One of these trees is following an unusual trajectory. It’s vertical reach is diverted to the side. It reminds me that nature is full of diverse adaptations all of them interesting... . I saw these trees last time I went walking by the river. But today I’m not able to walk amongst the gum trees.  After a recent flare up I’ve been diverted from my daily walking routine. . So looking at this crooked tree reminds me to practice compassion for the crooked path my spoonie life follows. Like the tree, I continue to grow towards the sky. .  #spoonielife #slowlife #yogalife #artlife #spoonieyoga #spoonielessons #treelessons #compassion #rest #diversity #diversability #accessibleyoga #restorativeyoga #somaticmovement #embodiedecology #melbourneyoga #mecfs #mecfsrecovery #treesofwhereiam @15.trees
To all my fellow spoonies & sleepies: thinking of you all today as I curl up with this sweet kitty for an afternoon nap. Today is ME/CFS awareness day so I’m offering a free spot in my next Deep Rest workshop for a spoonie activist in Melbourne. Thanks to all those who have the spoons to advocate on behalf of all of us! #mecfs #mecfsawareness #mecfsrecovery #mecfswarrior #slowlife #spoonielife #yogalife #artlife #restorativeyoga #somaticmovement #catnap #sleep #rest #dream #catsofinstagram #devonrex #catlady #catlover #melbourneyoga #accessibleyoga
Discovered this strange little wooden platform above a rooftop in Fitzroy today. I think it must be a balcony for cats. #catlady #catlover #catsloveheights #cloudgazing #slowlife #artlife #spoonielife #yogalife #restorativeyoga #somaticmovement #embodiedecology #creativeartstherapy
Following my embodied creative curiosity. Crossing over to the wild side...... #artlife #slowlife #spoonielife #yogalife #somaticmovement #embodiedecology #creativeartstherapy #yarrariver #suspensionbridge #melbourneyoga
Time to disconnect from devices for a weekend of heart-focused somatic inquiry & restorative yoga at Clearview Retreat.  #nourishtheheart #yogaretreat #yogainnature #rest #restorativeyoga #spoonieyoga #somaticmovement #disconnect #digitaldetox  #embodiedecology #clearviewretreat #yogalife #artlife #spoonielife #slowlife #selfcare #bushretreat #melbourneyoga
The simplicity of being well enough to take a walk by the river for my birthday makes me feel grateful to have survived another year of living with chronic illness with the support of friends, family, an amazing healthcare team & of course my yoga, movement, meditation & creative practices.  #spoonielife #yogalife #artlife #slowlife #rest #yarra #river #gumtrees #walkingmeditation #restorativeyoga #somaticmovement #embodiedecology #spoonieyoga #accessibleyoga #diversability #spooniewalk #resilience #gratitude #simplicity
Pae White’s bold 70s style spirographic installation at #ngvtriennial made me feel like a big kid - simply delightful! #artlife #slowlife #yogalife #colourtherapy
The Lost City of Atlantis. A somatic dive into the poetic resonance of the body’s interior ocean led me in today’s creative inquiry. Depth & spaciousness co-exist when I enter the sensation of submerging into my interior world. #somatictherapy #arttherapy #slowlife #spoonielife #artlife #yogalife #restorativeyoga #somaticmovement
Crashed spaceship. Delicate decay. Look into my eyes & see me still flying. #somatictherapy #arttherapy #slowlife #spoonielife #artlife #yogalife #insect #moth #wings #deadthings #restorativeyoga #somaticmovement #mecfs #mecfsrecovery
First day of training in multi-modal creative arts therapy.  Lots of sensory challenges for the spoonie student! This object represented my safe chamber for somatic enquiry; a space of clarity protected from the busy, noisy, smelly studio environment. A microcosm of how I live my life. #somatictherapy #arttherapy #safechamber #spoonielife #slowlife #artlife #yogalife #spoonieart #selfcare #mecfs #mcs #restorativeyoga #somaticmovement
Looking through the eye of the moon. Sometimes lo-res photography creates interesting effects!  And sometimes a little spoonie creativity turns small moments into something magical.  I didn’t have the spoons the go out with my tripod & dslr to capture the super moon eclipse. I just stepped out of my front door in my pjs, soaked in the moonlight & found this view.  #supermoon #contemplativephotography #gratitude #astrophotography #bluemoon #bloodmoon #supermooneclipse #bloodmooneclipse #mooneye #lunareye #luna #lunatico #moonlight #spoonielife #spoonieyoga #slowlife #artlife #spoonieart #spooniestrong #diversability #creatability #rest #restorativeyoga #melbourneyoga #accessibleyoga
Light. Movement. Mystery. Clarity.  2017 has been full of new growth & unexpected challenges along with precious moments of kindness & stillness.  Often at the end of the year I think ‘There goes another year of chronic illlness, another year of living the slow life!’ But this year I am feeling so much gratitude for all the people, practices & places that have supported & enabled me to get through the year with laughter, compassion & creativity.  For me, spoonie strength is the ability to cultivate resilience through sustainable self-care & creative self-nourishment. But I also know that giving to others (in whatever ways I can without sacrificing my health) also connects me with a sense of spoonie strength in my heart. Living is giving as well as receiving! So give your loving kindness this nye & feel the power of your heart.  #2017 #nye #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniestrong #spoonieart #spoonieyoga #contemplativephotography #slowlife #yogalife #artlife #rest #restorativeyoga #somaticmovement #embodiedecology #livingisgiving #melbourneyoga #gumtree #gumblossom #nye2017
Viewing the world from a supine position can turn things upside down! As spoonies our lives can feel upside down & unacknowledged because we spend so much time lying down!  I like taking photos from this position because it is such a different way of seeing the world. And by valuing this perspective, we can generate appreciation for spoonie lives & find gratitude for the diversity of human experience.  #diversability #spoonie #spoonieart #spoonielife #invisicrip #upsidedown #gumtrees #slowlife #yogalife #artlife #contemplativephotography #slowmotion #rest #restorativeyoga #somaticmovement #melbourneyoga #mecfs #mecfsrecovery #spooniexmas
“You arrive feeling tired & you leave feeling elated.” - Sue, Restorative Yoga student. It was Sue’s first class tonight & it was my last class of the year. So much gratitude to all my students & my beautiful workplace. See you for more Restorative Yoga & Somatic Movement practice in 2018. #restorativeyoga #somaticyoga #spoonieyoga #rest  #kundalinihouse #somaticmovement #solstice #somatics #melbourneyoga #spoonielife #slowlife #yogalife #artlife #downtime #selfcare #slow #mecfs #mecfsrecovery #2017
