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

This blog post contains a paid for advertorial for G Adventures. 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 post contains a paid advertorial for Yushoi. I’m so excited to announce that I have partnered with pea-based snack brand, Yushoi, and over the coming months I will be bringing you lots of content all focusing around the word of the moment, ‘balance’! The last six months has seen the word ‘balance’ become the most over used word in the health and fitness industry, so in my blog post today I want to get you thinking a lot more about what it really means to you. First thing to know, there is no right or wrong answer to this. We… View Post

Whether it’s yoga, surfing, fitness, hiking or a mix of all activities, there are a few things that you can do to ensure you make the most of your trip and have the most fun. Having just run my first Cat Meffan Yoga Retreat and with more coming up this year I hope my lovely guests take all of these things on board. One of the first questions I was asked by most people enquiring about my yoga retreat was “is it ok to come on my own?”. By all means come with a friend, partner or family member, but… View Post

There are many debates amongst yoga practitioners about whether it’s ok to do yoga during your period, some like to steer clear of any kind of practice, others opt for limited postures and some just continue as normal. Here’s what I think… The reason there is such a debate about it and no one can agree on one answer is because WE’RE ALL DIFFERENT. And our body is constantly changing from one day to the next, not to mention our emotions, especially when that time of the month creeps around. The most important thing to think about when deciding if… View Post

When we talk about mental health care we often associate it with negativity, like someone being deeply depressed, suffering with anxiety and panic attacks or having an eating disorder (to name just a few), but what about just looking at those two words and what they stand for. The health of our mind, something that even when not dealing with any of the above issues, is crucial to a happy and healthy life. We ALL, and I stress ALL, need to look after our mental health whether we think we have an issue or not. The health of our mind… View Post

Yikes, it’s been a little while since I posted my activewear favourites on the blog! I have no clue why, as searching the world wide web for my favourite leggings is up there with my favourite things to do! 😉 Just kidding, kind of. As a lot of my post have been pretty personal and deep of late, I thought I’d do a bit of online shopping for you today instead. These are the activewear favourites that absolutely loving at the moment. And if you’re interested to see what I bought recently for my holiday, check out my latest YouTube video…… View Post

There is often the pressure to feel like everything should be perfect when you’re an ‘influencer’ (forgive me for using that word, I hate it), but right now I feel far from perfect and this is something I think you should all know. I currently feel so full from food that I feel physically sick and I just came away from crying to Rob about how rubbish I feel and how I’ve failed at sticking to my plan of eating well over the bank holiday weekend. I’ve come a VERY long way since my days of bulimia and eating disorders,… View Post
