What makes Tara Bliss so damn sexy is her conversation. Her chat is awesome (just read this interview and you will see what I mean!) but so is her soul mission.
Bliss is a coach, author and fellow Kundalini Yoga Teacher (with swagger) and is deeply passionate about guiding women to stretch beyond what is reasonable, or what feels possible.
Named a ‘self-help guru’ by ELLE magazine, her teachings have been featured in Cleo, The Sunday Mail, The Daily Love and Mind Body Green. So keep an eye out for this shining star! And read on for how she embodies ‘sexy’…
WHAT DOES ‘SEXY’ MEAN TO YOU?
Being aware of the density of your body and revelling in it, while simultaneously knowing that baby, you’re all spirit and delicious Soul.
I once read that Mama Gena defines flirting as ‘enjoying your own company in the presence of others’… Man that’s good!
Sexy is honesty, vulnerability, eye contact, full-on expression.
And lately, to me, sobriety is sexy. Staying in the face of fear is sexy. Self-acceptance and adoration – sexy.
WHEN DO YOU FEEL MOST SEXY?
Let me set the scene.
Freshly shaved legs, thinly coated in coconut oil. Clean, dry hair swept up in a lose pony tail.
Sitting opposite my man, on our little deck, a flicker of candle flame between us, sharing a meal that he so devotedly prepared for us.
I also feel all kinds of funky sexy when I’m scootin’ around the house in bra and knickers and listening to Banks or One More by Elliphant and MO. That song marinades me in nostalgia of my Party Girl days.
WHAT ARE SOME RITUALS YOU PRACTICE THAT MAKE YOU FEEL DAMN SEXY?
For me, practicing ‘sexiness’ is about practicing ‘femininity’ in any form, at least at this stage of my exploration with the woman in me.
Any time I feel like a woman (note: not a girl) I feel sexy; wholesome; juiced.
That usually involves a process of consciously slowing down, of breathing deeper, of changing the music I listen to. It changes the way I practice yoga, how I eat… everything.
Receiving is a ritual too. Receiving a complement from my man, or an embrace (or any other thing for that matter). When I fully receive the grace – no matter how saucy – that’s thrown my way, naturally I’m going to feel more sexy.
YOUR FAV SEXY TUNE?
Can I choose a couple?
Inside my love by Delilah.
Goddess by Banks.
Clair de Lune by Flight Facilities.
WHAT ARE SOME THINGS A MAN (OR WOMAN) DOES THAT MAKE YOU FEEL SEXY?
It’s all about the way Glen looks at me. His eyes turn piercingly primal sometimes and it sends me insane! The way his eyes examine my body often makes me want to run and hide I’m that turned on. But it’s also the little things: the unexpected reach for me while he’s driving, the way he’ll squeeze me a little tighter as I move to rise in the morning, keeping me right there in his arms.
Those unspoken moments of: ‘Hey, I fucking love you, and I don’t have to tell you that, but damn, I’m going to show you.’ *Sigh* Be still, my melting heart.
WHAT IS YOUR BODY LANGUAGE WHEN YOU FEEL SEXY IN YOUR SKIN?
There’s nothing superfluous to me when I’m in that state. I’m not filling up silence with meaningless words. I’m not trying to fill up my time or day with things and tasks. It’s as though I really anchor down into what’s present for me and feast on it.
IF YOU COULD HAVE DINNER WITH THE SEXIEST PERSON ON EATH, WHO WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
So dreadfully cliché, but honestly, I wouldn’t go past having dinner with my man. He is my dream come true.
Not only is he wonderful to perve at from across the table, but he’s a chef for God’s sake, and puts artful, balanced and delish meals in front of me that are better than most I’ve eaten at the best restaurants.
He is the one I want to be seated with at that sacred time of day until the end of days.
THREE OF THE SEXIEST SOUNDING WORDS?
THREE SEXY FOODS TO EAT?
Dark chocolate covered almonds.
The mastery that goes into the preparation of Japanese food is pretty damn sexy too.
CREATE + INVENT A SEXY SUPERHERO. WHAT WOULD HER NAME BE? HOW WOULD SHE DRESS? WHAT ARE HER POWERS?
Miss Bliss. (Can’t help myself)
She’s dressed like Pocahontas, but draped in white, and drusey, clustered crystals hang from her neck, her wrists, around her ankles. She has wavy blonde locks that float to her hips and her eyes can’t decide whether they’re bluest of blues or the greenest of greens. Beams of light stream out of her heart and into the field of anyone with a heart chakra that’s hungry for meaning. She’s a real-life lighthouse who awakens the inner rebel – the seeker – in women all over the world.
WHAT COULD YOU DO MORE OF TO TAP INTO YOUR SEXY SIDE?
I could dance more. I could show a little more skin (because why not?). I could wear my hair down more (I’m a pony-tail doting athlete from way back).
WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU MISS BLISS?
Well, my head is still spinning a little from the November launch of my book, High: A Party Girl’s Guide to Peace.
I’m touring Australia with a kick ass workshop as we speak, called: So, You Wanna Be An Author? where I’m teaching my students how to write the book that’s inside of them.
I’m also currently:
- Completing my Kundalini yoga training
- Creating a 28-day eCourse on making a spiritual practice stick
- Integrating the plant magic of doTERRA essential oils into my business
- Glen and I are launching his business, Let Us Feed You Organics (an organic home delivery meal gig)
It’s a full-of-possibility time and I’m terribly grateful.
