What is Fascia?
Fascia is a specialised system of the body that has the appearance similar to a spider’s web or the white stuff you find on an orange. Fascia is very densely woven, covering every muscle, bone, nerve, artery and vein, as well as, all of our internal organs. Trauma, inflammatory responses, surgical procedures, and repetitive movement patterns create Myo-fascial restrictions that can produce unbalanced pressure within our bodies and affect our overall posture.
The Winter hibernation encourages us to slow down, go more internal and just live a little quieter. And here I love the Japanese concept of Ma. Ma refers to the interval or gap between structural parts.
Ma is about space. It’s the part where there is nothing. It’s about pausing and taking breaks which so important for all of us.

DON’T put yourself in the position where you have to play catch up with your health. Schedule your sessions for when school starts back. If you don’t diarise it now, you risk losing even more time.

To all those busy ladies out there,
Are you a little like me? Do you find yourself racing to finish everything? (as if ‘everything’ can ever be finished!). Do you naturally tend towards over-ambitious to do lists? (while understanding there is nothing wrong with aiming for goals but sensing acutely how it can squash out the enjoyment of the moment). Are you a bit of a juggler, and do a pretty good job of keeping those balls going round, but then something can happen and they all end up bouncing around your legs?

I couldn’t source the granules so I used a half measure of the powder instead. This is a lovely protein rich snack with just a hint of sweetness. The tahini gives it a nutrient boost. I made a double batch thinking it would last out the week for sprinkling on the kids’ porridge. Well, our home thought it too delicious to last that long. Try it and enjoy!read more
