Top 10 Yoga playlist..

June 12, 2017

To play music or not to play music? I’m constantly saying that yoga is a personal journey and music, like all your other choices, is a personal decision. In a lot of classes, yoga is practiced in a silent room, with just the sound of your own and other’s breath to guide you in and […]

Yoga for weight loss..

May 29, 2017

When you think of a yoga class, normally the first thing that springs to mind is not weight loss or the calories you may burn during a session. People turn to yoga for many reasons, greater flexibility, mental calm, but it is not something people who want to lose weight usually think of as an […]

Community spirit…

May 13, 2017

I have said time and time again, that yoga is a personal journey. Just you, your breath, your body and the present moment. Withdrawing the senses and zoning out for that precious time of the day that you practice. There is a saying “If you own your own breath, no one can steal your peace” […]

To me, core is everything. You can have an impressive six-pack, be slender and […]

I recently read a quote which said “Happiness, it’s an inside job” and it seemed to sum up neatly what is so blindingly obvious but a point so many of us miss. I, like many other people spent a lot of my teenage and early twenty years feeling insecure, anxious and that I was never […]

Yoga Outside The Studio

March 29, 2017

People often ask me “how often should I practice yoga?” or, “how many classes a week should I attend?”. I’ll start with myself, how often I practiced when I was beginner outside and inside the studio and class environment. When I began Yoga I used to attend a class a week. Each time I went […]

The Yoga Body and You

March 7, 2017

yoga and you well-being

Yoga for me is all about physical and mental well-being. I believe when either is unbalanced or ignored, the body will not work in harmony and general health will be impacted. People have often said to me “Isn’t yoga just sitting around breathing, chanting and lying down?”. My answer is always, well yes, but that disciplined, […]
