I love a project and I love to learn. Here’s what I’m currently working on.
A year of independent study
November 2017 – Current
For a year starting 01.11.17, I have decided to study an area that interests me (spiritual and transformational experiences and awakenings) for one year. My curriculum has been created by myself making use of free educational resources online, and lecturers, events and workshops throughout London (and maybe further afield if I feel I need to). The process of learning and creating my own structure is part of the project as well as learning more about my subject of choice.
Etsy shop: Yoga Spirit Art
March 2016 – Current
Inspired after doing a 30 Day Mandala art challenge, my Mum and I, created an Etsy shop where we sell affordable and environmentally friendly yoga and nature inspired art prints. The intention is to provide affordable pieces of art related to yoga and spirituality, that feel special.
Teaching and facilitating yoga and meditation
October 2015 – Current
After training to teach yoga and meditation in both London and India, I now teach yoga and meditation privately throughout London, as well as teaching a gentle flow and meditation class at Yogi Yoga in Wandsworth. Pregnancy yoga classes will be starting in January 2018.
30 Day Challenges
October 2014 – Current
Ever since watching the TED talk Try Something New for 30 Days I’ve tried out a variety of 30 day challenges which I’ve blogged about on my site ranging from drawing every day to learning to play the wooden flute, and writing the draft of an ebook. Some of these 30 day challenges stopped after a month, but some such as the mandala drawing challenge led to longer term projects such as my Etsy shop Yoga Spirit Art.
Meditation podcasts and interviews
November 2013 – Current
Rather than just share my thoughts and experiences, in November 2013, I started a podcast/interview project which involved messaging people who interested me and asking if I could interview them either over Skype or in person if they lived in London. I’d often get up at 3am to have hour long chats with people over Skype where we’d talk about everything related to the idea of the self, Buddhism and how meditation might help ADHD.
January 2013- Current
My website started as a collaborative project with my brother from Van Dog Traveller in December 2012 with the intention of creating a platform to share ideas, thoughts and write articles on areas that interest me: yoga, meditation, art, spirituality and life in general. Today it attracts over 20,000 unique visitors a month and now serves as a space for me to explore and share new thoughts, ideas and projects. Through my site, I’ve travelled to India for 3 months to do my second yoga teacher training, learnt all about the Wim Hof Method which I then became an affiliate for, and have enjoyed writing as a way to figure out my thoughts.
