Inspirational women. . Got to spend the day at Great Ormond St today with @happyheartflow checking in with staff and breathing... also lots of laughter. . Fizz is such an inspiration! After her tough journey through life she’s still passionate about supporting others and being the source of joy and laughter. . Go follow her page and send her some love 💕
I don’t usually post about protests but this...✌️. . Never has a protest made me tear up! Seeing people so dedicated to making a change and doing it in the most peaceful way. . There was no violence but just a whole lot of love and just some good ol’ fashion education! . So here’s my mid-week participation through social media... go educate yourself. Let’s make the government make a change! . Learn about what’s happening and how you can minimise your impact... there’s something for everyone. . Let’s look after this beautiful home hey? 🌍. . #extinctionrebellion
Flower power. . A.k.a. Nature appreciation week/month/year. . Ok so I’ll admit I hate winter... I usually moan about the dry skin, wind chill and cold hands (it doesn’t stop me going out but I love a good weather moan). . But I’ve realised more and more over the past few years that I love the UK. I love the fact we have seasons... that the environment around us is changing and growing. . The past year I’ve tried taking mindful walks when outside... no headphone, no music or podcasts. Instead enjoying the scenery around me and changing landscape. I literally get so excited at every blossom tree, flower, daisy and leaf I see now! Just seeing the new life bursting out around me. . Is anyone else in love with spring and the seasons?
PHYT (fi-gh-t) against Hanger. . Do you live with a yoga teacher? Do you have to deal with their hanger levels after they’ve been teaching? Do you make sure snacks are always packed? Are you a having to deal with insane Hanger levels? . Join our partners in Partners of Hangry Yoga Teachers of PHYT for short. . Sooo yes it’s a joke but seriously the hanger is so real after teaching! Our partners were laughing and sharing horror stories of us (@the_lovely_catalyst and I). . They’re top tips: - have snacks ready if lunch/ dinner is not yet complete. - pack snacks for road trips. . Anyone else out there want to join PHYT?. . And from us yoga teachers... sorry what I said when I was hangry!
Me in search for every little bit of sunshine. . Did you know that most of us in the UK lack the crucial Vitamin D. That means we need to genuinely go looking for sunshine. . I mean if you’ve ever needed a reason to go on holiday or lounge in the sun... you’re welcome! . So here’s your friendly Sunday morning reminder to get some sunshine, fresh air and drink plenty of water.

Happy Monday all!. . Music: Follow the Sun by Xavier Rudd
I remember that night... I remember our last conversation. It was on the dance floor with blaring music around us. You hugged me and whispered into my ear... “Do you remember what you said to us a few days ago? Do you remember feeling anxious and apologising for yourself? NEVER do that! You need to know how amazing you are and how much we love you. You’re an amazing person and don’t forget ‘you do you’.” . Those words ripped my heart open. I burst out crying. It was the first time anyone had called me out on my anxiety... the first time someone had told me it’s not true. Those words still ring in my ear even though it was exactly two years ago. . You were an angel to me. I am so grateful we met and my heart goes to all your friends and family. . . Two years ago I finished my teacher training and I’ve written a blog on how it’s been. Link in bio.
New month.... new focus. . This year in yoga classes I’ve been setting monthly themes... It’s been a fun challenge and so far we’ve worked on creating space around the heart (backbending), letting go and opening up (hips). . So this month I let my yogi’s pick the theme... and they picked core! . I absolutely can’t wait! Core work used to be my least favourite but now I love it. It’s important for stabilising that niggly back pain and bringing in that internal fire that gets your blood and energy pumping around. . So if you’ve woken up this morning looking for something to do... come join me as I teach 4 back-to-back classes @totalchiyoga . . 8.15-9.30: Yin&Yang. 10.40-11.25: Dynamic Warm Express. 11.30-12.30: Warm Vinyasa. 12.35-13.35: Vinyasa Flow. .
Creative flow. . This month I get to celebrate being married for 5 years. It’s a celebration of the incredible man that’s encouraged me to tap back into my creativity... to do things that make my soul sing... to be truly me. . And to him I’m forever grateful. . So I reward him with an evening of painting... (ok the gift may have been more for me) BUT he loved it too. Something so soothing about mixing, blending and painting. . Here’s to April 👩🎨
