For anyone that has the pleaseure of knowing me, it soon becomes apparent that I am open minded, diverse, flexible, adaptable and yes of course sometimes a little indecisive...only because I can see the beauty and benefit in doing things differently, non-conformingly (yes there is such a word) and of course with 'random spontanaiety' i.e. making things up as you go along.
If there is one thing I miss about Sydney, of course besides the obvious family and friends gig. It has to be sand running on Bondi Beach.

Its been almost a year now since I started practicing Vinyasa (flow) yoga. What else can I say in a few words, except, “it changed my life”. Physically, I have my body doing things I never thought possible. Emotionally, it help me bridge the gap between mind and body. By this I mean, it helped me to discover stillness, listen to my body .....
I hate the word diet! every time I hear it, it means that I have to cut something out or restrict myself from having something. Within reason this makes sense, especially if your a fan of eating out, fast foods, take aways, snack foods and soft drinks. But more than likely if your reading this post, you are of similar mindset in regards to wellness and therefore nutrition.
