How Yoga helps me take care of myself as Winter draws in

The latest update from CJYoga includes Mindful Flow and Parent and Child Yoga classes in Hassocks this November

A friend recently recommended an artist to me on Spotify and I wanted to share her music with you because I love the lyrics. It feels as if each song contains lots of little mantras and wise words of wisdom which settle within me in an uplifting and reflective way. Click here to listen to Fia.

‘I forgive myself because I’m doing the best I can.’ Fia.

What a beautiful message and reminder that we can only do our best.

Sometimes we don’t get as much done as we'd like, or feel how we want to feel. And we can make that harder for ourselves by trying to fight against it.

I’m learning to listen to the signs my mood and body give me and take more rest instead of trying to push on with all the energy of someone filled with sunshine, warmth and Vitamin D. So I’d love to know what your self-care tips are as we head towards Winter.

Yoga is my 'non-negotiable'.

That first half an hour in the morning, when I slip out of bed and patter onto my mat is the one time in each day when everyone and everything else gets put aside.

That time is just for me.

I move. Think. Feel.

It's where my mind slowly wakes up.

Where my body begins to warm up and ease into the day.

It's how I connect with what I'm feeling and what I might need.

It's like plugging myself into a charging point and welcoming energy to flow in.

That’s my self-care. I very much hope you find an offering that appeals to you to support you through this next season.
