Cyber Crime and Data Breach Considerations for Small Businesses

by Claire Squire, Balens Ltd

Did you know, of Cyber Crime cases reported to Action Fraud, that 35% of all cases relate to business with less than 10 employees? And a whopping 59% to businesses with less than 50?  This suggests Small businesses may be particularly vulnerable to data protection breaches. The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), defines a personal data breach as:

“A breach of security leading to the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of or access to, personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed.”


Essentially any cyber-attack that renders personal data unavailable to the business or available to unauthorized persons is a Data Breach. Where this affect the rights and freedoms of individuals it needs to be to be notified to the supervisory authority within 72 hours. The GDPR brought in new Rights for Data Subjects including redress in the event of a Data Breach, incorporating non-material damages and distress. Data Subjects can support their own claims against a business by submitting a Data Subject Access Request under their Right of Access, to discover what happened with their data, and how the breach occurred. With PPI Claims now brought to a close, there is evidence that PPI lawyers are moving their attention to data breach claims. This may pose a potential risk, particularly for SME Businesses.

What can you do to protect yourself?

  • Consider your Risk Management – identification, analysis and control of the risks;
  • Manufacturers have built in two factor authentications for logging into systems and portable devices – these should be turned on and used;
  • Password protection can be a good way of protecting documents where available.  The latest software versions can provide very good protection, so even if attackers are able to enter a system, the personal data may still be secure;
  • Think ahead.  What will you do in the first 24 hours of a cyber-attack, particularly if your system is locked out and you don’t have access to it?  Are there telephone numbers or security details that it would be helpful to have in a separate secure location?
  • You may consider Cyber Liability Insurance to protect yourself and your business in the event of a cyber-attack.  Insurance can cover such areas as:
    • Assistance and costs in the event of a Data Breach;
    • Hacker damage;
    • Unintentional transmission of a virus;
    • Ransomware – cyber extortion;
    • Business Interruption - compensation for loss of income in the event of an attack that prevents you earning revenue and;
    • Crisis containment – offering expert support to mitigate reputational damage.

Getting good quality advice from a reputable broker is always advisable to ensure that you have the right cover for you own specific business requirements. It will be important to consider the needs of your specific business, its size and complexity to ensure your peace of mind if the worst were to occur. However, these simple steps may help you to control the risks and effects of a potential cyber-attack.

From Field to Face – Natural Beauty from The Linseed Farm

Sussex-based The Linseed Farm is launching a capsule range of skin care products, which showcase its principal ingredient: farm fresh English linseed.

The new range comprises two face and body creams; Natural Linseed Cream Unscented and Natural Linseed Cream Lavender and Chamomile as well as a Natural Linseed Soap Bar.  The range is supremely hydrating and antibacterial to boot. The products are unisex and suitable for all ages (with the exception of children under 3) and all skin types.

Linseed Cream poster

These innovative new products were launched at Olympia Beauty 29-30 September, the autumn’s biggest event for beauty professionals. Cleopatra was famed for her flawless beauty and reputed to bathe in asses’ milk. The reason it kept her skin looking so peachy-perfect was because of its high Omega 3 content. Modern-day beauties can get the same result from the benefits of linseed oil, naturally high in Omega 3.

Natural Linseed Cream Unscented & Natural Linseed Cream Lavender & Chamomile

Rich in ALA and Omega 3, both Natural Linseed Creams are powerfully hydrating, soothing, nourishing and calming.  They represent gentle care for face and body. Lavender and Chamomile offer an extra layer of evocative, comforting scent reminiscent of nature, while the unscented version ensures there’s something for everyone.  The Creams are packaged in airless pumps.

Natural Linseed Soap Bar

Gentle, hydrating and cleansing, this 100% natural soap is a dream to use for all areas of the face and body. Packaged in tissue with a paper label it’s planet-friendly and ideal for anyone looking to reduce plastic. Linseed has many different health benefits being one of the richest sources of omega 3 poly-unsaturated fatty acids, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and containing over 50% omega 3. Also, being plant based, it’s a great vegetarian and vegan skin ingredient. Here, it’s been put to exceedingly good use to extend the benefits of linseed oil to the outside as well as the inside!

