#34 Laura & Lauren Laverne - Memory Tapes BBC6 Music

I spent the morning polishing my vocal chords and was honoured to be on the radio for BBC6 Music with my Memory Tapes story in their morning programme.  I am so pleased that they aired it, I have written and re-written my story so many times.  It had been a mission to pluck up the courage, and it's actually great to share it and the BBC6 Music listeners that were an amazing crowd to play it too!! http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00c000j I salute you Lauren, radio babe!!!

It's great to feel there has been a lot of support out there, and the music, has been such an important milestone and now when I listen to music I am very grateful and feel amazing to listen to the music together! Its been a really humbling experience and I feel very blessed with all your responses and feedback.  Thanks with all my heart and head and sending all your positive vibes out.  

Massive thanks to my mum Jane for sticking my bed in hospital and moving to London to be by my side and support from my brother Tobe, Dad (love you dad) and family.  Particular thanks to my perfect beautiful man Iain for keeping me on my toes after only starting to go out with me for 6 x months and we are still going strong.  I LOVE YOU XXXX

Studio road-tripping #26

I have been on the road back to the sea and back to the shire busy writing scripts for my Kids Meditation.  It's been exciting and tiring and inspirational so far.  Tapping into the creativity part of my brain, I honestly feel like it's been a breakthrough. I have been meeting and connecting with some amazing people. I have an amazing pianist who I am collaborating with, an amazing designer, and mentor that I am meeting today.   I am going up and up and up!

I am not only reaching out to people who are skilled and lovely to work with who understand my vision, I am becoming more and more determined to reach my goals.  Keeping a strict regime of getting a balance between my personal yoga practice and teaching, curating my Kids products it's really important to not get stressed out.

I have realised so far as anyone who has started their own business it's tough.  Being able to be flexible enough to put a different hat on in all the parts of my business can be really challenging.

Every time I hit a brick wall, it spurs me on harder.  I know that throughout  my medical and cognitive challenges I continue to face over the past few years, despite this I still want to start my dream of running my own business. So I can try and be flexible to manage both and give peace and love to others (as cheesy as it sounds).  The podcast will be a real help to all children to help them relax and find peace in their minds.  I hope to encourage yoga and wellbeing to all in anyway I can.

My next mission.  Find the cash to really start things moving....

Fingers crossed 

 

Namaste Xx

Technicolour Beats #25

 

I came across this amazing song called 'Technicolour Beat' by Oh Wonder a few months ago whilst I was making my Yoga playlist.  (Thanks Iain!) It's the perfect tempo for my warm up at the beginning of my class.  It's really addictive it makes you want to sit down, open your arms and reach to the sky.  I love spending time with eyes closed visualising my technicoloured beat!  You should try it too!!

The gig was at The Haunt in Brighton and it was the first leg of their UK tour having coming straight from the Netherlands I was lucky enough to get some tickets as it had been sold out for months!  Fronted by a loverly couple they came across very humble and played some of the album classics, but it was worth the wait for the final song.  Get your ears around this, Oh Wonderful indeed.
