Sensational Salads with Aimie
Aimie is a self-employed personal trainer based in Bondi. For much of her life, she was ill: suffering from IBS; constantly fighting infections and colds; seemingly unable to shake off that horrible bloated feeling; dealing with very embarrassing episodes of fainting on a regular basis or needing the toilet without being able to hold on. Clearly something was not right and around 7 years ago, she began to alter her vegetarian diet to a predominantly vegan and ultimately raw diet. The results have been amazing…
She has lost weight, shaken off the various illnesses she suffered with, feels healthier than ever and has energy to burn on a daily basis. She puts this amazing turnaround down to one main factor: the stuff she eats and drinks.
Having realised along the way that she is not alone in the daily struggle to keep happy and healthy through nutrition, she has written Nourish With Aimie to share some of her favourite recipes and motivating stories with you to inspire you on your journey to becoming happier and healthier through nourishment!
Carmel - Oceans Mirror Culburra Beach
When you see people throwing away beautiful old glasses because they are the last of their kind in the cupboard, or because they have a minor chip, does it make you want to cry? When hand turned wooden bowls get turned into kindling does it make you angry? When chipped crystal bowls get binned do you get crazy?

Anna Smallwood - Roaming Yogis
Anna was first introduced to yoga in 1998 as part of her intensive training as Professional Contemporary Dancer. She completed a Bachelor of Dance at the Victorian College of The Arts and always maintained her yoga practice while working as a dancer. Anna immediately fell in love with Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow practices, as they promote freedom through movement, yet unlike dance are driven by the breath.
Anna completed her yoga teacher training at Brahmani Yoga in Goa, India, with Julie Martin, in 2005. She has since returned to India many times to both teach at Brahmani Yoga and to deepen her own yoga practice.
Anna also teaches internationally on Brahmani Yoga and Shakti Spirit, Yoga Alliance teacher training programs in Bali and Goa. She often leads retreats in India, Bali and Australia.
Today, Anna’s classes are inspired by her love of dance, movement and music, as well as the joy of tapping into moments of stillness and spaciousness, and really listening to what arises from within that space.
Anna is forever grateful for the teachings of Julie Martin, Emil Wendel, Clive Sheridan, and Rachel Hull, who have illuminated her Sadhana with their teachings. She enjoys sharing her understanding and deep love for yoga with others and witnessing the transformation it brings to her students.
Anna is a registered teacher with Yoga Alliance (ERYT 500) and holds a Level 2 teacher certification with Yoga Australia. Her favourite pose is the cosmic egg.
Lyn Elliott - Real Woman vs Super Woman
I have always had a passion for helping people and coaching. Being a Life coach is my purpose.
From a very young age, I have helped people in different capacities from training young athletes in their chosen sports, coaching and mentoring them to improve their performance, being a life guard, training and assessing employees in different workplace situations.
I then developed a passion for the medical field and trained students as well as mentoring and coaching other trainers for over 14 years–volunteering as an emergency first aider at events.
The passion was so strong to help others in need that I trained to become a qualified paramedic helping the sick and injured for 10 years. I absolutely loved this; however, I felt a strong desire to be proactive and help people Before the problem became too debilitating rather than being reactive and trying to deal with the problem after it had reached a critical point in their lives.
I strongly believe that we can improve our health and increase our happiness by changing the way we think. Our beliefs, thoughts and feelings manifest in our physical bodies – I was a testimony to that.
