Yoga Through the Year

Study with the author

Here's what people had to say about my Yoga Through the Year book:
"I found this book so inspiring and it has had a big impact on me. It has helped me to bring my daily yoga practice into a more integrated and balanced practice that is inclusive of the Earth and the seasonal flow of life. Reading this book has empowered me to approach my yoga practice more creatively, with sensitivity to how I am feeling and in alignment with the season. It brings me into greater harmony with myself and into greater balance with the Earth around me."

Praise for Jilly's Online Workbooks

“Having read the brilliant 'Yoga Through the Year' book I was intrigued to try out the Summer Solstice unit of Jilly's online Seasonal Yoga course. What appealed particularly was the self-study aspect - I love learning, always have my nose in a yoga book and was keen to enrich my experience of seasonal yoga. This flexibility means that I can access the course when it suits me and for as much or as little time as I have available - I'll often pause part-way through a unit, make a note of the meditation questions and mull them over for a few days before coming back to the course later. The short, carefully crafted modules will fit into the smallest of windows and there is plenty of new material which is not included in the 'Yoga Through the Year' book. 


The layout is visually beautiful and very appealing - the lovely illustrations, colourful photos and short video clips really draw you in. I treated myself to a pretty notebook in which I record nuggets from the course, alongside my own observations, reflections and ideas. I'll often come back to these during the week to remind myself of what I have written or to include the suggestions in my home practice... I have found the course both stimulating and therapeutic and it has enabled me to become my own life coach by using Jilly's wise and gentle prompts. If you have been considering trying the course, I would say don't hesitate! I am sure you will love it as much as I do.”

Autumn Equinox 21-Day Challenge

Life can feel like you're on a treadmill and getting nowhere fast. You're constantly busy doing things that don't really matter and aren't aligned to your true purpose in life.

The 21-Day Autumn Equinox Challenge asks you to commit between 5-15 minutes a day to do a Seasonal Yoga activity. Some days you will contemplate upon seasonal meditation questions; other days you will do a simple yoga sequence, or a meditation, or visualisation, breathing practice, or affirmation. The activities are designed to help you to connect to your inner wisdom, and can be easily fitted into the busiest of days.

Walking Meditation & the 7 Chakras

Walk Your Way to Happiness!
Walking Meditation is one of the best ways I know to relieve stress and calm an anxious mind. It’s ideally suited for those times when you want to meditate but don’t want to spend more time sitting still. It’s also a way of getting some gentle exercise and getting outside to enjoy the beauty of the season. Many people find it’s a way of freeing up their ideas and of magically finding creative solutions to difficult problems.
