It’s a New Year and that time when we throw ourselves into our new years resolutions. Often our diet, exercise routine and social life change in an extreme way for 3-4 weeks as we earnestly try to start our year on a good footing and shed some excess weight.
January is here and we all want to do the best for our bodies and ourselves, and start the year the way we mean to go on.
I often have lots of people asking my view on the different diets that are being promoted at the moment. Do I go gluten free? Wheat free? Alkaline? Paleo? Sugarfree? It appears like a terribly confusing situation – but it needn’t be.
How has healthy become so confusing and at times extremely costly? With all these new powders and fruits appearing with added health benefits. Do you sometimes wonder which one should I choose and use?
Hello all, as we all know obesity is a growing issue with the worry that the increase of obesity and associated health problems could result in the older generation outliving the younger generation.

We love the spring and summer months because they represent new starts, new life and there is abundance everywhere. Everything seems possible and positivity is in the air as the vitamin D levels from the sun soar in our body and the Vitamin C from the lush greens replenish our wintered system.

Summer is here! Phew, it feels like it has been a long time in coming this year so for us July is all about getting outside and embracing all that the British summer has to offer – trips to the beach, swimming in the sea, outdoor yoga classes, watching the sun setting and the sun rising, picnicking with friends and family, bike rides and evening cliff walks enjoying the smell of the honeysuckle, fresh and abundant vegetables and soft fruit, bbqs and laughter, festivals and camping, live music and dancing. This month is all about having fun, enjoying the abundance in all life and creating more happy memories.
I have been asked recently for some personal growth book recommendations.
I love either fictional stories with spiritual morals or helpful guides for triggering an understanding of what we are not so we can better understand who we are. Here are a few favourites that I often dip back into:
Babies demand the best and no time is more important for eating well as while you are pregnant.

June is my birthday month and as a true Cancerian, I am very much home loving. After a busy few months of travel, I am really looking forward to spending much of this month at home (aside from a pilgrimage to Stonehenge for sunrise on the summer solstice!) to nurture, renew and enjoy this light filled time of year.
I was lucky enough to be able to escape blighty last week and find myself in the Oasis in Portugal that is Tipi Valley, an eco surf and yoga retreat based in the western Algarve of Southern Portugal next to the town of Aljezur started by a travelling Yogi Laurie Quirk 9 years ago.
