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 off...

I recently discovered an unpublished article from July 2017.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 that y...

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 place...

 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 experience...

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, gestures, s...

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 belly...

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 because I'...

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 365...

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 myst...

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 may...

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 play a...

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 fruits...

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 comm...

If you ever find yourself in Basel (for business or for leisure) then I would really recommend trying out a class at B. Yoga Basel. The studios international teaching team offer a variety of classes taught in multiple languages, to ensure that there really is something...
