Day 2 – The pilot to Real PilatesLike0

My second day session with Delinda at Real Pilates Studios was back to basics, with a bum and thigh twist. The main aim of the session was for me to reconnect with the 5 basic principles of Pilates, while finding out my strengths and weaknesses. The reason Real Pilates Studios has proposed Delinda on my first sessions is because she is known to be the right person to train with if you are focusing on weight loss, shaping hips & thighs and nutrition.

The fun element comes next as we take that analysis, stepping through the weeks and climb the ladder of intensity, in order tone, shape and make those scales become “your friend”.

“I love your shape and know that with dedicated time I will shape it, strengthening the core but giving that bum, the lift. ”

You can imagine how my face expression changed, knowingly that I would need to quote her on that for everyone to read!

“With passion comes many things and I can tell that you are passionate about this challenge.” Now THAT was just perfect and just like that my smile was right back! To be fair, today was a good session. I was nervous at first, but I did find myself up to the challenge and focusing a lot. Trying to breath in the good and out the bad. I can tell Delinda was trying really hard to make my session count as much as possible. We went a bit overtime but that only meant good for me! I left feeling determined, ready and all juiced up for our next session tomorrow with Elisha on the Pilates Core class at the Palm Strip studio!

  • I hosted the 6th social media workshop in Dubai today with such wonderful entrepreneurs - it lasted 6 hours! Reminded me on how I first started and how much I love my job!! Throwing it back to summer in Portugal where I took two weeks off and reminded myself how much we all need to step back from social pressure once in a while. 
2 more workshops to go for this month! Get in touch if you would like to join ❤️ Happy weekend!
  • Your addiction to over-thinking will come back to haunt you... Less thinking and more living 👊🏻

  • I found a little oasis in the middle of the desert 🌵 
What you don’t see on instagram is that I have sunk my feet in the sand so deep many times - ( Now that’s a workout for the year) I had my drone losing balance in high winds which resulted in my heart sinking over a dozen times, and have sand everywhere!! Even between my teeth!! But it’s all good :) Happy Sunday 😊
  • The outdoor season is back in Dubai!!! I’m so happy to have @zeebalife finally united with me! Picking me up when I sink in the sand after she’s done laughing! 😂

  • Almost 2 years ago when I took this picture after staying a week in @sixsensesninhvanbay in Vietnam. I remember I was debating whether or not I should take the shot because it was done on my iPhone and a broken tripod. Where you following my journey then? It’s feels like another lifetime but I still remember every detail of this trip as if it was yesterday. It’s funny how a single song or a picture can bring back so many memories and how some surprisingly fade so quickly.
  • I’ve got a thousand things to say to you... and a thousands reasons not to...
  • No matter what they say... There is no such thing as work-life balance. Everything worth fighting for, unbalances your life and that's the truth. So you just make it work. 💕
  • What if your pillow could collect all your dreams and in the morning, you can connect it to a screen and watch it all over again?
