Time is flying by so quickly, which is a reminder for me to stop and pause for a bit, soak up & breathe in this moment, open my eyes and absorb and saviour all of it before it just flashes on by.
How about you?
Are you busy?
Do you pause?
What do you do to really soak in the day?

Meditation & Journaling
Private 1/1 and 1/2 Studio Sessions held in Woolacombe and on Zoom
SoundBaths are pop up so keep your eyes peeled for dates
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.
So here is the May Zoom Live Timetable
all sessions are an integral embodied approach with Franklin Method at the forefront, techniques, alignments to make your practice kind to your own body design
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.
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!

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,
Have a lovely day and hope to see you in the zoom room.
one to one coaching and training available. Please enquire

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.

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 🌟🙏🏼🤍
November Term fee, please follow up with email to show payment if you are new. Thank you
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,
