Hello Yogis

Just done my last class of 2008 and am feeling fairly chilled. It was lovely to get a bit of a stretch after not being able to do anything for a week.

Just wanted to say thank you to you all for attending class and making my first few months of teaching so enjoyable. It's been lovely to share the joy that is yoga with you all and I hope that you are already feeling its many benefits. I look forward to taking your practice further in the new year.

Classes start back on the following dates:

Monday 5th January - Ski Club level 1
Monday 5th January - Cairns Church class
Tuesday 6th January - Ski Club level 2
Wednesday 14th January - Blanefield Class

Keep the mats out and try to keep the sun salutations going daily throughout the holidays.

Have a happy and peaceful Christmas and New Year. See you all in 2009!

Xmas Meltdown

Hello yogis

If it wasn't for yoga I would be in meltdown! I find this time of the year so stressful. Mostly I think because the children have so many activities on and I am attending Xmas concerts here, there and everywhere! Bah humbug!

Anyway, I am meditating and doing a lot more pranayama than I normally do which is keeping the meltdown at bay.

I had some good feedback from some of my students about the meditation technique by Shiva Rea I posted on the blog a couple of weeks ago. So if you are heading for Xmas meltdown why not give it a go.

For those of you I did alternate nostril breathing with this morning, this is another excellent breathing exercise to keep you balanced, combine this with a bit of meditation and you should stay as chilled as it it outside!

So, look after yourselves at this stressful time of year, yoga gives us the tools to cope with the stresses of modern life. Be good to yourself and use them.

Om Shanti
