That niggly old Sacroiliac joint

Recently I've been exploring the cause and effects of Sacroiliac joint dysfunction, and postural instability causing pain/discomfort in the long term. Since teaching yoga I've seen many participants suffer with “lower back” or “hip” pain, which upon further investigation has revealed aggravation in the SI joint.

Music playlists for yoga

Those of you who have attended my yoga classes will know I prefer to have music playing in the background, arranged to complement the energy level of the class. I've found that background music also adds a sensory element to help anchor the 'monkey mind'. Many have queried the tracks, so I've compiled three of my yoga playlists in Spotify.

Moving through 2018 with EASE

Instead of setting goals at the start of each year, I prefer to choose a word (or three) to be my theme for the year. I can then revisit at regular intervals throughout the year to ensure my actions and intentions are aligned with this theme. This year, my main focus word has been “EASE”.

The power of voice

Charlie Chaplin's speech at the end of The Great Dictator is as meaningful now as it was in 1940. Chaplin is commonly recognised for his humorous silent performances – silly walks and hat tricks – but this is a voice to remember.

Being present and productive

I was honoured to be a guest on The Productive Woman podcast with Laura McClellan, discussing how I harmonise between my freelance graphic design work and my yoga teaching. The main theme was about being really present and mindful in whatever you are doing in that moment. Multi-tasking is so 1990s!

In 2014 I explored yoga poses in ordinary and extraordinary places. This year was about "creatively defy gravity". Here is 'Imagination Levitation' – 100 photos of dedication, exploration, joy, perseverance, laughter and bruises.
