You can do ANYTHING!

Welcome to my first blog post on the new incarnation of the Great Malvern Yoga website. I’m so excited! Way back in 2014, my work colleague’s 17-year old son built the first website for me and it has been great for all these years, but I decided it was time for a change so I built a new one. I wanted something a little more modern. I really, really hope you like it! *clapping hands together in glee!*

In actual fact, it was more or less ready to go in January, but then the usual January rush of new enquiries and students ensured that it got firmly moved to the back burner. Then coronavirus happened and everything changed! EVERYTHING! To say that this period has been difficult for everyone would be an understatement. More about this in a subsequent blog post.

Anyway, the whole reason for this blog post was to tell you that you can do ANYTHING you put your mind to! I had a rudimentary knowledge of websites when I started this project, having administered various corporate ones over the years, but I’d not built a website from scratch since about 1999 when I used Dreamweaver (shout me if you remember the original Dreamweaver!) to build a directory of all the websites I liked at the time. Thank goodness it’s not in existence anymore – it was seriously *cringe*!

Is there anything you want to start doing that you’re not currently doing? A project you want to start? What’s holding you back? Where is the fear coming from? Making space for this sort of self-enquiry is a great way of discovering how you really feel. Taking a walk in nature, meditating or writing in a journal are all great ways of working it out. And remember, you can do anything you put your beautiful self to! Energy flows where the attention goes.

Chocolate & Tahini Cookies

I’m still working my way through that bag of buckwheat flour.  My mum is always baking something and there’s always something good happening in my friend Sarah’s kitchen too.  I keep jealously looking at these photos of marvellous creations on Instagram and then suppressing my urge to bake something by telling myself that I don’t […]

A slow, meditative, morning yoga class, that gently stretches the deeper muscles, joints and fascia in your body and helps quieten the mind.

Description

In Eastern traditions, Yin is a compliment to Yang. Yin yoga compliments a more dynamic yoga practice because it can add new qualities. Softening, letting go, backing off and allowing the breath to still the mind are all gifts of a yin practice. Holding postures is an important aspect of the practice, allowing your body release to gravity and through the use of breath and relaxation.

Class Structure

By switching on the parasympathetic nervous system, this practice helps reverse the effects of stress and cultivates a sense of equanimity and relaxation. The class will take you through a series of poses that are held for a substantial period of time (3–5 mins).

Entry Requirements

All poses have modifications, so this class is suited to all levels and ages. Since poses are mostly floor-based, wear warmer clothes and socks.

Tips for setting up your home yoga space.

    Practising yoga at home doesn’t come naturally to some of us, whether it’s finding a quiet space or having enough ceiling height to get your hands above your head (me), it’s definitely been a learning curve over the last month.  I am so impressed and grateful for everyone’s willingness to adjust and adapt […]

Buckwheat & Chocolate Muffins

Does anyone else always have half a bag of buckwheat flour in the cupboard, or is it just me?!  This recipe is not vegan – but pretty sure you could use flax eggs and non-dairy chocolate – when I make it, this is what I will be doing. INGREDIENTS (makes 12 MUFFINS) 225g buckwheat flour.  […]
