Good morning yogis..

Please diarise our Yoga Monthly Luncheon which happens on Saturday next – 1pm on the 25th March,  at The LONE WOLF SALOON in Woodend.

Lunch sounds good, but it could be tropical here by Saturday.  Saturday was 30C I am told, but this morning is about 12C I think.  It is cold and windy.  Yesterday up at The Gallery (I missed seeing you?), the weather was soft, damp, misty and romantic.  I have seen weddings happen at The Mount in that weather – add a bagpipe, tartans and carriages and you will get the picture.  If you have to get married, you won’t get more beautiful and haunting than such a one.  Beautiful.

The Card for Today.

The Knight of Cups: – I haven’t painted it yet – and will share the image with you when I do.  The knight’s message is to keep everything in perspective – don’t let emotions rule your life.    When you get the Knight of Cups, ask yourself the following questions. How well-balanced are my feelings? Do I disregard my emotions or do I let my emotions control me? What can I do to tidy up my emotional life?     The Knight is urging you to embrace your emotions rather than push them away. Although this may be new to you – you might be surprised at how quickly you will feel better if you just take a moment to feel your feelings 


PRESSED FLOWERS.  The weather is coolling down and there are not many flowers about, but there is lots of spidery foliage to be had.  I have been pressing flowers for years, and have four presses – my starter, a small one with straps and then three I made for myself (getting bigger every time).  The photo to the left is of a framed piece – I always forget to photograph BEFORE I frame.

Next Month I am going to have a lovely afternoon of pressed flowers, champagne and chocolates (and Texas tea).  You will get a flower press to take away with you.  I will show you have to manage, and you can use some foliage and flowers I have collected a head of time, although you can start collecting now and bring them with you.  You could make cards, pictures, decorate furniture, even rooms (take note of “Escape to the Chateau” – Angel uses pressed flowers on walls).  We will learn the challenges and how to succeed at them all.  

When: Sunday April 16th, 2pm to 4.30(?). Cost: $55 all inclusive – drinks and nibbles, flower press, foliage to press, using glues, experimenting on different surfaces, finishing.    Email to book your space.


The new term will soon be here.  I have students who have opted out of the term fee, having asked for it.  Seems it is easier to deal with fees on a monthly basis.  I used to have a student who paid BY THE YEAR.  Once she had paid that was that.  She came to anything and everything.  It worked for her.  If you want to pay by the year it is $1,000 and you can come to any session.  If you don’t want to pay for the year in advance (few do) the cost is $88 for four classes, or $220 per term.  There are no refunds – if you miss a class you can do another make-up class in the same week (not next month or next year).  

Just a reminder of times and changes.  I will be doing a zoom INTRODUCTION TO DISABILITY YOGA.  When I learn something useful, that add to our studio skills, I bring it to you… and I am doing it again here.  I will keep you posted.  I am still working on the book, it will be a biggie, about 60 A4 pages to download.
