It's coming up to the end of September and the children have been back to school for a few weeks now so inevitably I have caught a head cold from one of them. Every down dog feels like my head is going to explode so I decided to take a day off from yoga - not a full one though that would never happen...... One of my gorgeous teachers kindly covered my morning classes and I arranged to go for a walk to clear my head.
I met up with some of my girlfriends for coffee and a natter, then two of us ventured out for a stomp along the river. Melissa is a good friend of mine and also runs her own business, providing business owners with PR and Marketing skills, she definitely knows her stuff..... www.campfirecommunications.co.uk
Anyway, we started chatting about where our businesses were at this moment and ways in which we could take them further and develop ideas. I struggle with being disciplined enough to write a blog on a weekly basis and this is an area that I really would like to work on.
So that is my intention for this week and going forward, I'm going to get my act together and start blogging... I might start bleating on about random things and go off on a tangent every now and again but my business tag line is 'YOGA FOR NORMAL PEOPLE' and that is what i am going to write about.
How many ladies feel like they are going to suffocate themselves with their boobs in plough?
A lot of yoga teachers who you see online and in magazines (and in some studios) are bikini body perfect types who can bend into all sorts of unimaginable shapes, but in reality how many of us actually look like that and who can bend like that? I don't and can't!
How many binds are elusive to people because they have a wine/beer belly?
Keep checking in with my blog and each week I am going to look at different postures, giving options for 'normal people'. After all, yoga at Yogabomb is accessible to everyone, regardless of age, size or ability. we all have our strengths and weaknesses, I have great upper body strength (for a girl) and a bendy back but my shoulders are tight and my arms are short (my excuse for not binding). You don't have to be skinny and bendy to do yoga, just willing to give it a go and if that means adapting a posture for your body shape then that's fine too.
It's all yoga baby!
