SUMMER Newsletter

Hello my Glow Beams...


I hope you have all had a wonderful month of May. I don't know where the time has gone but I never got around to a newsletter last month! Life simply gets in the way sometimes... so here it is your Yoga & Wellness news for SUMMER. To include our Summer Yoga Class Schedule, upcoming events, retreat days and news for anyone attending our wonderful September Yoga Retreat. The new term of yoga classes starts back next week from the 10th June (except for Restorative, starting back on the 20th June).

This term we are delving into the fascinating subtle body of THE CHAKRAS, YEEEEESSSS... as it's among my favourite exploration in yoga. Using our yoga practice to awaken the chakras, creating a sense of conscious awareness. 🧘‍♂️🧘‍♀️ We will move through an energetic balanced practice exploring the subtle body of the chakras, rising from our root "Muladhara" our present psychic condition to our crown "Sahasrara" the overall condition of our life with an awakening of a blissful state, with the intention of being able to carry this with you in the world off your yoga mat and GLOW.

As a yoga teacher, I forever remain a yoga student too. My learning never stops. This month, I am grateful to be attending a five-day yoga intensive with my yogi inspiration Donna Farhi. I am excited to take back with me no doubt some amazing teachings to be able to share with you in our classes as we progress over the summer months. Due to this training, there will be no Flow + Restore evening in June. 

The next  Flow + Restore evening is on Monday 29th July. Just in time for our last session before the Summer Holidays. where we will explore the Chakras, moving through sequences that connect to the energetic centers of our subtle body, cultivating balance in each chakra. These evenings have been filling fast, so book your space early to avoid disappointment. For more information and booking, click here.

Meditate, share, talk, write and heal

25.05.2019

One year ago today… I celebrated the most wonderful day of my life, marrying my best friend, the most amazing man, husband and father I have ever met.

FB_IMG_1558644579220 (1).jpg

Today we celebrate our one year anniversary with our girls by our side in Edinburgh. However it is with deep honesty, I must tell that this day, this week comes with many mixed emotions, feelings and sensations.

We have each other, we have our two baby girls and now we have our beloved Angel.

Only three days ago we experienced the agony of discovering our third child-to-be had no heartbeat. A silent miscarriage - there is something about the word “miscarriage” that even in 2019, it is like a woman’s dirty secret, yet it is an unspoken trauma that so many have been through. After having two successful unproblematic pregnancies, the thought never really crossed my mind that it could happen to us. I was unaware of the impact it would have because we don’t talk about them. But why? Why is this painful experience something that women are meant to sit with alone or only shared with a partner. It is a natural truth of our body - so why not share it. It is a pain I imagine will stay forever, yet society makes you feel it’s something you should hide and forget ever happened.

As a yoga teacher, I practice in my own life and teach my students not to suppress painful emotions. My job is to help people release this deep suppression they have pushed continuously inwards and down their whole entire life. If we don’t deal with pain as it occurs it becomes toxic within the body mind and then resurfaces as anger, anxiety, depression, disease, fear, guilt, insomnia in our lives towards ourselves or others.

I awoke from a dream crying to my husband at 5am on Tuesday night. In my dream, I went for a scan and was told my baby had no heartbeat. I believed it to be just anxiety about the scan I was due that Wednesday morning. Sadly the scan revealed exactly what had happened in my dream the night previous. There on screen an image of our baby lifeless. We were told our baby had no heartbeat and had stopped developing, our baby had died and that we had a choice to medicate, operate or let nature take its course. I didn’t want to believe what I was hearing, it couldn’t be true. We were devastated but it is nature, something out of my control and I made the decision to let my body do what it needs to do without intervention.

My dream was the minds way of preparing me for the emotional pain that came and the visual and spoken confirmation of reality allowed my body to begin physically letting go of the life it once held. My husband and I were in a surreal space. We wanted this child, we were excited, we had planned this sweet angel in our future, we had already shared our news with many. That voice kicked in “this is why you don’t tell people until after three months”. Why shouldn’t you tell people? Through yoga and just the person I am, I am a firm believer in Satya - Truthfulness and that we are all connected. It is through sharing, we heal.

