I'm a Registered Yoga Teacher 2013 (RYT) I trained with Sue Woodd, Marit Griffith and Julie Hanson for The Seasonal Yoga Teacher Training, qualifying with a Yoga Alliance 200hour. The SYTT training includes Vinyasa Krama practices of Seasonal flow and Ashtanga, training and practice in Asanas, Kriyas, Pranayamas, Mantra, Anatomy and physiology, Meditation, Chakras and Nadis, Chi Gung and the philosophy of yoga.

Hello my lovely Yogis,

I do hope you’re all managing to find your own rhythm and calm during these turbulent times. I wanted to thank you for your kind messages and let you know the plan for Mind Body Inspired Yoga. 
Truth is, I’m still a little unsure. The past 5 months have been a rollercoaster. Having two kids with you 24hours a day, with all the demands of homeschooling, constant feeding and entertaining, has at times been a little exhausting, especially when one has additional needs. I’m absolutely not complaining though, as it’s also been a blessing, a joyous re-calibrating, re-evaluating, 'coming togetherness'.

As much as I miss you all and would like to be back on the mat guiding yoga, we are faced with hurdles. The regulations for meeting as a group are constantly changing, especially when using a community space. So for the foreseeable future I won’t be teaching weekly in person. As for live Zoom sessions, finding the peace and energy to be there for you is difficult (see above point about the children). I am, however, working on some exciting online content, but the progress is slow and, being realistic, I won’t have anything ready for a while. 

Hmmm, so... where does that leave us? Well, I can recommend teachers to follow online. Just drop me a note and I’ll sync you with a good fit for you. 

I would also welcome your thoughts too. Are you wanting live Zooms? Pre-recorded content?  A potential half-day retreat?

The seasonal yoga that I teach has never been more relevant to me. Having the ability to care for oneself with the tools I’ve learnt over the years is amazing. Through the nutrition, pranayamas (breathing exercises), meditations and flow, I feel I’ve been able to support myself and my family during these ground-shifting times. I want to share more of this with you. It’s not just the flow, but the whole lifestyle in seasonal rhythm. This is the content I’m working on sharing. If in the meantime you feel you need some support or pointers, please feel free to get in contact, and I would love to hear from you. 

Always look for the light and remember at times it’s ok not to be ok. 
Love and peace, my friends. Be kind. 
Sally

YOGA and ART Day Retreats. NEW DATES WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON

The mornings of our retreat days are spent enjoying yoga postures which help nourish the body and compliment the season. In the afternoons we experiment with art, colours and creativity to express a seasonal theme. We take an hour for lunch and, weather permitting, enjoy a short post-lunch walk. We learn about living our lives in tune with the seasons and opening our minds and bodies to the rhythms of nature. Some of those who come along are apprehensive about yoga. Others might be nervous about the art. But the whole day is planned to make everyone feel welcome and comfortable no matter their level. No extreme yoga, no judgements with the art. Just a chance to relax in a safe, friendly and fun environment.  

Come alone or bring a friend and enjoy a well-earned break from the day-to-day routine. Our aim is to make sure that you leave feeling refreshed, replenished and inspired. You never know, you may even find yourself signing up for the next retreat!

If you are joining my classes:

What to bringA mat - please. Dress in layers. With the heater the room will get very warm, but could start off chilly in the cooler months. Bring water, a blanket for relaxation, and a smile.

Pregnancy:I have not taken any specalised certificates for teaching people who are pregnant. My studies and teacher training does cover some basic advice and I will suggest alternatives when necessary. If you are pregnant and want to attend the classes I will provide you with a handout that outlines my policies.

When I was pregnant, from personal experience I can recommend the following: Fully qualified for teaching yoga during pregnancy, Check out the wonderful Zoe Martin at http://www.yogaleicester.co.uk/ she looked after me during pregnancy no 2.

For pre and postnatal pilates and other other pregnancy related fitness (not yoga), I also recommend the lovely Joanne Helcke at http://www.joannahelcke.com/zest4lifeuk/ she looked after me post no 1 and throughout no 2.