Farmer and producer Durwin Banks commented,

I always believed our linseed oil would make a marvellous skin cream as it is so deeply hydrating. In fact, I’ve been experimenting with different versions over the years and this is the culmination of all our research and experience. At The Linseed Farm, we all believe passionately in our products and their health benefits.”

About The Linseed Farm

Siblings Durwin Banks and Wendy Dorkings run The Linseed Farm as a family partnership in Barns Green near Horsham, West Sussex.  They are actively involved in the day to day running of the farm and love working together as a team producing the finest cold-pressed linseed oil and ground linseed for their customers across the UK and beyond.

They come from a long tradition of farmers and started growing and pressing Linseed (flax seed) in the year 2000.  The siblings believe they are the only farm growing, pressing or milling their seed and selling it direct to the public. Their Unique Selling Point is freshness. And, customers have told them that no other oil they have tried comes close. The new range is also antimicrobial and antifungal.

The range is available from the website: and selected retailers.




Flowers Impact on Improving our Mental & Emotional Health

The Australian Aboriginals specifically utilized the healing qualities of the flower energetic essence, for the maintenance & stability of mental & emotional health. They particularly understood the link between the mind & the body and observed that "where the emotions went, the mind and body would soon follow”. It’s interesting to note that a team of researchers in a 10-month study of participant's emotional & behavioural responses to receiving flowers have explored the link between flowers and a sense of life satisfaction. The results revealed that flowers are a health promoting and natural moderator of moods.[1]

Clockwise: Waratah, Wattle, Sturt Pea, Boab

Clockwise: Waratah, Wattle, Sturt Pea, Boab

In the study, the response of the participants of all age groups upon receiving flowers was delighted smiles and extraordinary expressions of gratitude. This reaction was universal and had an impact on their immediate happiness. The study participants reported feeling less anxious, stressed and depressed, after receiving flowers, which had a long-term positive uplifting effect on their moods, specifically invoking a higher sense of enjoyment and ease.

"Common sense tells us that flowers make us happy," said Dr. Haviland-Jones. "Now, science shows that not only do flowers make us happier than we know, they have strong positive effects on our emotional wellbeing."[1]

The Flower Essence of Australia are particular suited in supporting the maintenance of our emotional and mental sense of wellbeing & freedom from the detrimental effects that  negative thought patterns & emotional trauma, that if left unchecked can create in the physical body . As we look after & maintain our car so that it runs smoothly equally it’s proved to be important to do the same for all aspect of our being.

Boab: Supports releasing inherited attitudes and states of mind allowing mental freedom by clearing negative thoughts, and mindsets.

Sturt Desert Pea: Releasing past emotional wounds and trauma, grief and deep seated sadness, supporting a fresh start and emotional ease

Waratah: Survival Essence, dark night of the soul, depression, deep despair, support courage optimism, inner strength & tenacity and clear vision.

Southern Cross: Positive abundant mindset, letting go of past negativity, and victim mentality supporting empowerment.

Sunshine Wattle: Positivity and optimism: Lifting out of past and the mindset that life is hard and meant to be a struggle, allows the life affirming thought that the universe will provide and support us in the flow of life.

Christmas Bell:  Manifestation of dreams into reality eliminates any belief in lack, and un-deservedness.

Bottom: Craniosacral Course 2019

Small groups help to facilitate this experience.Turning Point teachers are enthusiastic and experienced practicing therapists who keep their knowledge up to date.

The philosophy of Turning Point encompasses the idea that medicine is an art informed by science. We believe that the conventional materialist paradigm is very much out of date and that scientific knowledge has now reached a point where much of holistic medicine can incorporated into a new paradigm.

Turning Point courses introduce the concepts of research and encourage students to critically evaluate current information.

