Rediscover your best posture as you sit with ease.

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.

Tracing your breath: a meditation .. and a true story!

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.

Recognising my power, embracing it, and allowing it to quietly shine out in it’s own time.

Yogi to weightlifter: one week in

It's time to get strong.

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.
