Summer Solstice Newsletter

Abundant light’s
generosity
spreads
from edge to edge.
The vast space of lighted hours
feeds us skinfuls
of joyous nourishment,
Living three days in one 
where it barely is dark,
So may we celebrate Midsummer brightness.

(Aran June Fragment)


Portuguese retreat style Women's Yoga training at Gravito

 

Dearest Yoginis

Greetings from the Aran Islands, where the light is mighty, from 3.30am til well after 11. And this brightness nourishes and feeds our spirits. Midsummer blessings to you all.

I’ve landed here off the West Coast of Ireland after travelling from Portugal, where I was sharing three wonderful women’s yoga courses with three groups of wonderful women - offering deep thanks and appreciation to everyone who helped and participated in the first ever Portuguese retreat style Pregnancy Yoga, Women’s Yoga and Mother and Baby Yoga trainings at Gravito. The courses were so much appreciated that we are back again next year, 2018, with a residency for a full month, sharing these teachings in the extraordinary beauty of Gravito (and if you simply can’t wait til then, maybe consider joining us for the Total Yoga Nidra Foundation, Self practice and teacher training courses in July/August). 

Meanwhile, so many people are busy sharing so many wonderful things, that we are keen to sing the praises of all the upcoming events listed here beneath. 

Go well on your midsummer journeys, wherever they bring you may the light shine bright! 

With great respect and love I send warm wishes for your well being
SHANTI

North America Tour

I am so excited about my forthcoming first-ever tour to the USA and Canada in the Fall. I've received such an enthusiastic response with more invitations to do workshops than she can fit in! I start with a private, invite-only retreat in the beautiful lakes of Vermont. Then I will be in San Francisco, Denver, Chicago and Montreal. We’re also finalising the details on a couple of other venues so will let you know about these asap. There will be a couple of Nurturing and Revitalising evening Womb Yoga classes, a Pregnancy and Birth class as well as workshops on Menstrual Health and Fertility; Postnatal and Peri-menopausal Health; Menopausal Health; and Creativity, sexuality and the cycles of our lives.  If you’ve ever fancied bringing your men-folk along then there will also be a couple of Source Power workshops, where I will share her teachings with men and women together. There will also be various Total Yoga Nidra events.
