Joint partnership with Karuna White
Karuna Hall ( née Karuna White ) is a second generation Yogi as she is the daughter of Ruth White internationally known student of BKS Iyengar himself. Karuna qualified as a Yoga teacher 27 years ago and has been teaching both in the UK and abroad ever since. She is able to adapt to the ever changing needs of her students and she is well known for helping her students relieve back and neck aches through alignment, posture and core strengthening. Karuna has a Bsc in Human Physiology and her dynamic teaching allows you to reach a deeper state of relaxation that leaves you feeling revitalised in mind, body, and spirit.
Karuna and Suzy’s teaching complement each other greatly as our dedication to the Iyengar style of Yoga and its fundamental principles remain the same.
Following the Autumn equinox on the 22nd September this year, we look forward to the coming of Autumn and all that it brings for us on an energetic level. The Autumn equinox marks the start of a (usually spiritual) journey inward that will last a few months.
Time to go within
During the Autumn season, we spend more time inside with loved ones and generally move at a slower pace than in Summer. We are offered the opportunity to regroup, contemplate and return to that deep inner well of power. It is a time for us to decide what we wish to create and be thankful for all that we already have.
Spiritually, Autumn is a time for releasing what no longer serves you, honouring your inner growth, and of course the equilibrium of day and night encourages us to balance the light and darkness within our own lives. The trees are shedding what they no longer need and so should we. What or who are we ready to release from our life? What will we not be taking with us into this new season? How will we navigate letting go of these things for good?
Autumn also brings with it the harvest, the fruits of our planting and hard work at the beginning of the year. It is a time for us to be thankful for all that we already have, a time for gratitude. In the same way that farmers honour their harvest by gathering crops, we should be honouring our own harvest by looking back at the intentions we previously set and acknowledging how they’ve come to fruition.
