Yin and gin: melt into the season

We can’t quite believe it, but we’re officially announcing our first event together!

Over the past year, Tiff and I have spent many hours imagining many different events that we would love to put on, but we wanted our first event to be super-special and truly reflect who we are. After our yin teacher training this summer, it was suddenly obvious: Yin and Gin had to be the way forward. Some planets aligned and we found the perfect venue, then the perfect date (we’ve not both been in Bristol on the same weekend for as far back as we can remember!) and here we are. So, drum roll please…

Yin and Gin

Melt into the new season with a grounding yin yoga class, followed by a gin cocktail, in a beautiful secret bar filled with fairy lights and candles.

3-5pm, Sunday 7th October
The Lost & Found, Queens Road
£20 (includes a 90 minute yin session and one gin (or non-alcoholic) cocktail of choice)
Email startingoutsomewhere@gmail.com to sign up and purchase your ticket.


We can’t wait to see as many of you as possible there, but tickets are limited so let us know as soon as you’re in…or yin. Yes, there will be puns.

  • comfy clothes you can relax in
  • your favourite blanket (if you have one, we will also have plenty of blankets to make sure you can feel nice and comfortable)
  • we will provide bolsters, blankets and eye pillows

Or questioned, ‘why will my hips not open!’; or my personal favourite – ‘Why is that bit of me in the way? How can I move it??’. On the flipside, we’ve also all had those times where we want to scream, “Look everyone! I ACTUALLY did it!” when all of the aforementioned struggling and hours of practise have finally paid off.

Run series: channelling your inner Road Runner

I’m not a natural runner. I remember that there was only one cross-country race at school where I managed to not collapse in a heap after I’d finished, and after that my memories of running were mostly centred around pain, exhaustion and a whole lot of sweat. But a couple of years ago, I decided I wanted to run.

Easing into winter exercise

Don’t get me wrong – I love to start my week with an energetic sweaty gym sesh. Usually, on a Monday morning, you’ll find me speeding to the gym, full of plans for the coming week of workouts and ready to get pumped after some weekend chilling. But this year, as winter descended, I realised that although a routine is great, it doesn’t always work. In fact, for me, it only works about a third of the time. Let me break it down.