  • Craniosacral therapy is based on the relation of the relationship between the structure and function of the body and health. Specific, gentle and skilled manipulation can restore the structure-function relationship supporting the patients’ own homeostatic mechanisms. This non-invasive and safe therapy can be used on patients of all ages from the new-born to the elderly.
    The Level 1 Practitioner Course consists of 7 modules over 8 days including practical tuition. In addition students have to complete a portfolio of cases and complete an exam. Practical skills are assessed during the course. This course is recognised by the CMA.
    Level 2, Advanced CST consists of five modules; Mother/Baby and Reproductive, Visceral, Immune System and Lymphatics; Physical and Emotional Trauma, and Dental, Facial and Cranial Base. Assessment is via Case studies.
    These courses are led By Jonathan Lawrence
  • Homotoxicology is based on the idea that disease results from toxic load. In modern life we are subject to toxins from a variety of sources. This has the effect of stressing the immune system leading to ill health. Accurate prescribing can help the body to gently detoxify aiding the restoration of homeostasis.
    The remedies used are be single potency homeopathic remedies or combinations of remedies to achieve a specific physiological response.
    There is access to online training via the Society of Homotoxicology
    We provide further courses in Electro Acupuncture According to Voll (EAV) for suitably qualified students. This involves electro-acupuncture assessment of meridans and clinical application of findings.
    Training is via small tutorial groups led by Rosemary Lawrence.

The Ayurvedic Professionals Association (APA) Representing Ayurvedic Professionals

Dating back over 5000 years, Ayurveda is a continuous healthcare system. Originating from India, Ayurveda is considered one of the oldest documented biological science and yet it represents so much more than the conventional understanding of a science, philosophy or healthcare because of the holistic approach to maintaining health.


Hyperlink to

The Ayurvedic Professionals association (APA) represents Ayurvedic professionals within the UK and is a non-profit, voluntary organisation. The APA maintains a register of Ayurvedic professionals in the UK who are bound by the code of ethics set by the APA all of whom have full insurance to practice Ayurveda within the UK.

The APA as a professional organisation monitors members, all of whom need to show Continues Professional Development and learning (CPD), as well as current insurance in order to remain on the APA database. Additionally we encourage APA members to update their profiles and include contact information on the APA web site

Ayurveda includes many topics, health, diet, herbs, surgery, massage, body therapies, oils, food classification, body types…

But can something so old still be relevant? The APA believe the answer is Yes. Ayurveda has possibly never been more relevant. The emphasis now is moving towards prevention but given the over-burdened NHS crippled by increasing lifestyle health problems the need for Ayurveda will the APA believe increase as Ayurveda is well suited to help with lifestyle and diet changes. The APA is not however able to comment on individual health conditions, nor recommend treatment or suggest APA members. Health consultations should be made directly with the individual APA Doctor, Practitioner, Therapist or Associate Therapist all of whom can be found on the APA web site

Ayurvedic Practitioners work with the individual, not diagnosing a disease nor labelling, but trying to understanding the path or cause that led to a problem. A simple example of a bucket overflowing, which will continue to spread water unchecked unless the tap is turned off. Ayurveda believes it is vital to understand not just the current situation, but also the history behind the presenting problem, in other words to find the tap and turn it off.

Further Information

If you are interested in Ayurveda the next step is to visit the APA site to find a fully trained Ayurvedic professional in your area.




IRENE: Still helping clients at 80 Years Young!

      When it comes to Irene Royal Jelly — nothing else compares

Irene Stein is not your average 80 year old. She is fit, healthy, and energetic and, when not working on her business, she is out playing a game of tennis or two and enjoying life to the fullest. Not only this, her flawless complexion has many second guessing her age and not an inch of grey can be found in her full head of hair.

"l think it is true to say that I don't actually resemble my 80 years. Things like memory, retention, absorption, clarity, focus, agility, and I still seem to be firing on all cylinders. During the early part of my experiences with Royal Jelly, I was fascinated by the way in which my mother, Sophie’s (pictured below) arthritis disappeared completely in her late 70's and I watched her greying hair turn back to its natural colour.”

Irene Stein, Sophie + Irene Product

Sophie was born of 6 brothers and sisters all with heart problems and she outlived them all.

