Looking for a few other ways to keep the cardio up whilst at home? Looking for something a little more high impact than yoga? Then check out this list to see our favourite ways of keeping moving during lockdown.
Keep moving. Keep growing.
Grab a Partner!
Because things are better when we’re together. If you are self isolating with others at home, perhaps a partner or family member, you’re going to want to get them involved on this one. Give this partner home workout a try.
Partner Hip thrusts – Sit your partner across your hips, use the sofa to prop your upper back and shoulders, squeeze the glutes and lift! Pause at the top and squeeze to add extra tension.
Push Up High fives – Do sets of push ups at the same time, between each push up release opposite arms, tap hands and plant the hand back down. Push up again and tap opposite hands. Keep going until you cant go anymore!
Sit up and pass – Lie down face to face with toes touching, completing sit ups whilst passing an object between you. It can be anything from a tin of soup, a toilet roll, your dog, a ball. Use whatever you can get your hands on!
Piggyback squats – Proceed with caution, may cause extreme laughter and a fall to the ground. Having your partner on your back, keeping the back straight and core engaged, see how many squats you can complete.
Do what you can, take precautions but have fun! Laughter is a workout too right?
Dance Like Nobody’s Watching!
Who said workouts had to be boring. Find your favourite playlist of songs, turn it up and dance around your kitchen. Did you know..?

We all have those tins in the cupboard that have been there since the beginning of time. Bought in moments when we promised ourselves we would cook more meals from scratch, but then struggled to ever find the time. Instead of putting more strain on the supermarkets by bulk buying, we encourage you to USE UP WHAT YOU HAVE. Get creative and see what you can put together.
If you need a helping hand we’ve found some recipes using staple, longlife cupboard items you might have lying around.
Tuna and Sundried Tomato Pasta Bake
Serves 6. Prep Time; 10 Minutes. Cook Time; 15 Minutes Ingredients 500g dried rigatoni (or any other short pasta) 2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes 4 thyme sprigs, leaves only 300ml double cream 280g jar sundried tomatoes, drained and quartered 198g can no-added-salt sweetcorn, drained 3 x 120g cans tuna in spring water, drained 100g cheddar grated 50g parmasan grated
Heat the grill to its highest setting and put a large saucepan of salted water on to boil. Tip in the pasta and cook for 1 min less than the pack suggests.
Meanwhile, make the sauce by simmering the tomatoes in a pan with a little seasoning and the thyme for about 5 mins. Pour in the cream, stir and simmer for another 4-5 mins.
Drain the pasta, reserving a little of the cooking water, and tip back into the saucepan. Pour over the creamy tomato sauce, the sundried tomatoes, sweetcorn and tuna. Layer into a baking dish (ours was 22 x 29cm), scattering over the grated cheddar between layers. Sprinkle the Parmesan on top and put under the grill for 5 mins until bubbling and golden.

Tip the tomatoes and bean salad into an ovenproof frying pan or shallow flameproof casserole dish. Simmer for 10 mins, or until reduced. Stir in the spinach and cook for 5 mins more until wilted.
Heat the grill to medium. Make four indentations in the mixture using the back of a spoon, then crack one egg in each. Nestle the ham in the mixture, then grill for 4-5 mins, or until the whites are set and the yolks runny. Serve with rye bread, if you like.

Pour in 600ml vegetable stock or water, and soy sauce. Add the paprika.
Add the pasta and stir to combine.
Reduce heat to medium and simmer for around 7 minutes
Taste and season with salt and pepper
Mix the potato starch and coconut milk and pour mixture in to the pan. Stir and simmer until the sauce thickens.

starting to soften, then add the tikka powder and tomato purée and cook
for a further 1 min.
Add the cauliflower, spinach, chopped tomatoes and vegetable stock
to the pan and increase the heat to high. Cover with a lid, bring to a
boil, then reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 20 mins, until the
cauliflower is tender and the spinach has wilted.

