Hello Yogis!

Yoga is much more than asana (physical postures).

The days are getting longer and it feels so good. The recent sunrises and sunsets have been absolutely breathtaking, bookending the day beautifully. Many of you are cultivating your home practice and have recently commented on how yoga shows up in your life in many ways, not only on the mat. In particular, many of you have said the pranayama (breathing practices) we do in class have really helped you and have become second nature. Ultimately, that's what our yoga is about, using it as a tool to facilitate our best life. The more we practice the easier that which no longer serves us drops away.

Because so many of you have been talking about pranayama and reaping it's rewards I thought I'd share a recent article from Scientific American about the practice of Cardiac Coherance, which you will no doubt recognise as our 1:1 and 1:2 pranayama. It's a really interesting read.  Let me know what you think.

This past month students in my Monday night class have been working with the principle of ahimsa, one of the five yamas (laws of life) as laid out by Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras. Ahimsa—often translated as "non-violence" or "non-harming"—is the opportunity to relinquish hostility and irritability, and instead make space within your consciousness for peace. As always, we start with ourselves and watch the ripples.

There is much debate on the source of the quote in the image. Ultimately, it appears to be an unattributable riff on the Buddha’s sayings found in the Dhammapada.

Beginners classes:
I am dedicated to supporting people in starting a yoga practice – because yoga is for everybody. Every. Body. – and am collating a list of interested students. If you or someone you know is interested in a beginners class please email me ( to be added to the list and notified when the next suitable class will be.

There's lots happening over the next few weeks, join us for group classes, workshops and our Spring Cleanse!

By making a commitment to your practice you will reap the rewards.

All love

Registration is essential for these workshops.
