Yoga for Winter & Education Support UK

I have recorded a 35(ish) minute yoga practice based on the Morning Dailies term, this ends with a seated breathing practice and quiet reflection. It is offered in the spirit of practice and to raise money for a charity to support teachers and supporting staff. The film is not the perfect production but I hope it will provide you with a restful and reflective yoga experience over the next few weeks. Ideally you will get to the stage where you put me on mute and we just practice together …

Donations for Education Support UK

I am requesting donations via my Just Giving page for Education Support UK (see link below). They are the only UK charity dedicated to the mental health and wellbeing of education staff in schools, colleges and universities. They provide a free 24/7 helpline and financial grants. They support individuals in crisis, help to improve workplace culture, and work with policymakers to improve our education system. I hope many teachers and supporting staff know this resource is available – please spread the word

If you work in education …

… please accept this practice as a gift – no donation necessary but I would love to know about your experience of working with the practice: Contact

If this is your first yoga practice, be gentle with yourself. Many people find coordinating new movements with the breath is a bit of head game. The movements look simple but a focused, breath led approach can be challenging. If you feel light headed or dizzy, you may be over-breathing. If that’s the case, get to know the movements and allow yourself to work within a comfortable range of movement. Your breath may be longer or shorter than mine and that’s ok, do what your breath needs. Try to avoid twisting your head to watch the video and bring your focus to your breath and your own practice. Please use the suggested supports and variations where necessary. Let me know how it goes.

I have not brought the meditation to a close; this will allow you to sit for as long as you want. Here is the written practice sheet which can be downloaded if you find a written practice useful:

Please let me know if you have any issues accessing the practice or the Just Giving Page

Thanks again – with blessings for the solstice and the season
