2019 & stuff

Calendar and Dates

I’m putting together my schedule of classes, workshops and courses for 2019. I can’t figure out how to import the calendar so you just click on the menu and it magically appears; am working on it.  In the meantime, do have a go at accessing the calendar via the calendar page and let me know how it goes:  calendar

Yoga 

I have made three films, working out how to fit the whole me in the screen whilst being audible.  I think I managed it with the last one but my phone froze and I disappeared to somewhere.  I may need to update my phone …  I am hoping to produce something for the Winter break and will let you know when it’s available.

Next week is the final lesson of term.  We return in January on Wednesday the ninth.  The first morning retreat of the year is Sunday, 17 February.

Reiki Spaces and Elemental Healing

I have added dates to the calender for reiki shares (evening), courses, workshops and equinox/solstice healing circles (daytime).  I have them all planned but am still writing the pages for you to look through and see what grabs your attention.

Bodywork news

I have moved from the futon to the massage couch.  It seems I am heading towards the next phase of womanhood.  I am experiencing a whole new balance of hormones and challenges and with that comes a need to accept the support the couch offers.  If you are used to working with me on the futon, I hope you will be open to trying bodywork on the couch.  (Discussion about perimenopause is completely optional.)

In other news, I am starting an Ayurvedic massage course in the New Year.  I see this as part of my yoga and bodywork journey.  This will also give the option of clothed and skin to skin massage.  Will let you know how it goes and hopefully tempt you to a new bodywork experience.

Gift Vouchers

A reminder that gift vouchers are available for individual appointments, courses of embodied therapy and yoga: gift-certificates

Reiki news & healing spaces

This year has left me feeling reflective and grateful for the healing aspects of my work.  Another year of teaching courses, providing healing shares and finding clarity around what reiki is and what it isn’t, is shaping the way I want to teach. 

I am creating one day reiki courses, specific to the original teachings of reiki as a mindful practice.  The additional aspects I work with and I find nourishing, I will offer as afternoon workshops.  I am spending time writing over December and will post ideas and offerings in January.  Here are some dates to bear in mind:

  • Reiki Shares are on Mondays 1900-2115 :
    • 14 January, 25 February, 1 April, 3 June
  • Introduction to Reiki (reiki I) on Fridays 0930-1830:
    • 1 March,  5 April, 20 September
  • Developing your personal reiki practice (reiki II) on Fridays 0930-1830
    • 5 July, 29 November
  • Developing your professional practice to be arranged individually
  • Elemental Healing workshops on Fridays 1330-1630
    • 3 May, 2 August, 25 October

Let me know your initial thoughts.  It’s always great to hear your ideas and responses

Yoga Classes and stuff …

(Click on the links for more information)

patanjaliA reminder that yoga begins next Wednesday for 6 weeks: Yanley Yoga Spaces.

We had a false start to Friday’s Early Bird Yoga this week.  It looks like numbers will be good for next Friday morning (0730-0830).  Deadline for booking-in is midday Thursday 7 November (minimum of 4 early birders).  I will confirm the class on Thursday afternoon: Friday Early Bird Yoga.  Numbers allowing, this class will continue until the end of November, returning Feb/March next year.

I’m exploring some ideas around yoga, practice and bodywork.  This is a mixture of personal study and attending lectures and study groups.  I am hoping to write a weekly blog about what’s been happening and how some of my experience, research and studies might be useful to you.

For those of you who missed the blog, the Morning Retreats return next year.  The February date has had to change due to me attending a course.  Details can be found here: Morning Retreats

I think that’s it for now.  Any questions, send me an email: Contact
