Good Vibes Founder Nahid on her top beauty buy: "I've been lining my eyes with kohl since I was 12 so I feel totally naked without it. I love Charlotte Tilbury's Rock 'n Kohl eye pencil in bedroom black £19. The texture is really creamy so it slides on easily without dragging, and the colour is so intense, it looks dense with one stroke. As I always like my make up to look a bit slept in, I smudge it a little. Plus, it lasts so long. I only reapply if I've been to a few hot yoga classes or I'm going out at night."

Best for anxiety relief. “Most of us spend our lives in a state of stress and anxiety,” says Nahid de Belgeonne, founder and director of Good Vibes. “In our Restorative Bliss class you are completely supported by props, which activate the parasympathetic nervous system and take you into a state of active rest, diverting oxygen from your overly busy brain into the rest of your organs.” The practice happens in a room heated with FAR infra-red panels, warmed to the temperature of a sunny day, which helps to open and soothe the body and can also help people suffering from SAD. De Belgeonne also teaches one-to-one classes for specific conditions such as fertility issues and eating disorders.

Pose prescription: Put your feet up. “At the end of a stressful working day or after a flight, try putting your legs up the wall. Lie on your back with your sit-bones as close to the wall as is comfortable for you. From there, you extend your legs up the wall, so that the backs of your legs are resting fully against it. This pose regulates blood pressure and is deeply calming for your nervous system so you can go into “rest and digest” mode. Stay here for 10-15 minutes if possible, but even a minute or two will have benefits.”

Since stress elevates Cortisol (which causes the body to retain fat, as well as triggering cravings for sugar), practising mindful and calming yoga is as beneficial to your figure as it is to your brain. Book a restorative weekly class at Good Vibes.
