• My Daily Practice: Yoga

    Daily Practice series – demystifying daily practice with experts sharing their real-life experience in wellness and self-care modalities. 10 years ago I never though I’d be where I am today. I was tired ALL THE TIME. Despite the fatigue, I couldn’t sleep through the night. During the day, my brain felt like mush. I was in University, studying two subjects that I LOVE (classics and psychology), but I couldn’t pay attention in class. In fact, I could barely make the 5 minute walk from my flat to the classroom. I hit a low when the potent sleeping pills I was taking stopped working. Like the other drugs before them, I…

  • Allow Me To Introduce: Aroga Yoga [New Sponsor]

  • Trailblazer Interview: Veronique Gauthier – Integrative Healing for MS

    Veronique started yoga in 2000, at the age of 34, when she was diagnosed with Relapsing-Remitting MS. At the time, she was addicted to the gym.

  • Guide to Painful Periods: Claiming The Power In Your Reproductive Healing

    Listen to your womb, cervix, uterus, ovaries, belly. Do you hear them? They are places of deep power, often neglected, but with such profound lessons to teach. To contribute to your wholeness. To help you heal. So long as you are willing to connect to the parts of yourself that are hurting and listen to what they have to say. Some raw food literature suggests menstruation is the body’s way of detoxing, that if detoxed enough, menstruation will naturally cease. That amenorrhoea due to low weight is actually a sign of raw food and detox success. Our reproductive organs are powerful, dark, creative spaces. So often they are viewed negatively;…

  • Let’s Talk About Self-Worth

    Maybe you aren’t a size 6. Maybe you can’t do downward dog. Maybe you aren’t exactly setting the world alight. Maybe you don’t know who you are, or what your passion is. Maybe brushing your teeth feels like a huge task. Maybe you aren’t earning 6 or 7 or 8 figures like a #boss Maybe your blog isn’t the talk of the town. I don’t care.

It means, I get space on this planet simply by being here, and I don’t need to rush/prove/busy myself…
