The new Triyoga Camden studio opened in December last year. The offer: 30 days unlimited classes at £40 for new members. This is what I loved and definitely did not love about my month at Triyoga Camden [hate is a word I prefer not to use].
Feeling the love…
Think upmarket hippy chic – if you are into Buddha statues and incense you will feel at home here. The four ample sized studios are well-equipped with good quality, clean yoga mats, straps, blocks and blankets.
It would be too easy to give this book a bad review for being another book by another supermodel. Yes – the cover is pink and features a pouty Miranda – and the title is a bit naff. But the truth is I like this book. I read TREASURE YOURSELF: Power Thoughts for My Generation by Miranda Kerr as a prequel to the more recently published EMPOWER YOURSELF which came out in 2014. Review to follow…
Miranda Kerr clearly wasn’t aiming her book at the academia so to slag it off for being too girly or having slightly larger-than-average print would be unjust. Reading this book was a bit like having a girls night in – minus the wine, ranting about men and girly drama. So really a much more relaxing and soul-nourishing experience.
A beautiful blog post from a Grumpy Spiritualist. For all the other grumpy spiritualists out there struggling with this time of year. ..

Having now waded knee-deep into 2015, that fateful day when we awoke bleary eyed with a sore head, then scribbled down some idealistic ramblings because it was the 1st of Jan, is now a distant blur. Staying motivated to keep New Year resolutions can be hard, even with the best of intentions.
Shock. Horror. The sign on the hotel spa door reads FKK Bereich, next to a picture of a swimsuit with a big red cross through it. That can’t be right – something must have got lost in translation. Perhaps special sauna suits will be provided inside the changing room? No such luck.
Later in the steam room, I find myself sitting opposite a rather large, mature gentleman – naked, manhood fully exposed. Then comes another one. Apparently the towel-wrap isn’t highly thought of in Germany. After the initial shock, I find myself uncomfortable for other reasons. Are they giving me dirty looks because I’m wearing a swimming costume? Yes. It turns out in the German sauna penises are polite and swimming costumes are rude. Freikörperkultur (FKK) is a German movement which translates as Free Body Culture. It is based on a naturist approach to sports and community living and the joy of being nude without any relationship to sexuality. Continue reading
