This time of year can be a challenge. The cold darkness starts to outstay its welcome for many of us in the northern hemisphere. The realities of January, a “new year, new me” (– blegh) and all those demeaning pressures and expectations become apparent. We are summoned to attempt to revamp all that we are […]
Hiya! Sorry again for having to cancel last week´s class, caught a nasty bug on new years day which took the wind from my sails.

✨💙🔸✨healing🌅place✨🔹💛✨ Been totes exhausted this week and of course being run down meant I caught a cold. 👎😞 *cue raspberry claxon* So many remedies and lots of rest- finally starting to feel more myself again.

I’m not rejecting suggestions or to learn about food and nutrition because i appreciate those who share ideas and food is one of my fave pastimes (get in my mouth!😛👈) but when sharing and advising veers into territory that […]
Don´t hate what you don´t understand. Don’t judge what you don´t understand. Be yourself for everyone is taken. And so on. I always wanted to be a writer. Correction, an author.

This week´s Yoga Recipe is a bit of a rinse out in celebration of Mercury going direct (last weekend) as well as the clocks going back an hour for some of us, and hopefully the “winning” of an extra hour (in bed or elsewhere).
