Strong willed? Living on the edge? Enjoy pushing yourself to extremes? The sea holly (Eryngium maritimum) is your spirit plant. Sea holly is a lil' coastal wildflower, with a hell of a lot of gumption. At this time of year, it's blue umbel blooms have faded. But what it lacks in colour, it more than makes up for by sheer, dog-minded determination. The sea holly copes with sand, salt and winds. It not only copes, it thrives off this life of restriction, pain and suffering. The sea holly has some tough armour. It's spiky bracts have a frosted edge, both anthropomorphically, and literally. The dewy appearance is due to thick layers of wax covering the leaves. This helps the holly to retain vital fresh water, when all around is salt and winds. So if someone's spat sand in your eyes, if someone's left you alone at the edge. Come back with a fight. Get your barbed bracts ready for next time you see them. Sea holly is my spirit plant, and I'm thriving at the edge. . . . . #seaholly #seahollyflower #myalmanacmoment #plantlady #tostandandstare #peninpractice #aseasonalshift #winter #strongminded #merthyrmawrsanddunes #bridgend at Merthyr Mawr Warren National Nature Reserve

Okay. I'll say it. I'm addicted to running. Especially trail running. The rosehips (Rosa pimpinellifolia) are like a family cheering me on...if the family waved spikes... and the family scrammed you... and the family forced you to do high knees because running through the sand isn't difficult enough. Wild hips are in fact the fruit of the rose, in this case, the burnet rose. This perennial is abundant across the sand dunes, and is commonly found along the British coastline. Whilst most hips have fiery red or burnt orange tones, the hip of the burnet rose is a deep vimto shade. It's also one of the thorniest hips out there. This combo of camouflage and spikes forces you into a weird high-knee running style. Not hip at all. I often joke that I run because I'm training for the zombie apocalypse. When that day comes, I'll be using these beauts to survive. Some rose hips have twenty times more vitamin C than oranges. Don't eat them raw though. Otherwise you'll find yourself sprinting to the nearest toilet. Tricks of the trade: if you don't like running, high knees or vitamin C, there is always vodka. Half hips, add sugar, cover with vodka. Shake and leave for a few months. Celebrate any pbs with some burnet rose liquor. . . .

Calling all single ladies. Tired of Tinder? Baffled by Bumble? Get your hazelnuts out on Halloween girls. The Celtic tradition of matchmaking using hazelnuts (Corylus auellana) is a weird one. On the night of Halloween, single ladies would gather a cluster of hazelnuts. Then, they would name each individual nut after a man they desired. After firing, most nuts exploded. The one which remained intact was destined to be your future husband. Whilst I'm no expert in choosing men, I can give guidance on choosing hazelnuts. There are three telling signs, the tricks of the trade: the leaves, the soil and the trunks. The leaves are oval shaped with a short pointed tip. The soil surrounding the tree will be cluttered with the woody shells and green bracts that clasp the cobs. The trunks are traditionally coppiced every 5-7 years, giving the tree a multi-stemmed, shrub like appearance. It took me a whole morning to gather this very small crop of nuts from Wigfach, where hazelnut trees are bountiful. In hindsight, Tinder might be easier. . . . . . #hazelnuts #foraginguk #foraging #myalmanacmoment #hedgerowforaging #autumn_nerds #lovelettertotrees #celtictradition #halloween2018 #halloweentraditions🎃 #wigfach #merthyrmawrsanddunes #singleladiesnight #singleandhappy at Merthyr Mawr Warren National Nature Reserve

"Set on the South Wales coast, Merthyr Mawr Warren National Nature Reserve is home to the highest dune in Wales, known as the Big Dipper. The dune system here is like no other in Wales, partly due to the huge area it covers – it extends to 840 acres (the size of 340 international rugby pitches!)" #merthyrmawrsanddunes #sanddunes #bigdipper #sand #naturalreserve #southwales #uk at Merthyr Mawr Warren National Nature Reserve

Wishing I was on a beach practicing yoga.. feel like i’ve been crazy busy lately and not had a lot of time for my self practice. Self practice is super important. Also really want to arrange a trip to the beach to teach a class and eat picnic food. Anyone feeling that? Hmmmm... 🧘🏻‍♀️☀️🌊 _________________ PC: @craigeffect

