February: Be Happy

Hi and happy February!

I hope you are having a great 2020 so far and had a wonderful January!

I am going to be honest, I struggled a bit with a topic for this month’s newsletter.  I had lots of ideas, but none of them really came across right when I put pen to paper.  It has also been a cold and dreary day as I write this and all I want to do is put my cosy clothes on and make a cake…… because that would make me happy!

And that is when I thought about writing a slightly different newsletter this month.  Thinking about things which make us happy.

Things which are still in line with our values (which we identified last month) but we do purely and simply because THEY MAKE US HAPPY.

Sometimes it is good to not overthink things and just flow with life.  I find time and time again when I don’t have everything planned out and instead take some time out for me I am then able to think more clearly and ideas and thoughts come naturally I am much more effective and productive as a result.

So I thought I would share a few of the things which have made me happy recently, hoping you may get joy from these too:

  • Cake – anyone who knows me knows I do love a little bit of cake.  Especially when I have the time to make the cake too!  I made this vegan lemon drizzle cake a few weeks ago and it was a big hit in our house (thank you good housekeeping)!  If you’re interested in making this you can see the recipe here or if you’re not on pinterest you can view here.

  • Yoga – as I teach yoga throughout the week, it is sometimes nice to be the student and when I can’t get to a class I love following a good online yoga video.  As part of my pregnancy yoga training we watched a number of pregnancy yoga classes, including some online ones and  I really enjoyed this one so I thought I would share with you.  You don’t need to be pregnant to do the video and it is a lovely class you can fit in around your day.

  • Walks – we recently discovered some wonderful dog walks around Cardiff thanks to this article shared by Wales Online. Nothing beats getting out in the fresh air for a good countryside walk (normally finished with a big pub lunch!) so get your hiking books, a big warm coat and a flask of hot chocolate and go and explore where you live!

 

But for now, if you are struggling with the words to write, motivation, the next step (just like I was) – that is ok!  Just take it one step at a time and in the meanwhile, enjoy some delicious homemade cake!

In other news:

  • Pregnancy classes: We started our pregnancy yoga classes in January with such a fantastic and lovely group of women and I am really excited to be able to offer these classes on a regular basis soon.  More information will be available later in February!

  • Yoga Retreats: We held our first yoga retreat of 2020 at the end of January – a really amazing weekend with such a great group!  If you want to see some of the pictures from the retreat head to the Yoga Three60 Facebook Page where you can see what we got up to!

    I cannot wait to do it all again and luckily we haven’t got long to wait until our next yoga retreat taking place 1st-3rd May!  May 2020 Yoga Retreat: Taking Bookings Now - more information
  • Mum and baby yoga classes: I am so thrilled to let you know I will be offering baby yoga classes from April!  I will be sharing more information about these classes in the next month so keep an eye on our Facebook Page and Instagram Account or feel free to email me if you’re interested and I can send you more information soon!

  • Weekly yoga classes:  I now offer classes on a Monday morning and Tuesday and Thursday evenings so if you are looking to join a yoga class or perhaps have a friend or family member who you think would enjoy coming along please get in touch and I’d be delighted to share more information.

 

Well that is all from me this month.

I hope you have a wonderful February filled with doing things which make your soul sing and make you happy!

With loving kindness,

Lucy
