Peanut Butter is everything. It’s savoury and sweet, you can’t really go wrong!
Out in the surf in the beautiful waters of North Stradbroke Island where I spend half my week. Or lounging around with my 2 cats.
A turtle – embracing life at a slower pace, being grounded yet also adaptable to the ebb and flow of life.
Growing up as an athlete and having had a career as a pharmacist back home in New Zealand I had quite an obsession to try and climb the rings of the ladder to get to the top. Since stepping away from that and doing a bit of deep diving into what I really need in my life, I find myself enjoying the slower pace and embracing the journey rather than getting to a particular destination.
There have been so many, it’s hard to pick just the one! I remember one time in my first 200 hour teacher training, I was laying in sweet sweet savasana and my eyes began to water and pour (no, I wasn’t upset or feeling sad!). The combination of the physical, breath and mental practices shifted something in me to precipitate this great release, a momentous shedding of a part of me – like a snake would shed its skin that no longer fit or served its purpose.
Prior to doing my training, yoga was very physical for me but since that experience, I felt first-hand the potency of the practice that spans beyond lengthening and strengthening muscles, it’s a practice that brings us to experience the essence of who we truly are beneath the layers or costumes we wear!
