How to Enjoy Yoga Outside of Class

At least a hundred times I tried getting into yoga on my own. I’d download videos, pay for subscriptions online to streams and simple study up on poses or stretches. What finally got me into the groove though was investing in myself and joining a full-on studio. The one near my apartment in London is luckily super close, fairly affordable and just the motivation I need to get deep into daily practice.

I’m hanging on by my fingernails. The few precious, beautiful city days we had in London this year were way too few and far between.

I haven’t done a proper pub crawl in London yet, but I do love the cozy dive down the common. Although a few cocktails have impressed be at some swanky lounges, I also have kept my liquors limited while ‘out on the lash’. I certainly have taken advantage of all those beautiful happy hours deals though. However, when it’s damp and gross out during this long English winter, I like to simply wrap my hands around a pint or a stemmy wine glass right at home. Fortunately, the alcohol in…
