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.

    True yoga or union with your divine SELF does not lie in the shape or pose but in the opening you receive with each breath as you move through stages or kramas of the asana.
This asana has been one of the most healing and empowering for me because it helps to clear energetic blockages in the heart chakra ❤
Beginners may start with Bridge Pose, which offers powerful healing benefits and enables the practitioner to breath without constriction.
Step 1:
Lie on your back, knees drawing in under your hips #feet flat to the floor
Step 2:
Move into Bridge Pose by lengthening arms by your sides and pressing your palms into the earth. Inhale to lift your hips and support yourself on your upper back and shoulders. Breathe here for 15-20 breaths 
Step 3:
To move into the full pose lower your spine back down and place your hands next to your ears. Press into your feet and palms into the earth come to the top of your head. 
Step 4:
Straighten your arms and walk your feet in if necessary. Shine out of your heart and take 5-25 breaths here.
