Progression and Cycling

written by grace

Another GTY yoga course has finished and it was amazing tosee the individual progression of everybody throughout the course.

Walking on the moon!

written by grace

Namaste, Just over a week has passed since the London Moonwalk 2010 and my body is just about mine again! The atmosphere within the main arena was amazing and it was great to see so many women (and men) in a sea of pink.  The bra designs were excellent and featured anything from flashing lights to florescent hands.  [...]

Another month [...]

Posture of the month

Crow

The crow is one of the most beneficial of balancing poses that helps to develop the mental tranquillity. It increases the powers of concentration and aids the removal of lethargy.
