Pave the path to distant goals with downloadable Yearly and Monthly Planners

2020 trained us to expect the unexpected. After the year of global turmoil and with the start of a new year, are we ready to continue on and dare to plan?

Ashtanga online live classes

My picks for Ashtanga online live classes include: cordial Ashtanga Yoga – Modified with Helen G at the Lotus Yoga Wellbeing, accessible Ashtanga with Rachel at the Wild Wolf’s Yoga and insightful Ashtanga Yoga with Nicola Harpin at the Yoga at the Reach.

In hindsight, I could’ve gone to the beginners class and experience a milder introduction to yoga, but back then I also had a lot of Read more…

Yoga for Sport live online classes

This week, my picks for Yoga for Sport include: alleviating Yoga for Cyclists with Mel Skinner, intriguing Yoga for Climbers with Alex Meade and resourceful Yoga for Sport with Lana King at The Hive. I’ll start off with a confession: I’ve never been to a ‘Yoga for Sport’ class before I decided to write a post on it. There are many variations of yoga classes with target audiences under many names: Yoga for Athletes, Yoga Read more…
