"India is Calling". Increasingly this mantra hypnotised me on the journey to becoming a committed yoga teacher not yet in India but still at Coogee Wylies Baths (WB).
As a yoga teacher, I chose to teach exclusively at WB, preferring it's spacious beauty & serenity for my growing following as an emerging yogi . The outdoor experience of connecting to nature whilst practicing yoga brings a calm balance back into ones body mind and spirit.
A rejuvenating swim in the cool ocean of Wylies pool is always an added bonus on offer for my yoga students. Teaching yoga at WB has unfolded from being a dream, to become my reality once I discovered that working part time in the corporate world enabled me to make ends meet.
The truth is though yoga teaching can be a lonely journey, and I began to feel lost and uninspired after three years of it.
Increasingly I have felt the need to connect with other women to gain a deeper understanding of what they wanted from their yoga practice. Also, I became aware that what I needed was a mentor or in Indian culture terms a “swami” to guide me deeper through my personal yoga practice & into my yoga teaching.
Yogic wisdom teaches that when you let the universe know what you want, it will speak back to you.
Within 6 months, I had run two local yoga retreats at an Indian style Ashram an hour outside of Sydney and my yoga student Sheryl Simantov, invited me to lead her yoga tour to India. I was thrilled & accepted!
This shared retreat experience and my connection with Sheryl inspired a more courageous journey with a circle of women who shared the same yearning to experience India.
So here I am, on this first of many more adventures to India ..this time with 9 wonderful women committed to 9 days of fun and deeper understanding of self through the experience of yoga beyond the stunning beauty of Wylie's Coogee to the overwhelming depth and challenge of yoga all around “incredible India “!
Follow me on this amazing journey to India and join me, and dare to gift yourself this indulgent trip to India in November 2018. You will be a better woman for it!!!
