Keeping it real

Overwhelm for Christmas, Anyone?

Back in October I heard a wonderful thing on the radio. The caller told listeners about how the first two letters of November are N and O – as in ‘NO’ – November was the month to say ‘no’ to everything so you don’t end up feeling too overloaded during December. I loved this idea of self-preservation so you maintain an ounce of dignity and elegancy and you don’t fall in an exhausted heap before the natural Christmas pause.
I have thought of that a lot in the past four weeks. And failed miserably Read more to understand how you don’t find balance, you create it, and for a shift in perspective In the flux of Christmas chaos

Let Them Eat Cake

It’s my mum’s birthday this week. But since she has passed away it sadly marks another year without her. But because of this it feels like the perfect week to be hosting a wonderful event to bring motherless women together in the positive spirit of yoga to enjoy class, cuppa and cake. Just as I aim for each yoga practice I teach to be a celebration for my students of their body, mind and spirit, Transform is proud to host a special Sunday afternoon yoga class for women to connect with each other and to recognise and celebrate their own journeys onward since losing their mothers.

While grief and sadness come in different flavours, and while the textures vary though the years, motherless daughters can ‘get’ each other though this instantly deep connection so we’ll have tea and cake and conversation afterwards.

The cake part feels particularly perfect for me as I remember the fabulous birthday cakes my mum

A Fresh Year Has Begun. How Can You Fortify Positive Patterns in Your Life?

A new year can seem to herald a lot of new things, and 2017 is no different. My latest book, The Modern Yoga Bible: The Definitive Guide To Yoga Today is being launched! I was asked by my publisher if I wanted to write another yoga book and, as yoga has moved on so much I thought a follow on from my, The Yoga Bible, would be a good idea. So, coming Feb 14 – how special – the publisher’s chose Valentine’s Day! – is the birth of my new book, The Modern Yoga Bible! You’ll be able to buy it online or at the studio.

LunchBox Tips For Back To School

By Northern Beaches Nutritionist Sue Fisk

People think that as a nutritionist I must have wonderfully healthy children that will eat whatever ‘jam packed with wholesome goodness’ treat I put in front of them. If this was the case I would never have had the calling to make a career change to study nutrition. Believe me – I am very used to dealing with fussy children when it comes to food!

So what are the top 3 ideas
