Thank Y O U 🙌🏼.
.
So many kind messages, thoughts and words came winging into my inbox yesterday. It would be easy to be pseudo confident about the reopening, bypassing the sticky stuff to splash about 'we're baaack' advertising without mentioning the nerves, the healing we all need to embark on and the bloody tough time we have all been through.
.
But truth and vulnerability are needed when we are all wading through this together. No one should be sitting alone thinking 'I'm still not ok' in a milliue of 'onwards and upwards' sentiment. It's important and empowering to awknowledge 'the both' as thankfully we turn the page towards brighter days. We can sit with both, it's OK to be both!!!!! Both excited and simultaneously still a little shook.
.
As individuals we have had to navigate so much... alone.... and I suppose the reason I am MOST excited about reopening is...... that we once again get to hold space together. We can help each other home, out of our homes. Let's go gently though, slowly on our mats as we open up our hearts and minds to the in-person collective once again xxx
...

July 5th.
.
Being completely honest I have so many words and feelings that I've simply gone a bit quiet on here... lost for (the right) words. Where to start!!! After an incredibly wonderful first year of business - the second... we could barely open. An incredibly tough time for us and so many studios, some of which we sadly lost. At @moonsyogaloft we have stuck hard to the guidelines, kept our beautiful space on pause but finally have a date... JULY 5th sees us reopen again. Again... which is probably the word conjuring up so many feels.
.
Nervous to allow myself to be excited yet again... Hoping this is the final REopening of my life.... Emotional at the thought of welcoming our beautiful community back for some much needed healing....we all need SO much healing. What a year. That's all for now, you know I don't like to get to salesy shouty on here but we would love your support and if you're nearer another studio that's reopening - go support them too!
.
We have new offerings, new timeslots, new teachers, the same amazing regular teachers, and as usual the breezy light everyone's welcome vibe. Mindful movement, meditation and... connection. It's time to re-connect, to reconnect in and out in every way xxx
...

I love to T A L K.
.
I love to move and talk while teaching Yoga Asana (above ☝🏼) . I love to talk to my meditation students while helping them find comfort in the... not talking! Communication through carefully curated sentences allows us to express our desires, feelings and opinions in a clear impactful way. And, when we allow ourselves to speak from a place of unedited truth...that flow state of communication... it's simply all kinds of magic ✨.
.
I've been a part of some great panel discussions/interviews over the years, but I recently recorded an unbelievablely beautiful conversation led by @bobbleheadmo with @georgie.crawford and @senenaoupu. It was the kind of magic I mentioned above. Honest, emotional, warm, topical and impactful. It goes live this weekend with my wriggle and meditation session available too. All free thanks to @FITBITUK_IRELAND and @IMAGE.IE 🙌🏼.
.
There's a link in my BIO as they say, if it sounds like something you'd like to wrap your ears around this weekend. Either way, I'm wrapping my arms around you virtually and wishing you a very happy Friday x
...

I sea you 🙌🏼.
.
I get that the outside life around us is being 'fixed' but inside you still feel broken. It's understandable.
.
It's all speeding up but you can't rev yourself up past slow. Take your foot off the gas, rest.
.
I know you don't know, you don't have a finite plan for where/how to next. Baby steps.
.
Please go gently, take all the time you need to emerge. There is no 'right way'. Have patience with those who need more time. Be kind, be accepting, to yourself and others.
.
I sea you.
...

CHANGE.
.
As we know, if we want something to change then...something's got to change.
.
Obvious, yes. Easy, no.
.
We can only assess what needs to change... when we give ourselves enough time to have a clear perspective. Time is going to be sucked away from us again quite soon if we don't MAKE time in your day to practice listening in, to cultivate perspective giving awareness. Meditation, simply being, sititng in nature - whatever way it looks for you (but also...yeah, do meditate!).
.
Even reading this post has given you a moment to pause and think (you see, social media isn't all that bad!) So...answer yourself this... if you could change one thing in your life right now, what would it be??? LISTEN to the answer.
.
Sometimes just knowing, awknowledging quietly to yourself... is the first tiny step towards creating that change you are craving/that you need. Big love to you all battling the new busy! Be radical, go slow. Mxxx.

Coming from all directions!.
.
It can feel like a whirlwind of activity has kicked off outside our doors. Reopening excitement, reconnection joy, sunshine calling us out! But I just wanted to flag that it's STILL OK TO NOT BE OK.
.
It's coming from all directions - the pull and push to return to group activity to spaces outside our protective sanctuarys. With this comes a pressure from others and feels of guilt/should from within! It's fantastic and.... A L O T. We have all been through so much and we must not forget that there hasn't been time to heal.
.
Maybe let go of the expectations you're placing on yourself & others. The demands. Observe the pressure coming from all directions and diffuse it's intensity by slowing down. Take more space in your day (maybe meditation) to check in with how you are and what you need. Say no, intentionally put your boundaries in place, choose how you step forward into this next chapter being truly informed from deep within. Notice your initial reaction and dig deeper to question if your decisions are truly aligned to your truth. That intuive wisdom will never lead you wrong. Just don't doubt it - trust it and follow through on it's sweet whisperings x.

