War On Waste, What We Can Do

Posted in Lifestyle on July 14, 2017

It’s been a long time coming, but today was a big day in Australia because both it’s two giant supermarket chains, Coles and Woolworths, committed to removing single-use plastic bags in the next year. Here, down under, we use 5 billion of them a year. That’s 10 million every single day with only 25 million people. In the States, that number is higher than 100 billion every year. To make them fossil fuels are used and there is the problem that then they don’t break down. We already know, plastic […]

Creating a Self Practice.

Posted in Lifestyle on May 03, 2017

After practising yoga for 15 years I can see clearly how different stages of life require us to bend and be flexible, like in our practice, if we are going to even get to our mat! Where once as a student at university it was easy for me to go to the shala every morning then head to school,  suddenly when the babies came along walking out the door took a whole lot more planning. It could have been easy to put my hands in the air and say “too […]

How Death Got Me To Disconnect To Reconnect

Posted in Lifestyle on February 06, 2017

My screen has been switched off for three months, after death came into my life last year and forced me to disconnect, to reconnect. Within two months, three people in my circle passed away – and I do not claim in any way to feel the same shock or grief as their spouses or children, but with their passing, I was still managed to be knocked off my projectory. And with the force that this universe has, if there was any doubt I was being called elsewhere, ( right back […]

What Small Changes You Can Make To Start Big Shifts

Posted in Lifestyle on November 09, 2016

Just because we don’t want to know about it, or because we close our eyes to it, does that mean we are not supporting acts of cruelty that don’t match up with our value system? What could we do instead? I am certainly not perfect, and in the book I am almost finished, I speak about the challenges that I have faced with living a “cruelty-free” life and continue to learn about. It really is a journey of evolving and since life is messy not linear, we can do our […]

Yin Yoga Teacher, Melanie McLaughlin On Creating Balance In Our Practice and Our Lives

Posted in Health / Lifestyle / People on October 27, 2016

I recently did my yin yoga teacher training with one of the most wonderful woman and teacher I have been lucky to cross paths with. Mel holds space in her yin classes with such feminine serenity, that still manages to be mixed with strength as she subtly guides you through the deeply moving class with her stunning voice. Not only do I love her classes and loved her inspirational and knowledgable training – I love what she is about and I am not the only one… She is the real […]

It’s All In The Attitude; Abundance Over Scarcity

Posted in Lifestyle on September 16, 2016

What is the first thing you think about when you wake up in the morning? Or the thoughts that swim around your mind before you fall asleep? What are the automatic reactions that you have throughout your day, as you incur setbacks or hiccups – as we all do as we travel through life. These moments can be what paints the background of our art piece, that give our life the tone of the overall picture. Often we are not even aware what pallet we are choosing because it is […]

The Unsustainable Cycle of Upgrading; Are You Playing A Part?

Posted in Lifestyle on June 06, 2016

I drive a ten-year old, slightly banged up, Toyota Prius – as does my husband. We bought them together ten years ago as a conscious environmental choice, (I realise there are some debates about the energy it takes to make and dispose of the battery but we still thought they were the best option) and for what they stand for. This was a big move for my husband who is a sports-car lover! Each time over the years we have thought about changing cars and “up-grading” we continuously come back […]

Are You Awake Or Hitting The Snooze Button?

Posted in Lifestyle on February 02, 2016

I strongly feel there is an awakening happening in the collective consciousness right now. Health and wellness is a booming industry, the organic movement is gaining steam swiftly and spiritual teachings are best selling novels and sell-out seminars. I have a positive view that this is a tipping point of a revolution…. There is still cruelty being inflicted around the world in unprecedented amounts to humans, animals and the planet, by powerful companies and people driven by greed, completely ignorant to the connection as a whole. But no great changes […]

The Power Of Conscious Connection and Support

Posted in Lifestyle on January 19, 2016

Each year along this journey of life I am becoming more acutely aware at how important the support networks I surround myself with are and at what magnificent power there is, a magic, when we come together in a space of deep trust and vulnerability and share our highs, our lows and more significantly, everything that makes up the in-between; our raw “humanness”. I have also found that when we are truly sharing, we can resonate and deeply grasp the sense that I AM NOT ALONE. That we are all […]
