Yoga in the garden

Last night's yoga class was one of the best ever. It was warm and sunny enough to go outside so we took our mats, etc. out into Anne-Marie's lovely garden - see http://www.yorkshirewellbeing.co.uk/

Doing yoga on freshly-mown grass amidst the scent of flowers and the sound of birds and church bells (it must have been a practice night!) was simply blissful.

Here is my class doing various poses -

Even warrior women over-balance sometimes!

Pampering pulls in the pounds!

D'you like my catchy headline? I'd better not give up my day job eh?

I'm still walking on cloud nine after my Perfect Week-End Treat fundraising event on Saturday! It was brilliant! Loads of lovely women came and spent loads of money and the amount raised so far is £1,038! There's still one donation to come in so I'll post the final amount when it arrives.

I had hoped to get near this kind of figure but you just never know what will happen on the day. 

I'm so grateful to everyone who came and supported the event. And to all the people who worked so hard to make it possible - the therapists, the stall holders, the staff at the Ascot House Hotel and the group of volunteers who helped me. A BIG, BIG THANK YOU TO YOU ALL!

Steve McEnaney - http://www.stevemcenaney.co.uk/ - took some amazing photos throughout the day and I will post some on my blog very soon.

And more publicity!

Everything's in place for my Perfect Week-End Treat pampering and indulgence afternoon on Saturday, 13th August and I'm getting very excited!

I've had some great publicity thanks to Ali Schofield, the editor at Plush Magazine, whose article in the August edition I mentioned in my previous post. I also want to thank Robin Scott, a reporter at the Harrogate Advertiser, who wrote about the event in Friday's paper (5th August).

Fingers crossed that lots of people have read the articles, put the date in their diaries and are coming to get seriously pampered!

Publicity in Plush Magazine

My Perfect Week-End Treat pampering and indulgence afternoon on Saturday, 13th August has been featured in the August edition of Plush Magazine!

This is a free magazine covering quite a large area - Harrogate, Wetherby, Knaresborough and Ripon - so I'm hoping the article will be read by a large number of women in need of a treat.

It's in the Social Diary section on page 7 of the magazine. And there's also a photo of Sue Harper Todd (Everest trek leader) and me in our Women for Women International T-shirts, which my husband Glyn took in our garden. Having previously not known which end of the camera was which, he's now contemplating a change of career.

You can read the article on the magazine's website -

And here's the photo of us, which was probably about the 10th attempt so our smiles were wearing a bit thin! Thanks Glyn!
