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!

In the last few days alone, Gatwick airport air traffic control computers went down, the internet was out in our entire district for the day, numerous apps and platforms with glitches or completely down across the world (the last time happened on the last Mercury Retrograde in March) and is the sat nav issue resolved yet? I mean...the energy is quite something! Have you observed anything?
Lenny Kravitz sure has some good taste! Since watching (and equally salivating) over this home - for clarity i mean the farm itself dah-ling, i can’t stop thinking about it and referring people to it. I’m even referencing this eye bath of deluxe refreshment in my latest podcast episode. So dedicating a whole post to it right here on the blog. And we can all enjoy. In whatever way we like.
What do you think - should we take a trip?!
I feel like i’ve been excitedly waiting to see this movie for an age!
This one’s for you if you feel a little intimidated by “the yoga thing” or you’ve been away from your practice for a while or have never been to a yoga class before or you just want to be back into your body and get back to source.
You know how it goes, sometimes this world can feel like a cesspit of doom, and you want to seek out some light. Or at least, the joy amidst the darkness… So here’s my pick of 3 things to watch this weekend/whenever you have some time. Hope they give you some ease and sweetness. And feel welcome to share yours too!
Is there a record you love that evokes freedom to you?
Perhaps an album that represents a time in your life when you felt your potential so clearly? Or nostalgia as you were exploring new territories?
I’d love to know!