This month - the month of May holds another grievance I experienced years ago as a child when I lost my mum. What I learnt from the death of my mum was to keep her alive in my heart, she is always there by talking about her. Letting her live through and sharing her story with others and that way I got on with life, maybe not the same person. When you meet me one of the first things I will share with you is my mum because she is part of me, not something I should hide or suppress away just because she has passed.

It is the same thing about my miscarriage - I am told they are more common than you’d believe, and yet no one talks about them. I even said it on finding out “It’s just part of life, it is what it is”. Yet my husband and I are grieving, it hurts your heart. My husband has been unbelievably amazingly supportive, a testament to why I married him. For three months I carried this baby, my body changed, a bump began to grow, I was dealing with the hormones and nausea and still am whilst my body mind is transitioning to no longer being pregnant and letting go.

This is a short lived experience but has had me thinking of all the women before me who have suffered unknowingly. I already know that this is something that will stay with me. I don’t think it will ever go away but what I do know is that I can learn to live with what has happened us, release the emotions and sensations through breathwork, meditation, writing it down, getting it out and talking about it. There is no reason why my husband and I on this one year anniversary of our wedding should hide behind this “instaperfect” when in reality we are happy but we are hurting. I practice and teach in yoga, that we live our lives through the Niyama of Santosha meaning Contentment - It doesn’t mean sitting back in isolation doing nothing but means being happy being with what we have already, what we are, even if right now we are hurting over our recent sudden loss.

All I hope for through sharing my story is that others won’t feel so alone in the way old school society and conditioning makes us feel.

In my job, I work with so many people dealing with grief of the loss of loved ones or dealing with the effects of suppressed emotions. I hope hearing my words - It is known I don’t always live in those perfect squares social media portrays. Behind those squares, I feel for real, I go through difficult days. What I have experienced this week is still raw. Some people may not want to read this or may not understand but this process is in one way helping me heal and may help others or provide some comfort to another.

To all those in my life who knew I was expecting, family, friends, including some of my students and my yoga diploma group. Through telling them what had happened, a part of me felt less alone, it wasn’t just my husband and I. The support, messages, yoga philosophy quotes. songs and hugs have helped me more than they will ever ever know.

“The wound is where the light enters you”

-Rumi

I will think about our beloved angel often and December 7th will come with wonder and an empty space. Our girls, Nia and Ava never knew as we were planning to tell them this weekend but they have somehow felt the energy and have given me nothing but hugs and love. I can cope, I am okay but as my husband reminds me “It’s okay not to be okay” and I hope that this reminds people that they don’t need to feel alone with a miscarriage. It’s not a secret, it’s not something to be supressed, it’s okay to feel how you feel, break down, cry, get angry but let others know, it’s not a weakness, it’s a strength. Be strong. Be kind. Be brave.

Jai Jagdeesh - In Dreams

Go out, spread light to the world
Be strong, be kind, be brave

APRIL NEWSLETTER

Hello,


What a sunny start to Spring we have had this April. I've been enjoying myself in the sun too much, it's already the end of the month as I put this newsletter together! I hope you all had a lovely Easter and got some much needed rest and Vitamin D. This week yoga classes are back in full swing, step back onto your mat and jump into May, explore new playlists, move through a term of classes focused on mobilizing the hips and releasing tension with hip openers and strengtheners, smile, utilize the wonders of the breath and find new ways to de-stress, relax and glow. 


Time to shake those hips, dissolve away held tension and live with joy. 


"SATCHITANANDA"
- Mantra

 

As we transition into a new month, the month of May and with a new moon in Taurus, make sure you make plans for the month ahead to love yourself, value your self worth, make yourself feel good, eat well, sleep well, enjoy the sun and find the time to relax.  

In yoga classes, we will be exploring the practices of opening and strengthening the hips. The hips can be one of the tightest area of our body, resulting in limited motion and possible strain or pain in the lower back. Our practice will help us safely move into deeper backbends, forward bends and towards practicing full lotus pose in preparation for meditation. Between the 29th April and the 20th May, move through a balanced practice exploring the anatomy of our hips and the many benefits to develop your practice. 