The M O O N.

She's super, she's trendy, she's super trendy! The romanticism of the moon has long been embraced, cultivated and commercialised by us humans on the green planet looking towards it. Buuuut... whether you get lit up by the science or whipped up by the latest stylised offering... we can all agree its beautiful energy is rarely paralleled.
.
Maybe simply look up tonight and let yourself drink in its perspective giving immensity. When we consider how tiny we are gazing up to it... and how whole we are looking down from it... we can't NOT recognise the incredible sacredness of life!.

If you want to, as you want to, when suits you. Intuitively led experiences of ourselves, moving/sweating/opening / releasing. During my talk last night I spoke about encorporating your practices into your life in a sustainable way. If you have to shoehorn something in an already packed schedule... chances are you won't maintain that practice.
.
Top Suggestions: Figure out a time that works. Start small - promise yourself 10minutes of movement & see where it takes you. Keep it fluid - there's no failure if you 'miss' a practice... KEY- slide it later if you need, make yourself accountable by having it planned, scheduled in your day sometime but being under pressure to a fixed time might create resistance.
.
You are your own master and commander - it's a privilege to move so remember that and approach your movement practices from that gratitude filled place of privilege awareness. You GET to, not you HAVE to.

This morning I felt groggy. It's been a full week - abundantly wonderful yes...but also breathtakingly intense. Compounded by two drinks last night when I know one is my sweet spot (🤣) I woke up this morning like I was filled with lead. The body does keep score and I knew I needed a reset back to zero, to homebase.
.
Swimming is a spiritual experience for me because I define spiritual as anything that connects me to my spirit. I ran in the rain like a happy child and jumped in alone. As the water enveloped me I got my reset - humming and dancing in the water I found my homebase. Deeply connected to nature, reminded at every electric inch of my body that life is sustained/fueled through an orchestra of interconnectedness &........ that is always there to reach out to. I reached out, I feel bloody amazing and I'm ready realigned to step forward cleansed in every way.

Learn to Meditate ❤️.
.
ONE spot left for May's Course! These are limited to small personal group learning experiences and I WILL NOT be running one in June, as I'll be submerged in the wonderful @theartofteaching.
.
The method is... demystify, explain, experience, unlearn, learn, empower, accept and be. You'll finish knowing how to meditate independently but having the support of an international and local community and monthly meet ups to help keep you on track. This is not about acquiring it's about remembering all that we already have/are/know. Stepping forward into life more aware, connected and in flow.
.
Any questions, just shout! It's running this Tues/Wednes/Thursday from 7pm each evening. If you feel the urge fantastic, if you know someone who's in need of a nudge towards it - tag them below.
.
Have a beautiful Sunday you fantastic hoomans. Mx.

I wish I could do it for you...
.
For the last week this sentence has been rolling around my heart. In and out like a little wave lapping softly around my thoughts. I wish I could do it for you. I WISH I could do it for you.
.
I can teach people to meditate. I can help them unlearn lots of preconceived ideas about what it is they need to 'do' to meditate. I can answer questions and hold monthly meet ups to help people keep on track. I've studied for a long time in order to become certified & have a deep embodiment in order to teach from truth. But I can't do it for you. I wish I could do it for you.
.
Ultimately it's down to each of us as an individual to be rebellious in the face of 'too busy', to make time. It's our own responsibility to carve out time for self enquiry in order to respond to this life experience with more awareness. And it's our privilege to 'get to' better connect in... to better connect out. A privilege I get to help you to experience but I can't do it for you.
.
I wish I could do it for you all but you all can do it for yourself (just a few minutes a day)... which will in turn transform it all for... us all! #bethechange #conciouschange #collective #yourpower #awareness #changeiscoming Mx

Wriggling Home.
.
So many thoughts and feelings this week with #dil and #maternalmentalhealth present in my heart. Letting it fuel my purpose through process, in teaching & serving.
.
Quest: Greater connection to the source/the self/ the knowing/the home. Simply... being better mates with yourself!.
.
Pathway: Movement, Meditation & Mindful living. Sit, sit, sit with yourself.
.
The Work: Acceptance of the both, the many, the ever changing complex abundance of all spectrums of our being. Without judgment or over identification with one aspect. That we are non-dualistic, non-binary people who can simultaneously be a total mess and a fully functioning participant of life. Strong while falling apart. Crying in the sunshine. Weak while taking care of others. Angry, full of rage but grateful and full of love. Terrified and confident. Ugly and kind. Healing while teaching. Lonely but allergic to crowds. Grateful and uncomfortable.
.
We don't have to fit in a box, let's smash the box & reject ideologies that put us in it... and then sit in the debris - happy, relieved in the acceptance of it all. Knowing that it's OK to be it all...
.
... and that we ALL feel it all, no matter what you presume when you look at someone.
...

