Inspired by the blog post of Canadian Physical Therapist and founder of PhysioYoga Shelly Prosko, there's a new blog post with a link to Shelly's inquiring mind (her new blog) this newsletter.
Honored to have a Shout out in Shelly's newsletter yesterday too, linking to the recent article Skilled Core Assessments as a worthy read. Namaste and thank you again so much Shelly.

For Mums living a distance away from help and support in post pregnancy training, Jo Cordell-Cooper, Personal Trainer from Hobart, has new Skype sessions available for Mums, with details in the link below.

Jo has also shared an article about using Kettlebells during pregnancy with us this month. Thank you Jo.

With price hikes recently in Australia, Bessie Hassan gives some advice in her article about bouncing back from these recent health insurance price rises. Another thank you - to Bessie for this.

Enjoy and have a great fortnight.
