Happy May Day lovely friends. We are in the middle of a nice long bank holiday weekend. The sun is dancing between the clouds, poking her head out and bringing heat and then she gets covered over and the rain starts. Can’t complain too much about the rain though. We planted beetroot and cabbage in the garden recently so the rain means they’re sorted for watering. Which means more time to read, walks with the kids, my own yoga practice and practicing gratitude. Yep gratitude, being grateful for each and every moment of each and every day. Being grateful for the joy of living.
Throughout May we will work into our shoulders and upper backs. Those of you practicing with me in April have been on a shoulder journey and we will continue this. So much of our modern life sees us closing ourselves off to the outside. Sitting at desks, over phones, rounding our shoulders protecting ourselves from being hurt. But by doing this we also close ourselves off to the power of human connection and compassion. So join me in May to open out, to embrace heart opening postures to encourage you to be more compassionate and present in your life.
Sunrise is kind of early at the moment (around 5.45am), are you getting up to watch it? Living on the East coast it can be amazing to watch the ball of yellow rise over the sea. But if you’re not an early morning person try a glimpse at sunset. Studies show that if you have had a tough day, drive to your favourite spot, watch the sunset. Then take a few moments to tune in to how you feel. Let it wash over you, breathe. Sunset Yoga is back this Wednesday 04th 7.30-8.30pm. Join me for a class that uplifts you spiritually, move with Evening energy and then Savasana under the big blue. Bring a blanket to wrap around you to keep toasty warm.