A Chakra is an energy centre, a whirlpool of energy. The knowledge of the chakra system has been known to humans for thousands of years, cultures such as the ancient Egyptians considered the chakras and the glands to be two words describing the same thing. The chakras are wheels of light metaphysically overlaid nerve plexus at various locations of the body, each nerve plexus directs the secretions of the glands of the endocrine system creating chemical reactions within the body. Using the chakra system as a guide it makes it easier to locate the source of specific issues with stress and mental illness.
Think of it as a map to human consciousness and psychological development, the brain is like the software that processes what’s happening in the hardware that is the body. The secretions of the glands are guided by the inner workings of the unconscious mind dealing with mind state, digestion, breathing, and all other autonomic bodily functions. If our energy is flowing smoothly between Chakras, we feel well. If there is a blockage of energy, we can start to feel an inbalance.
What are the Seven Chakras?
Below is each chakra in its English name which refers to where abouts in the body it is located. Its Sanskrit name and associated colour.
Root Chakra / Muladhara / Red
Sacral Chakra / Swadishthana / Orange
Solar Plexus Chakra / Manipura / Yellow
Heart Chakra / Anahata / Green
Throat Chakra / Vishudha / Blue
Third Eye Chakra / Ajna / Indigo
Crown Chakra / Sahasrara / Purple
Root Chakra (Muladhara)
Root means base, so this chakra is located around our tailbone. When this Chakra is balanced it helps us to feel grounded and secure. If you suffer with panic or anxiety, this could be due to an inbalance. A posture to heal and restore energy within this area is a seated thunderbolt position, to reconnect and ground through the earth.
Sacral Chakra (Swadishthana)
Located below the navel, the energy here is responsible for emotions and feelings. A blockage of this chakra can cause anxiety and depression. If the energy is strong within this chakra it promotes life longevity. We can heal this chakra through practicing savasana, childs pose, cobra, cat/cow, bow pose or wheel.
Solar Plexus (Manipura)
This chakra is located at the navel, the energy here provides us with our self belief, confidence and ego energy. Signs of an inbalance in this chakra include digestive issues such as indigestion or constipation. Flowing through a few rounds of Surya Namaskara or Sun Salutations can help to heal this chakra.
Heart Chakra (Anahata)
The heart chakra is the seed of love and love for others. People who struggle with self love and appreciation towards themselves have a blockage within this area. To heal this chakra practicing inversions such as shoulder stand or headstand to increase blood flow will help to take pressure off the heart.
Throat Charkra (Vishudha)
The throat chakra is located within the throat, and it helps our energy to flow upwards towards the crown, linking the lower chakras to the chakras in the head. This chakra is responsible for our self expression, if this is something we struggle with, showing our emotions or speaking our truth, we may have a blockage of the throat. We can heal this chakra through opening postures such as fish pose, plough or camel.
Third Eye Chakra (Ajna)
The third eye chakra is located between the eyebrows. This chakra is responsible for our intelligence, intuition, dreams, imagination and our memories. This is a common focus point during meditation. Do you struggle getting a good nights sleep? This could be down to an inbalance with this chakra. Improve your sleep by working on this chakra through meditation and gazing at a focus point.
Crown Chakra (Sahasrara)
The final of the seven chakras, our crown chakra is in charge of our universal energy, our spiritual and divine wisdom. To clear this chakra and find harmony here, practicing inversions such as headstand or handstand will increase the blood flow and stimulation of this chakra. Living with Self discipline and Social discipline will help this energy to move freely.

