The ocean within: finding balance through surfing and Yoga
Kindness (maitri) and empathy (karuna), compassion (mudita), and patience (upeksa) are the four qualities of your heart. Cultivate them in good times (sukha) as well as in bad times (duhkha). Remember them when everything succeeds (punya), or even when something fails (apunya). This transforms your inner awareness (citta) and you experience yourself in a world full of holy clarity (prasadana).

A place to call home
The practice of yoga and surfing may seem like two very different disciplines, but for me they both serve as a sanctuary to recharge, find equilibrium, and attain inner peace. Through their practice, I am guided back home, to a silent place within myself, where clarity about our heart’s qualities, and a deep connection with nature can be experienced.
Mind and Body as a Unit
C.G Jung, the famous Swiss psychiatrist and psychologist, once said,
“Mind and body are separate parts of an organic whole. Health is a state of complete balance of mind, body and spirit.”
Balance it is
