Smoothies are a great way of squeezing in all the good stuff in a quick, convenient and very delicious way. This is one of my favourite recipes as it tastes of a warm summer's day.

It's also really nutrit
I love listening to music during my practice and I know how personal the choice is, so I have purposely recorded my videos without music so that you can add in your own sound track depending on how you feel. If you're stuck for ideas, I've created this Spotify playlist that works brilliantly with this term's classes. It's all instrumental, relaxing music that you can listen to any time, not just during your practice. Many of the tracks are connected to our theme of 'Emotions'
