Is a bit of a favourite topic of mine - a pose like this one, balancing stick/warrior 3/virabhadrasana 3 is a fantastic example of muscular control.
If you use momentum in this pose... you end up in a heap on the floor, giggling your tits off in frustration rather than soaring & strong!

Momentum - using an external force to move into the shape. In this pose that could be throwing the chest down & kicking the floor away. Muscles are switched off, the movement is quick. The end shape doesn't have the appropriate alignment in terms of the aim of the shape.
Control - using internal force & muscle engagement to get into the shape. Correct muscles are activated and working to hold the pose.
𝗪𝐡𝐲 𝐢𝐬 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐥 𝐛𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫?
Simply, being active and using the correct muscle groups to move in your practice is super safe.
If you are active & engaged, moving with muscles switched on (=controlled way) you are working with your body & getting into the right shape for you.
There's time to explore the activation & small tweaks that really fire up each pose, helping you to get stronger & more mobile.
If your muscles are on & working, you also can't accidentally surpass your range of motion. This means you aren't putting your joints and connective tissue at risk of damage.
If you practice without engagement & use momentum you can end up very easily going past your end range of motion in joints. This can lead to injury due to stretching tissues that aren't designed to stretch.
Also... if you use momentum to throw yourself into a shape, it's a lot more likely you'll fall awkwardly.
Momentum is always easier. Doesn't mean it's right or what's best for your body though!

Ok ok ok last photo with this dress, I promise.... Maybe.... 👀 Side note: doesn’t this photo look a little like something from a random “Visit Oxford” style tourist guide?! I think the bike perfectly positioned just to the left just completely sets the scene... 😂📸
Hey hunnies! Given the current limitations on international travel, we thought we’d share some of our favourite spots in the UK for staycations this summer ☺️ if you haven’t had a chance to read the Windsor blog yet it’s live on the site (link in bio), I’ll be sharing the Henley one next this Friday! ✨ In the meantime, here’s a lil taster below:
1. Hire a boat from @hobbsofhenley - the absolute highlight of the day, we had an incredible time aboard one of their Olympic Class launches. The weather was gloriously sunny, and pottering up and down the river was the perfect way to really experience the essence of a town so centred around boats and life on the water. We mixed our own drinks onboard with their lovely flavoured gin liqueurs - our favourite was the Raspberry & Elderflower gin liqueur mixed with elderflower pressé. Much much more about this on the blog but I genuinely can’t recommend this enough as a date or activity with friends and family. [PR Experience]
2. Head to @spoonhenley to build your own avocado toast for brunch 👀 Spoon is a beautiful independent café with a lovely light and airy aesthetic and floral accents. The cakes here are to die for, all made by the owner (Cindy) herself who received her diploma in cake baking from @peggyporschenofficial ‘s Cake Academy! 🧁 [Complimentary]
3. Drink Pimms by the river at @angelonthebridge - it is the official drink of British summertime after all 😉🍓
Have you guys been on any staycations this summer? We’d love to hear where you’ve visited! 💕
Don’t forget to turn on notifications (in our story) for the Henley blog going live with full details of everything you need to know for your visit! ✨
We really got lucky with this shot! 🤩This street has been on my insta photo shoot location list for the longest time but every time we go it’s jam packed! So in love with all this colour 🤩🤩💗using @presetsbykelsey gold preset 🌻

Medicine making : Decided to make an Oxymel elixir with Lemon Balm, Ginger,Mint,Thyme, Marjoram Leaves, Rosemary,Honey and Apple Cider Vinegar 🌿✨
✨I filled my jar (approx 500ml) about 1/3 full of herbs and then 1 cup of honey and 1 cup ACV.
✨ I will let this sit in a dark place for about 4 weeks to make an immune boosting medicine when strained.
✨This is my first Oxymel which is a combination of herbs,vinegar and honey. This has been around for a long time and used in times of Hippocrates 400 BC , he is the father of medicine and noted as using / making oxymels to help with respiratory problems, difficulty breathing and colds etc and since those time this elixir has been used as an immunity boosting medicine.
