It's finally here, there may even be a chance of yoga on the roof terrace.....
Why do Yoga?
It is a great way to re-connect to your true self and find inner calm amidst our hectic, busy, mental lifestyles! Taking the time to breathe consciously instantly relaxes the body and the mind and nourishes the soul. Yoga is a way to infuse your life with a sense of calm, peace and serenity whilst using the body in ways which promotes healthy movement patterns.
Classes with me are fun, informal and sometimes a little challenging. We balance, stretch, go upside down and most importantly laugh during class. The most important thing to bring is an open mind, let the yoga do the rest.

Treat yourself - summer colds
With the variable weather we have been experiencing lately, I've been receiving requests for advice on treating summer colds.
A traditional home remedy is honey and grated ginger. Ginger root is freely available from supermarkets, simply grate, pour on boiling water and leave to steep until cool enough to drink. Add a couple of teaspoons of honey, stir and drink.
Honey is antimicrobial and helps to combat the germs, whilst the ginger is a circulatory stimulant, aiding detoxification by helping the body to sweat.
If you can still find elderflowers these make a highly effective treatment for colds. Simply steep in just boiled water, covered, until cool enough to drink. Elder is antimicrobial and again aids sweating.
Natural remedies support the body in it's own detoxification process, a temperature and sweating are the body's highly effective mechanism for combating nasties. Avoiding paracetamol and ibuprofen which artificially reduce the temperature, can help reduce the length of your cold by allowing the body to utilise all it's natural defences and bring the body back to health sooner. Make sure you are consuming a diet high in fresh food and Vitamin C also.
Common sense must prevail here, if you are worried about the rate a someone's temperature is rising, or how high it is (especially a child), consult a GP asap.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding please consult a healthcare professional prior to taking home remedies.
If you would like to discuss utilising plant remedies to support your health please contact me to arrange a consultation. I make bespoke herbal medicines for individuals. Further information can be found here.
