Merry Christmas


 



Wishing you and your family a healthy & happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.



How time flys. It only seemed like yesterday I sat down to do my Christmas 🎄 cards and BOOM it's here again!


I trust 2016 has been a good year and you are ready to welcome a brand New Year 2017. I like the look for 2017! It's always a perfect time in December to set some aside to reflect back on your year. 

The challenges and the accomplishments. We all experience times in our life of Joy, Love, happiness and we can experience loss of a loved one, change, and challenges. 


I certainly had a fun whirlwind year with re branding my new Bikini Mama Online program and returning back to the competition stage. This time I didn't take it quite so serious and tried to have fun. I loved having my girls with me to share the experience this time around. 


My favorite quote "Where the mind goes, the body will folllow." 

It is so true. I couldn't believe how quickly I could get my physical body back to competition level and come away with more medals in my mid forties. 


The body has incredible muscle memory, and getting old doesn't necessarily mean we need to allow our physical body to get old and achy! 




Competing in my mid 40's was exhilarating and just goes so in line with everything I personally believe about how incredible our physical body and MIND is.


There are certain tools and techniques to learn, that is exactly what you learn onnmy Bikini Mama 10 week mind body transformation. 


I am very  excited to be holding more 3 DAY YOGFIT DETOX RETREATS throughout Australia & New Zealand, and continue my healing retreats in Bali.


Bali, and Fivelements Healing Centre is the perfect location for re aligning your body back to its natural state of health & vitality.



I hope you can set some time aside to reflect and enjoy looking through my raw vegan recipes I have selected for CHRISTMAS 🎉 CELEBRATION.



Merry Christmas 



"The spirit of Christmas is the spirit of love, gratitude, generosity and of goodness. It illuminates the picture window of the soul, and we look out upon the world's busy life and become more interested in people than in things."


Love & light
