As an athlete, business women and mother, I’ve had many moments in life of being in the ZONE. Where I was laser focused, deflecting all distraction. Where internal chatter was quiet and controlled. Where I felt in flow and my movements were executed with precision and purpose. Where I felt light and energetic, my breath was full and slow. Where I performed at my best.
I've also had (many) moments in sport and life where, despite my best efforts, I wasn't in the ZONE. Where my thoughts were clouded, and I succumbed to distraction. When my breath was shallow and fast, when I felt out of control and made mistakes.
Although we all want to be in the ZONE, we also need to acknowledge that sometimes we just have a bad day, or moment, or performance. The growth is in letting it go. The growth is in humility. The growth is in learning from it. The growth is always trying to find a positive intention behind every situation.
I truly discovered yoga in 2012. At the time, I was suffering from a debilitating back injury and one I didn’t think I could recover from. My mental training coach directed me to his Yoga master where I began my yoga journey through private tuition and have never looked back. Within two practices, my mobility had increased and my pain reduced drastically. Within three months, I was fully rehabilitated and back tackling my goals as an aerial skier. Yoga saved me. Yoga is my medicine. Yoga prolonged my career in sport and has helped me live better in life. It has helped me not only recovery physically but it has centred me, calmed me, strengthened me and has become an integral part of my daily routine. The yoga mat is my sanctuary, a place where my stress, worries and sweat melt away and a place where I nurture and nourish my body and mind.
I founded BodyICE in 2007 to help others recover from injuries physically, mentally and emotionally and to help people reduce their pain naturally. My inspiration for ZONE comes from wanting to help people live better through creating environmentally conscious products based on my passion for yoga, recovery, sustainability and mental and physical health and longevity. Yoga has given me so much and I look forward to sharing the gift with you.
Our launch products were specifically chosen to offer support, release and surrender. A durable cork yoga mat, to hold you during flow and absorb all of your sweat and efforts and support you throughout your practice until its end in savasana; a unique cork yoga block to support and enhance your postures, to keep your body open and build strength; cork massage balls in two sizes to release tension and unblock energy channels in the body; a durable yoga tote to hold your mat and other essentials.
