Join me for a lovely 60mins family yoga session
followed by a fantastic vegan brunch to nourish our bodies.
We’ll also have the chance to chat to other parents and catch up with each other.
I run weekly Kids/Family Yoga classes at The Canvas Cafe in Shoreditch but on the 1st Saturday of the month (apart from April) I will be offering Family Yoga and Brunch.
Our family yoga session consists of yoga poses, storytelling, partner poses, dance, songs, games, massages and relaxation/quiet time.
Take a look at the vegan menu below (opens a new window) – brunch cost £10 and you’ll need to pay on the day as the money goes straight to the cafe. Brunch is optional so if you just want to come with your family for the free yoga session that’s totally cool too. 🙂
In August I joined in on a yoga challenge called #TheHeartofPractice – it was hosted by yogi instagrammer, Kerri Verna (@beachyogagirl). Kerri uploaded a post with 23 yoga poses that she had set for the challenge and each day participants would need to carry out that pose, a variation of it or if it was too challenging then something similar would be fine.
Fortunately I was able to carry out all of the poses with some variations of poses along the way. It was fun but also really challenging especially where I am only a beginner. Luckily, I still have some flexibility left in me and can perform a few of the advanced poses which I practiced more when I was younger. Here are the photos for each day of the yoga challenge.
You can learn how to safely do these moves on the YogaJournal website.
I can’t believe it’s been a month since I started my journey to a fitter, stronger and leaner me. 🙂 I joined the gym at the end of July and a couple of weeks before that I took up mother and baby pilates. I started off going to the gym for the fitness classes. I was taking up yoga and tried total body conditioning, ballet fit and functional classes and decided functional and yoga were my favourites.
So now my typical week of fitness classes looks like this:
Monday – yoga / gym (strength training or light cardio) / functional
Tuesday – rest day
Wednesday – mum & baby pilates or yoga or functional and gym (strength training or light cardio)
Thursday – total body conditioning or rest day if I’m too tired
If you’ve been following me on Instagram (@mannyngo) you will know that I have started to embark on a journey to a healthier lifestyle over the last few weeks. My ab-separation has pretty much gone now – at most they are between 1-1.5 finger width apart. Around the belly button feels a little more like just under 2 finger widths apart but I think it’s normally a little more gappy around the belly button.
