I made it to my first training session this morning with Nikki Ellis at Cinch PT, after having had to deal with some niggling minor health issues to start my year. I was lucky to get the last spot as classes have been very busy since the New Year. I expect to be in all sorts of pain tomorrow! Although Nikki tells me that her word for the year is ‘sore’ while my word for the year is ‘expansion’ (although I didn’t mean this in the physical sense!).
Apparently Nikki was reading about words for the year on Mamamia and if you are a fan of Mia Freedman she is going to be the guest speaker at this year’s Banyule Women in Business Lunch being held on Thursday 9 March (the day after International Women’s Day) in the Great Hall at The Centre Ivanhoe. I had dealings with Mia’s agent last year as we actually invited Mia to be on one of my lecture panels but unfortunately the stars didn’t align as Mia was going to be overseas. I think this event is likely to sell out so I would book now if you’re interested in seeing Mia.
Speaking of inspirational women, I discovered 98 year old yoga teacher Tao Porchon-Lynch online a little while ago as she’s currently featured in ads for activewear brand Athleta. I’m also looking forward to returning to yoga classes soon, which I’ve missed as my teacher is currently away in India.
I just wanted to mention some local art exhibitions that are launching next week including Atmospheres & Environments at Hatch Contemporary Space in Ivanhoe as well as My Melbourne, Here and Now by Hans Schiebold and Bella Italia by photographer Heather Davies at Montsalvat in Eltham. Puesta del Sol is also on poolside at Montsalvat next Thursday night if you’re after some food, drinks, music and art. Have a great weekend!