Around 30,000 people worldwide have incorporated Irene’s Royal Jelly into their daily diet including professional athletes, showbiz celebrities and members of the British Royal Family with famous faces including Queen Elizabeth, Prince Phillip, Princess Diana, Fergie Duchess of York and Cliff Richard, along with an increasing number of Men, for whom improvements in Hair regrowth, Prostate problems, Heart conditions, Strokes, Arthritis and Libido are regularly experienced.

"I have as many people making this “a-way-of-life” as taking it just for a specific condition, since it is cumulative and there are many ongoing benefits. I have always had a number of Practitioners sharing my vision and recommending the product to their patients as well as the biggest growth being the recommendation from 1 person to another."

"From this amazing learning experience," she concluded, "I still continue to astonish myself with the results that I see and hear about. I am still passionate and thrilled to bits with the way in which my unique formulation changes peoples' lives, and have no intention of retiring. Why would I give up my magnificent obsession?"

This miraculous Formula is the most superior/ potent Royal Jelly Formulation in the market place today and there is a Report explaining this available for you to read. Irene has worked with two Masters in the field of Complex Homeopathy and plant knowledge.

Irene believes Royal Jelly is something that needs to be discussed before use, and therefore does not feel it should be sitting on the shelves of Selfridges, Harrods, Holland and Barrett and Boots as previously. She is more than happy to provide more information to those who are interested and discuss their conditions and needs to provide the best plan to suit them.

The Listening Centre London – Authentic Tomatis Listening Therapy

The Listening (Voice, Music & Language) Centre London was founded in 2001 by Ella Williams Consultant Practitioner and Performer, and is one of few centres worldwide still offering Listening therapy in its original form as developed and advised by Dr Tomatis.

The Listening Centre London

The original Tomatis uses analogue sound and not digital - that is taped music rather than CDs. The implications of this are profound.  The brain doesn’t work in a digital way! Contrary to what might be propagated about digital sound being superior, the important fact is that the brain does not process information, auditory or otherwise in a digital way. The use of digital sound in any therapy is fundamentally flawed. The question of digital versus analogue is literally a ‘no brainer’. It is true that tapes degrade, but tapes are regularly replenished, which means that the sound quality is not compromised

An integral aspect of the original therapy is supervised active microphone work of chanting, music making, singing or reading, allowing musicians and indeed all clients to make adjustments naturally and effortlessly to their own vocal or musical output. For children, the use of the Mother's voice is an important part of the therapy, as Dr Tomatis believed our desire to communicate is activated by hearing our Mother's voice in utero. Only in the context of a centre will there be professional feedback and audiometric testing to confirm that changes are taking place. It is an effort worth making.

DIY, for home use devices appear to be more convenient and an easier way to do the therapy; however the daily, on the spot, observation and guidance of the therapist cannot be underestimated or undervalued. At a centre you are assessed and treated with the reassurance that the specialized equipment used is maintained and functions as it should.  Furthermore many clients appreciate this special time just for themselves; the treatment is both invigorating and relaxing. Removing yourself from daily distractions and making time in a comfortable and different environment enables you to let yourself relax sufficiently to fully immerse yourself in the process. Tomatis said that ultimately it is the therapist that brings the healing, or as one of my clients said, “holds Jacob’s ladder”. Many people appreciate the exchange of thoughts and ideas in an encouraging atmosphere.

GEOVITAL T98, the shielding paint for the most effective protection against HF electromagnetic radiation

T98 is an electrically conductive primer for shielding against, and the leading away, of radiation. By applying two coats on a surface, shielding effectiveness of 99.999% against high frequency radiation can be achieved. In technical language, this equates to a protective attenuation of up to 50dB, and this at frequencies of up to 10Ghz!!! Also showing exceptional performance to the highest level tested at the time, 20 Ghz! (You need performance at the higher frequencies where it matters most)


Radiofrequency (RF) Radiation / Microwaves / High Frequency

T98 shielding paint effectively functions as a mirror and bounces the RF radiation back. In our latest formula 15% of the RF is absorbed and so what is bounced back is less. The normal approach is to essentially create a box which provides protection from all sides and creates a much lower RF exposure inside.


