Music: All is fair in love and war (Oriah original)

All is fair in love and war ~ an original Oriah song

One of my favourite Yogis just took the brave step of following her dream; and she made a video encouraging others to follow there’s. Here she is with the first full-length song I’ve ever heard of Oriah music, mostly, all her other songs have been covers like Bill Withers, ‘Ain’t No Sunshine Anymore,’ sung wonderfully so. The lyrics of ‘All is Fair in Love and War’ blow me away; the way she sings them brings up raw emotions that I didn’t know existed. (They are written at the bottom of the video if you click on the previous link.)

When’s the Right Time to Get Your Boogie On?

We have foil floors in this rental house that are slippery to dance on when wearing socks. I’m way over the moon to tell you I should be out of here, and into ‘Freedom: An Allergy-Free, Eco-Friendly Home‘, which also happens to be the title of the book I’m in the process of writing. I wrote a post on ‘Get your exercise anyway you can‘, and I wasn’t joking! Here’s a shot of a morning yoga session at the beach.

That is not sea monster coming out of the water, it’s my dog, Bella.

And here’s a shot of our foil floors at home. DSC02244 I don’t have the stamina to walk the on the beach (I used to do 6 kms easy) nor run on my treadmill even in a controlled environment (only within practical reason (with air purifiers, dehumidifiers and air-conditioning) and not with full environmental controls (meaning a safe home)). Hopefully in my new house, I’ll be better and be able to go back to doing cardio. But for now, I’m making the best of this situation by hanging out with BananaBlondie108 and GretchenKarma. And I will tell you this: aluminium foil floors are slippery when you dance on them in long socks and yoga pants. It’s way fun, and may possibly be one of the only things I will miss about living here.

Yesterday, after 6 days of being sick and exhausted after 3 hour drive to see my GP last week, I woke up on the 7th day🌈feeling better. 🙏 While I was wondering if today was the day I could do morning yoga–like successful, satisfying yoga where I feel at peace and energised afterwards–this lovely person @gretchastretch popped up doing a live #periscope yogic energy dance endorphin thing. So, after my 1st coffee (usually I have 3) I was out of bed dancing in my socks on my slippery aluminium-coated-foil floor. So much fun. So heart lifting. So free from the mind and body constraints of my illness. And then I did my practice with @bananablondie108 and my hot vegan boyfriend, Dan💗 (Later in the day, stuff happened at the new build where the state of my health took a hit. Today I’m in bed smiling through my illness, and feeling amazed at the beauty and compassion in our world 🌎.) Thank you @amazingameliahill 💗for leading me to Instagram world with your positive-thought-provoking words) #grateful #yoga #dance #periscope #gretchenkarma #SEID #MCS #amazingameliahill

This is the pine floor that releases pine terpenes that give me a headache. Every six months we layer another layer of foil lasagna down. Because if we don’t the fumes make their way through. We’ve just laid down another layer, so all is cool! DSC02245 In our new house, it’s going to be so damn awesome to have a room to work out in that doesn’t make me sick. Since being forced to slow down and only, only, do yoga, I’m learning a new appreciation for my body and the things I do for it. Yoga is grounding me right now.

Off to do some yoga with #bananablondie108 cause I can’t hack the stress and worry over my project: #buildAnEcoFriendlyAllergyFreeHouse A photo posted by Michellina (@michellinaoutofthelabyrinth) on

If I can manage chronic illness and work out in this house, I can do it anywhere. And my next house is going to be so awesome to not have to be trying to control the air I breathe, which means I’ll have more time for yoga, my exercise of choice. hinduism-277207_1280 The bonus of your children moving out is the extra space for gyms and yoga rooms; yes, one of each: we’ve removed the wall in between the two rooms so that it’s just one giant space. With tiles on the floors, not wood, we’re going to need a solution for yoga mats that are non-toxic. Perhaps, I need to ask FoodBabe, LOL. Tiles can be bone breaking if you fall, I’m told. I’m tempted to do floorboards just in the studio gym but I’m over trying to use paints for now. If you have any ideas on floor enamel for hardwood floors as in coatings that would be great if you could share them with us at the labyrinth, please leave a comment below.

Exercise Anyway You Can

For people who suffer with chronic illness or are housebound due to practising avoidance of chemicals as part of their treatment, it’s important to get some form or regular exercise. The following clip reminds me that it doesn’t matter how you get it or what you do to get it just so long as you get some. (For some of us, exercise is like medicine that just makes the day better.)

This is Joanna Rohrback from Prancersise ‘prancing’, which is just prancing crossed with dancing, around a paddock with a couple of horses. (Cause come on, we all know we want to have a try at this!)

Enjoy :)

You can subscribe to the Prancersise channel here

Or check out this book:

Prancercise®: The Art of Physical and Spiritual Excellence, is a whole new way of thinking and approaching fitness. To be really fit we need to consider more than just ourselves; we need to also consider the conservation of the environment (as through vegetarianism), and non-violence, through our thought process and behavior. This book is a true literary resource well researched and documented, not just propaganda. It’s a recipe for fitness, health, and self-fulfillment!

I’m not immune to rocking it out around the house myself just to get my exercise in. Ergo, give me a paddock and a couple of horses and I’ll be off like Joanna for sure.

How about you? Did you manage to get your exercise in today?
