Yoga & Mindfulness

July 2, 2020

Translating the jargon on a yoga studio timetable or deciphering the style of yoga you are in the mood to practise when choosing a video on YouTube can be an overwhelming task, especially if you are relatively new to yoga.  As the popularity of yoga has grown so has the list of types and styles of yoga.  Therefore, I thought it would be useful to define some of the most popular styles of yoga including the types of yoga I teac...

If you practise yoga regularly, I am sure that you have experienced some sort of body scan led by a teacher during Savasana at the end of a yoga class.  Well, in its essence, this is a form of Yoga Nidra.  Yoga Nidra literally means 'yogic sleep' and is a form of guided meditation that leads you into the healing and deeply restful state between waking and sleeping.  It is an extremely accessible form of meditation; there is no...

I have spent the last month absorbing the abundance of information that was shared as part of the Honor (Don't Appropriate) Yoga Summit held by Susanna Barkataki. Barkataki is a yoga teacher, inclusivity promoter and yoga culture advocate. She comes from an Indian and British background and is based in the United States, working to promote inclusion and diversity in the wellness and yoga community. The Honor Yoga Summit w...

I love YouTube. I started watching it when it first came out in 2005. I was a teenager and I would spend my evenings on MSN and watching music videos and live performances on YouTube. It was a labyrinth of video clips of my favourite artists, interviews that were lost in the vault and an opportunity to fully marinate in my idols. Since then I have gone through phases of watching. At university, I enjoyed the celebrity themed m...

Picture the soft flow of candles and low lighting, the warmth of a yoga studio, the comfort of cushions and bolsters, the cosiness of blankets and eye pillows, perhaps the subtle scent of essential oils diffusing into the surrounding air and the low hum of ambient music. Sounds like a blissful image, right? Couple the atmosphere with some passive poses held for 5-10 minutes at a time, with little to no effort for the body. A r...

With what I am about to say, you might be surprised to learn that this isn't a sponsored post for Audible, however, I can safely say that my Audible subscription has been my most valued purchase and investment for the entirety of 2018. As an avid reader who has dabbled in ebooks but ultimately returned to the feeling and smell (and the safe spillages) of physical books, I was quite wary of venturing into the world of audio boo...

Happy New Year to everyone! I hope you are welcoming 2018 with open arms, hearts and minds. It really feels like this year is going to be an incredible year and if seeing Oprah on the Golden Globes is anything to go by then it is going to be the year of female empowerment! Anyway, I am sure you have read countless articles and headlines across the internet talking about the time between Christmas and New Year and January onwar...

I am back! And I am sorry for my absence from the blog and my somewhat absence from social media (especially Instagram stories where I bore people with my daily goings on). For those of you who don't know, at the start of September I left my full time job to become self-employed providing freelance marketing services as well as to pursue my dream of becoming a yoga teacher. I have wanted to become a yoga teacher for four years...

It is the end of another bank holiday and I am sure you, and everyone else celebrating the long weekend, have consumed a little bit too much alcohol and the prospect of returning to work on Tuesday seems to call for another three days of sleep.  The hope of a wholesome weekend enjoying the fresh air while sipping on some gorgeous elderflower cordial concoctions may have swiftly been replaced by several refreshing Sauvignons af...
