Overcoming Resistance

Gentle Spirit Yoga blog overcoming resistance

Our resistance to ‘what is’ is what keeps us trapped in the never-ending cycle of our pain body and can create suffering. Recognising and overcoming resistance is key. Resistance is the reason that we keep re-living and going over our old restrictive behaviour and patterns. Resistance is when we don’t want something to be as it is. We want the situation or outcome to be different to the one we are experiencing. So we physically and or mentally create resistance within our body and mind. Continue Reading →

Create The Life You Want

Gentle Spirit Yoga

How do you create the life you want when it seems the whole world is rallying for your attention?

Have you noticed how so many emails, text and advertising (just to name a few) are marked urgent and in need our immediate attention? Advertising plays on our fear of missing out so we feel compelled to engage. Fear of missing out, also extends to other areas of our life. Continue Reading →

Gentle Yoga Classes Bendigo

Welcome beautiful soul,

Sometimes the most productive thing we can do is relax and surrender and allow life to unfold. It is admirable to be there for others, but not at the expense of ignoring our own needs and wants. As the saying goes, ‘you can’t give from an empty cup’. Taking time out for ourselves often brings everything into perspective. Yoga focuses the mind and invites us to wake up from within. Every conscious action and breath is yoga. It’s not what we go through in life but how we respond that makes the difference in awakening peace within our heart. Yoga is both the means and the path. We learn through practice on the mat how to navigate our best life off the mat. It begins with kindness, love, acceptance as well as forgiveness for everything we thought we should or shouldn’t do or be. And the place to begin is right here now.

Let go and open your heart. Happy, content people build their inner world. Prioritise happiness. Be kind to yourself and then allow that kindness to flood the world. Look within, for you are the peace that you have been seeking.

And I am honoured to be a part of your journey.

Love & blessings, Gwynn

Discovering Yoga

 Discovering Yoga ~ A  personal journey of self discovery to something more

Did you ever think that there had to be something more? That you are here for a purpose? Have you ever felt an empty void inside that doesn’t ever seem to fill no matter how much you try? Well that is how I have felt as long as I can remember. Always searching but never finding. Always seeking on a worldly scale for that unattainable approval and acceptance.  Continue Reading →

Our breath is a really important part of our Yoga practice. Our breath is our connection to life. We breathe or we die, it is as simple as that. Our breath is what feeds, nourishes and sustains us.  Continue Reading →

Celebrating Gratitude

Gentle Spirit Yoga ~ celebrating gratitude

I have been thinking about celebrating gratitude can be so important in our day to day. I know from my own experiences that being in a state of gratitude is not always easy. Especially when things don’t always go as I hoped or planned.  Continue Reading →
