Namaste Bitches, Love From Gatwick Airport

‘Rise and Shine! It’s 3.45am and you’ve got a flight to catch!’ Is what my alarm was

My 4AM excited face featuring my yoga mat

basically saying as it trilled loudly in my face this morning. Normally I’m getting home at that time, not waking up! BUT, even though I’ve only had roughly about an hour and half broken sleep, I’ve got a totally disgusting cold and I have massive panda eyes going on rn because I forgot to take my make up off, I couldn’t be more excited!

It’s 6am and I’m sitting on my own at Gatwick airport (again… somehow I manage to do a lot of lone travelling, which is a surprise because I’m definitely a people person) and going over my itinerary for the upcoming week. Boy will it be exhausting but I think I’m going to love every minute of it.

I’m heading to a secluded Island in Sweden where I’ll be resident massage therapist at the Scandoir Yoga Retreat! How exciting! The retreats are run by a lovely Swedish yogi called Minna; this retreat will be taught by Marcus Veda who is HUGE in the yoga world, the retreat sold out within days!

The week consists of two, hour and a half yoga sessions a day, Rocket yoga in the morning and restorative yoga in the evening (I’m going to be namaste AF by the end, I’m sure of it!). We are to be fed 3 deliciously healthy, everything-free-except-taste meals a day cooked by the lovely Kimberly Parsons, owner and founder of The Retreat Cafe! (I’ll give you a heads up now, I will be posting every single meal on my Instagram).

When I’m not eating of yoga-ing I’ll be massaging the guests on the retreat. Approx 5 hours a day – (I’ve pre-empted how exhausted I’ll be by the end of the week so have book a post-working holiday, holiday.) But I’ll still have time to join in on the other fun things available, like Kayaking, a day trip excursion and super relaxing saunas!


This week will be a challenge for me, I love yoga but I really need to focus on turning off my mind and being present during my session (often I’m thinking about what I’m gonna eat after my class or did I turn my straighteners off) so hopefully I will learn an incredible amount.

I’ll keep you posted of the weeks goings on so watch this space!

TTFN – my flight is about to leave!

NAMASTE BITCHES xx

P.S – is it just me that doesn’t understand the type of people that dress up to get on aeroplanes? There’s me rocking a baggy jumper, french plaits, yoga leggings and panda eyes – comfort over style ANY day.