G I V E ❤️.

I've been paralysed with shock at the devestation in India. Sometimes when I feel so compelled to help I turn myself inside out, around in circles but don't know where to start!?! My evening meditation kept bringing up the word give. Just give Moons and do something small. Just do something! So, I am, and any funds raised will go directly to the beauty @yogawithmanasi who will send them directly to people on the ground in India who need our help.
.
If you are like me then this is a simple. quick. direct. way to help - click through -> gf.me/u/zsditc (also in bio) donate, and every person who donates will go into a draw for my next 'Learn to Meditate Course' in two weeks time. Even if you don't want to take the course yourself, if you win, you can gift it to a friend who does. Give - Recieve - Help.
.
We can a GIVE, a little, nothing is too small. Throw in a fiver or the price of your usual coffee. Let's give back to a country who gave us the wisdom practices that so many of us live by. It's time to give back.
.

...

BEALTAINE blessings!.
.
A beautiful celebration of bright new days to come. A cross quarter day between Spring Equinox / Summer Solstice and an opportunity to observe... with the illuminating light of summer days.
.
This is a unique transitiory time where many are rushing like moths to a flame towards reopening/reconnecting. Running towards the emerging summer of these covid times. There is a potential I would love to suggest (I always simply suggest!) ....... a potential that we often rush too much toward the external attractive light in lieu of maintaining the luminosity of our inner sunshine.
.
A lot of us have cultivated a stronger inner connection through these quieter times. Perhaps take some time this May Day to reflect on how you will maintain this inner source going forward into a new chapter (where there will be more external resourcing on offer) . How we can embrace the long awaited summer sun but keep our own fires burning bright within??? Writing, meditation, singing, dancing, yoga asana - a dedication to your own 'inner standing'... daily. committed. practices (sadhana/abhyasa).
.
How are you going to move forward enjoying the new light as *an addition* to your own regenerating wellspring of glittering inner youness!!!!!!!!!
...

What am I cooking up? LOTS.
.
And not in that humble brag or flipped marketing tactic. I'm just ready to start stepping back up....
.
I have some questions over on my stories (over!? who am I, Oprah!?) annnyway, I'd love some truth bomb responses from you legends if you have a few seconds. I want to curate what I create with you special hoomans, with you, for you.
.
Much love always on this magic Monday x
...

Question: Ready to bloom... or blooming ready!?.
.
Suggestion: Some of us are so bloomin ready for this to be over, for a return to how it was... others are excited at the opportunity we have to emerge like a new blossom - changed for good. Whatever is motivating you to move forward or if you actually just feel stuck/struck in the craziness of this last year - do it with awareness. Know yourself, observe yourself living this life a little bit more (or a lot).
.
If you need more time - notice that you need more time and be slow about re-engaging. If you are overit.com and ploughing ahead as soon as a government lift is announced - be deliberate and strategic, don't strive mindlessly. If you are excited to create shift - plan to orchestrate your desires into reality, don't just hope they happen. Live intentionally.
.
We all have a moment, a collective breath this next while to move into this next chapter with an empowering awareness that will best inform the choices you make. You have this power, so perhaps sit a while each day, a daily med to connect into this awareness. That is all it is my friends - a little me time to best use this life... time x.
.
(And yes.... These are the random thoughts that pour out of my heart when I am walking under blossoms with my babe!)
...

Mama Gaia 🌍.
.
Never have I felt more connected to you than I do now. Part of the cycle, humbled by the sense of symbiosis, passionate about honouring the sacredness of this life that you give us! Every meditation is a pathway back to our true nature, which is being with nature. Utterly indulgent throwback pic to when she was inside out west beneath Croagh Patrick between lockdowns last year!.
.
“It is this earth that, like a kind mother, received us at our birth, and sustains us when born; it is this alone, of all the elements around us, that is never found an enemy of man… though she produces the poison, she still supplies the antidote… and when life is over she piously covers his remains in her bosom.” — Pliny the Elder.

WHY?.
.
To find purpose in the process.
.
Hint; the process is the living. The every day, mundane, challenging, joyful, sad and happy life stuff.
.
Giving yourself a daily check in to accept/welcome/celebrate the process as your purpose instead of the constant strive outside yourself towards a goal orientated purpose. I can tell you, it's a gigantic relief to surrender that striving and spend a few minutes every day realigning to my purpose being the actual process.
.
Confused? Sit, be and let madame intuition feel it out for you x
