yoga thoughts


  Hello, I send love and warm greetings on a freezing, snowy day! It’s been a while since I posted as I’ve been focusing on my teaching my lovely yogis at the various classes I take each week and staying focused on my yoga therapy studies, which are about the […]

yoga as therapy – how yoga can help you


  Have you set any New Year’s resolutions for 2018?   Many of us often do.  If you have, I wish you success, but, sadly, it seems that many of our resolutions often fall by the wayside.  We promise ourselves that we’re going to give up this or not do that.  We’re […]

setting your intention for the new year


  The cold weather and the snow and ice of the last week may intensify the darkness and dreariness of the short days.  However, the shortest day of the year beckons next week which means that the days will again slowly start to lengthen.  Good news! However tempting it may […]

at Christmas time, receive the gift of the present! 



While her Mum was preparing for today’s classes at Piggott Nuffield Health and Deloitte, yoga cat, Mrs T, was engaged in continuing her yoga practice, using Swan Yoga lesson plan notes as her drishti or focus. Her physical practice these days is less strenuous, as she’s a senior cat these days […]

Yesterday I came face to face (well, almost) with this beautiful swan which, while I was again taking a meditative walk around the local lake, swam over the bank to see me.  I am fascinated by swans and not just because I bear their name.  To me, they epitomise grace and calm, […]

finding balance and harmony in everyday life


We’ve had the most glorious weekend here in Berkshire and I’ve been wandering around “our” lake.  It’s actually a nature reserve very close to where I live.   It’s a place that’s very close to my heart and I have walked there a great deal over the years.  I’ve also taken many […]

how is the path you travel?


My Thursday evening class has started again after the summer holidays and, as the nights are drawing in, I’ve had my candles out again so that the light for our practice is soft and conducive to a relaxing practice rather than have the harsh glare of overhead lights! It’s nearly two […]

yoga by candlelight



If you have read my cat yoga: Mrs S – a light in my heart  post, you will understand there has been a big change in the feline world in my home.  Mrs T has been grieving the loss of her sister, Mrs S, in the early part of the summer and […]
