  • Injured

    Last week we were exploring feeling in the body from the calm relaxed space of the Para Sympathetic Nervous system. Apart from the obvious benefits of feeling relaxed, plus the physiological and psychological importance of spending time out of our stress response, being in this space prevents injury. I know ALL about injuries. In October […]

  • Body

    This week and probably next we’re looking at aspects of the body. Don’t we do that every week? Well, yes and no. Although in the West, yoga is primarily a physical practice, we are often completely disconnected from our bodies – even when practicing. I’ve mentioned before how many of us (including me!) live our […]

  • Mindful Communication Workshop: 14 October

    I spent over 15 years managing global projects in insurance, consulting and investment banking, before retraining in yoga and mindfulness. I hope to bring my extensive corporate communications background plus mindfulness teaching together in a way that brings Mindful Communications alive for everyday use. In this workshop we’ll be looking at how to take mindfulness off […]

  • The Intellectual Mind

    This week we’re looking at our intellectual brain, the mind. I almost didn’t want to go here as I believe we are already too much in our heads already, and that we all think way too much. There are some who believe that thinking is the root of all evil, that the mind is the […]

  • Invisible

    Recently I was in Ibiza and there really is no better place that brings up all of my issues. Sitting on my favourite beach Cala Benirras, I wondered what draws me to this place, especially given that I’m not a partier so the usual Ibiza trappings aren’t my scene. And I realised that it’s this […]

  • Taking time for yourself

    I’m exhausted. Physically, mentally, emotionally – and spiritually. As well as holding space for others for many hours during the week, I’m also working through my own issues and stuff, which takes it toll. I love teaching but it is not cost free, and there comes a time when I just need to take time […]

  • 5 Ways to Beat the Heat (when you live in Britain, not Ibiza)

    I spent a summer living in Ibiza a couple of years ago where the temperature was regularly in the mid 30s.. sometimes even above 40 degrees. Sounds either idylllic or awful, depending on your response to heat. Ibiza has the sea, swimming pools, blackout blinds, tiled floors, air con (sometimes) and siestas. How can you […]
