So I've recently invested in some foam blocks to help some of my students with their stretches. I personally never wanted to use any yoga apparatuses myself as I've always believed all you need is your own body but as a teacher I have observed my students struggling with certain positions and I want them to be able to stretch safely and achieve positive results so yeah I now have a new appreciation for blocks and straps and see them as helpful tools.

Costuming this morning #workinprogress.
 Theme....#international #steampunk and as I've recently found out I'm 57.5% Irish Scottish Welsh I have incorporated some tartan and a sporran (kilt pouch) on my thigh and for extra fun some bling on my back and bum 😁 getting inspired for #steampunkthethames festival November 2018 it will be my 5th year performing it's became a bit of a tradition I adore this genre.

This is an advertisment from 5 years ago when I was a total beginner I think this maybe the longest I have stuck with anything in my life and my passion and love for this artform only grows, daily! I now teach 5 classes a week and run a community Circus 💖💖💖💖

I'm very pleased to announce I have started a community Circus where we train to perform we have been meeting for a month now and every week is more fun than the one before. You never know who's going to turn up or what's going to happen. It's awesome I love it! ❤🎪😍

Although Yoga nidrasana is not part of my yoga practice I like to do it now and then because it feels really good, comfortable and relaxing I know it doesn't look like it but you can trust me. 😘 Getting into this in 10 seconds to take a selfie was the challenging part 😂 oh #instagram ha ha

Departing Auckland City on a crisp autumns day traveling home over the harbour the the gem of the Hauraki gulf, Waiheke Island.
