There's rarely a simple solution when depression sets it.  Its not as easy as just finding what will make you happy again.  Modifying diet and lifestyle to support the chemistry of both the body and the brain plays a huge part in how we think and feel, however there are 6 distinct ways of thinking that influence how we filter and process our experiences during depression.  These ways of thinking perpetuate the mind body feedback loop, that is, the thinking makes us [...]

I've been a Mother for over 16 years now.  Celebrating the gifts of Motherhood hasn't always been easy, especially when I was being challenged mentally and emotionally with thoughts like - this isn't what I had expected, I'm not good at this!  But after many years and many, many experiences with my kids that left me searching for better ways to be a good Mum, celebrating Motherhood has shifted gear.  Its not about being thanked for folding the t-shirts and making the lunches (although this is an important [...]

The last 5 months of our French sabbatical were spent in the small ski village called Chamonix. Think idyllic picture postcard perfection - snow covered stone chalets surrounded by awe inspiring snow topped mountains. When we arrived back in Australia late April, we were feeling pretty chilled (no pun intended). Whilst I was sad to leave France, I had found my peace with ending this chapter of our lives and I noticed myself feeling very present with being back [...]

I've had a great summer at home in Sydney with the family.  After back to back Autumns and Winters, my body has relished in the warm, hot days with fresh summer fruits and salads.  Its been a wonderful replenishing break with lots of lazy days in the pool, sleeping late, yoga in the rain and learning to surf early in the morning. If you are reading this, I’m guessing its because we met at a yoga class or a nutrition presentation somewhere [...]

  We've been back home in Australia for almost 9 months now... It may have appeared that our adventures ended when we resumed the familiar routine life in Sydney, but nothing could be further from the truth. Things are not as they were.  Since returning, a new chapter of the continuing adventure began.   On the floor in our chalet, twelve months ago, I started to write on each of them, all the challenges I had wrestled with during years of low self esteem, feeling [...]

I've observed so much fear and anxiety since Trump won office on Wednesday.  This came to me yesterday and I wanted to share it with you... Be strong lovely. When your mind wanders towards anxious thoughts of a fearful, imaginary future, catch it. Bring it back. Remember that you create your reality. The wandering mind robs you of this precious, unique moment. See the future as you want it and take action in the direction of that vision. Be curious lovely. See the separation that comes with judgement and [...]

We often come and try yoga because we are feeling stressed out, overwhelmed, run down, depleted, spread too thin, too tense, too uptight, too cranky and, well the list goes on… We want to find balance. What we discover is a new way of feeling that comes with “taking a breath”. We discover a lightness of mind that comes with “letting go”. We discover a new way of living, that comes with “going with the flow”. [...]

I have met three incredible women this month.  Each one of them is inspired to bring to life a dream that is locked deep inside her heart, seemingly impossible, yet waiting to be given life, to grow wings and fly.   It's been a long road for each of them to this point, here and now. They are not incredible because they have reached their goals.  But they will.  What makes them incredible in my mind is their capacity to ask good quality [...]

Last year, my family and I took a sabbatical.  We spent a winter in the French Alps and when the snow melted, we packed up the car with just one small bag each and spent the next 5 months on the road, travelling through Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany, UK, Portugal and Spain. To say that it wasn't a most incredible experience would be lying, but it would be equally untrue to say that it was all smooth sailing.  Arriving in foreign [...]
