Tags: , , , |

Today's Yoga Challenge took me to Kristi Johnson's Forrest Yoga class at Indaba. I have to admit, having done a few Forrest Yoga classes before, the method hadn't quite resonated with me in the past. However, knowing that Kristi is a highly respected teacher and also a kind and adorable woman, I wondered how I

As today became a skeleton of what it promised to be in my diary due to the ongoing nanny saga, I spent the majority of my time on the phone with various nanny leads, nanny placement agencies and rescheduling yoga/bodywork clients into my future life; my life with a reliable, kind, well-organized nanny to help

Logistics proved challenging today, and unfortunately I was unable to make it to Graham's class at the Life Centre. As a last minute effort to keep the challenge buoyant I went to the Jivamukti Yoga Centre London to Nick's class who was filling in for another teacher. It's funny how things happen in life that
