Hiya! So happy you're here! This is a full systematic adventure prepping our bods and minds in the best ways we can for backbends! Hate backbends? No worry babes! I hope there's still something here for you. We'll open up the shoulders and chest, strengthen the back body including hamstrings and shoulders, create space in the hips as well as explore "core" in a more “wholesome” way (don't expect boring crunches!)
The goal isn't to "backbend" tbh, but rather, to explore how we can support ourselves in ways that have integrity, being “integrated”, as well as practicing being supported. Effort and surrender if you want a short and snazzy catchphrase.
You will need:
*Some kind of makeshift prop for shoulder opening like a yoga block, a record or something else (get creative!). You might want to have a pillow handy too if you don't have a block for some later core support funtimes! Yes!
*An imaginary platter of sausages, halloumi and grapefruit….it will hopefully make sense in the practice!
*A sense of wonder and humour. Because a backbend practice demands it. I lie, you don't have to do anything but what you feel, babes.
Less tension, more ease, and effort in the places that matter. You HAVE this.
Take care of you, always, and let me know how you go!
We are moving through an intense time energetically. It’s officially eclipse season and we’re approaching summer’s full bloom. So what kind of soup does that make?
Here’s a bumper blog post digging deeper into ways we can find balance during the summertime including an analysis of current (and future!) cosmic energies, the impact of the planets and our environment, Ayurveda resources and heaps of creative self care tips for you to support you to feel better.
Something for the weekend? Inspo to wet your whistle!
A deep delve into the concept of copycats, the bigger picture, and more personal learning moments. Plus shady GIFs. Obviously.
Feel free, as i do, to get out ALL the tools to do this. Glitter. Crayons. The lot.
Or keep it simple and write it on the back of the gas bill envelope with a “borrowed” ikea pencil, as i have also been prone to do in my time.
Scrolling past all those luscious IG holiday images? To those of you who may feel stuck, a little resentful and unable to contain your eyerolls at people who have no idea what it’s like to live in the real world with real circumstances to deal with, i’ve got you.
In celebration of the solstice and the half way point of 2018 and the summer solstice up here in the north, i’m sharing some intimate moments and processes that help me get clearer in the hope they can help you too!
Here's an update from me about trust and some links i've been collecting for your insides this week! Hope it’s useful!
Are you a banana? I´m a banana! Yes! Let´s be bananas together!
This practice is for my friends who struggle a little with balance, or who want to take balance to a different dimension. A bit like the Prodigy. But less 90s rave, more chill. Sound good?
A journey of different styles and tastes in yoga, movement,
meditation, breathwork and creativity.
We’ll move, be still, create space and get free.
I’m into feelings. If something is off, i can’t go with it. People, projects, places. Know what i mean?
So. This week’s being offered a remembering of my truth.
The reason for doing what i do. And suggestions of how you can create space and freedom around a funk.
