Summer Series // Let's be Mermaids!
Inspired by my love of the sea and the 1984 movie, Splash, let´s be mermaids!
Expect a practice that explores creating space in the hips, shoulders and spine, whilst integrating the idea of "core" which essentially is our centre. We´ll systematically open up and strengthen the body and head to our "peak" Mermaid pose, then ease things down into longer restorative holds with some soothing breathwork to absorb all of that work.
When it comes to working towards a particular goal, sometimes we can take unnecessary tension along for the ride, or get a little bit overwhelmed when trying to gobble it all up. So instead, we practice how to be efficient with our energy so we can be more balanced and integrated whilst appreciating where we are at at every step of the way. Appreciate yo-self babes!
Although we´re exploring a particular pose, especially a spicy meatball pose, try not to feel you need to force your way into anything, instead to go with the flow and enjoy the journey!
You will need (optional): a couple of books/cushions/yoga blocks and possibly a strap/belt/tie
As always, take care of you, listen to your body and take as many breaks as you need. Hope this feels good - let me know!

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!)
Trigger warning of sexual abuse.
To any Survivors, please exercise caution and self care.
No matter what expectations might be weighing heavy on you, or what demands are in need of your attention, perhaps this week you might entertain the idea of finding an anchor that helps you to centre? New yoga video, music and inspo inside >
Are you a banana? I´m a banana! Yes! Let´s be bananas together!
This practice is for my friends who struggle a little with balance, or who want to take balance to a different dimension. A bit like the Prodigy. But less 90s rave, more chill. Sound good?
Been a long day? If it's 8am or early evening, come and unwind with me!
This is my fave go-to de-stress and chill. I hope this gives you ample goodness and sweetness.
We are moving through an intense time energetically. It’s officially eclipse season and we’re approaching summer’s full bloom. So what kind of soup does that make?
Here’s a bumper blog post digging deeper into ways we can find balance during the summertime including an analysis of current (and future!) cosmic energies, the impact of the planets and our environment, Ayurveda resources and heaps of creative self care tips for you to support you to feel better.
I'm interested in what lies beneath the people pleasing.
What's our relationship like with ourselves?
Do we like ourselves and respect what we have to say?
Do we honour our voice and our perspective of the world?
Do we embrace our mission and our journey wholeheartedly?
Are we open to exploring and discovering and embracing all facets of ourselves?
It’s been a long road and i’m still working on it. Here's to learning to like and love ourselves in whatever ways we can.
