Practicing Gratitude... Even in Challenging Times


Hello Beautiful People,
 How are you? 

So... we head into another week of uncertainty. 
Another week of working with limitations.... both internal and external.
 Another week of breathing through our fears. 

For me this week has felt a little more gentle, the more I am able to surrender to circumstances... the more I am able to work with what IS.

Amongst looking after house, dogs and baby, and many, many, many phone calls and messages with friends and family- I have carved out some time to be creative. I've been writing (a book- more on that much later!) and updating my yoga channel, cleaning things up, refreshing things, revisiting what I hope to say as a teacher; and playing with a better camera and mic (woo hoo!). There will be a higher quality of videos heading to you in the coming months and I'm pleased about this :) 

It's very easy to bang the drum of positivity when all is going well, to stay dedicated to spirituality and self development when life is happy and fun. But I find these qualities of more use now then ever. Now is the time to lean into all the practices that serve you. Now is the time to look after your body, take time to meditate, practice self love, love for others and gratitude for all the things that are going well. Because even when times are terrible there is always something to be grateful for- Even if it is just your own perseverance and strength.

I invite you to join me for a gentle and relaxing yoga practice to cultivate gratitude. It was shot outside in the sunshine a few weeks ago- So I hope you enjoy this virtual vacation and can imagine the sun on your skin and the sand under your toes as you practice to the sound of the sea.  These things haven't gone anywhere- they are right there, waiting for when all of this blows over.  

I hope this message finds you, mustering that inner strength and finding reasons to be grateful of all that life has offered you, is offering you right now; and will offer you in the future.... I am off to write a gratitude list- maybe you wish to join me?!

  Namaste,
  :) s

Bed Yoga- A gentle class for a great night's sleep...

  Hello beautiful people, How are you? Today I am super happy to share a bed yoga class with you :) Bed Yoga: A Gentle Practice for a Great Nights Sleep https://youtu.be/jNl6ofLGrPE I. Love. Bed. Yoga! To take a little bit of time, first thing in the morning or last thing at night, elevated on your own comfy mattress, dressed in your pyjamas to do a restorative and relaxing sequence seems to make for some truly yummy self-care time!   I've created a whole course of Bed Yoga classes that I have released on my Patreon site- and there are still some more in progress.   I hope that you enjoy this session and that it helped you to unwind and sleep wonderfully. Namaste, :) Sacha  To support yoga with Sacha, access special online content and monthly live sessions become a Patron at: www.Patreon.com/yogawithsacha Find out about music, retreats, one to one sessions and much more at: www.YogaWithSacha.com

Last Days of Jan...

    How are you? Welcome to the final days of The Morning Ten- your invitation to practice 31 days of yoga (including meditation and mantras)... even if that simply means practising for just 10 minutes a day :)  In these last sessions the invitation is to round things off and integrate :) Many goals and intensions begin in January and I know all to well the feeling that one has fallen off the wagon or become lost in old patterns once again- so now is the perfect time to practice self-compassion and take a moment to observe what your experience has been so far this year and to use the lessons life has brought you and the lessons from your heart to re-dedicate yourself to whatever is important to you- Realistically, honestly and lovingly! A few questions to reflect upon are: What have you learned this January? Is there anything you would like to integrate more deeply? How does your yoga practice support you? Are there any gentle goals or intensions that would support you going forwards?

31 Day Yoga Challenge week 2 :)

  Hello lovely being :)  How are you? Welcome to week 2 of The Morning Ten- your invitation to practice 31 days of yoga (including meditation and mantras)... even if that simply means practising for just 10 minutes a day :)  Within myself I am still feeling very much in a post x-mas cloud! It feels hard to find the time and the motivation to accomplish very much in these days... but it is like that sometimes isn't it?!  Younger versions of me would probably have tried to 'push through it', but this time I am attempting a different strategy- to breathe into it, to practice self-compassion, to take all non-essentials off my plate and ride out this phase knowing that another one will start when the time is right.  It is such a profound thing to be able to accept things as they are and to take many slow deep breaths. So if you have been keeping up with the challenge so far then well done! And if you have not then that is also just fine :) Dip into the sessions below if/when you
