Out of body Experiences Hong Kong

Out of Body Experiences Hong Kong

The South China Morning Post (SCMP) recently interviewed me about out of body experiences (OBEs). A reporter from SCMP was at my talk at the Garden Gathering and she reached out to me to see I would like to chat more about these life-changing experiences.

My first thought was ‘of course,’ but then a little part of me thought, ‘hang on, then everyone is going to know about them!’ You see, for years, I have kept these experiences to myself as I know full well how crazy and they sound.

If I had not experienced them for myself, then I too would be very skeptical. And I think that is a good thing!

You should be skeptical.

It’s a bit like someone describing what it’s like to fall in love – they can talk about that sense of deep connection, they can tell you about butterflies they feel and that desire to do anything for that other person. But until you experience it for yourself, you cannot truly KNOW what this feels like. You need to experience falling in love for yourself to truly know what it is like (and isn’t it just the best feeling in the world?!). But until you do, don’t take someone else’s word about how it feels like. Experience it for yourself. Only then can you truly KNOW.

The same goes for out of body experiences. To truly know and understand what they are, you have to experience them for yourself.

So don’t believe me. But be open to the possibility that they are real.

And then maybe, just maybe, you might find yourself one day having one of the most extra-ordinary, life-changing experiences for yourself. Because when you KNOW that you are so much more than your physical body, everything changes.

OBEs are a gateway to knowing how truly unlimited you are. They enable you to see for yourself the incredible power of your thoughts and to connect to your real self…You tap into that light, that spark that resides deep within you. That is the real you – and OBEs take you there.

If you’re interested in learning more, then drop me a line. If there is enough interest, I will hold another talk in Hong Kong.

VIDEO: Yoga for Relaxation

Hello yogis! Are you ready for a yoga for relaxation class?

This 15-minute flow is designed to help you release tension and open up your body. This sequence is for all levels, beginners included and will help you release tension in your hips, hamstrings and shoulders. You’ll feel relaxed and refreshed at the end of class!

I shot this video at beautiful 53 Hoi Ha in Sai Kung, Hong Kong. I fell in love with this place when I went there last week. It’s STUNNING. I shot three videos on the rooftop, but disaster struck when my microphone decided to stop working! I only discovered this when I started editing the videos and it wasn’t a good moment! I was so disappointed, but I did manage to rescue this video – the audio isn’t great, but the flow (and the setting) is pretty sweet….

I am teaching a Full Moon Yoga Retreat in 53 Hoi Ha on 4th November and will have a spanking new microphone so will try to shoot a couple more videos. I love the idea that no matter where you are in the world, we can practice together – and this setting is amazing!

This sequence is perfect to do before a yoga nidra session – so practice first and then grab your free yoga nidra meditation for total relaxation!

The Garden Gathering in Cheung Chau, Hong Kong

Take a peek at the opening ceremony of the Garden Gathering in Cheung Chau, Hong Kong in October 2017. There was magic in the air as women from across the world came together to celebrate and share their gifts. There was such an incredible energy of love and togetherness, which I hope I captured in this video.

Massive thank you to all the beautiful souls who made this weekend so special. I’m incredibly grateful to May Ngoh and Resham Daswani for organising this weekend of heart-felt connection and transformation.

I gave my first ever talk in HK about Out of Body Exploration and I loved it – it felt like there so much in me that I needed to share. It poured out of me and the feedback and messages I’ve received have been so positive. This was the perfect place to share this – and I promise this is just the beginning…

Please share this video and spread the love and magic even more ♥

VIDEO: Morning Yoga for Beginners

I have a new video for you today – a morning yoga for beginners flow that I shot whilst running the Yoga Academy at Sea on a cruise to Japan.

I had just finished watching this amazing sunrise from my balcony…

I then went up to the VIP deck and did my morning go-to yoga sequence.

Then I thought how cool would it be to to share this practice with you! And so I quickly grabbed my camera and shot this video before teaching my first class of the day. This is my typical morning practice to help me wake up and get set for the day ahead. Enjoy.

Just a few minutes of yoga can make all the difference in your day.

It opens up your body, works out all the kinks and makes you feel good. My day always runs more smoothly when it starts with a few minutes of yoga and meditation. ALWAYS. Try it for yourself and let me know how you get on!

It’s an incredible time for me at the moment – everything I have ever dreamed of is materialising right before my eyes – both in my professional and personal life. It seems like I have a manifestation button on speed dial! I’ve analysed what I’m doing differently (because obviously I want this to carry on!) and there a few things…

One is which is that I have decided to never settle and really go for the things I want. The hardest thing for me has always been to decide what I want – but I’ve done that. Have you?

Do you really know what you want in life? Try to make this crystal clear for yourself.

Once you’ve done this, ASK for what you want. Don’t hold back. The only way you’re ever going to get it is by being really clear and asking for it.

Don’t settle for anything less than extraordinary  because you deserve everything you want in life. This is something I touched upon this in my latest blog post – you can read it here.

But first do this short sequence and set yourself up for an amazing day!

Choosing a life less ordinary

How to choose a life less ordinary

How to choose a life less ordinary…. A few days ago, I landed in the picturesque island of Miyakojima. I was on a one week cruise from Hong Kong to Okinawa. It was pretty intense as I was running the ‘Yoga Academy at Sea’ on Dream Cruises, teaching yoga classes and giving presentations to a mainly Chinese audience.

