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

I’m very honoured to announce that AMIR JAAN will be joining me on the May Retreat in Gozo and in August, on the  Yoga & Hiking Retreat in Spain. Amir is a well renowned Kundalini Yoga teacher from London. I attended a few of his classes and they were beyond the description that words can give. His expertise and lyrical essence are complete artistry from the heart. To find out more about Amir you can click here:  http://www.barcelonayogaconference.cat/index.php/en/amir-jaan

In June we hit the French Alps where I am welcoming JENI CARUANA who is a well renowned artist living in Malta. She is a goddess with a paintbrush that dances all on it’s own, I’ve never felt so drawn in by paintings before. Jeni will be teaching basic drawing techniques that can be used as mediations, which she cleverly titled, Drawing Closer to Nature. For more info on jeni click here: www.jenicaruana.com
My next guest teacher is INA LOVDAL who is from Norway and is as Zen as Zen can be. She has so much to offer and will be flowing us through some QiGong on my October Retreat in Gozo.

6 Lessons Santa Teaches Better Than Any ‘Guru’

**Article extracted from Elephant Journal 6 Lessons Santa Teaches us better than any \’Guru\’

 

 

 

If you haven’t any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble. ~ Bob Hope

Whether Santa is real or not really doesn’t matter, as he has been endowed with some remarkable qualities that we can all learn from. In fact, in many ways, he is better able to show us true spirituality than even the average guru.

1.  He asks us to be good. Which is significant considering many of us so often act selfishly and greedily. By being good he means being kind, being generous, being considerate and thoughtful.

He gives to everyone, whoever and wherever they are, all at pretty much the same time. And he does it without asking for anything in return (except for the odd glass of milk and cookies). This indicates he has a truly generous heart, one that takes great joy in giving without needing to receive. Which is a very important lesson, as giving with no expectation of getting is the quickest route to happiness. Through giving to others, a la Santa, we get away from selfishness and neediness.

2. Yet he does not give blindly. Rather he considers what is the most appropriate gift for each. This shows great discernment. Too often we give without thinking (like giving candy to a starving child when what they need is food), so here Santa shows us how giving needs wisdom in order to be of most benefit.

3. He listens to our requests and reads our letters. Meaning that he takes the time to hear and pay attention, which we could all do a lot more of. How often do we really listen to someone without judging them, or without imposing our own thoughts on them or telling them what we think is right for them?

4. He has great psychic powers: flies in the sky with reindeer, descends chimneys without getting covered in soot, goes by many names and forms, and is extraordinarily elusive. Has anyone actually ever seen him? The lesson here is that we can all do more than we think we can, and we don’t need to be applauded. We can practice random acts of kindness quietly, simply, without bringing attention to ourselves.

5. He’s filled with joy and lifts our spirits at the darkest time. And we can do the same for each other. No need to spread doom and gloom, no need to focus on what is wrong with ourselves or the world. By focusing on what is good we not only bring a lightness of spirit to others, but we also get to feel a lot better too.

6. He knows where we live. In other words, he is inside every one of us. Santa is our true, authentic self that is there when we can let go of our ego-centered needs.

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. ~ Winston Churchill
