WOMEN!

Sunday March 8th was International Woman’s Day. I wrote these words in the week following but did not get round to popping them up on my blog. I cannot say there was any particular reason. I think I simply took a break from many things Internet-connected! And that felt very good. I was aware of … Continued



ENOUGH….

‘Let whatever you do today be enough.’ These words were posted on Facebook by a Forrest Yoga friend and really impacted on me on that particular day. I truly needed that gentle shove as I am always wondering how to do more, learn more, practice more yoga…the list is really rather tedious! In actual fact … Continued



WALK IN BEAUTY….

          A Navajo Prayer With Beauty beside me I walk. With Beauty behind me I walk. With Beauty before me I walk. With Beauty inside me I walk.       It is finished in Beauty.                         — Ana Forrest’s version … Continued



TRANSCENDENTAL MEDITATION…FORTY YEARS ON.

There has been a lovely double issue of OM Yoga magazine for me to gently read through these past two months. I began my year in a slow and gradual way. I have been in no real hurry to get up to speed and leap into all that ‘New Year, New Me’ thing. I have … Continued



JUST ANOTHER WALK!

We are now well on our way towards February! I have had a wee break from pretty well everything or so it seems. I actually have been massaging and teaching yoga as normal and somewhere along the way I kind of lost track of time. The thing is that the week between Christmas and New … Continued



GREEN SUPERFOOD.

A few weeks ago I received a package containing a box of GREEN SUPERFOOD. It had been sent as a gift from Jane of OM Yoga Magazine which was really rather good. I am a great one for sticking extra things into my fresh green juice. This particular blend of nutritional goodies is made by … Continued



SOME THOUGHTS ON A FROSTY MORNING….

Sunday, and a quiet day after our lovely Christmas Day with family and then the unexpected blizzard on our motorway trip home. I woke feeling a deep sadness, a dream I couldn’t recollect? Or simply the need to feel. Whatever the reason  the day was simply beautiful. The sky, a deep blue, the air still … Continued



A GOOD YEAR…..

My work-year is now complete. I saw my final massage clients last week and taught my last yoga classes the week before. It is time now for some rest and space.  I have for a long time truly relished the week between Christmas and New Year. These are days when we walk, read and, for … Continued



OUR ALTERNATIVE CHRISTMAS TREE.

We have, for the past few years found alternative ways to decorate our home over the festive period. The placing of a Christmas tree is linked to the bringing indoors of something that is growing. In the Northern Hemisphere daylight is short lived and indeed, the further north you travel the shorter the days become. … Continued



AN INTRODUCTION TO SHAMANISM.

A while ago I was pottering around Google for information on Shamanism which I have had an interest in for over ten years. I first encountered it during my Reiki training with Elaine Swords who uses The Native Amercan Ways. I loved being part of The Circle and gained a lot from my time with … Continued
