The little tree that could! Hadn’t truly noticed this lil sapling til this morning, tucked away cosy next to the hedge & taking shelter from its elders. Sure is a day for some S H E L T E R - the morning temperature on my 🐶👣 said 4 degrees, with a “Real Feel” of minus 5 brrr brrr brrr ❄️🥶! It’s unseasonably cold so do wrap up well & warm but also 🤸🏽‍♂️K E E P M O V I N G🤸🏽‍♂️. And, if you can, as this has come along so early & unexpectedly, donate old blankets, food, cash whatever you can to local homeless & animal shelters - mind yourself, help others 🧘🏽‍♀️💕🙏🏽

Do you know my friend Elsa (@ecocozazou)? She’s the one in the middle, grinning from ear to ear. I’m so happy I got to teach several fundraising yoga classes on her rooftop to help the @keepachildalive organization (look at those smiles!). She makes everything possible ☄️ She’ll be speaking this Sunday about climate change.

Last night we experienced yet another example of just how amazing our community is - a full class of yogis who raised over $500 to be donated to @love146 -an organization that works to end child trafficking across the globe. We are truly touched by your generous donations and kind hearts. A special thank you to those who could not make it but donated anyway! Pictured here: Teacher Jill with local DHHS students who formed their own club to benefit this organization - our studio worked collectively with these ladies to ensure an amazing turn out and a successful event. #seasonofgiving #yogaforchange #love146 #stopthetraffic #shorelinect #clintonct

This time of year, when I’m feeling the lethargy creep into my body, my self care looks different. I don’t necessarily want to go for a walk or take myself out for a pedicure. I crave solitude; depth. Last night I sank into a candlelit hot epsom salt bath. Magic.

Hopping into bed with a good book on a wet, cold wild night in 🇮🇪Ireland🇮🇪 is always a nice end to a Yogi’s day 🧘🏽‍♀️. Even better is when it’s the brand-new fabulous #AccessibleYoga book by none other than the wonderful @jivanaheyman - well done Jivana, what an accomplishment 👏🏼As another wonderful teacher that I have had the pleasure & privilege of being guided by, #donnafarhi says on the cover, you are “a living & breathing testament of what Yoga, capital Y, is all about”. #yogaoffthemat #calm #flexiblemind #yogalife #yogi #heart #book #read #grow #learn

I’m almost done editing “The Flexible Golfer” course, which will be live for you soon! One of my favorite quotes in the process is from #craigdavies , which says “the most effective way to improve a golf game is to improve the quality of the body playing the sport. As players earn better control of their bodies, it becomes easier to improve the technical part of their game because they have more movement options available.” Yoga is such a great way to do this!!

✨ Charity Meditation ✨ Monday 11 November 8-9pm @ Broadlands Farm, raising money for Brain Tumour Research 🙏🏼 A few weeks ago I received the devastating news that a beautiful lady passed away after her courageous battle with a brain tumour. She attended my yoga classes a couple of years back, & since being diagnosed fell in love with coming along to my crystal sound baths. @melaniechinnick was a beautiful soul. Inside & out. She was SO gracious & brave & full of gratitude. If there’s one lesson I’ve learned from her over the years it is to be grateful for every day. And to SMILE. My goodness she had the best smile in the world. She could quite literally light up any room. So this one is for you Mel, and for saying a big F YOU to brain tumours. You will be so missed & always loved. Please come & support this essential charity. Everyone welcome, no matter what meditation experience you have. Your donations will be so gratefully received ❤️

• LAST TRAINING OF 2019 • We begin our work with the Afghan community at Malakasa in collaboration with @refugym_ TOMORROW! • This will be our first ever training in Farsi and our last training of 2020 • See what they posted in anticipation of our arrival below • Sanaz is a long-term REFUGYM volunteer who was here this spring and summer facilitating the Cirlce Of Hope: a healing yoga practice for women to explore self-care, guided by Sanaz's mindful conversations and gentle hatha practice - all led in the camp's language of Farsi. • As REFUGYM is run by refugees for refugees, a wonderful woman from the community, Zahra, took over the circle. • Now Sanaz is back with @ompowerproject, who will be training a group of women from the camp community in trauma-informed yoga. They will be trained as yoga teachers - not just for REFUGYM, but for their own personal communities. • We can't wait to roll our yoga mats out and get learning! • To support this work, please consider donating via the link in our bio 🙏🏼 • • • • #ompowerment #yogaforrefugees #yogaheals #standwithrefugees #karmayoga⁠ #refugeesupport #traumainformedyoga⁠ #yogafortrauma #yogaforchange #bethechange #uniteforchange⁠ #thisisyoga #payitforward #yogateachertraining #communityempowerment #communityled #womensupportingwomen #empowerment #strengthincommunity #empoweredwomenempowerwomen #refugeeswelcome #sportsforrefugees #womensupportingwomen #traumainformed #healingcentered #yogaeverydamnday
