After my appearance Fashions Finest modelling for Peter Twiss at I really enjoyed the opportunity to attend an event also organised by Fashions Finest.  The contest was very nice and I enjoyed the evening accompanied by designer Peter Twiss. It was a great opportunity to see some wonderful designs judged by celebrity and fashion photographer and judge on Britain’s Next Top Model Nicky Johnstone, Bernard Connelly, Nicky Hamilton-Jones and Lola Royale and also to listen to Sam Lavery singing to close the event.

Aircraft

People are often curious as to how I travel on a plane.  This video gives you a little insight into how I get to my seat and how I get to the toilet on board.

I love to travel and share my experiences.  I learn so much by visiting new places and meeting people from different cultures.
There has been a lot of publicity about the challenges of disabled people travelling in the UK but the increased awareness will only help improve the services offered to disabled travellers.
I hope you take the opportunity to go out and explore the world.

My Amazing Experience with AcroYoga & Why You Should Try It!

My Amazing Experience with AcroYoga & Why You Should Try It!

Many people assume that being disabled means you are limited to what you can do, but let me tell you, the world is still your oyster. You can do whatever you put your mind to, and when you do put your mind to something, you’ll realise that you can achieve way more than you anticipate. Now, recently I’ve started taking AcroYoga classes to challenge myself, go beyond my potential and leave my comfort zone – I strongly urge you to do the same.

For those that don’t know, AcroYoga is essentially a wonderful harmony between partner acrobatics, Yoga and Thai massage. It involves a base person (on the ground), a flyer (off the ground), and a spotter (standing to ensure safety). I’ve currently had four sessions, and it’s very demanding; I have no feeling in my right leg, and can only move my left leg slightly, but that allows me to push myself even further.samanta bullock acroyoga disabled yoga

Moreover, AcroYoga is designed to build trust, but I’ve also found that it requires communication, love, care and effort between both partners. Personally, I attend classes with my husband, but if you want to go solo, then you’ll be able to meet new people, develop friendships, and find a friendly partner within the group.

Alongside having a spotter there to protect you, it’s best not to take any extreme risks that could result in injury. However, luckily there’s padded flooring which will soften the blow if you did fall, so there’s no need to worry.

Long talks – Love

Of course, having been just four times, I haven’t attempted any wild positions just yet, but just doing the basic ones is fantastic – it’s a brilliant feeling when you prove to yourself that you can do something that you once thought was impossible.

Although, I’m sure that we’ll start to incorporate more advanced moves as time goes on. It’s amazing to have that trust with your partner and witness the improvement in both of you each class. In my experience so far, my strength, balance, flexibility and mindset has evolved drastically, which is why I rate AcroYoga so highly. In combination with the massage aspect of it, it just makes you feel great for hours afterwards.

Ultimately, it’s a fun activity that everyone can get involved with, no matter what your circumstance. It will enhance physical, mental and interpersonal skills, but the main thing is that you’ll reach new heights as a person. Like I’ve already touched on, you never know what you can achieve in life, so just give it a try!
