Open up to creativity

Balance

Is there a more creative time of year than spring? Take a walk outside to see what I mean. There’s new life, vibrant colours, optomistic bird song and evidence of divine creativity everywhere you look. The longer days and milder weather, help us too, shake off the jaded heaviness of spring, encouraging us to leap forwards 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!

Bring strength and stability into your life

In the 3rd of my blogs about balance, I thought I would look at the importance of muscles to help us stay upright.  Posture is a great reflection of how we balance. In our classes we spend time, every lesson, getting you stand correctly, in Tadasana (the mountain pose). We guide you through your body, 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…

Balancing acts

Balancing postures are one of my favourite groups of yoga postures to practice and I know many of you love them too. 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…
