Stress is often part of our modern lifestyle and is definitely a big part of our everyday lives in fast-paced cities like London.

But what if there was a simple way to relieve stress and to center ourselves?

Could observing and imitating the surrounding traffic, greenery and buildings around us through our poses, be the perfect way to…

open our hearts and become grounded like a nearby building;


strengthen through inversions and sway in the wind like a tree;


and find mobility and balance like a passing bus?


It is in awareness that we bring everything to life that lives within us. There is no time like the present to give birth to creativity.
