Standing Strength Workshop – new date!

Sadly, maintenance works at the upcoming workshop venue have run over schedule so I’ve had to move the date out to the 9th December.  This does mean that more spaces are now available so please email or call me if you’d like to book a place.

More information about this and the Relax and Unwind workshop in January can be found HERE.

What’s on offer….

I’ve been making a few changed to my yoga class times so thought I’d just do a quick update on what I offer where at the moment.  Some classes will stop during the summer holidays but I’ll post a few videos on Facebook so you have something to work on if you want while school’s out for the summer 🙂

Monday 6:30pm – hatha flow yoga – a stronger class combining postures with movement and breath designed for yoga practitioners or those doing regular exercise.  See Classes page for more info.

Tuesday 7:15pm – gentle hatha flow yoga – a slower hatha class with some flow elements that’s suitable for all.  See Classes page for more info.

Thursday 6pm – mat-based pilates – an all ability class focusing on increasing strength with a core focus as well as improving range of movement.  See Classes page for more info.

Friday 6am – outdoor sunrise yoga – breathing exercises, hatha flow and meditation to kick start the weekend.  See Facebook for updates.

Hatha Flow Yoga Coming Soon!

From mid-March 2017, hatha flow classes will be running on Monday and Friday evenings in Deal.

These are beginner classes suitable for newcomers to yoga as well as those who have an established practice but simply want to try a different style of class.

Flow yoga is a dynamic form of yoga that brings together different yoga postures with movement and breath to improve strength, posture, balance, body awareness, flexibility as well as the many other health benefits yoga practice brings.  The classes include some time for reflection and relaxation so are a really great way to start and finish your week.

Picky Eaters New Year Special!

January can be a challenging time of year.  The excitement of Christmas seems long gone but the prospect of holidays and nice weather is still far away.  Perhaps the holidays brought with it a few too many ‘celebrations’ and now it feels like an up-hill struggle to get back to healthy eating?

So to help, I’ve put together a 15-day Picky Eater Challenge to help get you and your family back on track!  Follow the daily tasks and challenges that are designed to help encourage the more fussy and faddy ones in the family to eat healthily too.

For day by day details on the challenge follow me on facebook here

Tips for success

  • If you don’t have unhealthy food in the house, you can’t eat it!
  • Children are more likely to participate in healthy meals if they’ve been included in the decision-making – give choice and encourage variety
  • Encourage your child to eat just 1 piece of vegetable or salad at each meal
  • Get together with the friends you spend most time with and make a pact to all try to eat better in 2015
  • Limit snacking 2 hours before main meals to encourage them to eat their veg
  • Encourage a bit of exercise before meals to help build up an appetite.
