Guest blog time! I know many inspirational people so I’ve asked some of them to write a guest blog. The first one is by my friend and colleague Tessa Venuti Sanderson. She is an extraordinary person and we share so many interests and ideals. Do look her up!
“You have all the answers. Ultimately, I really believe this is true. You might need some guidance and signposting along the way, but you can feel when something is good for your body. You’ve probably seen conflicting advice about what the best diet contains. Perhaps you’ve seen information about the latest exercise craze and wonder if it will have the same effect on your body.
What I’ve learnt over 16 years of teaching yoga, through completing my MSc in Exercise and Nutrition, and teaching menstrual cycle awareness to women of all ages, is that we are unique. And we change through the course of our lives. We need tailored approaches. I’ve become suspicious of anyone who claims to have the diet or ultimate exercise routine for everyone.
The key to supporting your well-being is feeling empowered to change what you’re doing. Information + empowerment to act = transformation.
My passion is empowering children and women to be body positive. To listen deeply to what their bodies tell them. I do this through the books I’ve written, including my latest one for pregnant women. Rather than another how-to book on birth, this book aims to support women to fundamentally shift their mindset, to transform the birthing journey and parenthood too.
The illustrated children’s books about puberty are for younger readers. They give children a language about their bodies and normalise body talk. This empowers them to speak about what makes them nervous about growing up. And to tell someone if they don’t have the body sovereignty that they have a right to.
Well-being is more than skin deep! Cultivating it is a life-long practice.”
