Waiting lists and cancelling classes

As the classes are growing in popularity (and I start new classes!) I just wanted to share a little about the booking process and how important it is to keep me up to date!

All bookings are done online, and once confirmed, the spot is yours. There are waiting lists for classes which are fully booked.

If you develop any symptoms or can no longer make it, you must let me know at least 24 hours before the class is due to start. My number will be supplied on the confirmation email, so you can call, text or leave me a message.

If you do not cancel in time, you will still be charged for the class. This is because I have a waiting list of people ready to take, and pay for, the slot!

When coming to class, please remember to only bring essentials, and don’t forget your mat!


Why Liforme yoga mats?

Over the years I’ve used quite a few types and brands of mat – in various studios as well as my own personal ones.

I know that at £100 the Liforme mats seem expensive, but they are so worth it.

They give the perfect amount of grip so you’re not slipping whilst you’re moving in your asana practice, and if you want to, you can use the marking on the mat for hand and foot placements (bearing in mind this won’t be perfect as we’re all different shapes and sizes!)

The Liforme mats are PVC-free, biodegradable and made using the highest quality materials.

Many colours and designs available – please message to order!

I am stocking them to sell in studio. If I don’t have a colour you want let me know and I’ll order one in for you. (Pricing varies by design)


Headstand workshop – 22/11

In November I’ll be holding a workshop to explore the foundation of a headstand. It will be fun exploring the foundation to be able to get lift and learning how to stabilise – no fear or pressure!

And then you can decide how far you want to go; whether you just want to lift up in to headstand or not, against the wall or not..! Even if you’ve never tried before and just want to have a go, that’s OK! Everyone is welcome.

This will be a small group, so please let me know soon if you want to join. Payment will secure your place – just £10!

See you Sunday 22nd November at 10.30am!


Non-virtual workshops!

We finally got to do our first workshop event of a Yin yoga and gong bath since lockdown!

Vicky and I were super excited to do this, and yet again it was a lovely collective energy. Luckily the pandemic hadn’t changed that, even though the group was much smaller to fit in with the guidelines.

One downside to the guidelines was that it sold out very quickly, as numbers were very restricted. Everyone wanted to be there – they know how much these sorts of events are needed for our wellbeing. I think we all need a bit of this right now!

So our next one is booked for November, but it’s over half full already. If you want to see if there’s space left, please do get in touch!

Hope to see you there, and if not we will have one for the winter solstice as usual (all being well!)


Want to come to class?

It’s so lovely that people are reaching out to restart (or start!) yoga.

The main thing to note is that there is limited space, and booking must be done online in advance. There is a waiting list, so please do cancel your spot as far as possible in advance if you know you can’t make it.

Please don’t be put off by this though! I would absolutely love you to join us.

All abilities are welcome – it’s a mixed class now as most of the yogis have been with me for a while, but beginners are very welcome!

I will cater for you as much as I can and I hope to see you soon.

If you would like more information about any aspect of yoga or my classes, please get in touch!


Little traditions

It’s funny how the only thing I’ve ever really kept up with was having my toe nails painted (for the past 25 years!)

I stopped painting them myself years ago,
and I also got rid of all my nail polishes. It was sort of the only thing in my life that I kept that had a bit of toxicity on the body.

Then lockdown happened, and once they were off I thought “oh my god, what am I going to do?”. I decided I was going to try au naturel.

If I’m totally honest, I didn’t like it! Well, not exactly, but it took a lot of getting used to and it was so strange to see my feet with no colour!

Even now one day I’ll look at them, and think “yes, I can live with that”, but the next day it’s “no I really can’t!”

I still haven’t had them painted, and still haven’t purchased any polish. You’re probably wondering why haven’t done them myself. The truth is I’m not good at painting nails, and I would get frustrated if I did get them right!

How vain am I?

I know. Lots. But even more once you hear this…
As I was preparing to go back to in person teaching at the studio, my immediate though was that my feet would be on show, and I needed to get my toenails painted!

However, I’ve held off. I’ve done a few classes now, and I’m going with it to see how it is for me!

Do you have any before and after lockdown changes?
