Do you miss surfing?

Do you miss surfing? I don’t miss surfing.

 

Ha! Spot the obvious lie.
What I miss more is the little things:

Seeing the surf reports and knowing life just got good…The tune-in with friends: who’s going where and when.

The drive down,:  Mirror-like lakes, mountain views, The sea on the horizon…
Wind turbines lookin’ so lazy.

A fuel-up of hot coffee and a quick catch up… Ohh, those cakes look nice….

Then down to the ocean…. Park up,
Let the dog out to wag and scrounge…

Relaxation and Stress relief

Looking to unwind? Try this guided yoga relaxation and stress relief technique.

Yoga Nidra translates as “Yoga Sleep”. It encourages a deep state of relaxation, where the body relaxes but where the mind remains awake. Listen to this yoga relaxation before bed, or at any time you need to unwind.

First Time Surfing… A Love Story.

What can you expect the first time you go surfing?

Everyone will have their own experience; their own reason for first dipping their toes in the ocean, surfboard clutched nervously under one arm. I will share with you my experience, perhaps it may sound familiar to those of you who recently took up surfing, or hopefully dispel any concerns someone might have should they want to give it a try; it may even remind seasoned surf instructors what it is like for your average Joe / Jo taking their first lesson so they may perhaps be a bit more forgiving of our ineptitude….

For a start, I admit to being very nervous the first time I went surfing.

I recently confessed this to a surf instructor friend of mine who laughed and thought I was joking. “How could anyone be nervous of trying to surf?” Read more

Yoga Ocean – Welcome

Welcome to Yoga Ocean.

 

My name is Genevieve Brown. I have been teaching yoga for over ten years now and practicing for over twenty.

My husband, Colin, was a fellow yogi and we studied yoga together in India. When we returned from our travels we set up a yoga business in the west of Northern Ireland. We named out business Yogacare, as we taught yoga to people with physical and learning disabilities, to victims and survivors of The Troubles, to people with chronic illness, to mental health groups as well as sports people and movie stars with injuries. We taught yoga to anyone and everyone…

Eight years after starting up our business together, my husband was diagnosed with cancer. He died four months later, leaving me with the business to look after… and our daughter, who had just turned three.

Six months later I took up surfing.

This is my story…

 

This blog is about sharing with you what I have learned (and am still learning) from yoga, surfing and life experiences.

 

I hope that it may be of benefit to you and others.

 

… Genny
