Yoga mats review

Gear & accessories | Friday 11th September 2020

Whatever the discipline, when practicing regularly it is important to be equipped appropriately. Yoga has the advantage of not requiring a lot of equipment. Some purists will tell you that you don't even have to have a mat. It's true, however when you're just starting out or when you practice every day, I would tend to recommend using a mat. Both for comfort and for the idea of ​​delimiting a personal space for this inward practice. When I started, I used mats from the studio I was practicing in. Without being aware of my luck, I practiced from the start on very good quality mats (Lululemon - 5mm). It was only when I tested other studios w...

Continued Education: Yin yoga

Continued Education: Yin yoga

This pandemic has certainly compromised a lot of plans for all of us. As far as I'm concerned, this year I had the intention to attend a Yin yoga training.

Home practice: create your yoga space in 5 steps

Home practice: create your yoga space in 5 steps

Since I became a yoga teacher, I started practicing at home way more than I used to. I guess this happened for a couple of reasons: I’ve learned how to make my own sequences - which means that I won’t be randomly throwing postures without warming up my body correctly - and I’ve also realised the benefits of practicing at my own pace. I still love going to classes with my favourite teachers, but I also know that it’s important to practice on your own, as yoga teachers have to squeeze a se...

With everything that’s going on at the moment, I’m finding myself with a lot more free time. Many of the things I used to do to distract myself are no longer options, and I’m spending a lot more time with my own thoughts. This can be really diffic...

Pranayama: the breathing techniques

Often when I meet people who've never tried yoga, they tell me that they don't think they could "do it" because they're not flexible enough. To which I usually answer "but you do know how to breathe, right? Then that's the hardest part sorted"....
