Halcyon Days of Summer

halcon days

Namaste everyone!

I hope this email finds you well and enjoying these heady days of summer.

Now returned from my break, I am refreshed and with a brand new sequence which will launch from TODAY with the first class at Powderham Castle tonight at 645pm.

If you’ve not been for a while, or looking to get started into a routine, or even bring your younger ones who may be on holiday, then it’s a great time to start as we will be slowly going through the new moves and themes which, as ever, relate to where we are in the season.

Have a read below to see what’s happening through summer, with new sequences,  rates, and retreats…

I’m really excited about HALCYON – it’s playful. primal and wild, an expansive exploration of movement patterns, based on the very latest findings on how fascia works and how the body works in spirals. It’s like a return to our youth, like the heady, summer days of 1976, when we could probably move with a lot more ease and grace.

Just a reminder of my schedule of classes for over the summer (and the next 6 weeks)

Mondays 645pm Powderham Castle (meet in the courtyard)
Wednesdays 715am Ocean Physio
Wednesdays 930am Powderham Castle
Thursdays 645pm Powderham Castle
Fridays 715am Ocean Physio
Saturdays 10am Yoga On The Beach (Exmouth)

You can also do Amy’s classes at Ocean Physio (Mondays 715am and Tuesdays 630pm) under my system.

You can book online or throughout the summer drop in and pay cash if you haven’t booked. We usually have plenty of space outside!


In order to make classes accessible for all (I found a way through YOTB!), I am reducing the rates on the drop-in classes for the following:

All Ocean Physio classes, Yoga on the Beach and Wednesday 930am class at Powderham Castle. These will now be £8 per class and the two evenings at Powderham will be £10 for a drop-in, as these incur higher fees for me.

If you are struggling with affording classes, I would not like this to be a barrier for you, so please contact me, and in cases of financial hardship, I will see what I can do to help.


I know many of you will have students back over the summer or and that the school’s are out now.

For any under 18s or students they can come to classes for just £5 drop-in. Please note though that children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult and are your responsibility throughout the class.


For anyone that hasn’t tried it and is up for an adventure, then I have some spaces this Sunday morning. Weather is looking fantastic, with lots of sunshine and not too much wind, so it will be a great day to do it. Book online in the usual way.

6. 6 weeks of summer
For those who want to start a new Membership from today, I am offering 6 weeks of unlimited classes for £60. This would start from this week and run until September 15th 2018.


I have spaces on 2 retreats in September
* Le Wild Retreat in France – a beautiful rural location ideal for recharging in nature
* SUP SAIL YOGA – a mini-adventure onboard a sailing boat in Croatia

For details of either send me an email.

So classes will now run for 6 weeks before the Autumn terms re-starts.

Hope to see you soon back and i’ll try and bring the sunshine back in time for tonight!

With love and light, from my heart to yours….
