As the weather turns wet and windy and we give in to turning the heating on, it’s time to give ourselves a seasonal boost with some exciting new in-person classes and workshops in the capital, with a focus on looking after ourselves. Because now we’re allowed to go out and do yoga, why wouldn’t we? (more…)
The sun is out! Summer is here! And in the words of the song, “We’re all going on a summer holiday, no more working for a week or two…”
And even though for most of us that summer holiday is a ‘staycation’, it’s still a joy to have a change of scene, even if it’s not abroad.
We are coming up to the anniversary of the UK’s first lockdown. It feels like it’s about a hundred years ago, and five minutes ago.
Last May I wrote an article about getting ready for yoga teaching after lockdown, with no inkling that I would be writing virtually the same article almost a year later.
There are lots of things that feel long about this pandemic. There are long lockdowns, long queues for the supermarkets, long waits to be vaccinated and long gaps between seeing our friends and family.
But one of the many human tolls of Covid-19 is the condition termed ‘long Covid’.
As yoga teachers and practitioners, this is a condition that we will all have to learn about, perhaps even for ourselves, so here’s what we know so far.
With Christmas being anything but normal this year, it’s important that we keep upbeat.
Back in March many of us thought that we would go into lockdown and come out the other side and back to normality. But eight months later this is very clearly not the case.
Whether it’s down to government mishandling or not, this pandemic is still affecting every aspect of our lives.
With this continued uncertainty, and many of us facing a quiet and potentially lonely Christmas, how can yoga help to boost our positivity levels?
