Re-Set One

    In my head, there are 2 buttons in life. The Re-Set Button and the F**k
    it Button. Life is a dance, flirting and drifting towards the F**k it
    and sometimes, body slamming full force into it. That is just how we
    roll as humans. This directly leads back to our magic friend, Mr.
    Re-set. The one we call upon when we need a little game changer to
    smooth out the pattern and bring us back so we can start again,
    re-freshed and re-surrected in the after math. But how do we re-align,
    re-depict our journey, and find new ways to keep us on our path?

    Well, it just so happens, that Ibiza is one of the places on earth where I
    find this hardest! So why do I live here, as a yoga teacher? You may well
    ask! However, like anything that presents a huge challenge, it is
    strangely addictive. This little see-saw game pretty much describes island
    life on Ibiza. I set up JoGa Beats, a music led vinyasa flow class and my
    Ibiza yoga retreats two years ago and I so often get asked what it is like
    working here, and living the “alternative” lifestyle of the island. The
    answer? It is a little like walking a yogi tightrope, hence the name of
    this project was born, Re-set. Without the Re-set button and being able to
    find a way to let go of what has just happened and move on from it, life
    here would be almost impossible. Ibiza life can be turbulent and like any
    experienced pilot you’re going to hit that turbulence frequently, but the
    more you come to expect it, really feel it out and navigate it, with new
    knowledge each time it kicks in, the better you get at remaining (mildly!)
    in control of it or at least being able to land and stay grounded in the
    aftermath. Wobbling, toppling off, re-mounting, re-exploring and
    re-defining your boundaries is a daily process and sometimes a continuous
    cycle of summertime Ibiza. But? As I re-surface and bounce back, I learn
    so much and I know I find new ways to ear mark what I do want and ways to
    tackle and steer clear of what I do not. This is not just about parties,
    but all manner of complications that arise when you least expect them in
    Ibiza and plunge you full force into an unexpected metamorphosis on a
    daily basis. Life is never dull on this island that is for sure. The
    people I meet, the way of life never ceases to surprise me. When I think I
    am un-shockable something else always pops up and that is what keeps me on
    my toes in class and beyond. In fact, no matter how unseated, I always
    return even more determined to make it work here, to learn the lessons I
    often feel I am here to work on and share and this is why Re-Set feels
    like the project to do exactly that in a weekly radio show with guests who
    have done that in their life, struggled, fought, but made it and excelled
    themselves in their chosen fields. There are so many of these incredible
    stories on this beautiful island and that is what makes it such an
    interesting place to be!


    The fact of the matter is, the “path” is a steadfast, stubborn, rocky old
    road with twists, turns, hairpin bends, cross roads, blind corners, one
    way streets and all manner of stop and start signs, pink rocks, left at
    the fig trees, right on the dirt road tracks, up the camino, which just
    keeps us expecting the unexpected. In a nutshell it is what makes you get
    up each day, with that sensation in the pit of your belly telling you
    today is going to be yet another roller coaster. There is no “typical” day
    in Ibiza summertime for me and the people I get called out to teach, which
    includes Hen parties, 50th birthdays, privates for Hollywood actresses,
    the rich, the famous, the just home from DC10’s and in need of JoGa Come
    Down Queen class, the limber up for the dancefloor early morning session,
    yummy mummies, the island weekenders, yacht yoga – I have done it all in
    the past two years and loved every single minute! Plus, my favourites, my
    regular JoGa bunnies, the gorgeous creatures that come to class regularly
    and watch the chaos unfold each week amongst the “tourists” who swing by,
    often literally at Ibiza Rocks House At Pikes, with a wry smile on their
    face. The aim of Re-set is to deliver, every Monday morning when some may
    be in a mini start-of-week slump, a show which you can connect to, hear
    good news, good music and listen to some of the island favourite thinkers,
    dreamers from all walks of life, to help you get inspired and stay there.
    We will play music that lifts you up, have chat that makes you listen with
    no waffle or self indulgence, We are here to catapult you, full force into
    your highest essence of being, to turn you ON, Re-set you back to ground
    base, so you can start your day again, start your week again and find a
    footing, a foundation to move from that feels good! This week on the show
    we have Talvin Singh, telling us how he learned to play Tabla, one of
    India’s most impossible-to-master drums by starting out at grass roots
    level and also DFA label boss, James Murphy on how he stays focused to
    achieve his dreams and not be punted off his musical path. To finish the
    show we have our weekly feature, ‘Three Things’, where you tell us what
    you wish you had known then that you know now. This week is island
    stalwart, Billy O’Rafferty, a loveable rogue who has lived here for 25
