The process and journey of yoga is not always easy though, and it always helps to have someone to walk the path with.
That’s where The Yoga Lunchbox comes in – here you will help you find support for your journey, wherever you might be along the path – shiny, fresh, novice student, or decades-long, dedicated practitioner.
We at The Yoga Lunchbox believe that:
- Yoga transforms lives by healing mind, body and spirit.
- Yoga isn’t just something that we do, yoga is the quality of presence that we bring to everything we do.
- Yoga has the power to transform our society from the inside out.
- The best articles are those written by yoga practitioners about their real-life experiences of learning on and off the yoga mat.
The Yoga Lunchbox is here to:
- Reassure us that whatever we encounter along the path of yoga is all part of the process.
- Encourage us to try more than just asana, and to try more than just going to class.
- And it’s here to celebrate the joyful aspects of making yoga a part of your daily life.
In our 1000+ articles you’ll find loads of ideas and suggestions on how to practice that promote, and advocate those very things.
There is no doubt that somewhere on this site, there will be something you’re looking for about yoga. Just use the Search bar to find what you need.
About Editor: Lucinda Staniland
Lucinda Staniland is an editor, writer and dedicated yogi.
Lucinda has worked at The Yoga Lunchbox since 2012. She loves the opportunity to be constantly immersed in the world of yoga, and particularly in the vibrant NZ and Australian yoga communities.
Lucinda senses a deep and relevant connection between yoga and how we show up in the world. She loves all kinds of movement and body work, particularly when they take her out into the natural world. Lucinda has undertaken several lengthy cycle tours, and in 2016 she walked the length of New Zealand’s South Island on the Te Araroa trail.
She’s still learning what yoga is all about, but she hopes that her yoga practice will continue to lead her deeper into an intuitive understanding, and honouring, of her self, her body and her place in the world.
About Publisher: Kara-Leah Grant
Kara-Leah is an internationally-renowned teacher, writer and retreat leader. Millions of people have been impacted by the articles, books and videos she has published over the last ten years.
Her passion is liberation in this lifetime through an every day path of dissolving layers of the conditioned mind into deeper and deeper presence.
Her work, through her teaching, writing and retreats, focuses on using the process of inquiry to reveal conditioned mind and so help people to drop down into beingness and presence.
Her practical and potent book Forty Days of Yoga, which draws heavily on her own experiences, has helped thousands of people establish a regular home yoga practice. She is also the author of The No-More-Excuses Guide to Yoga.
Daily yoga practice has been the anchor of Kara-Leah’s life for more than a decade now and her deep and varied practice has taught her into how to practically apply the tools of yoga to our daily lives on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level.
As a result, the way she teaches ‘yoga’ has evolved past asana classes and into her retreats, presentations, seminars and workshops. No matter how she’s delivering what she does, Kara-Leah’s passion is helping people wake up to their potential as unlimited beings.
Her passion now is working with people on retreat, and individually, to move past the conditioning of their mind and deep into their true nature as presence.

History of The Yoga Lunchbox
The Yoga Lunchbox was founded in October 2008 by Kara-Leah Grant after she attended her first Prana Flow Teacher Training Module with Twee Merrigan.
Inspired to blog about yoga, Kara-Leah called her website Prana Flow NZ.
By early 2010, Kara-Leah decided to rebrand as The Yoga Lunchbox to reflect the wider yoga community she was writing about. The website was no longer about one specific yoga style, but about Yoga itself.
Since then, the site has grown to over 1000 articles including Skype Video Interviews with many of the world’s leading yoga teachers including Cameron Shayne, Shiva Rea, Tiffany Cruikshank, Mark Whitwell, Duncan Peak, Ana Forrest and J. Brown.
In 2017, Lucinda Staniland was promoted to Editor, and Kara-Leah took a step back from the day-to-day running of the website, retaining her over-all vision as Publisher.
