April, well hello there!!

Spring and Easter is right here and I feel like how did that happen?

The sun has been kind and have enjoyed the odd break to feel a little of the sun rays on my face in-between my schedules. Restrictions are being lifted and people are starting to appear in the streets and beaches.

How do you feel about that?

Does it fill you with apprehension or joy?

Life has changed, people are choosing new ways to approach things and we are all still finding our feet.

I know lots of things have changed for me, and it is partly scary and partly exciting, as what will unfold.

I have no idea and I can only go with the flow and see what reveals itself, as they say one door has to shut for another to open, and whether that’s instant or slow and takes time I shall endeavour to know it will all be ok!

April term is all ready to go, with Pilates, Garuda, Franklin Method and Power Hour on the payment plan and Meditation and Yoga are available as pay as you go or a course, please enquire.

May is being worked on with hopefully some early morning Yoga slotted in to start your day the right way before work or a day entertains the children, grandchildren or yourselves.

May Coastal Retreat is FULLY BOOKED and hopefully will go ahead, 4 had to be cancelled over the last 12 months so I am excited for this to go ahead, to share time and space with beautiful people.

I shall be planning another for October/November in North Devon if you would like to be notified please get in touch.

SoundBaths are being scheduled along the way with different flavours and themes. on line aswell as in life realtime, yayyyy so excited to share these with you.

Private sessions available in live in my Woolacombe Studio, online and also monthly in Bristol starting soon.

So everyone, lets keeping hoping and being positive that we can move forward, we can see loved ones again, we can a coffee time, dinner, and even cuddles in the near future.

love to all

February 2021

It is getting lighter in the evenings, daffodils are starting to peek through the ground, and there is a feeling of new beginnings. Right now we are amongst confusion and an unknowingness that we have never experienced before, together. There are opportunities for all of us to grow. We have an opportunity to learn from everything that unfolds around us, however trivial to however traumatic. Can you resonate with that? Or do you get lost in the fear of it? I encourage you to look deeply, to ask questions to yourself, to be curious with life and at the same time be kind to you and go gently. It is a wonderful practice to see life this way, to step out of the drama of life, to find a little separation and space . And to remind ourselves of impermanence. Nothing stays the same, everything changes, however wonderful or however hard things may feel, things change, you will change, your body, all your cells, your thoughts, your perceptions. Don’t get stuck in the stories we tell ourselves, we always have a choice, how we react, how we see, feel, think. How does that concept make you feel? Explore your answer!

Yesterday I was part of a lovely online Yoga Retreat creating a wonderful relaxing sound bath journey. Such a lovely way to spend a Sunday on a cold chilly day. I am running a Valentines Retreat Saturday 13 February with the lovely Juliette Grove. we would love you to join us, we have a few spaces left so do get in touch.

You will have get to enjoy Pilates and Garuda, plus a nutrition talk, a questions and answers session plus a sound bath journey to finish the day. We are offering this day at a very discounted rate to help you get through lockdown. To give yourself some nourishment through movement, mind and sound. And as the last retreat proved you can feel just as nourished joining us on line from the comfort of your own home, you don’t need much space just enough to lie your mat down, so come and escape to within with us, we would really love to share time with you, we are both super passionate and compassionate teachers with a big sense of reality and lightness.

So please get in touch if you would like more information of book your space.

Take a Moment -A little bit of self care

Stop, take a pause,

Notice your breath,

Notice the air you breathe,

Listen with your ears more receptive, notice all the sounds you hear around you with enlivened newness

Look with your eyes more open, notice the colours with a new awareness

Notice the smells around you,

Just noticing, can you notice without judgement?

Can you notice without attachment?

Can you just be present to the nowness, just for this moment?

Take a beautifully refreshing breath in and take a deep rooted sigh out,

Be comfortable with whatever is arising,

just sit with it,

no judging, no wishing for change,

not clinging on to its story,

just be.

Have a lovely day and hope to see you in the zoom room.

one to one coaching and training available. Please enquire

Welcoming in 2021

Day 2 of the New Year,

Sending love and compassion to all of you that have been affected somehow in any form from loss of loved ones, loss of work, loss of connection, I wish you more ease and peace for 2021.

For all of you reading this now, take a moment to reflect answer these, even journal them down for a reference point

How are you feeling?

Are you optimistic for 2021?

Have you made any conscious decisions to do anything different this year?

Maybe with more gusto or more surrender?

I would love to hear from you your thoughts.

2020 was certainly something different.

New challenges, new ways to approach what was our normality.

How did you cope?

Who was able to learn new things?

Who has learnt to acknowledge their own resilience?

Have you taken a moment to even give gratitude to yourself for how you have coped?

Got through the year?

Stepped up? Or even learnt to Let Go?

Let me congratulate you all for showing up today and every day, wherever you are on this map of emotions and life.

For those of you who have been with me in my online studio, much gratitude for your support and your wonderful energy you brought to the sessions.

With so many various styles there is always something to chose that suits where you are, physically and emotionally and how you are feeling and with the added bonus of the recorded sessions to be able to chose the times that suit your own personal schedule so you never have to miss out from having a session.

Here is the new timetable for January, please note the titles are merely titles and what lies within each session will be an integral practice of mind, body, soul work depending on many factors of YOU, individually and collectively, who shows up to the lives, who is enrolled, what is going on, the time of day etc

This is why every session you do is always different.

this approach will also help keep your mind and body adaptive and engaged

I will be also adding a few 10 minute bonus sessions so keep your eyes peeled, watching out on your private Facebook page for all information.

We also have the Meditation and Journaling for Wellbeing Course Wednesday evenings so please contact me for more details

much love and appreciation as always

Sue xx❤️🙏🏼
