Tapping + unblocking your blocks

by anjayoga

Being self employed and working for one self can bring up plenty of self doubt and challenges. It is also very rewarding. As yoga teachers we love what we are doing. This is why we do it. Very few yoga teachers earn what you could easily earn in a “normal” job. But it can also […]

Niyama Yoga leggings staying bright – and stays on

by anjayoga

Inside the Changing Room at home (and out-and-about) with Niyama I was recently introduced to a new brand of yoga outfits. They specifically create some absolutely amazing yoga legging designs.
