A Love Story for Bedtime

I wrote this bedtime love story for my little girl earlier in the year when settling her to sleep. She is fond of fairytales. I wanted to ignite her spirit with an inner search, offer her a story that celebrates the feminine, is imbued with yogic principles while feeding the soul with a romance of life’s potential. If you set an intention like that, sometimes story just comes. Does this one resonate with you? May it delight. x

A Yoga Love Poem

I wrote this yoga love poem some time ago and thought I would share it now as I sit in a delicious space of creating and planning for the WellBeing Yoga Immersions for Love. It equally serves for lovers and those waiting for the wings of love. It can also be felt as a calling or uniting wholeness within yourself...

Cultivating Compassion

In the authoritative ancient text, The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, karuna or compassion is one of the four ways of relating to others. Compassion towards those who are suffering. Compassion can sometimes be difficult, especially if someone’s suffering is aimed at you.

Cultivating Joy

October and November 2015 have been my biggest publishing months to date. I have around 25,000 words published across three WellBeing publications this month and am busy writing more.

I love writing so much, and sharing ancient wisdom teachings through the craft.

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.

Om Shanti, Peace at Home

Shanti, Shanti? I’m calling my cat of ten years. I’ve named her Peace for a reason. Shaaaantiiii. I love calling Peace into Nature as the darkness falls upon the night sky. Peace, I call out in Sanskrit, and wait for a softly furred, four legged friend to enter through the front door for her dinner.

I’m also calling to my heart, to remind myself to embody peace within the chaos of a young family in an intimate space...

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.

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.

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.

Yoga for Happiness

Do you think about your own happiness, what makes you happy and what it is that truly leads to lasting happiness in your life? Would you like to be happier?

Have you considered how you would live, love and be, if happiness was your stable centre? Or is your happiness somehow obscured by conditioned expectations and responsibilities, pushed to the side or future dated for a later destination you may never find? Do you really want to live like that, ever dependent on good things happening for you to feel happy?

Yoga of Bliss

The idea of transformation can be misunderstood. To transform into something other than yourself is not the idea of yoga. A caterpillar transforms into a butterfly but is still the same being as it was. Like the caterpillar, a flower blossoms, but doesn’t do so in an effort to improve on itself, it is simply living in harmony with it’s nature. Yogic transformation is also not one of self improvement, it is one of self awareness.
