Hi,  I'm Karin Hagberg

I have been in the health, wellness and fitness industry for over 25 years now.
At this point in time, I feel incredibly blessed to have persevered on my life's journey, as I am still spending my days doing what I love; working in the field I enjoy, with amazing fellow human beings and being able to create what I want. 

But the journey I have been on has not always been easy. For years, I felt like I was pushed to my limits, not just physically but also mentally and emotionally. I believed that I was really all alone in my struggles and felt quite isolated. The physical and emotional pain I experienced was at times overwhelming.
I really thought I was doing all I could to improve my situation. I had adopted a healthy lifestyle with healthy eating, exercise, meditation and more. I also spent a huge amount of time learning and having experiences. 
Even though I was living a healthy lifestyle, eating healthy food, exercising and doing meditation.  I was still lacking in energy and experienced pain. I also spent a huge amount of time and resources into courses, programs and products. Although this changed and improved my situation a lot, it was not until I learnt about me as an individual and my HealthType that I started making huge shifts.


As a result of learning and becoming aware of what suits my health type and accepting and loving myself , I started transforming in so many ways, both physically,  mentally and emotionally. 
I truly feel I have transformed my wellness, not just on a physical level but equally as much mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
I feel a sense of balance and I want the same for other people as well. It is a feeling of freedom.

To be honest, I am still incredibly grateful for the challenges I have had, because this has brought me to where I am now; where I get to inspire, motivate and support people - I help them transform their wellness.
I really feel I am living my mission. My programs combine the science of health with the skill of coaching to enable the client to discover where they want to be and why and then have the strategies and tools to aim for their dreams.

I am excited that you are here and I welcome you to join my group of empowered well-beings so that you too can also learn how to find freedom and ultimate wellness, just as I have through a combination of the science of health in combinations with realistic and sustainable change to feel amazing in life.
The knowledge and information being shared in our exclusive and loving community will empower you to transform your wellness.

Being Guided by the Light of Truth Within




In the labyrinthine journey of life, amidst the tumult of conflicting voices and the shadows of uncertainty, there exists an unwavering beacon that illuminates our path—the light of truth within. It is a guiding force, an eternal flame that resides deep within the recesses of our being, ever-present and unyielding.
At the heart of our existence lies a reservoir of wisdom, a divine spark that whispers truths beyond the realm of the tangible. It is the essence of our soul, the core of our being, and the source of our innate intuition. This inner light, though often obscured by the noise of the external world, remains a steadfast companion, ready to illuminate our way when we choose to heed its call.

To be guided by the light of truth within is to embark on a journey of self-discovery and self-realization. It requires courage to confront the shadows that dwell within us, to unravel the layers of conditioning and illusion that veil our perception. Yet, in the depths of introspection, we uncover profound insights and profound truths that resonate with the essence of our being.

In the presence of this inner light, we find clarity amidst confusion, purpose amidst chaos, and serenity amidst turmoil. It is a beacon of hope in times of despair, a source of strength in times of weakness, and a wellspring of inspiration in times of doubt. When we attune ourselves to its gentle guidance, we align with the divine rhythm of the universe, flowing effortlessly with the currents of life.

Moreover, being guided by the light of truth within is not merely a solitary journey but a communion with the collective consciousness of humanity. It is a recognition of the interconnectedness of all beings, a realization that we are not separate but intricately woven into the fabric of existence. In honoring our own truth, we honor the truth of others, fostering empathy, compassion, and unity in a world too often divided by fear and ignorance.

As we navigate the labyrinth of existence, let us remember that the light of truth within is our most reliable compass, guiding us towards our highest potential and deepest fulfillment. Let us cultivate the courage to listen to its whispers, the humility to learn from its wisdom, and the faith to trust in its guidance. For in the embrace of our inner light, we find not only illumination but also liberation—a boundless freedom that transcends the confines of space and time.

To be guided by the light of truth within is to walk the path of authenticity, integrity, and grace. It is a journey of self-discovery and self-mastery, leading us to the realization of our true nature and the fulfillment of our sacred purpose. May we always strive to honor this inner light and allow it to shine brightly, illuminating our way and illuminating the world with its radiant brilliance.

