Space to breathe

I’ve recently returned from my annual jaunt around the west coast of Scotland, one of my most favourite places to visit, a place where I can find great peace, giving me a chance to re-calibrate and recharge. I love the energy of a wild natural landscape and you get it all on the west coast more…

Natural Balance

I had a fantastic time teaching my workshop on balance, last weekend. It proved to be a very popular and effective session, with great feedback, which is always welcome!

The gift of Dru Yoga

A life well lived

Golden Lake Village

Yoga at the Acanthus Golf Centre

Continuing on our theme of silence, have you heard the story of Golden Lake Village? The people of Golden Lake Village were silent, they did not have the power of language. Life there was peaceful and contented, and as a community they were caring and loving. One day some travellers came to the village. The more…

The Power of Silence

At the beginning of the year I was on meditation retreat. This is an advanced practitioner course that I have been part of for many years, so I had a pretty good idea of what to expect, and was prepared for a period of silence. We had a bit of a laugh in some classes more…

Take time out to be poorly and heal

Surya (Sun) mudra

There are a lot of winter bugs around at the moment. I, myself, have been in quarantine here at Inside Out HQ, and know full well the misery of these flu germs! I also know how important it is to take time out, rest and keep away from others if you do come down with more…
