Slow Yoga Flow

Take a moment with your little one, find peace, unwind and bond with our Yoga flow. This sequence has been specially tailored by new mum & yoga instructor Emma Isokivi, together with Heather Burns Yoga to create a slow yoga flow made especially with parents & new mothers in mind.

Yoga can be a great way to relax and gently exercise while bonding with your little one. We spoke to our model & photographer Maria and yoga instructor Emma about their experiences of practicing with their little ones.

Maria says:

“When you become a mother, the world seems to spin faster and sometimes everything seems to be too much and somehow blurry. Yoga can help to slow down again, to breathe, to keep your thoughts together in this crazy circus, called life.”

Emma says:

“My yoga practice now all about supporting my family; my little one, myself and husband. Sometimes he crawls around between my legs, and when he was much smaller he often was in my arms or in a sling during most of my day- whether it be on my mat or walking around. It’s a special time to be connected to your child, wrapped in with you. And a yoga practice is so much more than just postures- it’s a whole life philosophy.”

The Portobello Collection

We look to the British seaside for the sugared tones of our new Portobello Collection: sun, sea & sand are the inspiration for this nostalgic nod to the staycations of our childhoods. The fresh pastel colours of candyfloss, ice lollies & timeless British beach huts combine with airy weaves and specially selected summer yarns, making the Portobello Collection a perfect choice this summer.

There is nothing more reminiscent of British summertime than sandy sandwiches eaten next to pastel toned beach huts and faded fishing boats. This Collection is named after our local beach Portobello; a suburb of the Scottish capital famous for its Georgian & Victorian architecture, as well as its long sandy beaches and wonderfully faded aesthetic.

Any sunny summer day will see hundreds of people flock from the city and surrounding areas to make the most of the weather by paddling in the freezing waters, munching on candyfloss and 99s and maybe having a fish supper by the shore.
