This blog space is moving home, lovely readers. This humble WordPress space has been the start of throwing these words around (which has been wildly more therapeutic than I first expected) and it’s been awesome to generally share my musings with you all. So thanks for tuning in over the past three years (crap, that … More We’re moving!
Mats get gross, you guys. We most likely end up sweating on them and bringing all the hand-related germiness to the party, but if you’re anything like me (especially in the summer) you’ll be bringing all the bare-feet, muddy love to the mat, too. So we end up with some serious ick-factors involved in our … More The best *ever* yoga mat cleaner
Ok, we haven’t started watching the latest GoT. Mainly because we definitely can’t watch one episode at once. We’re binge kinda people, y’know? So no spoilers if you don’t mind. Anyway, my reference to this ace telly show isn’t for the lovely beards or the many scenes that make you wish you didn’t invite your … More Winter is coming
Ok, I know you’ve been waiting for this for ages, and here it is: your ultimate (not really) yoga glossary of terms. You’re welcome. Child’s pose – wait, I’m supposed to get my hips to my heels? A quick way to pins and needles. Sometimes comes with the satisfaction of leaving a little forehead-shaped sweat … More 10 Essential Yoga Terms
Ok, I’m the poorest I’ve ever been as an adult. There. I said it. Alongside being poor though, I’m probably the happiest I’ve ever been. And I’m gonna share with you guys the road I’ve taken to get to being poor and happy, cause it’s not always been that way. Aside from the help I … More The road to (happy) ruin
As a van dweller, life is a bit different to how it was when we were in a flat. It’s awesome in loads of ways: we don’t pay council tax or water rates; we save thousands on rent; and we have the freedom of being where we want or need to be. It’s pretty cool. … More Van people are people too
So, I quit my ‘proper’ job last week to be a full time yoga teacher. A momentous time, I’m sure you’ll agree. Mostly, I think I’m excited to leave behind the absolute joke that comes when we put miserable people in a room together and call them the Human Resources department. And also the politics … More Can anyone provide free cake?
Happy Tuesday, you guys. My topic today, and something I write for, something I yoga for, and something that’s only just become something I’m consciously aware of, is my natural state of mind. I guess, what I mean is, my propensity for pessimism, stress, anxieties. I’m not vegan, and this is something the yoga world struggles … More How’re you doing?
So, if you haven’t heard along the grapevine (or on this little space in the web) I live full-time in a converted van. And, don’t you find with anything you end up doing, especially the big stuff, that expectations are way different to reality? Van life (or, #vanlife as the hipsters would have you say) … More Van Lessons, May 2017
I’m a yoga teacher. You guys probably know this about me by now. I teach others to ‘yoga’. But, what, really, does this mean? For non-yogis or those on the fence, there’s the image of a class full of harem-pant clad twenty-somethings who chant and talk about their third eye and how much kombucha they’ve … More The yoga of the revolution
