Filling the well….and wishing you all a merry Christmas

Relax and calm your way to sleep

 I know you were expecting a blog on yoga’s answer to anti-wrinkle cream, which, I promise will be the next one, but I really felt I wanted to blog today about staying healthy at this busy time, and there seems to be a lot of winter bugs to fight off at the moment. Winter is more…

Never regret your old age…

“Never regret your old age – it’s a privilege denied to many”, I’ve no idea who said these wise words but I do like them. I’ve been thinking a lot about old age recently and thought in my next series of blogs I’d share some yogic and not so yogic thoughts on the aging process, more…

Happy Holidays

Flexing the wrists

The school summer holidays are under way,  most of our classes have broken up for August (back again in September), and people are jetting off on holiday, so I thought I would theme the next couple of blogs on holistic ways to healthy, happy holidays.

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! We had a great afternoon, looking at holistic ways to keep mind, body and soul healthy as we move through more…
