Thank you so much for joining our classes last week & I hope that you’ll join us again this week too – it wouldn’t be the same with you so get booked up in one (or more) of our classes.  I look forward to seeing you online.

We had some really, really lovely comments after last week’s classes and with permission, granted, here are some of them here particularly about Friday’s fitness yoga class:

“excellent class – couldn’t resist saying how much I appreciated today’s class…….. Keep at it Susan, you’re providing a wonderful service and experience and, always with a smile”.

“I enjoyed this morning’s class Susan.  It’s working out well for me to do the recorded Pilates & the live yoga classes….. my next challenge is to try Wednesday class”

“Great class Susan.. Good to warm up and get the blood pumping followed by some lovely stretches and yoga poses.  I’m set for the weekend now”

Thank you all for your kind & encouraging comments, I appreciate you taking the time to comment and email me 🙏, thank you (Susan)

Did you know that stress management is really important for a long healthy life? 

Well, it is according to lots of research & studies and according to one, yoga has been shown to not only improve our fitness, but respiratory problems, cognitive decline, sleep issues and depression. 

So there you have it… more reasons to continue our fitness yoga classes as well as our other classes as they will have the same benefits to our health & lifestyle.

Oh and according to one study, depression has been recognized as a risk factor for dementia and chronic stress has an increased risk of memory loss/decline.

As you know, there are lots of ways to improve our overall health through getting enough exercise, fresh air, nutrition, healthy relationships, stress reduction/management, sleep, making time for ourselves and much more and these are all things we should continue review and keep on top of.  Maybe more so now.  What do you think?

Did you know that older adults who drink coffee have a lower risk of death overall than non-coffee drinkers?  According to a study, there seems to be no difference between caffeinated and decaf either – coffee contains more than 1,000 health-benefitting compounds. 

For me, I’m generally a tea person (herbal, matcha etc) but when I do have a coffee, it’s a decaf one and I’d only drink it in the morning. 

Sometimes, I do add barista oat milk to it but mostly I drink it black.  Cheers ☕

You might be celebrating Burns Night next Monday 25 Jan and if so, it’ll be different as we all know.  No more going out for a Burns supper this year however, you might still be celebrating with friends & family by Zoom which would be a great idea.

I think it was a couple of years ago that Norman & I went to Henderson’s for a veggie Burns supper but …. as you know, Henderson’s is now no more 😢

A couple of months ago, I came across a recipe for a veggie beetroot haggis which I’m going to try out.  If you’d like the recipe, email me & I’ll send it to you although as I say, I haven’t made it yet so not sure how it turns out or tastes.  I’m sure it’s yummy though.

Enjoy your own Burns Night celebrations.
