Why am I here?.....I ask myself – something seemed like a good idea at the time and then I go to follow it through and find myself like a rabbit in headlights, paralysed with fear of the unknown. And yet, here I am.
Welcome to my website. Scary stuff, this putting myself out there, seeing pictures of myself. This is all part of my journey, part of stepping up as a yoga teacher, learning to share these deep teachings. Experimenting with my comfort zone. Actually beginning to show up just as me.
As a practitioner of yoga, I find myself changing, learning about myself. I’ve spent many, many years wrapped up in the image of who I am through my job. With this blog and website I am hoping to explore other ways of being, remembering / exploring ways to write and create.
Standing in front of a conference talking about social enterprise is one thing - I'm talking about something I am passionate about and the field in which I worked - I'm not standing up sharing something that is also deeply personal - a side of me I keep at home, I keep hidden - even from myself. This is changing - yoga is bringing the different parts of myself together - what started as an intention to reconnect with nature and joining an online community several years ago is now spilling over into everything I do. Please join me as I wander, wonder and blether.... Thank you Laura Neville for your support and encouragement and for holding my hand while you designed my lovely website. And thank you to all of you who have supported me on my journey thus far.
I'm really excited about this current block of yoga classes.
Take time out for yourself and come along and join me for yoga at Craignish Village Hall on Tuesday evenings and / or Wednesday afternoons.
Tuesdays (7.30pm - 9pm) and Wednesdays (1.30pm - 3pm).
During this block of 6 weeks of classes (which started (22/05/18) we are working with the powerful Sun Salutation sequence - Surya Namaskara. This time of the year is full of energy - plants are really bursting into growth, seeds are sprouting, the ash tree in my garden is coming into leaf, everything is beginning to flourish and we too can tap in to this spring energy. As we head towards midsummer, the element of fire, the time of the endless daylight let's work with this sun energy. In class we will look at all the postures (asanas) that together become the sun sequence. We will work with movement to release tension held in our bodies to make space for this fresh energy - allowing the fires of summer to transform the old, transmute the 'no longer needed' and really harness the energy of this time of the year. And then we will pause, finding stillness and deep relaxation to allow us to integrate, absorb and heal. Dru yoga is a gentle, flowing yet very powerful form of yoga. Om sri suryaya namaha.
