Yoga For When You’re Unwell (17 mins)
This Yoga video is a great one to practice when you have a cold / flu or are generally feeling run down or unwell. We all get sick sometimes and it’s often a way of our bodies asking us to slooooooow down. It can actually provide the opportunity to take some rest, make self-care a priority and learn to listen to the body’s needs. Take the chance to move out of busy go go go mode and into a more mindful way of being.
Yoga Check In (10 mins)
This short video combines mindfulness, breathing exercises and gentle movement. It’s just 10 minutes long and is designed to make space and time in any day to draw the focus inwards for a moment. For me, a huge part of Yoga is really about learning to be able to sit with myself through both comfort and discomfort and to offer compassion towards myself when things feel difficult. This 10 minute Yoga check in invites you to take a seat with yourself, take a precious moment to breathe and in doing so land the body, mind and soul in the present moment.

It’s a particularly great one to do if you’ve been feeling anxious or ungrounded / all over the place as it offers the opportunity to get back to your roots and come back down to Earth!
Yoga for Hikers / Energising Vinyasa (20 mins)
I devised this sequence for hikers during a hike in the Lake District, UK. So, it focuses on leg strengthening, chest opening and vinyasa. But it’s not only a good one for hikers, it would also fit into a normal day as an energising flow! The pace is quite fast and it is not suitable for beginners. Aimed at those who already have a Yoga practice.

Guided Savasana in French (6 mins)
Savasana est une posture du yoga. On peut dire que c’est une des plus importantes postures parce que dans cette posture le corps entière est complètement relâché et détendu.

Ça vous permet de trouver un moment de tranquillité qui est super important et on a tous besoin de ça. Cette posture peut améliorer les problèmes de sommeil, aidé à gérer la douleur et apporter une clarté mentale. Alors écoute cette méditation guidée de 6 minutes pour se détendre : )

As the leaves begin to fall, we can take the time to sit with ourselves, tune in and notice what we are ready to let go of ourselves. It can fit into busy schedules, as it’s just over 10 minutes long and is suitable for any time of day.
*** If you’re injured, pregnant or have any medical conditions then seek advice from your physio, doctor or yoga teacher in person before practicing online videos ***
I know that for some people it can be a real struggle to even find 20 minutes in the day to take time out to do videos like these because of how much time a lot of people have to put into surviving / childcare / everything else but my hope is that everyone who needs a bit of self care and time to themselves can find a way to fit in practices like this where possible.
It’s really important to me that Yoga practices are accessible which is why I make these at home videos so that even if someone doesn’t have the time / money / option to get along to a class in person, they can still practice at home. Some studios offer discounted or free places to those who can’t afford the full price but unfortunately not all studios do this.
