Stick your feet up on a chair or curl up in your cozy reading nook, grab a big mug of your favourite warm drink, and settle in for the afternoon.

The cafe is a place where you can find reading recommendations, funny youtube videos, relax, restore, and ruminate on everything in your life that has gone wrong  rejuvenate.

I have a love affair with cafes. They're places that fuel creativity for me. Whether it's spending an afternoon working on a new project to the background of espresso machines or reading a new book with rain pounding on the windows, cafes give me a space to work, to relax, and to meet new people while I'm travelling.

I hope to capture that spirit in this virtual cafe, so if you want to grab a cuppa and chat about travel, mindfulness, yoga, or something else, send me an email at!

Now place your order and choose your entertainment...

So here are some fun yoga videos, posts, and quizzes to help you unwind from the fight.
