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!

Challenge: To create for 5 minutes, and share it before overthinking it.
Here’s what came out of my insides today!
- Join me sometime? Make something! Write or draw or jot or sing or collage? And tag me somewhere in the comments / on your social!
An inspiring study 🌷
Joys of spring, creative play, Black love, what failure teaches us and Brown girlhood.
Join me for the stuff that has floated my boat lately 💜
So much of this world is fixated on a result. A statistic. A number. A ranking.
What does that tell us really?
What are we measuring this against?
Reflections on being a solopreneur for the past 9 years. It’s been hard. And often a path that had me questioning, “…should i give up?!”
But something drives me, like Others, to keep going, despite the challenges.
And there’s lots of us out here, doing our best in this crazy world to make best of it the way we can.
And hopefully align with something that pings our pants on the journey.
Here’s my motivation. Let’s talk about yours! x
PS this blog might be a good accompanyment to my latest podcast episode 32!
What a woman! Some joy + appreciation for one of my favourite writers.
Darlings! i wanted to share a useful tool that i’ve been using to help clear up my Twitter account! Which might be helpful if you, like me, live lots of lives and over the years have perhaps ended up following accounts that no longer “spark joy” (Gosh, that word is overused these days huh? ) for you anymore. And if you have felt obliged to follow someone out of guilt/work stuff/political relations etc.
Little Richard is how i’m trying to be! This is one of my fave clips of him “holy makadandee!” (and favourite outfits too, obviously! Dazzling peach garms forever darling 🍑✨!)
“What i know is that desire is a sense of life, inspiration is the essence of creating. Creation.”
Agnès Varda reflects on how three ideas central to the life of an artist - inspiration, creation, and sharing - have shaped her career over seven decades of filmmaking.
Because it’s our queen’s anniversary and i am a lamb 4 lyfe, i will use any excuse to celebrate the elusive chanteuse. Hark! A visionboard! And a playlist! A refuge for fellow Lambs! 🐑✨
