Brining a community together through fitness seems to be the new trend. Joining a friend for a yoga class followed by tea is the new boozy brunch and jumping around underground to a fitness freak aerobics instructor is the new dance rave alternative. The city dwellers have figured out that the natural “high” from sweating and becoming still may be the new G&T. I have been fortunate enough to bounce around the city of London, staying in a constant sweat “high”, experiencing new studios, teachers, styles and levels of consciousness. I will be ‘power’ walking the Glöanna 5K run this Sunday followed by 45 minutes of yoga flow… bring a cheer squad!

The past few months can be summed up in the above images; the amount of change and obstacles faced this year has provided me with strength and perseverance. Coming back to the yoga mat after a cold and dark winter, allowed me to express what I truly wanted in this life.
Love for my partner, love for my jobs, love for my development, love for my family, love for my new beginnings, love for strangers and love for the future.

I wondered why I felt sluggish today… tomorrow hosts the first full moon of Spring.
With the moon laying over Libra, there will be moments of balance and mindful resolutions.
Simple practices to keep grounded are supported child’s pose; lay a bolster/pillow under your body while straddling the pillow in child’s pose, turn your head to one side. hold for 5-12 minutes.
Another one is; karnapidasana (ear pressure pose); lye on your back and set up for halasana (plough pose), bend your knees and lightly place on each side of the head while sending the sitting bones up towards the ceiling. Allow for space in the neck and if it hurts, DO NOT do it. Hold for 8-16 minutes. When you come out of either or both of these poses please re-ground yourself.
with the polarity of our everyday lives and the Aries Sun pulling for the Libra Moon, allow yourself to expand across this horizon and do not get frustrated with dynamic decisions. You will always have the strength of your breath. The truth will be there.

May we treasure the little things in our lives. I found this collection of perfume bottles in my childhood jewelry box. Coming from a home of collections; I treasure these keepsakes and know they hold my memories, but not my soul. To find clarity we must expand our vision and not squeeze into a tiny perfume bottle. I treasure the view from the outside.
