‘I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teachings of my soul.’ ~ Rumi ♥️

Welcoming in Svadhyaya ~ self study ~ in class this week. Arriving at the fourth #niyama in our #yogaphilosophy series, we re using our practice as a way to explore the inner workings of our selves. Learning about our habits, our patterns, our thoughts. Accepting ourselves wholly.
Join us for a soothing, introspective practice.

This week:

Wednesday Yoga For All 8-9pm on Zoom, @beaulieucommunitycentre & recording.

Friday Slow Flow To Restore 7.30-8.30pm on Zoom & recording.

Taking a mini social media break this weekend. Less scroll, more time with my little ones / yoga / painting etc. Happy blustery weekend all 👋🏻

Often there’s a need for movement. Sometimes just stillness. Or the beauty of both. Sometimes listening to music really loud and shaking it all out like your limbs are jelly (little yogis, you know this 😉). Screaming at the top of your lungs into the quiet after catching the latest news headlines. Hey, even taking time out for you just sitting on your bolster drinking a hot cup of tea completely undisturbed is good.

Just a reminder that all is welcome. All the feels; all the stuff. Welcome welcome welcome. Putting it out into the Insta-abyss as a reminder that what feels good for you doesn’t need to fit into someone else’s ideal.

And the Sun took a step back,
The leaves lulled themselves to sleep
and Autumn was awakened.
~ Raquel Franco

Equinox blessings 🍁

A time to pause, take stock, embrace the stillness amongst the chaos. Harvest the seeds we’ve sown and let go of what no longer serves.
The shift from Summer to Autumn can often feel hard as we bid farewell to the light, but remembering the balance of duality; light and dark, yin and yang etc, we re reminded that in darkness a lot can be illuminated.

My favourite season. Also, soup season 😉 😋

Join us as we ground and root up on the mat this week. Class timings in stories.

Taking time for you is the best form of rebellion ✌🏻

Newsletter subscribers can look out for a blog I’ve just shared. It’s about a new practice that’s available ~ a Loving Kindness meditation.

One of my favourite practices and a really beautiful way to compassionately nourish yourself.

If you’re not on the list and would like to receive it please send me a DM.

Here’s to taking time for YOU. My dishwasher may need emptying among a whole host of other tasks still to be done, but this sunlight is glorious.

Contentment / heartfelt gratitude...

Opening our hearts to all that we are and receive so that we can live with profound connection, acceptance and appreciation for what is - rather than living for what is not.

Join me this week as we delve deeper into our philosophy series and explore the Niyama of Santosha.

Wednesdays (8-9pm) @beaulieucommunitycentre, live online or via recording & Friday’s (7.30-8.30pm) online or recording.

🔸 Finding space in between my thoughts in wide open space 🔸

Those things that bring you joy ~ walks in nature, yoga, a run, dancing, painting, writing ~ the stuff that soothes your mind, encourages you to take some deeper breaths that nourish you inside and out. Let’s do more of those things. In fact, let’s do them every day.

Life is short. Do the good stuff more.

Feeling all the things today. Reckon she knows it.
Big week. Back to school. Public classes resume next week. That sense of potential unfurling as a new routine (hate that word) comes into play. Sadness that my sidekick wont be with me all the time. Gratitude for the time we’ve had together (albeit with it’s ups and downs) these last few months. Watching the beautiful relationship unfold between my girls has been joyous. Worried about how the little one will feel. Excitement about getting some things up and running. Exhaustion at the very thought of it. Usual Sunday 🤪

Online classes resume this week. And as of 16th, our class at @beaulieucommunitycentre is back! Check your inboxes for booking details. Couple of spaces remain.

🌀P R E C I O U S E N E R G Y 🌀

We’ve been exploring the Yama of #brahmacharya in class of late. It serves as a reminder to consider how and where we’re spending our energy. I love cycling back through these guiding principles as they create a pause in which we can create some positive change.

Some questions I’ve been considering:
💡 Am I wasting a lot of time scrolling mindlessly?
💡 Am I over exerting myself physically when I should be taking constructive rest?
💡 How much time am I spending comparing myself to others?
💡 How much of my day is eaten up by worrying about what I cannot control?
💡 What’s going on in my inner narrative? How am I speaking to my self?
💡 Am I surrounding myself with people who offer support or who drain?

Enough said 🤣 Im going to spend my week off this week taking a step back to really consider the above. Creating some positive change. And in the words of my very special teacher, always with a big dollop of ahimsa (nonviolence/kindness).

Go gently all.