The benefits of Foam Rolling


I love foam rolling! In the last few weeks I have been spending anywhere from 4 - 30 minutes rolling on my foam roller and I am feeling amazing now! I realise that I have had so much tension in my fascia. As a Remedial Massage Therapist and Pilates Instructor I recommend foam rolling to many of my clients due to its benefits.

Foam rolling is also known as self-myofascial release. It involves using a cylindrical piece of foam to massage and release tension in muscles. 

Here are the benefits of foam rolling:

1. Improved flexibility and range of motion: Foam rolling helps to stretch and lengthen muscles, which can improve flexibility and range of motion. This can be especially beneficial for athletes and individuals engaging in regular physical activity.

2. Reduced muscle soreness and tension: Foam rolling can help to alleviate muscle soreness and tension by breaking up knots and adhesions in the muscles, which can develop from overuse or injury.

3. Enhanced recovery: By promoting blood flow to the muscles, foam rolling can aid in the recovery process after exercise or physical activity. This can help to reduce recovery time and improve overall performance.

4. Prevention of injury: Foam rolling can help to identify areas of tightness or imbalance in the muscles, which can be addressed before they lead to injury. By regularly foam rolling, individuals can maintain better muscle health and reduce the risk of injury.

5. Improved circulation: Foam rolling helps to stimulate blood flow to the muscles, which can promote the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the tissues. This can aid in muscle repair and recovery.

6. Relaxation and stress relief: Foam rolling can have a relaxing effect on the body and mind, similar to receiving a massage. This can help to reduce stress and promote overall feelings of well-being.

7. Cost-effective and convenient: Foam rolling can be done almost anywhere and requires minimal equipment, making it a cost-effective and convenient way to improve muscle health and performance.

Overall, foam rolling is a valuable tool for enhancing flexibility, reducing muscle soreness, and improving overall muscle health and performance. 
I definitely  recommend you giving it a go and if you need help - please reach out.




 
The rejuvenating power of cold water dips


A few years ago I started cold dipping in the ocean at Torquay as I had heard that cold therapy could have many benefits. We entered the ocean 6.30am in the morning and often got to watch the most spectacular sunrises. What I noticed was improvements in mood and immunity. People around me got winter colds etc but not me. 

Since moving to the Alpine area of Bright, I’ve had many dips in the Ovens River. The water in the Ovens river is very cold and refreshing. 

If you are considering starting cold dipping, here are 10 benefits (and I experienced all these benefits too):

1. Improved circulation: Cold water immersion can help constrict blood vessels, which may enhance circulation and blood flow throughout the body.

2. Boosted metabolism: Exposure to cold water can stimulate the body's metabolism, potentially leading to increased calorie burning and fat loss over time.

3. Enhanced immune function: Cold water dips may strengthen the immune system by activating the body's natural defence mechanisms.

4. Increased energy levels: Cold water exposure can invigorate the body and mind, leading to a feeling of increased energy and alertness.

5.  Reduced muscle soreness : cold water immersion may help alleviate muscle soreness and inflammation, making it a popular recovery method among athletes.

6. Improved mood: Cold water dips can trigger the release of endorphins and other feel-good neurotransmitters, leading to a mood boost and reduced feelings of stress or anxiety.

7. Better skin and hair health: Cold water can help tighten pores, reduce oiliness, and improve circulation to the skin, promoting a healthy complexion. It can also make hair appear shinier and more vibrant.

8. Increased resilience to stress: Regular exposure to cold water can train the body to better handle stress, both physically and mentally, by activating the body's adaptive stress response.

9. Potential pain relief: Cold water immersion may temporarily numb pain receptors, providing relief from minor aches and pains.

10. Enhanced mental clarity and focus:  Cold water dips can sharpen mental focus and clarity by stimulating the nervous system and increasing blood flow to the brain.

Cold dips offer numerous potential benefits. 
Remember to it listen to your body and gradually acclimate to the cold water exposure to avoid any adverse reactions. If you have any underlying health conditions or concerns, consult with a healthcare professional before incorporating cold water immersion into your routine.
