Coconut Jam – The New Taste
The texture is a bit like firm Nutella, but the flavour is something else entirely. It tastes caramelly/fudgy to start off with and then the coconut flavour comes through, slightly toasted and just incredible. It really is not like anything else I have ever tasted.
Raising the Bar
A really tasty bar stuffed with organic ingredients, the Active Green bar is a pretty fantastic snack when you’re on the go. They’re raw, gluten-free and have 16g of protein in each 75g bar. For those with a sweet tooth, they have chocolate covered one too. A chocolate bar that is good for you.

Be Good To Yourself
Test Your Sunshine Levels
Among other things, vitamin D helps to absorb calcium and promote bone growth. For at least half the year, Irish people don’t get much vitamin D from the sun. Nutricentric offer a vitamin D test, which you can use to assess your levels and ensure your body has everything it needs for optimum function all year round.
The Book of Hope

The book features a series of uplifting and inspirational quotes. Yoga is about more than just stretching. Mella’s work with the Hope Foundation shows the true meaning of yoga – compassion and love.
Minding Mum is a simple yet revolutionary concept – mums need to focus on themselves as well as their children. A new book on taking care of yourself allowing you to give more. A great gift for any new mother.
The yoga Sonatas
The dazzling Kitty Maguire teaches Yin Yoga which helps quieten the mind while releasing stress and tension in your
body. At the same time the sublime Anna Marcossi treats you to some amazing cello playing helping you to really let go and find stillness. It’s yoga and cello – yocella.

With Crystal Light Therapy, the vibration from the crystal resonates with its corresponding chakra in the body and ‘tunes’ the imbalanced chakra to its normal frequency, balancing the body’s energy.

13 Nov 2016, Dublin.
Integration and wholeness is the path of spiritual progression. Our divinity and humanity must merge to become one. By bravely exposing both their humanity and divinity to the world, and teaching the world how to integrate the two by virtue of example, people must begin to unite the humanity and divinity within themselves.
