Here is our latest advert which will appear in selected magazines in August and September 2012.
Last weekend we launched our new website! And we are very excited 🙂
The main changes are a completely new design and layout, a new navigation, and shopping cart process. Overall it is a fairly substantial overhaul and upgrade of the previous site.
We have moved to using a tailored shopping cart software called FoxyShop together with dedicated payment processor FoxyCart. It has been a pleasure working with their beautiful software to create our new website.
We hope you enjoy the new experience! If you encounter any problems using the new site (we expect to have to iron out some bugs as we go) or want to let us know your feedback, please use the green contact form (click on the floating green tab on the right hand side) or go to our contact page.
Enjoy and Namaste!

Below is the video we created to give you some background behind Liveyogalife.com and its vision.
Yoga Aid Australian Challenge will be on in a venue near you on 9 September 2012.
The Challenge is a special, 2 hour yoga practice held in hundreds of locations worldwide. In large events such as capital cities, the Challenge is lead by a series of 12 teachers, many of whom are internationally renowned. In community events (held in local areas by yogis from the community) the Challenge is lead by teachers from a variety of local studios.
Whilst attendance is free, participants fund raise for charity in the lead up to the event.
You can do your part by registering for an event near you. In the spirit of using the local to change the global, the charity partners are regionally specific. Often smaller, community driven projects.
To ensure the maximum benefit goes to those who need it most – Yoga Aid has developed an online fund-raising vehicle on their website, which is easy to use, secure, and ensures 100% of donations go straight to charity. All expenses are supported privately: Yoga Aid takes no deductions from any donations for the running of the organisation or events.
For anyone looking to expand their knowledge of yoga or try out some different yoga styles – you must check out the Yoga Australia Teachers’ Conference 2012.
The conference is being held at the Novotel Sydney Manly Pacific in Sydney on 28-29 April 2012.
The theme ‘Unity in Diversity’ has been set to celebrate our uniqueness while acknowledging the essential message of oneness and unity that is yoga.
Leading Keynote speakers, master-classes, teaching specialisation, and workshops on philosophy, practices, teaching skills and the latest science will form the foundation of the weekend conference. In keeping with the meaning of “yoga” – this event brings together a smorgasbord of different styles and traditions.
The article stated that “This is the first study to show that only a little over an hour of meditation training can dramatically reduce both the experience of pain and pain-related brain activation … We found a big effect – about a 40 per cent reduction in pain intensity and a 57 per cent reduction in pain unpleasantness. Meditation produced a greater reduction in pain than even morphine or other pain-relieving drugs, which typically reduce pain ratings by about 25 per cent.”
