Hello to all of you my lovely readers!

Perhaps you have been following The Global Yogi for a few years or you have just subscribed to the digest recently.

Regardless of how you found Global Yogi, I want to extend a huge thank you to you.

Thanks for being here and for reading and for being you. We are in this journey of awakening together.

I created The Global Yogi to share my own journey of awakening and growth with you, in the hope that it would be a light on your own journey, so that we could walk together into a life full of self-love, self-acceptance and the fulfilling of our dreams: self realisation, powered by yoga and meditation.

I wanted to share with you all of the places I have been that have been supportive for me in this journey. I wanted to share with you the wise teachers and people I have met who have helped me on my journey. I wanted to share with you the books that I have read that have been pivotal in my understanding of life and of myself. And I wanted to share with you all of my insights along the way.

My mission is the uplift-ment of all of humanity to a higher way of being ~ a higher and more evolved consciousness.

I am an agent of change, helping people to a place where instead of acting out inner pain and conflict through the creation of external pain and conflict, we go inside and we make friends with ourselves, we transform anxiety, and slowly learn to be OK with what is; to heal the inner conflict so that we can dig deep for our gifts and share them with the world.

So this is what I have done for the past 7 years since I launched the site in 2011. My core offering to you has been my monthly Digest emails to yogis worldwide with the latest in events, festivals and more.

But now I am feeling a call in my heart to change direction. Where are you on your life’s journey? Are you also in transition?

I want to extend a huge thanks to my long time supporters, The Yoga Barn, thanks to Linda Madani at Intuitive Flow, to Taksu Spa and Movement Arts who have also been long running clients, to my European associates at Yoga in Salento in Italy and at Akasha Wellness Retreat in Romania and at Suryalila Retreat Centre in Spain. To my friends in Thailand at Vikasa Yoga and The Sanctuary as well as to the New Life Foundation in Chiang Mai.

I am feeling called to share more of my own heart and my own learnings / teachings on this path, while still sharing the events and happenings of my friends and colleagues in the world of yoga and healing in a way that is sustainable long term for my business. Want to know more about this? Just ask.

I want to continue to uplift, to inspire, to engage and to build a community of like minded people on this same mission.

I will be putting on new clothes – not only of Marie Antoinette as a yogi, but as my future self. I am now officially calling her in. My version 43.08, so to speak. 🙂

For those of you who don’t know, as well as a yogi meditative type I write songs and make art sometimes. And I want to find a way to incorporate more of my artistic work into the newest manifestation of GY.

After all, the word of this year is EXPRESS.

Through healthy self-expression, we are able to connect on a deeper level with our fellow humans, and thus, uplift us all.

Here is a gift for you, a song I wrote in Bali, The Temple in the Rain.

This song I wrote living in the rice fields of Teggalalang in 2015 a part of a community of nomadic creative souls who had ended up on this magical island, guided by their heart. I did the drawings during a free wheeling trip through Italy, Croatia, Slovenia and Romania in 2016.

This song is about finding shelter in your heart, for your own soul. It is about finally learning that you are loved, cared for and supported. It’s about knowing that your friends are there for you and ready to receive you. It’s about trusting the universe, trusting in life and letting go.


Much love and gratitude for being on this journey with me.
