Jayne is a a full-time yoga instructor based in Bristol, teaching not only weekly yoga classes and workshops, but also leading yoga retreats throughout the year.

We caught up with her for some quick fire questions.

Yoga is something which became my job after I managed to escape the 9-5 office life!

Now yoga is work, although at the same time it isn’t because I love what I do! I make sure to find balance by making space for myself to just ‘be’ without having to go anywhere or do anything. It’s important to take a break even from yoga and the blogging world!

I started my blog in 2011/2012 as a creative outlet with no desire other than to share what I love and what inspires me with the world.

I love connecting with the blogging and yoga community so getting to meet people in the real world rather than the internet world is always so rewarding. Especially if it is at one of my yoga classes or workshops because that’s what I do best!

I don’t handle stress very well and I am an introvert at heart so any kind of social situation which I don’t have control over always sends me into a panic.

I have recently been approached by Manduka to collaborate with them on a project. I was so excited to get that email. I cannot lie, the best gift I received from brands are all the yoga leggings!
