It’s been about seven years since I went to my very first yoga class and a lot has changed. Both physically and mentally within myself and a lot has changed within the yoga world too. That first yoga class at my local leisure centre with my mum was a day I won’t ever forget because I realised that yoga was not at all what I thought it was. I wanted to write a blog post about what I have learned from the practice over the past seven years, from being both a practitioner and also a teacher. In case you… View Post

The darker days are drawing in, which makes me so sad, but all is not lost! Pink activewear is top of list, actually pink EVERYTHING. If you don’t follow me on Instagram (why not?! 😉 ) , you’ll always be seeing the latest additions to my activewear wardrobe, most of which seem to be either sleek black or dusky pink. These are the pink activewear pieces I’m loving for September, bringing the playful vibes to all of my gym sessions and yoga classes. S’well water bottle – okay, okay, it’s not pink, but it’s still awesome! Reebok Hayasu trainers Reebok… View Post

In the yoga world we hear the term “intention setting” thrown around a lot. I’m one of those teachers who asks my students to set an intention at the beginning of class, sometimes offering up a suggested intention and other times letting my students cultivate something for themselves. I got thinking the other day though, there are many of us who won’t know much about intention setting and why it is beneficial, so here’s the what, why and how. The next time you’re journaling, in a yoga class or just ready to kick start your week in a positive way,… View Post

This blog post contains a paid advertorial with Yushoi. When it comes to yoga, finding balance is something that doesn’t just come overnight. I hear students say to me all the time “I have such terrible balance” – it’s just a question of patiently working through postures to strength certain areas of the body. Naturally everyone thinks of the core when it comes to finding balance and yes, that’s such an important part of it. Having a strong core will stabilise your structure from the inside out, giving a sense of uplift from the ground no matter what posture we… View Post

All views are my own.  It could be assumed that a hiking holiday is just a holiday in which you do a few easy walks and a lot of chilling out, but as those of you who have been following along with my social channels will know, when I go on an amazing hiking holiday, I tend to squeeze in as many long and tough walks as possible! The beautiful thing about hiking is that it’s for EVERYONE. No matter your fitness level, shape, size etc, you can find… View Post

Social media has definitely made the ‘morning routine’ a bit of a ‘thing’ in recent years, especially in the wellness industry, with many of us showing you what we do each morning (myself included) – be it a mediation session, a flawless-looking porridge or smoothie bowl, a 6am sweaty fitness class or putting together a perfectly matching activewear set. I’m not saying that these things don’t happen, but for me, they don’t happen every single day. I asked for YouTube video requests and to film my morning routine came up quite a few times, which is what led me to… View Post

This blog post contains a paid for advertorial for G Adventures. All views are my own. Hiking has been part of my family for many years, with my Grandparents taking my Dad for long walks in Wales when he was young. We still go to the same part of Wales now as a family and do some of the same walks, which is such a nice tradition. For me, hiking is such a beautiful way to connect with Mother Nature and to become mindful about the great outdoors around us. With technology as amazing as it is these days, it… View Post

A yo-yo digestive system is something I’ve struggled with for years, so yoga for digestion really helps me.  One day one item of food seems to fully agree with me and the next it’s sending my tummy all over the place, churning and growling. Those are the times when I can’t quite put my finger on the exact problem, but then there are times when I know exactly why I’m bloated or in a little bit of pain. Usually it’s either down to travelling – I never eat on flights unless I’ve prepped the food myself, but even eating just… View Post
