Spring Awakening

Spring awakening with Yoga

March 2022

Hello beautiful

I know it’s been a while since my last newsletter.. but I’m back with some fresh content and announcements and I will be sharing regularly each month. I hope you’ve been doing well despite all the constant changes and that you can find safe sanctuary via your practice. The main thing I find that truly helps, in the constant fluctuation and chaos, is consistency – keeping your practice alive, staying on your path, it gives us stability and sense of grounding we all need so much these days. I have a mini Spring ritual here for you, that comes from an old Slavic tradition, information about my retreats in 2022, my upcoming events and a delicious recipe. I hope you enjoy. 

Spring Goddess awakening 

Winter is finally fading away. We will officially welcome Spring on 21st March and I have a mini ritual for you. It comes from my homeland, from ancient Slavic traditions, bringing back fond childhood memories.
Each year on Spring Equinox we used to go down to the nearby stream to drown Marzanna (Morana) – the ancient goddess associated with winter’s death, rebirth and dreams. In this ritual saying goodbye to Winter we would clear and cleanse any thoughts or feelings we are ready to release, opening up for the renewal. The death of Marzanna at the end of winter, brings the rebirth of the Spring goddess. Through this ritual we can symbolically release the dark days of winter, celebrating the victory of life over death and the spring rebirth. 

You can make your own Marzanna from twigs and straw and decorate her with flowers and herbs then send her down the stream with your intentions.  


The last two years made us pause and limit our travel plans, but now it finally feels like we can start again. I will be offering two yoga retreats in 2022 and I hope they will tempt you in.
My first retreat is happening late spring – May 14-19th in the stunning Tuscan villa, with guaranteed sunshine and delicious home grown food. A perfect way to rest in nature, taking time to go in, away from the everyday busyness. The farmhouse is nested away from the city, surrounded by rolling fields and located on an extinct volcano that was sacred to the local people. With a medieval town of Monteriggioni nearby and local springs, there’s plenty  to do on top of practising yoga in a beautifully decorated and fully equipped shala. This 6 day retreat will be a perfect opportunity to reconnect to nature and to deepen your yoga practice.

Here’s what’s included:
Yoga twice per day – dynamic morning vinyasa structured around the elements of EARTH, WATER, FIRE and AIR
Soothing evening Yin and Sound (with Alchemy Crystal Singing bowls) allowing you to unwind and enter states of deep relaxation and restoration. Seasonal homemade and homegrown delicious food. Bonfire night. Herb foraging and making own oils. Option to organise a trip to local springs, free time or wine tasting in nearby town. We can even organise extra horse riding! And the sunshine will be guaranteed. 🙂 Picture warm evenings gathering together around the table to enjoy food and conversations with fellow yogis, allowing the body and mind to fully appreciate the time away.
I still have a few rooms available starting for £800 pp – you can get in touch to get more information and check it out here

My second and final retreat of 2022, will be in Morocco late September/early October – please message me if you would like to receive more information.
I can’t wait to host these special retreats for you.

Moments of sweetness..

Here’s a playlist I have created recently. Did you know that our fascia responds directly to music? For me structuring a class together with the playlist is key. I believe in healing and moving power of sound, I hope you enjoy this one.

If you fancy a YOGA WORKSHOP my next Arm balance + Inversions will be on Sat 23rd April 2-4pm in Yoga House Catford 

And to finish on a sweet note, here’s a simple recipe of a very delicious raw vegan chocolate mousse – a must try!
You will need:
1 ripe avocado (medium size)
3/4  cup of plant milk
1/4 cup of dates *soak them before if they are hard
1 tablespoon of maple syrup 
1/4 cup of cacao powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
pinch of salt (I love pink Himalayan salt)

Blend all the ingredients together until they are all combined and smooth. Scoop an even amount to a few small containers and place in the fridge to cool before serving. You can top them with rose petals, dried strawberries or cacao nibs. Enjoy 

Create your magic!
