NEW Hatha Yoga Class in Wimbledon

NEW Hatha Yoga Class in Wimbledon

New Year, New Classes:

Hatha Yoga – Fridays 10.15-11.30am at Create Pilates

I’m excited to be teaching another class at <a href="http://www click to read more.createpilates.com/”>Create in Wimbledon. As well as *Flow & Restore with Yoga Nidra on Wednesdays – *now at the new time of 11.45am-1pm, I am also teaching Hatha Yoga on Friday mornings from 6th January.

Meaning ‘sun’ and ‘moon’ in Sanskrit, Hatha yoga is the general term used for the physical practice of yoga in the West. In this class, attention is given to postural alignment, encouraging students to experience and explore movement and postures through the release of tension and the use of conscious breathing.

If you like small yoga classes with the space for more individual attention then you will enjoy practising yoga at Create – a lovely boutique studio that also offers Pilates (both reformer and mat), massage and rehab.

Address – Create Pilates, 1 Lambton Road, Wimbledon, SW20 0LW

Grain-Free Porridge Recipe

Grain-Free Porridge Recipe

Since the cold weather, I’ve really been enjoying this warming grain-free ‘porridge’ – this recipe started as an experiment but actually turned out quite well! Unlike oats this keeps me full up to (in fact, often beyond!) lunchtime and not craving sugar later on in the day (I also wanted a change from eggs – my usual go-to). If you fancy giving it a try here’s how I make it but feel free to experiment:

1 tbsp sunflower seeds
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp milled flaxseeds (but you can also use whole)
2 tsps dessicated coconut
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup milk (I’ve been using unsweetened almond milk)

Put all the ingredients in a pan, stir and bring to the boil. Simmer until desired consistency is reached – this won’t take long at all! I like a thick porridge but if you want a thinner consistency just stir in more milk while simmering.

Here I’ve topped mine with half a banana and some raspberries I had in the freezer and warmed through.

Enjoy! 😀
