Kundalini Yoga App

Meditation is Action is so aptly named. The idea came in a meditation that put this app into action – which I believe is why you meditate (Intention, Creation, Action) The app is based on Kundalini Yoga which I practice and teach. I frequently use it when working with clients. All yoga and meditation works but I believe Kundalini Yoga is the fastest, most efficient and truly effective. Just 3 minutes will change your mood, your energy and hence your...

How I happened to design an app?

How I happened to design an app? If you had told me a year ago. I would design an app I would have looked at your sideways and said ‘Yeah right’ as in ‘No Wrong’ But really do we know what we or the world will do next? When we are tuned into our intuiton and have chosen to live into our soul’s journey. ‘We hear our guidance and then we allow it to unfold.’ It’s a perfect example of...

Prosperity Mantra – Ganpati Kriya

These times they are a changing. I am experiencing prosperity in so many areas of my life. My health is good (despite an injury). I feel very loved and supported by family and friends. I love the work I am doing. I love yoga on the beach and I love the swim that follows. and the coffee after that. I love my life, really I do. That said I have never been so financially challenged. My father would often say with...

I do yoga to do life. Why do you yoga?

I have 'done' yoga in the way that many people now describe travelling. They say 'I've done South America, I've done Italy.' As though one could ever have done any more than barely skimmed the surface of a place by visiting it or travelling through it. A brief glimpse at best. So while I had 'done' yoga for more than 20 years now it wasn't until I found Kundalini Yoga about 5 years ago that I can say I delved deeply enough into...

Would you risk it for a biscuit?

'There is no discovery without risk and what you risk reveals what you value.' Jeannette Wintersen, Written on the Body This quote often pops into my head in moments of doubt. Life is a risky business. It is said we are more motivated to move away from pain than towards pleasure. We can invest endless amounts of energy into making something safe and then the rug can be pulled out from under our feet. By others, sickness, economies, politics, weather, serendipity and the...

Happy Independence Day

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="670"] English: The New York City fireworks over the East Village of New York City. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)[/caption] Today is 4th of July. I'm upstate New York. I arrived last night and spent the first 30 minutes getting throughly soaked to the skin, trying to arrest a pool of water that was rapidly filling outside my friend's back door from a newly formed waterfall; a result of a hurricane sweeping the east coast. It had been predicted...

What’s White Tantric Yoga?

As soon as people hear the word tantric, their ears immediately prick up. They listen more intently thinking sex:-)                                                                                               tickled by the possibility of hearing something titillating. Well white tantric yoga has nothing...

I’ve been found missing . . .

[caption id="attachment_818" align="alignnone" width="3117"] Eilish Bouchier Summer Solstice 2014[/caption] Last week I went to 3ho's summer solstice in New Mexico. It's the home of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan so it was only a matter of time before I got there. Like many things in my life the idea comes. I sit on it for a while, then if it persists I check the logistics. My intuition was telling me I needed to go to connect with the community. I needed...

The Courage to attempt it and to keep up. The Grit to go through it. The Humility to know who the Doer is. The Knowledge to substantiate it. The Prayer to feed it. The Grace to carry yourself through it. The Determination to achieve it. Yogi Bhajan Oh! how often we are reminded that this...
