I’m sure a lot of us, and our friends and family have thought at some point “I want to start yoga”. It’s so often followed by “but I’m not sure…” The how, whats and whys get in the way! It’s really not daunting at all; all you have to do is commit to the time and turn up. It’s OK if you don’t feel “ready” for yoga – you’ll be… Read More »“But I’ve never done yoga!”
As you may know, since lockdown I’ve been cycling around more and discovering places I’ve never been to, or even knew that they existed. But one thing I’ve never experienced is being a cyclist in Cambridge, so we did it! Put our bikes in the car and off we went. It was great to see the place on different transportation, as usually for me it’s my legs or the car.… Read More »A traditional Cambridge experience
I’ll be hosting a free yin yoga session, on Monday 31st from 6-7pm on Zoom! I want to do this so more people can try it out and see what this type of yoga is about, and give back to the community. Thankyou so much for supporting me so far! Facebook event: https://m.facebook.com/events/327161021814341 Please remember you need to message me to get the details to join the meeting, and make… Read More »Free yoga session, 31st August!
One of the best things about lock down is that it’s made people stop and see other people, rather than rushing on by, including me! I’ve found that people passing will say hello and not think your weird for saying it, like we used to when I was growing up! People even want to stop and chat, and it just feels more pleasant somehow. Obviously not everyone, but I won’t… Read More »Time to talk
Back to work, and as things start to change (for better, for worse?) how does it feel for you? For me, it’s OK, but there’s a lot of adjusting. In the hair salon it’s ticking asking. I’m getting used to the adjustments but some bits still feel tough. I’ll get there. Yoga on Zoom is good. I’ve adjusted well to that, and again it’s great that we can meet in… Read More »How are you, really?
Recently we got out all of our camping gear, to take stock and see what needed a fix or replacement. Once the tent was set up in the garden I was desperate to go camping. I thought that I could just do that in the garden until everything opens again! Camping will be our cheap little getaway for the rest of the year; even if it’s just one night and… Read More »Camping!
I just love sitting in the sunshine with nothing to do. It does not matter where you are – you can just sit and be. Take time to ponder, stop, and process. Reminiscing to oneself about how far you have come, what you have done, what things you may like to do, and what you are yet to achieve. However, we often don’t allow ourselves to do this. We always… Read More »Nothing to do
Some days we can get into a yoga asana and some days we can’t. That’s all ok. Everyday is a different day. We will find some easy, and some hard. It depends on so many things; there’s no one reason. Just enjoy today’s practice for what your body needs. We all have these different days, it’s not just you. Just go with it and let your body flow free. It… Read More »Different days
I was thinking how I love that more and more men are doing yoga, and that we’re losing the stigma that it’s for grannies, hippies or that it’s so easy why should we bother?! I’ve never set up a male yoga class as I love the diversity, and I’m lucky that I do have men in my classes already! Maybe in lockdown everyone has had reflection time for themselves! I’m… Read More »Yoga for everyone
The very short version is they’ve been overtaken! Somehow I put them aside, and have moved on to handstand practice. It was a natural flow, rather than a conscious decision (or maybe I just ran out of variations so my body compensated!) Either way, I must get back to it. Saying that, I haven’t completely stopped – some of you know I have a feet up trainer for headstand, and… Read More »Update on headstand variations!
