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...

 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...

March has been a pretty hectic month: I’m in the process of moving house, setting up a business whilst still juggling my regular yoga classes and PA work. So a 3-night escape to East Sussex countryside couldn’t have come sooner! Nourishment for the mind, body…and b...

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from Vagabond Temple’s Reiki course. I knew it had something to do with energy but it all seemed a bit ‘Harry Potter’ to me as I imagined myself using my energy field to levitate objects! As it turns out, there’s nothing magic or...

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.

Here's how I got on with Vagabond Temple's 7-day detox programme...

Day 1:

Today is the ‘warm-up’ before embarking on a 5-day juice fast. It prevents you from diving into the detox ‘deep-end’, as it eases the body into a fasted state by limiting the diet to simple fr...

I’ve only been at Vagabond Temple for two days and yet I already feel right at home. Arriving on Sunday afternoon jet-lagged and nervous, I was a little apprehensive about what to expect from my first Cambodian retreat. Straight away I was warmly welcomed into the...

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.
