I've often asked the kids I teach yoga to if they think they can go the whole yoga class without eating? 'Yeah of course I could!' they all brag. 'Do you reckon you could manage going the whole yoga class without taking a...

This is the most open and honest thing I've ever posted. My 2 best friends and husband told me not to go 'public' with this, even though 99.9% of the world have no idea who I am. But if you're a 'clean' eater,...

Yes us British are known for our toilet humour, but I'm genuinely hoping this post may help those with constipation and general digestion issues. In India 18 years ago, I was introduced to the practice of Agni Sara by a yoga guru. I was...

This moving meditation is my basic variation of the classical yoga Sun Salutation flow. It is suitable for 5yrs+ and for even the stiffest of practitioners with a few easy modifications (see 'How To' and videos below). It heats up the body, ...

There is still a misconception that meditating has to take time out of your day, or be boring. Meditating is simply returning your concentration to a point of focus, but that doesn't necessarily mean that you have to be sitting still or that your focus has...

Searching online for some different mindfulness or meditation tools I could use with my clients with ADHD, Autism and special needs, I ended up coming across something that is now one of my own TOP 3 meditation techniques (watch the VIDEO of me using it...

I'm not a big fan of white fish, however it's healthy and my husband randomly bought home a bunch of fillets from the fishmonger last weekend!  Initially I was a little annoyed as I was now forced to come up with a meal that we'd...

I'm getting fed up of backlash and opinionated people in the yoga community, and of the preconceptions and misconceptions of yoga teachers. I'm not even going to get into the bitchiness within the yoga teacher community, ...

There are plenty of other veggies or fruit you can add to this recipe, even herbs or spices. But this is my favourite go-to recipe and it only takes 5 minutes to wack up. It's ridiculously SIMPLE!...

I've finally perfected the paleo carrot cake!  It's golden and lightly crusty on the outside, and wonderfully moist inside.  If like myself, you're not actually grain or dairy intolerant, I advise eating this cake with a cream cheese frosting.  For true Paleo's, I advise using...

Kids easily mistake these raw, paleo and vegan date based energy balls for chocolate truffles!  They're made of 5 organic ingredients and take 15 minutes to make! I've started doubling up on the recipe as I'm having to make a new batch every few days...

There are things you do every day that become part of your weekly routine. Neurologically these everyday tasks become short linked so that you're not wasting unnecessary time and brain energy. For instance, think back to the first time you were ever taught to...

And as a result of the rise of infertility, conventional medicine has made great strides in drugs to induce ovulation, in vitro fertilization, artificial insemination and surgery to correct anatomical problems in men and women. However, studies have now shown that the use of...

Reducing the toxic items that surround our daily life became an obsession of mine when I learned of their relationship to infertility and cancerous tumours. These dangerous synthetic substances can build up in your body, eventually giving you a variety of illnesses. ...

[caption id="attachment_4687" align="aligncenter" width="900"] AGE  APPROPRIATE  CHORES  CHART[/caption] What if there was a way of getting your children to do chores AND get the benefits of mindfulness at the same time?!  Well there is, and the younger you start them, the more benefits you will see...

It has been confirmed by a Swiss doctor that my vision is superhuman!  Besides genetics (although every member of my family wears glasses), I've attributed my spectacular vision to the practice of Bahiranga Trataka.  I was introduced to it at 13 years old and it's...

The buttocks are a mix of large muscles that we're using a lot less of today than we think.  In fact we're spending much more time sitting and relaxing on them then actually working or toning them.  Also against us especially as we age, is...

If the family is feeling a bit disconnected or you think some members need to come back to basics and prioritize, family mindfulness journals are a good way to go about it. Don’t worry there’s actually not a lot of writing involved and ...

Mother's of children on the Autism spectrum have been asking me for this recipe for a few years now, so I've decided to post it for other special needs therapists. I've worked with enough children on the Autism spectrum to admit that at times...

The word 'Mindfulness' has been appearing in the press and social media increasingly in the last few years, even more so since it headlined the cover of Time magazine in February 2014.  It's the buzz word at the moment, which has ruffled some feathers for...

If you've come across this article hoping for a yoga class in which you eat meat, I'm afraid you'll be disappointed.  No, I'm finally broaching the taboo subject of yogis who are not vegetarian.  Gasp! This topic came up on one of the yoga teacher forums...

Most people are rushing about their stressful lives disconnected from themselves, those that matter to them and the present moment. During the time a woman is pregnant, is the best reminder of the love and respect she needs to have for herself, taking in...

I will admit that I am very behind the times and quite stubborn when it come to certain aspects of technology and modernizing.  I did research at the library for my first boss and built a 300 strong VHS library with my ex boyfriend. I...
