Schedule, Events & Retreats
I literally can’t wait to wake up to this ladies incredible food spread! @kekelovescakes knows how to put on a spread. . It’s so important for food to be colourful, fresh and locally sourced. AND Kerran makes sure her food is something you’ll remember. . If you want to try it then don’t miss out on the summer retreat (21-23 June) and even if not then follow her account and order yourself one of her cakes! You won’t regret it ☺️
Show your worries to someone else... talk about it... watch them slowly get smaller. . This may be a kids book but it’s the best book I’ve read about anxiety and worries. A book I wish I had read when I was younger... or even 5 years ago. . The book is called “Huge bag of worries” and is by Virginia Ironside. . I actually stumbled across the book in a charity shop!
Rooting down and trying to find some grounding... . Today’s super full moon feels like it’s come at the perfect time... to rock, shake and release everything from 2019 already and start fresh. . “The tiny seed knew that in order to grow, it needed to be dropped in dirt, covered in darkness, struggle to reach the light.” ~ Sandra King. . So here’s your reminder today that you can always start again, Start fresh and wipe the slate clean. . Happy Moon Day
What’s your normal morning routine? . This year I’ve noticed I consciously don’t pick up the paper or read the news. It got to a point where each day was started with a huge information overload and mostly of the negative kind. Worries that would weigh and sit on my mind for hours... I would be upset about the headlines and even the news which they didn’t seem worthy of front page. I would find myself raging at politicians or leaders. I realised I needed to step back. . But now I feel guilty, guilty that I may not be aware of everything as I happens... Guilty that it may look like I don’t care. . I’ve also consciously stepped away from Instagram scrolling in the morning and set a timer on the app too which will tell me when I’ve reached my limit. . Instead I’m listening to educational podcasts, meditating or reading. . How do you spend your mornings? And what do you think about the papers and morning news?
Say thanks to those who lift you higher... carry you... support you. . Especially those who are willing to triple plank to support you physically and emotionally through all the laughs. . Choose this Monday morning to send a note of love or thanks to those people in your life 💕
What are weekends for if not yoga with a bestie, a plate full of brownies and ab workout in the form of laughter. . Looking forward to weekend retreating to the countryside with this beauty 21-23 June in North Somerset. . I’ll be the one laughing and rolling on the grass calling it yoga 🙋🏽. . You don’t want to miss out! Link in bio.
Doing an Instagram take over this week at my lovely local yoga studio @theyogastudiosbushey . This week I’ll be sharing my favourite yoga facts, busting all the myths and generally sharing a bit of myself with you. . If anything you can watch me get back into this #instagame 🤷♀️
2 years ago today the universe told me its time to jump... so I leaped... leaped into the unknown. . I remember crying the two nights before telling my husband I didn’t want to go anymore. I remember the day of the flight- I was so nervous I couldn’t eat or sleep. I remember arriving in India by myself in the dead of night and heading to my accommodation feeling genuinely scared. I remember the first 2 hour yoga practise which left me curled in a ball crying on my mat because I felt too weak to continue. . But I also remember the two beautiful girls sat next to me... I remember how they hugged and comforted me as if they had known me my whole life. I remember all the laughter we shared. I remember feeling like a family... sharing meals, movie nights and laundry trips. I remember how much they taught me to love and respect myself. . I remember each day of my yoga teacher training. I describe it as the best AND worst thing I’ve ever done. It physically and emotionally broke me in order to make me stronger. . Today my heart is full with gratitude for everything I’ve learnt. Every class I’ve taught and every person I’ve met through this journey. But most importantly my heart is full of gratitude for these two incredible girls... the ones that taught me it’s ok to jump and trust that I will fly.
What does it mean to be a woman? . Soft but strong. Calm but assertive. Vulnerable but Fierce. Passionate but accommodating. Gentle but harsh. . Women can be anything... labels are attached to everything but I’m here to instead talk about tapping into the feminine energy more! . My Instagram has been full of all of these #IWD posts showing incredible women who have become CEO’s or top of their fields... yes it’s amazing! But I think there’s still more things... . Let’s talk about periods! Over half the population menstruate and we still hide it like it’s a big secret... if I had the courage to talk about it sooner I may have found out about endometriosis sooner. . Let’s show our emotions and use vulnerability as our strength. I was always ashamed of my anxiety and fears and never spoke about them until I met a gorgeous soul at work who made it perfectly normal. . Let’s lift each other instead of compare... . Women’s day this year is about COMMUNITY. This community we have here... full of so many incredible souls. Take time to honour them, hold space, send love and gratitude. There’s so many women in my life who have shown me what it truly means to be a woman and I’m so damn grateful for them. . Today I thank and love you all! Knowing we will continue to support, love and talk... break through barriers and taboos!
