Mini practice - 20 minutes or less

Warrior 2 into Sideways Stretch

In under 5 minutes you can feel stronger and more connected with the earth, I certainly did.
Warrior 2 (the clue is in the name) and sideways-stretch  (guess where you should feel this pose) combine perfectly together to form a mini sequence appropriate for a quick wild “yoga” session.
Complete with walking boots and a warm coat, no mat required
Enjoy

Ardha Chandrasana with a gate (and trikonasana part 2 )

Whilst out and about for my daily exercise, I thought I could make a few yoga shorts combining yog-asana with my walk.
This came naturally after the previous Trikonasana post.
Ardha Chandrasana is divine when it is supported, you can use a wall at home and have your back against it.
Please make sure that what ever you choose to support you, that it is doing just that; safe, secure and you feel comfortable.

A walk through Trikonasana … with a gate

Whilst out and about for my daily exercise I thought I could make a few yoga shorts showing how to combine a practice and walk.
This gate was perfect to support both Trikonasana and Ardha Chandrasana (the next clip).
If you decide to start your own (out in nature, supported practice) please make sure that the gates etc are secure and safe and that you are not putting yourself or anyone else at risk.
That’s the mum talk done. Get out there and enjoy…
Look after your self. Stay safe 🙂

Tadasana up Trencrom

It’s important to get outside, especially during the shorter winter days.
This practice was one of those crisp January days, bright sun, biting wind.
When it is cold it’s good to feel your way gently into movement and see how the body responds.
There are just a few poses in this practice with a little more reflection on Tadasana (Mountain Pose), in my walking boots as the ground was way too soggy for a yoga mat.

Enjoy, listen to your body.

Love and light

If you have high blood pressure or are having to be mindful of your back it is advisable to keep your arms down.

Just a little side note, Trencrom is only 175m above sea level, Watch Croft is apparently the highest being 225m… sorry for the mis-information x

Sea where I teach

There is no instruction with this film, it was way too windy.
I thought it would be nice just for you to see one of our “home” beaches. Standing poses are presented here with a modified sun-salutation.
If you would like me to draw you some stick figures to go along with the video, pop me a message and I will email them back to you.
