Transitioning into full opening of the Glass House studio

Dear yogis and yoginis,

It has been a while! We have been cocooning in the Covid bubble and teaching via Zoom for what seems forever now!

First of all I’d like to thank those who have supported me and my business through these tough times 🙏. We managed to work via Zoom and build new dynamics and routines. You’ve been incredibly supportive and flexible, ready to try new things and ways of doing them. Your feedback is always so valuable!

Allowing and adapting to change is incredibly beneficial for the brain. Everytime we learn something new and different we build new neuropathways, increasing the white matter in the brain. So, as we grow older – or wiser, as I like to call it – it is very important to keep the learning and adapting going 🤓

HYBRID CLASSES AT THE GLASS HOUSE

From now to the end of June: there are 1 or 2 in person spaces (if you are in a bubble). If the weather is good we will have 2 extra spaces in the garden! Drop me an email or message to book these as it is tricky for me to put them through the booking system.

From the end of June onwards: spaces will go back to 6 as previously, available for booking through the booking system.
Classes are now Wednesday evening at 7pm and Saturday mornings at 10am. I will be adding more classes as students return to the studio and will keep you updated! There are also other courses and workshops coming soon, including a 4 week course exploring the concept of IKIGAI and practical tips on longevity. I will send a separate email with info on this but you can register your interest by replying to this email.

Flowing with change I have decided I will be live-streaming classes from the studio. This is so you guys have options and, if there were to be another Covid wave we are all set – now that some of you have your own props we can easily do this! If any of you need bolsters / mats / blocks / bricks / belts / eyebags —–> I am giving some away and selling some others at very affordable prices. Freebies and prop’s prices at the end of this email

This week’s yoga and astral insights

New moon in Libra & Mercury retrograde

This week starts with some beautiful, expanding alignments in the sky (such as Jupiter squaring the Sun), bringing in a feel-good vibe to the usually dreaded Monday.

Tuesday evening Mercury goes into stationary mode, just before going retrograde until November 3rd. This whole retrograde period, Mercury will go from Scorpio to Libra and back to Scorpio. This is a great time to go inwards (deep —> Scorpio) , looking at our communication patterns and outdated beliefs tin our relationships (Libra) , doing a deep-clean and changing those which are damaging our relations. This energy is even stronger right now as, at the beginning of its retrogradation, Mercury is stationary for a few days.

Continuing with the theme of relationships, Mars retrograde in Aries squares the Sun in Libra (Mars=Yang vs. Sun=Yang). The Sun in Libra wants harmony, balance and justice (at a collective level) while Mars retrograde in Aries is stepping back, looking for a change in conduct in regards to present events. There has to be a compromise to this change. This could be you squaring up to those old behaviours and patterns and realising how much damage these could do to a current important and cherished relationship. This may come with the realisation that you treat others the same way you treat yourself.
As not all of us are at the same level of awareness right now, some may struggle and will be fighting with themselves and within their relationships. Only by taking conscience and being aware of our own patterns of behaviour we will be able to exit some unhealthy cycles in relationships.

On Friday we have a new moon in Libra, which, amongst so many aspects in tension, may feel a little like a push, a forced new beginning – whether we learn our lessons or not. The blackmooning period – from now till the new moon – together with Mercury stationary, is a perfect time to stop and go within, journal, search for meaning, nourish your mind and soul and dive deep into the darkness to find your inner light.
Your soul knows where the answers lay, so just sit back and relax.

Tonight’s Moon Flow Yoga will prepare you for this blackmooning period, allowing you to lay back and open to that unknown scent of darkness, awakening your inner senses to reveal that which your sould deeply knows. Join us for this evening’s class, which will end in a Black Moon Yoga Nidra guided meditation, leaving you ready to enjoy a great night’s sleep where your dreams may reveal those answers to you.
You can book for this class here.

Wild Yoga will be ON this Saturday and it will be matless. I will be leadind a standing practice so you stay warm and grounded, increasing mobility, strength and flexibility as well as balance. Bring some sport, supportive trainers and layers.
You can sign up for class here.

I look forward to seeing you on the mat or the grass very soon!

This week’s yoga – about gratitude 🙏🏽

Dear yogis and yoginis,  

Transitions are always difficult as they require an adjustment period – trying and testing new methods and ways of doing things, seeing what works and doesn’t work and keeping it up without feeling disheartened. Tough!
It does come in waves though… Sometimes it takes a complete breakdown of an old system for a new one to be born.

This is why I want to thank all of you who have been loyal to Stay Gold Yoga through these hard times and those who are being flexible through the adjustment period. Thanks to you I can try and test new ways to keep Stay Gold Yoga alive. Thanks to you I can keep teaching and sharing that which I am passionate about. Thanks to you I have pulled through the lows and reached the highs. Thank you for coming with me through this journey from our WPCA classes to the Glass House, from online yoga to Wild Yoga and to a mix of all and beyond! My heart swells with gratitude 💖

Yoga helps you ground through ungrounding times. Yoga helps you to be flexible, not just in your body, but also in your mind. Yoga will keep you focused in times when focus is hard to find. It is not about where or how we practice yoga – it’ll be easier in the quiet, so the challenge of noise is a gift to be embraced for a stronger, fuller practice. It is what happens inside, behind the scenes of this 3D body, which matters; and it radiates through to the outside, to our tangible realm. It is food for the soul.

So our weekly schedule may go through small changes as I aim to teach as many outdoor classes (Wild Yoga) as possible through the summer to make the most of this glorious weather. As the Saturday Wild Yoga was so successful – sorry to those who couldn’t make it due to the number restrictions – I will add a second Saturday Wild Yoga session at 11am if the 10am class gets full. These classes are restricted to 5 students for now so this is my offering to you so you all can benefit from our Wild Yoga at the park!

This week’s yoga

Monday:
7pm – Level 1 Yoga (online)

Tuesday:
1pm – Lunchtime Yoga (online)
7pm – Wild Yoga

Wednesday:

You can book for class here.

I hope to see you on the mat soon!

Wild Yoga every Saturday at 10am

We had our first Wild Yoga class this Saturday – it was a bit of a last minute arrangement as the weather kept changing from sunny to rainy to sunny… and it decided to be a sunny Saturday at the end!

From now on, weather dependant, our Saturday session will be held at the park @10 am – it will be a maximum of 5 students and we will all respect the 2m distance – this has been tried and tested now!

These classes are available to book on the system from today and a new class pack has also been added to use with Wild Yoga classes only.

The rest of the classes will stay on line for now until further notice.

If you have any questions or useful feedback please feel free to get in touch!

I hope to see you on the mat very soon.

Much 💛
