the most subtle of alignment changes can make a BIG LITTLE difference.

Make a change this week and notice what changes for you.

Blessings and Namaste Lou xo
