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...

 A lesson in flexibility (not failure!!)

I lasted a grand total of 26 hours at a 10-day silent meditation retreat.  Which is surprising because I rarely ever quit. I’ve pushed through a 100-mile bike ride on two dodgy knees, endured a week-long juice fast and experi...

For 10 day whole days I will be sitting in silence, without internet, a mobile or a book. Why? Because I have signed up for a Vipassana meditation retreat...

During a Vipassana students observe a noble silence that prohibits communication- whether by speech, gesture...

Tias Little's 5-day immersion into yoga of the subtle body has transformed my approach and attitude towards practicing yoga. Over the past year my knowledge and understanding of yoga has vastly but it's practical application has somewhat plateaued. Primarily becaus...

At the turn of the year we often find ourselves evaluating and examining the previous year’s progress. We focus on what we don’t have and what we didn’t achieve rather than congratulating ourselves on our successes. At the very least you’ve made it through another...

Shavasana is the crown jewel of yoga asana and is the most difficult pose to understand- physically, mentally and spiritually. We end our practice in this lying down position because this is moment when we let go of all of the technique. Throughout the practice we...

Teaching at Vagabond Temple has taught me so much about my self and my understanding of yoga. I’ve had the opportunity to teach a variety of students from all over the globe, with classes varying from fast flowing vinyasas to restful restoratives. The freedom to pl...

I went into Vagabond Temple’s 7-day detox programme hoping to reboot my digestive system and recalibrate my hunger But these were merely surface-level side effects when compared to the way fasting has completely transformed my relationship with food.

A lot of things in life are out of our control. Death, disease, redundancy, difficult people... Whilst we may not be able to change certain circumstances we can control how we respond to the situation. As my yoga teacher, Lorraine Woods, would always say “why make...

Last week I made a start on my reading list for my yoga training. I’m currently reading a borrowed copy of Pantanjali’s* commentary on the Yoga Sutras, ‘Four Chapters on Freedom’. The copy is 3 years older than me and was printed in India, so it certainly turned a...

Yoga teacher training had been at the back of my mind for a long while and yet until now I’d never acted on it. I guess I supposed it would be something I would do ‘when I’m older’ or ‘once I’ve mastered splits up the wall. Those simple and rather flimsy excuses w...

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.