Its crazy that in this life, only one thing is guaranteed. That
nothing can stay the same. Everything natural is created to grow,
evolve and to move. Yet change can still be one of the most
overwhelming things we as humans can go through, even though its a part
of us. As soon as we enter the world change is the first thing we
experience, the move from inside to the outside world. As we grow up we
see change in our environment, change in seasons, change in our skills,
interests, personality, change in the people that surround us. We are
taught that we change our clothes for each occasion, change our
hairstyle, change our minds . As we are growing into ourselves we live
for change, always looking for new ways we can reinvent ourselves and
what else we can discover through changing our daily routines. We crave
the excitement and new experiences.
Yet when we get older, its like it gets harder to leave your comfort
zone and change becomes more of a hindrance than an excitement. The
longer you are in a routine for, the harder it is to get out of. Our
brain has learnt that change is inevitable and that it must constantly
learn to adjust and carry on, but yet we still mourn for the life we
could of had. When a situation doesn’t go our way, how we wanted it to
all turn out, part of us still resists. We dig our heels in to the
ground, begging for life to pause for a moment so we can bury our heads
in the memories of what we just lost. The moments that we cant get
back, and the people that were only meant to pass through our story for a
brief period of time. The scariest thing is never knowing whether you
have already experienced the best of something that you can never get
back. Our fears will try to tell us that without what we have lost, we
are less than what we were. Even when we know that it is all connected
as part of a bigger picture, when you cant see the end result its hard
to appreciate all the trials, heartbreaks, false hopes and things that
didn’t work out as part of your journey.
“Change is painful, but nothing is as painful as being stuck somewhere you don’t belong.”
If only it was easy to recognise that we have created new space to move forward, without clinging on to what we have to move past. Everyday we are presented with more choices, opportunities and feelings. Our brain decides which it wants to take, and most of the time our heart is left to suffer. We flow through each part of life recognising that every different level requires us to level up ourselves, we’ve seen it so many times, we’ve felt the hurt, and we’ve celebrated making it out the other side, only for the process to start all over again.
So why is change still so hard for us to grasp as inevitable. Why can we accept it and acknowledge it, but when we experience it every fibre in our body tells us to stop, while only a tiny part of us tells us to go? Why is it so hard to tell if we are running away from something or running towards something? Imagine it to be so simple as to just flow freely through life with open arms, letting go of the past with ease and welcoming the future with an open heart. As easy as inhaling and exhaling. We are more connected with the past than we are with our hope for the future. We are obsessed with being in control, like the way we try to take control of the planet when really the planet is in control of us. To relinquish our control we feel is to relinquish our power. We hold on to anything that brought us comfort as so if we never feel it again, we can always remember the moments where we felt content, before our lives were upturned once more.
What is the true meaning behind yoga? Yoga means unity or union. The ultimate goal of yoga is to establish a relationship with the self, the soul. Manifesting our highest and truest self and living as that person everyday. In the West we mostly focus on the physical side of yoga. We use it to help us lose weight or to tone up or to help improve our flexibility. But there are so many other parts to our yoga practice that we are missing out on. By practicing all aspects of yoga in our daily life and routine, we can live more fulfilling and wholesome lives.
What we can achieve through Yoga.
Change the habits of the mind
Learn to travel within the mind
Remove evils already existing in the mind
In this modern world we are living in, mental health is no joke. Our minds have become our enemies, and we are their slaves. Whatever the mind says, goes, whether its detrimental to our wellbeing or not. Through the practice of yoga we can learn to control our thoughts and our mind, only after this can we see the true nature of everything.
The nature of the human mind
The mind is unstable. It cannot stay focused in one place.
Mind is invisible, we cannot see our own mind
The mind is very fast
The mind always runs after the things it likes, and runs away from the things it dislikes
Mind cannot distinguish between whats real and whats not.
Yoga Science provides us with The Eight Limbs of Yoga to help control our fluctuating minds. Something we can live by and incorporate into our daily routines. If we practice each of the first seven limbs we hope we can reach the last limb, Samadhi and live in the ultimate state of bliss. But what does it take to get there?
The Eight Limbs of Yoga
Yama – Social Discipline There are five social disciplines we should follow through the practice of yoga. These are; Non violence, reacting to any situation with non violence is our weapon. It helps in purifying the heart and mind. Truthfulness, our true nature is within truth, lies are adopted qualities that are not our own. Non stealing, stealing is witholding something that doesnt belong to you. The nature of the human mind is to desire what others have. Within the process of stealing there is a fight between divine consciousness and our mind consciousness. Sexual Continence, this means to be in control of our desires and not let our desires rule over us. And non posessiveness, this means to only keep and live with the things that add importance or value to our lives. Incorporating these ways of living into our lives even a little can help us on the way to becoming our higher self.
Niyama – Self Discipline There are five self disciplines we should try to live by. These are purity, we often focus on purification of the outer body, but forget about the inside. We can make our mind pure through meditation. Contentment, yoga teaches us to live in society and how to live alone. Being happy with what you have now. Contentment is the control of desires. Endurance, our selfless service doing good for others without any expectation in return. Self study, this is purity of the mind and the softening of the heart. There are two types of self study, going deeper within yourself and outside learning. Complete faith in God, this doesnt mean faith or religion, this is our faith in the divine consciousness.
Asana – Physical Posture Asana originally meant to be in a seated position which is firm but relaxed or steady and comfortable. A posture which we could work on to become used to staying seated through long periods of meditation, this was the goal. Only later did it become a more physical practice based around more dynamic moving postures and stretches. In the West this is the main part of yoga we focus on above all others.
Pranayama – Control of Breath Pranayama is the movement of Prana or energy throughout the body. Prana is our life force, it moves in and out of our body with each inhale and exhale. Only with the breath can we learn to control the mind. We do the various asana postures so that our prana can flow with ease into all areas of our body. Breathing techniques can be added into your practice or meditation, to bring a moment of calm into your day.
Pratayahara – Control of Senses Pratayahara is our withdrawal from the senses. You might of come across the term in your yoga class when the teacher tells you to close down your eyes. This is to take your attention from observing outside distractions and to return the focus within. Our senses are our minds best friend, as the mind is fed by the senses. Where the senses go the mind will follow. The more we try to withdraw from our senses the more we can learn to trust ourselves and our instincts.
Dharna – Concentration These last three limbs are the foundation from which yoga science is built. Concentration means the engaging of the mind on a particular area or point. This is something we must practice to improve at. As we practice more we train the mind to become more concentrated. The concentration becomes fixed, the mind is not moving. This improves our inner and outer focus, allowing us to become more in tune. This is then meditation, which leads us into the next limb.
Dhyana – Meditation Meditation is the continuous and unbroken flow of intense concentration of the mind. We meditate to learn how to make our mind obey us instead of us obeying our mind. Meditation is an important stage in calming and controlling the mind.
Samadhi – Realization Samadhi is the ultimate realization, the complete concentration of the mind into bliss. Becoming the highest version of ourself through the practice of yoga.
One of our favourite acts of self care is treating ourselves to dining out every now and then. Is there anything better than a Sunday morning brunch? We believe food is a major part of our overall health and wellbeing, afterall we are what we eat, so they say!
There is a lot of speculation about following certain diets to benefit our health and our planet, and we can all afford to be a little more educated and conscious when making decisions about what we eat. Afterall the food we put into our bodies is our fuel, our energy, it can effect our mood, our skin, and our health. So we want to makesure we are filling ourselves with the best possible options to support our daily life right?
We are not here to preach about what you should and shouldn’t eat, everything in moderation, and balancing the good with the not so good is okay every now and then. So whichever type of lifestyle you choose to follow whether you eat meat, vegetarian, flexitarian, vegan or gluten free, find the foods which make you feel GOOD and support your wellbeing. THATS what we are about.
We have compiled a list of a few of our favourite healthy food eateries in the area. Tried, tested and loved by us and our Studio community!

