We all wish to live a happy life. Meditation shows you how to be happy with No 'thing'. But how do we practice meditation? There is much information available however, without guidance, it can be a baffling experience.

The aim of the course is to demystify meditation and to highlight the powerful effects that this simple practice offers, in such a way, so that everyone can bring it into their daily lives.

The course will introduce various practical techniques to guide you and get you set up with your meditation practise from the very first session. This will include filling in daily practise diary.

Awareness to breath will be paramount. You will be learn deep diaphragmatic breathing and other cleansing and powerful breathing techniques which will have a transformational impact on your general well being.

We will discuss and explore various approaches and styles to meditation, enabling you to chose a path that suits your personality and your life style.

You will embrace, not only life, but yourself differently as you embark on a wonderfully positive journey of self-discovery.

By the end of the course, you will have experienced and understood the incredible impact of meditation on your life.

New Year 💗GRATITUDE 💗and ✨PURIFICATION ✨
all-day workshop

Saturday 13th January 2018

Thank you so much to all of you that expressed an interest in the Christmas workshop.
However many of you were unable to attend as y
ou had understandably committed to other Christmas events.

I have therefore decided to offer the workshop on Saturday 13th January 2018 instead of December.
The same schedule applies with a little more emphasis on purification and detoxification - of the liver in particular (we will all definitely need it by then)😋.

I will also be working with the power of gratitude as we enter another new year; instead of waiting for the new year to be thankful, how about being thankful for the new moment instead?

I also believe instead of waiting for the new year to offer heartfelt 'happiness’ to all around, that ,THIS present moment is the one we should all feel thankful and truly happy for. Happy New year?….. most of you already know that ‘happy new moment' is always 💞my motto!

I have taken time to organise a rather special day for you all filled with wholeness and good health.
I shall be leading the morning session of yippee yoga asanas and breath work pranayama. I will be working on strengthening and toning, releasing and deep cleansing the entire physical system together with a powerful detoxification of the mind as we combine invigorating asanas with the transformational power of breath.
The three hours of yoga will ensure that you have sufficient time in between the asanas to enable full restoration of body, mind and essential self. As the morning draws to a close, there will be time to indulge fully in a lovely long and well deserved relaxation.

Please note that this session is suitable for all levels of practitioners.

I have arranged for the food to be cooked by Alex Salour whose dishes combine wholesome and healthy grains and pulses using subtle yet delicious flavours of fresh herbs and nuts such as almonds, pistachios and pine nuts for instance. There will be a super tasty hot vegetarian/gluten free meal available along with some other very delectable accompaniments. Refreshments of home-made herbal teas/coffee/water, biscuits , gluten free cakes and fruit will be all be provided.

During the early part of the afternoon, I have invited the very lovely Laura Mitchell who has an established international career as an opera, concert and recital singer.
Laura works using a combination of her voice, gongs and singing bowls which together resonate the most wonderful vibration thereby stirring gently your inner vibration. Both a cleansing and balancing experience, it fits in perfectly with our theme and as such, I have invited Laura to offer her beautiful gifts to us all.
I have attended a recent workshop and was instantly transported on a rather beautiful journey. It is indeed, in Laura’s words, 'a hypnotic musical journey which awakens the senses and inspires the soul'.
Laura has over twenty years experience of yoga mantra and ten years of yoga teaching and therapy; she is a sound practitioner dedicated to creating an east meets west fusion sound experience which weaves voice and instruments together in a wholly unique way.

Following the sound experience, I will lead you all into a peaceful final meditation to include Tratak and crystals which is beautiful way to conclude the day.There should be time for a little cup of cuppa and slice of cake those of you who wish to stay.

Come join us for this New Year special: remember no new years resolutions lists are ever necessary. Simply present yourself to the present moment and let yourself BE. All that you wish to resolve will be resolved simply by living from a place of TRUTH.

If you are interested, please contact me as soon as you can so I can make the necessary arrangements. As always there is a maximum intake based on first come first served. Any special food requirements just let me know!
Concessionary rates available please ask me.

christmas 2017workshop:
the meaning of a truly💗happy💗 christmas


I am writing to offer an all day 🎄Christmas🎄 workshop on Sunday 3rd December 2017.

During the Christmas season in particular we speak and sing about peace, love and joy.
Ironically, however, we tend to build up quite a lot of tension before Christmas day, ensuring that everything is super organised in order to have a ‘perfectly peaceful, loving and joyful' festive period.
In addition, there tend to be many a late night with a (slight) over consumption of food and drink which can impact the natural balance of the system. The mind can flit between rajasic (over active, reckless, lacking in focus) to tamasic (heavy and dampened, lacking in energy).
This can also sometimes be a time when we compromise what we a truly want to do: we say ‘yes' when we want to say ‘no' and vice versa.
With our never ending list of 'things to do’ before 25/12, we can be a little neglectful in looking after the all important number one person during this time of year: you.

I have taken time to organise a rather special day for you all filled with wholeness and good health.
I shall be leading the morning session of yippee yoga asanas and breath work pranayama.
