Like all of yoga, diet is about balance and time and how you feel.

What you will learn over the year

This is no ordinary flower.

This is Murnong a flower that grows at my place.

The roots of the plant were an important staple food for the people who lived here before me.

Ancient systems of health & well-being.

This Course is dedicated to all the indigenous peoples across the earth. May their wisdom never be forgotten.
Thank You

This is a practical course.

In the course I have focused on bringing in the nourishing feminine practices. Such as self- massage, crystal meditations, essential oils and feminine yoga. There are a couple of gentle cleansing days (guided students only) to practice in the middle of the course. You'll gradually start eating more natural "super is a modern word" foods and learn how to use herbs and spices to improve digestion and stay balanced and healthy. This is the surface layer but you will move deeper and discover what gives you joy in life. It is not an easy path because you'll also discover what doesn't and often be going against what society, family and friends believe is important.

It is not an exaggeration to say you will be helping change the world by changing your life.

"The greatest gift you can offer your family and friends, is your happiness."

There is no test, you cannot fail. You will find out your individual dosha. You'll have a deep understanding of the word dosha and energy because understanding your dosha means you understand how to keep your health or energy in balance.  

By the end of the course you will know what classes, meditations, food, herbs, crystal etc. To use/practice to stay balanced or become healthier throughout your life. This will keep changing as you change.

You will develop more skills on nurturing yourself.

Study is yoga, meditation, gardening, walking, food, painting, knitting, reading, whatever you love doing. The course encourages you to study yourself. Your needs, love's. good & bad habits. Learn what you need to add to your life to feel fulfilled, content and calm and just as important what your need to let go of.

I recommend books to read as you progress but there is a lot of knowledge in the classes, my online book and my newsletters. Follow the links as you go.

The course should take at least a year and includes:

 

- 20  Online Yoga Classes.

Hatha. Yin. Flow & Restorative Yoga.

- Many 5 to 15 minute sequences.

- More than 30 Meditations.

- Modern Vegetarian Recipes.

A journey into understanding your unique self and gradually becoming healthier and more joyful.

There is only a recommended time frame, a minimum of 1 year...the longer the better.

Learn to act now in the present moment and make things happen.

EARTH

Finally sat down to write, been reading back through my journal. It starts out with a lot of moaning and just listing what I’d done but as the weeks go by I get into it a bit more.
In the beginning I was organising a timetable and ‘doing’ the classes & meditations, I found that once I chose a class and repeated it rather than mixing them daily the connection came. Feet rooted in standing postures, body heavy and pulled into the earth in laying postures, tingling….
Has felt like I’m wrapped in a warm cosy blanket, slowed down a bit and calmer.
I got some tea with hops and sleep has improved which always makes you fill better doesn’t it. I think the joint stiffness in my hands is a bit of arthritis, I’m sure a read somewhere to avoid lemon for arthritis so I’ve stopped putting it in my warm water, have you come across that at all?
Digestion is slow - what do you suggest for that? - so physically things are similar but mentally there has been a shift, back to me. Have got a little morning routine going on before work which includes tongue scraping, drinking warm water, one of the meditations (especially three wise women) and a few asanas. Only have about half an hour but it’s a good start to the day and rounded off with a bowl of porridge with fruit & mixed spice added, delicious!
Strong Body - Strong Mind has been so grounding and comforting I could stay for so much longer but I’m ready for the next layer…..
