yoga thoughts


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 […]

cat yoga – Mrs T and the inner teacher


After a week to relax and renew in Madeira, I’m now back teaching my lovely yoga friends at my weekly classes., at the Piggott gym, at Deloitte and the UCEM, amongst others. While I was away, I was again able to share the benefits of yoga with an early morning class for my fellow hotel […]

giving back – karma yoga


Today has been a fabulous, golden autumnal day.   It started with a frost and became a cold, bright and shining golden day, a joy to behold!  I’ve been out around “our” lake again just taking in the air, the sky, the sun, listening to the sounds of the ducks, watching the […]

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 […]

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 […]

cat yoga: Mrs T returns to her yoga practice


If you have followed my musings about the antics of my yoga kitties over the last few years, I am sorry to have to tell you that we have had to say goodbye to our beloved and beautiful Mrs S earlier in the summer.  She shared her life with us for over […]

cat yoga: Mrs S – a light in my heart


I teach a weekly lunchtime yoga class for employees at the Horticultural Trades Association who are based at Chilton.  If you’re interested in seeing why they benefit, have a look here.   I took this picture of these beautiful tall trees in their grounds. What a lovely setting it is! We can do […]

let yoga help you feel grounded and strong, tall and ...



  If you follow what I write, you’ll have seen this picture before and then I linked St Valentine’s day and yoga.  A red heart in that context can been seen a symbol of romantic love.   In reality, this red heart actually hangs on a wall in our home and I’ve decided to use the picture again […]
