For those who hate exercise: 7 sneaky ways to move more

For those who hate exercise: 7 sneaky ways to move more

I tell people often how much I hate exercise, and I’ve said it before on this blog (I’m sure..??). 

When I think of exercise, I see it as a chore. I don’t feel particularly co-ordinated, my limbs often don’t feel like they follow the command of my brain.

So how do I trick myself into moving more for someone who hates sports and frankly quite enjoys being in a horizontal position?

You Don't Need To Be Bendy To Be A Yoga Teacher

You Don't Need To Be Bendy To Be A Yoga Teacher

In the last week alone, FIVE people have enquired about our teacher training and then added that  they aren't sure they qualify to join it because they don't think they are bendy enough.

This saddens me.

It means all those instayogis and their fancy, impressive looking poses, have given people the impression that you have to be able to do THAT in order to be a teacher.

But think about it: if someone is good at maths, are they necessarily good at teaching it? No?

Yoga for PMS (and Irritable Bowel Syndrome too)

Yoga for PMS (and Irritable Bowel Syndrome too)

We recently made 20-minute video of Nurturing Yoga for our YogAttitude Superheroes. (If you didn't get it, never fear, sign up and I will send it out again tomorrow, Thursday 1 Oct).

It's kinda funny that the poses people asked to have in their nurturing sequence were basically these 5 Yoga Poses for PMS - which work equally well if you suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome because the basic idea here is that you are soothing your lower abdomen and helping elimination to happen as it should.
