Slow Living

Slow Living – this is my motto for this year. Since choosing to explore this theme it is amazing what I have found.  There are actually magazines on the subject and I love them. Check these out:  These are our vege pods and they work amazingly. As part of my intention to practice slow living I am growing herbs, tomatoes, spinach, lettuce and kale. So far so good as these keep out most of the bugs which I have found to be a problem trying to grow in the open ground. So there you are my first post for a

For Love of Yourself

For Love of Yourself This is the theme of our classes this term as we embrace the wintertime for going within and practicing some self loving. Whether you are in a yoga or meditation class this term, use this time to really be present and honour the time you are making for yourself.  See if you can let go of the labels, roles, tasks, demands that might be part of your life and come into the class with a sense of inner inquiry. I’ve been using this winter to reflect upon my own self care and realised that it is

Finding strength in letting go

The season of autumn is a time to surrender so this term we will be focusing on the wisdom of release, letting go and making space. The wisdom of release is letting go of “what was” so that “what could be” is free to unfold with ease and grace.  It is the season of transformation as you will notice nature reflects this to us with the falling leaves and coolness in the air. It is vital for us to stay grounded in this season of change so our postures will reflect this and allow us to release and transform gently.

The Seat of Compassion & wisdom of honouring your uniqueness in every posture you do.

This term in my classes we have been working on the beautiful sequence known as “The Seat of Compassion”.  It consists of a number of postures that we have spent time working with including, lotus chair, charity pose, crane and seat of compassion pose. It is really important to work with each individual component of a sequence and make sure that everyone is comfortable with how they can do that to suit themselves.  Then when you put the sequence together everyone can take part in a way that suits their unique way of being so they can get the most

Managing our emotions

I wanted to start the year talking about how to manage emotions as it feels to me like a lot of people are being affected by the global unrest. The energy of fear, fueled by all the negative media you readily find in our newspapers, news and shared by those who get high on spreading fear through gossip. I have been going back to basics with my personal yoga practice over the holidays and have to share with you the power of Energy Block Release sequences one and two, EBR 1 and EBR 2.  There are truly amazing, let me

Living in a high state of gratitude

This was the theme of our summer retreat which has just happened.  Here I would like to share, especially for those that were on the retreat but also to benefit anyone else who is reading this, some of the practices and research. We contemplated the statement;  Your brain takes its shape from what your mind rests upon. Knowing that where attention goes energy flows we took a few moments to ask the question, where has my mind been resting this week?  Perhaps you might like to write this question in your journal and see what spills out onto your page.

High vibrations for a year of manifesting your greatest dream

Happy New Year ! Did you know this year holds an energy that can fast track you along to realising you goals and dreams?  Well it does and to ensure that you get the best chance to do this I am encouraging you to write down your intentions for the next twelve months. It is one thing to have them in your head but quite another to put them in writing, better still if you can create a vision board or piece of artwork that represents your way forward and place this where you see it everyday. You might be
