I want to be - a tree!
...inspo for this vid:
Let me start off by saying, i don´t believe in “levels” of yoga. Everybody can “do” yoga. Secondly, i really really don´t like to tell people what to do. So this is a mini yoga posture workshop with a difference. Beginner or seasoned.
Now that´s out the way, let´s get into the nitty gritty of deconstructing tree pose! Yeah!
Stand on your own two feet. Then just one!
Play with balance mindfully, explore how it´s always shifting and hopefully embrace that as we ground down into our support in order to rise up into a magnificent tree!
There´s suggestions for you to play with throughout the practice, as well as offerings in how to spice up or mellow out your tree, depending on your preference.
You will need: a floor and possibly a wall or chair if balance is feeling a bit challenging for you today!
Got lots on your plate or on your mind? Trust it will have an effect on your balance (so this is a great practice for you!) Try to let it be what it is, there´s no pressure to find this placid still place, or for it to look like the perfect image you might have in your head.
Wobbles are part of the process.
You have this anyway!
Love always, and let me know how you go.

Sometimes, pyjamas and blankets are the best way forward.
Get some SPRING in your step! (lolz, sos!) Let's get lifted! And a bit bananas!
I struggled so much with the weather when living in Norway. It owned me on every level. Thankfully some amazing Norwegians taught me some of the best lessons in how to survive winter. Here´s my top 10 tips!
Feeling low and stuck in a hole? Bummer! Winter blues are more common than we think. So many of us experience overwhelming feelings during this time, or the well observed fatigue and illness that go hand in hand with excess and Xmas shenanigans. Here are some offerings for ways to feel better (especially if you can't fly south for the winter!)
In no way do I consider myself a doctor. But i've experienced a hell of a lot of insomnia in my lifetime. I know i'm not alone, and am frequently asked about ways to manage it, especially at this time of year, so I thought I would put together some suggestions of ways to banish that beast.
Hate backbends? No worry babes!
Heavens of healing sweetness!
Here’s some yoga videos i made for the summertime! You´ll find a selection of styles and themes, like yoga for travel, yoga for when it´s hot outside or for when you simply need to cool it, an energising summer morning practice, plus a build to a "peak" mermaid pose.
Hope there´s something here for everyone!
This is a cooling yoga flow as part of the summer series. In the summer, the idea of flow might feel a little off-putting when it´s so warm outside, but we´re going to tame the spicy meatballs and make things more chill. Let's keep things fluid and soften the hard edges.
This month i'm sharing nuggets from the internet that inspire healing. I hope that this collection offers inspo for introspection, more self care, more self love and space for you to take what you need.
