July already!? I PRAY the weather has improved as my birthday is imminent! (57). That’s really got me thinking. (You do think more ahead as you get older, as there is less of it!) Since the last blog, I’ve held the Embodied Yoga Principles (EYP) Workshop and it was a knockout success.
One of the most satisfying events ever. Marketed for no more than 10 ladies – as it is intimate work.
All women were perfect to be there. Utterly receptive, and a joy to work with, they ‘got it’ completely, and were not afraid to share (a lot of the best embodiment work comes from brief discussion in pairs (the debrief), as it cements what they’ve just done physically. (briefly - it’s taking Yoga practice – the psychological aspect ‘off the mat’ and into real life, serving you as you wish for any occasion you need it).
In fact, it’s not just Yoga, but Tai Chi and Martial art influenced also. I’m getting so excited for the future with very clear ideas about where to head.
As decades pass, we tend to look for different experiences, so I’m happily taking complimentary courses to offer my client base the same. This means the Club now caters in a very holistic way, for every aspect of health, and this so suits many of us anyway!
Personally, I am actually very relaxed about exercise (I stop completely, no problem at all, if on holiday say, and have clients who EASILY do more than me!). But I love ‘a bit of friendly competition’ and metabolic stuff! So now as well as a fully equipped Gym with really nice unusual equipment, a great variety of classes, and a lot of iron, we’re also providing gentle workshops in EYP, beautiful discussion on life and health with The Bean and Banter (where weight and fat loss are the least important of our concerns), and, coming up in July, Nordic Walking to get us out of the studio and into the amazing countryside right on our doorstep.
My mission is to get as many as possible into weights, protect our bones and bodies, minimise impact work and start to blend and fuse what is already at my disposal. Look out, lots to come!
