Yes, I am riding on the coat tails of Valentines day and all its cheesy smaltzy hallmark rubbish. But its a really good reminder to dwell in the heart more. And once we are comfortably dwelling there, maybe we can live from it too. Find a path and a life that fulfils us.
A gentle, compassionate practice exploring the heart energy that resides within.

Glastonbury venue Beat Hotel will travel to Marrakech, Morocco for a wide-ranging festival going down at the Fellah Hotel, March 28th through 31st.
And I will be there leading yoga in the day - and probably wheeling about the dancefloor at night. Life is all about balance people.
A yin practice often alters time and space - come and explore time and space in between Christmas and New Year, often a period of limbo. An opportunity to come back to yourself and your body.
3 hours of yin in the homely setting of Wild Wolfs, St Nicholas Street, Bristol.

Yoga . Mindful Eating . Facial Massage . Healthy Lunch . Meditation
As the winter evenings draw in and your mood drops like the leaves off the trees, we welcome you to reframe your Autumn mood. If you’re feeling sluggish, ready to hibernate or hide in thick cosy jumpers then why not join us for a day of pure nourishment and restoration for the body and mind. Drinking tea, building community, yoga, meditation, massage and mindful eating all combine to help you detox your body and mind and restore your wellbeing ready for Autumn.
After your welcome tea, Pip will guide you through a sequence to work with the seasonal energies of the large intestine and lungs, helping the body to breathe and eliminate what no longer serves... physically, mentally, emotionally. Let go as the practices slows from flow to find stillness in yin, just as nature does at this time.
After a short juice break, we sit down with Ollie who understands that when you’re busy, tired and have limited time, it’s easy to grab food from the nearest location or default to a takeaway or ‘healthy’ ready meal without considering what is the most nutritious option for you. At times, it may be cravings which find you turning mindlessly to foods such as chocolate, biscuits and crisps to manage negative feelings and emotions. And then when you’re eating, you guzzle it all down, without stopping to chew or taking the time to really taste and enjoy your food.
During Ollie’s workshop, you’ll learn how to choose meals that nourish you and support your energy levels throughout the day, as well as manage your cravings more effectively. You will also consider how to enjoy your food more mindfully, which will benefit you physically, mentally and emotionally. Practise what you have learned with our delicious vegan, mindful lunch.
Now your body’s feeling nourished, let’s move onto the skin. With the winter nights drawing in you may find your skin looking tired and dull. Do you miss that natural glow from the summer months?
Using natural oils Jade Jasmin will guide you through a self-face massage routine on how to improve the appearance of your skin and keep it nourished through the change in seasons. Jade will teach you a step by step routine, so easy you’ll be able to do it at home, self-massage will bring oxygen to the blood cells, help with lymphatic drainage and remove waste from skin. Leaving you with improved tone, texture and your friends asking you how you keep looking so good throughout Autumn!
Finally, to finish off the day, nourish your mind as Rachael guides you through a Reiki activated sound and meditation journey. Tune into whats safe for you to release now and allow your whole being to re-program bad habits, negative thoughts, and re-imprint positive affirmations helping to increase self-esteem. Just as the Autumn branches let go of their leaves so gracefully at this time, you will let go of all negativity and leave feeling calm and at peace.
If you feel like finishing the day with some arts and culture then you are more than welcome to check out Kreativ House's current Exhibition with Rollvndo, from Dover Street Market.
All levels welcome.
