Yoga Things

I thought it could be fun to write about all my favourite yoga bits and bobs and why I rely on yoga for my mental health and resilience levels.

As someone with a very busy mind, I find yoga one of the few ways to quieten it. When I have a bad day, all I want to do is run to my mat.

I do balancing poses after a hard day, inversions when I’m sad, flexibility sequences whenever I can, breathing based yoga poses before a exam or on the bus and strength based yoga when I need to sweat.

There is a type of yoga for every ailment, every body type and for every personally in my humble opinion. I mean even dogs are doing yoga these days. It also doesn’t need to be about bending and flexing and balancing it can be about finding peace in a busy world or simply after a busy day.
