yoga thoughts


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 […]

  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 […]

  How do you make your decisions?   You may consider yourself a decisive person making quick, snap decisions.  Or perhaps you like to take your time and weigh up the options available to you,  Or you may want to “sleep” on it, so you feel really comfortable with the decision you’re in the process of making.   Perhaps you worry about things and […]

  We have met Roger before!  He’s a keen yoga cat and, last time, we saw him working on his relaxation techniques.  (If you didn’t catch the last post, you might like to take a look at the link.)  In his spare time, his interests include cookery and horticulture.  He’s an intelligent and independent feline, who knows his […]

cat yoga – meditation with the “black pear”!


Do you ever feel that you are stuck in the mud? Literally perhaps, with your boots caught up in the mud around you and not knowing which direction to go next as there’s so much muck and dirt around you.  You want to be stable, but the ground beneath you […]

  If you have someone special with whom you’re planning to celebrate St Valentine’s Day this week, I hope you enjoy your celebrations.  There are many – some by choice, others because of the way life is – who may not have that special someone or perhaps choose not to participate […]

my valentine’s gift to you



Well, it’s been a good yoga week so far for me and also for Yogini Cat, Mrs T. My HTA yogis had a good stretch and blew away a few mental cobwebs and seemed to go back to their desks more relaxed than when they arrived! I covered a class […]
