Studio One – Islington’s new yoga studio


No Comments

Studio One is a brand new studio opening in the heart of Islington.

The lovely sisters Ali and Sarah had a dream to make a healthy lifestyle accessible and convenient. Not only that, they wanted to create a community, a place where support is given and the vibe is friendly. A place where you feel inspired to be your best self, in what ever form that may be.

And so with an awesome team and months of hard work Studio One was born…

Yoga for Children


No Comments

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…

Benefits of Yoga for Dancers

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…

My current fitness routine


No Comments

Being active and working out comes pretty easy to me, this may sound strange to some people out there, but honestly I just love moving my body and always have done. Okay, so obviously I do have my off days where I just want to sit and eat a whole pack of oreos but they are pretty rare.

From the age of four I was attending my local baby ballet, at primary school I had joined every athletic club going, and at home my sister and I would create obstacle courses around our garden pretty much every weekend.

There is something about being physical in whatever context, that has always made me feel good. Times have slightly changed and now my fitness routine is more organized; even though I wish my sister and I could still run around our garden to get fit and healthy bodies.

Cornish Cliff Run


No Comments

Everyone has a happy place, where you go and everything seems to slow down. All of your thoughts, worries and self doubts no longer seem to matter and you walk around with the biggest smile on your face for no reason at all.

For me that is Cornwall, I love its rugged cliffs, surf, beaches and its old english quirks.

One of my favourite things to do in Cornwall is to take to the costal paths for runs and long hikes. I wanted to share one of my running spots with you guys…

 

My Cornish Cliff Run

Beginning and ending in the old fishing and mining village of Portreath and running a circular route of 4.43 miles (7.1 km). It is hilly and hard work but the views and scenery make this by far my favourite run in England.
