You don’t have to change the world today. The size of the steps you take aren’t a reflection of the size of your goal.

At a time where there is … Continue reading Monthly Musings: June 2020
Isolation There is little doubt that we are all living through very difficult, uncertain and unnerving times. The whole world is gripped by Coronavirus and oddly enough, the world has never felt more connected. This pandemic has crossed barriers, eradicated questions of colour, race, class or social positioning. It can affect anyone at any time, … Continue reading Monthly Musings: April 2020
The breath is pretty powerful – it continues to amaze me just how powerful it can be. Breathing is something we take for granted every moment of every day. We don’t tend to stop for a second to think about the action that is taking place every waking and sleeping moment of our lives. Our … Continue reading Monthly Musings: March 2020
Gut health is the buzz word.

Patience - we have all heard the old adage, patience is a virtue, but more often than not, when we are told that, we are not in the right place to hear it.

Be you. Do you. For you. Love you.

With Autumn in full swing, it is now time we shift our monthly intentions to 'focus' on our new theme: Focus. “We have incredible powers of focus, although we don’t always choose to use them.

September is the month for CONNECTION. “Like the strands of a spider’s web, our lives are intricately connected with the lives of the people around us, whether we know them or not.

August is the month for PATIENCE. “Living mindfully, and enjoying each moment to the fullest, requires patience.

How do we feed and nourish our bodies? In order to achieve a healthy and long-lasting relationship with food we also need to have a positive image of, and about, our body.

From touch down to passport control and to finding … Continue reading A Nourishing Review: Zurich
