Moving In – The Most Important Physical Relationship

Moving In – The Most Important Physical Relationship

To learn, at least in this physical plane, if something hurts, how does it want to be treated in order to heal? We know instinctively, intuitively what is good for us, the body is an accessible tool to help find answers within. Physical manifestations of pain have been said to start in the psyche, i.e. something […]

Flow Forwards..

Flow Forwards..

If water doesn’t flow it stagnates.  You can’t drink stagnant water, it becomes toxic.  Just like water, if we stand still we’ll stagnate.  Some of the hardest lessons can be to let go of the familiar. Letting go of stable jobs, ideals for how you saw yourself living, people, places, things..  By holding on to […]

Anxiety

Anxiety

This anxiety is gonna eat me up. Trying just to breath and make it stop. My intestines wrench and pain, This pain driving me closer to insane. All this pain from 1 primary source, my nerves frying from a mental discourse.. How to quell this anguish I’m just not sure… Challenges of self love always […]

Flow

Flow

There’s something I feel is repressing, Something trying to limit my expressing.. But in yoga my words can flow, like there’s no limits above or below; When I try to structure my sentence for basic instruction, That’s where I meet with my ugly obstruction..   I love to dance with the rhythm of each sound, Finding […]

Frazzled?

Frazzled?

  I’m being blessed with many sessions to instruct recently, from meditation through to strong Pilates classes, thus I see a lot of bodies and the majority of them seem to be more tired than I realised at this time of year!

We all need a little extra care sometimes..

We all need a little extra care sometimes..

How are you?  Really, not how are your problems but how are you feeling?  Consider this a rhetorical question; as the only person who can give us what we need is our self.  However, sometimes, when everything feels a bit overwhelming, it can help to have the objective input from another..

Do I do it for me, or for you?..

Do I do it for me, or for you?..

The conflict, or the reflection about doing what you need to do to fulfill yourself, whilst being conscious about the needs of others. The ultimate internal dilemma I (and maybe you) face regularly with regards to, ‘should’ I do this because I want to or ‘should’ I do that because it’s a nice thing to […]
