There are a number of habits that have been drummed into me from school. For me the calendar year will always begin in the first week of September. The beginning of a new term seems to bring with it a wonderful opportunity to start again. To set new goals and intentions. This is the week I like to plan trips and write down the things I want to start. This is the week of seasonal change, a drop in temperature and the time to dig out a few warm clothes. 
And September is of course the perfect time to pick up your yoga practice, if it’s dropped off during the summer. It’s the week that all of us can start again. That’s what September feels like to me. A fresh start, turning a clean page a new me.

Happy new year! For further details about Elisa’s West London yoga classes & overseas retreats visit
