Get Unstuck | Yoga With Dionne // Vinyasa flow
Life happens. We can get in our own way. Get ideas about who we think we are and what we can (and most often, can´t) do. Weighted by world events. Rightfully wanting to contribute and take action. And sometimes feel stuck and unsure. Mute in moments. Overwhelmed in others.
We are human.
And in these sticky times, the greatest intervention we can make, is to simply show up and remind ourselves that we are never stuck.
Even if we feel like we are.
So getting up, showing up, being present is so very radical.
Staying present, grounded and clear is how we maintain that (without burning out)
So this is for you my friends, who are continuing to push things forward, even though some days it can feel hard.
You have this.
We have this.
Let´s reconnect, keep things moving and continue to keep showing up.
You are never stuck.
Here´s a practice.
Feeling stuck and need to shift?
Whether you´re feeling some kind of way or just ready to remember who you are, this practice will help you reconnect to that power inside you - let´s call it “source” or “sauce” yeah? This will be a continuous movement practice where we tease out tension from sticky areas and find flow again.
Expect to charge up using your navel as your guide (3rd chakra vibes, the energetic centre of power, connecter of upper and lower physical body and booster of charge and pizzaz when you need a lift) and experiment with your centre of gravity through standing postures and arm balances. You´ll move the spine in all directions and rinse out any residue with standing, balancing and seated twists, and finish off with a soothing inversion flow.
Darlings! It’s Carnival this weekend and time for one of my favourite things: to nyam my way around the Caribbean!
What better time to share a video + recipe for one of my ultimate fave Caribbean dishes: Callaloo Soup!
There’s a sentimental connection to this dish, remembering friends afar who i went to school with back on the islands, and so i thought i’d make my own version (which happens to be vegan and gluten free but i don’t subscribe to any food label cause i believe in doing you and eating what the hell works for your body. More on that HERE and HERE if you want).
So, welcome to our tiny kitchen! Filmed on the hottest day of the year so far of course! Ketil is my sous chef and sound person! I am adding unhinged commentary as always. IGTV below and recipe card and deets are below! Oh and a playlist to cook and nyam and dance to on the right - si mi yah! 🍵
Let me know what you think!
fancy a gigantic “lately” scrapbook update + diary of my summertime moments? expect a behind the scenes gander at my inner landscape (not a euphemism), news updates, resources, personal photos, peach outfits + a playlist!
resilience as action.
hope as practice.
Slow jam Sunday. Even though it’s not raining, still a forever fave + we get the metaphor, right?
So back in 2016 i was going through a particularly tough time. not so hopeful to say the least. some are often surprised to hear that, in light of the work i was doing those years. but to anyone reading who is moving through dark days, i know it might seem naff for me to say, but i’ma say it anyway, i hope you can read this and believe things will get better. i believe in you, and i admire and cheer you on for showing up to meet this day. i know things can feel hopeless, perhaps dark and frightening, but you will get through this. i promise, you can and you will.
A side effect to the gathering of copious amounts of things i love, admire, respect and adore, is that i wonder if it’s too much. Replace “it’s” with “i’m”. Cause that’s at the root, right?
I wonder if i overwhelm with sharing. I- just- get- SO - enthusiastic about things.

is to free someone else.”
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?!
