I had such a wonderful time at the Autumn Reflection retreat day last week. It was beautiful to work with the aspects of slowing down and letting go, both in the physical body and through meditation. I thank you for such positive feedback and I'm so happy that it has brought so much benefit. Don't worry if you missed it, there are still a few spaces left on the Chakra Workshop which is our last day retreat for this year. All details can be found here http://www.victoriayoga.co.uk/chakra-workshop.html
Please join me in wishing our Yogi Tom a huge well done on completing the Shine Night Walk Marathon for Cancer Research. What an amazing achievement! Here is the link if you would like to donate https://fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/page/toms-giving-page-146
Lots of nice shoulder opening and releasing in class this week I think!
A big thank you for all the lovely feedback on the Beach Retreat meditation that was recently published on Insight Timer. I've been blown away by its reach to people all over the world, some of whom now use it on a daily basis. I've been very humbled and grateful by how many people, including those I have never met, have taken the time to write some really lovely reviews. Insight Timer is a free App that you can download to your device and then explore different meditations from teachers all over the world for free or with an optional donation. Here's the link to my Beach Retreat meditation if you have not managed to listen to it yet https://insighttimer.com/VictoriaMinasi/guided-meditations/beach-retreat
Just a few advanced dates for the diary:
There will be no classes Thursday 1st November - Tuesday 6th November
There will be no class Monday 3rd December
The last class of the year will be Monday 17th December with the Special Christmas Yoga by Candlelight Charity event on Tuesday 18th, details of which can be found here: http://www.victoriayoga.co.uk/yoga-by-candlelight.html
A reminder that all classes are currently fully booked and there are people who are desperately waiting for spaces. Therefore if you have a space in a class you are required to pay monthly, at the beginning of the month, regardless of whether you can make all the sessions or not except for in exceptional circumstances. Payment not made by the first session of the month may result in you loosing your space. I do of course try to accommodate people to join in alternative classes if any sessions are missed. If you booked in for September sessions, then your booking is automatically carried forward into October unless you have let me know otherwise. If you no longer want your space, please let me know so I can offer your space to someone who is waiting. If you wish to be added to the waiting list, please let me know and I will notify you when a space becomes available.
Please remember that yoga is about working with your own body, there is no pressure to keep up or even have to do everything if it doesn't feel comfortable. Yoga is progressive and if you give your body time, and focus on the relaxation, all the other parts (strength, flexibility etc.) will fall into place.
If you have any questions or queries, please feel free to contact me.
Peace and blessings
