🧘🏽♀️🦄💫 Yoga isn't about touching your toes, or how flexible your body is!! It’s about learning to move your body through its appropriate range of motion, gaining awareness of your body & mind! 🔮 ✨💫When you practice Prasarita Padottanasana (Wide-Legged Standing Forward Bend), the aim is to fold forward from the hips so that you can stretch your hamstrings without straining your back... . 🌜💫It DOESN’T matter how close you get to the ground!! ....What matters is that you learn to stabilize your legs and your spine while you bend forward.... 🧘🏽♀️🙏🏽🌟✨When you bring your full concentration to the actions of the pose, you’ll find a very focused state where all ur other concerns float away!! 🌕✨🦜This is called ekagrata, or one-pointed attention. It’s a state of mind that creates a skillful pose with all its physical and energetic benefits & also cultivates an ability to shift out of the multitasking, overactive mind-set that this world demands of us . 🦄✨🧘🏽♀️The more often you practice, the more you will be able to concentrate on one thing at a time ! Peace, love, forward folds!!🧘🏽♀️🌟💫✨
Kneeling hugs are a great way to challenge the core & balance while working the pecs & the top of the arms 💪 🔥
You may have already done these (or a variation) with me this week if not there is always Friday! 😜

Some of our lovely Newdigate yoga ladies in warrior yesterday! We are only half way through this 6 week course and are already amazed at the amount of feedback about the positive effects our riders are seeing both on and off the horse - decrease in chronic joint pains, increased flexibility and interestingly much improved sleep the night of the yoga classes! Can’t wait to follow these ladies on their journeys #liveandloveyoga#yogaforriders#corestrength#yoga#surreyriders#inspirationalpeople
#workoutwednesday courtesy of the legend that is @zoec2009. Zoe came to me several months ago a very different person she is now. I'm sure she won't mind me saying, she wasn't particularly confident in the gym & the certainly hadn't lifted heavy before!
Several months later, she doesn't go a session without breaking a personal best, she is teaching friends about the importance of technique and only going from strength to strength!
Here are a few snippets from our last session, breaking a new Pb on a 50kg Deadlift, working through some tough single leg step ups & finishing off with some gorgeous RDL's!

At around the 10/11 week post-pregnancy mark I was changing in shape quite a bit and decreasing weight slowly in proportion. Still noticeably different than normal and it was a squeeze to get into those tights! Really had to pull in the tummy as much as possible.
But that was difficult in itself with severe abdominal separation with around 6cm gap in my abs. (It's the weirdest thing, you literally feel your muscles have split apart.) At this time I was only able to walk properly because for the first 8 weeks my pelvis was internally bruised, my pelvis was out of alignment and my tailbone was badly bruised. Not a nice combo. And not a nice thing to find 'sitting' so terribly uncomfortable.
I literally would hobble around at home the first couple of months and bought myself a chair on an angle so it changed the angle of my hips. Not fun.
As mentioned on my previous post here's what I did to release the baby weight. I'll pop these notes in each post incase you have not read the others related to this topic. >> Here's my secret formula for losing the baby weight and getting back my health & strength: ➡️ Prepped fruit, salads, nuts for snacking at night while expressing milk/feeding ➡️ Took around one quarter off my portion sizes for every meal even if it meant I was a bit hungry ➡️ Walked every day for 10-30 mins ➡️ Pilates and bodyweight exercises for 10-30 mins/day ➡️ Listened to my body and became patient in the process
In terms of 'pelvic floor' I would do drawing up through pelvic floor and hold for 5 seconds a few times a day, then try it walking, standing, laying down. To this day my pelvic floor are not the same. I don't believe they ever will be without surgery after a traumatic birth despite my knowledge I have in working the 'core.' I'm happy it's improved though.
At this stage I really wanted to get filming a couple of vids, which is where this pic was taken, but I found it so hard to support my body weight and do even 10 minutes showing post-natal exercises here!
I learned it takes time and effort to really build yourself back from the ground up.
What's your journey been? >>
Här får du tre chanser att ge dig själv en riktig magsugare, som du förhoppningsvis kommer ligga dubbelvikt av glädje över många gånger! 💪 • Crunch with a twist: Ja, den vanliga situpen. Men om du twistar lite på väg upp och ner och varför inte lägger till en boll eller hantel också når du magmusklerna på ett lite nytt sätt. Kommer du märka. • Vertical chair knee raise. Det kan vara skönt att slippa ligga på golvet, erövra dipsmaskinen och prova det här istället. Tänk på att hålla emot på vägen ner och att aldrig gå riktigt hela vägen ner. • Reverse crunch. Hitta en bänk och lägg dig till rätta. Den här övningen finns i en mängd varianter. Reverse står för att du inte lyfter nacken under övningen utan bara nedre delen av ryggen. Släpp inte ner benen i nedre läget, sträck ut dem istället så du får motstånd i hela rörelsen.
Let that core do the work....... keeping it engaged is one of the hardest things todo, especially when trying to maintain your balance.
Starting with the V sit, love this exercise, I used to really struggle with it. But with my increased core strength and stability I'm finding it a lot easier to perform.
Then going into the leg raises whilst maintaining that V site 😬😬 I'm always taking that core exercise a bit further, what else can I do to replicate that burn.
More videos coming...... all exercises can be performed at home. No gym or equipment required

Wieder mal mit #plankvariations Gas gegeben ❤. Es gibt so viele schöne Variationen, ich liebe es auch bei meinen Kunden zu beobachten wie sie sich von der einfachsten Variation zu den ganz Schwierigen hochtrainieren. Oft höre ich beim Trainingsstart bei gewissen Übungen "Das kann ich nicht", klar aber deswegen seid ihr ja bei einem Personal Trainer - um die Übungen zu erlernen und zu trainieren und von mal zu mal wird sich die Ausführung der Übung verbessern, die Übung kann schwieriger gestaltet werden und es macht richtig Spaß diese Fortschritte zu sehen und motiviert nochmal so richtig ❤. .
1. Unterarmstütz am Bosu abwechselnd die Arme nach vorne wegstrecken
2. Seitstütz am Bosu - oberes Bein hoch/tief bewegen. .
