Communities are only as strong as the health of their women

We’re just a little bit in love with former first lady Michelle Obama and going through some old quotes today we came across two which really resonated for us as women and mothers. Being healthy isn’t about getting on a scale or measuring your waistline… Wouldn’t it be great if we could shift this ancient […]

Summer bodies and supporting healthy weight loss

When "1" isn't the loneliest number

Summer is finally upon us (hooray!) which for many of us means holidays and summer fun with our families. It can also be a time when many women worry about their bodies, and especially the idea of wearing beachwear and revealing more of themselves then perhaps they are comfortable with. Everywhere you turn there are […]

Here are some of our favourites for you to try (if your medical profession gives you the okay 😉 ) Mountain Pose – the most overlooked yoga pose in my opinion. It’s a pose we fly through without really […]

Baby body and positive body image

As women we spend days, weeks, months and years of our lives fretting over our bodies, our weight, and our overall body image. From trips to the gym, hair salon, clothes shopping etc we dedicate vast amounts of time to looking and feeling good and then suddenly preganancy happens and everything we know changes! But […]
