The honourable Sally by Sally

Hello, I’m Sally Whelan

Most of my days I pretend that I have a number of jobs, when really, I just lounge about on the beach in Byron Bay all day limbering up in a very yogic fashion and collecting bugs for my next jewellery collection….

If I’m feeling naughty I love to eat copious amounts of liquorice and listen to Madelene Peroux, while lounging around in the nude.

If I’m feeling nice I love to cook ridiculous amounts of healthy food for my friends.

Once upon a moment I went to my yoga class and I thought I wonder if anyone has ever broken their nose during chaturanga dandasana

One time, during alfresco yoga the wind changed and I was stuck in jumping mouse pose for a couple of days. That will teach me.

One day, when I rule the world and it is law to eat liquorice and liquorice flavoured anything all the live long day I will also be able to perform a graceful hand stand without my childhood fear of my shoulders collapsing

If I have one piece of yoga advice for you it’s this: Do not compare yourself to anyone else, whether it be in a yoga class, or a clarinet class……its just too messy to let your mind go there and you’ll never get back alive….. be wonky and beautiful…..x
