Simple Courgette Salad

  Ingredients 1 Courgette 2-3 Tblsp Pumpkin Seeds Drizzle Good Quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil Drizzle Good Quality Balsamic Vinegar Sea Salt + Black Pepper Method Toast your pumpkin seeds in a non-stick pan on a medium heat. You will know they are done when they start popping. Meanwhile, wash and dry your courgette and grate on the course side of the cheese grater.

Carey Yoga & _______________

Carey Yoga & _______________ The missing word here is NUTRITION! You would be forgiven for not knowing that I am also a fully qualified, registered Nutritionist and Health Coach. This aspect of my business has taken a backseat to the yoga since I started. And if I am being very honest, the simple reason is I have not yet found the most efficient and effective way of providing my Nutrition and Health Coaching clients with programs to help them achieve their health goals and lose weight. Until now! Currently still in the developmental stage, I believe that I have “cracked the code” on how to help people to lose weight, enjoy the process and keep it off! Revolutionary right!? I will be launching a new program very soon and I am looking for people to join me in the pilot program at a fraction of what the full cost of the program will be in the future. Want to know more…? You can contact me now to have totally free consultation, with absolutely no obligation to …


Yoga for Cycling Workshops We had a brilliant workshop in Tech Amergin in May, the only complaint being it was too short! So I’m delighted to announce 2 upcoming workshops in June. As the Ring of Kerry cycle is imminent and I know a lot of you are training hard for it I thought it would be really beneficial to dedicate these workshops to learning how your yoga practice can enhance your training and the main event itself. We will be covering stretches you can do before and after your cycle and poses that can develop the key muscles which power us on the bike. In addition we will talk about how to fuel the body with smoothies (plus a smoothie demo + tasting) and key nutrients that can help performance and recovery.
