Zen out….

Feeling overwhelmed…. like your struggling to stay afloat, stressed, distracted or unworthy?

Wanting to find some focus in a kind meaningful way. Just recognising, being aware having awareness is the key.

Start to gently and slowly breathe deeply, clearing the mind, resetting ourselves and calming the nervous system.

Having the attention to our breath allowing us to remind ourselves of the space we can create and the freedom in our hearts. just breathe…..

Clearing the space allows us to set our intentions from a strengthen heart authentically. Freeing ourselves from this anxiety of what was to the freedom of what will be…..

By trusting the process and just be. Sitting quietly and breathe. Bring your awareness back to your breath.

That’s mediating. Let’s do it together, explore together.

What’s yoga to you?

For its true essence of yoga for me is exploring the reason of my birth, discovering it then fulling it’s purpose.

Living by what we have explored, authentically and true to ourselves.

Yes we move our bodies for more body awareness. In turn, we have awareness of our breath to reset and calm the nervous system to allow us to clear the mind.

Having the ability just to sit, just to be …meditation. Gaining more clarity, in-sink with our purpose with more fulfilment.

What is yoga to you? Explore it with me and then know what it is for you….

A new class..?

A new class with some differences could appear on the timetable in the new year, so do watch this space..!

What is it?! Shall I let you in to a little secret or not?

Well it will definitely be a small class, and it will remain like even when the covid rules are gone. It’s likely to be weekly on a Tuesday evening at 6.30pm.

And I’m really hoping it will stay and be popular enough to keep it in the timetable!

I’ll let you know about it very soon…

Headstand workshop

Due to the second lockdown, the foundations of headstand workshop was postponed from November to yesterday, but we finally did it, only losing a few people who couldn’t make the new date!

It wasn’t a large group, because I wanted to be able to get around and help each and every person there. Everyone started at different levels, yet all achieved more than they thought they would. It was so nice to witness and help this!

We are all on our self journey and we have our own limits on how and where we feel we are at, which is ok. It’s great getting to share someone’s sense of self achievement, becoming part of their journey.

And if you missed out yesterday, the great news is there’s another one arranged for February!

You do not need to have done a headstand before to participate, I will walk you through step by step to help you reach a place that’s right for you.

Remember you will be able to do it and even if you think you cannot, you can (the group thought this too!).

Come along on Sunday 7th February and see for yourself!

Join us and learn, play and practice just for fun!

Mid-way through lockdown 2.0

I have to say, this time round I’ve felt very exhausted. I’ve taken time out to just rest.
The first two days I literally stayed in bed.

Then as the time has gone on, I’ve started to potter around getting jobs done. They need to be done, but I’ve been taking my time doing them without pressuring myself to finish them immediately.

Little by little and day by day has been the key for me.

To me it’s self care; to restore and reset myself again.

Am I looking forward to get back into it all?
Half and half I’d say. Yes I do; I miss everyone and the studio, but no I don’t; I can’t burn myself out again.

Like in the first lockdown, I learned to get out of the rat race, but it’s so easy to get involved again, especially with the uncertainty of whether this will happen again.

Self restore, self care, self love to you all.

Yoga at Home update

The 7 day challenge has been a slight challenge for me too!

The idea first came from Vicky at our last gong bath, saying we should collaborate and do a yoga and gong bath challenge. We knew it would be a lot of work, but sadly we didn’t get any interest. (I think we both were slightly exhausted too, so it was probably for the best.)

So I then decided to do a 7 day yoga challenge live on Facebook within a private group. I have to say I tried, with the support of my lovely yogi friends, but it was not meant to be. I just couldn’t get live videos going!

I wasn’t going to be defeated, so I then decided I was going to pre record every day to post.

So why did I decide to start this group? To make it accessible for people who have not tried yoga, or want to get back to it, yes, but really to help people reset themselves in a time like now.

Giving back to the community, whatever you want to take from this group.

Enjoy, keep practicing and keep calm!

We’re midway through the challenge, but the previous videos are still up – please message me to join!
