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.

    Autumn Equinox Yoga Practice
With the days getting shorter and Libra’s new moon on the horizon, it is necessary for each of us to realign and once again discover our inner balance.  
Intention and letting go of what no longer serves are the inspirations behind this sequence and fall forces us to face death and decay as displayed by nature to prepare for the darkness of winter and internalization.
Autumn Equinox Sequence
**Note, this sequence will take you about 30-40 minutes.  If you are short of time, stick to 2 sun salutations A and 2 sun salutations B just to warm up the body
Warm Up
Heat and light generated from Surya Namaskar practice is the ideal warm up for the body.  It connects one with one’s breath and invokes all of the qualities of the sun into the body whilst encouraging devotion and humility.
Start with 5 Rounds of Surya Namaskar A (Sun Salutation A)Followed by 5 Rounds of Surya Namaskar B (Sun Salutation B)
Inversion Practice
This portion of the practice is to open the crown and upper chakras and nadis to receive energy and expand the electromagnetic field as well as to observe the world from a different perspective.
Sirsasana A (Headstand) 25 BreathsSarvangasana (Shoulder Stand) 25 BreathsHalasana (Plough) 10 Breaths
Balancing Series
Balancing poses help us to find our stability within our physical bodies as well as in our spirits and direction.  During times of increased chaos and change such as the beginning of fall, balancing poses are increasingly important.
