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…

Balanced hormones?

Ever feel that your body is working against you?! You try your best to maintain your equilibrium, but sometimes you just lose your cool for no reason!? I’m going to guess that we can all answer yes to this and often we blame our hormones, and actually that often is the truth of it. In 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…

We want to help you sparkle!

The Archer

Happy New Year! For my first post of the year I want to celebrate that wonderful feeling that comes with the new year…a fresh start, a clean slate; like starting a new school exercise book, full of promise and hope.   It’s the time of year for reflection and letting go of the past (see more…

Wishing you a very merry and healthy Christmas

For my final blog of the year, I thought I would leave you with my festive season survival kit – yoga focussed on keeping you healthy this Christmas. If you’ve been at classes the last couple of weeks you will be familiar with the practises, so I hope this will just remind you of some more…

So it felt timely to share with you some of the yoga we’ll be practicing in our weekly classes during this transitional season.

Be inspired to be still

Just being

One of my favourite pictures in our Inside Out “Yoga on your holidays” competition (see our Facebook page “insideoutdruyoga” for more details) was this photo of 3 ladies sat meditating on a rock in the Yorkshire Dales. I love it not just because it is aesthetically pleasing, but because, for me, it encapsulates the very more…

Moving into stillness

Just being

In my last post, I talked a little bit about meditation and I hope you’ve had the opportunity to experience just being. One of the key elements of meditation is stillness. Often easier said than done! However, if you can work on bringing stillness into the physical body then the mind will follow. Whenever there’s 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…

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…
