Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How much time do I need for the course?
This is a self paced course, so you can take all the time you need. There are ten video lessons between two and ten minutes each, and workbook for you play and dream with. You could finish each of the lessons in a couple of minutes, or you could spend a full day on each one. It’s entirely up to you.
Like Rick Hanson said when I interviewed him on my A Grateful Life podcast, there’s good news and there’s real news! The good news is you could work through this course in just a couple of hours. The real news is, the put into it, the more you get out of it. Setting aside a full day to work through the material (create a day retreat for yourself!), or a couple of hours each week for ten weeks would be optimal.
Q. What time each day will you be teaching?
The online shala is open 24/7, and you can access the lessons whenever you like.
This is one of the awesome things about studying with me online. You can practice at any time of day or night.
Q. How are the lessons delivered?
There are 10 video lessons and an accompanying workbook. There is also an audio version and a written transcript of the lessons, so you can learn in the way that works best for you.
Q. Do I get to keep the workbook and the meditations?
Yes, absolutely! The workbook, meditations and the audio version of the lessons are yours to download and keep forever. I hope that you’ll continue to use them and reflect on your desires long after the course has finished.
Q. I’d like some coaching sessions to support me with this work.
Absolutely! You can book a session with me or one of the therapists in my team. We can meet either face-to-face in my office in Mullumbimby or via Skype/phone. Do get in touch if you’d like to book a session after you’d purchased the course.
Q. What kind of things will be talk about in a clarity coaching session?
We can talk about anything that comes up for you during the eCourse, or really anything else that you would like to discuss with me.
Q. I’d like to have more than just one coaching session with you, is that possible?
Abso-jolly-lutely! In addition to the 50 minute clarity session, I also offer an Embodiment package (fortnightly sessions for 3 months, $1050) and a Byron Half Day Intensive ($750). Do get in touch if you’d like to book one of these other coaching packages in addition to the Living Your Heartfelt Desires eCourse.
Q. I can’t touch my toes, can I still do this course?
No toe touching is required in this course (actually, this shouldn’t stop you from doing yoga at all, but that’s a whole other story).
In this course we’ll be reflecting, meditating, dreaming and brainstorming about creating a year (and life) that is in accordance with your deepest heartfelt desires.
Q. I’m a yoga teacher, will I learn anything new?
This is not your traditional yoga course. It’s a course about self reflection, letting go and taking action to live a life that’s in accordance with our heartfelt desires.
It’s yoga off-the-mat.

Q. What is a shala?
A shala is a sacred space, where students come to learn about themselves through the teachings of yoga. It’s a kind of a sanctuary where learning and healing take place under the guidance of a teacher. Be sure to take off your shoes before you step in!
Q. Are all the practices safe?
I’ve done my very best to select practices and teachings that are safe for teaching in an online environment, however I cannot and do not know your specific needs and situation.
So please listen to your body and your intuition, and only try what you feel comfortable with. Please take care of your self, and take responsibility for your own safety. If you have a current illness please talk to your doctor or health care professional before you try any of the practices. By taking part in the course, you acknowledge that your health and safety is your own responsibility, and that you will make choices that are safe for you.
Q. I’m pregnant, can I do the practices?
Yes, this course is safe during pregnancy (please see question above).
Q. How long will I be able to access the course?
You can access to the online shala for a year after you start the course.
Q. What techy things do I need?
You need an email address, internet access, and a device to read the emails and play the video lessons.
A iPhone or iPad (or similar) is fine if you just want to stream the practices (e.g. play them using the internet).
If you want to download and print the workbook, you’ll need access to a printer (if you don’t have access to a printer, you can still view the workbook from your computer or device, and use your journal to record the answers instead).
Q. I’m not very techy, do you think I can do it?
We’ve made the process very simple and intuitive. My husband Stefan, is an awesome yoga teacher and the shala IT guy, and he’s on hand to answer any questions you have along the way. If you’ve made it this far, I reckon you can do it!
Q. I noticed your prices are in Australian Dollars, can I still take part if I don’t have an Australian bank account.
Absolutely! You can pay via PayPal or credit card with any currency. The techy elves will do the conversion for you at the checkout.
