Just because someone is doing something with their body that you didn’t think was possible, or you don’t think you could ever do that yourself, it doesn’t mean they are any better or worse at yoga than you are. although seeing a beautiful picture with a beautiful yoga pose can be inspiring, the point of yoga is how it feels, during and after your practice, it never is about how it looks. there is no such thing as being “good” at yoga. instagram is all about beautiful photographs, but yoga is just about living a beautiful life - whilst using this platform don’t get distracted with comparisons.

Joining in on another challenge that focuses on inversions and heart openers. these are kind of my favorite things so i couldn’t resist. day 1 of #handsdownheartup is down dog. i seriously always forget that this is an inversion. but any pose where your head is lower than your heart is an inversion. and there are so many great benefits that come with this set up, like increased circulation, better focus, and more energy. well, at least for me. tried to really focus on opening my chest in this pose tonight. ahhhh...it feels so good. -

Self-care has become a very lucrative business. everywhere you look someone is trying to sell you something that will help you be a better version of yourself. candles, creams, facial masks, so many things, and oh so many different sportswear brands out there at the moment promising better performance, better support, better something ... 🙄 self-care isn’t really about these things though. in reality you don’t have to spend a penny on self-care. enough sleep is self-care and that doesn’t cost anything (you don’t need silk pillow cases to have a good night sleep). taking the time to go for a walk or to read your favourite book, taking a bath or exercising (doing yoga in your living room 😜) - those things don’t cost anything. i’ve been using the same old pair of leggings for almost five years to do my exercise, and only last month for my birthday i received a new pair - you don’t need ten different exercise outfits to do exercise. self-care is really just looking after yourself and finding some time in your busy daily schedule to have a well deserved break. buying £50 scented candle won’t help you calm down if you don’t know how to sit down for five minutes and breathe. it’s nice to have nice things, but don’t get trapped into thinking that self-care costs. focus on the time you spend on yourself, rather than the money.