On Monday 20th May, we will finish the term with the Hippie Yoga Flow + Restore Evening. This event has 2 spaces left. Email me here or book your place online. There will be no Flow + Restore Evening in June due to training days, coursework that I have to undertake and our Summer Stillness Retreat day taking place on Sunday 9th June. The retreat day is now Fully Booked but please email me if you wish to be placed on the waitlist for any cancellations.  

20190317_155607_0001.png


The next monthly Flow + Restore evening is on Monday 29th July, where we will explore the Chakras, moving through sequences that connect to the energetic centers of our subtle body, cultivating balance in each chakra. These evenings have been filling fast, so book your space early to avoid disappointment. For more information and booking, click here.    

This April I celebrated a one year anniversary for Yoga Classes in Warrington, what a year it has been! I am so grateful and thankful for all your support. Congratulations to our 4 class pass winner Anna McLaughlin and well done to Laura McCaig, Louise Todd, Aileen Houghton and Lisa Albinson for winning a 1 class pass for leaving me a Google review of their experience at my yoga classes. An online review is one of the biggest things that can help a small business like myself grow. I would be so grateful if you have a moment to spare to write a one line review on google here.
 

Yoga in the Park is back for Spring / Summer 2019. Join us for Pop-Up Yoga in the Park Classes at Bennett's Recreation Ground, Warrington. Here is hoping it is warm enough and the sun is shining for our first session to resume on Saturday 11th May. Click here for further details.

On Sunday I shared a 2 hour Spring Workshop with some students, moving, relaxing, drinking tea and smoothies. As we enter a new season, I am creating another Sunday of yoga for June. Where we will retreat for the day from 10am - 3pm with hatha, restorative and mindfulness practices, a soundbath and a vegan lunch. If this sounds like something you would like to attend, please do send me a message or email me here to register your interest for a Summer Stillness Retreat Day and where there is enough interest I will create an uplifting and restful day together. 

Would you like a Weekend Yoga Retreat? Some of you have expressed your interest and requested that I host a yoga retreat this year. Which is something I would love to do. I have sourced a stunning eco venue mid Wales, close to Snowdonia and the gorgeous coastline at Aberdovey for a weekend in September. Do you want to come with me to revitalise in the Cambrian Mountains. A weekend of adventure with walks, rejuvinating yoga practices, nourishing food, uplifting activities with plenty of time to relax and recharge. There would be a maximum of 9 places on this very special retreat, all room options are private but there is shared options if you wanted to travel with a friend or a partner as a couple. Thinking this is something you would enjoy? I need you to express your interest to me for this to happen, as it requires minumum numbers and commitment to go ahead. So please tell me at class or send me an email now if you want a weekend retreat and I will create the magic!...

FEBRUARY NEWSLETTER

Happy Imbolc, Chinese New Year, Valentine's and February,
 

January was a tough year but we made it!... To all the lovely new student faces and to all of my students from last year who have returned to the mat, welcome and welcome back. It's been wonderful meeting you all and thank you for a fantastic start to the New Year for bracing the elements, even trenching through snow to attend yoga classes.

“I am Blessed”

-Affirmation

As we began 2019, we set ourselves a Sankalpa, an intention of peacefulness for the year ahead. Each week we have returned to this intention through our practice and play with the yoga principles, the Yamas. Next week we will complete our Yamas Series.

On Monday 18th February, join us for a special half term Yamas Yoga Flow + Restore Evening. Come along for a 1 hour Breathe Flow Glow Yoga Class or a 1 hour Restorative Yoga Class or experience the strength and still of both as we explore each of the Yamas to end the term and enter the next. Spaces are very limited for the Restorative session, with only 2 spaces left. Find more information or book your space here

Please note that there will be no Yoga Classes on Wednesday 20th February and from the 27th February - 3rd March.   

