Meet Aoife Kenny — doctor & expat yogi.

Thursday, May 15th, 2014

One of the greatest rewards of my work as a yoga teacher is getting to know, learn from and be inspired by the people who take my courses. As we’re gearing up for the next round of 30 Days of Yoga, we wanted to stop and put the stoplight on a few of the students […]

The significance of (not) being an aid worker – and yoga as gardening

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Today’s post comes from Amanda Scothern, my co-teacher for the 30 Days of Yoga for Aid Workers course (which begins on 19 May). Amanda has been working in the the humanitarian sector for 15 years, practising yoga for 10 years and teaching yoga for three. Last night I was reviewing the transcript for one of […]

Why I haven’t practiced yoga for five weeks. And why that makes me a better teacher.

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

I haven’t done any yoga for five weeks. Does that shock you? I’ve been teaching people how to get into a regular practice of home yoga for almost four years. It’s my flagship program – the core teaching that underlies everything else I teach. Want to be braver? Do more yoga, I say. Want to […]

Why Home Yoga Practice is a Powerful Tool for Body Acceptance

Friday, April 5th, 2013

Guest Post by Anna Guest-Jelley (co-host, with me, of 30 Days of Curvy Yoga) When I started practicing yoga, I did it at home. There wasn’t a class on every corner like there is today. But the main reason I did it is that even the idea of going to a class made me feel […]

Enough!

Friday, March 15th, 2013

Last week I wrote about all the women I know who are working harder and harder and harder, and still feel they can never do, or be enough. I’ve been thinking about them all week, particularly with the polarised debate raging online and in the mainstream media about ‘Lean In’ – the new book from Sheryl […]

I know need this now because I don’t have time for it.

Tuesday, March 12th, 2013

Today one of my 30 Days of Yoga graduates wrote a post explaining why she’s signing up again for the course starting next Monday. She wrote: I need this right now. Because I don’t have time. Because I’m too tired to make the effort on my own. Because I feel weak and I know it’ll […]

You can’t do any better (but you can feel better)

Saturday, March 9th, 2013

In the past week I’ve spoken to more than a dozen of my female friends about their current work, family and life situation. Two things struck me about all these conversations. Firstly, everyone is doing so much and secondly, no-one feels they are doing enough. One of the women works in a government department where […]

New and improved 30 Days of Yoga courses open for registration today

Tuesday, March 5th, 2013

We’ve been working on an upgrade to my 30 Days of Yoga courses for almost four months. And it’s done! It’s beautiful, highly functional, and will make the experience of these courses even more enjoyable. Which is not bad, given this is what people said about the old version: “Wowza. This is all so deeply […]
