I welcome the first day of summer by attending a yoga and music workshop with musician and yoga teacher Jack Harrison.
We lie down and begin with some breathing exercises. Jack strums his guitar, recites poetry and sings.
This six-week Mindfulness & Positive Living course will be a relaxing haven amongst all the current global craziness.
During each one-hour session, you will practice mindulness & meditate, do some breathwork & gentle movement/stretching, as well as learn tools & tips to alleviate anxiety and create calm in your life.
Find a quiet space (headphones could be helpful but not essential), a comfortable seat AND somewhere to lie down (also not essential but could be lovely – have a blanket handy in that case), as well as a pen & journal. Use some incense or essential oils and/or light a candle for optimal relaxation.
The course runs Wednesdays 8-9PM from 22nd April until 27th May 2020 via Zoom.

Today I attend a Life Coach for a much-needed, sort of dreaded business coaching session. We speak about timelines and deadlines. The Life Coach draws a “To-Do” box on the whiteboard. We also discuss ideas, fears and things that are weighing me down.
I confess that I’ve really been beating up on myself lately. I’ve been comparing myself unfavourably to others, calling myself names and believing that I’m “less than”. My mean streak is at a peak.
Last night, I read Marianne Power’s most recent post on the six basic human needs. Yes, it may seem like I’ve become obsessed with this woman and maybe I have. But not in a lesbian way. In an admiring, respecting, fellow-blogger-and-self-help-enthusiast way.
Anyway, I found Marianne’s post really interesting. Marianne is regurgitating self-improvement guru Tony Robbins’ work and I, in turn, am regurgitating Marianne’s work. But we’re all putting our own spin, experience and insights into it.
Some of you will be familiar with a popular song of the moment, “Cheerleader” by OMI. Well, up until Sunday night, I thought the lyrics went something like this: “Oh I think that I found myself a cherry air.”
Which makes no sense at all but I happily sang along anyway while enjoying the sunshiney sound of the trumpet.
