Sorry To Keep You Kuwait-ing

So, this is my first blog in a while (as you may or may not be aware).

Why?

Simply because I was battling ME (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), trying to overcome this illness whilst trying to start my life again and a new life in Kuwait. It was a bit too much to do those things and commit to writing regularly too.. (Soz about that, and more on that later).

But, here I am.

I am healthier, stronger and happier than ever. I am glad I took the time out and practised what I preach.

 

So what I have been up to?

I moved to Kuwait for a year, I have been experimenting with balancing nutrition, meditation and movement to heal my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and develop a method that is easy to follow to help other people who are suffering from any type of fatigue, big or small. It’s called the POMME Method and I hope to release it at some point this year. I’m going to be blogging about this here.. www.POMMEMethod.com and sharing tips in Instagram too.. https://www.instagram.com/apommeaday/

I’ve also launched CatchTheYogi.com which you have to check out!

 

What else have I been doing?

nuow6836I have the pleasure of teaching one of the kindest and most accepting communities. I enjoy going to work each day to teach the ladies that come to our studio (its a women’s only facility, so that the women can uncover). These ladies make my day, ‘ery-damn-day’.

When I first moved here it was a struggle to teach people how to connect their minds to their body and gain control of their movement patterns- Note.. People here like to move fast, sweat and finish class as quickly as possible. This isn’t Pilates.. And it took a little bit of time to convince people that it’s a good idea to SEQUENTIALLY FLEX YOUR SPINE and use your breath to facilitate movement.. But I got there after about 4 months of not sleeping at night (Laughs, and then cries) BUT, now I have a following I’m very proud of and I love the questions and advice I am asked for daily.

It was also a struggle to deal with the heat my friends. Let’s discuss what 54 degrees feels like to a white English girl who sweats under a coat in the snow (not ideal). I arrived at the end of Winter and for 7 months, it progressively got warmer and for someone that loves to go outside and walk everywhere, I did feel like a caged animal. But thankfully it’s cooler right now and I’m getting my walks in. Plus all that time inside means I have had a lot of time to focus on my work and it’s been an incredible time for my career.

 

Conclusion

When I was first asked if I would move to Kuwait, my response was.. ‘where is it?’ and then ‘Probably not’! But this has been one of the best things I have ever done. I have grown in confidence and happiness (sadly not height) and incredibly I have healed from something I was told I could not and I am extremely grateful to be where I am, right now.

I try to inspire people to listen to their bodies, to connect and do what is truly right for you, not what you think is right. It’s been a test of discipline to follow my own advice and I’m so proud that I did… It worked! 😉

  1. Fantastic to hear how things have worked out for you Charlette!
    The struggles and then the insights we gain are part of our journeys. I get it now that we need the contrasts to know what we do or don’t want.
    The pic of the ladies you teach is great!
    Best news of all is that through allowing yourself time and helping other people you have healed yourself!!
    Whoop whoop!
    Keep up the good work girl 😊
