Welcome to 2020! I hope you’ve had fun and some time to rest during your festivities. I am very grateful for a few days to myself before I return to Yanley Court on Monday morning.
Inbetween the festivities of Christmas and New Year, I had the honour of being Acting Celebrant. My friend Chris was diagnosed with cancer over two years ago and last April he called me to ask if I would hold his ceremony. I was blown away and deeply honoured. Last Monday was a challenging, uplifting, emotional and exhausting experience. Thank you to everyone who supported me – it enabled me to be present, enjoy and hold the space for others. His wife Nixie, is one of my dearest friends and thankfully an amazing Celebrant. Together we created a funeral, memorial and concert all in one! Though I have to say, she did most of the organising – thank you Nix!
So, to next week – the diary is quite full but things change for people so if you can’t find what you want, let me know as a space might come up.
I am beginning to turn my attention to planning yoga classes. I would like to start the year discussing what yoga is and how yoga influences us individually. Classes return next Wednesday evening at 6.00 pm and 7.30 pm, for a six week term: wednesday-yoga
The next restorative yoga class for people living with fatigue is Wednesday, 5 February at 2.30 pm: restorative-yoga-class-living-with-fatigue
The first reiki share of the year is on Monday, 13 January at 7.00 pm. Let me know if you would like to book in. I am focusing on my own development for the first half of this year. From September I want to offer ongoing reiki courses and peer supervision. If you are waiting for course dates, please come along to the reiki shares to begin your reiki journey: reiki-shares
I am planning to write more about yoga practice, massage theories and studies as the year rolls on. Any feedback or comments are welcome. I will try not to swamp you and if it’s all too much, let me know!
Blessings for the year ahead, Yvonne x

It was an intense day and am still reflecting on it. Enjoyment and challenge!
We can adjust postures to minimise irritation. Do you think it was the practice that aggravated it or something else?
See you tonight
