I will put my foot right in it and maybe shatter a dream or two in the process, but contrary to what some people might imagine, teaching yoga is not such an easy job.Read More
When I first took up yoga ten years ago, most people attending classes did so to become more supple and also to de-stress - which is still the case today of course - but what they (myself included) might not have expected so much at the time is a challenging practice that included holding standing poses for longer as well as inversions and arm balances.Read More
I hope you are keeping well in this change of season.
The Embody Wellness yoga centre where I teach 3 classes a week got a lovely review in Yoga Magazine (as well as myself, yay!).

Oh yum… a good old fashioned British meal to bid farewell to London Fashion Week. Almond coated fish fried in ghee with oven baked celeriac chips - the ultimate low starch/carb chip alternative - and potassium packed don’t forget. Find yourself some tasty samphire that’s only in season for…
Without further ado, here it is: I have been practicing yoga for about 10 years now, teaching in London for 7 years, organising retreats and workshops, but I never ever, until earlier this month, took the time to go on a yoga retreat myself! Oh irony…Read More
Here is a 10-minute video I put together when asked by Hemsley & Hemsley to design a short sequence to help participants and attendees of Fashion Weeks all over the world survive these exciting events.
I hope you will enjoy it!
The Yoga Retreat taking place in Marrakech 5-11th November (as shown in a previous post on 7th August) is now fully booked! Looking forward to it :-)
It has been busy on the holiday front especially with the Olympics which encouraged quite a few Londoners to flee the country to sunnier shores despite an incredibly smooth fortnight as we now know. Oh and of course, we have not exactly been blessed with a summer worthy of the name…
What actually makes a good holiday?Read More
Excusez-moi, tout le monde, it has been quiet on the blogging front but I had a proper holiday where Internet connection was not an option even if I had been remotely tempted!
Despite this being a bit of an old news, I am reposting a link in case you had any problem with the previous one mentioned in my very first blog. Mmm, yes, I still need to figure my way around Tumblr-Land!
Anyway, I wrote this blog on Hemsley & Hemsley’s page in June and it is all about food: tamasic, rajastic and sattvic. If that is enough to arouse your curiosity, have a little read! Just click on the title and you will be redirected straight to the right the place. I hope you will enjoy it.
I am so pleased to share this event!
I will be holding a yoga retreat in beautiful Marrakech between 5-11 November later this year. A nice way to escape the winter, deepen our practice and immerse ourselves in a completely different culture.Read More
Here is what happens when 2 apples, 2 kiwis, a pear, spinach, kale, Super Green powder, almond butter, almond milk and water land in a blender… Goodness for your taste buds and your body! The content of the blender makes about 4 servings. Enjoy!
I wish I could say I eventually came up with some amazing mathematical formula because it would mean I am a genius! Sadly, not exactly being blessed with the mathematics genes, this is simply meant as “Olympic Games opening in 2 days from today”.Read More
My name is Florence, I am a Vinyasa Flow yoga teacher, and yes, I can be a little slow at keeping up with the “modern world”!
First I resisted having a mobile phone the first couple of years I moved to London back in 2002 and then had to admit that, well, I simply needed one to get on with work. Being a freelance translator at the time, it was not great to have my flatmates picking up my messages…! Did I miss out on work? Most def!Read More
