Restorative bedtime yoga

I was recently asked a great question by an innovative mattress design company, Casper (check out https://caspersleep.com/mattresses for some interesting stuff on getting a good night’s sleep) and thought it might make a fun blog! ….. So the question they asked was…. “What yoga moves can I do from my bed?” I liked this question, more…

Bridge posture

Hopefully part 1 of my healthy holiday blog series has seen you arrive at your destination cool, calm and collected, like those pictures of Hollywood film stars breezing through the arrivals lounge ! So let’s move on to staying on top form during your holiday, starting with jet lag and those general grotty feelings we can 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. Most holidays start with a long journey, and even if the actual travel 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…

Is it time to look for an alternative way to take care of our health?

Bridge posture

There was an article in Sunday’s Observer (June 1st 2014) that piqued my interest, “How antibiotics are making the world ill” – it was an extract from scientist Martin Blaser’s new book “Missing Microbes”. In the article Martin Blaser explains why he thinks the world is` suffering from a whole raft of modern ailments, in more…

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…

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…

Are you in the right side of your brain?

Here’s a little something for you to try …. close off 1 of your nostrils with your thumb and see how easy it is to breathe through the other, now swap sides, do you find 1 of your nostrils is more dominant, easier to breathe through? Try it again in 2 hours and unless there’s more…

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…
