According to Tradition Chinese Medicine or TCM the liver is called the 'General' and is responsible for • filtering • detoxifying • nourishing • replenishing • & storing blood.
• It’s also responsible for converting Sugar to glucose, which it releases into the blood stream whenever the body requires extra energy.
• The liver also receives all amino acids extracted from food and recombines them to absorb protein required for growth and repair of bodily tissues.
So having a weak Liver means you health & Vitality will take a big hit.
Look out for our carefully created LIVER CLEANSE, coming soon!

'If you are at home with yourself, as yoga teaches you to be, you can be at home anywhere'

A year ago today this scan was taken of the large mass attached to my left ovary... Know your body’s ladies, it’s known as the the silent killer.... tomorrow I have a meeting with my surgical oncologist for a check up ... If you are feeling bloated, having unexplained abdominal pains, feeling fatigued and need to pee a lot .... GO SEE THE DOCTOR. #livingwithcancer #cancersucks #ovariancancer #knowyourbody #fuckcancer

My yoga today was a sculpt audition evaluating a possible new hire. and sprinkle in the demo-ing of poses in the 3 classes I taught. Also my massage.

Yoga comes in so many different forms. I really get tired of hearing people say "that's not real yoga" about handstands or even RESTORATIVE! How can you say that?! Yoga is the unity of body mind and soul. Now how you choose to manifest that is YOUR decision and life path.

Do handstands. Work mobility drills. Flow vinyasas. Sleep in corpse pose. If you find balance and continue to find it with your method, that's yoga.

I didn't take a picture today I forgot. So here's my #tbt with my cat who didnt wanna be in the photo to begin with, can you tell by the look on his face? #gmtfooh #getmethefouttahere lol

Really pleased to be teaching about the navigation of chaos in class starting today. So many different arrows and darts life throws our ways & we think that if we don't follow "the divine path" or the "textbook advice" or "societal expectations" then we've failed. We have fallen overboard. Ship has sunk.

Nothing can be further from the truth. Please learn to trust the spirit of your internal guidance. Please listen to the soft voice behind all the noise inside of your head. Believe in the divine within you. Because divinity isn't obtained. You already are that. And that is already you.

Big thank you to Dianne for nurturing my body in a nice long massage. I've had some abdomen issues recently and I'm not sure its cured completely but she definitely massaged out my ileo cecal valve and it's the first time in weeks I've felt my stomach function the way it normally does.

Take care of yourself. Don't always listen to doctors, psychologists, parents, even teachers. we only tell you what we know from our own experience. Sometimes the right answer comes from your own trial and error.

Mamas...Ladies...have you been fighting the aging process? •

Yeah, no kidding, me too! 🤣 Although for the most part I feel better than ever; stronger, healthier, active, adventurous, happy, whatever. You name it, I am living it, but...what you can’t stop is “The Change”. Bleh. •

At some point in your life it will happen. Now you have to decide how you live through it. •

First and most importantly, you really need to know your body. So no matter your age, start connecting with your whole body; mind, and spirit too. It will truly help: a) recognizing when something different is happening; and b) you will be able to adapt to “The Change” you are experiencing a little quicker. •

I’ve been struggling severely with piercing migraines every day for weeks now and it has come to my attention that certain things trigger it. I made some adjustments to reduce the pain, and then when I thought I figured it out... I discovered at a certain time of day...BOOM! There it comes again. •

What I am working on is trying to prioritize and get everything important to me done as early as I can before the migraines begin. I’m changing my diet yet again (which is just part of life depending on evolving goals and where you are in life) and making sure I stay active. •

We can’t hide from aging, but we can age young and gracefully. It just takes work. Learn and know what to look for, because everyone is different and symptoms to whatever you are experiencing can be different as well. So know yourself and educate yourself. •

You don’t have to go through any challenges alone. Make sure you use your support system to help you.


I am here for you if you too are experiencing change in your life. We can get through this together!!!!

¿Estas en esos días? Aquí te damos unos tips sobre como alimentarte para sentirte con mas energía, mejor humor y menos cólicos e inflamación.

Durante esta fase, los niveles de estrógeno y progesterona están bajos. El útero pierde tejido y vasos sanguíneos los cuales se secretan en forma de sangre (10-80mL es lo normal). Durante esta etapa se pueden experimentar cólicos causados por contracción úterina y abdominal. También en estos días se pierde hierro en el sangrado por lo que es importantisimo consumirlo y asegurar su absorción con la ayuda de otras vitaminas.

Check ‘Em Wednesday doesn’t quite have the same jazzy ring to it as #checkemtuesday but #mumlife got in the way of me posting this yesterday!
This is your important reminder to do your weekly self breast exam. It literally takes 2 minutes to check your breasts and armpit areas for abnormal lumps, bumps and redness. It could save your life. 💕
Do it in the shower with soapy hands if you prefer because goodness knows it’s cold at the moment!
While you’re at it, why not do your kegels, book in for a pap smear if you’re due (or overdue) and make sure you’ve drunk enough water for the day!

✨ Gorgeous imagine by @duvet_days ✨The menstrual cycle is very important in Chinese medicine (sorry guys), it tells us so much about what is going on in the body, even if you’re not coming in for menstrual irregularities. In saying this, it’s one of my favourite things to treat 👩🏻‍⚕️What’s your cycle like? Pain, PMS and irregular patterns aren’t actually normal. 💫 Understanding your body and getting to know your cycle can be incredibly empowering 💪🏻 #chinesemedicine #chinesemedicinemelbourne #acupuncture #menstruation #menstrualcycle #menstrualcycleawareness #period #periodproblems #ovulation #wellbeing #fertility #knowyourbody #naturalcontraception
