Welcome to all things (somewhat) RAD!
I'm Rebecca, aka RAD, aka @somewhat_RAD
I am thirty-something London based Brit whose yoga journey quite literally started with a bang after I was hit by a van while cycling to work in 2015. Broken bones and lots of soft tissue damage ensued and months later when I still couldn't lift my arm above my head, I turned to yoga to heal myself. I had never done any form of movement/dance/gymnastics, couldn't touch my toes or do a press-up, and was (am!) working 60+ hours a week at a desk. You can read more about this in my blog series My Yoga Journey.
It's been a slow and at times tough journey, but now I have a consistent and meaningful yoga practice. My asana practice mostly now consisting of self-practice, at home with my cats, in the snippets of time I can carve out in between work (I have a very full time career in the City) and family life, especially since becoming a mother.
After spending the past 5 years sharing my yoga journey online and truly relying on practicing independently to keep yoga as a constant in my crazy busy life, I have written everything I have learned into a book.
The Book of Yoga Self Practice is here to help you CREATE and SUSTAIN your very own fulfilling independent yoga practice.
The book grew out of a series of sold-out workshops I taught to enable people to practice yoga all by themselves. I share my own unique method of flowing creatively without a teacher, creating entire practice of any length with zero planning, and how to stay at and develop your practice over the long term. Because having a yoga practice which consistently fits into my very busy life is what truly changed it. And I can help you find the same.
The book is available at Amazon and all good UK bookshops in both eBook and physical format: the eBook is being released on 23rd July 2020 and the physical book is coming on 20th August 2020. Click below to head to Amazon or across to the Yoga Self Practice website to read some of the rave reviews from the self-published version.
The Instagram Community
In 2018 I founded the Instagram community Yoga Self Practice. I wanted a place where real people practicing their own real yoga could see themselves represented online: all body types, all races, all practice levels, all genders - which was, and sadly still is, sorely lacking online.
