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.

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!)

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.
Self care is not selfish.
