By nourishing our bodies with the right foods it allows us to see positive results throughout, be it a better inflammatory responses to reduced stress levels.
At CBA, we believe in listening to what our bodies are telling us regarding to the foods we put in, and the effects that they have on our overall Health & Wellbeing.
The main points to remember are to base your diet around:
-Whole Foods from plants in the colours of the rainbow with amazing healing properties & essential phytonutrients
-Live Foods & Ferments to aid with healing & boosting your gut health
-Essential Healthy Fats to provide you with essential energy & nutrients as well as enhancing cognitive ability

Food is the most widely abused anti-anxiety drug, and exercise is the most potent and under-utilised antidepressant.
By nourishing our bodies with the right movements daily, it allows every single joint, ligament, tendon & muscle to experience its full range available.
At CBA we believe in Movement Exploration & teach you to tune into your own body, FEEL what is going on within it & listen to what YOUR body is telling you.
When we were children, we ran, jumped, skipped, & laughed to our hearts content, however as we began to mature our ego's kicked in along with the stresses attached to becoming an adult. While working with clients, I have found that this is a key turning point in so many of our lives because we "forget" how to PLAY and begin to look for external stimuli like fast-food, alcohol, & drugs to have fun. This is the starting point to when we become "unhealthy", overweight, ill, and mentally drained and is not a path where you will find the answers that you are so desperately looking for...
Today is the day where you can make changes to your health, so move your body however it wants to be moved, listen to what it is calling out for and give it the stimulus it so desperately needs in order to start healing & thriving. If you don't like running, don't run-look for an activity that you do like, something where you still move your body but smile, laugh & have fun in doing so...
Experiment with new things and begin living!
We don't stop playing because we grow old; We grow old because we stop playing.
George B. Shaw
By nourishing all aspects of our life we can learn what may be holding us back from success & why our bodies may not be allowing us to move forward.
At CBA we believe in Self-Care, this means giving back to yourself & allowing yourself to regain connection with your body & your inner self.
So many of us jump on the health bandwagon many times in our lives but never seem to make this new way of living stick... Why is that? I believe that we need to look deeper, we need to look at what areas of our lives (other than food & exercise) hamper our desire to become healthier. By looking into yourself at a deeper level & look at what stimulates your passion, how your body responds to stress, what relationship have you with yourself & others, and what self-care/self-love practices you do regularly, you can begin to realise the bigger picture to living a Healthy Lifestyle and start making simple changes to your daily activities that will enable you to develop into the person you were intended to be...It will help you be;
The Best Version of Yourself...
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
