    Christians Transformational Journey…


    Young woman practicing yoga on the beach.

    In the depths of the cold Melbourne winter, I began planning a November tropical holiday. I was looking forward to family time in the Balinese sunshine. What I wasn’t looking forward to was feeling self-conscious about my body, instead of relaxing. I knew I’d have
    to start tasting my own medicine and get serious about my training. Prior to opening Kaya, Koula and I trained regularly and made time to nurture ourselves. This changed when the Prahran club doors opened, our baby Lucas was born, and we opened the Emporium club. Our priorities completely shifted. Our focus was the clubs, our members and our Lucas.

    Now that things have settled (at least until baby number two arrives next year), I’m making more ME time. I’ve had to make myself a priority and put my training first. I’d always preached exercise and wellness to others. It was time to start practising what I’d been preaching (and MISSING) for so long.

    Growing up, I was overweight. I absorbed all the wellness information available at the time, and quickly learnt to associate ‘food’ with ‘fat’, and ultimately as ‘bad’. Realising this damaging thought process from my childhood was lingering shocked me. My belief in adulthood was still that the less food I consumed
    the more fat I would burn for fuel. Case closed. I recently came to learn I was starving my body, inadvertently slowing my efficiency at breaking down fat cells, and increasing my body’s urgency to store energy. With my body under the impression it was entering a famine, it was conserving all the energy it could and slowing down regeneration of muscle tissue. It’s a cycle of cutting calories, and tearing your hair out wondering why you feel less toned than ever! click here to read more

    About the Author

    Demi fell in love with yoga when she travelled to India when she was 20 years old. She loved the feeling of bliss she experienced both during and after class, and how that feeling would stay with her throughout her day. It was also in India, that Demi learned how much she loved to write about her travels. She believes that stories have power. They delight, enchant, touch, teach, recall, inspire, motivate, challenge. They help us understand. They imprint a picture in our minds. This led her to her job as a Content Writer. She loves helping businesses tell stories. Especially when the stories involve educating readers on the endless benefits of yoga and Pilates- two of her most loved fitness regimes
