To crunch or not to crunch.....THAT is the question. - by Samantha Montpetit-Huynh - Bellies Inc

Could not have said this better myself. Well done Sam.

belliesinc.com When I hear the word “crunch” my eyes squint and my head hurts and when I am in the gym watching countless people pull on their necks, wince in pain as they crunch over and over and over again, I have to admit, I shake my head. I am known as the one who not ...

A great profile on the Darou Wellness website on our kinesiologist and personal trainer, Shirley Srubiski:

"My interest in women’s health began when I started learning about the number of problems women endure for years that can be helped by a few simple exercises. I had no idea that so many women are living with treatable conditions such as incontinence; pelvic organ prolapse; hip, pelvic, and back pain; and diastasis recti. What alarmed me even more was these women were suffering in silence and when they did seek out help they were given little to no answers. Incontinence, in particular, has become normalized in the fitness industry and even celebrated as a badge of honour indicating that someone is pushing themselves to a “higher level”. This notion could not be further from the truth. I decided I had to be part of the solution to this problem and educate women about the importance of training smarter rather than harder."

"Normal" vs Healthy, great post!

The WOMB - World of my Baby

The WOMB - World of my Baby

Morning lovely mamas :) One of our clients is organizing a spring clothing swap at The WOMB - World of my Baby on March 22nd, at 7pm. The idea behind a clothing swap is to clear out some of the things you don't wear anymore and 'swap' them out for something another mama brings that you think you will wear. If everyone brought one to a few items and put them into a pile in the middle of the room, we would have plenty to go through and lots of 'new to me' clothes :) Whatever doesn't get taken home I will bring to a clothing donation box. Bring a snack, some clothes, and your lovely selves out for a good time!

Please note that this is for adult Womens' clothing this time, not baby clothing this time.

The newborn instincts are so amazing- witnesses and supporting these first moments outside the womb is so important.

Super Simple Bone Broth Recipe

I always make a stock/broth after roasting an organic chicken as a base for soups. This broth was incredibly flavourful and my baby LOVED it too!

The reason people are sipping this stuff as a health food without necessarily using it as a base for soup is because the richness of the minerals and amino acids in a form that is highly digestible. It is nutrient-dense, healing for the digestive system, fantastic for skin/nails/hair growth and essential for those with autoimmune disorders. It is a wonderful first food for baby too,1000x better than rice cereal!

The Belle Method

Thank you The Purple Fig for publishing this article I wrote about a pretty big (yet not talked about!) issue. It all started at a Bootcamp I was teaching about 6 years ago when students joked they couldn't do certain moves (jumping jacks, ladder hops, etc) because they weren't wearing a liner. Ladies, there's a solution, and it ain't the kind of liner you're wearing.
