YOU NEVER KNOW HOW CLOSE SOMEONE ELSE IS TO THEIR EDGE

?

It’s a difficult time. Many are struggling.

?

Being in lockdown, there’s nowhere to run to from our own difficult emotions.

?

It’s easy to reach for the short-term fix.

?

The bottle of wine… the frozen dessert… the JustEat app (again)… binging on Netflix… or endless doom scrolling.

?

Actually all we have right now are small choices.

?

But small choices can be powerful.

?

Drinking more water.

?

Consuming less of the stuff that gives you a hangover.

?

Giving yourself permission to take time out and cry, or nap, or whatever your body calls for.

?

Know that many others are having a tough time. Talk to them about it.

?

And know that this will pass, the sun will come out, and we’ll at least be able to do some more expansive things outdoors, eventually.

?

Here’s a nice grounding yoga class for you or anyone for who might find it helpful (feel free to share it).

?

It’s an edited version of the yoga class I taught last Wednesday, all about connecting to the support of the Earth.

?

This class isn’t suitable for total beginners as I’m not demonstrating every single pose and there are hard abdominal exercises… it starts nice and slow and then leads onto a little flow.

?

If anything doesn’t feel right for you today, skip that pose and move onto the next one. Or message me if you want a recommendation on a simpler session.
