Letting Go

letting go (banksy)

Today I woke up with sore feet. Why? Well, last night I danced for several hours at a 5 Rhythms class. I previously wrote about 5 Rhythms and how this was one way of getting out of my comfort zone this year. Sometimes the 5 Rhythms teacher gets the participants to explore different ideas or feelings through movement. Sounds a bit tricky when you read it in black and white, but it is in fact as difficult or as easy as you want to make

Is it just me?

Is it just me or is litter really, really annoying? I spend half of my life in the Cotswolds and half of my time in London.

Organisationally the complementary health sector is a mess in

Comfort Zones

5 rhythms

Comfort zones are an interesting one – in January of this year I decided to try something new and started a 5 Rhythms class. This is definitely a good way to experience discomfort and push through it! I remember the first class – I spent the first 15 minutes “warming up” extensively before starting to get into the swing of it; not long after I was lost in the experience. What is 5 Rhythms? It is a meditation through movement that involves five distinct phases
