Summer series // Cooling Flow | Yoga With Dionne // Mindful movement for spine
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.
We start with some cooling breathwork to calm things down, then we give our hands, wrists and shoulders some love and free up some space (ideal if you´ve been playing Hay Day for long periods of time!). We´ll then move through cat, cow and child's pose, building to a more dynamic flow but still anchored in lots of mindful mellow vibes.
We will free up the spine offering movement through all planes of movement and play with balance and cooling postures and take that into some backbends, followed by a restorative chillout using wall space.
As always, listen to your body and rest as much as you need at any time. Go with the flow.
You will need: some wall space to end your practice or sub with a chair or sofa.
Let me know how you go!

Need a pep up? Here’s some festive reads +resources! ❤️❄️
It’s so clear in my many years wandering on this planet that there is a massive tendency to pack in so much around this time of year. Be it the panic so many feel to fill the year and tick off stuff before it “ends”, or the pressure to be in the seasonal spirit of joy and glad tidings.
During this time you might still have stuff to do. Things to fix up.
But you’re reluctant to go at the same pace or rhythm of others, especially when you’re in a different space. And perhaps also exhausted from the year!
So how can we manage our time and energy during the busy season?
I’m here to offer some tips that i hope will help you prioritise and get the important stuff done. Cause amidst the pressure and distraction, you still get to choose what to participate in.
Take your rest seriously this time of year my friends and be well.
Hope you enjoy.
Winter fatigue is real my friends.
I hope that this offerings might inspire you to feel better during the dark times, and perhaps even encourage you to gravitate towards the stuff that gives you energy during the darker season.
Feel better and let's make the most of the season we are in and embrace it together! ❤️
This one goes out to my Homies in the northern hemisphere!

Today, we have a seasonal check in for autumn! Yes! It’s a moment to ponder and puree some ideas about getting intentional with what you want to bring in this season. Very post equinoxxy. Bring a pad and pen if you feel like it. Or your mobile notes app. Or just and most importantly, yourself!
Let’s have a chat about “wellness” + “self care” shall we?
The transcript to podcast episode 18. I wanted to share a monster post with you talking about the significance of the autumn equinox and offer some Self Care Tips and ideas for Rituals to help you transition and find balance.
Most of you know Eartha Kitt is one of my beloved muses. She inspires me continuously, and whenever i need to press the reset button, or remind myself of my mission on the planet, i take a time out to immerse myself in clips, gifs and words from her (amongst others). A filling up of one's cup, if you will. And i thought that as she offers me so much inspiration, that she might do the same for you too! So here's a selection of cutlets to enjoy.