Electric field radiation from wiring / Low Frequency

In the process of applying T98 it should be grounded. Once grounded the surfaces protected with T98 are grounded and will help lead away the electric field exposure that is caused by having electrical wiring in the wall or ceiling behind the paint.

Why is T98 so different and the only shielding paint worthwhile?

Geovital developed this shielding paint with long-term successes for patients of our clinic as the benchmark and a clear realisation that the 0 to 4 Ghz range should not only be focused on. As the long-term health of our clinic’s patients/clients has always been the aim, short-term success with possibility of long-term problems was unacceptable to us. T98 sets the world standard in both shielding effectiveness and suitability for long-term natural health strategies.

The paint has a purely acrylic base. It is breathable, solvent-free and has extremely low emissions. It can easily be applied on dry, clean, grease-free solid surfaces with a rough surface roller (Available at hardware stores).

IMPORTANT: Shielding paint does not shield against low frequency magnetic fields from sources like transmission lines (the big walkers), street powerlines, power supply cables to the property, the power cables of a meter box etc. If this is you main problem, speak to one of our consultants or offices.

IMPORTANT: T98 must be grounded!

In accordance with current EU legislation, Geovital advises that all surfaces must be grounded by a qualified electrician. This may also be an insurance requirement.

Soft Tissue Therapy Training – Beyond Massage

LSSM has been going for over 30 years, built on the pioneering work of its principal tutor Mel Cash. He wrote the first ever book on Sports Massage in 1988 followed by the first text books on Remedial Massage (1996) and Soft Tissue Therapy (2012).

We are unique because we have developed our own customised BTEC qualification based on the clinical experiences that Mel and his incredible team of therapist/tutors. Many have been teaching with him for decades, they are all leading soft tissue specialist and several are now also great Osteopaths. The team has been together for so long they are like a family and the fun they have working together soon rubs off on the students. We believe you learn best when you are having fun doing it.


Our BTEC Level 5 Soft Tissue Therapy qualification is the only one of its kind in the UK and cannot be compared with the more common ITEC/VTCT and other Sports Massage courses because these are more limited in their scope of practice. Our course has been developed with two key aims:

  • To train therapist to best meet the needs of todays’ clients;
  • To give therapists the most stimulating and rewarding life-time careers.

And we are very proud of the way we are achieving both of these.

We call it “Soft Tissue Therapy” because we are no longer defined by the word ‘massage’. We include advanced techniques which improve the way the nervous system makes the muscles work and so have a much more profound effect than just massage. These can also be done through clothes if necessary which is particularly useful when treating elderly or disabled clients.

Soft Tissue Therapy is all about treating and preventing minor and chronic injuries caused by any of life’s stresses, including medical conditions, so it is something that just about everyone needs at some time. These problems are no longer being properly dealt with by the NHS because of funding cutbacks so demand for the work we do is now growing strongly.

And We Still do Sports Massage!

We began in 1989 as the very first school in the UK to teach Sports Massage. This original 6- month course is still the foundation and first part of the one-year Soft Tissue Therapy course we run today. So by the time students are half way through the Level 5 course they can already work effectively as Sports Massage Therapist and could start earning money then. And when they gain their Level 5 they can advertise as both Sports Massage and Soft Tissue Therapists.

Alexander Technique, Inhibition and Autopilot

by Alan Bignell

Extracted from Bloomsbury Alexander Centre


I recently flew back to the UK from a family holiday in Brazil. Our plane, a spanking new Boeing 777 almost certainly flew a good part of the 11 hour journey on autopilot and these days may even have landed on it too. What on earth has a plane’s autopilot got to do with inhibition you might reasonably ask. Well, quite a lot I believe but more of that later.

