Yoga for Health

Reuniting Body, Breath & Mind

Chair Yoga

We have now accomplished over 100 chair classes, and together we are learning that there is still more to learn. So much of Yoga can be adapted for a chair practice. I am thrilled and delighted to see the changes occurring, and to share the commitment and passion that the ‘Babes’ themselves are showing for […]

Resolution or Resolve

Are you in the habit of making New Year Resolutions? Did you make any for 2024? Have you ever notices how New Year resolutions are often measured by the quantities ‘more’ or ‘less’. Perhaps a resolve would increase your motivation. Inspiration comes from the outside, motivation comes from the inside. What quality or qualities do […]

Watches, Smart Watches & Fit Bits

What have they got to do with yoga? I’m the wrong person to ask because I don’t understand their place in a yoga practice, and certainly not in a class. Here’s my thinking… For the duration of the practice stop measuring yourself by time, pace, step etc. Yoga is the practice of self awareness, it […]

Anchor your big toes

Yogis tend to relate to a balance pose from the head – that dreaded thought “my balance is lousy” and that initial thought registers their wobbles. I am learning to read balance poses from the sole up, particularly from the grounding of the big toes. A quiver in the big toes sends off a ripple […]

Force versus Feeling . . .

Force versus Feeling / Balance and Breathing It’s quite a mouthful but it is the theme for Term Two 2023. As there was only a week between terms it was good to come back to poses we had just refreshed, the ones we knew and liked, the ones that felt safe for us on all […]

Returning to class

With a theme addressing the digestive system, our early January start was aimed at the post Christmas/New year overload of festive eating. All went smoothly for the first five weeks, with poses specific to stimulating and improving the digestive process. After a weather event that effected everyone in our surrounding area, returning to a class […]

Cyclone recovery

Hard to believe it is April already. All intentions of a monthly ‘thought’ got lost during the past three months. Our area was pummelled by a cyclone, people and land left battered and bruised, the effects far reaching and long remaining. Where does Yoga fit into this? Is it time to step away from Yoga […]

20 years on

Resuming classes in January 2023 will mark the start of my 20th year of teaching Yoga. I like to think that as I’ve matured my yoga journey has deepened and unfolded as indeed has life.  There have been twists and turns, hills and hollows and potholes along the way; even a few detours. The perfection […]

Wisdom of the Felt Sense

A yogi of many years has recently thanked me for providing personal tuition, both practical and theory. In any learning (I believe) you can only take in so much regardless of the level you are at and according to what makes sense to you at the time.  Sometimes during learning, you feel as though you […]

Yoga twists and self-care

Surely an unusual combination, or is it? When related to yoga, I think that twists and self-care suit each other.  Read on. One of our themes this term is the yoga twist, and we will place the body in various base positions and study a twist in each; i.e. lying down, sitting (with various leg […]
