For those who may have seen on my yoga instagram account, I graduated from my yoga teacher training with YogaLondon last weekend.

Today was our last day of training – it was surreal to say the least. Holly asked us to sum up in one word – the journey or experience that we have come on and I was stumped. The first word that came to my mind was “life changing” followed by “transformative” followed by “incredible”.…

Yoga Journal # 70: Using the bathroom

Class with Rahoul – was really good – strong and powerful. Lectures on one-to-one and finding the correct attitude etc. Some things I guess I hadn’t really thought about – like using the bathroom of a one-to-one client or about not commenting on their house (encourages an attachment to material things). Did a teaching prac…

Pregnant Yogi! It was Such fun! Grew SO attached to the little bump they made us put into our tops! (Jumpers!). It really is amazing how much more the movement is restricted – and that is without the actual weight to go with it! Went through a Q & A after – was SO interesting…
