Jump Into July!
Hello All, I hope everyone is having a fab day and is looking forward to the Summer months ahead.
This month we are mainly in the season of the star sign Cancer, with Leo coming in from July 23rd. Change is in the air, both personal and worldwide, and we can all certainly feel it! Within the energy of Cancer, take time to nurture your inner child and just play. Whether you spend time in nature, stick on some great music and dance or spend time laughing with people you love, do what brings you joy and take time to be a little silly. Being able to access our inner child helps to bring a lightness to the darker times.
This period can bring heightened emotions. But remember in these moments, what triggers us also helps release us. Yoga teaches us to peel back the layers to reach the true nature of the self. Allow any emotional triggers you may experience to teach and shed light on where you need to grow, rather than cause upset. Grounding yourself in your yoga and meditation practice will really serve you in this time. If that’s not your bag, walking barefoot in nature, gardening or anything else along those lines will allow you to maintain a connection with yourself and your roots on the earth.
In July, we have a full moon on the 5th and a new moon on the 20th. For more information on how to energetically sail through both of these cycles visit Elysium Holistic Therapy on Facebook and inquire about joining the Moon Bath Facebook group.
July brings new beginnings for Calm Within Yoga, as my beginners classes commence on Monday’s at 6.30PM and Wednesday’s at 7.30PM. These will be taught from the beautiful Saints Green Place in North End, North Essex. Both classes are currently full, however please do contact me if you wish to be added to the waiting list. I also have my ‘Evening Flow’ class for general practitioners on Thursday evenings which is currently being taught by Zoom.
I will be teaching toddler yoga via Music Bus from this Thursday, and I am delighted to announce that I will be running the yoga section of the Elysium Holistic Therapy Gong Moon Bath’s when they begin to start up again as the lock down restrictions ease and allow. These are ran twice a month in line with the lunar calendar and they include yoga, meditation and gong. They are a beautiful way to embrace all of the wonderful lunar energy with open arms. I also get to work along side my greatest spiritual teacher, my kick ass mum. Stay tuned for more announcements as to when these will begin.
I will leave you with this quote from American author Gail Sheehy, which encapsulates this time that we are all collectively sharing at the moment:
‘If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living’.
Wishing you all of the sunshine for this coming month. With Love, Light and Best Wishes,
