Headstands and Shoulderstands – Looking at the world from a different perspective!

Inversions or inverted poses are an immensely important group of asanas. Instead of gravity pulling everything towards the feet , the orientation shifts towards the head. On the emotional and spiritual levels, inverted poses turn everything upside down, throwing a new light on old patterns of behavior and life.

Indian Summer Yoga Clothing

Indian Summer Yoga has some exciting news…

In 2010 I embarked on a huge adventure and set off traveling around  India to explore, work and  live. Upon meeting Dhakaram Sapkota of Yogapeace, Jaipur, I studied Yoga and came home a fully qualified Yoga teacher. Little did I know just how much my life would change and have now been teaching as a Full time Yoga teacher for 3 years, loving every moment and  learning from every single student I’ve had the pleasure of teaching. Prior to this I studied and trained to be a textile designer, my life was heavily involved in the design and textile world.

Four years later I’m returning to my love of textile design and currently designing a range of Yoga clothing, to work alongside my passion for teaching yoga. The Indian Summer Yoga Clothing will be a simple collection of t-shirts, hoodies and wraparound/reversible skirts, using natural, organic fabrics (where possible), fairly traded and affordable.

The official launch date is 6th December 2014 and I’ll be keeping a daily blog of the highs and lows of the journey until then. Creating regular updates of my research findings and photographs of the products as they emerge.  Enjoy the  journey – Follow your dreams.

A smile costs nothing!

A smile costs nothing!

“We are not going to change the whole world, but we can change ourselves and feel free as birds. We can be serene even in the midst of calamities and, by our serenity, make others more tranquil. Serenity is contagious. If we smile at someone, he or she will smile back. And a smile costs nothing. We should plague everyone with joy. If we are to die in a minute, why not die happily, laughing? (136-137)”

Swami Satchidananda, The Yoga Sutras
