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

November Term

November Term, an enriched program of Mind, Body, Soul with its influences being about embodiment, feeling, sensing, awakening, somatic and interoception.

Interoception– defined as the internal state of the body. It encompasses the brain’s process of integrating signals relayed from the body allowing for nuanced representation of the physiological state of the body. Why is this important? For maintaining homeostatis in the body and potentially facilitating self awareness. Misrepresentations of internal states, disconnection, have been suggested to underlie anxiety and depression.

When you can experience your body, everything can fall into place from movement itself, clarity of thought, personal relationships, releasing tensions emotional and physical. This topic alone can send me off into a whole realm of topics and discussions hence why I am opening up the ABC to Wellbeing Program to help you create, experience and understand it in an embodied sense. This course will be so valuable and life changing and even enabling you to get even more joy, peace, ease and flow out of everyday life, work, relationships to self and others, including seeing more depth into our monthly programs. So please register your interest, maybe even receive the ABC Wellbeing program for a gift for YOU or a loved one, friend for Christmas!

Anyway, back to November, 😊, the nights are drawing in, so being mindful of the season, and circadian rhythms the evening sessions will be gentle or strength based but with both you will be winding down early and having 15 minutes of relaxation/meditation to settle energies and the parasympathetic nervous system into a rested state, perfect to release the days stress and prepare the body and mind for goodnights sleep. Remember to follow this through with switching off gadgets well before bedtime, choosing your lights for your house to be soft and warm not harsh lights as this messes up the circadian rhythm , eat earlier in the evening, avoid stress provoking situations, news and TV will also help.

Thursday Barre is back! use a table, worktop, window ledge or even a wall. A whole body standing push, pull, arc and curl for the most beautiful sensory stretch session , In my opinion.😊

Please share the program so others can join us and benefit and feel the best they can be, everyday !

Have a wonderful day

much love Sue 🌟🙏🏼🤍

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

Sue
