30th July 2015
After the walking meditation last week I was hoping to move out of the Bandstand and take full advantage of the summer sunshine in the beautiful surroundings of the Garden Theatre. Unfortunately heavy rain was forecast and as Sunday dawned it was obviously going to be a wet one. Hey ho! With the bandstand to shelter us at least I don’t have to cancel classes just because of a bit of inclement weather. Wonderfully, eleven hardy yogis turned up to enjoy the class. The bandstand kept us dry and reasonably warm although I was glad I warned people to dress appropriately. The temperature has certainly dropped dramatically and it’s a bit of a shock now we’re used to “normal” July conditions and wearing skimpy summer clothes. Thanks to all who turned up, including Paula and her two lovely twin nieces. They are both brilliant yogis and showed me up, even slipping perfectly into the lotus posture. Oh to be eight again!
There’s no class next week because I’m doing CPD at the YMCA for ante and post natal yoga. I don’t have any plans at the moment to teach pregnancy yoga but I want to be sure that pregnant and new mums can be integrated safely into my classes.
Looking forward to seeing everyone back in the bandstand on the 9th August. I’m hosting a private yoga party at my house in the afternoon and then covering classes at HASWA on the Monday and Wednesday mornings. I’ve got plenty to do studying the YMCA handbook and planning classes – definitely no holiday for me but very enjoyable all the same. I am learning so much and am incredibly grateful to everyone who allows me the privilege of sharing yoga with them. Thanks too to Geraldine who is officially my first private one-to-one student. We enjoyed a lovely 90 minutes of yoga together and you can read her very kind comments on my Testimonial page.
Don’t forget donations to First Step. I’ve nearly reached my £300 target so thanks to all who’ve helped with that. If you’d like me to run a class for your club, office or just for a group of friends (a yoga party maybe?) please let me know. Everything I do this summer is on a donations only basis and it will all help First Step to support local families with children who have disabilities.
