Sunday 18 September – 2011 – Vernal Equinox – Ovarian Temple – Dance of Life – Fitzroy
The Dance of Life Yoga Studio in Fitzroy, Melbourne, Australia, is my yoga home. It is here that I have taught and learned for nearly 20 years. Under the sharp and cheeky and intelligent eye of my teacher Eugenie Knox, I flourished. It is here, in the safe harbour of the Dance of Life, that Ovarian Temple evolved. There, and also under the gentle tutelage of my beloved, who died in February 2014.
The day and the night are balanced and so we seek balance with Ovarian Temple.
