As Autumn descends it's natural to feel a drop in mood and energy levels. Scientists believe that Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) / similar issues relate to how our body responds to daylight, diet and less activity. As days get shorter, we want to stay in and we eat more ‘rubbish’ all of which has a negative effect on our wellbeing. But the good news is we can have control over our feelings, the way we move, and what we eat!
We've a couple of spaces left now in our Detox Yoga & Nutrition workshop tomorrow - created by Anja and Stacie to address the transition.
Gain more energy; stimulate toxin removal to promote healing; boost metabolism; improve digestion; lower heart rate; have clearer eyes & skin; improve memory and concentration; and get a better night’s sleep

Struggling to walk 🚶🏼♀️ into the gym? Maybe that membership has been left running for ages, but you haven’t stepped over that threshold in months, or maybe you can’t even face joining a gym!
This used to be me 🙋🏼 I had been out of fitness and exercise for many years and there was no way I was going to just walk into a gym and join up 🚫
I did not have the confidence to do that, and anyway I wouldn’t of had a clue what to do once I was in there 🤷🏼♀️ Does this sound a bit like you?
It can be really scary starting on a fitness journey and that was totally how I felt, scared, unsure and zero self-esteem. Gyms can be these big scary places, with equipment that looks like it belongs in an interrogation unit and lots of REALLY fit people with these eyes 👀 that are judging my every move ❗️ This is obviously what more insecurities were exaggerating and why when I started my journey I didn’t step a foot in the gym to start with 👣
Instead I used community fitness classes with friends and trying to start running with a friend too 🏃🏼♀️ (my friend literally skipping along and me wheezing and puffing!). This is why I love the opportunity that I can now bring to people, being able to workout at home. Having the support, guidance and variety for all abilities 👌🏻 In a confusing and scary place it is nice to have the support and someone to hold your hand and guide you in the right direction. To be there for you when it gets tough and to fire you up 🔥 when you lose your mojo ⭐️ Then one day maybe you will feel you can go into that gym, or maybe you’ll start to love the freedom and time saver of working out at home 😉
Here’s is the thing... I used to be really good at relying on MYSELF. At school and in my career I always had this confidence that if I put in the WORK over a long period of time - I could make shit happen. I would practice my music repertoire like this. I would study for exams this way. I did most things this way. And you know what!? It WORKS! 🙋🏻🎉 I’ll be honest somewhere over the last 7 years as a stay at home mummy I lost that independence. I’m not sure what the trigger was but I found myself more often procrastinating, being indecisive, leaning on others for affirmation. It didn’t feel good, nope, not at all. I’m so glad that eventually the penny dropped, I realised what was happening and decided to do something about it. Because motivation and encouragement.... that has got to come INTERNALLY. Ain’t no one going to DO things for you!
So here’s my takeaway for you; When nobody else celebrates you, celebrate yourself. When nobody else compliments you, compliment yourself. It’s not up to other people to keep you encouraged. Encouragement should come from inside. ✨
