It's definitely been feeling a lot like summer lately! Come and join me over the coming weeks as we shift into the summer season. We will be inviting our bodies to twist, to unfold, to bend, to stretch, to peel open, to melt, go deep, unknot, energize, unfurl & to balance. Allowing our minds to soften, to go inwards, to release, to notice & to calm.
You can look forward to walking away feeling like a weight has lifted, with a spring in your step and a new sense of joy and ease. With time, once or twice a week feels too little and you will begin to crave more, to start to NEED that time, that moving meditation, those moments of stillness, of awareness, of introspection.
Wherever you are in your yoga journey, the key is practice, practice, practice. "Do your practice and all is coming." - Sri K Patthabi Jois.
Still not convinced that yoga is for you? Please take a look at the reviews!

What exactly is happening when you step on the mat?
We have all heard that practicing yoga is incredibly beneficial for our overall health.

If you have ever been to one of my yoga classes, you probably remember feeling pretty amazing afterwards. So what exactly is happening when we step on the yoga mat?
Here I explain in plain English what goes on inside your body that makes you feel so good. Also how different poses affect you in different ways. Stick with it… it’s worth the read!
Yoga in the Park for Charity
One last thing! Please don't forget to attend Yoga in West Harrow Park this August!
If you didn't make it to any of my charity classes in the park last year, then here is your chance to experience the liberating and grounding affects of practicing yoga outside to the sounds of nature, surrounded by nothing but trees, blue skies & clouds.
It is also a wonderful way for our community to get together to celebrate summer, wellness and our beautiful local park that we are so blessed to enjoy. Let’s get together to breathe, energise and evolve, whilst raising money for a great cause.
To reserve your spot please click 'Going' in the corresponding Facebook Event here. Dates in image above. Please share this event with your friends on Facebook. Your donation of £10 cash on the day will go to Teenage Cancer Trust. Your support in spreading the word is greatly appreciated.
