Ayurveda talk at the Kent Wellness Festival

On Saturday, August 7th, I will be giving a talk on Ayurveda at the Kent Wellness Festival.

Held in Maidstone, at the Kent Event Centre, Detling, the event is a two days celebration of all aspects of the wellness industry: fitness, nutrition, meditation, yoga, mindfulness, spirituality and self-improvement.

Watch your words!

Words matter enormously, not only the words we utter out loud but also the ones we say to ourselves. Being fluent and varied in your vocabulary will provide us with a different perspective, a different point of view and can foster greater self-love and compassion (for ourselves and others).

Lose your focus and fall over

Some of us have naturally better balance than others, but what ever our level is, balancing postures can help us reach deeper into our selves.

When our consciousness moves freely through this area, we access our
