Welcome

May you enjoy exploring my poems, blogs and offerings. You might like to check out my Blossom Online Yoga Studio if you’re seeking transformation, to strengthen your body and mind to and to live a more Heart centred life.

We all benefit from consistency in our Yoga and Meditation practices as the effects are accumulative. Yoga is life. We prepare for life on our mats. Yoga is a Spiritual practice, meaning it awakens your Spirit and nourishes your Soul. This is why I created Blossom Yoga. I live-stream yoga classes in Northamptonshire, UK, from my wide beam river boat, Lily Pearl. The beauty of live-stream is that you can join in from anywhere.

🌹Cultivate a regular morning Spiritual practice to see your Self bloom🌹

Have Fun Exploring…

Please have a browse through my Blog & Poems. Use the brilliant tag cloud, or search the categories at the bottom of the page to find ones that may be of interest and inspiration.

You’ll find here info on Yoga & Meditation Classes, One to One Mentoring, Readings, Therapies, when and where I’m doing workshops, retreats or performing spoken word under the “Offerings” drop down menus.

You can book live stream Yoga classes and one to one sessions with me. If you’re a new Yoga teacher I want to help you to build your confidence. As a senior Yoga teacher, Im offering mentoring sessions through Yoga Alliance Professionals. Accredited Meditation Courses also coming soon… Please contact me to stay updated.

If you’re just here for the poems, a good one to start with is “Dancing In-betweens the I’s”, featured above. The first poem I published online, it’s had two standing ovations as a spoken word piece since. It reveals a little of my personal history with sensory challenges and resulting anxiety and panic attacks. This is why I started Yoga. I like to write directly from my own experience and my daily Spiritual practices help me to function Joyfully in a world where we are increasingly being bombarded with excessive information and sensory stimulus.


My Style…

As a Yoga and Meditation teacher, Shamanic practitioner, Witch and ex-Monk, exploring Spirituality and what that is and isn’t, features heavily in my musings, as does exploring the human psyche. My muse is easily amused and before you label me a completely “woo-woo” new age kind of witch (I assure you Witches are not a new age phenomenon!), you might want to check out my Ode to Jeremy Clarkson.

My writings come through the Heart for I’m a Heart on sleeve kinda lady. Poems come to me like a scent on the breeze, sometimes pleasant, sometimes profound, sometimes angsty, sometimes funny, sometimes sweet and sometimes sweary. Often they remind me that life is Sacred. I hope they will remind you of that too.

You’ll notice I capitalise certain words that to me are Sacred or uplifting in some way. I’ve always done this naturally. I’m not trying to be a poet laureate, the poems come as they do and I try not to over craft or edit them too much. Essence and Soul will always win over grammar! My muse likes to respond to things, so you can always invite me to write a poem on a specific topic and we’ll see what comes out.

To truly listen and to be truly heard is a sacred act, a dying art that needs reviving if we are to create a Peaceful world.

Commission Me…

Commission me to write a Poem for you or to come and perform my poems as spoken word. Book me for talks, to run workshops on Poetry, Yoga & Meditation, Stress Management or Spiritual practices for businesses, schools, events and festivals.

I love what I do and all that I do is offered with Love, with the intention of helping others to BE more Love and to live as Love. This really means becoming comfortable in our own skins, connecting in with our own Hearts, learning to be authentic, coming home to our Selves beyond any labels of the mind. Meditation for me is the gateway to this. This is why I started “The Silent Revolution”.


Engage With Me…

Like, share, comment, please offer your thoughts if a poem or blog resonates with, touches (or triggers!) you in some way. I appreciate your engagement.

What you love/like the most about classes:

The three classes are different. Each session starts with a Heart meditation which I now do every day. I particularly like Mondays as we journal and do muscle activation.

Any changes you’ve noticed in your body or mind:

My body is getting stronger and I am getting more confident in the poses. I am more aware of what is going on in my mind.

Any revelations:

I thought I needed to be able to see the teacher but Raye is very good at explaining what you should be doing and I am finding I don’t need to see her. It is certainly helping me to be aware of my posture.

Note: I (Raye) am visible on zoom should you need to look).

Why you would recommend people to join us:

Raye is an amazing teacher and incorporates so much wisdom into the classes.

What do you love/like the most about classes:

The time I absolutely love.  The  7 – 8 am starts my day off perfect. I love the weave of inner work, flow, strength and your smile that lights the screen. My body feels alive and ready to take on the day.

Any changes you’ve noticed in your body/mind:

Strength, flexibility with focus and a spring in my step!

Any revelations: I HAVE SOOOO MISSED YOUR FLOW!!!

Why would you recommend people to join us: 

You were my first yoga teacher to take me under your wing on a damp winter’s eve many years ago. I was a complete novice but with your outstanding teaching, you gave me confidence and the wings to explore the wonders of our body’s strength and the inner selfSo for anyone out there wanting to grow with their yoga practice then these online classes will be right up your street. Take the plunge you won’t regret.
