Yoga for anxiety + stress
Struggling with unproductive anxious energy?
This sequence is designed to help support you get out of your head and into your body.
Sometimes when we feel some type of way, we might attach a meaning to our feelings. But feelings are always shifting and changing, so we give space to honour them but also remind ourselves “you are not your thoughts, nor are you defined by them”.
We approach the practice with openness and curiosity and fascination and appreciation for our bodies and minds as we focus on diffusing stress. We use our attention to help bring us back to our centre and anchor to the support that´s all around us.
We start with a meditation, adding some breathwork then ease into some movement- expect a slow flow (which can be challenging in its own way) using balances, twists and slooow transitions. It´s a full body experience but we are trying to move the energy that´s circulating around our heads downwards. Roots my friends!
You will need: Yourself and possibly a book/block/blanket if you like to use props but you don´t have to!
Get into being and exploring!
Really hope this helps you feel better.
As always, 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 >

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.
