One of the most fundamental benefits of a movement practice, is the ability for it to be an avenue for self expression.
Although our movement practices may be similar once we have our foundational movement patterns we can begin to express ourselves individually from the most deepest level.
So often when doing so, we can then also discover new movement patterns that we may not have done or even thought to have done previously.
This way of expression in movement can bring the most beautiful sense of freedom just as in any form of art. You can combine it with music and bring all your creativity and passion forward into it. If you haven’t already done so, give it a try. It’s a great way to play and experiment also.
To achieve your exercise goals, consistency is key. Here are my 5 top tips to help you exercise consistently so you can be sure to see and feel the difference.
1.Be clear on you outcomes, both short and long term– rather than goals set intentions for outcomes as to how it will help you and remain focused on the short term first as the long term will come along with these.
2. Set Daily plans – schedule in your workouts as a regular pattern, make it as consistent as any other regular daily routine.
3. Prioritise – For your exercise to become and remain consistent it has to be a priority, stick to it like any other important commitment or appointment.
4. Focus on the feel good factor– Almost immediately your energy and mood will lift from exercising. Focus on this to keep your motivation levels high.
5.Connect– whether it be with others, your goal, motivation or however you choose to stay consistent, stay connected to it and maintain your focus, joy and enthusiasm. 😊
Stay consistent, enjoy the process and feel the difference 🙏💛💫

Presence is so simple we often miss it. Always remember it’s importance, remember the gift of life is all in the presence. It is here that we see all and can be all we can be. Drop all else as unnecessary 🙏💕
During the winter months maintaining positive habits can be difficult, however all the more important.
Keeping fit and healthy during the winter will help you to stay mobile and maintain good health, where you may otherwise be more likely to get under the weather.
Sometimes the weather may seem off-putting, when you have to make your way to the gym for example. However remind yourself always of how important it is and how good you will feel afterwards. Stay positive and keep up with your positive habits.
So often in our busy lives we can be caught up by where we have been, or where we have to be, rather than simply being.
This has become such a way of life for many that it’s important to learn to be fully present once again, so how can we practice presence.?
Practicing presence first has to be realised as important for our health and wellbeing, more important than any past or future moment and truth is, this moment is really the only moment there ever is, and why it is most important. For if we miss it we are missing out on life.
The greatest way to train ourselves to be more immersed again in the now and practice presence fully, is through our senses.
Our senses are interacting with the world around us in the now and the more we become in touch with the sights, sounds, smells, tastes and sensations all around us the more present we can become.
Make it a daily practice to become absorbed in one or more of your senses on a daily basis as a mindful meditation and observe how it can help you to become more constantly present.
