Bring your holiday feeling home

Balance

I hope that you have all had good summers and managed to get some relaxing time off work. A holiday, either staying at home or going away, can be just the energy boost we need to see us through the busy-ness of Autumn and into the Festive season (sorry!). In my final Holiday themed blog more…

Computer misery and beyond!

The Archer

Hello! It’s been some time since my last post, largely because I’ve been having some rather troublesome computer problems. Still not sorted but I’ve managed to “persuade” someone to let me use their computer so I can blog again! My 4 month old laptop has had a major hardware failure, so it’s back with the more…

A good spring clean

Really enjoyed Saturday’s Spring Clean workshop, it’s been a while since I’ve run a Saturday afternoon session and judging by the response I got, 24 people attended, you’ve missed them as much as I have! We had a great afternoon, looking at holistic ways to keep mind, body and soul healthy as we move through more…

Balance is more than just physical balance!

Here’s a leading question – do you have good work / life balance? People often tell me that they’re so busy they don’t even know what work / life balance means, let alone achieve it, and yet I would argue that it is one of the most important keys to good health. In my last more…

Balance – use it or lose it!

“Use it or lose it” is a great saying and never more true than when we think about our ability to balance. Watch children playing, they are constantly challenging their balance reflex and considering the amount of risks they take kids actually fall (and injure themselves badly) very little. As we get older though we more…

There are many benefits to practicing balances, and we try to put some sort of balance in every class, though they can be a challenge. You probably find too, that sometimes your balance more…

Ouch! Cramp!

It’s the dead of night… one minute you’re sound asleep…the next you’re hopping around the bedroom in agony…you’ve got cramp…ouch…and you just know that for days now you’re going to feel that ache in your muscle and dare hardly move for fear it will cramp again! Sound familiar? Many of us suffer with cramp. It’s more…

Stay tip top this autumn

Well, we are definitely into Autumn now. The clocks have gone back, the leaves are falling, there’s a cool nip in the air and I’m back in thermals. According to Ayervedic wisdom Autumn is a dry, cool, erratic and windy season. This has an obvious affect on nature but you might have also noticed the “Air” element more…

Keep calm and breathe !

Next week is the start of Teaching Assessments for our outgoing group of Dru Yoga Trainee Teachers in Leeds – an exciting and nerve racking time for all ! Nerves and anxiety have also been points for discussion in classes too, so I thought in this blog I would share with you some yoga ideas more…

Are we human being or human doing?

Just being

It’s been a while since I last blogged. April was a busy month and this busy-ness has got me thinking! In and amongst all the busy-ness I was lucky enough to take 5 days away on a meditation retreat. I was at the beautifully nurturing Dru Yoga training centre in Snowdonia and, whilst I was there partly more…
