Starting Yoga… listen to me, I got you!

I have wanted to write this piece for a while now as so many wonderful people are wanting to give Yoga a try and are still intimidated by it. Honestly, the hardest part in Yoga is showing up. Once you are at the door of your studio you are ready. You are in a safe space to concentrate on yourself for an hour, now who doesn’t want or need that in 2018? The first thing you need to know is…

Confidence vs Arrogance

When I thought about what I wanted BSY to become, I realised that it wasn’t about the workout, it was about the experience. I wanted to create a Confidence Club that includes everyone: so let’s talk about exactly what that means. Being confident to me means I feel comfortable in my own skin, and I don’t mean by my appearance, it’s about the feelings I have or the decisions I make. It is also the awareness and understanding that what I…

BSY: Boys Supporting Yoga

The one question that I am often faced with by men is “How am I supposed to do Yoga if I am not flexible.” Men, yoga is not about how flexible you are now, it’s about how mobile we can make you, the understanding of your anatomy and how your body can move. The beauty of BSY is that it is an introduction into the “scary” world of Yoga, that is not intimidating and is built around giving your body…

Little Pups

Since launching Little Pups in September there is already so much to talk about. I have always wanted to take the stigma out of Yoga and show that Yoga really is for everyone, these children have reaffirmed it to me: it is by far my favourite day of the week. I am lucky enough to have teamed up with Thames Teachers, who provide teachers to schools to launch Teach Fit. We are offering schools the chance to take part in…
