For a long time, not a word was said as they all rested their troubles and cares in the soothing balm of her glance. Gone were the cares of conflict. Forgotten was any worry of the universe ceasing to be. Completely absent was the thought of the churning sea of consciousness or any other matter that seemed all-important just moments ago. Only the peace-giving serenity of her glance mattered. Resting in her gaze, all were completely satisfied in every way. Finally she cast her eyes upward and spoke only one word, “Narayana” and then lowered her eyes. 🧘🏾♀️ 🧘🏾♀️ The rising of Lakshmi; Thomas Ashley-Farrand. 📷 @_in_the_flow_ @that_hiphopyoga_chick @lululemonausnz
Abhaya hridaya ~ the mudra of the fearless heart. 💓 How are you acting fearless this week? I’m getting on my big girl panties and improving my financial literacy. I don’t have a great relationship with money & was never taught financial competency. I even filed for insolvency at the tender age of 23 ~ so there’s some repair work to be done in terms of my expert skill of avoidance of difficult financial discussions. Some yogi’s think money is a dirty word, that yoga should always be disconnected from the word “industry”, and that if we truly cared about our students, we’d flit around delivering yoga for free - the reality is that karma yoga doesn’t buy new bolsters for our students, it doesn’t pay the rent on a sacred space for our community to gather, it doesn’t buy groceries for our families. I know this because I frequently don’t pay myself any wages for months and months at a time, so if it was about the money I wouldn’t still be here. BUT it doesn’t negate the fact that cash flow makes a business thrive, and a thriving business can continue to serve its community better and better. So in service, I’m working on nailing my understanding this year of P&L, Budgets, Forecasting, and Balance sheets. Sometimes self-care is bubble baths & Netflix, sometimes it’s getting your shit together and owning your shortcomings so that you can learn and grow. This week, for you, abhaya hridaya - go and grow with your fearless heart. 💓 xx Kaye

Authentic, vulnerable, resilient, powerful, sexual, nurturing, flawed, and beautiful - these are the characteristics of the women we are proud to call friends and community members. One of my teachers once said to me, “you know what I love about the students of Vital Beat? No ego. They love their yoga and the rest they leave at the door”. And they’re absolutely right, we’ve been blessed with down to earth, enthusiastic, genuine, and kind-hearted students (men and women alike!). Don’t ever change, homies. Happy International Women’s Day!

It’s a rough time for so many people right now, there’s heartache, and mind-ache, and body-ache and this vague idea that this was not the year you signed up for. I’m here to tell you that this will pass. This moment in time is as temporary as your emotions; this is not where you get to marinate out your days. These feelings will shift and you’ll look back and wonder how you survived them. All that matters then, is that you DID survive them (the how is not important). So lean in, tune in, trust yourself, and please keep going. Because the other side is there, waiting, and she’s dying to meet you. 💕 🌟
Sunday’s are for family ritual 😍 I always love seeing these three ladies walk through the door for Sunday morning Vinyasa; Miki and her daughters Jas & Lydia - rolling in a squad is one of the best ways to roll to yoga on the weekend, & it’s even more awesome when it crosses generations 😍 🧘🏾♀️
Today marks 3 years since I got a phone call from a real estate agent, approving my lease application for a dilapidated warehouse in a Midland back street..... I had graduated from teacher training just 4 months earlier. Never been one to do anything by halves 😂 So it’s our 3 year opening anniversary in 8 weeks time, what should we do to celebrate?!

“Let’s flip this party and go to yoga instead” @champagnepapi FOUR classes to choose from tonight - see you on the mat homie
🧘🏾♀️What is: Foundational Flowz?🧘🏾♀️ While many of our classes are designed for “all levels”, Foundational Flowz is our Beginners-specific class, designed just for newbies to the mat. Rather than committing you to a fixed course, Foundational Flowz is a rolling class that you can drop in to for as many sessions as you need, and return to any time you need a refresher! With a different focus each week, simple flows, and lots of opportunity to workshop poses (and ask questions!), Foundational Flowz is the perfect introduction to a love of life on the mat. 💕 💫9.30am Saturday’s Midland, and 💫10am Saturday’s Edgewater