Its perfect if your in a rush for lunch, you can call up and pre order your food and collect it when you are ready. Freshly prepared, healthy and tasty! They have a great selection of vegan/vegetarian options, as well as low fat meat options such as turkey and salmon. We love the falafel and the chicken wraps, super filling and nutritious, they are a studio favourite. You can also sit in and enjoy the American diner style feel to the round glass restaurant.
Wild and Wild is a completely plant based cafe located on the main high street in Congleton. If you want to try going vegan but dont know where to start, Wild and Wild has a great menu of foods not too far from your familiar favourites.

A little further out but this beautiful eatery is worth travelling out to. Like us The Garden embodies GROWTH, (check out their beautiful GROW wall design just on the right as you walk in!) The perfect spot to go and meet with friends, work from your laptop or try one of the delicious food options. A health food café and juicery, with a largely plant based menu, created around seasonal produce and monthly specials. They have the BEST selection of fresh juices and smoothies, perfect if your looking for a health boost. My favourite is the Green Peace smoothie, containing apple, spinach, kale, parsley, cucumber, avocado, spirulina and wheatgrass. All that green goodness and it tastes amazing!
Looking for brunch? Build your own! Start from scratch and build your brunch the way you want it with great vegan and non vegan options! But that’s not all, this great place in Wilmslow will see you through from morning till evening with a great dinner menu, and of course a bar! They also have local music acts on every Thursday from 8pm onwards, a great way to spend an evening and support some local talent! A great lively atmosphere, our Studio front of house team went to enjoy a catch up over brunch here. We recommend the Posh Beans as part of your breakfast, vegan and gluten free and definitely a step up from your average Heinz baked beans. You’ll see what we mean..
Have you had chance to go and check out this new place that’s opened in the heart of Knutsford town centre? We think its just what Knutsford needs, open all day with a choice of breakfast, lunch and dinner perfect for any time of day. And they have a seperate menu for all you plant based lovers out there. Plus you might spot our lovely instructor Alicia there, make sure to grab one of her freshly made juices for sale there!

During the day the focus will be to create and integrate an afternoon of yoga practices that nourish your mind, body and soul on every level.
The Reset Yoga Workshop combines together the 8 limbs of yoga in the stunning setting of the Cheshire countryside. First we start with a mindfulness and pranayama practice, calming and relaxing the mind. But then we kickstart the second practice with a dynamic yoga practice to detoxify our systems.
After that we’ll relax and cleanse mind and body with a soothing gong bath meditation, followed by a peaceful and restorative yin practice. This will help to align our bodies and open up the connective tissue. Most importantly, to finish the day we will venture into Alderley Edge for a healthy evening meal at The Botanist.
