Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Crossing Over

I miss travelling. I miss the thrill of going somewhere new. The last few years feels like we’ve had no adventures. No interesting and foreign lands to explore.  It’s been all about staying at home.

Longtime local yoga teacher Rachel Zinman was floored with a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes nearly 25 years into her global yoga teaching career.

Owing to the type of diabetes she had and its slow onset, she went on a search to try to cure the incurable using yoga and Ayurveda as her guide.

She says it took her six years to accept the diagnosis. In spite of surrendering to traditional allopathic medicine, she still champions the benefits of yoga for managing all types of diabetes.

Her new book, Yoga for Diabetes, How to Manage your Health with Yoga and Ayurveda, launched in the US to critical acclaim.

Named finalist in Indie Publishing’s forward review book of the year, this book is an all-local production with photos by David Young and graphic design by artist Maraya Rodostianos.

The book offers life-changing practices and a groundbreaking approach to managing diabetes. Join Rachel at the Book Room at Byron, May 2 from 6pm.

On the ground work assists evicted women 

We know the region has some of the highest rents, and highest housing costs in Australia. We all know that this has virtually eliminated affordable housing. We hear the stories of women and children being evicted, of couch surfing and living in cars.

Today is International Day of People with Disability

This language trend around People With a Disability has tended to emphasise the disability rather than the person, which can lead to derogatory labelling, depersonalisation or impersonal, collective references.
