Celebrate dearest,

as the winter solstice has just been and the days are starting to get longer.  Also worth celebrating is your effort to keep up your regular yoga practice over winter.  Therein lies your growth.

To keep you motivated and engaged and because you asked for it, I have put together a step-by-step tutorial on how to get safely into Tripod Headstand.  It's over on the blog 'Tripod Headstand - Your Ultimate Tutorial'. You're going to love it as it can be done in a number of safe steps, suitable for your energy levels and experience on any given day. The calm and introspect energy of winter beautifully supports this wonderful yoga pose. More over here...

Classes and treatments continue throughout the school holidays.  Your 10-class pass is not bound to the term, and we all want to keep up our yoga practice during winter.  Remember, that's your growth.  If you have secondary school-aged children, you are welcome to bring them along to any yoga class.  In the first week of the holidays I will be teaching and in the second week Jen will take all classes, as I take my family up to Cairns. You know Jen from teaching the Saturday classes and coming to her own practice Thursday nights/Friday mornings. You are in for a treat.  A bit about Jen here and further below.


Safe travels if you are going away. Otherwise, see you on the mat to keep the winter ills at bay.
