• Two things to ease the pain before a workout

    Hi lovely human, I am, and always have been a very active person. I grew up dancing and I’ve always been an active member at the gym. However, when I was 15 years old I started to get a lot of pain in my body, especially my low back. So at the age of 20-21 I had to stop dancing, and then I did everything in my power to strengthen my back by working out. Which was hard. Add Lichen Sclerosus on top of that and I can honestly say that being physically active got harder and harder by the day. I was still doing physical activities, because I know…

  • Prioritize this for your health

    Everyone is talking about it, but let’s be honest, it’s not a priority is it? It’s boring, and it’s not an easy thing to deal with if you’re in a lot of pain. I used to dread going to sleep, because I knew the next day I would just wake up feeling shitty and still in pain.

I got into yoga about 5 years ago, but it wasn’t until last year I really started paying attention to my breathing, and boy it’s such an amazing tool for my healing, both mentally and physically.  Many people do yoga only to get a good workout, but breathing is such an important tool as well. Anyone who comes to my yoga classes knows how much time I spend talking about breathing, and…

  • For what reason do you eat?

    For what reason do you eat? This might seem like a basic question to most of you, but is it really? Yes, we eat to stay alive, but I believe we eat for different reasons. Maybe you eat to honor your body. Maybe you eat because you don’t like it (or the lack of eating). Maybe you eat to heal your body, mentally or physically. Maybe you eat to overcome a trauma, a breakup or your depression. Maybe you eat to fuel your body for a workout or a competition. Maybe you have a goal. Maybe you don’t. Maybe you don’t think about what you eat at all. Maybe you…
