Charles Bukowski’s Words of Wisdomry

nobody can save you but
yourself.
you will be put again and again
into nearly impossible
situations.
they will attempt again and again
through subterfuge, guise and
force
to make you submit, quit and /or die quietly
inside.

nobody can save you but
yourself
and it will be easy enough to fail
so very easily
but don’t, don’t, don’t.
just watch them.
listen to them.
do you want to be like that?
a faceless, mindless, heartless
being?
do you want to experience
death before death?

nobody can save you but
yourself
and you’re worth saving.
it’s a war not easily won
but if anything is worth winning then
this is it.

think about it.
think about saving your self.
your spiritual self.
your gut self.
your singing magical self and
your beautiful self.
save it.
don’t join the dead-in-spirit.

maintain your self
with humor and grace
and finally
if necessary
wager your self as you struggle,
damn the odds, damn
the price.

only you can save your
self.

do it! do it!

then you’ll know exactly what
I am talking about. – Charles Bukowski

Cost:
* 10 x classes = 100 euros

* 1 x class = 12 euros

*Classes will be ongoing

More on Yoga 4 Men:

” I unrolled my BLACK mat near someone else’s pink one, beside someone else’s painted toenails and a pile of voguish flip-flops. Now, my fellow MATES are probably engaged in some testosterone-fueled sprint, while I’m grunting loudly to stay balanced on my forearms. I’m inverted and self-conscious: In a class filled with women, I alone am emitting primal noises ”

This is the reason why we’ve created a class HIM only. Besides all physical benefits of realigning imbalance, posture and flexibility. This is a safe place for the male to explore all the other benefits of increased energy, well being, better focus & a clearer mind by adding meditation to your routine.

Sat Nam

The Bubble Festival Malta. Bend for a Cause

A contemporary music & arts festival with purpose. Positive awareness, charity & fun. All set in the Buskett Forest in Malta on the second weekend of June.

The Bubble is the safe haven that we live in, the comfortable world that
we surround ourselves with, the people we know and the environment
we are used to. We are recreating this… but with fresh new elements, new
ideas, new awakenings to what’s going on OUTSIDE the Bubble!

An awakening to co-creation, charity, contemporary arts, eco awareness,
theatre and poetry, workshops, sustainability, conscious eating, fun,
music, dancing and some surprises thrown in for the mix! All done for
charity and set among some of Malta’s finest natural environments, the
Bubble offers people a safe space to chill, dance and explore new concepts that are ready and waiting for them when they leave the event!

*Bend it Up, Feel Within
Let us Begin
Feel Your Toes
Touch Your Nose
Be in Your Pose

Yoga with MichelleBartoloYoga on Sunday June 9th @4pm.
All levels WELCOME
Workin it to find your inner FREEDOM
