Books About Yoga!

Whenever I read about yoga I feel as though I’m combining my two favourite things. However, there are so many books about yoga, mindfulness and spirituality that getting started can be overwhelming. I am a trainee yoga teacher and with so much to learn about anatomy as well as postures, pranayama and meditation, I wanted…

Thankfulness and Ambition: How the two can be connected.

Over the last few weeks I haven’t been practicing yoga. I had been in a really good routine of practising for fifteen minutes before bed and meditating for ten minutes twice a day. Starting a new job and now having an arthritis flair up (thanks British weather), it has all fallen away. But not completely….

OOTD and the perfect casual outfit to give you confidence

At this time of year dressing smartly can feel like a bit of a challenge. Getting the smart-casual balance that is normally solved with jeans a nice top in summer isn’t quite so easily achieved.
