With Northampton Hotpod Yoga Franchisee, Alice Williams.

To meticulously plan, or go with the flow? What’s best when it comes to starting your own business?

Is the blood, sweat and tears 😅 a necessary part of the doing-it-for yourself deal? What about pursuing a path of Least Effort?

Is that even possible?🤔

FLIP FLOP READY YOGA

Ramp up some summer self-lovin with these 3 simple steps

Flip flops and (come to think of it), handbags too. I just lurrrve.

Ask me why… OK I’m imagining you’re asking (I like to ‘see’ you as I’m writing this stuff – else sometimes this blogging thing can feel a little crazy). Anyways, the answer is…they always fit. Right? You don’t dig around in your shoe stack and hope you’re going to get back into your fave flops. At least that’s never happened to me.

So, girls (and boys if you’re out there) you’re flip flops are always good to go…each summer. Ready, steady. They’re ready to rock. Question is, are you?

It’s getting hot in here! Announcing TWO new summer yoga programmes.

TWO new summer yoga programmes coming soon…things are hotting up, but stay cool.

Hellloooo. Exciting news. I’ve just wrapped up the details on two new summer yoga programmes. First up, we’ll be ramping up some summer self-lovin’ during a five class practice that will find you Flip Flop Ready, no sweat.

I’ve also created a special five class programme for athletes/active folks looking to train smart, set priorities and stay on track as the holiday season threatens to unravel their hard-earned fitness gains.

Don’t let a summer break sabotage your health and wellbeing goals. Yoga has your back.

5 Yogi Answers To Your Pre 26.2 Problems

Yogi-In-Training Q&A

Q: I’m on London Marathon Countdown. How can yoga help me prepare for my best 26.2?

First of all awesome work. It takes big-ass discipline and determination to get this close to your 26.2 and I know it’s not easy. I earned my medal (that’s mine opposite) four years ago. I was a super fledging yogi-in-training (BC – Before Chopra) and using yoga asana (poses) purely for the physical benefits, as a lot of us do.

Truth is I didn’t really get that there was much more to it. I may even have shrugged it off as not for me. Big mistake.

I didn’t know just how much yoga could offer a massive edge to my training, performance and overall wellbeing. I’m here today (AC – After Chopra) to show you how it can and if you’re open, to share some yoga inspired pre-marathon preparations to send you on your way to your best 26.2. Feel free to share them with your athletic friends and family.

Why is my physio saying yoga is a good idea?

Hands up if you’ve ever had physio? Hands up if the reason you called your physio was down to any one of these?

  1. Pain
  2. Limitation
  3. Frustration

Probably all three right?

Now ask yourself, was something way, WAY off balance before you actually made that call. Had your body stopped talking in whispers and started shouting – “You got to help me out here. Stop doing the thing that you are doing and let’s try and fix this.”

Oh yes – I’ve been there and I know I am not alone.

According to the NHS, the things we mostly seek physio out for include one or more of the following:

Hold on to your seat – Chair Yoga is coming.

Yes, it’s really yoga, so please don’t sit this one out.

Yoga Local has teamed up with PhysioPlus in Northampton to launch a five-week adaptive Chair Yoga programme.

This seated practice begins in the New Year and is focused on helping anyone who may be limited in movement or recovering from an injury to discover the benefits of yoga.

Why Chair Yoga?

Here’s what happens when you find yoga from the comfort of your chair. You will…
