Healthy holiday breakfast
Healthy eating doesn't have to be boring - although it is easier to eat well when someone cooks it for you!
Life is like this flight - if you examine your progress too much then you only see how far you still have to go!
All the things that are available with me.
I am one of those people who is always making potions and mixes - nature is my medicine cabinet.
Sometimes you just have to stop and look out and drink the sights of your present moment in.
Bike ride to Pillar Beach, Cuba
This was about 9:45am and it was so hot - took us 30 minutes to cycle to the beautiful beach on bikes that had no gears and no brakes! A test of our nerves.
Quote in the Cuban sea
You do not know how difficult this pose was; with the waves crashing over me and my hands sinking into the sand - what you don't see is me collapsing into the sea and than the laughter that followed.
Because what is better than meditation in the exotic sun, without having to imagine the blue sky and the warmth of the sun rays!
The girls 😍
Loved Cuba, but also loved coming home to these two beautiful amazing girls - Poppy (front) and Daisy (back)
For me there is something healing about the forest and whenever I can I escape from Southport to the lakes to walk and walk and walk.
Water Lilly in Cuba
This beautiful flower literally emerged overnight and the colour was just spectacular
Relaxing with friends
108 sun salutations!
Every Equinox or Solstice my mum and I do the 108 Sun Salutations to thank the previous season and welcome the new. So therapeutic.
Hi and welcome;
I'm Natalie and I run Sunny Mind Yoga, Fitness, Nutrition and Massage.
This isn't just my business, this is my way of life. For as long as I can remember every path I have taken has led me to Holistic wellbeing and it is something that I adore pursuing in my personal life, stemming from a Great-Aunt who drank flowers from a tea pot when I was a little girl! By accidental design I have created a business that focuses on health, Happiness and Wellbeing.
We live in a busy, stressful world, where everything seems to happen a mile a minute and where we so often make ourselves the very last priority. More likely, we are so busy that we even forget to make ourselves a priority at all.
The world around us bombards our essence with aggressive energy and the world currently seems to be caught in conflict after conflict - which drowns our vitality and we lose our serenity - resulting in us feeling jagged, raw, deflected and lack-lustre. Without creating our own peace, we can never help anyone else find theirs.
I'm not perfect, and to be honest, that is not my quest in life...in fact I want to live life imperfectly me! When I worked in the gym one co-worker told me that no one would take me seriously as a Personal Trainer, because I was Kind.
He was right and wrong - I was taken seriously, because I was kind and people liked that about me.
I've discovered kindness creates more results than aggression.
My mission is to have people leave a session or a class feeling valued for who they are.
I can remember the quote I used in my Yoga exam "Kind acts are like water in a garden - they make a life bloom into glorious colour!" I love this quote, I believe every client and person who joins my class or has a session makes my life glorious because they've taken a chance on me and that is a kindness I can only aim to repay.
My classes and sessions are for anyone who feels frazzled by the bombardment of conflict and aggression; be that from your own internal world (anxiety, fears, lack of self-worth/esteem) or the external world. The main theme of Sunny Mind is that you feel kind, gentle energy that replenishes your soul.
I want you to enter a space of calm, tranquil safety that leaves you feeling cocooned and healed.
