All Will Be Revealed....

December 12, 2016

 

I count myself as one of the lucky ones…

 

Through the teachings of Yoga, we are taught to trust in the process. So I did just this and took my leap of faith into the unknown around 7 years ago. I have been able to teach along side many other amazing teachers around the globe, sharing my passion of yoga. 

 

Sure I remember back to the start, being all bright eyed and “green” to the yoga scene and thinking that this life I was transforming into would be full of love and kindness. After all, I was moving from the corporate sector… anything had to be better...right? 

 

Wrong. I was met with the harsh reality within my first 6 months of teaching to learn that Yoga is a business in today’s reality. So I take this onboard with the lessons of process in mind. I trust being open to “what is, just is”. I was lead through what was a hard road to understand that “life is what you make it”…

 

Let me also add right here that if it wasn’t for the support of my people, particularly my “El Diablo Chicken”, there is no way I would be where I am right now, creating my own version of a Yoga Life.

 

I remember back to the days when I had no money and I used to ride my bike to the little Yoga space we had in Newcastle, Australia. Again trusting that whoever showed up to yoga, was supposed to be there. Watching the stress pass over the money that I didn’t have or how I would pay my rent. My mission was to give all of me to those that arrived at class for the day, those that had arrived to take the journey on their mat.

 

Sure I might have gone home and cried to my flat mates saying “I don’t know if I can afford rent this week” but as my last dollar would go, all of a sudden my bank account would fill up the very next day. Funny, how the teachings of yoga shine through in every aspect of your life if you allow yourself to see them. 

 

I was given the opportunity of a lifetime from my now great friend and fellow teacher in Sydney, to go and participate in assisting and learning from her… I didn’t hesitate for a single second!  So in my little beat up “red beast”, Suzuki 1991 hatchback, window’s down air conditioning, leaks so bad that when it would rain the passenger side would fill up with water, and after the rain disappeared I started to cultivate grass on the floor of the passenger side… loved this car! I’d fill it up with fuel and take $20 in my bag, to buy my coffee and some lunch! Off I would go.

 

I spent a couple of years doing this just to learn from my teacher, and someone that opened their heart and soul up to me. Why wouldn’t I? Again, we are taught to take what is offered, when it’s offered, with love… 

 

Now I have shared in Yoga classes, retreats, workshops, & teacher trainings throughout the world, I believe that if you are supposed to be a teacher, you will be. Because it’s your life’s path – you don’t choose it, it chooses you. Now we can fight with our mind all we want but when you let go and trust in the process all will be revealed.

 

And let’s face it! Sometimes reality is a big slap in the face with your yoga mat! But when we get through to the other side, all is revealed. I never understood why I worked in HR, or why I took a role as Assistant Manager at a Hotel, or why I completed a Diploma in Events Management?!? Ahhhh but patience my dear… all is coming…

 

And here it is, all the skills and experience I gained from my previous "mystery" choices have come to light 10 years or so later. I get it now. Like a Bower Bird I just had to collect all the aspects of skills and knowledge I needed to be able to offer the most unique and open  yoga experiences. Talk about gratitude for my life! Every day is full of planning or running Yoga Retreats, Yoga Teacher Trainings, Workshops or Mentoring programs - all in my own bower bird inspired Tara South Style :)

 

I watch the commercialization of Yoga, determined to ensure that my own part in that process is considered and personally ethical. For me it's all about the intention.  The over advertising of yoga is a great thing, so many people have now come into contact with a life-changing phenomenon that may not have found it otherwise.  Those that want to go deeper then the Asana (poses) will search for it… Those that want to stay in the Asana will have healthy movement in their life… everybody wins right!

 

Now all this said bring me to this point…

I don’t live my life through “love and light”, as it’s not my Satya “truth”.  I don’t claim to be an enlightened being of this world. I am human. I share what has been my Life’s story thus far through my teachings and writings. I am dedicated to assisting others discover their own greatness, unlock their full potential, and live their truth, through the teachings of Yoga.
