Newsletter - September 2020
How have the last 4 months been? What have we seen about ourselves?
For me it has been a chance to slow down. I saw how attached I was to my “comfort zone”. I really missed teaching you and realised I was to meet the enormous challenge of the INTERNET so I started Zoom classes with Karuna, my daughter. She was a great help in getting over my fear of the internet. It has opened so many digital (&other) doors.
Give yourselves time to see what is holding you back. Is it your ideas, beliefs, prejudice & attachments? A helpful indicator is to see what we are avoiding or afraid to look at and make excuses about why we “cannot do that”.
All we need to do is let go. Let go of “I can’t” thoughts, let go of your “comfort zone”. Whatever your God is; your higher self, the God within, divine spirit, truth, love. Then put that 1st.
You know when we practice fist thing, the whole day is affected. The yoga practice, if practiced whole heartedly, can take you straight to your higher self.
There is a great strength in practising in a group.
Well done those that managed to Zoom in on a Saturday morning (9.00am – 10.20am for yoga and then pranayama, meditate & talk until 11am), this class will continue. First class is free and then £8 per week, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to join.
It will be a great pleasure to teach you in person!
We are back again in the Beaconsfield Hall* on Wednesday 9th September at 9.45am and John’s class starts up again on Monday 7th September at 7.30pm at Asthall Manor. We are hopefully starting a new class in Beaconsfield Hall on a Thursday at 7.30pm.
