This is a poem I shared tonight with my yinsters, reminding us to slow down and rest.
REST IN EVERY STEP
The gap between
'Where I am'
'Where I want to be'
is full of possibility.
So don't rush through it.
Find the dignity in slowness.
Learn to love the gap.
Grace it with your presence.
It is bursting with life, and creativity,
and it holds unexpected treasures.
Have patience. Slow down.
Life is only Now.
In Presence, there are no gaps.
Find rest in every step.
Finally the reopening is on the horizon. I'm so excited and looking forward to being back in the beautiful, clean and warm studio, welcoming you back and seeing familiar and new faces alike.
The studio will reopen on the 17th of May with socially distanced classes of smaller numbers. For the first 5 weeks I will teach 1 hr long classes, except for the yin class on Thursday night, but I'm doubling up the number of classes per week to accommodate more of you lovely yogis. Once the social distancing is eased, I will go back to nice long 1,5 hr sessions.
I love how yin yoga gives us time to tune inside, be in the present moment and practice mindfulness of the body, breath, feeling and mind. Yoga isn’t about the poses we can get ourselves into, it’s about the quality of awareness.
I’m looking forward to teaching a mini serious of yin yoga classes on Friday night at 6 pm.

Has the past year left you feeling flat, exhausted, unenthusiastic, wired and tired? Do you suffer from adrenal fatigue and poor digestion? Or perhaps you’d like to unwind before the weekend and get a really good night’s sleep?
Join me through April on Friday night at 6pm for a deep rest. In yin yoga we place the body in poses which stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, activating the rest and digest response as well as stimulating energy pathways linked to our inner organs. It’s by no means the same as relaxing on the couch.
We will use lots of props to give ourselves the support we need. If you don’t have any, you can easily improvise with blankets, pillows, cushions and books.
£6 per class to drop in
Or use up your block booking
Message me if you’d like to join.
“Most of the things we need, to be most fully alive, never come in busyness. They grow in rest.”
