Traditionally, the Ashtanga Primary Series is HARD! It's fast-paced, moving from one challenging pose to the next, with the breath, and can take anything up to 2 hours in an Ashtanga led-class. It needs full concentration, focus, determination and dedication.Read More
Whilst I teach yoga twice a week, as a new, working-mum, I don't actually practice the physical element of yoga nearly as much as I want to. (To be fair, even when I was single and a fully-fledged career gal, I still didn't practice much). Life just gets in the way....Read More

Very excited to launch our new brand and website, Yoga by 18, today. It's been a long time coming but it's finally here! We traipsed up to the beautiful Moel Famau on Saturday afternoon to create these silhouette shots for the website and we're really pleased with them. The clouds were unbelievable and we later found out they were called lenticular clouds, a rare meteorological phenomenon, according to the Chronicle! We couldn't have asked for more.Read More

Welcome to the first newsletter and most importantly, thank you for joining my Ashtanga Yoga for Beginners class. I hope you've enjoyed the first two classes. Ashtanga Yoga is generally much faster paced than your usual 'relaxing' yoga class, so you will hopefully feel like you've had more of a workout.Read More
