Be careful what you wish for

This happened last night in Johannesburg... My first ever stand up comedy gig!! I feel so proud to have stood up on that stage! A beautiful reminder to let go of the fruits of our actions and just be there, as our expected outcomes or lack thereof often totally paralyze…

The journey home

I first came across "yoga" in 1989 as Granny Karin taught it from her home where we used to stay as a family for Christmas holidays in Fish Hoek, South Africa. Almost 30 years later I am starting to appreciate the true essence of yoga and it's transformational effects, for…