I wasn’t used to students not understanding me and it was quite a steep learning curve working with a translator. I had to keep it simple, slow down and make every word count … oh and use lots of hand gestures when teaching!

So I was pretty chuffed to arrive in Japan knowing I would have a day to myself.

When I got off the ferry, I was faced with a choice: 

1. Turn right and walk 10 minutes to a decent beach with the convenience of a shop across the street; or

2. Turn left and walk about an hour to a remote, but beautiful beach with no amenities nearby

Now I was pretty tired that day so I turned right and walked towards the nearby beach. It was ok, but nothing special.

And that’s when it hit me… Why would I accept anything less than extraordinary? 

I wanted a life less ordinary. I had a day to explore and discover a part of the world I had never visited. Taking the easy route was well, easy, but a bit safe and boring. I’ve never settled for easy and boring and safe, so why would I start now?

I turned myself around and with new gusto, set off for Sunayama Beach.

Yes, it felt far, especially as I was wearing flip flops! But it was a new adventure.

It meant I met an old Japanese lady on the way who insisted on giving me a bottle of frozen water (I must have looked really hot – and not in a good way!).

It meant I discovered a cute little cafe with the most delicious mango shaved shaved ice (it tasted so much better than it sounds!).

It also meant that I arrived in this beautiful spot with emerald blue water and a secret little cove that ended up being the perfect spot for a few yoga photos (yes, I was lugging around my tripod and camera just in case!).

And most importantly it meant I had an amazing afternoon and memories that will last me a lifetime. It wasn’t the easiest choice, but it was definitely the most exciting and memorable one… and I’m so glad I made it.

 

 

So the next time you’re faced with making a decision – ask yourself this….

Am I settling and taking the easy route? Often we do this as it feels safe – and we wired to choose the safe route.

But know that you don’t have to accept anything less than extraordinary – your life was meant to be fun and exciting and full of new experiences. So embrace that – and enjoy it to the fullest.

In every moment you are the creator, director and actor of your own life. You have the power to decide exactly what you want to experience – and don’t settle for anything less.

You deserve a life less ordinary.

 

 

What is Yoga Nidra?

What is Yoga Nidra? I’ve been teaching Yoga Nidra classes and workshops for a couple of years now and have noticed the same questions cropping up time and time again.

So today, I’m going to answer the five most common questions I get about this incredible practice. This is just a little snippet – watch the video for all the juicy details!

What is Yoga Nidra? 

Also known as yogic sleep, yoga nidra is one of the deepest forms of relaxation. It’s a combination of allowing your body to relax while you keep your mind awake. By doing this, you reach a profound state of relaxation – on all levels of your being.

I like to think of it as a kind of internal yoga. It’s practiced lying on your back in savasana with your eyes closed –  and the hardest part is actually staying awake! It enables you to let go of all ingrained tension and stress.

But relaxation is just the beginning –  yoga nidra can truly transform your life.

How can Yoga Nidra help you apart from relaxation? 

During the practice, you access your subconscious mind. Your conscious mind – that part of you that tells you you can or cannot do something – that gets out of the way. By doing this you’re accessing your inner world. It’s like opening a door to your inner world.

This is the optimal setting to work on manifestation and to release the old, limited you.

Try it now!

What happens on a physical level during a Yoga Nidra session?

Well your breathing slows down. Your heart rate slows down. And your brain waves slow down as well.

So your nervous system is just unwinding itself and you’re allowing your body to just release all that pent up tension and stress.

What are the proven benefits of Yoga Nidra?

There are so many! But these are the main five:

– Yoga Nidra is deeply restorative. One hour of practice is said to be the equivalent of four hours of sleep.

– It helps you switch off your mind – that is why it’s been successfully used to treat insomnia.

–  Studies show that it is very effective at increasing learning capacity and memory.

–  Yoga Nidra increases creativity – new insights and ideas just drop in after a session.

– But the most powerful benefit of Yoga Nidra is the way it alters your unconscious programming.

How is Yoga Nidra is how is it different from meditation?

For starters, during Yoga Nidra you’re lying down in savasana and you’re trying to reach a state in between being awake and being asleep.

Whereas in meditation, typically you practice sitting – and you want your spine to be as erect as possible and you want to remain completely awake and alert the whole time.

That’s the starting point. But the main difference is that in a Yoga Nidra session you go through distinct stages and your focus is constantly shifting. This is a very different from meditation where you generally focus on one thing, such as your breath or mantra.

Yoga Nidra is a transformational practice that truly changed my life – and I know it can do the same for you. 

I started practicing more than a decade ago in Thailand. At the time, I was very nervous speaking in front of other people. I wanted something to help me overcome this debilitating fear – my heart would pound so hard in my chest every time to I had to speak up. I couldn’t focus on anything other than what I was about to say and when I did speak, my voice came out feeble and shaky! It was really holding me back on a professional and personal level.

So I turned to yoga nidra and it truly transformed my life. I consistently used the sankalpa ‘I speak with confidence and clarity’ in my practice. My fear subsided and slowly but surely I felt comfortable and confident speaking up. So much so, that I went on to fulfil my dream of working as a television journalist.

But don’t take my word for it – try it for yourself!
