I recently contributed to an article on the symptomatic use of Acupressure points to alleviate Stress and anxiety, here’s a snippet;
“It’s also important to keep what you are trying to achieve by pressing a point in its correct context. It’s fundamental to understand that whenever you energetically treat a point on yourself, or anyone else, your intention is to move energy towards what I call ‘universal balance.’
By this I mean moving towards balance with the environment and forces of nature around you, such as the seasons, and also connection with one’s own highest potential and individual destiny. This is essential to keep in mind when you palpate a point, as otherwise our ‘smaller mind’ or ego can get in the way…. View the full article here…
Yoga Events and Classes!
The Daily Express dedicated pretty much a double page spread to Singles Yoga and sent along a reporter, Hannah Britt to sample the event first hand. Read Online
“Dating yoga is actually a lot of fun. Any reservations I may have had before the class disappear quickly. With each partner I have a good laugh. After the class we’re encouraged to change out of our gym gear and go for a drink in the bar next door. The up close and personal yoga has been an effective ice-breaker.” — Hannah Britt
Alice Poon of Bornrunner Blog wrote a fabulous piece on the Camden beach yoga classes at the Roundhouse. Read Online
“Wouldn’t it be an amazing experience to practice yoga on a beach, imagine being able to do this in the very heart of London. A few week’s ago I attended Time Out’s yoga sessions at the Roundhouse beach, Camden in collaboration with Creative Yoga……” (Photo credit Alice Poon)
“Feeling like a kid again! As we laughed our way through trying to get into some of the poses, I couldn’t help feeling like I was back in gym class and we were playing around freely. It was an awesome feeling!” — Indra Kubicek
Top Indian News Channel NDTV came along to check out Social Yoga one of the weeks. Radhika Iyer loved it. See report.
Charly Lester of 30 Dates Blog fame was due to pay us a visit, but she went down with the flu, so sent along one of her previous dates, Tim (pictured far left) to check us out! Read here.
“Even though everyone in the room is a complete stranger, thanks to Richard’s positive energy it doesn’t feel overly strange to be doing things you’d only normally do with people you’ve known five years, let alone five minutes.” — Tim
We had a visit from Daniel O’Reilly for his ITV 2 programme. It was a super fun afternoon!
Miguel from Indigo Memoirs came along and was similarly impressed!
“Whether you are into yoga or not Yoga dating is a great place to make new friends in a relaxed atmosphere.” – Miguel
Sky News visited us, filming us as part of a report they were doing on a survey relating to British people’s changing sex lives. Apparently, Brits are becoming more adventurous! See Report
Daily Mail picked up on Yoga Dating while it was still called “Singles Yoga.” Unlike most of the other coverage, their writer hadn’t actually been to a class, so I guess she was using her imagination as much as anything else! Read Online
“You don’t need to panic if you have never experienced Yoga before; the class welcomes people of all levels. I am a total beginner to the Yoga scene, now that I have finally experienced it, I’m hooked. The very talented, and may I say, extremely flexible Richard, demonstrates yoga sequences with his partner, in which we would then recreate with our own partners. This is the perfect opportunity for you to get up close and personal with your date, not only will you form a great physical connection but also a soulful connection too.” — Lauren
Amanda York wrote about Yoga Dating a while back when it was still known as “Singles Yoga.”
“I believe that with over 2 million single people in London alone that this is one to watch! Who wouldn’t want to attend a class that promises perhaps a future partner and the mission of “gone is yoga done in isolation and in place is yoga that connects – with your body, feelings and spirit, those around you in the class, rhythms of nature and your sense of destiny.” — Amanda
Leisure Editor Tim Macfarlane was given dating advice and coaching for a week by our friend at CYL and leading UK dating coach, Hayley Quinn (pictured centre, right).
As part of Hayley’s dating makeover, she bought Jim along to Yoga Dating. Read here.
“Just as intended, it was suddenly a lot easier to talk to everyone at the bar now we’d all enjoyed various degrees of bodily contact – making a welcome change from the usual six pints and a clumsy pass.” – Hayley
We were nominated at the UK dating awards, unfortunately we lost out to a dating event that people attended wearing paper bag over their heads. Because, of course that enables you to get an accurate appraisal of whether you fancy someone. We’re not bitter, honest!
