A Break

Any instructor, whether they be a primary teacher a PT instructor or like me a yoga teacher will tell you that there comes a point in the year when they need a break. Their body and brain gets tired and that’s what I end up having to do.

When I take my six-week sabatacle from yoga every year. It does one of two things. My body scrunches up, my mind starts to play tricks, but when I come back to it after six weeks – I suddenly get the benefits, just like a beginner. A total clean sheet and every year it’s new and every year it changes me somehow.

So having had 6 weeks clear. Today is the day I go back to practise.

“A rainy day calls for an indoor picnic with 5 types of cheese.” Pam Grout

So this is what I bring back to the table. When it’s raining, when it’s cold, when it’s going to feel like the world is going mad, I’m going to look for the silver lining in everything.

Today I will practise Vinyasa with my class and then…

Here’s a slice of what we did…


Tomorrow I begin my 40 day Kundalini Yoga Set!

Come practise with me, let’s see what evolves from it, see how we feel, see what boundaries we break through…

Start Here!

I came to yoga with a bad back and a full mind, lots of constant chatter, no different to anyone else... after 15 years of teaching... my mind still goes all monkey on me, the so called wild horses are still there... but I have it under control, I am aware of it..... my body has never felt so strong... yoga really solves so much...mind body and soul...
