Blissology means to me “An Outlet for Love” Immense gratitude for Life, Nature and Communities. Eoin is our “Conduit” we harness to his connection and allow his teachings to flow through us and spread it out into our communities.
What are 2 of your favourite songs for Yoga?
Silence ~ (Sanctuary Mix, featuring Sarah McLachlan) Delerium. If this is playing in Kaptasana I often see my husband tapping his fingers makes me smile. “Forgotten Temple” Savasana it reminds me of Bali, and my teacher training, it’s calming and it helps me instil this in my closing practice.
What books are you reading?
I am often picking up Anatomy of Movement & constantly reading Yoga literature online.
Awakening the Spine ~ Vanda Scaravelli
I am always a sucker for a romance novel, Nora Roberts novels, my favourite presently, sometimes I just need to check out & shut off my brain!
Why do you Yoga?
I love the feeling of “Lightness” both physically & mentally—this is what Yoga gives me.
How do you share Blissology with your community?
When your still place inside is filled regularly with moments of awe, I wake to the ever changing lagoon or ocean, surrounding landscapes that take my breath away, this creates peace in my life, it is easy to radiated this into my relationship and cruising community. So Grateful I share my life & love of yoga with my partner John. My sailing/cruising community travel the globe & we help support each other daily, I give back through my yoga teachings, love sharing my Blissology Inspired Yoga with them.
