Bare your soul: My nude yoga adventure

Bare your soul: My nude yoga adventure

"I'm not sure why, but I feel like I need to go do this," I say. "Ok, baby, it's different that's for sure," Brett replies. "I never imagined myself doing nude yoga..." My throat tightens as the words leave my mouth. "Just book the ticket already!" Brett says, kissing...

What are your values? Connecting to your true purpose

What are your values? Connecting to your true purpose

It's easy to be swept up in what is going on around us, to want to help others, to feel like we need to be involved in everything, but when we do this we often are left feeling overwhelmed, drained and exhausted. It's ok to say No to things. But, working out what you...

Lessons from the Universe… light & dark

Lessons from the Universe… light & dark

The Universe has a plan for us all. Sometimes we struggle to see it, especially when difficult, traumatic, or dark experiences arise. You know the saying... there can be no light without the dark (or something like that). Well, it's true! Light cannot exist without...

Reset Your Soul

Reset Your Soul

Ah Spring, a time of growth, change and new opportunities. For us in the southern hemisphere, we are also in the sprint to the end of the year. BBQs, Christmas parties and days catching up with friends fill our schedules as the weather warms up! Which is great! Except...

Yoga for Balance

Yoga for Balance

  Balance. It's something I struggle to maintain in my life. And I know that many other people do as well. The pressures and demands of family and work, household chores, paying bills, and social obligations pile up and we allow less and less time for ourselves. We...

You Deserve More: Why self-sabotage has to go

You Deserve More: Why self-sabotage has to go

Why do we think we deserve so little? What is it that triggers us to think we are not worthy of love and abundance in our lives?  We see others living lives that we are envious of and wonder why can't that be me? Self-sabotage, we are all guilty of it. From the...

Speak Up: What is going on in the world

Speak Up: What is going on in the world

There is a lot going on in the world right now. And in recent months I've stuck my head in the sand to avoid the unfolding Trump-related drama at all costs. I've avoided the gay marriage (or you know, marriage) plebiscite details here in Australia. I've stopped tuning...

Bite Size Yoga

Bite Size Yoga

We've all been guilty of using the line "I'm too busy" when it comes to making time for ourselves. There is always someone else who needs our attention. Or another task on the to-do list to complete. Self-care generally falls to the bottom of the list of priorities....

Perspective: Finding your way through the noise

Perspective: Finding your way through the noise

We are told so many stories growing up about how to live our lives. These stories come from our families, advertisements, magazines, the books we read, and our local communities. These stories tell us how we should behave, how we should dress, how we should think and...

New moon intentions: The importance of being clear

New moon intentions: The importance of being clear

On this day seven years ago I sat on the edge of Tan Nguyet Lake (Lake of the New Moon) in the grounds of the tomb of Minh Mang in Hue, Vietnam. I sat meditating, looking for answers to a question I'm not sure I knew. I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life....

Tribe Travel: Our road trip north

Tribe Travel: Our road trip north

I've lost count of how many times I've done the Mackay-Brisbane or Cairns-Mackay car trip. As a kid, it felt like every second set of school holidays we were packed into the station wagon in the middle of the night for the 10-12 hour trip. And then many school...

Yoga for spine health and flexibility

Yoga for spine health and flexibility

Winter has arrived! Well, Queensland's version of winter anyway. All of sudden my body has seized up in protest. My morning yoga practice resembles a rusty pair of scissors, nothing moves, at least not without a whole heap of grating and scraping in my joints. The...

World Environment Day

Happy 3rd Birthday to Us!

Happy 3rd Birthday to Us!

It was a bright, crisp, clear day, much like this one, winter had arrived and I'd had enough of studying. I was three and a half years in, to what would become an eight-year journey at university. My creative outlet was no longer fun, essay and academic writing had...

Yoga for tight hips

Yoga for tight hips

If, like me, you spend a lot of time sitting at a desk - typing, writing, studying - then chances are you suffer from stiffness in your lower back or tight hamstrings. This stiffness and tension can be traced back to a central problem... tight hips. A body that...

Tribe Travel: Lessons learnt in Colombo

Tribe Travel: Lessons learnt in Colombo

We often travel to escape. To escape from work, break ups, our past. But in the process of trying to lose ourself while traveling, more often than not, we stumble head-first into everything we were trying to avoid. Last week I set off to Colombo, the buzzing capital...

Less is More: 30 in 30 Declutter

Less is More: 30 in 30 Declutter

For a while now, our tribe has been on a bit of a mission to declutter our house, and our lives. In the past 34 years, I've moved house approximately 23 times (I've lost track now). I've become some what of an expert in letting go of material possessions... 1) because...

Raising Conscious Kids

Raising Conscious Kids

A few weeks ago, on the drive home from school, Ilah launched into an emotional oration about war and why it was lame. Her passionate ten-minute speech spurred from seeing a group of Indigenous men walking along the side of the road. Her first question: why are they...

Yoga Your Life

Yoga Your Life

When I had a CFS crash 18 months ago, my physical yoga practice was no longer practical, in fact, it was some times quite dangerous. Standing up caused waves of dizziness followed by days of aches and pains in the muscles of my legs. Even lying could be a painful...

Dreams do come true

Dreams do come true

Nothing Bad is Happening

Nothing Bad is Happening

We love a bit of positive thinking in our household. When we sit around eating dinner together, we each take a moment to share what the best part of our day was. We practice gratitude, we look for positives in shitty situations and know that from chaos comes great...

Yoga: I’m not flexible enough…

Yoga: I’m not flexible enough…

I'm not flexible enough... If you have ever practiced yoga, then you have most likely heard someone utter these words. Maybe you have suggested to a friend that it is a great way to de-stress and they should join you at a class or you know someone who has set a health...

Tribe Talk: Carmen from Eco Bohemia

Tribe Talk: Carmen from Eco Bohemia

Ilah’s Tips to Save the Turtles

Ilah’s Tips to Save the Turtles

Early this year we sat down and wrote out our goals and dreams for 2017. One of Ilah's goals this year is to save the turtles by picking up rubbish every time we go to the beach, as well as changing her habits at home so she doesn't make as much rubbish. Ilah wanted...

Moving forward

Moving forward

The general consensus seems to be that 2016 was a shitty year. Trump became the next US president, differing ethnicities and religious fanatics continue to destroy each other, and almost everyone I've spoken to (or follow online) is glad to see the back end of 2016....

Resolutions vs Goal setting

Resolutions vs Goal setting

I use to be all about setting New Years resolutions. Resolutions provide the possibility of turning over a new leaf and achieving major change in ones life, which is a wonderful idea in theory. The problem that I personally found with New Year's resolutions was that...

5 Tips for a budget boho beach wedding

5 Tips for a budget boho beach wedding
