about aligned living tasmania
Aligned living is living with congruence and allegiance to the life force as it moves through you as you. It is remembering that you are whole, wise, and worthy, simply by being, that your contribution is needed and valuable. Aligned living is recognising that the same light that shines in your eyes shines in the world and that what you are seeking is right here, this moment.
The way I have offered support and guidance for others through yoga is by an invitation to join me on a journey. For over 20 years the majority of participants in my in person classes have enrolled for a 10 session term. This has given us the opportunity to experience the richness of exploring an overarching theme. Feedback over the years has affirmed that this is valuable and helpful so I am inviting you to our ongoing journey in this mode of online recordings.
I offer a range of 5 session courses. Each has an overarching focus or theme such as the Foundations Course for those new to yoga or wanting to ground themselves in steady principles for practice, the Fascial Wellness course integrating contemporary anatomical knowledge into practice, and more …
Relaxation, mindfulness, breath practices, and contemplation are nourishing and supportive, especially in times of change and challenge. Supportive Elements is a library of 5 – 20 minute guided sessions to re-source yourself.

Learning never ends and people, nature, and our connections are infinitely inspiring. People have often asked me to share the poem I read in class, or the research paper that inspired a session. Here is where this lands. This material is via others and I am so grateful. You will find links to youtube, downloadable PDF’s, informational videos I have made presenting what I understand to be current (this of course is always changing). I hope it will enrich your understanding, inspire you, and add context for your journey.
