I have a rose bush in my garden.
It has been beautiful and abundant and thriving but over this last year it was neglected became pot bound and…. well just started to decline. I took it out of it’s pot and radically chopped it. Pruning is an understatement. There were no green shoots, no leaves, no sign of life. I replanted it and thought “Oh no” I’ve killed it…. but guess what? It has come back… with a vengeance, more beautiful and healthier than ever and is now in bud and ready to bloom 🙂
This little rose bush has mirrored my teaching journey over the past few years. As my confidence and strength grew so did the size and number of my classes and so did my creativity and passion 🙂 …. until this year…. when somehow I found I had outgrown my self defined ‘pot’. I stopped to challenging myself to grow and began to coast along ….
Time for some serious pruning and a new, much more spacious pot? Yes indeed!!!
So! Starting from September, I am reducing (pruning) my weekly class schedule (to Tues/Weds/Thurs) and expanding my roots to stimulate fresh growth in the form of new class styles and weekend playshops and retreats.. in Ireland, the UK and Europe…
As well as my regular style of mindful vinyasa flow I am offering 2 new classes as follows
