THANK YOU NOTTINGHAM! We had the most fun and got a standing ovation! Now we are having a curry and, judging by the photos on the wall, following in the footsteps of the greats. Congratulations to tonight's queen, whose four year-old recently announced she was vegan. She is now served "vegan" lamb and chicken, which miraculously tastes just like the real thing. Love it here. We'll be back x #nottingham#curry#goodtimes

**Random Find** If I told you this smoked haddock & creme fraiche omelettes was from a garden centre restaurant, would you believe me?! Enjoyed this tasty plateful at @bluediamondgardencentres East Bridgford 😋
Loved Edgar Stringer's teaching at the #NOTIY workshop yesterday, and feeling its effects in my body today. Here I am demonstrating how to lift the shoulder-blades in #Sirsasana and why a blanket under the head is used to maintain this shoulder-blade lift and to have the correct angle of the arms. #Iyengaryoga#Iyengar#yoga#Nottingham

Another great few weeks for us. We have started releasing a few new products recently which have landed really well with our supporters. All of our Hoodie and weekend orders have been packed up and will be sent out tomorrow 💥
Massage can help make pain more manageable. This is possible because of the remarkable capacity of our nervous-system to turn-down the intensity of pain we experience. Something profound happens when we are touched. There are many complex effects in both brain and body that contribute to that magical feeling of relaxation and rejuvenation that occur after you have had a massage.
By adding sensory input to our nervous-system, it has a chance to change its output or, in other words, decrease pain intensity. A perfect example of this is when you bump your shin and it hurts until you start rubbing it. This is kind of like the brain receiving competing messages simultaneously but can only hear the loudest one.(Of course, receiving a massage is a lot more complex than that)
Something less obvious, is the effect of massage on how we move. It makes sense that when our pain becomes more manageable, our movement becomes easier, leading to increased confidence and resilience. This means getting back to the activities we love to do, making us happy and decreasing stress. And less stress will have a positive effect on almost everything in our lives.

A visit to the caves under the Nottingham city. This particular one sits right under the Broadmarsh Shopping Centre. Found it educational and I always love these sort of adventures! Plus, we got to put on cool helmets that seem like they were made for us! Thanks @yantiseelalahi for your tripod and wonderful pics of us and @chains_and_daffodils for bringing us here! 👩🏻🚒👩🏼🚒👩🏼🚒😄😊#nottinghamcaves#tigguocobauc#nottingham#england#uk
Today we spent a good few hours at Magna Science Adventure Centre.
It is located inside a former steel mill, the structure is absolutely massive! It looks huge outside but it was even more mind blowing inside. The Center’s main exhibits are centred around 4 elements: Earth, Fire, Air and Water. 4 pavilions have many interactive displays and few amazing showcases including fire tornado, rain and display of how the mill manufactured steel.
It was such enriching educational and most important fun day that kids already talking about next time.
There is also impressive playground outside but since it was raining we didn’t have chance to go but I am sure it won’t be long before we will go back.
Day tickets can be upgraded to annual tickets free of charge. ————————————
Street work is something I've always wanted to crack... portraits are great but sometimes you need something a little different, I took this around Christmas last year the market was here. Ive never brought anything from the market just love the photo opportunities. 🌉
