Intro to Yoga: Downward-facing dog


No Comments

The final part of my three part series: INTRO TO YOGA. (check out part one and two here if you haven’t already!)

There are a few things I wish that I had been taught when I first started practicing yoga. Hence I made this series as I want to do everything I can to make it a little bit easier for you guys as beginners.

For me personally I had been practicing for a good few years before a teacher finally told me the true alignment I should be in for Downward-facing dog. Then when this happened my yoga practice completely transformed!

So it may seem silly to do a whole post on just one posture. However I really believe the down dog is the basis for everything! It can teach you so much about alignment and I wish I had known how to do the posture correctly when I first started practicing.

So here it is Adho Mukha Svanasana or “Downward facing dog”…

Travel: BUDAPEST


No Comments

My big sister just turned 26. For her birthday I bought her flights to go to Budapest. The summer had just come to an end in London and it seemed like the perfect time to go explore and find a bit of sun before winter truly came.

I love Budapest. The backdrop of the Buda hills, the dramatic river Danube running through the city and the beautiful architecture make it incredibly pretty. The chain bridges give the city a romantic vibe and the Jewish district brings rich history into the streets. It was my second time to the city and all the love I had felt the first time I visited came flooding back. Not to mention Budapest is also super fun, filled with ruin bars, more than 100 thermal baths and lots of sights to see, plus it is really cheap! What is not to love…

Here are some photographs of our weekend in Budapest. At the end you will find a list of the places I would recommend (bars, baths, sights etc.) if you are thinking about taking a trip to this amazing city.

Travel: BERLIN


No Comments

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…

Nordic Snapshots


No Comments

Norway and I have a kind of love hate relationship. I am currently and firmly in the love stage.

Its beautiful nature, wooden cabins and outdoor lifestyle get me every time I visit.

The ‘scandiness’ of Oslo, the fresh air in the mountains and the fact that you feel one million miles away from the busyness of London makes me beyond happy.

Another major reason why I love Norway is that it is my boyfriends homeland. This makes it feel like my second home and when I arrive in Norway I feel at peace.

Last week I took a trip to Oslo and his cabinto visit my him and enjoy this wonderful land full of Nordic culture.

Here are some photographs from my time there.

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.

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.
