• MY INSTAGRAM • I get a lot - and I mean a lot - of messages saying ‘I love your yoga instagram’ account. Which a) thank you for these super kind words however b)..... . I think I need to just set the record straight. Yoga plays a HUGE part in my life - from a) helping me re-discover my true authentic self to b) making me feel energised, light, happy, grounded and well, overall good about myself and so because of that - and all my yoga training in the past (and present)..... . I DID create a yoga and wellbeing account @wholeselfyoga where you can find..... 💫 all my blogs posts every single Tuesday (last Tuesday’s blog post was ‘5 Ways Yoga Teacher Training Changed My Life’); 💫information on my upcoming retreats at @mapperton_estate 💫recipes and bits of excerpts from my 4 Wellbeing books 💫my 200-Hour Teacher Training 💫my Mandala & Mentoring Course and 💫my ‘just about to launch’ 15-Hour YACEP ‘Build Your Yoga Brand’ online course. So please do follow @wholeselfyoga for all of the above.👆🏻 . BUT this account here is just me and little bits about me - what I like, what I do, what I’m passionate about, of course there’s yoga (b/c obv that plays a huge part in my life), and bits of this and that - that have inspired and motivated me - to share here with you all. . So, the answer is No, this isn’t a yoga account or a wellbeing account or a healthy food account - it’s an account that has those elements because they play a huge part in my life but it’s also just an account of me drinking a beer 🍺 once and a while, embarrassing my kids, trying to get into that press handstand (and falling), and some TV stuff (yes more of that to come this week) And that’s it really. 😐😅 . So, I’ll see you back here for all of the stuff above - mostly light-hearted but definitely just the real me. xx Julie 📷: @moligophotography

I’ve noticed recently here on the Instagram

• SUPPORT, DON’T SHAME • I’ve noticed recently here on the Instagram feed a lot of calling out - a lot of shaming. Shaming if you’re a democrat or a republican - a remainer or a brexiter - even as far as shaming if you don’t like a certain persons feed, a certain business or even a certain yoga studio. 🤷🏼‍♀️ . I have 4 kids - I don’t always agree with what they have to say 🙉 BUT…. I don’t shame them for it. I support their opinion because Opinions are GOOD! But shaming is NOT in my book. Have an opinion and support your democrat or republican, support your view on Brexit, support your people on Instagram, support the yoga studios you like - but don’t go shaming the ones you don’t like. . I want to teach my children that in life and here on this platform - opinions are needed, opinions are thought provoking - please have one! -but be mindful not to shame those who don’t have the same opinion as yours. And that’s it from me. . I shall now return to my light hearted, every day posts that make me smile and I hope they make you smile too. xxJulie 😁

• FOR LATER • #tbt in the Isle of Wight circa Feb 2018 with @lizearlebeautyco ..... but guess what?!? ➡️ I’m back in hair and make up 💄 later today with @kerryseptember 🙌🏻 as I’ll be on @qvcuk for @lizearlebeautyco tonight with my gal pal @calizearle talking all things skin care and the best holiday gifts! Yes, Christmas is coming!! 🎄 . But in the meantime, my real morning consisted of finding last minute cover for my yoga class this morning (thank you @gabriellaespinosa3 ) 🙏🏻 so that I could stay home with my unwell 12 year old. Calling my husband down at @mapperton_estate to come back to London earlier today so that our 12 year old wouldn’t be a second without one of us here. And packing up as I’m heading off tonight on a flight ✈️ - far far away - to headline a huge yoga festival this weekend - stay tuned for details later today! And now back to my reality xxJulie 🤒

Thank you to all 18 amazing women - from the bottom of my heart - who came and shared this with me. 🙏🏻 .

• EVERYONE CAN TRIYOGA • My home away from home. My second family. Honoured in every way to be a part of this @triyogauk film. 💜My voice alway gets a bit shaky when I talk about what teaching and or practicing at @triyogauk means to me. This is my second family - and I tell you why in this snippet here - full film launching 12th Nov. Follow @triyogauk to see it all unfold. xxJulie 💜
