Another year has almost passed. Thank you to all who have attended my classes and workshops that keep me inspired and learning! I truly hope that at least some of what we've shared has become integrated into your own practice, and life.

I hope to see you at my last workshop of this year. The focus will be on gathering energy into our centre, and releaseing it with a very powerful gentleness and open heart. We'll look at how to take care of our backs, hips, knees and necks through the winter months, how to relax, breathe and find stillness with movement.

Suitable for everybody with a heart, and a sense of fun

Love Jacqui

Bodywise Workshop notes 30th November 2008

With a rein did I hold back the steed of my thought.

By ardent practice did I bring together the vital airs of my ten nadis.

Therefore did the digit of the moon melt and descend unto me,

And a void became merged within the Void ...Lala
