Spring News

It looked like spring had finally arrived when I first went to write this newsletter and yet now it seems hard to believe! Wow it’s been a long winter this year. This winter season can be a great opportunity to slow down, but for many of us this also included periods of coming to a complete stop due to some nasty viruses going around and severe weather conditions. After such a long period of shorter days and now grey wet weather again, it can be incredibly challenging to get motivated. I know this is true for myself. However, we can also use this as a positive opportunity to reassess how we look after ourselves, through diet, lifestyle choices, meditation and yoga. Spring is associated with concept of new beginnings and is the perfect time of year to nurture your aspirations and future intentions. This can only be achieved if we look after ourselves, by cleansing the mind and making way for fresh possibilities It’s also one of the best time of year to cleanse the liver and gallbladder and with these longer days the opportunity for the light to disperse the darkness.  

There are so many new and exciting news to share with you all. With new classes, workshops starting The Yoga Being family is expanding. All happening perfectly in tune with nature itself.

So what’s new?

• The lovely Lisa Donnachie is now offering a Thursday morning Hatha flow class from 9.30-10.45am.

• There is a new Sunday morning class starting on May 13th with the brilliant Gabrielle Gant. The time for this is still to be confirmed.

• I am delighted that the studio is also expanding its classes for our little ones too. We will be offering a Baby Signing Class on Monday mornings with 2 Little Hands and Me. Jennifer Hopkinson is currently teaching in Fareham and Locks Heath, so expanding out to us here in Gosport. To book please visit

The other very important news I want to share is what The Yoga Being will doing to help a local charity. The date is to be confirmed, but I have every intention of raising money for Max, who is a very brave 11 year old boy who has undergone many surgeries due to an aggressive brain tumour. I invite you to join us on one of two separate days at the studio where we will be practising 108 Sun Salutations. To sign up the cost will be £15 plus you are more than welcome to get your friend and family to sponsor you so we can raise as much money as possible for Max.

As you can see there is lots to share this time and as always cannot thank every single one of you enough. Without your commitment and support The Yoga Being would not be thriving as it is. I will keep to my promise to bring you as many great opportunities for a variety of workshops, classes and holistic treatments this year, which will support you live a healthy, happy and conscious life.

Much love
