The Power of Asking & Daily Mantras – Jen Klinkigt

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

  I’ve always been a person who thought I’d have to do everything by myself and that I would get through it, which I always have. But during the last few weeks and months I’ve wondered why I never asked for help and feel like I have to do it all by myself. But not just that, I’ve hardly ever asked anything from other people or the universe. So, I’ve started asking…   I’ve asked companies if they’d be happy to help me with events, asked other people if they’d like to collaborate, asked the universe and they all delivered….

Davy Jones: Dad, Ashtangi, Green Party Candidate and Founder of The Brighton Yoga Foundation

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Davy Jones has been teaching yoga for ten years and practising for eighteen. He is chair of the Brighton Yoga Foundation / Festival and was the Green Party’s parliamentary candidate for Brighton Kemptown in the last two elections. Here is his story…..   There is a famous Zen Buddhist saying: ‘When the student is ready, the master appears’. How true for me! If you had told me 25 years ago that I would be a yoga teacher from 2007, I would have simply laughed. Back then I was working at a senior level at the Audit Commission in London, living in Hackney in a long-term relationship with two daughters….

Welcome to my very first blog and thank you for taking the time to read this and get to know me a little better! I first came here as a student and immediately fell in love with this beautiful calm space, with a lovely friendly community of teachers and students.   Although I’m originally from London, I moved down to Brighton a couple of years ago and I’m so glad to be able to call this vibrant (and slightly wacky!) city of ours my home. There’s nothing better than living by the seaside, going walking in the South Downs, and all the opportunities to practice yoga…

The gift of Restorative Yoga from us to you.

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Restorative Yoga, from us to you. I never even used to like seated asanas. What’s the point? Give me a Vinyasa any day. Then I gave Restorative Yoga a go and, to my surprise, dove into a deeply therapeutic practice that moved more mountains than a Tadasana ; ). Now I can’t get enough of deep, slow flowing movement and long held postures. Some days I feel like a bull in a china shop, and it’s on those days I know I need the practice more than ever. Don’t get me started on the benefits of Yoga, I’ll talk your…
