Little furniture rejig and the entrance hall has got a new console table/cabinet.
This midcentury beauty was another lucky charity shop find, it used to hold my bed linens on the landing but it’s nice to actually show it off down here.
If you look closely, you’ll see I’ve already made use of the little vintage terracotta pots I found yesterday!
That’s the bright side of wet and windy days - maximum faff time!
On the bright side
A certain vintage

Next month we’re so excited to welcome Lana @lanagsmith to our humble little arch. She’ll be starting Tuesday evening classes, 7:15-8:30pm from Tuesday 14th May.
Lana and Claire first met years and years ago when they used to practice Sivananda together. They ended up taking their teacher trainings the same year, in 2014. It’s a joy to welcome Lana to Yoga at Sunshine!
"For me, yoga is a journey and a lifelong practice which requires constant adjustment to reflect the practioner’s time of life, experience and changes in the body; physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally.
I have been practicing yoga for over 20 years and several styles including Sivananda, Iyengar and Ashtanga Vinyasa, Vinyasa flow and Bhakti yoga (under the guidance of the late Bhaktivedanta Narayana Goswami Maharaja).
The way that I teach aims to integrate all the above styles. This means including the 12 basic asanas of Sivananda style yoga (standing, seated and inversions) embedded within vinyasa flow, incorporating alignment for safe practice, plus the commitment, steadfastness and mindfulness of Bhakti yoga.
My aim is to allow the practitioner to pracitice in a safe space .A space that allows them to go on their own, personal yoga journey safely, with confidence.
Getting to know and understand their individual body and self. Developing and respecting the ability, range of movement, strength and flexibility that they have at each given moment during practice. Most importantly, a practioner should not feel pressured to make shapes in order to achieve an asana their body may or may not be aspiring to achieve, making sure they are practicing in a non-violent ,compassionate way. By doing this, I encourage students to develop their own authentic self-practice, while knowing and respecting their limits."
