I’ve always been a runner. As a teenager, I enjoyed the individual yet competitive nature of it all and spent many Saturday mornings in a muddy field with my cross country team. As an adult, I continued to love it…. until I had kids. Suddenly, I craved something different. I felt I had flogged my body for so many years, mainly out of fear and inner competition and although I still wanted to exercise, I needed it to come from a kinder place.
I tried various different options to keep active, but I always felt like something was missing.
Until my soul sister introduced me to Adriene.
Yoga with Adriene is like doing yoga in your living room with your bestie right there with you to make you smile and have your back. The youtube channel is chock full of videos for every occasion.
Want to sweat?
She literally has a video for every occasion! And a bloody amazing one at that.
I was hooked from the get go. I used to look forward to coming home to do my yoga practice. And the more I did, the better I felt. And the better I felt, the more I wanted to do.
It’s a daily part of my life now and I will be eternally grateful to Adriene for that.
She has a couple of month long series which were fab:
- And if you’re totally new to yoga – WELCOME! You’re gonna love it. My advice would be to start with the foundations of yoga clips on her channel, which are fantastic in explaining how to move your body in each pose, without feeling like an idiot.
And the newest series is called REVOLUTION – 31 days of yoga. The concept totally jives with the idea of small steps to big change, and works on making time for daily practice. I’m utterly loving it and it confirms that I have totally found my thing in the world of exercise. It lets me sweat, build strength, tone muscle and flex my mental and self-love muscles too!

Life is all about changing tactics now and again. Don’t stick with something just because you used to do it or have always done it.
As Adriene says: ‘find what feels good”
And I did.