In my understanding inhibition used in the Alexander Technique sense means saying no to reacting to a stimulus in my habitual manner. For instance, the doorbell rings and the only thing on my mind is getting to the door to see who might be there. The whole moving process takes place mechanically dictated by unconscious habits adopted unknowingly over many years. If those habits were good ones it would be one thing. Unfortunately it’s usually quite the opposite.

Alan Bignall + Autopilot

By bringing about the pause we call ‘inhibition’ I give myself the possibility of responding to a stimulus in a way that I choose, not one inflicted on me by my habits. My actions (or more likely my reactions) which almost certainly have been totally mechanical up to that point now have the possibility of becoming more conscious. However touching a more conscious level is not something we are very familiar with. Reacting mechanically to events remains the norm for most of us and perhaps can be compared to the autopilot at the beginning of this piece.

It seems to me we go through most of our lives operating on as it were our own personal autopilot. On one level it works more or less tolerably. It gets me to work, it does my job, it can even get me through my social relationships up to a point. However the autopilot isn’t the pilot. He almost never seems to be on the flight deck. Only rarely, perhaps in moments of crisis, does he take over the controls and even then it’s usually only for a few fleeting moments.

So how do we get in touch with our pilot or at least go towards him? As suggested earlier, one way is by working with inhibition. Inhibition coupled with direction brings us back towards a tangible awareness of the body and what is happening inside it. When I make this effort, it often comes as a real surprise to discover a body full of tensions. Even more astonishing is the realisation that these tensions have been there all along but I hadn’t the slightest awareness of them. Unfortunately, insights such as these can be all too easily taken negatively. I am reminded of a pupil who arrived for her third or fourth Alexander lesson looking thoroughly dejected.

“What happened?” I asked.

“I’m so depressed came the reply. “This week I noticed I do everything wrong.”

“But you’ve been doing everything wrong for the last thirty years.” I said. “Last week was the first time you actually noticed it. Don’t you think that might be a step in the right direction?”

“Oh I never thought of it that way.” she replied already visibly brighter.

In my opinion this ‘seeing’ of my state without self-criticism or judgement is the first essential step in the process of allowing change to take place. Returning to the parallel with the autopilot, inhibition is similar to the moment when the captain first takes back hands on control of the plane. It’s the interruption to the mechanical piloting of the plane and all its systems. However, in our analogy, the pilot is seldom seen on the flight deck. As a result the plane is so used to running on autopilot, it has almost forgotten it has a pilot at all.

This partially explains why it is so difficult to remember to inhibit. Why it’s only after I’ve stood up or completed a movement that I remember I’ve forgotten to inhibit, let alone direct. This might not be as bad as it seems. A very wise man told me many years ago that it was alright to forget but not to forget you’ve forgotten. Difficult as it is to remember to inhibit movements of the body, it is even more of a challenge to bring the idea of inhibition to other aspects of my life. For instance, if someone criticises me in what I consider to be an unjust way, my reaction is immediate. My hackles rise and often before I know it, words are tumbling out of my mouth that I may later regret.

An exasperated student on an Alexander Training Course I was visiting graphically expressed the frustration many of us feel. “Three years of practising inhibition here and I still find myself screaming at my kids when I go home.” he bemoaned.

If it were possible to inhibit at the very moment when something upsets me or criticises me then my response could be different. However this is a very tall order for most of us and perhaps we need to practise more on inhibiting our habitual body movements first. There are certainly more than enough of them to be going on with.

Responding to Anxiety and Stress – Evolving Ascension Tools 

by Sarah Williams 

These 2 factors are the main problem for everyone now as ‘time’ seems to disappear rapidly leaving us somewhat breathless, wondering how we can achieve everything on our ‘to do lists’. We may then feel anxious, often with fluttery tummies and feelings of being ungrounded and unsafe in some way.

