I walked home with a “what just happened” feeling. Vinyasa yoga Auckland. That first class was the beginning of the next phase of [...]

July 2006 - Healing   I clenched my stomach as I watched him turn. He walked away and I collapsed in sobs of heartbreak. Alone, I boarded a flight bound for New Zealand. The pain in my heart raw as I watched the small American town that I’d lived in for four years fade into [...]

Do you have a cup of love?

An abundant love cup I grew up with my love cup overflowing. I had no conscious awareness of what it was to not be loved. What a gift! To take for granted that life would always supply me with an abundance of people to love. My physical & material health/ wealth were never an issue. I [...]

How to be a Powerful Woman

At 45kg I was emaciated. A tiredness hung over me that I’d never felt and my heart was broken. An industry that I had poured my heart and soul into for six years was splintered. My house was on the market and I had very real threats of losing a business that was my sole [...]

Manipura Chakra and the Thoracic Spine
