I recently attended a course about patience, through Buddhist teachings we were exploring anger. I don't consider myself an angry person, I don't get cross with people or argue, but I love a day course and feel like I can always be a little more patient!

First we need t...

I’ve been practicing yoga for 28 years, that’s about 10,220 days that yoga has been a part of my life. Why am I telling you this? It’s my birthday this month which always triggers a bit of reflection…

In a time when so much of our life is documented in social media, a journal is a really honest way to keep a record. What gets published online isn't the real life stuff though is it? If it was there would be way more pictures of me eating my evening meal at 4pm standi...

Do you meditate? What’s meant to happen, and how do you do it? -These are three questions I’m asked a lot.

When I tell people I have a daily yoga practice, the typical response is 'oh you're good aren't you?'

'Good' has nothing to do with it. I'm an addict, I love to get Yoga Stoned, and in this post, I'll explain why.

During a typical weekday, most of us sit in a chair, head...

We all start a yoga practice for different reasons; to reduce back pain, help manage stress or maybe it’s to get Madonna’s arms! Whatever that original intention, most of us will recognise it was a physical benefit we were seeking. Which makes sense, as it’s a physical...

When I first started to practice, I never used yoga props. I didn’t want to take a block or strap, as that screams BEGINNER! I will grab hold of my toes in Supta Padangustasana, I don’t need a strap! And then I realise I'm not alone on my mat... Oh hello ego, old frien...
