A little while ago I came across the charity Share the Dignity after hearing about it on a Mia Freedman podcast. It was really sad to learn about the plight of women who experience domestic violence as well as the many homeless women living in Australia today. It was eye-opening to realise just how much … Continue reading Share the Dignity
It's been a rough night. Just ask Lex. He's not happy. In fact, he's raging... Why? We are babysitting my beautiful cat Chelsea whilst my parents are off exploring Europe! I'm completely happy with this idea as is Chelsea. Although one thing that really annoys Chelsea is when Lex tries to sleep instead of playing … Continue reading It’s been a rough night…
A lot of students at Bloomington Power Yoga have been asking me to recommend a good yoga mat. I have some difficulty making a recommendation because it’s not exactly clear what makes for a good yoga mat. Probably the criteria will vary from person to person, but one thing that has come up a lot is that people want to practice on an eco-friendly mat. Those stinky, toxic, PVC-laden mats from the local sporting goods store are a big no-no for most serious yogis, so I’m going to restrict my recommendations here to eco-friendly mats.

As it turned out there … Continue reading Why I’m currently obsessed with podcasts

It’s difficult to know for sure, but the warmth of summer must surely be just around the corner. And, well, even if it isn’t, there’s a certain purity to be enjoyed when tucking into a light, yet surprisingly hearty, couscous dish such as this. Pomegranate, perhaps to my detriment, isn’t an ingredient I’ve experimented with… via … Continue reading Pomegranate and Lemon Couscous
