Overwhelm? 5 steps towards re-balance.

Are you overwhelmed? Are you interested in a FREE ten minute meditation you can listen to, to help you re-connect and gain perpective? Read on... Sometimes we all have 'off' days. Sometimes it lasts longer than that. Something just doesn't feel quite right and we reach a state of overwhelm... our mind doesn't want to stop thinking, and ironically it stops our thoughts from being clear.

There is work to do, maybe little people to look after, maybe older people to look after. But who looks after ...

Calmness, peacefulness, relaxation. "I could do with that!", people tell me, when I say I am a yoga teacher or talk about my practise. I also sometimes get the response "Oh but I am not flexible enough to do yoga.". Posture practise, which has commonly become known as 'yoga', is only one part of it..
