Meditative Spaces Online

There are two more Monday evening meetings before we break for the summer. I find that people do not want to be indoors on a summer’s evening. I am hoping to bring these back in the late Autumn:

  • Monday 14 June 2000-2045: Guided Meditation, preparing for the Summer Solstice
  • Monday 28 June 2000-2030: Yoga Evening Breathing Space

Morning Yoga Online

The Morning Dailies Online are morphing into Morning Yoga Online in preparation for the Summer. However, until 9 July, the classes continue daily:

  • Mondays to Fridays: 0900-0930
  • Friday Early Birds 0730-0815

From 26 July there will be four 45-minute morning classes each week: Monday, Wednesday and two on Fridays.

Online Term Yoga

We have had the first week of a five week term; spaces are available. There are three term classes available. If you cannot come to your normal class you can change – helpful to know in advance please:

  • Wednesdays 1800-1900 and 1915-2015
  • Thursdays 1300-1345

The Online Summer Term continues Wednesday, 28 July for five weeks; choice of term payment or set number of pre-booked classes

Reiki Course (in-person)

If you have been interested in studying Reiki or wanting to create your own meditative and relaxation practice, this could be the course for you. This first degree course requires a few hours of pre-course reading and then a day to practise with others (maximum four students). If you want to continue to the next level course, Reiki II is available in October:

  • Saturday 26 June 0930-1700 Reiki I
  • Saturday 16 October 0930-1700 Reiki II

Reiki Share (in-person)

Last Friday, we met for our first in-person Reiki Share since March last year. It was really lovely. We managed to work within current guidelines, combining indoor shares and regular breaks outside. It was a big deal to have a group together. I was grateful the group shared the responsibility – thank you. The next two shares:

  • Monday 5 July 1845-2045
  • Friday 6 August 1330-1530

Appointments

Therapy appointments are available Monday to Friday. I have opened up the diary to offer additional morning appointments on Mondays and Wednesdays. Fridays is the most popular day and tends to book the quickest. If you are looking online and cannot find a time, please contact me and I will see if I can shift things around to accommodate you: Contact

Other news

Holiday: I am taking two weeks off in July. The first week I am away camping with the family; it’s so lovely that my twenty something sons opt to come away with us. The second week, I am home writing and preparing for the summer; this week ends with an online conference with the AYS, my yoga community. This conference is open to everyone. Have a look at the programme, looks fascinating: https://www.ays.org.uk/

Ayurvedic Lifestyle and Nutrition Consultant: In September I begin my Ayurvedic studies. Ayurveda is the traditional Indian medicine practice with a 5000 year history. I have been considering this for a few years and have found a course taught by a team of Ayurveda Physicians and Practitioners, a Life coach and Clinical Pharmacists. Their goal is to teach Ayurveda in a meaningful way and integrate healing practices for students and their community. Included in the approach is encouraging students to lead a healthy, fulfilling and meaningful life – self-development at its best. I will be keeping you up to date with the course and sharing some of the teachings.

If you practice yoga with me, an Ayurvedic approach is present in our practice, particularly the use of breath and asana to create particular effects within the body.

Happy Sunday!

Tonight: Online Term Yoga

We return to Term Yoga tonight and spaces are available. We are continuing our journey with the breath and the practice includes sequencing and gentle twists. Our pranayama practice is Nadi Sodhana (alternate nostril breathing) and we will complete the practice with stillness.

In a flowing practice we can lose our connection to the breath just as during a busy day. I am hoping to encourage you to remain connected as you embrace changes and the busyness of summer.

This is a five week term with three class options:

  • Wednesdays: 1800 – 1900 @ £45.00 ) term payment
  • Wednesdays: 1915 – 2015 @ £45.00 )
  • Thursdays: 1300 – 1345 @ £35.00 or £8.00 per class

The Thursday lunchtime class is 45 minutes but follows a similar practice to Wednesday evenings. The shorter time allows people to access the class during the day and there is the option to use this as a drop-in class.

If you have a week where you cannot make your usual term time class, you may change classes by arrangement.

For more information: Term Yoga

There are daily 30 minute online classes available at 0900 with an additional earlier class on Fridays at 0730:

Reiki Course and Share

I have one more space on this month’s Reiki I course on Saturday 26 June. If you are thinking about signing up, please give yourself time to receive the manual and do some pre-course reading. Preparing for this instructive introduction to Reiki allows our day together to focus on the practical aspects of Reiki and discuss any questions you have about your understanding and practice: Reiki Courses

If you would like to know a bit more about Reiki, you might find this talk useful and I’m very happy to organise a time to talk with you before you commit to the course:

This Friday is our first in person Reiki Share since the start of 2020. Numbers are limited to four (plus me) to observe Covid guidelines. We will be sharing a room but everyone can decide how they would like to use the space. We will come to a shared agreement for the two hours. You can book online or contact me to book your space. Reiki Shares are a good way to experience giving and receiving Reiki and can be helpful to help you decide whether or not to attend a course: Reiki Shares

I hope to see you soon
