A You-On-You Holiday Date

By | Dublin, Humour, Ireland, Mindfulness, Motivational, Rachelle Hicks, Wellbeing, Yoga, YogaHub

On Monday, a friend of mine recounted a Skype conversation she had with a fellow yoga teacher who is taking a year to live and teach in Peru. This Peru-based friend told her about a weekend excursion to Bolivia where, for the first time in 5 months, she saw television. She set herself up with a hotel room, donned a robe and lounged on the bed while watching The Devil Wears Prada. It was a real treat away from her…

Since we released our video of Rachelle meditating around Dublin we’ve been getting a lot of questions! Art sat down with her post Copper Face Jacks to chat about the calm (and the chaos) she experienced. We hope our project might have inspired you to find some calm, whether you’re on the Ha’penny Bridge or getting your Yoga on at YogaHub 🙂 “In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you”. – Deepak Chopra

Metta Bhavana: Parts IV and V

By | Dublin, Ireland, Mindfulness, Motivational, Rachelle Hicks, Wellbeing, Yoga, YogaHub

This is the last part of the metta bhavana series. It’s a combination of stages IV and V, as it deals with Anonymous and The World. Every one you don’t know. The person who makes your coffee. The person who makes your clothes. The person on the other side of the world eating a sandwich at the same time you are eating a sandwich. Personally, I feel like this is the stage of real magic and growth. Stage I helps…

Metta Bhavana: Part III

By | Dublin, Ireland, Mindfulness, Motivational, Rachelle Hicks, Wellbeing, Yoga, YogaHub

Apart from writing and teaching yoga, I rent out my flat to Dublin visitors. The last time I checked, I’ve had over 50 different guests stay at the flat. I’ve met people who I would now consider friends, as well as people who were a challenge for me to host. I learned about the practice of metta bhavana just before a particularly challenging guest came to stay. Even before she arrived, I was bombarded with nearly 20 emails with various…

Find Calm In The Chaos – YogaHub

By | Asana, Dublin, Humour, Ireland, Meditation, Mindfulness, Motivational, Music, Rachelle Hicks, Teachers, Yoga | No Comments

It’s possible. Honestly, I really felt it. To find calm in the chaos. And, whoa, Dublin, it’s nice to finally meet you. I recommend it. Stop on the sidewalk for 5 minutes and really take a look at your surroundings. Smile at someone you might otherwise pass by. Find a space in your day to say HELLO to the city you live in. It has stuff to say back. Be still long enough to listen. You might find that the…

Metta Bhavana: Part II

By | Dublin, Ireland, Meditation, Mindfulness, Motivational, Rachelle Hicks, Wellbeing, Yoga, YogaHub

It’s like when your best friend or your partner does something that gets under your skin. You know this person so well that your thoughts spill out as not-so-gentle words. But hopefully you’ve been practicing part 1 of metta bhavana towards yourself. You’re calmer. Things are bit more still. You have a new-found respect for yourself, more stability, and want to engage with people in ways that are mindful rather than rash and chaotic. This is part 2 of Metta…
