Seriously I cannot believe how the months are flying by, I guess with my online studio and privates plus the 200 and 300 hour Yoga training, and the 3 sound therapy courses, plus a renovation project, designing and organising the orders, I shouldn’t be surprised I have skipped time or maybe expanding time???!!!
I must admit I am loving doing it all but also will really appreciate taking some time off for summer. Talking of summer how amazing has the weather been, I already feel like its summer, loving this. Thank you thank you thank you !
Have you been crazy busy? Learning new skills? or enjoying taking it a bit slower? or maybe not enjoying taking it slower?
Excitingly there are 2 Bank Holidays, I am going to make a promise to myself to not do one bit of work, even answer an email! 😂 My husband would be amazed if that happened.
Do you have any plans?
I hope to walk my fur baby on the beach and chill with my husband maybe drinking a coffee or two.

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.

The Psoas, your true core and emotional muscle
learn, move, embody, breathe
Healthy Hip and Back Workshop May 9th 2020
Your pelvis, your root, have you ever given it any thought?
No? maybe that is the problem.
Come and explore why knowing and embodying the pelvis and it’s rhythms can have profound effects on the health of your hips, back, knees, pelvic floor and even hamstrings, hip flexors and shoulders.
If you are curious, if you want to move with more ease, flexibility, and feel good in your body this is a workshop you will want to be part of!
Whether you are a Pilates or Yoga devotee, dancer, sports person, gym bunny or ANYONE who wants to experience what feeling good in your body REALLY feels like, or wants to release tension, improve movement and flexibility, and increase strength, this workshop is for you.
Understand the biomechanics and how visualisation and imagery effects your function.
Get to know the design of your pelvis, what it looks like, the function of the hip joint, the rhythms of the bones for healthy hips and spine, and learn bio hacks to better movement.
Additionally participate in a healthy hip class, self massage, and finish with a ROOT meditation.
This workshop is informative, yet fun and relaxed.
Please wear clothes appropriate for moving easily.
Come, listen, learn, embody and move! Be curious, I look forward to taking you on a journey.

the Psoas, (hip flexors) your true core, your emotional centre.
Poor posture will upset the complex psoas amongst many things, and can affect your breathing, and can be the cause of your bad back, inflexible or tight hips.
A tight core can restrict the diaphragm and the lungs and disrupt coherency. Fluid movement is what we want to encourage to establish a healthy core.
The Psoas -an embodiment and mindful movement workshop. An holistic approach to relax and condition your Psoas. Explore where the Psoas resides, what is it anyway? Why it is something you should know about, and why knowing and embodying it can help improve its function. Its relationship and health benefits to breath, hip, back, kidneys and the pelvic floor and it’s emotional links.
Enjoy discovering the location and function of the Psoas and illiacus, efficient movement and training and release. Explore the emotional psoas. Finishing with a meditation to fully absorb and embody an holistic workshop. This workshop is perfect to do after the healthy hip workshop to deepen your understanding, but is an individual workshop.
Who is this workshop is for?
Anyone who wants to learn more about their body, embodying its movement, those who want to release tight hips or back tightness, and feel more open, physically and mentally.
We will be using props, dynamic imagery, the use of balls and bands, we will touch on the pelvic floor and breathing ready for the next workshop “Just Breathe” and “the Pelvic Floor, being resilient.”
please note each workshop is a stand alone workshop in their own right but very powerful when linked together

What a fabulous weekend was had by us all on the SG Pilates Coastal Retreat, we were blessed with amazing sunshine on the North Devon and perfect sea state and wind conditions for paddleboarding as an additional treat.
We started our mornings with an early start with Qi Gong cleansing and strengthening the organs routine on the headlands with the perfect view. The energy created was just amazing. We closed each evening with a meditation. Sessions were Pilates, Garuda and Barre plus a Franklin Method Workshop about the Pelvis and Psoas. The weekend was a perfect balance of moving, mindfulness and play!
Every bite of our food was just super delicious thanks to our wonderful chef Stacey Fae Jones and her husband Will, the Gin Master!
So thank you to everyone that came, with their amazing energy, laughs and love and to everyone that were involved along the way, Stacey and Will Jones, Lucia Mcauliffe for the exceptional bodywork she provided, Darren Sturgess, the man of musical talent and his handpan session, and of course my wonderful husband for helping with the behind the scenes lugging equipment and listening to me checking over and over again I had everything in place! (for the many months in preparation and on the weekend!)
