finding my true north – Wanderlust

Isn’t it wonderful when something completely out of the ordinary happens?

I just won a ticket to Wanderlust!!

For those that aren’t aware the Wanderlust events are:

“A one-of-a-kind festival bringing together the world’s leading yoga teachers, top musical acts and DJs, renowned speakers, top chefs and wine makers, and much, much more — all in a setting of breathtaking natural beauty.”

Check out this wicked little video package of last years Wanderlust here in Whistler. It certainly wet my appetite for what’s to come!

I couldn’t believe my eyes when i opened up the email, I thought have they got this right? I hadn’t even entered a competition! No it was right. Just another example of why I work for the best company in the world – lululemon athletica. Surprising and delighting with a beautiful gift, expecting nothing in return. (Turns out some of my colleagues got a free pass too which makes it even sweeter to share the experience with my beautiful team! yay!).

Wanderlust has been something I’ve viewed from a far in awe. It’s not yet in Australia, and I would see videos, images, and hear amazing stories from this far away festival, it all sounded too good to be true. I can only imagine the sense of community formed by so many people gathering together all just wanting to connect, to love, to grow and to practice together.

It has been a crazy busy couple of weeks for me, lots of travelling to the city for work, late nights, early starts, long journeys. I’m looking forward to stopping to pause. Stopping the busy-ness to re-connect to nature, to my breath, and to my spirit which always shines brighter after practicing.

My formula is pretty simple:

NATURE  +  YOGA  =  BLISS  : )

It’s time to hit the re-boot button and refresh my soul.

I have signed up to three of the most renowned international yogis – Seane Corn, Ryan Leier and Eoin Finn. What a blissful day it will be. I have had the pleasure of meeting Ryan and Eoin previously, they are two of the most beautiful human beings I’ve come across. If they are a small taste of the clientele this weekend, it’s going to be an incredible festival.

I am full of gratitude for this opportunity.

I look forward to filling you in on my wonderful Wanderlust experience.

If anyone needs me tomorrow, I’ll be on my mat.

namaste.

your body is your temple

Travelling is one of my biggest passions. I love the adventure that it brings as I journey into the unknown. Exploring new landscapes, cultures, and culinary delights. However eating healthy fresh food while away from home is a constant struggle. One that I experienced on my recent trip.

Your body is a temple. When I treat my body with the reverence of a temple, the results are abundant. I feel alert, light and energetic. Similarly, when I treat it like a garbage disposal, the results are also abundant! A cloudy mind, lacking energy and feeling heavy.

My travel offering to my temple consisted of – wine, gluten (which I’m slightly allergic too) and indulgent meals.

Don’t get me wrong, experimenting with great food while travelling is one of my favourite things. Life is too short to deny ourselves. But I am now more in tune with my body than ever before. I know what works for me, and also what doesn’t.

So now that I’m home, I’m going to make a different offering to my temple. A much greener one.

GREEN SMOOTHIE TO THE RESCUE!!!! (Wearing a super-hero cape. Seriously)

I’ve been drinking green smoothie’s for the last few years now, and I go through major withdrawals without them!

I was first introduced to this liquid gold by an incredible raw food chef Kemi Nekvapkil, owner of Kemi’s Raw Kitchen. Kemi creates some of the most delicious raw food I’ve ever wrapped my mouth around.

Green smoothies are a true love of mine. They improve my digestion, make me feel vibrant, brighter eyed, and energetic.

GREEN SMOOTHIE RECIPE

Ingredients:

1 banana (or 2 if you want it creamier)

1 kiwi

2 handfuls of spinach (or kale, or bok-choy)

1 orange

1 handful of berries (blueberries are highest in anti-oxidants)

optional – chia seeds, spiralina, ginger, celery, beets, almond milk, cacao nibs, goji berries . . (as you can see, the options are endless!)

Method:

Throw these in a blender, cover with water (or my personal favourite – coconut water) and blend until liquified. Voila!

Slam it down for breakie, take it in a flask to work, or store in the fridge for the family (it will last a couple of days).

I guarantee you, your body will thank you for the offering.

Cheers!

#lovewins #loveislove #marriageequality #rainbowlove I’ve been on the hunt for a new coach for a few months now. I was researching, asking around, checking out websites, bios & testimonials. Nothing jumped at me to be honest & I started to wonder if it was just me procrastinating or making excuses not to get started . . . Then one of my favourite humans announced she is running her final round ever of Coaching & I felt it in my heart immediately. ✨ I just KNEW it was meant for me. I felt excited, compelled & drawn to sign up. 🙌🏼
Choosing the right coach is just as much about your heart as it is your head. Always trust your gut & follow your instincts. Because what is right for someone else may not be right for you. But there IS the perfect coach out there for everyone. I truly believe that. 
Follow your heart & you will find them.
