We strive to create a new way of living and being in this world, a way that supports harmony, truth and connection. A way that embodies the Lion Heart... your true and essential nature.

Freedom is an Inside Job with Rowena Jayne - E17
We go deep into the mind body connection, unity and ultimately self realisation. Within this framework we discuss how to become free from self imposed limitations and blockages that reside within the body and the unconscious mind. It is powerful!
Rowena grabbed my attention with her vibrancy, joy, exuberance and her extraordinary ability to get her body into some incredibly flexible yoga asana's (postures).
We discuss how this kind of flexibility is really about clearing the bodies energetic channels and life force, initiating a true sense of inner freedom.
Rowena is trained in numerous modalities, she is a yoga teacher, author, health practitioner and is currently working on her own meditation series which is due for release soon.

Nia is so much of a collaborative community as well as a personal experience, it only made sense for me to ask these dedicated and amazing Nia teachers to share from their own experience what Nia is and how it has transformed their lives, as well as what having a Lion Heart means to them.

The Power of Correct Breathing with Tim Altman - E14
Learning to understand the dynamics of breathing within the body and to breath correctly can stimulate a depth from within you and transform your entire wellbeing. Yogi's know this!
Breathing is something that we do automatically it is the foundation for life. Learning to understand the dynamics of breathing within the body and to breath correctly can stimulate a depth from within you and transform your entire wellbeing. Yogi's know this!
In this episode we 'open a can of worms' as Tim relates the mismatch that has been formed within our evolutionary biology with regards to the bodies evolution, natural and unnatural stress responses and the way we actually see or perceive ourselves as human beings today.
This mismatch of evolution has led to an unnatural response to life through feelings of anxiety triggered incorrectly by stress cursers. Hence the 'mismatch'.
If you are feeling stressed, anxious or unwell, a powerful solution could be as simple as the way you take in your air.
Whilst we have evolved in so many ways, and it may not be right for us to return to hunter gatherer days, we must also understand what our body is naturally built for and that the flight or fight response is not a permanent state of being.
Breathing correctly and understanding the dynamics of correct breathing once again can help to mitigate the unnecessary, self created concept of 'threats' to our survival, that is the flight or fight response.
Tim is a naturopath/nutritionist, respiratory therapist, kayak/surf ski competitor and coach.
