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…

Spring is just around the corner…

Do we give ourselves the time we need to heal?

I’ve been full of cold this week – cue much sympathy! Now I like to take to my bed when I’m feeling poorly. I appreciate that I am lucky to be able to do this and appreciate that it is not always an option, which got me thinking about the nature of illness and rest and the pressure more…

And no, you can’t dress up a hot whisky toddy as medicinal! As we know, more…

In the deep mid-winter…

Winter is a time of rest and consolidation – recovering from the autumn harvest and preparing for the energetic burst into spring.

Benefit from some space in your life

Continuing my theme from last time, on making time for yourself, I thought I would look at some of the ways Dru Yoga can help us find space…and we probably need some space more than ever right now! I often have to remind myself of the benefits I experience if I put aside time just for more…

Making time for yourself is not selfish!

  We are rapidly approaching that silly, busy time of year again. Already my diary is starting to fill up (I am such a social butterfly!) and I notice that there isn’t a lot of space left. I don’t know about you, but I really appreciate some time all to myself. In fact, “me time” is so important more…
