Helping you transform your Life, Health, Wellbeing and live a Mindful and Balanced Life

Yoga, Meditation, Coaching, Mentoring


Thank you for dropping by my website.

A warm welcome to and my studio ‘The Bhuti Yoga Retreat’. I hope you will find this website and my teaching inspiring and informative and I hope it encourages you to take that first step to discovering the endless possibilities, marvels and benefits of yoga. If you are thinking yoga is not for me, or you feel intimidated by some of the poses that you may see on social media, then let me reassure you, there is a style of yoga for ‘every body’, you do not have to be a contortionist or super fit or flexible.

I believe all beings want to thrive, to live a healthy, happy and fulfilling life. A life of laughter, joy and abundance. I hope you agree.

Yoga is a little like a diet, there is no one diet that fits all, we are all individuals and yoga is akin to discovering the perfect balanced diet and just as the correct diet can nourish and nurture you, so too can a regular yoga and meditation practice.

Yoga is a holistic practice, it provides you with the tools and techniques to manage and care for our own health and wellbeing. Yoga is listening in and tuning into our body, mind and breath. In yoga "We use the pose to get into our bodies and not the body to get into the pose".

With a regular consistent and disciplined practice you can reach optimal health and thrive and transform not just on your yoga mat but in your daily lives too.

The benefits of mindfulness meditation

I have a regular meditation practice and I cannot stress the benefits of a regular (mindfulness) meditation practice. There is scientific evidence that shows how meditation affects our brain, our mood our thinking and thought patterns (all in a positive way). Meditation is often a forgotten practice even by those practicing yoga regularly. There seems to be this misconception that meditation has to be carried out sitting alone in a quiet room, this is fine and often a great way to begin a meditation practice. Before we can practice meditation we have to learn to concentrate and I will be giving tools and techniques to use in my forthcoming blogs. Meditation can be done for example, outside walking in a lovely green open space, which is wonderful. When being mindful you learn to truly appreciate and use your senses, see, hear, feel, touch, taste and listen to all around you, it's not always about shutting out noise and having to have a quiet environment. Meditation can be done in a noisy place (although I find it does help to close your eyes). My clients often tell me that 'trying' to shut out the thoughts and stop thinking is impossible (or...

Should you avoid the roll up/roll down method?

Having practiced pilates for many years I was always instructed to 'roll-down' and 'roll-up' and I thought for many years this was safe. However when I did my yoga teacher training with the British Wheel of Yoga - the group I studied with spent a great deal of time over the three years training on anatomy, physiology and kinesiology and I can't tell you how many times we had the discussion and debate about the roll-up/roll-down. So to cut a very long story short - we were advised not to teach this method but to come up with a flat back, e.g. place hands on upper thighs, lift head and come up with a flat back. The roll-up / roll-down method has always intrigued me (I am a bit of an A&P geek) 🙂 so I did some research on this topic and of course as with most things in life there are very differing opinions. Dr Stuart McGill is a professor of spine biomechanics a very well respected, he has written numerous medical papers containing scientific evidence, and he has his own theory on core strengthening and is not a fan of the roll-up / roll - down method....

Dreams Can Come True - my new Yoga studio Posted by Barbara Ives on Saturday, November 19, 2016 Under: Dreams can come true.... Yoga Studio Retreat In the words of Gabrielle, "Dreams can come true...." finally after I can't tell you how many years I have finally achieved a dream come true. I will be opening my very own Yoga Studio Retreat in January 2017.  I have been reflecting, (yes I spend a great deal of time reflecting 🙂 ).  Sometimes we can feel as though our 'dreams' are a zillion miles away and may never come to fruition. I truly believe we have to manifest our dreams, if you want something enough you will and can make it happen. Yes really!! 🙂  I have a very open mind and always willing to try new things.  I have heard and read about the 'Law of Attraction' and I was somewhat sceptical but I read a number of books and chatted to a friend who is very into Abraham Hicks (Law of Attraction) so I did a lot of research on the subject.   I did all of the 'exercises and visualisations' that the Law of Attraction advise. I don't know if it is...
