How I get Fit? Any Way I Can!

Yoga is something that is very much connected to your mindset. There’s a man in my current classes who is constantly looking at everyone else, grunting through the tougher poses and packing up before shavasana (rest) is over at the end. Sadly, although he seems to be in better shape than I am and others in class, he’ll never get where he wants to go. He’s missed the point of yoga – it’s about letting go, gently moving where your body allows and not letting ego be in the way….

How Can Travel Insurance Save Lives?

Going back to the US from the UK always was smooth sailing. We’d visiting family and friends a couple times a year, not thinking much about the details of the trips. After all, I was just going to see loved one in my old hometown, not do anything dangerous. So why would I consider any coverage? Last summer when I went to the US for a visit, I started having debilitating panic attacks. I was inconsolable. And scared. This wasn’t anything I ever thought I’d experience on a simple visit,…

7 Ways to Slay Your Ski Weekend in France

I said goodbye to last year in style with a quick winter weekend in Morzine, France. While I love skiing and had a blast skiing in Chamonix before, I decided to use the time to rest up instead before the holiday mayhem. Instead, there was tons of wintry activities to look forward to, delicious cosy meals, and plenty of bubbles by the hot tub. Yas girl, I was ready. I strongly suggest you use up a bit of you holiday time to try a snowy weekend this year before the…

Just Keep Swimming: Benefits of a Regular Swim Routine

I was lucky enough in life to learn how to swim at a young age. Growing up near the ocean it was a perfect excuse to get to paddling, especially if I wanted freedom from my mom’s gaze when enjoying the beach! I also had some great lessons in outdoor pools, indoor swimming arenas and other nearby watering holes. Snorkeling became one of my top things to do while traveling as well – and I hope to add scuba diving to the roster this year as well. To Swim or…

Yoga on the Beach: Awesome or Obnoxious?

It took me ages to settle on the perfect yoga mat. I’m obsessed with the simple Luluemon mats at my London yoga studio, and recently have loved my Cork Yogis mat that also gives back to female empowerment programs. So when someone suggests practicing yoga OFF my mat, I’m none too thrilled. It’ll mess up my whole groove. I won’t know what to do! I’ll slip and fall more than usual! But trying yoga in some different environments has offered some benefits. A change of pace and atmosphere helps rejuvenate…

Preparing for Winter Wonderland: Walking Tips in the UK

Walking holidays in the UK do not end because it’s wintertime. I was shocked when our British friends suggested an outdoor getaway to Scotland in December last year! When it gets cold, I immediately think of fleeing to somewhere tropical. Not a place covered in snow. Or at least, I’m going to stay inside if there’s a blizzard outside. But I’ve learned that it’s wildly refreshing to spend time outdoors in the winter – especially as the short days make for less hours in the daylight. My mood was greatly…
