Reset | Refresh I'm writing this and hoping you've all had a wonderful Summer break. I can't wait to hear what you've all been up to. I'm looking forward to returning to the Studios over the next few weeks. Summer is a wonderful time to relax although we can find that our daily mindful movement can go on the back burner for a month or two. A new term with a few tweaks to the timetable will enable all of us to get the movement back into our bodies. Have you managed to keep up your Pilates/movement throughout the summer? It's been wonderful to read the comments within the Online Membership Facebook group. It's great to know that you are getting the sessions done and enjoying the results.

Summer Term MOVE.Studio Re-opening! I can't tell you how wonderful it is to deliver the news that as of the 7th June 2021 I will be back in the Studio delivering face-to-face sessions for you all. Alongside this news, we also have some additions to the MOVE Studio timetable as well as welcoming Sarah Miller into the Studio alongside me. As our Online Members will know, Sarah Miller has been teaching the Classical Pilates sessions during the last term after qualifying last year. For those of you who don't know her, here's a brief biography of her qualifications and skills set, a very welcome addition to the MOVE team.

Have a wonderful Christmas break. Well, what a year of changes and pivoting it's been here! Back in March I really didn't expect to have spent so much time getting used to so much technology and to be seeing you all via zoom but it has worked! It's kept us connected, it's kept us moving and it's been the way in which we have had to come together for the much of 2020. I invested in equipment I hadn't expected to be purchasing as well as learning all about Facebook lives and getting the classes to as many of you as possible. I'm sure many of you had never expected to be hearing me in your living rooms or bedrooms so frequently either! NEW YEAR PLANS! From Monday 4th January we have a variety of 6 week online courses that are taking place via Zoom.

The answer is resounding YES! I've been enjoying bringing you November's self-care challenge through my Facebook page and we are only halfway through the month. I hope you've been gaining some insights into new habits that you can take away from it. Tailor it to what you need as I cover a wide range of challenges from diet and nutrition through to specific exercises that target a certain area of your body. alongside breathe work. So far we've covered some delicious smoothie offerings, essential foot care, taking time to rest effectively as well as my bi-weekly Facebook live bonus sessions within my Facebook page. If you haven't joined us already, you can access the page here. Lockdown 2.0 has brought it's fair share of stress and uncertainty to this month. As I type my local school has just closed its doors so that brings about its own challenges!! It's increasingly important to ensure we give ourselves time to nurture from the inside out, take that extra 20 minutes to do a breathing exercise to ensure you can be more grounded and able to deal with all that the day brings. I'd love to know what you are finding helpful within the challenge or anything you'd like me to cover in the next half of the month...

Sunday habits to prepare you for the week ahead If you are anything like me you will spend most of Sunday worrying about all the things you need to do in the week ahead rather than relaxing and enjoying your Sunday. Sunday is the perfect day to schedule and reset.  With that in mind, here are a few Sunday habits to help you prep for a new week with less stress. Write a to-do list for the week Think about what you have to do next week. Don’t worry about prioritising, just write. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with everything you need to do, this will give you a clear vision and prepare you for what’s to come. After you do that, you can start prioritising. Write down a schedule After you write your to-do list, write down your schedule, appointments, meetings and other things. This will make you feel more prepared to handle what’s to come. And aside from scheduling things you “have” to do, don’t forget to make room for fun things or even self-care activities, as well. Give meal prep a go Do you ever get home from a long day at work and struggle to decide what you’re making for dinner? Or maybe you actually decided but soon realised there’s a key ingredient missing.  Meal prepping will save you a lot of time and stress. Whether that is simply thinking about the meals you’re having in the upcoming week, or taking a step further and actually preparing things in advance. Plan your outfits for the week This is not only a habit...
