❤️Sanctuary for your Soul❤️

Day Retreat Saturday 14 August

Sue Dawson & Broomhill Estate, Muddiford, Devon

invite you to step away from the daily “have to’s” and pressures to come and

indulge, nourish, nurture and replenish, finding sanctuary for your soul

Open your heart, to be seen and show up as you are already.

To find ease and joy in just being present, to be with ease in your practice.

Taste good foods,

Lie, be still and be bathed in sound.

Be surrounded by nature, art and sculptures.

Connect back to YOU. Your time.

Gentle yoga, moving through asanas and breath to release built up tension and make space in our bodies and mind so we can feel more ease and flow

Sound Baths help trigger the relaxation response helping us to return to our natural resonance and harmony creating positive wellbeing.

Sound can be our anchor to help us shift our focus away from the constant fluctuations of the mind, allow us to be present, absorbing the sounds, it is possible to release tensions, discomforts, release emotional pressure, gain clarity and insights, feel grounded, it can help with burn out and frustrations and help us find joy and calm.

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.

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.

February term

4 weeks of live classes, (8 per week) moving mindbodysoul

You will also gain access to a r private Facebook page with a recorded library of well over 100 classes. So even if your times do not suit the timetable you will be able to pick up a live recorded class or 10!!! Links to my meditations on insight timer plus bonuses.

Please note the session title are the main frame but each session is an integral practice using many disciplines of wellbeing , and each session is different from the next.

Garuda and Barre/Chair is more like a Yoga Flow Practice.

Reset is restoring mind body, through various disciplines of Meditation, Yoga, Pilates, Bodywork, Franklin Method.

Drop in session £15 Month Pass £50

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

December OnLine Studio

I know it is early, but we have been “winter styling” and turned our home into a nordic ski lodge!!! I cannot tell you how happy this has made me! it feels super cosy and I just feel so happy to stay in and snuggle down ready for Christmas.

We have sleds, reindeers, (not real ones obviously, although how lovely would that be!😍) fairy lights, 2 Christmas trees, vintage skis, skates and snow shoes!!! We really have gone to town, or chalet I should say! So instead of buying presents this is our gift to ourselves. This December is also our 5th wedding anniversary so being super cosy and creating a space that fills our eyes and hearts with things that create joy and memories felt so important this year.

How are your plans? Does it excite you or fill you with dread? I know I have had some like that some years that I have dreaded it, for sure. It will be a very different one this year for us all I am sure in many ways.

If you would like to join me online for Our December program please do,

with a fun pre Christmas week, fancy dress, pjs, shades of red, green, white all optional to create some festive fun, plus a social zoom Christmas get together, bring your mulled wine or favourite tipple and prepare to play!😍😂

I look forward to spending December with you!

Please message me if you would like more information. Sessions are from 30, 45, 55 minutes

If you are already an existing client please continue to pay via Bank Transfer thank you x

if you would like join us, and do NOT have bank details then please book here. Thank you x

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 🌟🙏🏼🤍

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!)
