“Yoga is the cessation of mind”
– Some Yoga wisdom from Patanjali

I am a blogger ok… leave my mind alone! I am a blogger and a writer, and a talker… what can I say? But I am also a meditator. And I CAN say that a basic yoga practice and mediation may have saved me from a never ending circle of anxiety and depression.

But now on the other side of that, I can say that I’ve come to terms with the thinking mind, and even indulge it every now and again – like in this blog, which does, after all, promise something to think about! In fact, my first significant journey towards mental stillness was on a humble yoga course at the local Buddhist yoga centre.

So – cessation of the mind – well yes, you need that. But to me the mind is like a body – a thing you get to explore for a limited time of life on earth, so see what it’s up to and where it can go.

Yours,

Restaurant reviewers find it easier to travel incognito, and so do I. I travel a lot for work and use this as an excuse check out yoga classes, yoga courses and yoga colleges around my home country, Australia. In this yoga blog, I refer to yoga centres in Sydney. I am not actually a yoga teacher, just a passionate yoga student.

I have practised yoga in the US and have done yoga courses in India but have no bias towards any yoga style. Actually, maybe I am biased to a yoga style, or at least certain methods of education applied in yoga courses, but I’ll leave it to you to find out what that is. My mission? I just want people to think a little deeper about yoga.
