Hello beautiful lovelies

So the end of this year has brought me many new suprises which I look forward to sharing with you in my upcoming newsletter.

I'm looking forward to the Christmas holidays now - its been an amazing year - one that reconfirms to me that you really do never know whats coming up around the corner. Magazine appearances, high street demos, Beginners and YinYang Workshops, Outdoor garden Yoga, Vinyasa Flow, Hot Yoga, new studios, cover teaching..... My teaching experience has continued to broaden, my connection to the practice as deep as ever and an ever growing sense of gratitude for this wonderful life and these lucky opportunities.

Up and coming for next year are more workshops - namely 8th January 2017 another Complete Beginners Workshop to enable more people to begin their yogic journey ! I love that the power of yoga is spreading wide and far and I hope that it has the desired effect; to realise how connected we all really are and how love really is the way forward for the human race.

The Connective Couples workshop on November 25th was totally beautiful - a joy to teach and witness and it got such positive feedback, that I look forward to the next one, especially in time for Valentines Week - save the date - 17th February 2017.

I will be in touch in the next week or so with a copy of my newsletter and offerings of the exciting next chapter of this, my dream job :)

I hope Christmas helps you to reconnect with the most important things of all ;

Love, Peace and Unification

Happy Easter one and all! Ok so the level of chocolate going on in this house is nearing digusting. I recently read an article about being a 'bad yogi' and forgiving yourself such sins, so have taken this as an intervention from the universe not to beat myself up about it too much. It has however, spurred me forward to write a kick ass detox sequence for class next week.

So the mellowburn adventure continues onwards and upwards. I have fast learnt that one things for sure in this yoga teaching business, you cannot predict ANYthing. I mean when you think you're getting nice and cosy in a teaching schedule, you can bet your bottom dollar everything will change in the blink of an eye - so its important to stay adaptable and flexible. I have covered anywhere and everywhere and its fabulous when it creates new connections and experiences to learn from. It humbles me when new opportunites continue to be placed at my door and I'm forever in awe of my students continued faith in me as they appear and reappear at my classes. To share something so positive that I'm told over and over again is changing peoples lives for the better, makes me very happy indeed.

My newest teaching opportunities since I last blogged, involve a stint in Pirbright covering a fantastic little class of 'country yogis' ;), an offering to lead some workshops in Cafe Mila Yoga Studios in Godalming, and a great job teaching regularly at Aveda Hair Salons in Central Guildford. They have put together a luxury studio space for an intimate class, including mohair blankets and underfloor heating - tres posh! I'm delighted at the opportunity to teach a yin/yang blend which I believe will be the only class of its kind on offer in Guildford!

More excitment comes from my regular teaching gig on Thursday evenings at Peak Fitness Gym in central woking... They have had so many complaints from students that there wasn't space in my class, that they have added an extra class! My ego is in tact I promise - but I am thrilled!

I continue to cover at Surrey Sports Park now and again, and it goes without saying that my beloved Mellowburn Classes continue on as a growing community of yoga lovers and general lovelies.

I can feel my teaching has evolved so much - thought I'm forever excited to look forward to sharing new poses and transistions between poses, not to mention the ongoing thrill of seeking out themes, guided meditations and yoga styles to share. We do so love to explore in class and sometimes I'm as suprised as the next person about what comes up! It is brilliant to watch everyone fall further in love with their own practice and progress so beautifully. Lots of photos on my facebook page of students in wierd and wonderful poses if you're interested:

So if you're reading this and you haven't ventured forth to a mellowburn class yet, I promise its worth a try - I mean, well I would say that, but from the feedback I get, I feel confident that its worth an hour of your time to see what its like! Hope to see you matside - love n' peace, Mel x
