5 Yoga Tips for New Year & New You

December 31, 2019

I wish everyone a tranquil, healthy and happy New Year.

Classes will be taking place throughout January in the lovely warm and peaceful Chapel Court.

Here are a few tips for the New Year & New You.

  1. Respect your body’s inner wisdom and limitations. Don’t push yourself to do anything that feels dangerous or wrong for you. In yoga you need strength as well as flexibility to keep the joints stable. Practice ‘Ahimsa’,  not harming your precious body.
  2. Detoxification of the body is one of the benefits of a consistent yoga practice. It releases stress and toxins stored from deep within. Asanas that twist the body are great for this.
  3. Strengthen your immune system with inverted poses like Downward Dog. Inversions move immune strengthening cells through the lymphatic system.
  4. Spending just a few minutes doing a little breathing practice or meditation can sharpen your mind and enable you to make sharp decisions.
  5. Sleep is essential to overall well-being and health. When you sleep better you have more energy to be active. Insight Timer a free app has lots of relaxations and Yoga Nidra to help get a good nights sleep.

Happy New Year

To help inspire your yoga I have detailed below a few tips from

  1. Put the emphasis on your internal experience rather than your outer performance.
  2. Learn to experience the sensation of movement, down to the tiniest micro movement.
  3. Always try to find your “edge” — the place where your body feels challenged, but not overwhelmed. When you achieve this, keep an open, accepting state of mind.  Give yourself permission to rest when you’re tired.
  4. Combine your yoga with positive self-talk. Appreciate your efforts and praise your inner goodness.
  5. Recognize that you are not only working on your body, but are also working to develop qualities like patience, discipline, wisdom, kindness and gratitude.  Realize your efforts are not just inspiring you, but also inspiring others as you become more attuned to who you are, inside and out.

5 Tips to Stay Happy & Balanced during Autumn

August 22, 2018

Yoga classes are resuming on 3rd September and details can be found on the “Classes” page.

This is a time when we may feel a little less centred and a little sad that summer is coming to an end. It is a time when our energy levels and activity are increasing in preparation for the colder months. You are not on your own if you are feeling a little scattered or rushed as the winds of change flow.

Below are 5 tips to help you stay happy & balanced during the transition to Autumn.

  1.  Pace yourself and take time to stop and tune into your body and mind. Yoga helps recharge your batteries and enables you to tackle tasks more efficiently. This is a natural time for reflection and restoration.
  2. Try to ensure that there is structure to your day. An erratic schedule can lead to an erratic mind and behavior.
  3. Work on mindful movements, one pose at a time. Focus on developing your awareness of a poses with steadiness and balance.
  4. Focus on the breath by practicing seated poses that allow the breath to flow freely around the abdomen and pelvic floor. Melt into the pose, letting go of stress or anything that no longer serves you, just as the trees let go of their leaves.
  5. Stay grounded and find stillness in silence. This is especially helpful in balancing the fast moving mind. This is an amazing time to establish a meditation practice. Maybe try using the free app “Insight Timer” which contains numerous guided meditations.

Summer Yoga

April 2, 2018

The body can become tight during the cold months of winter. When the weather becomes warmer, the heat penetrates our muscles. This loosens up the body and provides an opportunity for the body to flow softly into poses. This is an ideal time to obtain deeper flexibility.
