Wild & Free – Wild Deodorant Review

Ever on the hunt to find environmentally friendly alternatives, I decided to give ‘natural deodorant’ a try. Reader, I was skeptical. Let’s face it, as soon as we become aware of sweating as teenagers, we work in every way we can to prevent it. The damp patches, the smell and the discomfort. Would a natural…

What Running Taught Me About Self-Sabotage

As defined by Lisa Jeffs, ‘Self-sabotage is when we actively or passively take steps to prevent ourselves from reaching our goals.’ How many of you would consider that you are a ‘self-saboteur’? Not me. Nope. Definitely not. I always go after my goals.  Or do I?  Looking back, I think I had talked myself out…

Brightening Up Covid Classes with 3rd Rock

It will come as no surprise to pretty much anyone reading this that I have not been teaching many classes since March. I actually think I’ve taught about 8. Between the pandemic and the weather, teaching was just not on the cards. But, at the time of writing this, gyms and studios are starting to…

Taking Time for Yourself with Tea People

Not to mention attempting to add a social…

With the rate we use plastic increasing along with the population, approximately 8 million…

Advanced Yogis Only

So, what is an advanced ‘yogi’ - please enlighten me. Because, next year will be my tenth year of practise and fourth year of teaching and I would not consider myself advanced.  I really, really, REALLY, hate classes that exclude based on ‘experience’. What I regard as ‘advanced’ yoga will be different to what you…
