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 insight’s 30.11.20

This week starts with a blast, a full moon in Gemini with a penumbral eclipse today, opening eclipse season.
The energy is usually high around the full moon, which affects us in different ways. Some may feel drained and ‘burn out’, perhaps overdid it; some may be riding the energy wave high up and are able to keep going… How are you feeling tonight?

This eclipse happens in the north node of the moon, so we have let go of something already and this is a time to move forward. We are given the chance to see a new point of view, a different perspective on something we’ve been pondering since last May, with the new moon in Gemini. This eclipse is bringing us clarity after a moment of darkness. We may not notice this today or tomorrow, but at any point until around January 30th 2021.

North node eclipses bring us choices and opportunities. Tonight we are given the choice to tune into our inner knowing, the part of us which knows that we are the ones creating our own realities.

We usually want to charge our crystals and do our rituals during a full moon, but not during an eclipse. An eclipse is a time to be receptive, without any intentions or expectations, allowing the darkness to unfold into light and just being able to see what is revealed.

At tonight’s Moon Flow Yoga I will guide you through a special full moon eclipse Yoga Nidra after and slow flow practice. Opening the body and mind to be able to receive without expectations. You can book for tonight’s class here.

🎄🌲Fully biodegradable Xmas wreaths 🌲🎄

We are busy at the Glass House making our beautiful, fully biodegradable Xmas wreaths so you can have them ready for Xmas! We use all natural and responsibly sourced materials. These may slightly change from week to week as we make sure everything is used and upcycled. As these wreaths are hand-made to order, each piece is unique. Each wreath’s diametre is approximately 45 cm. These wreaths will stay fresh for over a month if sprayed with water daily. To order one of our wreaths contact us here.

Making your own wreath is a very grounding, meditative and creative practice. Think of a 3D mandala as you build layer after layer of Xmassy colours and textures, not to mention the yummy scents! We will be holding online workshops via Zoom (with a couple of in person slots if the lockdown rules allow!) on December 6th, 13th and 20th. These workshops last a maximum of 2 hours with a short break and you can book your place here.

So bring on the fairylights and the winter fires and the scents of warm spices and citrus – looking forward to a more sustainable and less wasteful merry Xmas ✨🎄✨

This week’s yoga and astral insights 02.11.20

Hunter’s moon

We are still feeling the effects of the powerful Hunter’s Moon in Taurus. This moon is pushing for change, bringing a very strong energy as we are being put in situations that demand radical changes. How do we deal with change emotionally? How do we cultivate trust?
Learning to be in the moment allows us to let go of depressive thoughts – attachment to the past – and letting go of anxious thoughts – worry about the future. Although it is true that everything is constantly changing – the only constant is change -, our long held sense of security, perhaps illusory to a point, is being challenged right now as we are having to change the way we live, work and be with others. Our own self-constructed and contidioned limits and boundaries are being challenged and we are being pushed to create new ways. May we find our new ways and hold eachother safe through our own trials. One thing we need to remember is that, this instability right now, is also going to change. We will get to the other side!

Mercury is goin direct tomorrow. Yay! But hold on if you have any important comms pending, wait for a few days. When Mercury starts going direct, it stays stationary for about three days. Mercury stationary can be even more tricky than Mercury retrograde, as there is no movement at all. On top of this, Mercury will square Saturn (planet of rules and limits) until November 10th, which will make negotiations and communication difficult… so be prepared!

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!

Much 💙
