It’s that time of year that it’s all about LOVE, but why does love just need to be of the romantic type, and limited to couples.
Love is a state that can be achieved by anyone, it’s a mental, physical and emotional state, and it’s contagious! If we want to see more love in the world, we start with ourselves, and sharing it with others around us.
Valentine’s Day is a lovely celebration, but let’s face it, it’s not for everyone, especially if you’re on your own.
This year it’s all about Galentine’s Day, which is the day before, and it’s all about celebrating our female friends and the love we have for each other.
When us women come together, in loving awareness, we are a powerful force for good!!!
So what’s it all about?
Galentine’s was originally created by a fictional character in the US series Parks and Recreation, but it soon caught on amongst real-life women looking for an alternative which still celebrated love, but was for all gals, no matter their relationship status.
What a great excuse to celebrate the sisterhood, and the magic we create as women when we support each other!
So this workshop is all about love, for within us women, we have an abundance of love, don’t we?
We want to share it with each other, and we want to spread it around? Yet sometimes we miss the bit out which is loving ourselves!
And this is where it starts.
So why not join me around the virtual fire of supportive women, who have all got each other’s backs, who are all accepting of each other, just as we are, and feel that love for the day.
We will start with a group meditation, then do some oxytocin-boosting, mindful and kindful movement, finishing with some nourishing and nurturing restorative movement, all with the intention of sharing a space of love and acceptance with each other.
I’ll be sharing with you some of what I have learned from Nikola Tesla about energy and vibration, and all about the Love Frequency, and how it could help heal us and the planet.
All you need to do is bring yourself, just as you are, and together we will foster the kind of love we all deserve through our practise together.
If you think that the world needs more love right now, then the best thing we can do to affect that change is to embody love, to “be love”.
Let’s do this together
PS If you would like to bring a friend for free, then just get your ticket and send your bestie the details and you can do it together.
Spring is around the corner, and the new dawn is breaking.
This month we will continuing with weekday morning classes live on Zoom 8-830am to set you up for the day!
February is all about seeing the “slivers of light”, the little gimmers of hope that we can find in nature and within ourselves. We don’t have to see the whole picture yet, just keep focusing on the small joys, which can be those motivational mornings to kickstart your day. If you don’t commit to anything else, but the morning ritual every weekday, you will soon start to feel the light return!

Wednesdays 630-730pm Hygge Yoga – a cosy and nurtuting practice using somatic movement, and slow flows, to build self-awareness, raise oxytocin levels and boost the mood throughout winter
Saturdays 9-10am Rainbow Warriors – a family-friendly, uplifting practice with myself as well as other Guest Teachers, suitable for all levels, using nature as our teacher and celebrating love in all it’s forms

What if we all started to celebrate Christmas early this year?
I’m thinking we start now, and we all start making decorations, we get our homes filled with lights and colours, we start baking some goodies, we get the mistletoe up, and we start getting festive.
Over the past two weeks, I’ve even started watching cheesy Christmas movies, and I find myself soaking up all the warm and fuzzy, feel-good chemicals that come from a happy ending and a bit of love and romance.
I guess if I’d wanted crime, political intrigue, tales of lies and corruption, to be scared out of my mind, I’d just watch the news. I try to relax with something that actually makes me feel good. This just makes sense.
I should say, this is completely out of character for me. Christmas is usually a time of year I dread, and mostly avoid, except for doing something for charity and going down to Exmouth beach to watch the swim.
This year though, I’ve been inspired by a friend of mine Claire, who goes “all out” for Christmas and starts getting excited around September. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if she spends all year looking forward to it. I think we all need a bit of that enthusiasm at the moment surely?
I remember being back in India and the Divali celebrations (the festival of lights) being so magical. All the light and colour brought joy, happiness and something really special each year. It was like Disneyland for all the family, and a feast for the eyes.
When I spoke to my class this morning, I asked them how it was back in the UK.
“Gloomy”, was the answer I got, almost unanimously.
So I tried to bring some colour and light to their day, but I knew it needed more.
I’m thinking making personalised stockings, gingerbread houses, tree decorations, and putting lights everywhere! What has happened to me?
I realise that I might be missing home, and all the things I used to avoid, I’m feeling oddly nostalgic about.
Walking around Dubrovnik the other day, I saw the lights going up on the Stradun, and I wondered who was going to be switching them on and whether I should go along. Then I had a longing to be in Topsham or Exeter with friends, drinking mulled wine, wearing furry boots, woolly hat and scarf, and feeling all romantic.
I guess that’s not going to happen this year for many of us, as we face quite a different kind of Christmas that we are perhaps used to.
In many ways, some of the pressure is taken away, expectations will be less, and I certainly hope that we realise that it’s not about the giving of presents, but more about presence. Maybe we start to see that “less is more” and that the making of the stocking is more important than the monetary value of the goods that go in it.
Maybe we will come to appreciate the value of human connection, of love, and of taking care of one other, and remember what Christmas is all about.
One thing is for sure. We could do with something to celebrate right now. An array of light and colour around us surely isn’t going to go amiss. And if all else fails, the movies are there to remind us that miracles can happen at Christmas.
