It can take a bit of time and tuning-in to discover the best position to be in. As a child you did this instinctively; this is the way you used to move before bad postural habits and tension crept in. So in a way you are re-discovering. You are peeling back the layers of tension and stress that have made their imprint on your body for all those years and when you re-discover your own effortless state of optimal alignment it’s as familiar as reconnecting with an old friend.Read More
When you have settled into a pleasant, easy, rhythm, see if you can go a level deeper into your meditation practice by allowing the breath to start and the movement to follow a moment later. Breath first, movement follows right behind. It’s like you become a passive follower of your own, natural, relaxed, rhythm of breathing. This helps switch off your busy ‘thinking’ mind and allows you to dwell in your quieter ‘being’ mind.Read More
As the breath moves out and in through each nostril, it provides a quieting focus. Your nervous system will become deeply calmed, and your mind will turn inward and become steadied for concentration.Read More
Embrace the concept that we can, at any moment, make wiser choices which determine the course of our lives.

I started on this journey because I want a boost, I wanted to add some oomph to my life. The opposite has happened. I’m quieter. I’m compelled to spend more time and energy at home. The work I have to do next, my next stage of adventuring and growth, is me moving deeper inside to the unexplored terrain within the complexities of my own mind. Recognising my power, embracing it, and allowing it to quietly shine out in it’s own time.Read More
My body is amazing. Looks-wise not much has changed. But as I move through my day I feel like Superman. I am wearing a suit. A suit of toned muscles just under my skin, I am cruising through life like a rock star even if you can’t see it on the outside.Read More
Is there anything more appealing than someone who simply exudes quiet confidence?

It’s always a good time to shift a gear. Picking up something very heavy, with awareness, repeatedly … even when it’s really hard, is an excellent way to shift a gear in a very positive trajectory. Deadlifting is the king.
I’m on a personal mission. I need strength. I need to fuel my inner fire. I need to push myself a little more than I think I should have to. I need to strengthen my bones. I need to wear a bikini at Christmas while eating avocados and drinking margaritas. Join me on my five week journey for yogi to dead-lifter.Read More
In my imagination this lady in waiting was always beautiful. Just as beautiful as the Queen or the Princess, but with an edge. This lady would have an aura of patience, of knowing, of calm acceptance; she was just a little smug like the Mona Lisa.Read More
