All About You

Shakespeare once said ‘What’s in a name?’

In some ways a lot…and in others, not too much. But with time, we all grow, change and revaluate.

Today, is All About the Om’s 3rd birthday (where has the time gone!?) and I have been thinking about why I became a yoga teacher, what I love about teaching and what I want to be able to offer my students. 

Unsurprisingly, I love yoga. I love the postures, the movement, the way you can feel both emotionally and physically. But I also love the fact it’s about taking some much needed time for you. It is in fact, All About You.

So, some of the eagle-eyed amongst you may have started noticing that there have been a few changes on my website and social media over the past few weeks and this is to reflect the changes I am making to my humble little yoga company. 

So, without further ado…welcome to 

ALL ABOUT YOU YOGA
by All About the Om

This change in name reflects what I feel yoga is really all about. YOU. 

I have always loved helping my students feel good about themselves, encouraging them to take time for themselves, and I feel that this change in name encapsulates this.

I really hope you love it as much as I do, but please, please let me know your thoughts.

And….if you don’t already, please do follow me on Instagram. Perhaps you are unable to attend classes with me, but would like to help a little independent business? Like, share, post about ALL ABOUT YOU YOGA, as every little, really does help.

Thank you for taking the time to read through all my thoughts and I really look forward to seeing you on the mat again (there’s still time to sign up to Monday class, if you would like).

Namaste

Yoga mat

I love my Form yoga mat!

They are so pretty, high performance and sustainable. What’s not to love!

Form create the awesome circular mats like mine and also beautiful rectangular ones.

I love my mat so much that I have become an affiliate partner for Form.

You can take a look at their range of mats here – https://bit.ly/2R2FL7j

All About the Om at Fromie Gifts

I am so, so excited to announce that the wonderful Fromie Gifts in Frome is now stocking the gorgeous All About The Om sweatshirts.

As part of the range that Nicky who owns the store is selling, is an exclusive light grey version of the jumper, which you can only get in store!

Nicky is also running a competition for people to share their New Years Intentions for the wall in the shop. One will be picked at random and that lucky winner will get a pass to one free yoga class with me!

They are also doing a cool new intentions wellbeing box which you should totally take a look at! https://fromie.co.uk/collections/frontpage

In the moment

Oh, beautiful lights!

It’s the little things that can make us smile and feel happy.

Allow yourself to stop a moment and appreciate what’s going on around you.

Life is so hectic and I know it’s so hard to stay in the moment, but every now and again, give it a try.

I loved being at the Longleat Festival of Light over the ‘twixmas’ period. Seeing the joy on my niece and nephew’s faces at the lights and following the characters.

Happy new year!

Teachers’ Temple

I had the pleasure of recently attending a teachers’ temple day retreat with the awesome Steffy White. The event was held at 42 Acres in Shoreditch which was such a gorgeous venue – just the place to take some time to look inwards!

As a yoga teacher, sometimes your own practice goes out of the window a little as you strive to create the best classes for your students.

So this retreat was just what I needed.

Starting with a strong flow sequence, we built up a sweat and got moving. Then the retreat moved to more inward looking activities – Why did we choose to be yoga teachers? How do we really feel about being a teacher? Time to reflect.

A bit of a silent disco got us losing some of our inhibitions and getting our boogie on! (Also, turns out, it’s a really good cardio exercise!)

We even got to try some Acro Yoga which was a lot of fun!

Whoever you are and whatever you do, remember, it’s so important to look after yourselves.
