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!

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.

Safety-distanced Wild Yoga is back!

Dear yogis and yoginis,

I am over the moon to announce that I will be holding our first Wild Yoga session of the summer on Saturday June 13th @Whittington Park, 10am. I am hoping to continue throughout the summer as we have done for the last two years!

These are some simple rules to follow in order for these sessions to be safe and successful:

  • Bring your own mat / props and hand sanitiser to the park with you
  • Respect the safety distance of 2m from other students and myself
  • All adjustments and instructions will be verbal
  • If you are feeling unwell with cold / flu- like symptoms, please do not attend this class and choose from the many other online classes here
  • These sessions are capped at 5 students so book early here to avoid disapointment!
  • And last, but not least: enjoy the fresh air and sunshine while you practice yoga – bliss!

And for a post-yoga beverage / snack… rumour has it that our beloved Whittington Park Cafe is now open!

Looking forward to seeing you – on the flesh and on the mat!

Much 💛

Astral insights

Hello it’s eclipse season! Lets get ready!
We have a total solar eclipse on July 2nd followed by a partial lunar eclipse on July 16-17th…

What does this all mean?

A total solar eclipse happens when the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth at the right angle and alignment to cover the whole of the Sun’s surface. In this particular eclipse the Sun is on Cancer. Cancer is the sign of the home, where we feel secure and grounded be it our physical home or the ways we have identified with creating a home. An eclipse brings changes to those affected so this may mean a literal change of home or a change of our meaning of home, changing our approach to creating a home, a different way of feeling that security… A Solar eclipse is usually linked to new beginnings.

A lunar eclipse happens when the Earth comes in between the Sun and the Moon. in this case we have a partial lunar eclipse in Capricorn. A Solar eclipse always comes followed by a lunar eclipse – note that Capricorn is the sign right opposite Cancer, as the Sun and the Moon are in opposition (the Sun is still in Cancer). Capricorn is the sign of family and career, so to those affected there may be changes in these areas of life. Lunar eclipses are usually linked to releasing and letting go.

Here’s last week’s mantra from Kaypacha:

Sometimes I simply need to withdraw,
From the madness going on,
To create, protect, and hold the space,
Of my peaceful, loving home.

Introspection and finding answers inside, best to use this time to prepare for the eclipse season and smoothly welcome any coming changes. You can watch the whole report here

Enjoy!

Much 💛
