Wellbeing and creative practices to support you to live a soulful and connected life. What will you do with this one precious life?

My passion is supporting others to live well, to experience deep rest and relaxation through the therapeutic practice of Restorative Yoga and Pranayama. Training with Judith Hanson Lasater to become a certified Advanced Restorative Yoga trainer. Each year I take great pleasure in assisting Judith to train yoga practitioners in the art of Restorative Yoga and relaxation through observation, care and compassion.

Creativity and curiosity flows through all aspects of life. To be curious is to acknowledge there is more to discover. I hope you will join me.

At the Art & Nature workshop we were gifted a parcel of charcoals, pencils, mixed papers and fabrics, that guided our afternoon’s creations. We breathed and explored textures, we ripped paper, we bashed leaves, we printed our own colours, we drew, we moved our bodies, we observed. We created beautiful memories.

Do give yourself this time and space and experience to deepen your connection to yourself and to nature. It is truly a gift.

A creative & joyful afternoon of flowers, drawing, tea and cake. We meandered around Kathy Brown’s wonderful Manor Gardens collecting inspiration to draw. Fran lead us through some great art practices to help us be more experimental. It was nice to draw freely and without expectation. We created leaf prints to fabric, we drew, we sipped tea surrounded by flowers and ate Kathy’s delicious homemade cakes… what’s not to love!

During my recovery from Covid-19, practising Restorative Yoga and Meditation 1-1 with Fran has been the medicine I needed to find myself again. I feel incredibly lucky to regularly experience Fran’s patience and kindness. She has shown me the true importance of looking after my wellbeing. Thank you Fran x
