Self care, self nourishment

Pause and ask your self this question.

Answer from your heart not your head

Do you give back to yourself & nourish your heart & soul?

& what helps you feel nourished? 

We always seem to find excuses to fill our time with things to do, people to see, jobs to do. But in reality how many of these things can we hold back from for a moment to give some nourishment back to ourselves?  Maybe we recognise this and have started a regime and then life gets in the way and we forget again, all of a sudden we can’t remember when we stopped, is this you? I know this is me.

Most times it is because of the story we have relayed in our own mind, the patterns we have created from what we expect of ourselves, or the message we have heard from others, our mums, our friends, our partners, our teachers in life. 

The message was quite clearly “work harder” “rest is being lazy” “but” & of course,  “I don’t have time”

What if we were to break down this construct and challenge those patterns and start to reinforce new healthier ones instead like, 

“Self care matters” “self preservation gives me nourishment and therefor, from that place, I am showing others that it’s ok to look after themselves too!” “ when I take care of myself I have so much more to give, effortlessly!”  “Time is on my side”

Why not give this a try:

Catch yourself, catch your thoughts- re-educate your message in the moment & every moment you catch yourself. No judgment here guys, just an observation of your construct and then a gentle reminder to change that pattern to support you! 

Perhaps you already do this?  What strategies do you have in place ? 

Maybe try these:

Breath awareness and practices

Yoga or other mindful practices

Stretch & Move your body 

Have Cuddles

Walk outside 

Smell the air, the flowers, a piece of fruit 🍉 

Have a leisurely bath

Wear your favourite or comfiest outfit

Drink from your favourite mug

See friends 💕

I would love to know what works for you. 

Or even if this has helped to prompt you to make a pledge to notice what is your construct, and give your self the well earned permission you deserve to reinforce self love and self nourishment as a must, not a luxury. I will promise to do this more as well. In it together.

Much love ❤️ 

Sue, SGP

Happy 2022- January Studio Wellbeing Bootcamp

Bootcamp Studio- all classes in the zoom live for only £50 for all of January – Yoga, Pilates, Garuda and more

Happy 2022 everyone, are you also overwhelmed of how time just disappears over the last few years?

I have to admit, I have been way too over indulgent this December, eating my bodyweight in chocolate!! I don’t do the alcohol so that’s a relief. I have always had to fight with myself with being addicted to sugar, and some times I get it right and feel amazing then somehow go down that slippery slope again of being a sugar, but mostly chocolate addict. And if you know me you know I mean addict!

Well, I am trying again form the start of this public message to try again to get on the right track, so my bones don’t hurt form the sugar, have you ever noticed that? I have but only since menopause though (as never ever hurt or ached, even when I was a triathlete, I had boundless energy, strength, drive) when I cut out all carbs, no pain or aches and I don’t have to click my foot or back. So even though I know and feel this I still struggle to do it, it is so ridiculous.

I would love to know your views and experiences and how you manage, so do share as we can all help each other out.

So this January I am offering you a Wellbeing Bootcamp month for only £50

this gives you access to ALL LIVE sessions through January. this is a minimum of 36 sessions

over the month you will have

Power 45, Garuda Flow, Garuda and Pilates Barre, Pilates with props, Pilates Mat with focus on core, supple spine, legs and butt, repertoire etc, Restorative Reset, Yoga Flow, Yoga Chill, Meditation and a few bonus sessions thrown in including a talk with a special guest.

if you would like to be added to the membership program and be able to do the recordings also, this is an extra £10 per studio membership , either the Pilates Studio or Yoga Studio

What better time to start, with something for everyone, as many as you chose that suit where you are, with lots of detailed cuing, embodying and learning, being inspired and encouraged to move well in a supportive guiding way.

I would love you to join us so please get in touch and hope to see you in the live studio soon.

Suitable for beginners to advanced including teachers

Let’s feel good together!

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.

This combination is very powerful to helping you understand you in a more in-depth way.

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
