Sitting waiting to board flight 1 of 2. ✈️ First leg to Bangkok then onto Siem Reap!
Yesterday I did a huge 2 hour yoga session as I knew I wouldn’t be moving much for the next 24 hours 😭🙈 I did a nice amount of strength, played on my handstand canes and then finished with a lovely yin session.
This pose is called Up-Swan and it’s designed to stimulate the lumbar spine through compression of the vertebrae. I’m pretty high up in this as I have quite a flexible back but you can stay in your forearms and even put your forearms on a bolster or cushion to lift yourself higher without any strain. I also my @liforme#yogapad to put my knee on which was super helpful in making it comfy!
I then finished with a lovely twist (called Twisted Roots in Yin) on both sides which was a great counter pose after extending the spine in Up-Swan.
So do I feel ready to be on a flight for 14 hours? Ermmmm... not really 😂 I’ve found a yoga spot already in Siem Reap called The Peace Cafe, so I’m already planning on going there ASAP once we’re settled. Yay!
If you fancy seeing what we’re up to I’ll be sporadically posting on my stories. It felt so damn good to set an “out of office” email this morning though... 3 weeks baby! Time to relax, explore and *try* not to think about work until I’m back!

Can you believe that I used to live 5 minutes walk from this place couple of years ago and never managed to take a photo there?! 🙈I always had it in my mind though and went back there last week! 💁🏼♀️Shoreditch is such a cool area with plenty of murals, wall art and installations 💃Do you have this kind of area in the city where you live? 🏙
