Beauty & Wellbeing Crushes: Yogawoman + Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead.

I want to share with you two inspirational documentaries that I’ve had the pleasure of seeing in the past couple of weeks. I would recommend them to anyone who is interested in wellbeing and living a healthy lifestyle (that should be most of you!)

Yogawoman – The Film

This documentary follows the female journey of yoga throughout the world, and focuses on the ‘global good’ that yoga can foster. From cancer survivors, imprisoned women, those in poverty and those with a variety of health conditions, yoga can bring about the capacity for change and healing.

With an all star cast including Shiva Rea and Sean Corne, plus many other highly regarded practitioners, Yogawoman is a unique look at the practice that so many of us are a part of. Recommended to anyone interested in yoga! Available from the Yogawoman website.

Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead

Now here’s one I haven’t been able to stop raving about since watching it a week ago. Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead follows the 60-day juicing journey of soon-to-be-household-name Joe Cross. Starting out with obesity, a poor lifestyle and with chronic urticaria (persistant skin lesions), Joe decided to quit processed food altogether and only drink freshly pressed juice for 60 days while he drove across America, spreading the word about healing through green juice.

Not surprisingly his health increased exponentially, his lesions completely disappeared and he became fitter than ever before. All this while inspiring many others to make positive lifestyle choices as well.

Never fear though! You wont just be drinking juice for the rest of your life, it’s just a ‘Reboot’ to your system, afterwards you’ll be able to continue eating (hopefully healthy food!)

While I don’t need to lose weight, I’ve experienced amazing levels of wellbeing from green smoothies (little different to juice) and would heartily recommend anyone give either juicing or smoothies a go! Find out more about Joe Cross here!

Have you ever done a juice cleanse? Would you like to? Lets chat about this!

Be well,

    Fab! I bought a juicer just last week and I’m already feeling the benefits. On the advice of *Kitty Campion* I’m starting the day with a carrot, celery, lemon and ginger juice with a splash of flaxseed oil stirred through. You can feel the goodness coursing through your veins as soon as you drink it 🙂 would love to hear about other people’s ‘power juice’ recipes!

    Haven’t seen the yoga DVD, but Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead is awesome! It was not just an inspiration health-wise from what Joe achieves but was an inspiring life lesson on making every moment count. I am recommending it to EVERYONE.

    Oh Karen that’s fantastic – you will have to share with me what one you ended up getting!

    I love the sound of your daily morning juice, yum, what a wake-up call!!!

    Yay Russell! I agree, I think everyone should watch it 😀 X

  4. I can’t do green smoothies. I can’t STAND green stuff mixing with my bananas and mangoes. I do love a good juice though. Don’t know how I lived without my juicer before! I literally feel like I have an endless supply of energy since drinking fresh juice.

    I have seen Yogawoman a while ago at one of the earlier screenings. Its AMAZING! I was so inspired to go back to yoga as I have gotten to ‘busy’ to go and now I have been going as often as I can. I am taking my mum to see it this time around.

  6. Annette @ Wellness WA says:

    Hi Suzie,

    That’s great to hear! Glad you liked it, I’m sure your mum will love it too! x

  7. Kat says:

    Yogawoman is amazing. It completely changed my outlook and inspired me to get back to the mat.

    Treat yourself and see it when it open on Mothers day, you won’t regret it! x
