MAKE THE MUNDANE MAGIC.
.
Currently drinking up life off the grid and remembering all the ways I like to make the mundane magic. Slow brekkies in bed, long walks without time frames, chill afternoons of chats, not looking at technology for hours, less doing... more being. Deeeeeeelishhh!!! We've been fighting so hard for so long that this sun has stopped us in our tracks and reminded us to truly live again. Resting, healing, playing and soaking up all the goodness in our lives with a fresh appreciation sparked by sunshine kisses.
.
Change is in the winds and it's a change for the better! But, I've been thinking about you all!!! How are you!? What are you loving most about these summer days filled with endless rays...??? How are you making the mundane magic?

Big love x

Friday F L O W.
.
Some slow simple slinky stretches on my fave midi Huku X Moons @hukubalance wheel! Countering a life of over flexion WFH, limbering the sticky tight body, opening the heart a lil more but always...... feeling supported.
.
A long overdue fabulous Friday catch up with the gentleman behind Huku today - our meets always sparking ideas & igniting exciting plans.
.
In the now, I'm awaiting clarification from the government once they announce the next finalised update. Gov.ie still states no indoor classes, just FYI for those confused. I get it, it's confusing looking at what's open and what's not... ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Numbers rising keeping me compliant for the community to the bitter end. For now, I'll cook and brew and dream and plan...... for so much newness ahead. Exhausted and excited it my new baseline. Sighing over it... and yelling BRING IT!.
.
Whilst also being, always being most fully as possible, in the magical gift of this moment in front of me. There's so much to complain about but there is so bloody much to champion, celebrate and curate for later ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

All we can do is try. Everyday, show up and try to be the best version of ourselves, for ourselves and everyone we meet. Sounds simple but it's amazing how we can slip into habitual patterns that are harmful to ourselves and others. Observation allows us to catch the slip ups before they become part of our character. Meditation, taking time to better connect and notice ourselves in this life experience. Trying and having the desire to try is all we need to do really. Let's try #TuesdayThoughts

In case any of you haven't seen the news or haven't received our @moonsyogaloft newsletter... as per the government announcement we are unable to open on Monday as planned. All classes are postponed until we know more, all passes will be valid until you get to use them.
.
That's the facts. The feels are more complicated.
.
Personally... I have found this the hardest blow since day one of this thing. Whether it makes sense or not, I'm just exasperated. Through lockdown pregnancy, newborn life and navigating the pandemic alongside everyone else - the constant business uncertainty has been an extra layer of mud to wade through. So much work has gone on in the background to open/close, keep up with the updates, pay bills and there was so much excitement around this 'final' reopening.
.
My positive logic brain of course knows it's for the greater good, that we will be reopening permanently soon but... my heart needs to let go of the pretense and release the shoulds. I should be strong, I should keep face, I should be a peacon of positivity but no... that's not my style. For now I'm indulging in some good old fashioned wallowing. Tomorrow is another day x
...

Full Moon Friday FEELS.
.
Yoga Asana... affords me moments of melting into an experience of myself beyond mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend. Free flowing energy. Mindful movement as meditation allowing me to move from feeling rather than practicing with a plan. Energy in motion, through motion.
.
Dancing inwards to a sense of being, an essence of me that best connects me to the we. Not caring, not trying, just being. Being free.
.
Trees moving, wind blowing, earth spinning and my energy - a tiny spec... surrendering, merging, melting into it all.
...

Another gorgeous monthly check in with my Learn to Meditate community. Although... I need to add an ED into the name of the collective now... LearnED to Meditate. They're all amazing!.
.
I feel like the post med chat take-away is something we could all do with remembering. So here it is... It was around the idea of... Being happy with not being happy. Specifically our conversation was in response to those who reject meditation when it's sticky, funky and messy.
.
Using those messy meditations to become more accepting of discomfort in our lives. Allowing it to flow and go... rather than resisting it (whatever 'it' is) and ironically causing more suffering. Like any muscle we strengthen, the practice strengthens our ability to be more accepting. Accepting of it all. Let it flow and go Amigos - in practice and in life.

"You are my Sun, my Moon & all of my Stars", - EE Cummings.
.
Summer Solstice and International Yoga Day. Wowza. I don't think I've felt a solstice as powerfully ever before. There is such a huge energy around as the world heats up and so much agni/fire in my own belly for exciting new adventures and @moonsyogaloft reopening. As a collective we are embarking a new chapter like never before!.
.
But as I sunk into a salty hug this morning, the most prominent feeling in my body was one of pure ecstatic love. You see, last year I was cosmicly half way through my pregnancy at summer solstice - the half way mark of the year! So this year to stand without a belly but with my little best friend in my arms instead... well, it was incredible.
.
I don't show her too much on here, for many reasons. But today I felt the urge to share my most precious (at a fuzzy distance) to remind us all that - whatever we have been through, whatever is yet to come, nothing else matters only our precious loved ones x
...

Thank Y O U ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ.
.
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 โ˜๐Ÿผ) . 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 โœจ.
.
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 ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ.
.
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 ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ.
.
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 (๐Ÿคฃ) 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 โค๏ธ.
.
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.

My professional objective is to truly inspire my students through the practice of Yoga, building a trust and rapport both on/off the mat.To guide my students through an exploration of the body, breath and mind connection – in order to empower themselves against the daily trials and tribulations of life. To guide them towards more feeling, towards more harmony in the body and most often to bring more laughter and smiles onto the mat! To develop flexibility and strength whilst weaving some yoga history/ philosophy throughout our practices together. Primarily I want to help bring a little peace into our crazy world and ultimately… make.people.smile.
That…is why I created my own space, a space for Everybody where EVERYbody is warmly welcomed; Moons Yoga Loft.
