Cool-Headed amidst CoronaVirus

Cool-Headed amidst CoronaVirus

Dear dears,during these uncertain times (a common phrase right now, I’m sure!), I would like to be barer of pragmatism in the hope to help those in my community to be able to stay in one’s centre and personal power.  To not succumb to fear and its effects on our health; mentally, physically, socially and […]

Spring equinox

Spring equinox

Spring equinox Equal time split between the night and the day, and being that it’s spring here in the NH, it’s also owing to the lessening of the cold and dark to make way for the sun’s growing journey which started back on December 21st with the solstice. It ought be warmer and lighter than […]

Conscious Christmas

Conscious Christmas, it’s not all about Consumerism, and no it’s not about religion too, well not for me. For me it goes back further than a couple of thousand years, billions of years actually.. Maybe it’s too late, maybe you already bought half the shops out of stock, or maybe you’ve been waiting for the […]

The Fact Is

The Fact Is

The Fact Is That we are fine, that I am fine, although sometimes it doesn’t feel as though I am That this too shall pass; the good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful, the happy and the sad It’s the waiting on reassurance from without which takes away one’s power of self and brings in doubt I […]

Autumn has come Early for Me this Year

Autumn has come Early for Me this Year

Autumn has come early for me this year, the summer fun has been overdone..  Yesterday I acknowledged a realisation about the disconnect between head, heart and gut. I recognise this isn’t a issue for some but also that there is a set of us whom find the art of living according to how we feel, that bit […]

Let’s talk Yoga, not Fashionista, Contortion, or Stretch Fads

Let’s talk Yoga, not Fashionista, Contortion, or Stretch Fads

This has been one of the hardest things I’ve written, yet.  I’ve spoken to students and other teachers about this many times and the generalisation of the issue I pose, generally, centres around individuals and groups whom from the outside, have a lot in common with I.  Thus, when criticising something which looks so close […]

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 […]

Pilates for Posture – Upper back and Shoulders

Pilates for Posture – Upper back and Shoulders

Sunday 13th March 12.00 – 14.30   Do you ever notice yourself or those around you with classic hunched shoulders and neck when checking ones phone or other electronic device?  Even when reading a paper book it seems that we don’t do enough to counter this forward curving position to help the body to find balance […]

When to go to yoga Vs. When not to go to yoga

When to go to yoga Vs. When not to go to yoga

Photo on left curtousy of Miguel Echiveria, Photo right taken by C Suzuki @Froguesthouse, Lima It comes up relatively frequently for me, as a hunch, intuition or sometimes a humanistic rash judgement, without knowing someone’s full situation first (one reason I wanted to write this, to encourage people to open a dialog more before session starts); thinking someone […]

Range Of Motion, Different for Everyone

Range Of Motion, Different for Everyone

All along our physical journey (regardless of yoga interactions) there are people who seem stronger, more flexible and all round more able. I see my ego be sparked by this still daily, but I’m not so much letting this influence me.  Yes, I still am on my own path of continuous development but no, I […]
