If you're looking to add another treat to the table for Christmas, there's still time to give these Ginger Snap biscuits a go 🫶🏽

A subtle taste of Christmas, with a kick of ginger to satisfy the palate. Soft enough even for Grandma to enjoy. 🤶🏼

And remember you're not looking for perfection here.👌🏼 🌟 ❤️ It's those imperfections that make the baking just that little bit more special.

A little like life right 🥰 It's those imperfections that make us all a little more special. Embrace them all # # #

Breakfast😍🤔👌🏼

Perhaps I have had one of these nourishing pieces of goodness for brekky before. Only because I'm aware of each ingredient contained, pure goodness, and maple syrup for the sweetener.

And I made them myself to share with friends and family, and to have for breakfast 😂

Those of you playing at home may notice a ring in 'shell choc' hiding in the centre. Taking all guesses.👌🏼🤔😍. What flavour hides in the shell ?

Sharing this pic & story here as Christmas draws nearer, as a little reminder that the thought and care behind our gifts and actions are what really count. 💚🍃🎄❤️

Making a difference.... One gathering at a time... We never really know just how much we can change a life by sharing practice and values that ring true...

The last 3 years we've been coming together here in the St Luke's Anglican Church Hall, sharing practice throughout the year, and holding a Christmas Fundraiser class for Families of Domestic Violence.🎄

This December, Saturday the 2nd, we're shaking things up and taking this class over to at Richlands.

'Ahimsa', meaning non-violence from the yoga sutras of Patanjali, an appropriately named place for us to come together this Christmas.🎄 A can be whatever size it needs to be, making life a little easier for those in need.

All profits from this class, aka this yoga go to the families within the Centacare Domestic Violence program, making a difference for their Christmas 🎄




















10/09/2023

🎶Invocation to Patanjali 🎶

Whilst we may not understand the meaning, or indeed create a seamless blissful sound through our voices, the vibrations of this mantra seep into our being subliminally as we choose the practice.

With diligent focus, try again, try again, try again. And remember to smile and have a little fun in the process.☯️🩷✨

Practice is a 24/7 gig, on and off the mat kind of approach to life.

'Finding the most balanced, settled, natural contented version of yourself.
Sleep, eat, have fun, or be grumpy.
Nourish yourself and make a commitment to it.'
Dena Kinsberg 🙏🏼

From the yoga sutras of Patanjali,
I.13 tatra sthitau yatnah abhyasah

Absolute pleasure to share asana practice time, teamed with Philosophy chats, nature connect time, with teachers, students, friends.

How will you nourish yourself this week? 🩷
Each day🩷
Something just for you🩷

Dust off your yoga mat and join me for practice this Saturday.
Booking directly through Peak Physique website, or message me to join.
Breathe, move, rinse, repeat ✨
✨See you Saturday✨

A reflection on this International Yoga Day.

Our first 2 limbs of yoga, the Yamas and Niyamas, are the most wonderful starting place of importance on this International Yoga Day.

Yamas
🌟Ahimsa🌟Satya🌟Asteya🌟Brahmacharya🌟Aparigraha🌟

Niyamas
✨Saucha✨Santosha✨Tapas✨
Svadhyaya✨IshvaraPranidhana✨

How we hold ourselves in this life comes first, before the other 6 limbs, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana, Samadhi.

Find peace ✌🏼Find nature 🍃Connect 🫶🏼
Find space for Yoga in your life, in whichever form it presents itself to you. A true human nature🧘‍♀️🐦🙏🏼

Small gathering of lovers of the practice of yoga, once a month we come together for sharing of class.

This Sunday turns out it'll be Vinyasa we will share, as we meet for the first class back to kick start 2023. ✨✨✨3-4pm✨✨✨
St Luke's Anglican Church Hall, Annerley

Arriving on our mats with no expectations, other than to be present for ourselves, which in turn allows us to be present for those around us.
✨Move, breath, connect and be.✨

Other times we could share in this space, Yin Yoga with singing bowl sound scapes healing our bodies.🎶

We will come together for a full day retreat later in this half of the year, on a date to be confirmed. Music, yoga, breathing, meditation and tasty food... Yes please❤️

We will share practices and time together on Mulgumpin retreat in March this year.
All places have been filled this time around, but if a yoga getaway and nature connect sounds like something that interests you, please send me a message.

Feel the love from 'inside', where it counts and rings true to you.

✨While the practice on the day pictured was not in the Ashtanga practices, the yogic principals are carried through always.

💚Sealing off our time on the mat today I offered a sharing the Mangala mantra, evoking amazing feelings from within, being chanted after such a physical practice. A peaceful end to practice, sealing in our efforts and offering out to the world.

