evepostappleOnce upon a time, there was a woman named Eve, who, unable to resist the luring temptation of a fragrant orchard, took a bite of forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge. Perhaps Eve was bored. Perhaps she was ovulating and had a desperate craving for something sweet. Perhaps life in the little garden was becoming stressful or claustrophobic. Perhaps she felt out of control or lacked passion in her life and in order to numb her emotions or soothe herself from Adam's lack of attention or his ambivalence in starting a family, she chose to indulge. Perhaps Eve was an emotional eater. But as Eve soon discovered, neither the bite, nor the whole fruit fulfilled her as she had hoped. Not only did she realize she was naked but that she had contempt for the way she looked. Perhaps Eve suffered with body dismorphia. Eve tried to stop eating the forbidden fruit and eventually avoided eating altogether but that didn't work and she ended up eating until she could no longer breathe. The point of this is that Eve lost her intuitive ability to nourish herself. She no longer had balance in her life and was willing to do any and everything to get that back.

Maybe Eve didn't exist. Maybe the stories that were told are not as important as the stories we tell ourselves.

This blog is dedicated to creating new stories based on the philosophies of whole body nutrition, self-love, intuition, fitness and yoga.

In my journey I have sought to uncover the knowledge and balance which have brought me to a greater awareness of health and this is what I wish to share with you.

    Wanderlust Yoga Festival 2012 Highlights

    This year’s festival was incredible.  I had so much difficulty just selecting 10 images to share with you!

    The festival took place in spectacular Whistler BC.  Majestic snow-capped mountains and century old evergreens set the stage for brightly clad, lulu wearing yogis from all over the world to come and celebrate this ancient practice that has reminded us of the deepest parts of our existence and in some cases, brought us back to the divine.

    There were so many highlights of this festival but some of the main ones included:

    • Honey Asana class with Schuyler Grant
    • Meditative Hikes around Whistler
    • MC Yogi’s Concert
    • Thievery Corporation’s Jam Session
    • The Silks Tent
    • Farmer’s Market on Sunday
    • The Incredible Volunteers 
    • Spending Time with My Family and Some of My Favourite Teachers
