Before diving in, you may find it helpful to read my Introduction to the Chakras and posts about the first, second and third chakras. Located in the centre of the chest, the fourth chakra is the ‘bridge’ between the lower chakras which represent our place in the physical world, and the higher chakras which…

  Before diving into this piece, I suggest reading my Introduction to the Chakras and posts about the first and second chakras. The third chakra, known as the solar plexus chakra or manipura, is yellow in colour and located around the area of the stomach. It is responsible for looking after the health of the stomach, liver,…

I suggest reading my Introduction to the Chakras and post about the first chakra before diving into this article! The second chakra (aka. sacral chakra or svadisthana in Sanskrit), is orange in colour and located just below the navel. This chakra is responsible for looking after the health of the body parts located in this area…

If you feel stuck, scattered, burnt out or disconnected, chances are, your first chakra could use a tune-up. (not sure what a chakra is? Check out my Introduction to the Chakras.) Located at the very base of your spine, the first chakra (also known as the base chakra, root chakra or Muladhara in Sanskrit) governs the health…

I was introduced to the chakras many years ago in a yoga class. I was intrigued by the idea that your energy, vibration or frequency is just as important as what you experience physically or emotionally. But I have to admit, it took time and a leap of faith to wrap my rational mind around this…

If you let nutrition take a backseat over the holidays that’s ok.

Over the past three years working as a Personal Trainer in a major gym, I’ve noticed a distinct trend (you probably have too). In January the gym is heaving; old and new members alike are raring to go, there’s a queue to use the machines and I have to get creative about where and how I train clients.  By Easter…

New Year’s Eve has never been my thing. I’m not one for parties, rarely make it to the midnight countdown and think most new year’s resolutions are hollow. It’s been years since I kicked off a new year with a list of (vague, externally-driven) goals. In recent years I’ve replaced resolutions with a carefully-chosen word which…

If you’ve been hanging around these parts for the past few months you’ll know we’re proponents of small changes and micro rituals.  In isolation, these lifestyle hacks appear insignificant.
