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!

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 🌟🙏🏼🤍

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
