movement and meditation

Ryan Henson is an internationally certified movement therapist and movement educator, he has worked with people of all ages and demographics to facilitate the journey of ’embodiment’. This process ultimately allows individuals to feel truly comfortable within their own skin and enlivens the human experience.  “I am beyond fascinated by the human body, I am utterly obsessed. Even when I sit in meditation, with my body still, with my mind quiet – I can still feel my lungs breathing me, my heart beating me, my blood flowing and providing nourishment for each and every cell in my body. It is in these moments that I intuitively know that movement is life, and that life cannot exist without movement. How cool is that! My own personal practice consists of finding the places within myself that are lacking this inherent movement and helping to integrate those parts back into the whole of me.  How I do this differs from day to day, most days I have a solid meditation/ yoga practice, some days I just let loose and …

Once I read “Beauty is a reflection of your inner self” … It took me some years to realize this, only after having gone through different sizes and weight fluctuations, mainly after my children were born. The word “diet” never had great importance within my vocabulary and unhealthy lifestyle. I felt defeated: I accepted the idea that your metabolism changes after your 30s (when even water makes you feel bloated) and that I will never have the energy I used to have before… For me it was part of being “mom”. But the fact was, my inner self didn’t feel good either and this was projected in …

love your life

A new year is the perfect time for reflection, goal-setting and visioning all we want to achieve in the coming 12 months. The first few months can be a flurry of resolutions, best intentions, and dreams! In the constant push to better ourselves, to advance, to improve and live our best lives, it’s good to remember that we are already good enough. While it’s great to focus on fitness plans, new nutrition goals, career wishes or leisure pursuits, there is a place for gratefulness too. Often, we can get caught in the trap of seeking more and more. In this cycle, we are actually running away from the present moment and from who we are right here and now. We are seeking, the new improved version of ourselves, but what’s so wrong with the current one?

snack healthy

For most of us, making healthy meals three times a day is a priority. Even when we are busy, we try to focus on healthy ingredients. It’s the snacks that get us! These days it is so easy to reach for junk food. It’s at the checkout at supermarkets, there are many fast food joints on every street, and we are feeling stressed or emotional – we often reach for chocolate, ice cream, cookies, crisps or something that we think will provide comfort. Unfortunately, even if it tastes delicious, eating too much of these kinds of food isn’t good for our bodies or our moods. Unhealthy snacks are loaded with sugar, salt and bad fats. Once the initial high is over, our energy crashes, our skin breaks out, we can feel grumpy and bloated. Science shows that the more junk food we eat, because of the high sugar and salt content, the more we crave them. It’s a tricky cycle to break! To beat these kinds of mood swings, it’s best to reach for healthier …
