5 of the best yoga poses for tight hamstrings.

By Dublin, Ireland, Meditation, Mindfulness, Motivational, Teachers, Wellbeing, Yoga, YogaHub

‘I’m not flexible enough to do yoga’ is something I hear all the time (mostly from my dad), and honestly? That’s like saying ‘I’m too sick to go to the doctor’! It doesn’t matter how flexible you are when you step on to your yoga mat. What matters is that yoga can help you to build flexibility over time – especially in our pesky hamstrings.

I think I am the only human being in the whole of the world who is not in love with sweet potatoes.. It’s not that I don’t like them, it’s just I don’t think they’re any better than a good old rooster.

And of course classic risotto is laced with butter, cheese and oil, not the healthiest and not for vegans for sure. This recipe is for a really tasty risotto that you can make and serve for dinner, everyone will like it even non-vegans 😉 This is not the traditional way to make a risotto, this simply my Sunday evening improvisation when I want…