Restorative yoga classes take place every Thursday morning 10-11am at Padgate Community centre, next week our class falls on Valentine's day and we have a wonderful self-love heart chakra practice in store. Join us for an hour of restorative yoga, relaxation, meditation for the heart chakra with rose essential oils and a herbal Pukka Love tea to finish. Click here to find out more or book your hour of self love. 

If you can't make it along to class, check out your Valentine's gift from me to you. Your Free Restorative yoga class guide for you to practice at home. Try these gorgeous heart focused restorative poses, for a moment of self care and after your restorative yoga sequence, why not nourish yourself with a bright pink inspired by love Energy Buzz Smoothie, sit and sip in stillness and serenity.

If you have made it to a yoga class and you have enjoyed it, I would be grateful if you could help me by sharing one line on Google Review here or Facebook here, as it would really help others discover and try our yoga classes. 


Rise into the beginnings of Spring, a time to soften, shake of the snow, clear, grow, take some rest and nourish your soul.

SLOW DOWN, LISTEN TO YOUR HEART AND RESTORE…


Our Restorative yoga classes are one of the most tranquil and calming sessions in our week. This restorative practice is very different to our hatha flow style classes. In restorative, we focus in on slowing right down, grounding to the earth and tuning inwards. It’s a mindful meditation on your mat with the opportunity to completely restore the body mind.

You will hold the postures for minutes at a time and rather then grasping or attaching to the postures, give yourself permission to let go of muscular tension and sink in, releasing as much effort as possible. Attune and focus entirely on your breath, helping you remain present within the moment as your body releases tension and noticing the minds thoughts with a sense of stillness.

You can say restorative is the most advanced yoga practice, it is not always easy to bring the body to still. Notice when you want to leave the pose, if you want to fidget or the mind attempts to distract your calm. Allow it to happen, notice it, breathe into it and let the thoughts or sensations be on their way!

Never feel pain within the pose, adapt where necessary. This practice has been designed without props as most you will not own a bolster or blocks but please use blankets and cushions for extra padding, warmth and bend the knees where needed to release the lower back.

Sometimes it is welcoming to come into Savasana - corpse pose (see the final pose) in between postures to realign and reset the body and tune in to how you felt before entering the pose and how you feel when releasing out. Set a timer on your watch or phone so that you can relax into the postures and know when to move out, move out easily and gently.

Press play on my Spotify February Yoga Playlist here or practice in complete silence. Enjoy!

Bālāsana - Child’s Pose

(5 minutes)

Bring your knees mat width apart, big toe’s together. Sit your hips down towards your heels, arms stretched out in-front. Release your forehead and heart center to the earth. Place padding underneath the hips or forehead if preferred.

IMG_20190207_161049_623.jpg

Jathara Parivartonasana - Revolved abdomen twist

( 5 minutes each side)

Lie on your back, bring both knees into your chest. Arms out to sides, shoulder height with palms facing up or down, your preference. Drop both knees over towards the left, gazing to the right if it’s comfortable on the neck or gaze up. Repeat the opposite side.

IMG_20190207_161324_337.jpg

Viparita Karani - Legs up the wall pose

(5 minutes)

Sit with one hip to a wall. Turn onto your back at the same time as bringing your legs up the wall. Shuffle yourself as close as possible to the wall, so your legs are straight. Rest your hands on your belly, by your side or overhead. If any pain in the lower back, bend the knees with soles of feet together.

IMG_20190207_161427_631.jpg

Savasana - Corpse Pose

(5 minutes)

Lie down, legs out mat width apart, toes falling out to sides. Brings your arms away from your side, palms facing up, fingers naturally curl. Rock head side to side gently before coming back to center. Forehead slightly higher than your chin, allowing the frontal lobes of the brain to quiet. Breathe into your heart space.

When you are ready to release from your relaxation, begin to deepen your breath, bring movement to the body and roll to your right side, taking a moment there before moving on with your day. Complete your practice with a nourishing bright pink inspired by love Energy Buzz Smoothie, sit and sip in stillness and serenity.

Om Shanti - Peace…

Namaste,
