OK winter, we’ve had enough now!!!
.
I’m sure, like me, you’re finding it difficult to find the motivation to get up and shake off the heaviness of winter…...Yes, this Kapha season is dragging on a little now.

That’s what happens, you’re not alone. Kapha - heavy, slow, cold, moist...sounds just like the weather doesn’t it?
.
So what do we need to do to shake-up Kapha? We need to get it moving. .
Sleeping beyond 7am? You’ll definitely feel sluggish. We’ve got the perfect antidote...join Livi for ‘the perfect start to your day’. Livi’s back teaching her regular Ashtanga class on Saturday morning and starting next Thursday - 28th February, she’ll be teaching a 7am Vinyasa Flow class.
.
We can’t promise you the beautiful sunrise pictured here in Livi’s recent teacher training trip to Goa, but what we can promise you is the positive effects of and early morning Yoga practice:
.
Kick-start your circulatory, digestive and immune system. Start your day - ‘all systems go’.
.
Mental clarity throughout the day. Shake off the brain fog and heaviness of Kapha. Take advantage of your most productive time of the day. .
Start your day feeling happy….just try it to feel the benefits.
.
It takes a little discipline at first, but even Aristotle said “Through discipline comes freedom”.
.
Join Livi for her early morning classes 8am Saturday and 7am Thursday. .
Here’s what else is on at the studio today:

9.30am Hatha Yoga for All

10.45am Postnatal Pilates and baby massage

7pm - Monthly Kirtan. Join Rabecca to experience the powerful healing, uplifting and meditative benefits of the chanting of sacred sounds and mantra.
