Yoga classes are great!

As much as I want to champion everyone developing the confidence to start practicing Yoga at home, the other day, I was reminded of how important and beneficial actually going to a class can be.   I was back at my usual, favourite class over in Ashford, and we were doing the usual mixture of evil/fun joint activation and isolation, strength building and mobility.  As I was being led through these sequences, which challenged the brain and the body, I realised […]

Why Yoga?

​A while ago I got the most amazing feedback from a student at the end of class.  It completely overwhelmed me.  She said how much she appreciated the time that must be put into each class.

Stressed Out?

Twilight Retreat Chocolate Brownies

I am not a natural in the kitchen, especially when it comes to baking.  It requires too much precision and planning, when I’m more into improvisation.  However, I needed a good snack to help us refuel after my monthly Twilight Retreat, an afternoon of Yoga and relaxation and I finally found the perfect recipe for me.  It is super easy and tastes amazing, even when I am in charge of the cooking! Instead of having to trawl through my Facebook page to find the recipe I decided […]
