Are you adidas or Nike? Where do you stand with Nike vs adidas? I’m not expecting you to answer that, but it’s a question I’ve been asked a couple of times lately, so I thought I’d address it on here. To get straight to the point, I am both and neither. Nike vs adidas isn’t really a ‘thing’ in my mind, they are just two awesome sportswear brands doing their thing. As a blogger I 100% believe that, as well as motivating you with tips and knowledge, it is my job to share with you all of the things I love,… View Post

Obonjan Review: The Do’s & Don’ts Rather than write you a big long Obonjan review I thought doing a list like this would be easier to for me to get the important points across. These are the things I really wanted to share with you about Obonjan, so for anyone heading out there before this season comes to a close or for those of you intrigued and thinking about booking it next year, have a read. DO set your alarm early for 7:30am yoga on the decking. Whether rain or shine (yes, we had one morning of thunder & lightening),… View Post

As a yoga teacher and wellbeing blogger, I pretty much spend my life in activewear and could not be happier to see how the activewear industry has evolved over the last few years. When I first started my blogging journey, it was still pretty tough to find a good technical and well-fitting pair of leggings in a bright colour or with a snazzy pattern. Now we’re spoilt for choice and I’m loving it. From lifestyle fitness wear to technical and functional pieces, there’s an item of clothing for any and every activity… including the luxurious leggings that you wear to… View Post

Some of you may have seen one of my recent Instagram posts about my new yoga toy… my Yogi Bare yoga wheel. I was very honest with you in saying that prior to now I haven’t used one and I didn’t really get why people did, as I couldn’t work out the benefit (how close-minded of me!). Since getting one from a very good friend of mine a few weeks ago, I can officially say that I love it, especially as I struggle with back pain quite a lot. A few people have requested that I do an introductory blog post… View Post

Firstly I want to start this post by saying I’m still not sure I’ve found the absolute best running trainers for me, but that could be down to my many knee and joint issues. Now that I write those words down, I know that the issue isn’t with the trainers, it’s with the way I run and the problems I continuously have with my EDS III. These three pairs are definitely the best I’ve tried and I actually run in all of them still – I have a pair at my parent’s house, a pair at my home and then a pair… View Post

As I sit writing this blog post I’m in quite a lot of discomfort, which is making me feel pretty grouchy and sad. I know this isn’t a particularly ‘sexy’ post, no wonderful yoga poses or tips to get your beach body, but it’s a post featuring tips for bloating that I’ve been meaning to write for quite a while, but for some reason I’ve put it off maybe because I was being silly and shy about it. The fact is that right now the waist band of my trousers is feeling pretty damn tight (even though it was too… View Post

Just a little blog post from me today with some exciting news – I’m getting ready for a yoga teacher training Thailand experience! On September 8th, I’ll be hopping on a plane and heading to Thailand for seven weeks, six weeks of which will be spent doing my advanced teacher training course! As the day of my flight gets closer and closer, the nerves seem to be drifting away and I’m feeling very excited about it all. After completing my 200hrs yoga teacher training course in London, I was left with a thirst for more knowledge and this thirst has… View Post

As my regular readers will know, last week I decided to take my Apple Watch off and go for a week without wearable tech. You can read about the reasons why here. The great thing was that not only did I take it off, but I actually went to the deepest depths of Wales and left it at home, so there was no going back. Another plus is that where we stay in Wales has barely any phone signal or 3G, so I was without my fitness tracker and also any form of fitness app. Here’s what I learnt from… View Post

In every vinyasa flow yoga class and many other styles of yoga class you’ll find a few sun salutations, but sometimes I feel like three basic surya namaskara A’s and three surya namaskara B’s can be a little boring if that’s what you’re used to all the time. That’s not to say I don’t love a simple sun salutation, I really do. Many mornings you’ll find me on my mat breathing through three of each to help energise my body for the day ahead, but it’s good to know that there are many sun salutation variations. The obvious way to… View Post

This week I’m off to Wales for a much needed few days to relax with my favourite human and have been thinking about detaching from all fitness technology for the week as a little experiment. Pembrokeshire in Wales is one my absolute favourite places to go to, as my family have been going there since my Dad was a boy, so it holds a very special place in my heart. Rob and I love it because we stay right near the coast, so it’s the perfect place for lots of hiking and trail running. Check out my DIY active holiday… View Post
