Found on the 35th floor of 20 Fenchurch street (the walkie talkie building) the Sky Garden is the highest public garden in London. It is also one of my favourite places in the city…
Berlin is effortlessly cool and always delivers. Visiting the city for the second time a couple of weeks ago I was reminded of that amazing energy which runs through the cities bars, parks, clubs and cafes.
Taking a few days away from my London teaching schedule I met my boyfriend in Berlin for a few days of fun…
Rhubarb believe it or not is a vegetable, somewhere along the way it has just been treated like a fruit and I love it! I love its tartness, its britishness and for me it takes me instantly back to my childhood, when my granddad would make his homemade rhubarb crumble.
Rhubarb is a great add on for lots of dishes, it makes amazing deserts and one of my favourite things to make is a rhubarb Bakewell tart (YUMMY). However last week I went to a Native Highs Yoga and brunch event and we had the most delicious breakfast from Dust Granola. It was bircher, cacao granola and you guessed it a rhubarb compote!! It was so delicious and such a great breakfast combination that it totally inspired me to give it ago and make my own rhubarb bircher at home.
Taking full advantage of the fact that my mum has a garden full of rhubarb I came up with this ridiculously tasty and healthy bircher recipe.

Everyone can practice yoga, you are never too young or too old!
Research has shown that yoga can benefit children in various ways and if practiced can make them calmer, more focused and have better concentration. What parent or teacher doesn’t want that!?
If you are thinking this sounds like a great idea but don’t know where to begin, just be creative and go with the flow and children are bound to enjoy it!
To get them involved in yoga however it must be fun and exciting. Here are a few ideas for teaching children yoga…

May has been a wonderful month and I feel so grateful for all the opportunities I have been given. It has also been pretty busy so its nice to look back, take a moment and just remember the highlights. Reflecting back over the last 31 days there have been a few things which have stuck out as being particular favourites of mine.
One of my favourite experiences this month was having my boyfriend come and stay with me in London. Spending time with positive, inspirational and happy people is so important and Bendik is all of those things. I spent my first ever “Norway Day” with him and we had such a great day, something we will both remember for years to come!
Now on to my favourites…
Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body – Martha Graham
I am dancer and a yogi and I believe every dancer should practice yoga. Don’t get me wrong I think dancers are taking full advantage of the postural side of yoga. I just that think they are missing out on the benefits that the spiritual aspects of the practice have to offer. I believe that practicing meditation and pranayama alongside asana practice could hugely benefit professional dancers.
This is why…
I love cooking, I find it therapeutic and a lot of fun when experimenting with flavours. However on a week night when I am rushed for time I will always go for something quick. No one has time to make a cauliflower pizza base on a week night, right?
I want my dinner to be healthy and nourishing but the preparation to be minimal.
This colourful quinoa bowl is all those things and more!
