Get some SPRING in your step! (lolz, sos!)
Afraid I dont have a car for you, (see this link for the iconic inspo for this vid ... )
but i DO have a celebratory springtime practice for you! Let´s get lifted! And a bit bananas!
Sidenote: If it´s not springtime where you are, perhaps some improv moments)
In celebration of the season where we hopefully have more energy, we get playful in our practice and use balances to plant seeds and welcome in transition. If you´re not feeling so energetic these days, hope this practice will be uplifting and inspire you to be ok with the fluctuations in energy that we have which is completely normal. Whatever place you´re starting on, let´s explore how we can play with rooting down to rise up - just like the flowers.
2nd + 3rd chakra focus for those of you into the energetic side of things - charging up your centre and place of power (3rd) and being in flow with the pleasure principle (2nd).
Hopefully we can play and explore our centre of gravity as we balance, and take that exploration out into the real world in our real lives as we tune into the balance in our energies as we go on with our business -
respectfully taking time to balance and respond to our own fluctuations with energy (sidenote: you don´t have to do it all or be out there all the time, the same way you don´t need to be stagnant or dimming your light....it´s all about finding your own balance baby!)
Of course, all my classes are open for all, however this one has a slightly more energetic vibe (obvs), but you choose your own seasoning, know what i mean?
You will need: a block/ cushion
Reeeally hope you enjoy this one! Let me know below!
Love always, dionne

We´re often encouraged to start from a centred and grounded place that feels supportive. Steady.
...But when is anything ever steady? Really?
I have a self care box at home containing the things that uplift me when i need to feel better. It includes my trusty eye pillow, some oils, words, art tools and so on. I find it useful to have these items always at the ready - a “ritual in a box” if you like, that really helps me practice self care on the regular.
Read on for my tips to create your own self care box!
Thank goodness for our wrists! They, along with our hands, support us in so many ways during the day, so let´s give them a little bit of love!
Feel the need to unwind and get back to your centre?
Take a break in your day to reconnect, realign and reenergise with some twists!
Those days where we think about doing something. Yet it doesn’t quite happen. On those days, i remind myself and others to tread gently.
Here´s a sequence i use when i want to slow things down and practice being a little more tender and gentle.
The possible has been tried and failed. Now it’s time to try the impossible.— Sun Ra
The time has come. I have to jump and, ahem, “just do it”.
As the trees shed their leaves and go back into the earth, we are also afforded the opportunity to draw in, retreat, reflect and reconnect by releasing the stuff we don´t need. Because with endings also come new beginnings. We are part of a bigger cycle.
Many of us have a tendency to be hard on ourselves. We learn from a young age how to be self critical. harsh. pushing. punishing. forcing. harder. faster.
Can we re-educate ourselves to become more tender?
