The human body, at peace with itself
Is more precious than the rarest gem
Cherish your body, it is yours this one time only
The human form is won with difficulty
It is easy to lose
All worldly things are brief
Like lightening in the sky
This life you must know
As the tiny splash of a raindrop
A thing of beauty that disappears even as it comes into being
Therefore set your goal
Make use of every day and night
To achieve it
Thank you to yoga teacher Norman Blair for sharing this beautiful poem by 14th Century Tibetan Meditation teacher Tsongkapa

Up until a few years ago I guess you could say I was a bit of a yoga purist and the pilates classes I had been to had always seemed, well, rather dry in comparison! Not so Jeannie di Bon’s Creattiva Pilates in Hinchley Wood.
I have found Jeannie’s real passion for anatomy and movement combined with her thorough understanding of the pilates system to be incredibly complimentary to my yoga practice and to my core strength and stability. Yoga and pilates together make a super rewarding combination and the idea that they are opposing disciplines, where if you practice one you don’t need the other, isn’t necessary. Joseph Pilates himself was a keen practitioner of yoga and it’s fascinating to see the influence of yoga asana on pilates poses…
I am thrilled to be part of the team at Creattiva and I am available at the studio for private yoga sessions and small group classes.
