  • Walking, How Underated? Part 2

    The thing about walking is you can’t wander back into the gym, jump onto a treadmill and zone out for the next 60 minutes and expect the weight to see major results.

  • Walking, How Underated? Part 1

    Experts say walking is often unfairly dismissed as a pointless exercise. As it turns out, if you share that opinion then you may be missing out on an extremely effective physical activity, not to mention a mental boost.

Here at Wave Sport & Fitness and Wave Yoga, we see it as an opportunity to give thanks to the women at the forefront of our yoga practice. Through the growth of Wave Yoga Bristol, we will continue to facilitate the empowerment of women through yoga.
  • Getting Fit At Home

    Your diet is the most important thing when it comes to losing weight and getting in shape. There are loads of theories out there, but “Pareto's Law” (The 80:20 Rule ) pretty much sums it up, the larger proportion going to diet and the remainder exercise.

  • 5 Ways to Practice Mindfulness

    Practicing mindfulness in itself is very simple – it’s about letting go rather more than anything else – the hard part is being consistent, regularly finding the time. Why not try out some of the following suggestions for yourself? All we ask is that you reserve judgment until you’ve given some of the tools a try for at least 3 weeks.
  • Thoughts That Sabotage Your New Year’s Weight-Loss Goals

    Those of us familiar with deadlines at work, understand the importance of setting goals to achieve objectives. The same applies to weight loss and arguably in January we all tend to jump on the New Years Resolution wagon and set ourselves the task of losing weight and improving our nutrition habits. Both of which are really important first steps in the journey to getting healthier. However, it’s really important to note that setting the goal is the easy part, sticking to it is the challenging part.
