Meditation and Journaling

7 week course

Meditation & Journaling 

Join me for this fabulous course in how to make the most of your meditations and understand the reasoning of journaling. How and why and what wisdoms are within it and demystifying everything around  it. 

We will go into journaling, unpacking any myths and creating a sense of safety around journaling and self permissions and limitations.

You will Be given set meditations to try, and unpack them. No rights or wrong here, just understanding different perspectives to open new ways of thinking and evolving.

Helping find clarity on your thoughts and insights in a safe supportive way

Why is this course something I should invest in ?

This combination is very powerful to helping you understand you in a more in-depth way. In a supportive group you have a chance to listen and or share if you are comfortable, this will help you to understand and start to see how we are all related and connected and how you will start to see your own innate wisdoms evolve and show up more readily and freely.

The power is you! This is a facilitated session to help with inner growth to help you find more ease, joy and peace in your life, and as a by product help you connect to others and improve relationships and give you the confidence to find your own voice.

I would love to see you on this course.

This will also be very valuable if you join the ABC Wellbeing Program which will be launched in 2021

Meditation – take a moment

How are you today? 

I mean, really, how are you?

Do you ever stop to ask yourself this question? 

Do you stop enough to actually listen and find the true answer, the deeper answer?

With stress and anxiety on the rise, with all the uncertainties that are being presented to us, it is more important than ever to take a moment to find space, calm, peace and to restore energy and find balance. 

If you are too busy to meditate, then I suggest to you that you need to meditate more! 

Take a moment away from the business, the worry, the stress, the constant chatter in your mind, the lists of to do’s and join me with this relaxation meditation I have wrote on Insight timer, 

Embodying Relaxation 

10 minutes to just stop and be, stop doing, and just be, be present, be still, be YOU.

How is your sleep?

If you struggle getting to sleep it becomes a viscious cycle to catch up on feeling ok to be able tackle the day. 

You may like this meditation to help you drift off, a soft voice inviting you to relax, let go, melt into your cosy bed with a delicious piece of music to lull you to drift off.

Drift beautifully into deep sleep.

I hope they help you, I would love to know how you get on. 

Please share to anyone you think may like this.

INSIGHT TIMER!!!!!! YES!!!!!!!

I am very excited, I mean REALLY EXCITED,

I am now a meditation teacher on insight timer, the fabulous meditation app.

My first release is a new meditation called “Dear Heart

This is a self compassion meditation, using layers of loving mantra, the voice of the feminine and masculine parts of ourselves and the frequency of the heart crystal bowl.

I would love you to take a few moments for yourself and listen. Using headphones is the best way to fully appreciate this meditation.  

Please follow me, rate and review this session as I’d love your feedback.  

Feel free to share this with your friends and family as we can all benefit from greater self compassion.

Thank you 🙏 

With much love

SG Pilates Retreats

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!)

Josephine-knowing how to help your body recover through a challenge

Our last week together before Josephine leaves for Norway.

Josephine’s challenge is to be the first British Woman to complete the Amundsen Expedition, known as the hardest ski race in the world! And I have the pleasure of training her over the last 2 months of prep to help her. We have been working on true core strength and resilience.

Todays 90 minute session we worked on techniques to help ⭐️rejuvenate, relax and restore⭐️.  One of my favourite sessions that I teach.

As a professional bodyworker I showed Josephine how to release tight muscles and tension by using her hands, body weight and also spiky balls (something I have promoted to all my clients, over the last 20 plus years, whether this is in Pilates sessions, restore or one-to-ones) for massage and acupressure points and through breathe and imagery. We discussed and practiced meditation and breath, and the relation between a tight psoas (hip flexor)  breath, stress, back stiffness, less resilient core and pelvic function. I showed Josephine bones and props to  help her have a clear mental imagery to help her improve the function of the psoas and diaphragm link when she practised her release conditioning exercises. and breath work.

Having her mind focused is so important she has to think clearly under such stress in order to survive the conditions and succeed in her challenge.  This is no ordinary race.  Josephine has a time pressure (it’s an endurance race), but also has to navigate in extremely dangerous situations, whilst cold, in the dark and with little or no rest.   She is in unknown territory, on her own, competing in an extreme physical test of her strength, endurance and determination to survive and succeed clarity and focus is not just needed it is essential.  So how do you maintain that clarity and focus under such pressure?

So practising Meditation and rhythmic breathing will help keep the pre frontal cortex optimally working for performance,  quick thinking, decision making, something that is impaired when stressed. Practicing these skills is equally important in both the rest and recuperation phase as well as the exertion phase. This is why  as part of your trying for such an extreme endurance event it is critical to learn how to rest and recuperate properly and effectively. This is an area, in my experience where most athletes and most of us in general, could increase there performance of many levels by focusing on these areas. After all muscle is built and healing takes place when the body is in a rested state.

Josephine, I send you off with so much love, energy and the best of all my knowledge and wish you success and ease! I cannot wait for your return to gear all about it!!
