YOGA | DAY 2 OF TAKING A BREAK TO RECHARGE | LESSONS WE CAN LEARN FROM A BUTTERFLY.

Two days ago we spent the day in Moretti, a small locality in Piedmont region, Italy. I accompanied my husband to visit his uncle. Our stay was short but reminded me the beauty of countryside living.

YOGA | DAY 1 OF TAKING A BREAK TO RECHARGE | SWITCHING OFF.

12 MINUTES FULL-BODY YOGA FLOW.

This is a quick 12 minutes full body yoga sequence. It is a slow flow that will leave you feeling absolutely energised. I love practicing in the morning, keeping it slow helps me to fully align each movement with each breath.

It is one of my go-to short sequences because it keeps the muscles working, stretch and tone your legs- especially the gluteal muscles, help tone your arms and abdominal muscles, and overally strengthen your core. Read more

PSX_20180428_115058
I remember my very first yoga class. It was in Colombo, Sri Lanka, nine years ago, with my good friend Haissa. I can’t recall what prompted us to join the class but yes, one morning, we found ourselves looking at our toes, bum up, fingers wide spread, navel to spine, doing our very first downward facing dog at a local Hatha Yoga Institute.
