Roots of Divine Love – The Root Chakra

The first of our seven-part series, focusing on the physical, metaphysical and mythological/archetypal aspects of the Root chakra. Here, one can get a sense of the true nature of yoga, of which the asana practice (physical postures) only forms a small part of. The rishis of 5000+ years ago knew this mystical way of being and doing, and now it is available to all of us!

In the the sign of the fishes, we can connect today with inspiration (to allow for spirit to pass through us), art, especially poetry, imagination, and all the ways we can express that which is ineffable. With this little side project of Kai Von Pannier and I, we endeavor to showcase that yoga is so much more than just physical postures on the mat, and is instead a way of living and being, in alignment with our Soul’s expression.

This video is the first of our seven-part series, focusing on the physical, metaphysical and mythological/archetypal aspects of the Root chakra, revealing that for which we do not have words for, unless expressed through poetry, mythology and art. If we only think in terms of facts, we miss the truth and the magic which is right there in front of us. Please take 6 minutes of your day to let the essence of the root chakra wash over you, and connect with us if you wish to explore yoga in all its glorious facets.

The Manduka Prolite – it’s not a baby Pro

So now you know all about the Manduka Pro, it’s time to introduce you to the Prolite.

The Prolite is made from the same materials as the Pro,but is 4mm thick and still offers great support. The Prolite as the name suggest is much lighter than the Pro so it makes it ideal for mobile yogi’s and teachers.

I have been using my Prolite for nearly 3 years now and it has developed a very comfortable feel whilst still looking and behaving like a new mat. It’s actually quite embarrassing sometimes !

There is a lifetime warranty on the PRolite, the same as the Pro.

The Manduka mats reviewed here are available from Yoga Essentials and they will deliver to your door!

Finding Your Soul Mat

Selecting the ideal yoga mat for your practice is a very personal choice and can be quite confusing! There are so many questions that need to be answered. Questions like “Will I slip?”, “Is it suitable for for hot yoga?”, “Is it eco-friendly?”, “how long will it last?” “What colour?” are just a few of the most common asked.

It can be a daunting task and it is an important one as your mat is your space and you need to be comfortable with your mat for a long time. You don’t want to worry about your prime support system when doing your practice, after all the mat has to be ‘there’ with you.

I will be featuring a series of videos that have been developed by Manduka that will help you select your soul mat. The very first one will give an overview of Manduka’s most popular mats. There is one for everyone, I can guarantee it ! So here goes with the first video: Enjoy.


Oh, I almost forgot, all the mats featured are available from Yoga Essentials, so you can just order from their online store.
