Winds of Change…Making Windmills

Sometimes the winds of change blow, and the only choice we have to either adapt or adjust.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been doing just that, and I am really happy to announce that I have found some lovely new venues for yoga this summer, most of which will mean we can get outside and breathe in some of the lovely, fresh prana whilst doing our practise.

The advantage of all is that I have more space. I will have mats and blocks, but feel free to bring your own. In time, I will have bolsters and blankets, but step by step..

No need to book, just drop in. ALL LEVELS WELCOME, INCLUDING BEGINNERS AND NEWCOMERS.

So, here is a little reminder of where I will be and when.

Highfield Farm

Light and Space at Highfield

Light and Space at Highfield

* Like a place of sanctuary right on the edge of Topsham on the Clyst Road. See http://www.highfieldfarm.org.

There is plenty of parking – it is also a campsite and an organic farm – and we have the advantage of beautiful views from the farm and even going outside.

Classes Starting Thursday 2nd July 2015 at Highfield Farm:

Mondays 6.15 – 7.15pm Mindful Yoga (this is a brand new class and ideal for beginners, or those looking to lose weight or de-stress).

Mondays 7.30 – 8.30pm Mind Over Matter (weight loss support and educational group)

Yoga in Nature at Highfield

Tuesdays 6.30 – 7.30pm Flow Yoga (a more energising class, based on Vinyasa Flow style)

Thursdays 6.30 – 7.30pm Flow Yoga (a mixed level Vinyasa flow class, fluid but relaxing too, all welcome)

I am also using Highfield Farm as a venue for workshops and events.

St Margarets Church

I have been both surprised and delighted at the warm welcome from our local church, and it feels just perfect to be supporting this community local venue.

The inside room at the back of the church is warm, clean, light, and especially atmospheric. It has lovely acoustics, and your view will be of the large stained glass window at the back facing the estuary.

We will be able to make use of the outside area in nice weather, and we will have a private area with view of the estuary to salute the sun!

Making the most of the Estuary

Starting Friday 3rd July 2015 9.30am Yogalates at St Margarets Church, Topsham
 – this is just over the road from the clinic, overlooking the Estuary.
Come in through the main door of the church, go through the door to your left, and turn right into the back of the church. I will be in there.
ALL LEVELS WELCOME, INCLUDING BEGINNERS AND NEWCOMERS!
I have plenty of space there, and when it is sunny and war, we will go outside.

Pebblebed Vineyard

One of my favourite venues, and a favour from Geoff for the summer, this is a short drive from Topsham, but well worth the trip to be out in nature with outlooks onto the vineyard.
Nice view

Nice view

Coming from Topsham, head out towards Darts Farm, and take a left at George and Dragon pub.
At the next roundabout, take a right onto the A3176 signposted Woodbury and Budleigh Salterton.
Take the immediate left turn into the Village Centre and keep going until you reach the school on your left.
Turn right here, and shortly afterwards turn left at the schurch (signposted Bushayes).
After about half a mile, you will find Pebblebed Vineyard. The parking is opposite the courtyard on your right, but then just walk into the yard and you will see the barn ahead of you.

Matthews Hall, Topsham

Right in the centre of Topsham, next to the fire station, the rooms upstairs is spacious and warm. There is limited parking next to the building, but you can also park on Holman Way and walk through. Ideal for those who live in Topsham and are without parking.

Enjoy coffee and a chat after class

Starting Wednesdays 6.30pm from 8th July Mindful Yoga (this class is for all levels but has a specific focus on quietening the busy mind and bringing the body back into balance)
Then Tuesdays from 14th July 2015 at 9.30am Yogalates (all levels welcome – NEW CLASS)
The room we are using is upstairs, there is the advantage of having a cuppa afterwards downstairs. It is a nice room with plenty of space and light.
This may only be a temporary venue until the summer is over, and then I may use St Margarets Church.
ALL WELCOME, BUT ESPECIALLY BEGINNERS AND THOSE WITH LIMITED MOBILITY.
