The Talbot team are not new to the practice of yoga. Having practiced together for many years (lets face it we do everything together) we have come to love and cherish our time on the mat for many delicious reasons. A few days ago we were lucky enough to be invited to the launch of mind and body studio Happy Melon. Offering yoga, pilates, meditation and group fitness we have signed up to a week of TLC, hot tea and what we found to be the best way to start the day. Having practiced yoga with Marsha in the past we were beyond excited to learn that she teaches at the studio. Through play, laughter and letting go, our morning yoga at Happy Melon has left us wanting more. A little shout out of gratitude for creating a space that focuses on:
Get the mind right, the body will follow.

Why We Choose Yoga
Our lives move at such a fast pace, taking the time, even if its an hour a day to stop and be present is a must (for us) We started yoga many years ago and it remains a priority in our everyday lives.
Yoga Is For Everyone
The idea that you need to be flexible, a certain body type or maintain a certain type of lifestyle is meaningless when you come to the four corners of your mat. We are not yoga teachers, we don’t care to judge our practice or others that we share the space with. Yoga is a practice where all levels can participate together. You don’t need to know how to chant, breathe or stand on your head. The practice embraces all people, all ages, all mindsets.
We love the focus of our practice being strengthening our body from the inside out. Each posture aids and strengthens the muscles around our spine. Posture is a massive issue for both of us and we love how yoga acts as a mirror and highlights the importance of our core. Switching on our core each morning is a gentle reminder that hunched over our computer is not the way we want our spine to be!
- Strength and flexibility
- The power of the breath assists in mental endurance and physical stamina
- Arm and shoulder strength is multiplied as you use your own body weight for resistance.
- Lats and other back muscles begin to support the spine better than before.
- Abdominal and obliques are refined and sharpened through building core muscles.
- Poor and average posture begins to correct itself over time.
- Hip flexors are stretched and rebuilt.
- Glutes, quads, hamstrings, and calves are tightened and lengthened where they need to be.
It also gives us a space to play, everyday!
