How our ancestral influences affect our genes and health

I am so very excited that one our our InJoy! clients, Lorna Wall, sent this link to me which is an article in Discover magazine titled 'Grandma's experiences leave a mark on your genes'

It's full of information relating to what we talk about in our InJoy! pregnancy and baby yoga classes, and relays it from a scientific perspective. We are moving into a new paradigm of consciousness... everything is related... and to create long term health and wellbeing we just have to STOP thinking we can just treat symptoms, and instead appreciate a holistic perspective on health and happiness that takes into account our early babyhood, birth, prenatal and ancestral influences. 

So glad that more is being published on this - hoorah!

What every Dad to be needs to know with Mark Attwood & Rozy Kalliabetsos

I am just so thrilled to have had the opportunity to interview the legendary Mark Attwood, digital marketing genius, founder of and father of 5, about what he wishes every dad to be, should know. Was fortunate to meet Mark at an event at the Barbican London last month, and was super inspired by his talk on digital marketing and how businesses can make the most of online marketing. Mark is a man of many hats, though is perhaps best known for creating the first online skip hire (formerly Top Skips), which made him a cool £30million.

Mark and I got chatting after the event and somehow got into a chat around birth (so unusual for me) - well this man has A LOT to say about birth, birth politics and how birth shapes who we are, particularly, with regard to dads to be and how important it is that they become informed about the system properly, how it works, and how to navigate around it. Here is the fruits of our labour:

Preparing for a Positive Birth

Regarding preparing for a positive birth experience: what you want is coming - give thanks for this as though it is already here. The focused intention with the energy of gratitude is super powerful.

When we open ourselves to co create with the universe, wonderful things can happen.

Remember that the yoga is like our breath that sustains us through the ups and downs. None of us have control over what happens in birth as it is a co creation with the universe and also the will of the soul that comes, and of course, their purpose in this life.

What we can effect is our willingness to surrender to what is, and to trust that whatever will support our soul to grow in the best way at this present time, will happen.

Remember we run Birth Rehearsal Workshops in Croydon.

Love, Rozy
