Yoga Elder, Ayurvedic Lifestyle Coach, Artist and Author ….journeying towards living an awakened and joyful life

Yoga is not just a physical practice…..it offers the pathway to health, happiness and compassion. Yoga is about awakening to a higher intelligence and finding your way back to your true essence. It allows us to shed the restriction of the ego and to let go of deep rooted habits and behaviour that leaves us stuck in repetitive destructive thought patterns and behaviour.  And it starts with one simple decision to commit. Commit to taking responsibility for your health and your happiness.

This is the decision I made, and make everyday, as I try and live a conscious, spiritual, creative and compassionate life. Whether it is through my actions, words or thoughts, each day I try and live in harmony and union with the Universal Energy that connects us all together.

What keeps life fascinating is the constant creativity of the soul.

And I am here to help you when you have made that decision. Whether you decide to dip your big toe in or to take a huge step onto the path of Yoga, Creativity and Spirituality…..I am here to guide you on your journey, either to develop your own practice or your heart centred business.

Yogini and contemporary artist Tandy Pengelly

I have the pleasure of living in a beautiful rural part of South West France, where I am surrounded by some stunning scenery, coastlines and wild animals. One of my greatest pleasures is to hike through the landscape, stopping, pausing and connecting with the beauty of Mother Nature.

As a Buddhist, Yoga Teacher, and a Shamanic practitioner, I feel the deep connection between myself and Nature, therefore it would only be natural for me, as an artist to want to bring this beauty to life on canvas, so others can also enjoy and share it with me.

But I believe that we are all innately creative and that creativity is connected to our spirituality. To re-ignite that creativity we must dive deep, and strive to live in harmony with the rhythm of nature to truly achieve the unity of mind body and spirit, because the unity is universal and the rhythm of our creativity is dependent on the beauty that is reflected back to us from Nature.

Restfulness

A Yogic Lifestyle

Yoga practices such as meditation enable us to watch our minds think, to realize that we must be more than the mind, if we can sit back and watch it generate thoughts. This is the power of the practices…they show rather than tell us.

Tools such as a clean compassionate healthy diet, sound therapy, creativity, social interaction, time spent outdoors  and healing therapies such as massage, are all valuable parts of a committing to a healthier Yogic Lifestyle….one that gives you the opportunity to reduce stress, reduce inflammation and pain and develop a more fulfilling positive connected life.
