Yoga Teacher Training: A Year On

  I still remember with absolute clarity my first day of yoga teacher training. It’s hard to believe that a year has passed since I first stepped foot in Power Living and what was to become one of the most magical and transformational journeys of my life was at its very birth. I had been in […]

The Modern Yogi Project: In the Beginning

Things have been rather stressful of late. My Instagram feed may be made up of picturesque sunrises that show Bondi basking in an early morning glow and cozy book nooks with steaming cups of tea, and while the vast majority of the time I’m living the Australian dream, that’s not to say there aren’t stresses […]

Wanderlust 108

Back In February, I had planned to spend the weekend in Thredbo at a Wanderlust Festival; set to be a three day wellness retreat consisting of yoga, paddle-boarding and mountain air, it sounded like a much-needed post-party detox following on from my thirtieth birthday celebrations. Alas it was’t to be; my sister and her best […]

Qualifying as a yoga teacher with Power Living

If you’d told me a year ago I’d be living in Sydney having just received my official qualification as a yoga teacher with Power Living, I would have reacted with mild hysteria at the thought of ever leaving my beloved home, family and friends behind in London, and bemusement at the mention of Power Living – […]

Power Living Graduation Weekend

  And so it is over; after much blood, sweat, and many many tears, our yoga teacher training has come to an end. Our graduation weekend not only marked the end of our time teacher training with Power Living, but the anniversary of a wonderful first three months of Sydney-side living. As the queen of […]

Assisting with Power Living

Given my extended stay in Bali, it seemed that no sooner had I stepped off the plane – and straight into the office – that I was leaving on Friday lunch time for another intense weekend of Power Living teacher training. It being a sweltering 42 degrees on the Friday, suffice to say the studio […]

Power Living Does Ubud

Since my Power Living yoga retreat finished five days ago I’ve avoided blogging about it. I like to think of myself as something of a wordsmith – albeit an amateur one – and have struggled to get into words quite how incredible the week was. To say that prior to starting the retreat I was […]

Yoga Teacher Training: Part Two

To say the first forty hours of yoga teacher training was a challenge is something of an understatement. Ill and underprepared, despite an energizing walk home after the fourth and final day, watching in awe as the sun set over North Bondi, I got home, crawled into bed and cried. My body ached, my brain […]

One Wave Fluro Fridays

Tomorrow is World Mental Health Day; and thus, despite being half way through a very intense four days of yoga teacher training, I wanted to blog about the second yoga event I’ve attended since moving to Sydney a month ago run by mental health charity OneWave. Following on from last Friday’s incredible sunrise yoga, I signed up for […]

Sunrise Yoga with One Wave

While I certainly consider myself a morning person – and indeed often wake far earlier than necessary in order to read before work, when my alarm went off at 5am on Friday morning after a late night and copious glasses of prosecco, I almost succumbed to the temptation of hitting snooze and falling back into […]
