Reminders …

Good morning!

Next Monday, 9 December, there is an evening Reiki Share, 1900-2115 (£10 per person), let me know if you are coming

And there are a couple of additional yoga classes. I am aware the dates are close to Christmas but I’m hoping there will be enough people available to run the classes. Again, please let me know if you are planning to come:

What’s coming up

I wanted to let you know some events and future dates leading up to and beyond the New Year. The links will take you to the relevant pages on the website

Yoga

Regular Classes continue until Wednesday 11 December. In addition, there is an extended two hour class with a guided meditation on Wednesday 18 December. This is a stand alone class, let me know if you would like a place:

Reiki

The last Monday evening reiki share for this year is on 9 December. There is also an extended Friday afternoon Solstice Reiki Share on 20 December. Dates for the shares in the New Year are now available too:

Therapies & Appointments

Appointments are available until Friday 20 December. All therapies are restorative and nourishing.

  • I’m really enjoying exploring the more subtle side of Ayurvedic massage. I am also finding that my two approaches to massage (Thai and Ayurvedic) are informing how I apply techniques in both. They are a real delight to give and receive.
  • Reflexology continues to be a staple of my therapy toolkit and is powerful in its ability to work at a distance to reset the mind and body.
  • Reiki is the choice for a moment of stillness and meditative guidance; it continues to amaze me how this energy facilitates being present and holding space and in turn allowing a shift to occur in another person’s wellbeing and health

And of course at this time of year, a voucher for any of the above is well received. I tend to send these out by email but a paper copy can be collected from Yanley Court if you would prefer.

For any questions about the above feel free to contact me

A reflective week

I have been having a lovely time with different groups of people and thought I would share what has been going on.

Cakra workshop

Firstly there was an afternoon workshop last Friday discussing cakras and the elements. This side of yoga philosophy is often shrouded in the misconception that it is something new. I really enjoyed exploring the history of this subtle energy body model. We discussed how it can inform our relationship with ourselves, our breath, with others and with the seasons and cycle of life.

Morning Retreat

Then on Sunday I met with a group for the Morning Retreat. This was an opportunity for sangha (community) and to practice together. We enjoyed chanting, asana, pranayama, discussion, meditation and time out. I felt very nourished and connected.

As well as the Wednesday evening classes, I met with a group of people who are living with fatigue. We practiced yoga for an hour with gentle breath focused asana followed by a cup of Ayurvedic tea and chat about how to nourish and support ourselves.

What a wonderful few days of community and practice. Am feeling very grateful – thank you so much! Yvonne x
