Yoga Summer Series
In the last few days alone, Gatwick airport air traffic control computers went down, the internet was out in our entire district for the day, numerous apps and platforms with glitches or completely down across the world (the last time happened on the last Mercury Retrograde in March) and is the sat nav issue resolved yet? I mean...the energy is quite something! Have you observed anything?
Lenny Kravitz sure has some good taste! Since watching (and equally salivating) over this home - for clarity i mean the farm itself dah-ling, i can’t stop thinking about it and referring people to it. I’m even referencing this eye bath of deluxe refreshment in my latest podcast episode. So dedicating a whole post to it right here on the blog. And we can all enjoy. In whatever way we like.
What do you think - should we take a trip?!
I feel like i’ve been excitedly waiting to see this movie for an age!
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.
You know how it goes, sometimes this world can feel like a cesspit of doom, and you want to seek out some light. Or at least, the joy amidst the darkness… So here’s my pick of 3 things to watch this weekend/whenever you have some time. Hope they give you some ease and sweetness. And feel welcome to share yours too!
Is there a record you love that evokes freedom to you?
Perhaps an album that represents a time in your life when you felt your potential so clearly? Or nostalgia as you were exploring new territories?
I’d love to know!

I always said i’d wait for my first Tarot deck to find me. But not for want of looking! I have been searching for a deck that is inclusive and diverse and accessible for years! And i’m excited to share Neo Tarot with you!
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. 💜
Afua Hirsch, Keanu (+ puppes), what therapy is like for queer people of colour, Timbaland + Pharrell gassing each other up, encouragement to go for your dreams, words on womxn’s bodies, Stormzy on: confidence, a vibey playlist, a film quiz, and the most unsafe looking sh✨t i’ve ever seen!
So much to say here...! 🤭

🙅🏽♀️“is there someone under that? hahaha”

We’re only having one Brighton retreat this year…
Documentaries have the ability to drop us into someone else's story and give us a new perspective on the world. I've collected the favourite documentaries that have inspired me.

Challenge: To create for 5 minutes, and share it before overthinking it.
Here’s what came out of my insides today!

So much of this world is fixated on a result. A statistic. A number. A ranking.
What does that tell us really?
What are we measuring this against?
