What is mindfulness? In its simplest form, it is being aware of our conscious selves and our bodies and being able to be fully aware of our situation and surroundings.

You may have noticed that we like our yoga here at Mystical Mayhem Hippy HQ. The reason that we love it so much is that is has an exponential amount of benefits for both body and mind.

Yoga is a very ancient form of exercise dating back around 5,000 or so years. In fact for many, it is not just an exercise but a way of life.
Yoga is a series of movements or postures (asana) and breathing techniques to boost mental and physical wellbeing by increasing your strength and flexibility.
If anyone would have said to me a year ago that I would soon be signing up for a half marathon I would have most likely scoffed and sworn at them (lots). Do you know what though, they were right!
The benefits to running really are endless. Don’t worry, this isn’t going to be one of those preaching articles telling you that you must run etc . You will either run or you won’t and no amount of people telling you how great it is will change your mind.. I just wanted to spread the word a little bit as running has helped me no end and has become a huge part of my life.
You don’t have to be born a runner or be fit and in shape. Running doesn’t judge and no matter your size or shape, disability or even age you need but to try. All you need to do it stick with it for a few weeks at which point you will be able to run a certain distance without feeling like you want to die 😉
