You can’t enter a newsagent these days without coming across magazine titles that demand you to ‘loose those last five pounds’ or ‘become ab fab in three weeks’, all ‘just in time for summer 2018.’ The way to the perfect beach body is often portrayed as a complicated one, littered with sacrifices, requiring a huge […]
Hello! How is everyone? I have been busy being calm recently. Extremely occupied doing nothing much but sitting back and looking at life. I am well into the second month of my daily yoga practice, and it seems to be messing with my head in the most positive sense possible. Because for the last two […]
In my quest to become an avid yogi, I am trying styles and classes I have previously ignored. Like hot yoga. Because who in their right mind would want to exercise in tiny pants?
