BEING

Saturday, 31 October 2015

If I were a young woman now I am not sure I would cope

With all the things that you have – the opportunities the technology

I’d like to think it would be a world of pleasure

But I fear instead, it would only be a world of pressure

Pressure to be the perfect mother, the perfect partner, the perfect daughter, the perfect friend      

Pressure to be successful – a boss – a leader

If I had my time again I wouldn’t create a ‘to do list’ – I would create a ‘to don’t do list’

I would give myself the time to indulge in the things I now understand are the most important

What I wouldn’t give to extend those good night kisses instead of moaning about having to get up early in the morning

What I wouldn’t give for an extra second of cuddling my babies before they became too big to hold

What I wouldn’t give for five more minutes on the dance floor while my legs were still strong enough to carry me

What I wouldn’t give to share a meal with my parents and just be

And this isn’t about stopping our fight for equality; ours was the generation that burnt their bras

But we were never in danger of burning out

No – this is simply about you as a human being – there is a most important word BEING

Lost in the moment, being at peace with the world, being kinder to myself, being kinder to others

Being able to let go and being proud to do so

Believe me – if I were a young woman now I would spend more time being – not doing.

Monday, 15 October 2018

Celebrate with us on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 December 2018. Bellur Krishnamachar Sundararaja Iyengar better known as B.K.S. Iyengar, was the founder of the style of yoga known as "Iyengar Yoga" and was considered one of the foremost yoga teachers in the world. For Iyengar the best way to access the spirit was through proper attention to the alignment of the body in asanas. The bodies innate, though often dormant intelligence functions to check the tendencies of the mind to be in its imagination, delusions, fears and desires. BKS Iyengar was born on 14 December 1918 and died 20 August 2014. In celebration of his centennial year, and also to mark 5 years of our Iyengar school in Hervey Bay, we are holding a series of free events.
