They have stocktake, and they couldn’t move it. Disappointing! But you can still get your yoga on at home, or in the park. Some great home practice ideas here. And here. And some restorative yoga here. Have a great week.

So, you know I am leaving for retreat today right? I can’t POSSIBLY have mentioned it before. I’m not looking forward to it or anything. Cough. Not at all. All is in readiness, the Light Up Your Life books are printed (by the wonderful Tanja, who has helped me immeasurably with the admin for this [...]
Suzy Taylor and I think the same way. That’s why we often work together. She believes in sovereignty too. As, IMHO (okay, maybe not so humble) all good teachers should. Also, she’s funny. I like that. Read on to find out EXACTLY what she thinks: A yoga practice is an individual thing. It is about you [...]
This guest post by my friend Jenifer Parker came out of the conversation we had after my bunfight. This, she tells me, is how she’d express her views on being a yoga teacher, and the lateness thing.

For years, the forward bends just seemed a better option. When [...]
People often ask me what I am reading, and there’s usually an embarrassed pause while I try to figure out what, exactly, I AM reading. Do blogs and Facebook count? I can’t remember the last time I read an actual book. OK, I can – it was Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell, and I read it [...]
J. Brown recently popped this blog post onto my Facebook feed with the comment: where is the line between yoga and porn? He’s a thoughtful guy. I’ve been reading his essays for years, and I tend to agree with most of what he says. I also like that he’s a reformed show-offer and honest about [...]
I know one very effective way: Action. I’ve found this over & over: fear can freeze you up, or you can use it to galvanise you into doing something about it. We are often afraid of things till we do them, then they are just things we can do. I have a long-time private client [...]