I think this was the hardest race I’ve done for a while, I definitely hadn’t done enough trail running in training and wasn’t prepared for the hills and different types of terrain, but I loved it and had some amazing views on the way around, would definitely recommend this race and a nice change from road running #merthyrmawrtrailrunningfestival #runnersofinstagram #trailrunning #running #runningonsand #birthdayrun #toughrun #seethepainonmyface #runs #saturday #welshathletics #wales #merthyrmawr #merthyrmawrsanddunes #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram

Trikonasana or Triangle pose has many benefits, these include strengthening the thighs, knees and ankles. Stretching the hamstrings, calves, shoulders, chest and lengthening the spine. Trikonasana stimulates the abdominal organs and improves digestion. Helps to relieve stress and backache. It is also therapeutic for anxiety. If you have any neck trouble, keep the neck neutral ☺️ this is definitely one of my favourites. 💕🙏🏽 _________________________ PC: @craigeffect 📷

Seriously looking forward to the weekend and to half term. We’re hoping to go away next week from Weds for a short break. Any ideas fellow travel bloggers? Either in Wales / UK or an Easy flight and somewhere the kids would like. In need of some inspiration! This photo is at Merthyr Mawr - one of my favourite places. at Merthyr Mawr Warren National Nature Reserve

So grateful for tonight and for my students and for the space to be open. Planning and teaching six classes to such a fab group of humans, allowing me to learn and grow as a teacher and also a student. Thank you all so much, I felt safe to be myself and I hope that I gave you the opportunity to feel the same. Thank you thank you thank you. Excited to continue teaching and learning and sharing the yoga stuff. 🧘🏻‍♀️🙏🏽💕 Also thankful for @senorita.cherelle for giving me a pep talk earlier because I was about to fall into full on panic mode. Thanks girl. 👊🏽 _________________ PC: @craigeffect 📷

#mylifeismyspiritualpractice and I. Don’t. Know.. I have so much to do and yet procrastinating seems to be all I am doing. Procrastinating because I don’t feel like i’m good enough. Maybe? And I have this anxious/unsettling feeling in my chest that i’m trying to put my finger on what is causing it and I just can’t find answers. Maybe it’s related to the procrastinating. I. Don’t. Effing. Know. But man is it annoying. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It has me literally questioning everything when, do I really need to know the answers to the things i’m questioning right now? Probably not. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Trying my hardest to ride this wave. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thanks @raeeeamieee for the hashtag and for the inspo to be vulnerable. ________________________________ PC: @craigeffect 📷 Thanks for taking this photo which perfectly suits the babbling in my head.

I’ve never really been that good at writing or words for that matter, although I do like to try. I kind of prefer to express myself through actions, or quotes that resonate with me and how i’m feeling at the time.. and then I see comments about how lame it is to post a photo with a quote because it’s meaningless. Maybe to you it’s meaningless, but you don’t really know what those words in that quote mean to someone, or song lyric, and how the person feels when they read it. So let’s not be judgemental and try to be more understanding that not everyone finds it easy to put their feelings into words.. that’s my thoughts anyway. And on that note.. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Trust yourself enough to let go, shift and uproot. Give yourself permission to shed who you used to be. You are allowed to start over and find new ways to bloom into your best self.” @alex_elle ____________________ PC: @craigeffect 📷 at Merthyr Mawr Warren National Nature Reserve

“As we advance in yoga, we clear out our old memories, attitudes, suppositions, preconceptions, blockages, etc., and start to see the world and other people without projecting onto them the old stuff that is really inside our own head. As our perceptions of them change, our thoughts, emotions and behaviour towards them change in a very positive way, and our relationships and contribution to society improve. This is certainly evolvement in action.” Dr Rishi Vivekananda. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is a quote from ‘Practical Yoga Psychology’ by Dr Rishi Vivekananda. Such an interesting read. Highly recommend. It is only the past 12 months that this makes so much sense to me, I would explain why but maybe i’ll save it for another time as I have so much to say about it.. and want more time to continue reading the book rather than expressing my thoughts.. 🌸 ____________________ PC: @craigeffect 📷 at Merthyr Mawr Warren National Nature Reserve
