Aerial Yoga

So I tried aerial yoga (also known as anti gravity yoga). That was certainly an experience! Waking up early, my friend and I popped into this quiet little place surrounded by green. We were looking for something different, and this place did not disappoint! I am proud to say I tried every pose, however unsuccessfully!…

Snow on Mt Buller

A few weeks back I went to the snow for the first time! It’s safe to say I had a blast. So much white all around, the bite of the cold taking you out of your mind and into reality. I felt like I had stumbled into Narnia. I’m definitely going to seek snow many…

Little changes, big impact

I’m trying to make small changes to foods I like in order to eat with less carbs. Using cos lettuce instead of hamburger buns was an easy change that tastes delicious and takes away the bread component of a meal.

Hiking and the mind

Werribeee Gorge, Victoria, Australia, proved a great location for a long hike this weekend. I found that as I walked up steep incline, across a river using rocks and chains, and crackling through the bush and the trees, that all my other thoughts ironed out and I felt happier, more relaxed, and yes, present, centred,…

Hiking in the Grampians, Australia

I felt truly humbled as I approached cave paintings that the Indigenous people of Australia had placed there so long ago, beautiful paintings on two different sites within the park. I also got to see a stunning waterfall, pictured here, and…

Regional Flavours Brisbane

Imagine being in the sunshine in the middle of winter, surrounded by food from all over the world, amazing samples of wine and cheese, and getting the chance to meet cooking experts like the judges of Masterchef Australia whilst live music serenades you? Then, imagine stumbling upon this completely by accident. That was how I…

New Zealand

What New Zealand meant for me- rolling green hills. So much green. My first helicopter ride, over the beautiful bay of islands- and the aqua water, the white sand, ¬†islands scattered in the water. The hole in the rock, which looked impossibly like an elephant to me. The bright colours of Hobbiton, and the taste…

Sugar free? I can do that

When I first decided to have a no sugar, low carb, high healthy fat diet, I struggled at first the moment I left the house. Each restaurant, fast food place, cafe, all seemed to scream JOIN US… WE HAVE WAFFLES. WE HAVE PANCAKES. WE HAVE PASTA. It was a hard few weeks there. It did…

Pause.

Hi there! My name is Emily and this year I started teaching for the first time, and my anxiety levels have been high for a very long time. I then discovered I had PCOS- the stress and anxiety had been making a mark on my body and I didn’t like that one bit. For me,…
