Conscious Home Eco-Renovation

What a privilege it is to chat with an eco-renovator within their own home. There’s the confirmation that surfaces and finishes are not leaching chemical waste for years to come. The cooling and heating are taken care of through good insulation and where possible, passive design. Sipping harvested, purified rain water, a sound scape of birds song drifts through the windows and into discussions. Even the water you wash your hands with recycles back into the toilet bowl afterwards and the aesthetics are appealing too. It seems that once you start a home eco-renovation you naturally want to inspire others, and the flow-on effect for sustainable living is life changing.

Imagining the WellBeing Yoga Immersion weekends...

Imagine…

You feel rushed, a little apprehensive, then enter a space that has been so beautifully, meditatively prepared, filled with indelible intentions for your own exploration, that you relax. As you enter, you start to let go and listen to soothing sounds of yoga music as it flows through your ears and into your heart, softening you while you look for a space to call home for the weekend amongst others that you haven’t yet met. I smile at you, chanting softly, then bring you an oil to soothe your marma points and clear your energy. You roll out your mat. As you take a breath in, you breathe a sacred scent from the oil and another from the love altar; a divine scent from ancient times, welcoming and nurturing your senses.

On Criticism

Recently I discovered that over many years I unconsciously embraced a criticism of my handwriting that didn’t come from me. In the process of conscious living, you uncover or wake up to things that you do unconsciously that no longer serve you, and it’s a wonderful thing, because it provides the opportunity to let go and live differently.

The Yoga of Mess

Namaste. This is me, in equanimity amidst mess. With two small children my home is often dishevelled, a special thanks to my three year old boy. He is adorable by the way, and incredibly messy.

It’s hard to contain mess in such a small home, and I don’t want to contain the creative spirit, to dampen the imaginative fire by being rigid or fixed, so I allow for mess and find myself constantly cleaning up, like most mums I guess. Here’s the yoga of it. It’s service; karma yoga.

The Yoga of Surrender

A lot of people consider Yoga as a form of exercise with a bit of unusual breathing and a rest thrown in at the end. Is this you, or someone you know? Yoga Teachers don’t mind, because the health benefits are far reaching irrespective of how spiritual you want to take your practice. Yet Yoga is a spiritual path, and Patanjali clearly states that this sattvic lifestyle needs a surrender; Ishvara Pranidhana - surrendering to the divinity within. It is a beautiful way to live, surrendering, yet how many of us do?

Truth-seeking company and natural connection

Sanga is a Sanskrit word that means ‘in the company of likeminded others’. Sat means the ‘highest truth’, and Satsanga is the ‘company of likeminded others seeking the highest truth’. If you are struggling to maintain a daily yoga practice, seeking a satsang can inspire you towards a regular practice for living your bliss.

Vastu for Love

Do you see Love as a spiritual quest in life? Look around your home, feel into the space. Does it feel emotionally warm to be at your place? Is it nurturing, safe, non-judgemental, and is love freely expressed and received? Can you drop into the space and truly relax?

Who is Kylie Terraluna for the WellBeing Yoga Immersions?

Here’s a little about me, to help you understand where I come from and what kind of yoga teacher I am for the WellBeing Yoga Immersions.

The word, ‘wellbeing’ is another name for happiness, and every word I have ever written for WellBeing Magazine has been and continues to be an act of pure love. It’s a written form of yoga teaching for me, whether I’m writing about yoga, or spiritual circles or sustainability, it’s all yoga. These Immersions are the live component of years of printed articles, and more than that, they too are an act of love.
