New year yoga news

A few changes afoot this year…

 I am pleased to announce that I will be stating a new Restorative yoga class at All Saints Church Hall, North Baddesley on Thursdays 7-8pm. Places are limited to 6 pupils so booking is required. The cost will be £40 for a 5 week course, with the first course starting on 29th January 2015. If you’re not sure if Restorative yoga is for you, I will also hold a one-off taster session at 7-8pm on 22nd January 2015 which will cost £8- again booking is required. There’s more information here on Restorative yoga.

My usual Hatha Flow class on Thursdays at All Saints Church will move to Monday evenings 7-8pm beginning 19th January 2015.

Due to studio hire cost increases and to keep in line with other classes at the studio, my Neal’s Yard class on Wednesday mornings will now be £8 drop-in, or £35 for a 5 (consecutive) week class pass.

Happy New Year!

The Moment

The moment when, after many years

of hard work and a long voyage

you stand in the centre of your room,

house, half-acre, square mile, island, country,

knowing at last how you got there,

and say, I own this,


is the same moment when the trees unloose

their soft arms from around you,

the birds take back their language,

the cliffs fissure and collapse,

the air moves back from you like a wave

and you can’t breathe.


No, they whisper. You own nothing.

You were a visitor, time after time

climbing the hill, planting the flag, proclaiming.

We never belonged to you.

You never found us.

It was always the other way round.
