Well hasn’t it been a roller coaster of a month!!! Times have changed so much in such a short time…just over a month ago I was dancing at WOMADelaide with my dearest girlfriends & thousands (literally) of other people….fast forward a few weeks & due to COVID-19, most of us are in self isolation, barely seeing family, let alone our friends.
The current measures to protect the vulnerable in our community & allow our health system to cope, are easy to understand from an intellectual perspective. Having said that, the changes have still been a difficult thing to come to terms with – closed businesses, lost jobs or greatly reduced hours and income are all harsh realities a lot of us face. I’ve spoken to many of you, & understand it’s been an emotional roller coaster – believe me when i say I’m right in this with you!
Like many others, my business has certainly taken a hit. I can no longer offer yoga classes, massage or Bowen therapy. This happened very quickly, & I had to take some time & space to retreat & think about how I could move forward – hence you’re only hearing from me now.
I’m very lucky I have my Naturopathic skills & services which I am still offering as normal (though now primarily online via ‘Zoom’ teleconferencing). A huge & heartfelt thankyou to those of you who have already utilised my service in this ‘new’ way, or who have ordered supplements. I know natural medicine and trusting our instincts are ESSENTIAL in this time.
As many of you would be aware, I have a collection box by my front door where supplements can be picked up (turns out its super convenient in these social distancing times!). Simply give me a call/email/txt with what you need, & I can leave them out for you to collect.
I can also offer you the option of online ordering if it’s more convenient to have your supplements delivered straight to your door. Again, just let me know & I’ll set up your own personal portal to order.
Yoga on YouTube
So it turns out I’m now a ‘Youtuber’ – who would have thought!!! I’ve gradually been adding some yoga practices to my account (simply search ‘Hayley Agnew’ on YouTube – or click on this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9U43jtDwnA
I have created these so that you guys can access if/when it suits you. I’ll keep adding practices as I’m able to.
I really believe our Yoga practice is more important than ever & I want to offer what I can. This is important for me for many reasons. It’s a way to keep myself accountable to not only my own practice, but also my offerings & practice as a teacher. It is a skill I can offer in a time it’s very much needed. Please share these with anyone who you feel may benefit. I’m wary many people have lost not only jobs & income, but also a sense of freedom. It’s in these times our yoga practice serves us so well – offering us an opportunity to return to centre, & to cultivate our own inner resources.
If you are in a position to pay for a class & would like to, that would be incredibly appreciated, but certainly not expected. Otherwise please enjoy for free.
Spotify playlists to yoga to – there are literally years of these available for you to access. If you’ve been to one of my yoga classes, you’ll recognise them. They start slow so you can centre yourself & connect to your breath, then the music amps up so you can really move & feel the fire of your flow, & then it slows down again for a juicy stretch out & a delicious Savasana. You can access my yoga playlists here: https://open.spotify.com/user/odszg24ruaxprnna7nmgcjmio?si=20d4Jbs-SmG5vkA90K1_Lg
As always, it’s a pleasure to be of service to this community – I miss seeing you guys in person, & feeling your energy in the room, however I keep holding the vision we’ll see each other (for real), soon…..in the meantime, I’d love to see you in the virtual space.
Stay safe, stay well….and remember, this too shall pass.
