How BLISS! Works

BLISS! Magazine

Available online and in print, our BLISS! Magazine is published twice yearly as a “best of” compilation of the articles written on our blog.

The BLISS! Blog

You’re currently here…our aim is to make the BLISS! blog one of the most inspiring and authoritive resources on the web for the next generation of yogis.

Why BLISS! is So Awesome


As you may have noticed the majority of modern yoga journals, magazines and digital publications are full of all sorts of confusion and undue dilution regarding the authentic yoga tradition.  It is our humble aim to offer the general public something more true to the spirit of classical yoga, while still meeting the modern student where ever they may be on their spiritual journey.

To achieve this BLISS! has a few central hubs of in-depth wisdom, each grouped into beginner, intermediate and advanced lessons…

Living Your Yoga

Practical guidance on spiritual practices (sadhana) and easy to implement tips on asana, meditation &  lifestyle.  The main keynote here is “practical.”  Everything is centered around how you can immediately benefit from our guidance once you implement the techniques and methods we share. In addition, this is the home of all the inspirational story people share with us about how yoga and meditation has deeply transformed their lives.


Heart Advice

This section is focused on the how to live in a state of unity.  It includes life lessons that teach you “how to live in the world” and encompasses spiritual teachings that emphasize the cultivation of the higher human virtues and how to apply them to your relationships, work, family life, communities, the environment and yourself.


Deeper Dimensions of Yoga

Intermediate to advanced teachings on yogic philosophy, subtle energy, esoteric principles and the spiritual aspects of yoga beyond asana.  This section is for those wanting to learn more about chakras, meditation, yogic models of spiritual evolution and liberation.


Science & Spirituality

Heavily researched and in-depth information about the latest scientific breakthroughs into spiritual principles.  The main aim is to highlight how science is validating the insights of ancient yogic tradition.  The research will draw heavily from the most progressive domains of modern science and highlight the findings of astro-physics (the study of space) , quantum physics (the study of atoms and sub-atomic particles) and neuroscience (the study of the nervous system & brain).


Awesome Ayurveda

A lighter category that emphasizes easy to apply tips and recipes that enhance health and give yogis insight into the practical application of Ayurveda.  This section will be used to introduce many yet unknown ayurvedic super-foods to the west, as well as highlight the healing properties of ayurvedic herbs.  We will also include many yummy sattvic recipes in this section and natural remedies.


Best of Bali

The magical island of Bali is our home and here we will share key guidance for how our yoga retreat, YTT and meditation students can make the most out of their time while travelling through Bali.  Bali is one of the world’s last remaining spiritual cultures and a tropical oasis for those looking to immerse themselves into yoga and meditation.


Secret Teachings

Esoteric principles, for a more advanced audience.  Lily and Ramananda will primarily write articles for this section, which will feature some rare gems of yogic wisdom.


Vedic Astrology For Yogis

An introduction to vedic astrological principles that can benefit yogis in their sadhana.  The main emphasis will be upon the effect of the sun and the moon upon the human nervous system, breathing patterns and psychological states, as well as yogic techniques that transmute these subtle energies.
