❤️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.

May – beautiful May ☀️☀️☀️🏖🤸🏻‍♀️

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.

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

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!)
