Did you know that Koh Phangan is considered one of the top 3 places in the world to watch the full moon rise?!
Getting to watch the big orange moon sparkle across on the ocean is so magical. Such a delight. This full moon has been inviting me into a more quiet space with a lot more introspection.
How’s it been for you? High energy? Low energy? Clarity or fullness of mind maybe? Reply and let me know – I’d love to hear.
Here are some fresh inspirations for you to help kickstart your weekend. 🙂
Quote I’m thinking about:
“On this path effort never goes to waste
And there is no failure. Even a little effort
Toward spiritual awareness will orotect you
From the greatest fear. (2:4)
– The Bhagavad Gita

TEDx Talk to Inspire You:
The surprising habits of Original Thinkers – Adam Grant
I’ve watched this at least 3 x now. I often find myself in a state of procrastination. I know my deadline is ages away, and I endeavour to use this wisdom, to try and avoid stress and prepare for it with ample time. Time and time again, I find that despite my efforts and intentions, I pretty much only buckle down and get ‘er done just before the deadline. Turns out I’m not alone: Some level of procrastination, giving ideas and projects time to gestate, is actually a key ingredient to creativity and original thinking.
Have a wonderful weekend & thanks again for being a part of this Pure Flow Yoga Tribe.
We LOVE you!
With Love & Blessings

Instagram Post of the Week
In a world filled with thousands of yoga retreats 🌏it can be confusing to choose 🤷♀️ This is what makes Pure Flow unique:
1.No roads! no cars! 🚘Our paradise is only accessible by long tail boat⛵️ The secluded natural environment and incredible tropical beauty 🌴provides an ideal opportunity to let go and just listen to the waves 🌊
2. Yoga teachers that are highly experienced in facilitating retreats 🤸♀️ While many teachers lead a couple of retreats a year, we do this every week for many months of the year and love it💖
3.A strong focus on meditation and yoga philosophy📖 We love teaching students about the entire system of yoga🙏🏻 This yoga stuff is so much more than bending yourself into crazy shapes🧘♀️
4.Community, connection, mutual support and encouraging each other on the yoga journey💕Many of our students meet life long friends on retreat and it’s beautiful to witness✨

2 week yoga retreat at Pure Yoga Flow
I had the chance to participate in the 2-week yoga retreat and it surpassed my expectations. Not only I got to deeper my yoga skills and practice, but I became familiar with mediation philosophy and learned many new tools. The atmosphere and energy of the place really helped to connect with others and to focus on the moment. The teachers impressed me with their competencies but also with their openness and care for all of us. They can adapt to any kind of yogis and explain concepts so everyone understands. I loved everything about this retreat, including the food and beverages available on this part of the island. – Laurence, Quebec, Canada
