    How is it the end of the month again?! Here’s what I’ve been reading about in November, grab a cuppa and settle down. I may have posted this one before but it bears repeating. All those chaturangas you’re doing in your astanga/vinyasa/flow class might not be that great for your shoulders. Speaking of Astanga,...

    aromatherapy::an olfactory journey

    by  • 19/11/2014 • 0 Comments

    I first discovered aromatherapy in 1992 in a head shop in Kew, London. Do you remember those places? They used to be everywhere in the early 90s.

    If you follow me on Instagram {and I really hope you do} then you’ll have seen I’m taking part in a yoga photo challenge {follow #yovember2014}. I’m enjoying it for two reasons; 1) because it’s got me thinking about my practice from a different viewpiont and 2) it doesn’t involve taking yoga selfies, pictures...

    I’ve found myself reading a lot about yoga and Pilates this month. Triggered by this post about tax in Washington DC I got to thinking about whether yoga is exercise or not {my thoughts, yes it is but that isn’t really the point of it}, I found this post and this one about what...

    massage for fibromyalgia::a true story

    by  • 24/10/2014 • 2 Comments

    It’s no secret that I’ve been collecting chronic illnesses since I was in my late teens.
