‘Sadhana’ simply means spiritual daily practice.
 
I have always felt resistance to having a daily practice of anything. In fact, I used to take pleasure in how un-routine my life was. Mundanity, ritual and monotony were the enemy; no day was ever the same and I loved it that way.
 
*Rebel Fist Pump*
 
I thrived on uncertainty, diversity and variety – it is what got me through the days when I worked in a salesy corporate job in an life-less office environment I despised (i.e. ‘hmmm which route should I run to work today?’, ‘I wonder who will I shag tonight?’, ‘coffee, tea or vodka?’).
 
A daily practice of yoga, meditation or anything worthwhile annoyed me. Besides if I wanted to practice it I wanted it sporadically and if it wasn’t spontaneous, it was routine, which was so…blah.
[Note this is before I discovered Kundalini Yoga. I often talk about my life in terms of ‘before KY’ and ‘after KY’, kind of like BC and AC].
 
Since my extended play-time dancing with my shadow self during my singledom days (her name is ‘Roxy’), I realised that this resistance is in fact the reason WHY I SHOULD have a daily practice, whereit be yoga, meditation, prayer, affirmations, gratitude or self pleasuring.
More on that soon…

Guest post by Ares Chaplin Anyone who classifies themselves as a 'sex geek', has ever watched porn, or who has a genuine interest in sex, is most probably familiar with the recent ‘explosion’ of female ejaculation or ‘squirting’ videos ‘flooding’ the internet. If you are like most people, including me, and you have ever seen one of these videos online, you probably thought the girls were just peeing and in some cases you may have been right. Not withstanding, the phenomenon of female ejaculation is indeed very real and I know this because; not only is there lots of very real and valid science behind it, I also have had personal experiences with it… as has my partner, and many of our amazing friends.

I met Susana Frioni back in 2013 when I was in a less-than-healthy space. At the time I was in an office job I resented, I was still binge drinking myself to an oblivion on the weekends as a coping mechanism, smoking cigarettes regularly to 'calm' myself, and in a secret relationship with a man who was completely...unavailable. I was unhappily single and lost, but still extremely determined to pull myself out of this mess. *Having experienced all this personally makes me such a damn good coach because I have been there, done that. And I GET IT.*
