coconut waterHi there, I am Helen and welcome to Barefoot and Raw!

Barefoot and Raw is the culmination of several things: barefoot running, yoga, raw food and a raw, natural lifestyle.

To explain a little more, my background is a personal fitness trainer, yoga teacher and long-time raw vegan foodie. I had my own personal training business for many years, before hubby and I decided to jump out of the box and search for a lifestyle that made more sense to us.

We headed off traveling in a caravan for several years and threw off the shackles that can often come with modern living. Learning to let go of material possessions, and live with less, was a life lesson that I will be forever grateful for.

Being fit and healthy is so important to me, especially now that I am a ‘certain’ age and things have the potential to slow down! I don’t want that to happen to me, and am more than happy to push the ticket and prove that getting older, and slowing down don’t have to go hand in hand.

Raw food allows me to keep my nutrition simple and goes hand in hand with my ‘back to basics’ lifestyle. Barefoot running gives me a connection to the ground that I never had in all my years of running with modern ‘running trainers’, while yoga has helped me find a space in the world that I am at peace with.
