Ally Bogard

My entire life I have searched for context and to be embraced by, and entangled in, the world around me. Working as a communicator of the practice of yoga for the past ten years has gifted me more than I can express. Unexpectedly, and most importantly, it has shown me the cracks in the façade of my own reality, limiting beliefs, and perceptions of “impossibility”. It has helped me blur the lines between the world, and myself and it has given me whole-hearted trust in the process and the practice of yoga and meditation.

I don’t necessarily believe in magik, for that would leave room for there to be anything other than extraordinary forces at play in nature, I participate in life with a passion for making what is ancient and time-tested relevant for the modern-day nervous system. With a commitment to celebrating and expanding balance in life, and with a whole-hearted apology for the ways in which I stumble to teach, find humour and present-day application of ancient, star-delivered teachings – this is my work.

Teaching yoga has always been about communicating my own experience of consciousness and then sharing with people my travel tips to negotiate their own journey through the cosmos. I am definitely wrong more than I am right, yet feel the Soul evolves equally through “miss-taken” steps.

I can think of no better way to spend time then playing in nature to go high, and then traversing my inner nature to go deep. I choose to practice connection through prayer, all-night dance, refined asana, meditation, and devotion to the Light and by creating good-relations. With a reverent irreverence and a profane sense of humour regarding the sacred – I practice presence to wake up, to remember, and to reunite – and hope I teach in the same manner.

“All a person can do in this life is gather about her integrity, her imagination, and her individuality – and with these ever with her, out front and in sharp focus, leap into the dance of experience.”
