WORDS OF WISDOM.

A few words on this beautiful spring morning. These words are taken from A Year of Living Your Yoga by Juudith Hanson Lasater… ‘Responding appropriately is an art. Do you overdo things and underdog others? For today, see if you can apply just enough effort to each task. This requires you to stay present.’ So … Continued



OM YOGA SHOW….MANCHESTER.

This is just a brief post about the OM YOGA SHOW which is back up here in Manchester.  We in the North West are very proud of our city and it is great to have lots of super yoga folk descending upon us and sharing all their love and joy about yoga, tai chi, Pilates … Continued



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
