Just to let you know, Marie-Claire will be out of action for a few days due to circumstances beyond her control (not Covid related for those that will ask) but she is currently unwell and in hospital. If you have a one-to-one or class with Marie-claire specifically this week it is quite likely to be cancelled.

Many thanks
Mark

This year has been a lot to get my head round. Energetically, I believe that many people have been through some super challenging stuff too.

From what we see right now in terms of the planets and then right in front of our eyes...there are a few more months of challenge before a reprieve.

Don't know how long the reprieve will last for but a) it IS coming, so when you are at your wits end, remember; it's around the corner and b ) also remember, it may not last. So plan ahead and ask for help if you need it. This too shall pass.

Leave 2022 in a ditch where it belongs but tread carefully into 2023. Hold your loved ones close and remember all the things you have to be grateful for. ๐Ÿ™

As a Jewish โœก๏ธ woman, I do not celebrate Christmas in the traditional sense. Christmas day has a long history of being a day to literally torture Jewish people, so its kind of difficult to get behind it ๐Ÿ™„. If you are interested, take a look at Saturnalia if you want to know some of the history and sufferance of Jewish people at that time.
.
Christmas day today has become a hodge podge of traditions with its origins in pagan Rome. Interestingly the Reverend Mather of Boston observed in 1687 that โ€œthe early Christians who first observed the Nativity on December 25 did not do so thinking that Christ was born in that Month, but because the Heathensโ€™ Saturnalia was at that time kept in Rome, and they were willing to have those Pagan Holidays metamorphosed into Christian ones.โ€
.
Because of its known pagan origins, Christmas was banned by the Puritans, and its observance was illegal ๐Ÿ˜ณ in Massachusetts between 1659 and 1681.
.
Non religious folk these days often enjoy 25th December for its lights, decorated trees, and family time.
.
For us, we forgo the fripperies and definitely focus on family. Let's face it - what else is there to do on December 25th in the UK? ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™„
.
Today we went out for a meal and it was lovely and I give thanks to the generations who came before and made it a peaceful day...in the end.
.
Whatever you did today, I hope you enjoyed it. We did ๐Ÿ™

Menopause can f**k off ๐Ÿ™„ (Sorry, but it can).
.
Menopause is a hot topic, as it should be. Here are some actual quotes from clients going through it at various stages -

*The whole process is just disgusting* ๐Ÿคฎ
*I literally couldn't add up 2 and 2* ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซ
*My va**na was so painful I couldn't sit down OR stand up* ๐Ÿ˜–
*I was so hot I just had to go and lie in the grass in the rain. It was 3am* ๐Ÿฅต
*I just couldn't stop crying, and I actually didn't know what I was crying about* ๐Ÿ˜ญ
*My husband and I had to go to counselling, I was so annoyed by him all the time I figured our marriage was over* ๐Ÿซฃ
.
There's more. Of course there is. I've had symptoms for the last year: sleep disturbances, hot flashes, brain fog (SO BAD), memory issues, dreadful anxiety & so on. But in the last 2 weeks, it's really ramped up several levels, and since this is the early bit; I'm dreading the next few years ๐Ÿ˜ณ.
.
So ladies, what are your best supplements/tricks and tips for navigating this hellscape? ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

Thought this was interesting: ๐Ÿค“
.
Studies published Tuesday in the journal Nature Communications found a link between several types of bacteria in the gut and depressive symptoms. The first study, titled "Gut microbiome-wide association study of depressive symptoms," in brief reported -
.
'Here we investigate the relation of f***l microbiome diversity and composition with depressive symptoms in 1,054 participants from one cohort and then we validated these findings in another cohort of 1,539 subjects. We identify association of 13 microbial taxa, WITH depressive symptoms. These bacteria are known to be involved in the synthesis of glutamate, butyrate, serotonin and gamma amino butyric acid (GABA), which are key neurotransmitters for depression.
.
*Our study suggests that the gut microbiome composition may play a key role in depression.* ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
.
The second study,"The gut microbiota and depressive symptoms across ethnic groups," reports:
.
Both the microbiome and depressive symptom levels vary substantially across ethnic groups. Thus, any intervention for depression targeting the microbiome requires understanding of microbiome-depression associations across ethnicities. Analyzing data from the 2nd cohort, we characterise the gut microbiota and its associations with depressive symptoms in 6 ethnic groups living in the same urban area. Diversity of the gut microbiota, both within (a-diversity) and between individuals (B-diversity), predicts depressive symptom levels, taking into account demographic, behavioural, and medical differences. ๐Ÿ‘

Pandiculationย is generally defined as the act of stretching oneself and yawning, especially upon waking. However, our automatic pandicular response has far more significance than simply prompting us to stretch and yawn.

Pandiculation is a fundamental part of our neuromuscular functioning.ย In fact, when it comes to maintaining our health, pandiculation is equal to exercise and eating a balanced diet.ย When we stop pandiculating, our muscles become tight; we experience pain, poor posture, and limited movement; and over time, the structure of our body breaks down.

So if you feel the urge 'stretch' - do it!! ๐Ÿ™

Most back pain is mechanical, meaning day-to-day life stresses lead to overload. ๐Ÿค”
.
Only a small number of cases โ€“ less than 1% โ€“ are caused by something more serious, such as a fracture, spinalย tumorย or systemic disease. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
.
The natural response to pain is to do less, but the opposite holds true with back pain symptoms. Thatโ€™s because exercise helps muscles relax and increases blood flow to the area.๐Ÿค“
.
Walking is an excellent activity to start. Walk 10 to 15 minutes twice a day at a moderate pace. ๐Ÿ‘
.
Also, the right stretches help calm low-back spasms.๐Ÿ‘
.
Slumping and slouching are often a culprit in back pain symptoms...so watch your position at work.๐Ÿคจ
.
Most back pain symptoms are self-limiting โ€“ if you donโ€™t make them worse, theyโ€™ll probably heal within days or weeks๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

I like to 'name' my classes on a week by week basis.
.
This one was called 'T**s up and Turnout'. ๐Ÿ˜
.
'T**s up' to target the upper thoracic spine, open the fronts of the shoulders and lengthen the neck, 'Turnout' to engage specific glutes and strengthen the ankle stabilisers.
.
But also...because it's entertaining to see what the group THINK I've come up with!! ๐Ÿ˜œ

Listen - I've just been scrolling absent mindedly through the insta and I've got to say...FORM and PRECISION in movement matters 'a little' not 'a lot'. ๐Ÿคจ
.
There are so many people posting about the 'correct' way to do something. You might think (from reading all that) that if you perform movement 'incorrectly' then you might hurt yourself?
.
SO unlikely. Is there guidance about how to take the iron out of the cupboard? No. Is there a handout about vacuuming posture? No. What about how to repaint a wall? Still no. ๐Ÿคจ
.
Think about the ranges of movement that you go through just doing everyday tasks. Do you hurt yourself every time? No. Do you hurt yourself sometimes? YEAH! ๐Ÿ™„
.
This is NORMAL! Please don't let this ridiculous idea that if you don't do an 'exercise' correctly you'll somehow cripple yourself. It's nonsense. Just move and if it hurts, change it a bit. End of story. ๐Ÿคš

It's great for focussing the mind - well; mine. ๐Ÿ˜

What do you do as a 'hobby' and why? ๐Ÿค”

This is the only thing I do that isn't super physical (like cycling, running and climbing) but I think it's just as important for health. Particularly mental health. ๐Ÿ™
