I left Australia at the age of 19 on my “6 month back packing trip”.
I arrived in Italy fell in love, with a man and the place – 3 kids and 17 years later I’m still here!
Life evolved naturally and I found myself cooking in the family restaurant and learning about growing vegetables, cooking with the senses and traditional ways of life in Italy.
On the outside this was all pretty amazing. Yet, inside I still felt like something was missing.
I had 2 little ones and was pregnant with my 3rd. I was still working in the restaurant full time and to help with making it through the day, I turned to coffee and sugar for a pick me up. I was physically exhausted, emotionally drained and mentally felt like I was slowly going insane.
And this was just my “normal” in fact it was kinda ok….. until it wasn’t. Which is how I found myself on a journey of self-care that involved big love, rather than tough love.
If you’re feeling exhausted, prone to mood swings, you have a heath problem thats bugging you or you just simply know it’s time to take better care of yourself, I invite you to join us for easy movement, guided meditations and simple actions which will help you easily create the change you dream of.
I needed a self care routine that could be done when ever I had a spare moment. It needed to be flexible so that by checking in with myself I knew what I needed to feel balanced and happy. I want to feel more rested and fix my allergies.
I had no idea it could be as simple as by giving myself 30 minutes a day, to stop and actually focus on these things.
The results were better than I could have imagined. Better sleep & feeling generally better throughout the day.
Dramatically reduced mood swings (ask my husband 😉 )
Stopped my sugar cravings and allowed me to be aware of what foods gave me lots of lasting energy and made me feel great.
Weight loss, baby tummy weight I hadn’t shifted after my 3rd child
Clearer skin and being able to breathe clearly.
Maybe you like me, have health as one of your top priorities for this year. Maybe you, like me also have children, a house, a job, a life and countless other things you do…if this is the case then possibly for you, self care drops seems to drop to the bottom of the list.
Finally I knew my dream was to share this with others…. In 2015, I became a Strala yoga guide and I am currently training to become a Dru meditation teacher.
Both these practices combined with coaching in these areas has enabled me to share this unique approach with others.
