I’ve been practising yoga for around 14 years, and teaching for about 3 and half years now, but no matter how advanced or adept we consider ourselves, we never stop being students; there is so, so much to learn, and yoga delights in teaching us something new every time we come to the mat. My… Read More Lesson Learnt?
October 2016 So, a quick bit of background on where and why this journey begins. I have a sore knee. Not just a little bit sore, I mean really sore – like I can’t get up and down stairs some days sore. I first noticed it a year or so ago, and went to see… Read More Yogi Heal Thyself: Why?
As usual, I open with a comment about how I can’t believe how fast time has passed! I meant to write a little update on the August re-treat half day straight after teaching it, and here we are a month later! When I planned the August half day, I really wasn’t sure about the timing. … Read More We Become One – August Re-Treat
What could be better than combining my two favourite things – wine and yoga?! I was delighted to be invited to teach at Brynne Vineyard’s first ‘Yoga at the Vineyard’ event on 13 August. The vineyard can be found at Brixworth, Northamptonshire, very close to Pitsford Water. It is a very peaceful, tranquil place, and… Read More Wine, Body and Soul – Yoga at the Vineyard
Well, I’m not sure where the last few months went; last time I looked it was April and we were eagerly awaiting Spring. All of a sudden we are mid August! Lots of fun, exciting things happen in Summer, with warmer weather and lighter, longer evenings – parties and BBQs, impromptu gatherings with friends, Weddings… Read More Summer Lovin’ – Happened So Fast!
It looked a lot like Spring might be here today – beautiful sunshine, less of a chill in the air (dare I say even a little bit warm!) and a splash of colour in my garden from the Spring bulbs. As we transition from Winter to Spring, it’s worth considering what feels different inside. Do… Read More Spring – is that you?
As the calendar finally flips over to show February, we can put the pressure of those new year’s resolutions behind us! I always find January a long and tough month, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. The days are so dark, everyone is desperately trying to stick to a plan to dramatically change… Read More February: Time to set your intention!
Namaste! As always, I find it unbelievable that another month has passed so quickly, and in fact, here we are on Christmas Eve! In the last blog, I was preparing to deliver a relaxing and restoring workshop to prepare us for the rushing around that was about to begin; this was my November challenge. Thanks… Read More Love and Light
As I sit down to write this, I can hardly believe that November is already here; firstly because – hey – what happened to October? Secondly, because it’s such a glorious morning that it seems impossible that we are speeding towards the winter. Winter of course brings its own unique beauty, but more of that… Read More Revisit, Revise and Reflect
This weekend I was sitting in the garden, enjoying a warm-ish afternoon, glancing through my newly arrived Autumn issue of Spectrum (BWY magazine). Ooh, Autumn, I think, surely not? But yes, it’s true, next week October arrives. I can hear the squirrels chattering and chasing each other and my attention is drawn to the glorious Horse… Read More Autumn and new beginnings
