Urdhva Dhanurasana (Upward Bow Pose)

Summer is here! Phew, it feels like it has been a long time in coming this year so for us July is all about getting outside and embracing all that the British summer has to offer – trips to the beach, swimming in the sea, outdoor yoga classes, watching the sun setting and the sun rising, picnicking with friends and family, bike rides and evening cliff walks enjoying the smell of the honeysuckle, fresh and abundant vegetables and soft fruit, bbqs and laughter, festivals and camping, live music and dancing. This month is all about having fun, enjoying the abundance in all life and creating more happy memories.

My Favourite Spiritual Books

I have been asked recently for some personal growth book recommendations.

Skandasana (side Leg Stretch)

I do not know about the rest of you, but I am absolutely delighted that Spring is almost here. It feels like it has been a long time in coming with all the seemingly endless wet weather we have experienced recently.

Thrush and treating it naturally by Primrose Matheson

I was asked to write some articles about some of the more embarrassing ailments we have to deal with through our life. This was one of them and like all things that you speak about openly and head on, you take away the power they have to embarass or make you feel awkward about . Remember, they are things we all have to deal with at one point or another…

Pose of the Month – February – Emma Després

Opening the heart with backbends

With Valentine’s Day appearing middle of the month, February is all about love. Often when we think of love, we think of our love for others, or their love for us; we often forget about our love for ourselves.
