I guess it’s been a long time coming: I’m closing down this blog. Yoga has taken over my life – or at least the part that was reserved for blog writing, blog reading and stalking people on twitter. I still write. Not here, but here.
“Among the things made by man, nothing is prettier than an English cottage garden, and they often teach lessons that ‘great’ gardeners should learn.” William Robinson, “The English Flower Garden,” London 1883 It’s official. I am old. I’ve got a crush on Monty Don! In a desperate attempt to turn the mud pit in our backyard […]
When you have a fantastic Swedish restaurant just down the road, when it’s -18 degrees and a thick layer of ice covers the roads, and when it is so dark that you feel someone has painted the sky with tar, you might find it hard to get all dolled up, put on some heels and venture into […]
We did it. After almost two years of planning, building and waiting, waiting, waiting, we finally moved into our new house a couple of weeks ago.

In my quest to look somewhat presentable despite wearing leggings and lycra for most of the week (you can call me a sartorially challenged yogi), I came across London based yoga wear brand Wellicious. What I love about Wellicious is that they are eco friendly, that they use natural, ultra comfortable fabrics AND that they […]
One of my favourite yoga teachers frequently reminds us not to take ourselves too seriously. I love that. Because after all, it’s only yoga, right? 🙂 If you can’t find the humour in yoga, have a look at the clip below. I’ll do a triple Om Shanti Shanti Shanti here and now if you don’t […]
