Relaxing Yoga at Maggie’s Centre Freeman 2pm today

And I think it will be Tulip time in the garden. I will take a photo.

Yoga today 2pm Maggie’s Centre Freeman (Tuesday 19th April).

I am teaching a relaxing yoga class. We follow people’s needs.  So far we have looked at balance, easing movement for the shoulders and having a chance to really switch off and let go of tension and worry. If you are not up to a physical practice, IMG_0969just come an have a rest. Lying relaxing and thinking about your body doing the movements is beneficial too.

Dear All

Wishing you a good journey and a happy leave. 

We will all have our own journey stories.  There was frustration at my house over dolphin plank and getting ready for 30 mile walks at Kielder and I know you will have your own freeing space stories too.

Having time out of everyday responsibilities to recoup and reflect on your priorities, time to make wee changes and edits and take control is so very important.  Have a good think about what you hope to get from your retreat and what you are in need of.  We will help you to find that .  Maybe write it down, perhaps bring a journal or notebook.  

Some of you are choosing to have a break from technology, mobiles, emails  etc.  Its a lovely chance to do that, so think if that is what you need and perhaps set an intention if so.  Maria and Kate are coming to offer Indian Head Massages from 4pm IMG_2613.  

Bring cash for the treatments.  I can always bail you out temporarily if you forget!

Remember that this is your retreat just as you are and for what you need.  We hope it is nourishing to mind, body and soul.  

Om Shanti


Here is a reminder of the timetable and treatments feel free to book with Maria and Kate.

Yoga for your spine and your hips



Dear Yogis

So this week in class, we will be looking at your spine health and I will be teaching you practices to help you keep the sciatica away.

This week we are working with the hips. We will have a very hip practice to ease and strengthen that big ball and socket joint, juicing the hips in all directions. If you don’t use it, you loose it.

The hips in yoga energy terms are associated with being grounded, centred and calm energy. So we will be looking at the root chakra and ending with a delicious meditation.

A couple of notes:

I have a broken leg (in a few places across a couple of bones!) and so I need a little help. If any of you feel able to drive me to class any of my classes please get in touch I will be very grateful! – a single journey is ok. Please as a team can you help set up and clear the room for me, that is fantastic. I am non weight bearing so I cannot carry anything as balancing on crutches.

Next yoga retreat – 11th -13th March

Also consider coming to Minsteracres with me and Noel and Stephen on retreat – just 7 places remain for March and those of you who have been before know what an amazing life experience it is. It is always different. Ask me any questions and check out my website for more information.
