GOAL•SETTING|| How do you set your goals? Where do you find your focus? What brings you clarity? Where do you invest your energy & time? 🤔
I often struggle with workload overwhelm & within that struggle things can get a little messy & confusing. It’s easy to spread yourself too thin (I have been very guilty of this) & overcommit to plans, projects or people. In your head you know it’s not the right way to do things but your ego is often the one you listen to 🙄
This obviously has an impact on all other areas of life so to keep everything working harmoniously here are are a few good daily habits I swear by . . . 💫 Stretching. I know I keep on about this one but that’s because it works. A daily stretch will drastically reduce your stress levels by encouraging you to deepen your breathing, sending fresh blood & oxygen to your muscles & brain for more mental clarity & a much more limber, relaxed body. .
💫 Meditation. I actually now use @headspace several times a day because I like to be guided when I meditate. Morning. Afternoon. Bedtime. This allows me the perfect amount of time to focus purely on what I am trying to achieve, whether it be personal or work related. Since I began meditating I have become less reactive, more observant & I sleep a lot better. Working it into my day also gives me structure & routine which as a business owner is essential. As is the need to be professional & clear when dealing with issues surrounding your work. .
💫 Visualisation. One of the best tools I discovered when I was recovering from injury. You can visualise everything from how your body moves to healing pain & even how you want your life to be. I visualise success in my work (booking out a retreat or being offered a huge project) & silly things like where I will live in 10 years time! That way, I invite more positivity into my life. .
💫 Nature. Being surrounded & stimulated by nature & its colours & sounds is, for me one of the most healing things in the world. Plenty of science to back this up but for me its purely for peace of mind. When the mind is quiet, you can hear a lot more . . .

It takes real skill to match your face to your leotard! 🤣
Not my best look, but I had just taught ballet class in 33 degree heat! 😅❤️🙆🏼‍♀️🌴
Just putting this here as your reminder to stretch today. No, you won’t look as wiped out as I do afterwards. Quite the opposite in fact! You’ll feel calmer, more energised & have much more mental clarity . . . That’s why I’d like to schedule a LIVE STRETCH session for Sunday 27th May (time tbc) to give you guys some tips, simple sequences for you to remember and to ensure you keep your bank holiday weekend balanced & healthy. Who’s joining me?! 🙋🏼‍♀️ #livestream #stretching #instagramlive .

MENTAL•HEALTH•AWARENESS|| This week as you probably already know is #mentalhealthawareness week . . . I’m glad we’re talking about this more! We’ve all been there to some degree 😬 Something I’ve learnt over the years?! Don’t get in your own way. Be playful. Be adventurous. Travel. Spend time in nature. Find what fans the fire in your belly & become obsessed with it! Become obsessed with doing a good job but don’t take yourself too seriously. Mistakes happen so we learn & grow CONTINUOUSLY throughout life. Nothing stays the same (unless you do) & that’s healthy. Eat well. Exercise regularly. Sleep a lot. STRETCH DAILY 🙌🏻 Pretend you’re unicorn 🦄😉 Just be. Happy! Live with balance . . .
I’ll write a more specific @enavantballet blog post for #lifeinlegwarmers on why learning ballet is good for your mental health tomorrow but for now, let’s all go to the Maldives! @shangrilamaldives 💙💚💙💚💙💚

MORNING•RITUAL|| Stretching is just as important, if not more so than exercising! 🗣
I recently suffered whiplash after I fell down the stairs 🙄 so this, as well as rolling has been all I’ve been able to do due to the pain in my neck, shoulders, lower back & knee. Not only has stretching helped me in the obvious sense (eased the tension in those areas) but also from a mental standpoint; frustration at not being able to move when all you want to do (& what your job demands of you) IS move can be soul destroying!
Folding over & focussing on deep breathing as opposed to my annoyance & impatience has helped me remain calm & made me realise a few very important things. 1) my body feels like it’s changing & needs difference types of exercise & movement to keep itself safe & happy. 2) being healthy & happy is EVERYTHING to do with how you feel, not how you look! I know this point anyway but sometimes you need a little reminder . . . 🙂 So my main goal at the moment is to get better first before attempting to get back into my fitness routine but that routine will have to change in order to fall in line with the changes currently occurring in my body. Change is scary but it’s also the start of something new 🙌🏻💫 I’m ready!

#flashbackfriday to exactly this time last week on holiday with Mutti for her #budapestbirthday celebration! 🧡🙌🏻🏰💫🇭🇺🕍 This is when I am my most happy, when I’m seeing the world . . .
The purpose of my Ballet Retreats & Mini Retreats is to combine my biggest passions; people & places!
Dancing is all about being set free & being inspired by what we discover about ourselves. We are also free to explore the world! Let’s be inspired by what we discover out there as well . . .
Comment below where you’d love to travel to for a #balletretreat or even better, where you’d like me to visit next!!! 🙋🏼‍♀️🤷🏼‍♀️🙆🏼‍♀️ .
