Planning therapeutic breaks. Planting seeds for spending time nurturing hobbies that support good health. Seeking out the company of others enjoying the same stuff in life, making ongoing baby steps towards that life worth fighting for.Read More
Radical implies ‘almost too much’. Extreme, pioneering, ground-breaking. The type of thing your more narrow-minded friends will condemn. But why not? Why not be a little extreme in the care you take of yourself. It doesn’t have to be indulgent in terms of money or huge chunks of time, it just has to be radical in terms of the importance you place on it. After all, if you are not prioritising your own journey into optimal health and joy, when who is?Read More
There’s a perception shared by many: meditation is boring, we hate it, it’s dull. Blank the mind? Impossible. Dwell in peace and stillness … yes that bit sounds lovely, but how?
The particular words used to describe something can have a huge impact on whether we ‘get it’ or not. They can immediately alienate or immediately resonate. Instead of asking you to meditate, how with it go for you if I asked you do the following?Read More
They say the world is full of two kinds of people. The people who do yoga and the people who think they are going to start a yoga practice soon. If you are the latter, fear not! I will talk you through that initial first experience so you can easily find yourself in the former group... the people who do yoga. Yogis. It’s easy to become one, all you have to do is do yoga. The definition of a yogi is someone who does yoga. Intent and commitment are all that’s required!Read More
Wishing you all a season of growth. If that growth comes from resting, rest deeply. If it comes from action, make your actions considered.

We tend to be healthy, happy people embracing life and up for it! You can expect outdoor adventures, exploration and discovery, raucous laughter, maybe even a spontaneous dance or an inappropriate yoga pose. Hang out with yoga people and it could get messy and fun.Read More
We’re never done. We’re never fully grown up. We’ll never shed all the layers from the past. We’re all in this together yogis. The good news is we’re well able. The great news is it’s well worth it.

It can take a bit of time and tuning-in to discover the best position to be in. As a child you did this instinctively; this is the way you used to move before bad postural habits and tension crept in. So in a way you are re-discovering. You are peeling back the layers of tension and stress that have made their imprint on your body for all those years and when you re-discover your own effortless state of optimal alignment it’s as familiar as reconnecting with an old friend.Read More
When you have settled into a pleasant, easy, rhythm, see if you can go a level deeper into your meditation practice by allowing the breath to start and the movement to follow a moment later. Breath first, movement follows right behind. It’s like you become a passive follower of your own, natural, relaxed, rhythm of breathing. This helps switch off your busy ‘thinking’ mind and allows you to dwell in your quieter ‘being’ mind.Read More
