April Goals [have come and gone]

Is it too late to write about April Goals? Short answer: YES. I had this whole blog post idea to set some goals for last month and guess what? I got some sort of virus which knocked me out for two weeks, going on three! I hardly had any energy to do anything, which was … Continue reading April Goals [have come and gone]

100 days of yoga!

I recently passed my 100th day of yoga and, with that revelation, I've come to realise a few things about my mental health and body. I've written about this kind of thing before, but it's sometimes important to reassess and re-confirm positive affirmations! my body, my journey It's hard not to look at other people … Continue reading 100 days of yoga!

67 Days of Yoga and counting

You read that title correctly! I am 67 days into my daily yoga practices and, so far, it feels great. I guess that goes without saying? I have always been an on again, off again yoga practitioner. I love it but, like most things, it's easy to get distracted or feel too tired to move … Continue reading 67 Days of Yoga and counting

Yoga Wish List

True to my new year goals I've been doing yoga every day (mostly thanks to Yoga with Adriene's True Yoga 30 day plan). Go me, right? I'm actually bursting with energy at the moment and I'm pretty sure getting back into the swing of yoga is a big reason. Of course, you can do yoga … Continue reading Yoga Wish List

31 days of yoga wrap up!

January always brings a surge of yoga into my life as I tend to do whatever new year yoga workshop Adriene comes up with on her Youtube channel! This year was 31 days of Yoga Revolution and I loved it. However... being that I feel heavily off the yoga wagon AGAIN by the end of … Continue reading 31 days of yoga wrap up!

Yoga workshop with Adriene Mishler  

I'm writing this post 24 hours after the event and still I have what can only be described as a yoga high. Yesterday I took the train into Manchester after work to attend a live yoga session with Adriene of YouTube channel Yoga With Adriene. I'm pretty sure I've already blogged about her and so … Continue reading Yoga workshop with Adriene Mishler  

Falling off the wagon

I did it. I fell off the wagon. Although I haven't broken any promises to myself regarding Yoga I was doing so well and practising every day though January to March. I then got ill at the start of April and what with all the stress of moving I neglected my body. Let me tell you. I … Continue reading Falling off the wagon

Hit me with the Mantra, baby!

Have you ever been in a situation where you just thought to yourself 'I can get through this, in 24 hours this will be over'?  Pretty much every day I find myself thinking little phrases to help me through and it wasn't until this month that I realised I was using a convoluted form of … Continue reading Hit me with the Mantra, baby!

Yoga Bear

I'm a yoga bear, for sure. I've been haphazardly practising very basic yoga stretches and vinyasas for about the past five years or so. I am in no way 'good' at yoga but it makes me feel good so that's good enough for me. [how many more times can I say good today?] For the … Continue reading Yoga Bear

#Thisgirlcan

This Girl Can! It's a great slogan because anything that encourages people to exercise makes me smile. From an early age I always found it difficult to 'get into' fitness. I suffer from asthma and an overriding case of LAZE. Now I'm older I find laziness is a mental disability I'm able to get over. … Continue reading #Thisgirlcan
