Happy Monday! A big congratulations to Dr. Alice who placed 1st in both the Novice and Opens category at the IFBB @ifbbaustralia_official @ifbb_official SA State Championships over the long weekend! She prepped on a nutritious, plant-based vegan lifestyle, as she had been for the last six years. It’s proof that you don’t need to consume animals for protein! . The health journey can be one of the most fulfilling lessons in life and it is why Alice strives to practice what she preaches everyday . It is never about the destination, or the outcome. It is what you learn about yourself in the process, and how you can be better within yourself today than you were yesterday. Health is a priority, and a lifestyle. Do something for your health everyday and it becomes a priceless habit..an investment that will set you up for years down the track. A large majority of this is also MINDSET, something Alice works with her community (and herself) on a daily basis with #neuroemotionaltechnique in addition to chiropractic. This was actually one of the most invaluable and non-negotiable tools for her on a weekly basis during competition season. It is how she was able to continue running a practice, her numerous postgrad studies and weekend seminars, and keep up with her nutrition and training schedule. . The wellness journey begins with compassion for ourselves, but also aligns with compassion for others and our environment. Our practice therefore integrates our core mission in our stand against all animal and human cruelty including this beautiful planet we have the privilege to inhabit. . An enormous thank you to @emmjpaton and all our @awakenlifechiropractic community and practice members who supported Alice these last few months and offered words of encouragement, advice and inspiration! (And a lot of laughs about her changes in skin colour 😅). We are off to Nationals next week and we look forward to sharing the journey “beyond” the stage! 🌿❤️ . #chiropractic #health #lifestyle #bodybuilding #veganbodybuilding #community #wellness #bondi #sydney #bondichamber #plantbuilt #fitforlife #coach #healthcoach
I certainly get adjusted too! . Glowing after an adjustment and mobility work, then addressing and processing the weeks exposure to stress with NET. . Regular check-ins with your body and mind is just as important as taking a shower, brushing your teeth, fueling your body..all the LIFESTYLE stuff. Make this a habit and surround yourself with positive high vibe people who can hold space for you, even through all the dramatic “stories” of the mind. Our emotional realities can create all sorts of stresses on our physical vessel. So process them stressors, unpack the stories, implement, take action and expand! . Feeling amazing and clear headed right now!! I think my face says it all 🤗🌱🔥 So ready for the next chapter of this crazy life. Thanks Dr. Evan Sa 🙏 #selfcare #squeezingitin #chiro #net #kinesiology #mobility #rehab #cranialsacral #theworks #onestopshop #mindbodyspirit #awakenlife
Use this affirmation every morning. Then choose three things- that is, make three decisions EVERYDAY- that will allow you to move TOWARDS more health and wellness! . There is no such thing as a perfect body. At any moment, you are either moving TOWARDS health and wellness or AWAY from it. If you have a positive thought, you are moving TOWARDS health. If you have a stressful or negative thought, you are moving AWAY from health. If you make a decision to exercise or eat a healthy, nutrient dense meal, you are moving TOWARDS health, and vice versa. This is an accumulative, LIFELONG process. . So, what are you doing today to optimise the natural state of WELLNESS for your body?
Congratulations to our beautiful client @kiraleee94 who managed to swim her first 10km to raise money and awareness for @seashepherdaustralia @seashepherd. She’s been so wonderful to work with, and we have a lot of fun in our sessions! 😄 . We believe it’s so important to look after our health and well-being, as well as that of our environment. So we love contributing to organisations and causes that are making this world a better place for all! 🌏 . *sharedwithpermission . #chiropractic #awakenlife #athlete #rehabilitation #adjustments #fun #health #wellness #bondi #strength #mobility #swimmer #kinesiology #spine #spinalhygiene
Just wanted to give a big shout out to this amazing human @motheroffivesons - it’s a pleasure to work with you on your incredible healing journey. Thank you for travelling from the northern beaches so we can exchange the power of love, laughter, health - and food- together ❤️🙏 . Nat, you are a beam of light in a world that is often cast in shadows. You encourage us to be better today than we were yesterday. And most importantly, you embrace all your emotions with courage..you face challenges with solutions, options and optimism. . Thank you again for encouraging me to share more love and laughter with the world ! . . Thank you @nalinisayurvedickitchen for a wonderful vegan Ayurvedic feast 🤗 . #raisingourvibration #chiropractic #cranialsacral #net #ak #torquereleasetechnique #health #healing #cancerfree #supermama #supermom
When you walk into practice and see this..a vision that was once just a dream- all the hard work becomes worth it! . Blessed to be working with some beautiful humans (and their beautiful animals soon). @toro_gordito is actually a little human and he tells us he doesn’t belong on the floor. He’s got mummy’s back..literally 😍 #awakenlifechiropractic #plantbasedlifestyle #vegan #animalchiro #animalbiomechanics #minidachund #cutenessoverload #dominion #earthlings #friendsnotfood #vegancommunity #animallovers
It may be the middle of summer here in Australia - but summer is our wet season meaning it actually rains more in summer than winter! After a crazy warm weekend, this week has been stormy, cloudy and cool 🌀☁💧 That's why today's bowl inspiration is a warm comforting bowl of lentil stew served with baby spinach, avocado and rice ❤ A perfectly balanced whole food plant based meal 🌿 Thanks to @aspoonfulofhealth_ ✨ What are you making for dinner tonight?
Words to live by! ❤ Regular chiropractic adjustments, a whole-food plant based diet, regular meditation and yoga and doing things she is passionate about (helping animals and others) are our CA Emma's way of taking control of her body, mind and spirit and making the most out of life ✨ What ways do you like to stay in control and look after yourself? 💜 #naturalhealth #body #mind #spirit #takecontrol
We strive to do our best to hold space for those who are outreaching in the community for global change, in service of the planet and humanity. . We understand it can be just as rewarding and uplifting, as it can be challenging and emotionally draining to stand for the oppressed and the voiceless, humans and animals alike. . This is why we are proud to support Anonymous for the Voiceless (AV) for the work they do. . Bondi Junction held its first ever Cube of Truth recently and these amazing young activists visited our studio for a check up after standing for hours educating the public about the impact of the animal agricultural industry on our health, our planet and most importantly, the inhumane treatment and unnecessary suffering of animals. Thank you for everything that you do! . We have big goals in 2018 to continue to share the message of wellness through chiropractic care and a crueltyfree compassionate lifestyle ❤🌿🔅 . #anonynousforthevoiceless #vegan #veganuary #challenge22 #sydney #cubeoftruth #health #congruency #AV #wewillrise #bondi #fortheanimals #friendsnotfood
