What is Ayurveda ?


3 Comments

First things first, I am no expert on Ayurveda but I am becoming more and more fascinated with it. After studying it in India as part of my yoga teacher training,  I realised the power it could have and I wanted to share that with you.

Spring Playlist 2016


1 Comment

Music is a massive part of my life. A lot of my friends are in bands, my boyfriend is a musician and one of my favourite things to do is to go watch live music.

As a dancer, music is a massive influence in my creative work and if you know me personally you will know I constantly have music playing… whether that’s while doing a training session, teaching yoga or just getting ready in the morning.

Probably because of those reasons my friends are always asking me for my recommendations on new music.

Hence I thought I would put together some songs that I am really into at the moment.

Not really any correlation to spring, just that it is here and that makes me very happy.

Five easy yoga asanas


3 Comments

Yoga can have huge benefits for the body and the mind. It is so accessible and I truly believe everyone should do some form of yoga.

I wanted to share five of my favourite yoga asanas (postures) to practice.

These are my go to postures if I have a limited amount of time but still want to feel connected and strong in my physical body.

These are in essence, easy postures, however they can take years to master, and I will definitely be practising these for decades to come. Nonetheless, if you did practice these asanas everyday you would notice a difference fairly quickly in your flexibility and your strength.

Yoga is a personal practice, so the length you should hold these postures for can vary. Your timing will depend on how you feel in that moment,and what you feel your body needs on that day. For example you might feel tired and need awakening, or you might need to relax the mind and body before bed. As a general rule five deep breaths (in and out) in each posture should help you to connect and find your inner strength.

One: Uttanasna – Forward fold.

Here are a few snapshots from my recent trip to India.

I am new to photography but have always enjoyed trying to capture the true nature of the place I am visiting.

I hope to give a real insight into a few different aspects of local Goan life.
