Retreat 1st September 2018

I am so very excited to announce that I am holding a day of Yoga, relaxation and delicious food.

The day costs £60 for Early Bird tickets (before 1st August) and includes:

10 am: Hatha yoga to energise

A light lunch of vegetarian goodness

A more slow, restorative Yoga class with deep relaxation

4pm: Homemade cakes and tea

This is at the  gorgeous Saint Nicolas Place,  which is on the historical grounds of The Green, Kings Norton Birmingham.

This is a day for celebration of movement and I must stress this is for EVERY BODY.  Even if you have not yet dipped your foot into the expansive pool of Yoga.

This would suit a Yoga newbie, someone who hasn’t been near a yoga mat for x amount of years to the more frequent practitioner.   If you have recently given birth or are pregnant, you are most welcome.

This time of Year

Brrrr!

I don’t know about you but I have found from experience that this time of year my body takes a battering from the ‘seasonal engagements’.  This is the time for PARTY but it is also the time to restore:

How about we consider the Winter months to be a hibernation period where we listen to our bodies and let them heal while we look at food to nourish and build strength?

Thank you for all your support in the last months.
See you in the New Year.
With good health and blessings,
George

Stretch and Relax with Baby new classes in September

Hello!

From Friday September 15th, I will teach a Yoga class for Postnatal mums’ and their baby’s called ‘Stretch and Relax with Baby’.  This is a very relaxed class for mums’ and their baby’s to bond together in a friendly, laidback environment (where mum can relax in a space away from home)

Classes will focus on the following:

  • Strengthening the body: Gently but deeply the pelvis, abdominals and back muscles
  • eases out tension, correcting posture; brings relief to aching muscles
  • focus on the breath and deeper relaxation. This works to ease out emotional tension

This is every Friday in Saint Nicolas Place, The Green, Kings Norton @ 1100am.

Prices are from £5.50/class (for 6 class pass)

Blueberry Coconut loaf

For the final Class before I have several weeks off for the birth and new mum role, i made this which was decided on by the contents of my cupboards.  It didn’t rise that well and I overmixed the blueberries so the whole sponge had a blue tinge to it!  For a low sugar, no egg or butter loaf recipe it was rather good.

Ingredients

200g self rising flour

150g sugar (i used granulated)

4tbs Greek yogurt

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

3 tbs oil ( I used rapeseed oil)

1/2 a lemon-use the juice and rind

1/2 banana mashed

100g blueberries (i used defrosted one)

Topping
1 tbs jam of your choice 
2-3 tbs desiccated coconut


Method

  1. Mix the sugar and oil together
  2. Add the flour and bicarb
  3. Beat in the banana
  4. Add the yogurt (may need a bit more than stated to create a wet, thick batter)
  5. Add the lemon juice and rind
  6. Finally stir in the blueberries and pour into a greased and lined loaf tin
  7. Oven at 160 degrees for 25 mins
  8. Take from oven and allow to sit for 10 minutes before turning out to cool
  9. Once cool brush melted jam onto the top and sides and roll cake in desiccated coconut
