Tree Pose for Beginners!
I want to be - a tree!
...inspo for this vid:
Let me start off by saying, i don´t believe in “levels” of yoga. Everybody can “do” yoga. Secondly, i really really don´t like to tell people what to do. So this is a mini yoga posture workshop with a difference. Beginner or seasoned.
Now that´s out the way, let´s get into the nitty gritty of deconstructing tree pose! Yeah!
Stand on your own two feet. Then just one!
Play with balance mindfully, explore how it´s always shifting and hopefully embrace that as we ground down into our support in order to rise up into a magnificent tree!
There´s suggestions for you to play with throughout the practice, as well as offerings in how to spice up or mellow out your tree, depending on your preference.
You will need: a floor and possibly a wall or chair if balance is feeling a bit challenging for you today!
Got lots on your plate or on your mind? Trust it will have an effect on your balance (so this is a great practice for you!) Try to let it be what it is, there´s no pressure to find this placid still place, or for it to look like the perfect image you might have in your head.
Wobbles are part of the process.
You have this anyway!
Love always, and let me know how you go.

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!)
