Happy international yoga day! I’ve tried to write this little blurb a few times but it always seems to come out cheesey. So be it.
Practicing yoga has changed my life. It has given me a sense of peace in where I belong in this world. When my emotions and my my mind start to unravel, it puts everything into perspective and all the pieces seem to fit perfectly back together.
It has opened my mind in ways I never knew were possible and where I used to see hate, I now feel love. Where I used to feel pain I am learning to let go. When we look inwards, there is so much waiting to be discovered.
We are all people living life on this beautiful, remarkable planet and if we all practiced yoga I truly believe we could live lives with world peace.
Thank you to Powerliving Manly and the wonderful yogis there, especially Shauna, Adam, Truth, Gina, Duncan and Keenan for sharing and encouraging me to get onto my mat.
Now it’s your turn.
“Pain is physical; suffering is mental. Beyond the mind there is no suffering. Pain is essential for the survival of the body, but none compels you to suffer. Suffering is due entirely to clinging or resisting; it is a sign of our unwillingness to move on, to flow with life.” – Nisargadatta Maharaj
Last year I played this song in a beautiful church as a bride walked down the aisle on her wedding day and she asked me to record it for you, so here you go!

We stumbled across Larissa and Jake at a wedding fair and after listening to Larissa play, we knew that her beautiful music would be perfect in creating a relaxed atmosphere for our special day. Luckily, she was available, and we were able to work with her to create a live music and DJ package that best suited our needs. In the lead up to the wedding and on the day, Larissa and Jake were a pleasure to work with. They found a balance between offering advice and working with our requests. Their performance at our reception was a perfect mixture of fun and romance, with many of our guests commenting on their beautiful music!

I first heard Larissa singing live at a club and knew as soon as I heard her beautiful voice that I wanted her to sing at our wedding. Larissa sang at our ceremony & canapés break and provided a lovely touch of elegance to the afternoon. Her playlist was perfect for the occasion and at our request she learnt our favourite songs.
Larissa is extremely professional and I never had a moment’s doubt that she wouldn’t be a perfectionist. Our guests were so happy to be treated to Larissa’s beautiful voice while they were enjoying the lovely setting by the water in Manly.
Thank you, Larissa, you made our day very special and you were such a delight to work with.
