Austin might just be our new favourite city! Here are 10 reasons why:

1. Lady Bird Lake

Austin’s got everything we could wish for from a city break, whilst being simultaneously immersed in nature. The sound of bird song fills the city centre, which sits just a stones...

A long weekend away in Puerto Rico was the perfect remedy to the busy build up to Christmas. We fell in love with the warmth of the people, the place and its fusion of Caribbean and Spanish culture: so, think late-night tapas, mojitos, and salsa (to dip and to danc...

In this article I’m going to be exploring the idea of ‘retreat.’ By going on my own personal retreat journey and developing a DIY retreat I hope to share some insights into the real reasons we retreat. Are retreats essentially self-indulgent mini-breaks? Or do they...

As many of you know, Dan and I recently relocated from London to Charlotte and so far we are loving our new life. Here’s how the ‘Queen City’ compares to the Queen’s home town...

Culture and Community

Charlotte is a city with a small-town feel, and balances the best...

I recently discovered an unpublished article from July 2017. I wrote it the night before the first- of two- quite complex knee surgeries. Hindsight is a wonderful thing as I can now see how much I have learnt from the experience. In fact, I am truly grateful for th...

Last year, both Royal Princes shed light on the stress they had suffered after the tragic loss of their mother Princess Diana. This was an unprecedented step away from the ‘stiff upper lip’ approach traditionally expected from establishment figures. Now Prince Will...

Stepping out of our comfort zone can be scary. So why should we - or would we- want to do it more? In this article I’m looking at how a 10-day honeymoon inadvertently functioned as a self-development retreat- pushing boundaries, rebooting the body, broadening persp...

Uncomfortable as it might be, let's start by thinking about all the stuff that gets left behind once we’re dead. The stuff in attics, garages and storage units. In the U.S., 90% of the 2.3 billion sqft of total storage space available is occupied. Given that 65% of...

3 weeks ago today I married my best friend...

I’m a big believer in never visiting the same place twice. Simply because I’m so aware of how big the world is and how much there is I want to see. And in general, I stick to that mantra. Except where Cornwall is concerned. I just can’t get enough of Cornwall’s qua...

The last time I embarked on a juice cleanse I was at a retreat in a remote part of Cambodia. We woke up with sun salutations, replaced meal times with massages and spent our afternoons strolling along beautiful beaches or reading in a hammock. It was the perfect pl...

I’m waiting in line for a coffee and I’ve already whipped out my smartphone- scanning, swiping and sending- simply to fill time. Or perhaps I should say to save time because I use the 30-second wait to send an email and post ‘Happy Birthday!’ on a friend’s Facebook...

I love a lot of cities that I would never want to live in. The two-day tourist binges on the guide book best bits but rarely experiences life like a local- which might be cramped, difficult and ultimately, unaffordable. A weekend away tells a very different story f...

Paris is still very much Europe’s cool kid: enticing in an international crowd yet refusing to change for any tourist. They don’t do compromise, unnecessary niceties or British sarcasm but they do pack a punch of charm and culinary class (more of which later!) The...

Cinque Terre (which literally means ' five lands) is a colourful region of the Italian Riviera made up of 5 cosy coastline towns. Even though it's become a bit of a summer time tourist trap, the area still delivers every Italian delight: stunning scenery, delicious...

ABOUT ME

My name is Katie and I'm passionate about the power of storytelling and how we can use it in our everyday lives to consciously create the lives that we want to lead. That's my why. The what is that I'm a coach, writer, yoga teacher, speaker and the founder of a yoga life coaching company called YOCO. I am also incredibly proud to be a part of 4D HumanBeing, an international leadership development and communication skills company.

Last year brought about a lot of exciting change: I got married to my best friend in June and we moved to the USA in August! We're currently living in Charlotte, North Carolina and we plan to travel all over the Americas. So we will be blogging about our adventures, our experiences as expats and our relationships, with ourselves, each other and our new community. This is a blog about everyday wellness; the yoga that happens off the mat; but mostly, it's a blog about being well and truly human. Here are some examples:

-I quit vipassana (a 10-day silent retreat) after 26 hours.

-I often often skip shavasana and yet, if you click here you'll find a whole article on the benefits of this lying down posture at the end of a yoga practice.

-I became a vegan, simply because it made me feel morally better than everyone else. Turns out I like eggs more than morals.

-I set up Monday evening Spanish Night to motivate Dan and I to learn a language. In reality, Spanish night involves us drinking Rioja and eating tapas.
