    Start each day with a grateful heart

    'Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.' - Melody Beattie

    Resting on Silver Island.

    When we take time to tune into our para sympathetic nervous system then our ‘rest and digest’ response happens. We become calmer, rested, think more clearly, breathe better, even digest our food better!

    A new year a New You - 4 important reasons for going on a yoga retreat!

    A very good reason to start with, is the importance of a Digital Detox! We are so used to carrying around a small, hand-held computer device in our hand on a daily basis that we feel naked without these tools for social networking, news updates and means to do business.

    Silver Island and Shelf Making

    Every now and then it is good to do something out of one’s comfort zone. So with that mantra in mind this year I did just that. My sister had mentioned going to pick olives on Silver Island in Greece. Helena, our Acupuncturist here in Ananda Centre, is good friends with the owners. So it was out of my comfort zone but not totally scarey!

    I was quite excited to learn that we had a resident seal living around the island when I first arrived in 2012. Keen on making him part of the family I felt that naming him would be the next logical step and why not introduce a bit of my own language in my new foreign home. With more than enough water for the christening I named him ROB (the Afrikaans word for a seal). There was no objections from the bench so ROB was henceforth to be called ROB.

    The birth of Silver Island Yoga

    Silver Island has always held a very special place in my heart. As a young girl, our family would spend long wonderful summers on the island. Thinking back, my memories are ones of absolute freedom, the engulfing sound of thousands of united cicadas, the silky feel of the turquoise sea with the golden sun on my skin, the feeling of never wanting to leave and the tears that fell when we got on the boat and waved good bye.