#littleyogastudio #brahmacharya #yogapractice #yogainspiration

Feeling a strong pull to reinstate some daily rituals that fell a bit by the wayside during the many changes of lockdown. Sitting with my little ones to find moments of calm, talk and listen being one of them. Sometimes they watch, sometimes they join in, sometimes they don’t, but they’re really always watching aren’t they? 😉

(I love how my biggest baby arranged our cushions from biggest to smallest 💔)

S A F E R E T U R N 🌈
It’s been an unexpected few months to say the least. One that’s encouraged all of us to live in the present moment to the fullest, knowing that it’s actually not possible to plan for what’s to come. When the spaces we all met to practice together in had to close, it was hard to know when we’d be able to get back.
As one of our spaces, @beaulieucommunitycentre, prepares to reopen next month, we headed down there today to check out how the space is going to work in a safe, socially distanced way. Like many, there’s definitely an air of apprehension but it genuinely felt great to be back. Looking forward to sharing space with all of you who are ready very soon and all in a really safe, spaced out way. For any who aren’t quite feeling public classes just yet, you ll still be able to practice online too. After all, Yoga is for ALL and that includes however you’re feeling about the new shifts too.
Will drop regular yogis an email with details soon. If you want to be on it, drop me a DM. Stay safe all 🌈 #littleyogastudio #yogaforall #chelmsfordessex #yogaessex

New week, new beginnings, time for new, positive change ♥️

Taking time to observe what my #yogapractice go tos are and what Im avoiding 😉 The same with thoughts - what words am I using to speak to myself? What habits am I slipping back into? What am I holding back from doing and what feels safe right now? The practice of self study (svadhyaya) affords us the chance to consider and reflect. And who knows, maybe in the depths of our discovery we can move beyond our own boundaries 💫

On the mat this week:

WEDNESDAY \\ Yoga For All - 8-9pm
FRIDAY \\ Slow Flow & Yoga Nidra - 7.30-8.30pm

All practices available to purchase as a live class or recording. DM for more info. Happy Monday all 🙏🏻

‘In the end only three things matter; how much you loved, how gently you lived and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you,’ ~ Buddha.

Exploring Asteya - non-stealing - in class this week. I love giving the #yamas fresh attention; each time there’s a new thread to work with, a renewed sense of value to take from them and explore. It’s always an interesting shift when we look to focus not on what’s lacking, but the abundance of the life we’re living. Food for thought for sure.

This online yoga Zoom life has been happening for a whole FIVE MONTHS!! Have repeated that statement at least 10 times to see if I really can believe it. Words can’t describe how grateful I am to every single yogi who has practiced with me during this odd time. It’s lifted me up in more ways than I can possibly convey and I’ve learnt so much over that time. Sure I ll never quite be comfortable with the idea of being in front of a camera (particularly when, as a teacher you never stop learning from each and every practice and continually revising and exploring new ways to share and grow) nor do I truly understand the meaning of ‘your bandwidth is low’ 🤷🏼‍♀️ but I’m so grateful to see your faces in little boxes on my screen each week 🙏🏻 It’s been a trip. Hope the practices have lifted you and brought some space and calm to your little corner of the world.

Last practice of the week is Slow Flow & Yoga Nidra for a truly cooling, calming practice. Drop me a message for a recording so you can practice in your own time. Happy Friday all ♥️

‘To believe in something and not to live it, is dishonest.’ ~ Gandhi.

Moving through the #Yamas in our practice of late and tonight takes us to SATYA ~ truthfulness. Exploring ways to connect with our own truth, in all aspects, with a movement and breath-centred practice that will flow into our lives off the mat too.

Class runs 8-9pm every Wednesday. You can join us for a one-off class or get a discounted 6 week class pass via the link in my bio. Can’t make the live class? DM for a recording.

I call this ‘tired mum with a touch of insomnia and a teething baby who’s just put the dinner on, made approx 4,235 snacks for everyone and painted the front door finds a quiet corner to move her body and breathe’ 😜 In all seriousness, I squeezed in a really soothing, slow practice this afternoon. Focused on really connecting with each action of the body as I moved. Exploring how everything felt and where I could find release, where I was holding tension. Nothing fancy, just simple stuff that makes everything seem a little calmer; a little clearer.
Wishing you all a peaceful Sunday 🙏🏻 and hope to see you on the virtual mat this week.
Wednesday \\ Yoga For All (Vinyasa) - 8-9pm
Friday \\ Slow Flow & Yoga Nidra - 7.30-8.30pm.
Booking via the link in the bio. Can’t make a live class? Drop me a message to get the recording.

There is so much more beyond this (it makes me dizzy just thinking about it 🤗). So much more to be had than the joy of a damn good stretch; of some delicious flowing movement. Sure there’s that too, but as we head into our deep dive on the Yamas and the Niyamas, I for one can’t wait to uncover the hidden gems and little pockets that surface each and every time we revisit them ⚡️ Starting with the beautiful pearl that is #ahimsa (nonviolence), we ll be exploring acceptance, kindness and listening and crucially, no force.
Let’s do this together. As one of my teachers always tells me, do everything with ahimsa, ahimsa, ahimsa. Yoga For All (Vinyasa) 8-9pm via our good friend Zoom.
