Be beautiful on the inside!

I had a beautiful conversation with one of my fave yogis last night about food, diet and things we put into our body! Of course we are bombarded these days with more information than we can possibly digest on diets, detox’s, low fat foods, body image… the list goes on! It becomes hard to know […]

Explore yoga at home!

When I did my teacher training there was a big emphasis on ‘personal practise’, “this is when as a yoga teacher you truly find your inspiration and creativity to then pass on in your classes.” Thinking about these words, I think this applies to everyone.

The Best Wake Up….

I’m a little amazed that I’m still really enjoying getting up at 6.30am (you get so much more done with your day)! As the sun is coming up, spending an hour or so self practising Asana (the postures) and Pranayama (breath control), with some incense burning, candles on and all is still and quiet here […]

Mood Boosters this Winter – Smoothie time

So OK they say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I think they are right! I wont allow myself to buy cereal, as will quite happily sit and eat the whole box and I don’t think that is what they mean by ‘healthy’ but there are so many different options to […]
