Keeping #YogaSober

Dear Yoga Teacher,

I’ve got something I need to say to you and I’m going to sound like a party pooper.

Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I can’t remember reading anywhere in the Bhagavad Gita that a fine glass of Merlot goes down well after a challenging Vinyasa class and I don’t think Patanjali was ever found to be swigging on a beer during practice.

Alcohol. Friend or Foe?

Alcohol. What do you think about it? Is it a harmless even healthy addition to a meal, it helps you to relax and socialise or is it addictive, deadly and more dangerous than crack cocaine?  For me it will always be the latter.

My Sobriety

Before finding my true calling I lived in a party lifestyle in London, I consumed copious amounts of alcohol and participated in occasional drug use. At first it was fun but it quickly became a coping strategy and a way for me to survive my own life.
