The Year of Fun #34: Yoga Teacher Training

Oh yes, I will not deny this one is a bit left field. I mean, how often have I mentioned yoga on this blog or podcast, ever? When I told some friends that I was going to be taking a YTT 200 – or a yoga teacher training course that leaves me minimally qualified to […]

The Year of Fun #33: Botanical Illustration Workshop

Last week I had the pleasure of attending a 3 hour workshop on Botanical Illustration with the Yurt Academy.

The Year of Fun #21: Yin Yoga Workshop

Another group activity today, this time: a Yin yoga workshop. Why all the group activities, you might be wondering? After all, isn’t this an INTROVERT’S Year of Fun? It’s true, as an introvert I do value my alone time. Oh boy do I value it. And if I don’t get enough of it, yes, I […]
