Q: What does May do?
A: I teach gentle meditative Zen Yoga, am a Vibroacoustic Massage with Tibetan Singing Bowl and Reiki therapist in London [see website: The Cat Pose]. I also enjoy collecting the Chinese dress Qipao (Cheongsam), appreciate vintage styles and distribute ethical non-animal testing, vegan and natural skincare as well as nutritional products from Arbonne.
Q: What is 'Walking in May' about?
A: 'Walking in May' is a blog to raise awareness about the Qipao (Cheongsam or Chinese Dress) as a respectable cultural dress and art form, demonstrate how vintage styles can be simply applied, explore how yoga, mindfulness and relaxation can improve life as well as health.
Q: How did 'Walking in May' begin?A: Still not pretending to be perfect and most likely a bit rough around the edges, 'Walking in May' started with a travel post on 13th December 2010 to voice an opinion, and grew in a real DIY manner into avenues of style, beauty, lifestyle and wellbeing.
Q: Does 'Walking in May' accept interviews, styling consultation or media requests?
A: It will depend on the nature and aim of the interview, feature, styling consultation or media request, which will be considered on a case by case basis. For Qipao or Cheongsam styling (via Skype or face to face) enquiries, reviews and any other questions please email: may[at]walkinginmay[dot]com
Q: Who is Miss May?
A: Previously an executive PA for busy directors in the city, but now a fully qualified Zen Yoga teacher, complementary therapist and founder of 'The Cat Pose' website. Living with Graves Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) and chronic rhinitis caused by several allergies, she is a firm believer in harmonious life through mindfulness and specialises in teaching gentle relaxation. Wearing a variety from high street, vintage or reproduction, so not every day is a Qipao, vintage or make-up day. Writing from gentle honesty and creative joy, she is often surrounded with meaningful questions on a spiritual path in chasing fluttering butterflies of inner true self and compassion as a practising Vajrayana Buddhist for more than 20 years.
