Where is WordPress?

Wordpress has mysteriously disappeared from my iPad. I suppose this is ary anti-climatic end to the yoga challenge, and also blogging for the short term until I figure out how to fix it. For some reason I can't download a new version from the App Store. Anyway, life has thrown a few new challenges in

Day Sixteen, Lizzie’s Yoga Challenge: Yoga with Laura Gate Eastley

Tags: , , , |

As far as the Yoga Challenge is concerned, the past three days have been a wash, due to familial responsibilities and work. If I had been sitting around on my rump I would feel slightly more guilty about it, but as it is I feel a little disappointed in myself not to have put more

Day Fifteen, Lizzie’s Yoga Challenge: Iyengar Yoga with Alaric

Tags: , , , |

Alaric Newcombe is somewhat of a household name on the Iyengar scene in London; he is a senior teacher whom generally people either love or hate. I haven't met anyone who doesn't have a strong opinion about him either way, and over the years I have stood equally on both sides of the fence. Luckily,

Day Fourteen, Lizzie’s Yoga Challenge: Transformational Breathing with Rebecca Dennis

Tags: , , , , , , |

I feel as if I may have cheated a little bit on my "yoga" challenge yesterday as I decided to use my Transformational Breath session with Rebecca as my daily 'class', but after all, a large part of practicing yoga is about the breath, and I'm still supposed to be 'taking it easy'. After my

Day Twelve and Thirteen, Lizzie’s Yoga Challenge: Self-practice, and Restorative Yoga with Anna Blackmore

Tags: , , , , , , |

After a weekend of social activity and yoga, Monday's theme was 'Back to Work', and entailed teaching several yoga classes, parental time with my son, and a short but meaningful self practice of thirty minutes. Since returning to work from the transplant, I have started to become far more realistic about how much energy I

Day Ten, Lizzie’s 30 Day Yoga Challenge: Black and Light Yoga Event

Tags: , , , , , |

I have to admit, I've broken an official* Yoga Challenge rule by practicing with a teacher for the second time in the course of my Yoga Challenge month, but as it was a very different type of class in the form if a dance event, I have forgiven myself. The event, called Black and Light

Day Nine, Lizzie’s Yoga Challenge: Vinyasa Yoga with Leone Roberts

Tags: , , , , |

Having no internet at home has been a blessing in disguise. It has been down since last Wednesday, and have been more productive at home than I have been in years! As far as the yoga challenge goes, it means a bit of a back log, and learning to live with a condition I hate,

Day Eight, Lizzie’s Yoga Challenge: Feldenkrais for Yoga with Daniel Gelblum

Tags: , , , , , , |

For better and for worse, internet connections don't always work, and rooms are only built a certain size. My home internet connection has been down the past few days making reporting on life and The Challenge fall by the wayside; and the room of yesterday's class with Daniel was only so big, limiting the exercises

Back to the challenge: a week later, day seven with Kate Walker

Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Although this hasn't been my first yoga class in a week, up until now it has either been self practice, test classes or Rolfing school, not accounting for much time or material to report on. I surprised myself by honoring my intentions to attend Kate Walker's class today when I actually made it to Triyoga

…and then there is life…

Tags: , |

If ever a day could go pear shaped, it would look a little bit like my day today. I didn't make it to Tanya Mickwitz's class, nor did I make it to teach my own regularly scheduled class. Instead, life happened. I arrived home in the afternoon with my son unable to walk and complaining
