Hello beautiful friends,

With Christmas festivities in full swing, rich food, late nights, more alcohol perhaps than usual and so much on the ‘To Do’ list, it’s really important to seek to preserve our inner balance and replenish ourselves regularly. So today I have the perfect antidote for the Christmas drain and anytime you need a pick-me-up…And I know that many others like you could benefit from this too.

Deep peaceful rest. It’s something we all crave and love when we get it. We all know how good we feel when we’re relaxed...

Hello beautiful friends,

Below you’ll find details of my upcoming JoyQ Course and Workshop starting very soon and to inspire you to join me, I’m talking today about a great “Truth”, i.e. the paradox, that to find JOY we need to cultivate inner peace.

The key to experiencing a natural flow of JOY from within is in first creating the fertile ground of inner peace. 

Well it’s quite obvious isn’t it, that if you have a great deal of angst, stress, inner turmoil and conflict going on, then clearly it will be difficult to access...

Hello beautiful friends,

As we’re getting older and the decades are mounting up, it’s easy to be complacent about, or to accept as true, the idea that our bodies will become less flexible and more uncomfortable and that our minds will become more set in our attitudes, beliefs and behaviour.

Well I don’t believe it. I won’t believe it. And everything that’s happening to me is telling me differently (and I’m not alone if ‘granny’ above is any indication… that’s an impressive peacock pose!)....

Hello beautiful friends,

Today I’m sharing with you my 5 Top JOY TiPS for keeping your spirits elevated when times get rough.

“He who binds to himself a JOY does the winged life destroy; but he who kisses JOY as it flies, lives in eternity’s sunrise.” William Blake

I so love this quote. It speaks to me of the changing nature of life and of the life within us, namely our thoughts and emotions. And Blake is so right. We can’t ‘bind to us a JOY.’ It’s unrealistic to think that we can always be on top of the world. There...

Hello beautiful friends,

Feelings are like waves, we can’t stop them coming but we can learn how to surf.

Well it’s late January already and the year is in full swing. What’s this year looking like for you? Are you sticking to New Years’ resolutions? Do you have a plan? Or are you just taking it one day at a time?


Whatever’s happening there’s one thing I know for sure.

Whatever you do in life is going to be easier and turn out so much better when you feel good inside.

Feeling is actually the reason why we do everything in...

Hello beautiful friends,

Imagine what it would be like to wake up every day with JOY in your heart...

feeling empowered and free to be all of yourself.

Wouldn’t it be nice to be calm and JOYful and ...

I hope this finds you all having a fabulous time and enJOYing the Christmas festivities and for those who may be going through a challenging time in some way now, then my heart-felt wishes are flying on the breeze to you right now. So take a deep breath and know that there’s love and support all around you, always.

Well it’s been a “while between drinks” as they say and for good reason. I’ve taken an unapologetic break from being superwoman.

I remember asking myself many months ago, how c...

Hello beautiful friends,

Well I thought I had it down! I thought I’d really covered Posture! I mean, I started years ago and have quite successfully (going by all the comments I receive) transformed my posture to well, pretty good. However it seems that Posture is just another piece of that proverbial string that goes on and on. 

So I’m really excited today to share with you two stories of how in the last 6 months I’ve successfully eased pain in two areas of my body by making simple changes to my posture.

I’ve just got to...
