September Newsletter

Updated: Dec 3, 2022



September, you beauty!


Oh my, I must say I do love that Autumn is on the way, even though I adore the summer months and warm sunshine my favourite season is Autumn. It's the season of change, transformation and new chapters. What are you looking forward to this month?


Here in this months newsletter, you will find a variation of upcoming workshops, classes and online practices and my goodness there is so much to look forward to!



ADAPTING TO AUTUMN


Autumn is a beautiful time of year that allows us to withdraw into the baby steps of hibernation, it seems that the world and nature gets a little quieter, offering a time of self reflection and introspection. When we step out of the hot summer days we feel the cold air moving in, the leaves fall and a sense of letting go moves all around.


Within Ayurveda there are three primary Doshas. Each person has each of these three Doshas, but one Dosha is more predominant. Just as we have one of these energies 'ruling' over the others, each season is also dominated by one of the three Doshas.


Autumn is the season of Vata Dosha, qualities of this constitution are cold, dry, rough, light, changeable and constantly moving. Vata is a combination of the elements air and ether, so the energy is very airy, flighty, creative and very much in the clouds! When we want to work with balancing this energy we have to do the opposite, so we would bring in the qualities of Earthly and fire elements. Grounding practices that are slow, still and strength building, sometimes creating heat, twisting and allowing plenty of moments to rest. Grounding yoga practices really help us to anchor us back in the moment and out of our flighty minds, helping us feel calm and steady.


Im currently writing about 478234 blogs all at the same time, an in depth write up on the Doshas is one of them, so sit tight, it will be shared soon!


What are your favourite things about Autumn? Do you notice the qualities of Autumn affecting your body and mind? Do your eating habits and exercise routines change? Ill be sharing so many wonderful techniques and tips in all of my upcoming classes and workshops, you'll soon notice that the way I teach is very much tuned into the seasons, weather and the way us humans move through our daily lives. Bringing the ancient teachings of yoga to modern life.


 


SOUND BATHS THROUGH AUTUMN

Im hoping to fix a few dates through Autumn and Winter so I can share monthly sound bath sessions with you all, this will hopefully be a Sunday or Monday evening. Perfect to find a deep state of rest, recalibrate for the week ahead and calm the whole body and mind.


Ive recently written a blog post about what a sound bath is, so if you're a little unsure and want to know a little more heres the link:

SEPTEMBER STUDIO CLASSES & NEW CLASSES


This months classes bring lots of nourishment and deep practices, you will find that within the cooler and colder months ahead that our practices dip into heat building postures, core and inner fire work, immune boosting breathing techniques and sequences that keep us motivated through the months that often bring a sense of sleepiness and hibernation!



NEW CLASS STARTING TUESDAY 13TH SEPTEMBER!

I have a new in person class starting on Tuesday 13th September, a beautiful deeply relaxing practice that stretches the muscles, connective tissues and helps to create more space within the whole body, its probably one of the most beneficial yoga practices that helps us to release physical aches and pains and aids in reducing stress and inducing deep sleep.


This session will run every other Tuesday (attendance permitting) from September 13th.


6.15-7.30pm

Church House

Rectory Lane, Areley Kings,

Stourport-on-Severn,

Worcestershire. DY13 0TB




This is a small and intimate space and the session is limited to 10 students per class, these are first come first serve spaces. You will need all your cosy things, cushions, blankets, blocks and bolsters, everything and everything to rest and support the body while you rest and settle into each posture! Yin yoga, here we come.
