A cup full intention

Why not make your own affirmations with your daily cuppa?

There are so many ways to integrate tea into your yoga practice, whether that’s just a mindful cuppa in the morning or as a nourishing drink after class. Two yoga teachers, Claire Hughes (who used to work for big tea brand Clipper) and Poppy McGrady, are taking it one step further, encouraging their students to create their own affirmations with their tea.

The pair recently hosted a yoga, tea and affirmations workshop at Cafe Mila in Godalming where participants created their own unique tea blend and affirmation to guide them through their practice. The first workshop focused on opening the throat chakra. After setting an affirmation at the beginning (e.g. ‘I speak my truth’ or ‘My voice is heard’) and some heart opening vinyasa, the class was able to mix its own calming or energising tea blend to drink or take home later. Key ingredients for a calming blend might include chamomile, lavender, valerian root and liquorice. For a more uplifting brew think peppermint, rosemary, green tea or lemon balm.
