Yoga for grief and sadness
Hey you. I appreciate that you're here.
This is a practice to support you if you are navigating grief or sadness. If you're going through something right now, i hope that you can find some room to process in the way you need to, and i'm here to remind you there´s no right or wrong way to do it, so trust that you're not alone, and let´s do this together.
We'll explore and try to open up some space with some gentle movement, so that we can be more receptive and present and able to support ourselves as we move forward through this journey.
We'll start with a short mindful meditation using some massage techniques, sense awareness and breathwork (thanks to Elena Brower), then we'll incorporate some movement into the practice.
Hopefully we can welcome in some space for state-shifting but to also honour wherever you are at, trusting in the process and nurturing yourself along the way.
You will need: a cushion or blanket to support yourself when you're seated.
Please take rests if that feels good to do right now. Trust your body.
Thank you for taking this time.

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.
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.
Sometimes we just need an injection of something to help us on our way. Cause life can get tricky sometimes. We might be stuck in a situation. A limiting belief. An unhelpful way of being. And need a little reboot. So, here’s an offering of a couple of things to help support you in shifting your state. To one that is thriving not just surviving. 💜
Getting back into your body can be super helpful, if it’s possible for you to do so. Here are some ideas!
Cut. down. the. noise.
Here’s a tip.
today i'm listening to some of my own advice for when the world (irl+ online) feels too much...
so sharing some resources if you too are wading through grief and sadness. 💜
take care of you and your loved ones
The breath is oh so powerful and has such a huge impact on the way we feel. It can transform a very anxious situation to something more calming (ever been annoyed by someone who tells you to "just breathe" when you´re stressed out? There´s good reason for it!)
