Overwhelm for Christmas, Anyone?

Overwhelm for Christmas, Anyone?

Back in October I heard a wonderful thing on the radio.

It’s my mum’s birthday this week. But since she has passed away it sadly marks another year without her. But because of this it feels like the perfect week to be hosting a wonderful event to bring motherless women together in the positive spirit of yoga to enjoy class, cuppa and cake.