Responding to Anxiety and Stress

Nervous System Support (Left)Ultimate Stress Relief (Right)

Our adrenals ( situated on top of the kidneys) adjust the normal balance in our bodies via the blood and nervous system, as we naturally turn up the cortisol hormone in order to instruct the body to behave in such a way that will facilitate us to cope with challenging situations. Blood is redirected from normal areas of the body i.e. digestive tract, guiding it towards the sensory organs and muscles in a typical ‘fight or flight’ response. Effective ways to alleviate stress and anxiety are meditation, breathing deeply and practising mindfulness. Where you feel the stress in your body depends on why you feel it and the emotional reaction you are having to any stressful situation – the science known as psycho-neuro immunology. The body mind connection harnesses messages sent via the nervous systems. These neural pathways now require additional support.

The Shift from Carbon base to Crystalline Structure bodies

Have you been wondering lately why you seem so tired - almost to the point of exhaustion, or feeling irritable, angry, lonely, sad, frustrated, or all of the above, and you can’t figure out why? Have you been asking yourself why you’re behaving in ways, or feeling things, that don’t seem to fit with who you know yourself to be, or that just don’t make any sense? Since 2012, our bodies have been going through a very unique experience which includes become less carbon based and increasingly silica or crystalline. This is due to the new light codes coming from our sun which in turn is affecting and upgrading our DNA. It all has to do with the light energy that’s penetrating us, our world, and everything on it, easing us into the new world and a new way of being. So you could say that it isn’t just Nova (new)Earth we’re building, it’s Nova (new)Human as well. Our bodies are literally evolving! Welcome to the ascension process; the symptoms are listed on my website here

List of Common Ascension Symptoms

  1. Feeling as though you are in a pressure cooker or intense energy or stress;
  2. Old patterns and behaviours are being pushed to the surface for release. This can increase feelings of fear. Anxiety, panic, and feelings of hysteria and are all indications that you are on overload. Rest and recharge are the best plan now. Get into nature, sleep , meditate and give yourself a break!

It’s not what happens but how we choose to respond to the changes. We can remind ourselves to be positive and check out the creams available on my website along with all the other vibrational tools there.. many free ones , to enable a smoother transition. Visualize your most perfect outcome and manifest away to your blissful hearts desires.

I write and teach much more about this and share personal Skype FaceTime and FB pages providing you with more information and tools to cope . Free readings are currently available to visitors to my website.

The Art of Observing and Adjusting: An Innovative Guide to Yoga Asana Adjustment for Your Postural Type

by Vayu Jung Doohwa

Published by Lotus Publishing. 2019. Paperback. £14.99 / $19.95. ISBN: 978 1 905367 94 8.


This book is for yoga practitioners of all levels. It begins with the ‘know-how’ and fundamentals of postural imbalances and guides the reader through the observation and adjustment of these imbalances, on the basis of the postural type of the practitioner.

The Art of Observing and Adjusting:

The book avoids complex anatomical references and opts instead to use over 250 simple colour diagrams and images, which make it easier to convey the ideas more clearly, and are simple for teachers and practitioners to follow during self-experimentation.

Just as a doctor would prescribe the most relevant treatment after a thorough examination and diagnosis, the teacher will be able to recognize unbalanced postural patterns through observation, and ‘prescribe’ the most appropriate alignments or adjustments. Understanding postural types will guide the teacher toward the correct adjustments in order to restore balance to the practitioner’s body.

In Part 1 of this book, the author explains how to observe imbalances. In Part 2, the reader will learn postural types systemically according to section imbalance patterns. In Part 3, the author recommends specific ways and principles of adjustment for the different postural types.

Vayu Jung Doohwa started teaching traditional Mysore-style Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga classes in his hometown of Busan in 2007, and he established the Yoga VnA studio in 2010. Since then he has been working on the contemporary scientific interpretations of the traditional Ashtanga yoga.

Vayu has held more than 100 yoga anatomy workshops in Korea and China. He has been continuously working with his teacher John Scott, sharing the insights of this book during JSY CPD program 2016, 2017 in London.

“Contemporary yoga and yoga anatomy are very alive, still rooted in tradition, but it’s time for INNOVATION! … Vayu has taken many 1% theories and practised 99% on the mat, and in his teaching revealed some extraordinary gems. This book is pure innovation and will serve the yoga community well.”

⎯John Scott, author of Ashtanga Yoga
