We breathe 20,000 times a day. The breath is the gateway to reducing stress, feeling good and feeding the body critical nutrients needed to function correctly. What would happen if you introduced more breathwork and yoga into your life?


Eating smaller portions, more plant-based foods, reducing meat consumption, mindfully and more consciously will enable the mind to think clearly, improve concentration levels and focus on what’s important in our life. The body will also benefit from a 90% plant-based diet with 10% of your food going towards pure enjoyment and “treat” foods.


The body is 70% water and therefore must always be given water at regular intervals during the day. Reducing alcohol intake and increasing water consumption aids the body in the process of waste products from the system and supports the mind with our all important concentration levels and hydration.


Increasing our movement patterns is essential to living a healthy life. There are many knock-on effects e.g. better food choices made after exercising, lower body fat levels, improved sleep and blood flow, increased flexibility/range of movement and reduced stress levels.
