Have fitspo images ever made you feel like crap? I’m totally guilty of inflicting these feelings of inadequacy onto myself. At the start of last year I set an intention to move my body every single day. It would have been a wonderful intention, if the real motivation behind it hadn’t been to sculpt my body into the Victoria’s Secret model shape I was stalking on Instagram.Read More
Possibly less than you think.
Years ago, we were all encouraged to spend at least 30 mins a day doing some kind of exercise. If you wanted to lose weight, the prevailing wisdom was the more exercise the better.
However, new research is coming to light that show hours spent sweating it out in the gym is entirely unnecessary.
Unless of course you flipping love it, then fill your boots.
But if you’re pressed for time, confused about how you should be spending it when you are at the gym, or dreading your 1-hour Spin class – then read on.Read More
With temperatures dropping to chilly here in Australia, my morning mountain climbing is getting harder and harder to get out of bed for (although it’s still always worth it once I’m there). However, the part of my exercise regime that is pure bliss at the moment is hot yoga. Walking into that heated room feels like walking out into the sunshine.Read More
After giving you a run down of everything I eat in a day, I had a few requests to give you an insight of what my exercise schedule looks like.
I have a confession to make. Up until fairly recently, my exercise routine was pretty poor. I used to be addicted to Bikram yoga and would do that three or four times a week, but when I started Gerson Therapy and every hour was accounted for in front of the juicer, Bikram flew way down my list of priorities and my desire to exercise plummeted. But this year I made a commitment to myself to move my body in some way every single day. It’s something I bang on about constantly, so I figured it was time for me to walk my talk.Read More

I used to have a Kombucha problem. Which came to a head when my wife kicked me in the head and broke my nose. That’s also when I met my shaman, Edmund. Let me start from the beginning.Read More
GUEST POST BY SUSANA FRIONI. That white space on your schedule that was originally booked for yoga, has somehow been taken over with answering emails, taking that phone call, finishing that project, catching up with friends, taking care of the family, attending that social event, scrolling through social media, and working longer hours.Read More
You know you want to move your body in a joyful way every day. You know it feels good when your workout is done. You know it’s good for you in more ways than one, but damn, lately you just don’t feel like starting.Read More

When it comes to practicing and learning about yoga (especially in the early days of your journey) I highly recommend immersing yourself in a room full of other people while being guided by an awesome yoga teacher.Read More

I am going to die.
Or at least, that is what I thought during my first Bikram yoga class. Die, pass out, throw up, have a heart attack. They all seemed like viable options, and I was so ready to welcome anything that would end the torture and suffering.
For those of you that have been living in Greenland for the past few years, Bikram yoga is an intensive 90 minute yoga practice.
“90 minutes?” you say? “No sweat!”Read More
