Having a midlifer – why it’s not a crisis

I couldn’t have ordered it better if I tried. Bang on my 50th year and I find myself deep into a 'midlifer' as I now call it. How did that happen? (LOL as I write this).

Your natural rhythm

We have been medicated by noise, distraction and a million opportunities to think about new things for so many years now, that we have forgotten when it all started. And then there is worrying about the future and being held back by thoughts of the past.

Tension in Yoga

Tension, we live with it like an annoying friend. It’s created by the mind but shows up in the body in the form of tightness in areas like neck and shoulders, chest and pelvis.
