Looking through the eye of the moon. Sometimes lo-res photography creates interesting effects!  And sometimes a little spoonie creativity turns small moments into something magical.  I didn’t have the spoons the go out with my tripod & dslr to capture the super moon eclipse. I just stepped out of my front door in my pjs, soaked in the moonlight & found this view.  #supermoon #contemplativephotography #gratitude #astrophotography #bluemoon #bloodmoon #supermooneclipse #bloodmooneclipse #mooneye #lunareye #luna #lunatico #moonlight #spoonielife #spoonieyoga #slowlife #artlife #spoonieart #spooniestrong #diversability #creatability #rest #restorativeyoga #melbourneyoga #accessibleyoga
Light. Movement. Mystery. Clarity.  2017 has been full of new growth & unexpected challenges along with precious moments of kindness & stillness.  Often at the end of the year I think ‘There goes another year of chronic illlness, another year of living the slow life!’ But this year I am feeling so much gratitude for all the people, practices & places that have supported & enabled me to get through the year with laughter, compassion & creativity.  For me, spoonie strength is the ability to cultivate resilience through sustainable self-care & creative self-nourishment. But I also know that giving to others (in whatever ways I can without sacrificing my health) also connects me with a sense of spoonie strength in my heart. Living is giving as well as receiving! So give your loving kindness this nye & feel the power of your heart.  #2017 #nye #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniestrong #spoonieart #spoonieyoga #contemplativephotography #slowlife #yogalife #artlife #rest #restorativeyoga #somaticmovement #embodiedecology #livingisgiving #melbourneyoga #gumtree #gumblossom #nye2017
Viewing the world from a supine position can turn things upside down! As spoonies our lives can feel upside down & unacknowledged because we spend so much time lying down!  I like taking photos from this position because it is such a different way of seeing the world. And by valuing this perspective, we can generate appreciation for spoonie lives & find gratitude for the diversity of human experience.  #diversability #spoonie #spoonieart #spoonielife #invisicrip #upsidedown #gumtrees #slowlife #yogalife #artlife #contemplativephotography #slowmotion #rest #restorativeyoga #somaticmovement #melbourneyoga #mecfs #mecfsrecovery #spooniexmas
“You arrive feeling tired & you leave feeling elated.” - Sue, Restorative Yoga student. It was Sue’s first class tonight & it was my last class of the year. So much gratitude to all my students & my beautiful workplace. See you for more Restorative Yoga & Somatic Movement practice in 2018. #restorativeyoga #somaticyoga #spoonieyoga #rest  #kundalinihouse #somaticmovement #solstice #somatics #melbourneyoga #spoonielife #slowlife #yogalife #artlife #downtime #selfcare #slow #mecfs #mecfsrecovery #2017

Exploring the coastal scrub of Bunurong country. These gatekeeper trees made me pause before entering their private world. I swear they did something to my brain because as I entered the intimate space beneath the tangled canopy, I felt my mind radically slowing down & falling into state of quiet reverie. #bushretreat #bushtherapy #bushwalk #embodiedecology #naturemeditation #contemplativephotography #slowlife #spoonielife #yogalife #artlife #somatics #rest #restorativeyoga #somaticmovement #trees #banksia #gumtrees #stillness #wonthaggiheathlands #bunurongcountry #bunurongcoast #melbourneyoga
‘May I be very light.’ The poetic conjurings of Del Kathryn Barton’s titles inscribed on the skin of the bodies in her paintings are inspiring my somatic movement & writing practice this week. #slowlife #spoonielife #yogalife #artlife #somaticmovement #somaticwriting #mecfs #mecfsrecovery #melbourneart #ngv #delkathrynbarton #thehighwayisadisco  #melbourneyoga
East meets west in Xu Shen’s massive Reclining Buddha et al. How to find a sense of peace in body-mind with all these characters clamouring all over you? #ngv #xushen #recliningbuddha #contemplativephotography #slowlife #spoonielife #yogalife #melbourneart #melbourneyoga

Akio Makigawa’s simple white square with 4 lines of timber curved by inserted rocks should have been surrounded by meditation cushions to encourage visitors to stop, drop & contemplate this sublime zen sculptural installation. I sat on the floor of the gallery to enjoy the peaceful feeling it evoked & discovered the magic of viewing this work at eye level. #zenart #ngv #ngvianpotter #australianart #japaneseart #80sart #akiomakigawa #sculpture #installation #contemplativephotography #slowlife #spoonielife #yogalife #melbourneart #melbourneyoga

Cats often coil into an embryonic spinal curve to sleep. Reconnecting with our embryological past takes Restorative Yoga practice to a deeper level. Looking fwd to being your guide to embryological embodiment when the Deep Rest workshops return again next year! #rest #restorativeyoga #somaticyoga #somaticmovement #spoonieyoga #accessibleyoga #diversability #thisiswhatayogilookslike #bmc #embryology #catyoga #sleepingcat #catsofinstagram #catnap #devonrex #yogatherapy #somatictherapy #mecfs #mecfsrecovery #melbourneyoga #slowlife #spoonielife #yogalife
Dramatic boulders & forested hills rising above the yellowed grasslands - this place gave me shivers. #alwayswasalwayswillbe #taungurungcountry #aboriginalland #gumtrees #contemplativephotography #somaticsensing #naturemeditation #slowlife #spoonielife #mecfs #mecfsrecovery #melbourneyoga
