The Yoga Suits Her Blog

I’ve been blogging for 12 years now. At first, I was quite nervous about publishing my thoughts. Because I was shy about writing, my old posts were almost exclusively photos of the view from our bedroom in our Tambourine Bay house.

Remarkably, my original Ville Blog still exists. Does anything on the internet ever go away?  It ran from November 05, 2006 to January 12, 2010 and it’s still just where I left it.  If you’d like to have a look, the address is http://thevilleblog.blogspot.com.au/

These days, because there are way too many YSH posts to browse through-over 1200-I’ve put some major themes together in The Vault.  I hope this makes it easier to find exactly what you want.

The link to the article has been sent ’round the world thousands of times on the Internet, along with responses, counter-arguments, blog posts, and YouTube clips. […]

A Blessed Marriage

A Blessed Marriage

I feel hugely fortunate to have had nearly 20 years of partnership from my husband Daniel in my journey along the yoga path. Perhaps some of the yogis out there have that sort of sentiment regarding their spouses.
Daniel doesn’t in any shape or form consider himself a yogi, although he has been practising the discipline with me for these last two decades. […]

Yoga Steps into Action: From Newtown into the World

Yoga Steps into Action: From Newtown into the World

I was very privileged, to participate with 30 other individuals, in the inaugural weekend workshop of Off the Mat, Into the World.
I drove down from our rural paradise on Mitchells Island with the intention expanding my yoga community and discovered that the course delivered that goal and so much more.
The experienced, professional course leaders came over from New Zealand to introduce the work of the organisation to Australia. […]
