A yoga year: June

JUNE Inner wisdom. Trust. Let life unfold On recent mornings, I’ve awoken to a veiled world. The mist blurs the view, muffles sounds; a layer of vague bewilderment settles all around me. I check the weather forecast app on my phone to reassure myself that the sun is due to break through later. Because in […]

A yoga year: May

Each month in 2018 I’ll be posting some suggestions to align outlook, inner work and yoga practice with the turning year. MAY Strength. Grounding. Balance. How flexible is too flexible?

A yoga year: April

Each month in 2018 I’ll be posting some suggestions to align outlook, inner work and yoga practice with the turning year. APRIL Acceptance. A fresh start.

A yoga year: March

Each month in 2018 I’ll be posting some suggestions to align outlook, inner work and yoga practice with the turning year. MARCH Inner strength. Self-protection. Boundaries.

New Year, new yoga home

I’m delighted to announce my return to yoga teaching after an 18 month break. I haven’t been idle: in 2014 I moved away from London after more than 15 years, and in 2015 I had a baby boy. My family is now based in Dedham, a gorgeous village on the Essex/Suffolk border in the heart […]
