Exercise Classes online, then live

I know many of you want to return to live group exercise classes, but Covid rules are such that we remain online for classes a further 6 weeks.

So, I'm starting a new series of Exercise Classes on Zoom from 12th April. Details are on my Yoga & Stretch Exercises page. Please email me if you'd like to join us and I'll add you to the link list, and I'm happy to answer your questions.

If you're wary of Zoom, this is what participants have said:

I am glad that I tried your Zoom classes; not too much waving and informative and friendly atmosphere

I’m doing a huge amount more throughout the week than I ever did by going to live weekly exercise classes and they have become part of my daily routine

how wonderful your classes are for the whole body....preparing, massaging, stretching and strengthening, breathing and relaxation

A Spring tonic for your liver

Liver detox smoothie ingredients
Your liver can get a little overwhelmed at this time of year as energies start to rise. It's the best time to consider a gentle detox. Eliminate all processed foods and sugar, cut out animals products. Boost your vegetable intake and replace breakfast a few times this week with a green smoothie. My ultimate smoothie is made with these ingredients:

1/2 lemon, zest and juice
1/2 Apple
Handful Kale/cavelo nero
Fresh Parsley
1 tsp Spirulina
1 tsp Maca powder (optional)
150ml filtered water
Kale or another brassica for its iron and magnesium for cognitive function
Lemon juice to cut through fats, while the zest contains the most vitamin C
Spirulina or another green superfood, rich in minerals, cleansing for liver and a digestive system booster.
Maca is thought to be an energy booster 

Place the ingredients in a bullet-style blender to create a yummy green smoothie your liver will give the heads up to. Remember to drink within 15 minutes of making, otherwise it starts to lose its magic.

It's never too late to start exercising

Studies show that being fit is about more than mere muscle strength. How well we can lift a weight can tell us as much about the strength of our neural pathways as it can about the strength of our muscles. That's way I offer a range of types of exercise classes. Stretching is as important as Strengthening muscles, so I incorporate both in any exercise session. And how we breathe, how we focus and coordinate when we exercise and move, how we hold ourselves is vital too.

So join my classes for March and feel the difference.

(and get yourself ready for playing frisbee!)

Fermented Foods, great for your gut and immune system


Now is a great time to make sauerkraut or kimchi. Check out my versions of Suffolk Kimchi and Nasturtium "Capers" on my Recipes page.

I'm planning some Fermentation workshops in the New Year, either live in Suffolk, or on Zoom. Let me know if you're here

Fermented foods are easy to make, once you know how, and they're great for gut health and also support your immune system. Cabbage ferments are also rich in Vitamin C as well as good gut bacteria.