🕉️A wish for peace , prosperity and happiness to the world. This chant is a dedication to others, offering hope and peace.

❤️I guess that is why it felt so good inside of me, through the sharing and practice of yoga, and watching students evolve in their own time, we shared this space once again.

🎶I'm working on the technicalities of sharing, but for those curious, there are many texts available for more knowledge, or ask me next time we come together for practice.

Eternally grateful for all the practices of yoga. 🕉️🫶🧘‍♀️✨🙏🏼
🙏🏼 for amazing captures from my day retreat ✨🙏🏼

There's always more than one way to approach a task... the challenge is in the acceptance and willingness to try something new...😏
✨To follow instructions or go with your instincts ✨

Photos from Shaz Lea's post 18/10/2022

🍃Three plants🍃
All with different stories of growth and change✨💚✨

🍃✨🍃The first plant pictured is one of my fav home plants. I took it into work to brighten up my desk and it struggled in the environment.. No fresh air, no sunlight, and perhaps a little too much water, as I tried to determine it's needs. Once a thriving plant, turned to sick and almost dead. How could this be?😥. I took it home and it now thrives💚

✨🍃✨The second, in need of a good drink and some sunlight, thriving now with its needs being met, bringing fresh new growth.

✨🍃✨The third, a peace lilly, really struggled in the 40°c heat of a hot room. (I didn't place it there😏). I removed it from that environment, to a new home in a hallway, and before too long, this new growth has begun to shine through.

Why the talk about plants you may ask?
I guess it's because I can draw some similarities between these plants right now and my own life. I've been in some places and around some people who really made me quite unwell, not at all shining or feeling like sharing and embracing all I have to offer this world.

I've had to get really uncomfortable... struggle, be scared, and worried...I've been withdrawn and scared at times to talk or even pick up the phone.

While it's not always possible to remove ourselves from some situations or the pull that some people have on us, we can embrace the positive environments. The practices & the teachings of yoga. Our connection to nature and family ❤️

Never underestimate the importance of a healthy environment. Make subtle changes to your environment, and even with the acknowledgement that change is possible, that positive journey can begin. Shine as we are intended to, just as those three plants have begun shine in their new environment ✨💚✨🍃✨

There's this practice of life called 'Yoga'.
✨ Far more than the physical ✨

You are all amazing human beings, and it is I who gives this moment of thanks to you, for your presence today at 'A Moving Meditation' day Retreat.

The dishes are done, the car's unpacked and I've taken the time to read what it is you are grateful for, as I unpack my basket of goodies..🧘‍♀️🙏🏼🥰The practice is high up there👌🏼☺️

Thank you for allowing us to dive into the practices of yoga in a way 60 minutes of class just does not allow... 🕉️ Hold onto your yoga high for as long as you can...

Cup refilled🍳☕🍅

How often do we feel like we're constantly giving, ALL the time.... Well maybe you don't,
but if you're that kind of person, 'a giver,' you can easily overdo the giving and discover that nothing remains in your tank for yourself. I used to be that person... Not any more 😏 Don't get me wrong, I'm still more than generous with sharing my time and talents, but I've found that line of balance.❤️

What relevance is the pic I'm sharing you may ask?🤔. It's my recharge go to meal, taken the time to prepare, and allowed myself time to sit and enjoy.

Food with meaning.. Eggs lovingly hatched and gifted to me (Ty Louise), my fav green for the moment, organic Tuscan kale. Cute lil mushrooms and tomatoes, topped off with a home brewed coffee..
👌🏼☕❤️Ok, so my latté art could do with some work here 😏

Remember to fill your cup sometime soon x

What else would I be doing on my morning off🥰
Baking for Friday, treat day for the fam 🥰
For myself👌🏼
And for sharing at upcoming Awaken Retreat 🧘‍♀️🧘🙏🏼

Nourish from within first, then everything else will be gently guided into place❤️

A Gift that keeps giving. My mother taught me to bake. She could have just made everything for me, then I wouldn't have this gift to share with all today❤️🙏🏼https://shazpyle.com/recipes/macadamia-choc-chia-cookies

Yoga and Nourishment for Everyone

Yoga is a part of everyday life for me, even if I’m not on my mat. Its about a lot more than just a physical practice. It’s how we act and respond to day to day life. I’ve used the practice of different breathing exercises, to help navigate my way through those tricky situations that arise, and look forward to sharing with you all.

With many teachers to learn from, I bring to you a playful style of Vinyasa class where you there is no judgement. A practice for all levels to be enjoyed

Work still lies ahead for me for another passion and project of mine, creator of tasty treats and healthy food. Watch this space as I develop that side of my being :)
