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 …

Danielle shares with us her advice for a healthy and conscious lifestyle. 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 …

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 …

an easy mindfulness meditation

It was when she discovered the teachings of Grand Master Choa Kok Sui’s Pranic Healing in 2009, a non-touch energy healing modality, that Kassandra Scardino began her journey to self healing and self discovery. Since then, she dedicated her life to developing her skills as a healer and teacher. She shares with us a daily ritual that she created to develop mindfulness. “It is so important to connect with yourself daily through mindfulness meditation. It can be the difference between survival and thriving in our busy modern lives. The act of mindfulness is about being aware of what is happening to you in the present moment, and not living in the past or future. Too often we dwell on the past, where we ate that doughnut for breakfast and beat ourselves up for breaking our diet. Or we could be anxious about that deadline that is awaiting at the end of the week. Either way if it is somehow linked to a negative, that could be creating stress in our body and mind.
