Self Care

What is self care? Understanding self care is essential to our integrated women’s health resources, courses and retreats. Making time for self care is the starting place. We encourage - easy nutritious recipes, short yoga and meditation practices, and access to more if you want it.

Good Nutrition

A key part of integrated women’s health and any holistic living program or lifestyle, is good nutritious food. Integrated health includes all aspects of health, well being and self care.

We recommend that our Online Nourish in Nature Resources are integrated with a well balanced diet rich with vegetables and fruit, very low on processed carbohydrates, and refined sugar. We also feel that a more pesticide free, plant based diet is healthier for both body and spirit.

We don't advocate any extreme diets or extreme exclusion of certain foods as this is a very personal thing. We aim to cultivate healthy relationships to food and to develop awareness of eating mindfully.

Movement & Relaxation - Embodiment practices

Ultimately yoga is a practice of connection, discovery, personal growth and transformation. This is true of any embodiment practice. Yoga is a practice which brings us home to our deepest sense of ourselves.

In this regard it can bring us to our true feminine nature, our Shakti, our power, and an understanding of the balance between the divine feminine and divine masculine energies which we all embody. Yoga offers a practice and way of living which should honour our body and cultivate our life force.

Nutrition and superfoods

Rather than taking daily vitamin tablets, much of our nutrients can come from organic wholefoods and superfoods (foods super rich in healing nutrients). We aim to teach you to be able to distinguish between facts and hype behind the latest superfoods, and also be able to forage for your own native superfoods ( for free!). We will also teach you specific foods rich in nutrients to support women's needs and hormone balance.
