Change Your Story

We tell ourselves the same old worn out story. Re-write it & change your life. 

This workshop is about discovering the work that you were born to do. In yoga we call it dharma, our truth, and the work that lights us up.
As we make our way through life it's easy to loose track of who we are and what is possible. We play small, have the same crazy conversations over in our heads, hope that one day we'll find the courage to change. But that inner voice won't go away until you 'have a go.' Until you value yourself. Ignoring it only leads to malaise, depression and regret.​ 
You will be amazed at what is possible. Don't allow another year....or ten, or more to pass.

What lights you up?

Strip away all the old worn out, crappy stories, the layers of unhelpful beliefs, habits and obligations and discover your bigger story underneath. Remeber what lights you up and leave with a sense of renewal and inspired to take the next step.

This workshop is for you, if you... 

Are fed up having the same old conversations with yourself?

Lack clarity as to what to focus on next?

Are semi-retired/retired/recent graduate and looking for what's next?

Want a different lifestyle to what you have?

Are returning from a career break and not sure what's next?

Want to connect with awesome like minded people? 

One day you finally knew what you had to do & began

Frequently asked questions...

Q). I have never done yoga ? 

A)  No experience is necessary. If you can breathe you can do yoga. 

Q). Why do we need to have a telephone call before I join the workshop ? 

A)  To ensure that this workshop is mutually right for both of us at this time

Q)  I am nervous about sharing within a group?  

A)  That's understandable. Learning to share is a part of personal transformation

Q)  I am afraid in case I fail?

A)   Most people are terrified of trying and failing - we've been conditioned to believe that failure is something to be avoided at all costs. The only real failure is not trying something in the first place, or giving up after a few failed attempts. Success is built through failure - not through avoidance of risk of failure.  

Q)  I don't have the money to do this workshop?

A)     Often this feels like a compelling reason. I understand, I've been there. But for the price of a visit to the hairdresser you could change the course of your life.

The voice inside your head is hoping you will take a chance on yourself.

Invest wisely and create a life you don't need to escape from.

Q)  I'm not sure I have the time to do this workshop?

A)  We all have the same 24 hours in a day. Annie Dillard wrote "How we spend our days, is of course, how we spend our lives." Time passes quickly. Choose your priorities carefully.

 

Q)  I should be able to do this by myself?

A)  Most people don't. I didn't. I found my own teachers, workshops, books, yoga teachers, nutritionists and supportive community. It's taken me a while and I couldn't have done it without them all.
