Yoga Hippy Lifestyle

I have acquaintances that love the idea of being self sufficient and I have others that love the idea of the city and all the supposed simplicity of it all, can we really say that one or the other is simplistic or, is it just a state of mind?

I moved to this remote place just on ten years ago and realised that I had moved myself into isolation but, when push came to shove was I really more isolated than I was in town? Answer no I was actually far more isolated in the thriving metropolis of Newcastle where my family lived and I never saw.

Living where I do I have No electricity bills, no water bills, this is due to being on solar and generator power and having river and rain water for supply, We have the internet through the NBN sky muster system which everyone complains is slow but works wonders here and we a perfectly good phone line but no mobile service.

This is where everyone is going oh totally wish that was me, but do you really think that the challenges you face with these will make you happy? For me they have the power plays up and this is due to financial capital or lack there of to replace the old failed batteries, the generator needs an upgrade and for the same reasons can wait. All this aside am I happy? You bet and I wouldn’t change it for the world.

So right now I have spent the last few days preparing our beds for spring, nice and early so that we have a great diet to plant all the vegetables that our family eats, these are wife and varied and are always in overly abundant in which we share with neighbors, friends and of course the general public. Our business motto has always been pretty simple when it comes to the over supply of our fruits and vegetables 🥒 it’s a pay what you feel they are worth and people are as varied with this as the produce itself.

I love this life but it’s not for everyone, most people find it hard to disconnect from the world and live as natural as we do but, for us it isn’t even a thought as Stuart works bees 🐝 with Mother Nature as his boss, I work with yoga which is a universal down to earth, grounded way of life and we Both value greatly the time we spend together as a family unit as you really don’t know when it could be taken away.

Our little stall at the side of the road is where we stick our products and it’s on the old fashioned honesty system as karma catches those that are dishonest and we leave it to karma for the peacefulness of mind. We call our little stand the Yoga Hippy stand as it incorporates both my husband and I as well as the children we are all hippies at heart and we love a yogic lifestyle. Stuart’s Honey is sold at this little stall and we know that we get regulars coming as when where out of good old Hibbo’s Honey 🍯 they come up and ask for it.

So by the time that this article gets released I probably would have finished the gardens and started looking for plants to put in so it will probably be old news. I don’t turn the internet on daily let alone weekly and this is why you find that my posts are irregular.

Well hopefully you have a wonderful growing season and you find so peace in growing something for yourself.

Love the Yoga Hippy and Hibbo’s Honey crew from Newton Boyd NSW Australia ❤️❤️❤️❤️🙏

Yoga every damn day 

If you have never tried Yoga I have to let you in on a massive secret, it’s the biggest natural high you will experience without throwing yourself off a bridge with a rope around your ankles.

If you have tried yoga and hated it then here is the secret to it sucking for you, you had the wrong teacher/ experience.

Yoga is many things to many people and I can honestly tell you that once you get the right teacher, perfect place to practice and a mind that’s ready to give peace ago you will benefit greatly from the experience and will have the yoga stoned glow that is the best thing ever.

Too many people assume that you have to bend like a pretzel or be super skinny to do yoga, you really really don’t you know. I am definitely no bending like a pretzel nor do I feel the need to prove how flexible I am, I am also not twiggy as any mother of 1 child or 10 will attest to.

I do however love my yoga and have had fabulous teachers along the way with the most recent being Carrie-Anne fields from My Health Yoga. She inspired me and also helped to reinvigorate my practice and also helped me through my pregnancy with motivation from another late term mother.

My advice to all is to try yoga and look for different styles, teachers and places before saying that it’s not for you.
Namaste 🙏

On the Yoga / Fitness front I have since speaking last completed the Athletics Australia Level 1 Community Coaching course and am now ready to add this to the fun part of teaching kids ( mine included) I now teach Yoga twice a week in #GlenInnesNSW and also teach Kettle bells after on those 2 days which I totally LOVE.

I would love to announce to you all some fabulously amazing things that have happened but nothing much yet. At anytime your passing and want to see what I am up to come and visit the face book page and #Followme for loads of information that I don’t always get here to write about.

 

Love to all.

Namaste

Blog of a Yoga Hippy

This is the first blog of my entire life, actually its the first time I have written, typed of expressed publicly my thoughts but, hear I am on this computer typing away knowing full well that I have atrocious punctuation and grammar.

Well so you know I am currently no age and teach yoga and specifically Yin Yoga, I am passionate about peace, harmony, and the feminine soul and am 100% positive that I am a very biased mother of 5 children, 1- 18yr old , then 5,4,3,and 9 mths and am I really sure that I will never have another child….no way as they are so cute and sweet that I can excuse the temper tantrums especially when they say “hug mummy” when they know that they are in trouble.

I have been told I can sound like am giving a lecture and as I am typing instead of speaking I guess you all have escaped this problem. I do occasionally have alot to say depending on whats happening or not at the same time I can also go MIA for an extended period….life is not always that exciting.

So write now I am finishing my level 2 teacher training and am a qualified Yin Yoga level 1 yoga teacher ( certified) I have been practicing for over 25+ years and was trained whilst I was young long before paper certifications where needed. yoga has helped me in the birthing of all 5 of my children along with physical injuries that life has given me ( stupidity).

I am not a vegan but am a vegetarian that listens to my body as to what it needs. I also have to say I do not impose my vegetarianism on my family I believe that every ones body is different and what works for me doesn’t mean it will work for you. We all have different body types physical differences and energy requirement and I am not a medical or Ayuvendic practitioner and therefore have no rights to force my eating on others. Equally I am a vegetarian due to medical reasons as well as choice ( crohns sufferer) meat and gluten have never agreed with me since I was 12.

I wish this to be a great place for people to enjoy and ask questions or comment freely on subjects we speak about. This is a place for everyone to feel accepted for who they are and not critiqued for what they appear to others not to do correctly. This is a site that is for nurturing and caring for each other.

so If you can get past the bad grammar, atrocious punctuation and the lack of occasional spelling mistakes also the times when I do the MIA thing then you will see that what I have written is from the heart and a passion for family,  yoga and meditation the practice that helps make our lives infinitely more spiritual and creates a nurturing environment for ourselves and family members. Om Shanti

Love ‘n’ Light

Namaste.
