I ALWAYS stretch after exercise. Even after a walk (which according to some of my friends, is not "real" exercise- ha what would they know?! Haha I walked over 300 km around Europe and it felt amazing). I've always loved to stretch; it made me feel light and free and simply better. This is what initially drew me to yoga: that feeling of lightness following a practice. What followed from there was a love affair where I learned about all the 8 limbs of yoga. ✨ Getting back to flexibility, however, I stretch after each #F45 class. My favourite pose/stretch is a three-legged downward facing dog, it really gets to my hamstring and the entire leg really, followed by opening of the hip and of course low anjaneyasana (or low lunge). It's so good. Here we are doing just that. Not quite sure how this became a 'yoga' photo but I would never complain about that ✨

As authentic as it gets: exhausted & sweaty, challenging myself, completing the second round. I couldn't live without exercise πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ™„πŸ‹οΈβ€β™€οΈ. I rewarded myself and my body (other than with this class)  with a beautifully painful (ha) remedial massage- a must after a month away exploring Europe, countless hours on the plane/train/bus/car and my usual busy lifestyle since being back ✈️️

My second yoga practice since I got back from overseas. This time @moveyoga, one of my favourite places in Melb. I have been really struggling with my jet lag. It has surprised me just how much. It didn't help that I had about 4 hours sleep the night I landed (after a mammoth trip back of some 35 odd hours- it was almost as awful as it sounds- I did make friends though) and literally haven't stopped since (beach walks, classes, catch-ups, hens night, and work! - the last of which has been extremely demanding with multiple advices due and conferences to be held). I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I found that the heat (It was a hot yoga practice) really helped me with the jet lag (I hope! Or maybe I'm still on a yoga high whilst on my way home post class). Even if it didn't assist with the jet lag ("which is denied" to use legalese haha), it sure assisted with my shoulder. It was much better. I just need to learn to take it easy and not push myself so much. It's not the ego, it's me wanting to do everything, yesterday. Oh and this is @bobbyhancock.yoga , the yogi teacher whose classes are different every single time, interesting and fun (!). I made him do this. He may or may not have enjoyed it as much as me βœ¨πŸ™ #namaste

In honour of the incredible @alexia_clark adding me to the enormous list of fans on her story appreciating her work, here I am trying to work my bum with some Pilates barre movements (using the bench just like Alexia 😍... or, let's be honest, a long way away from her technique and magic). Prior to going away I did a lot of cardio and functional training. I assumed that diet alone would give me all that I required in terms of nutrients and protein. And so I did not replenish the protein for muscle growth and recovery. Stress undoubtedly contributed and... my previously bootylicious bum (modest, I know) took a holiday of its own. I've now invested in some protein (@pranaon) which is plant based and delicious! and will get to my barre obsession as soon as this jet lag wears off! .

I'm still very jet lagged. I just knew that despite my body craving the joy of (most of day) sleep, I had to get to yoga. I also knew that the magnetic energy of the incredible Kimberley would give me exactly what I needed. I was right. I walked in feeling like a zombie and walked out feeling joyous and alive. The icing on the cake was sharing the practice with Cassie, Kellie and Duangjai πŸ’•πŸ™ Jet lag won in the end but without the yoga, I would have been miserable most of the day πŸ™

Celebrating this beautiful "bride" -to-be's upcoming "wedding" to "Ben"- take that peg game! No matter the jet lag (and being about 2 hours late because I literally couldn't get up off the couch), I wouldn't miss it for the world 🌎 Both Loufa and Jakey-Jake came to my first yoga class and it meant so much. In honour of our friendship and in celebration of the events to come, we are dancer's-posing and warrior-ing towards the beautiful and "witty" tree-poser herself πŸ˜πŸ’•

Flashback to a week ago when I was warm. Ah Melbourne, Springtime is wonderful when it feels like springtime. At least I brought the sunshine back with me πŸ’• Here I am making shapes. Not even I knew where I was going with this one. Yoga does that to me; I love movement, trying new things and seeing things from a new perspective πŸ™ It doesn't always work out but then (1) it's a matter of perspective and (2) no regrets! - "better an oops than a what if", always .

Super delicious breakfast made with organic rolled oats cooked with water and a dash of almond milk, kiwifruit, banana and blueberries. I added a tablespoon of hempseed & organic natural almond butter from @thegreenscoopbulk for extra protein and some cinnamon and coconut flakes for even more deliciousness. Yum .

You know this can only mean one thing: I'm back! Incredibly jet lagged but happy to be reunited with my babies. The return trip took 36 hours from my wake up call to the moment I walked through the door. It involved a redirected flight and lots of plane time. It also involved making new friends on the plane and getting to read more of my book. I was very lucky to have someone pick me up from the airport 7 hours after I was actually supposed to land. Today I took it easy by going for a slow beach walk and did an awesome barre class @soulbarre - I really struggled. Trying to get back to the swing of things ASAP. One thing's for sure: coffee is my saviour (Thank you @christinejenniferr for looking after them - they miss you! This was taken for you! πŸ“Έ)

And so many more reasons.... I reflect on those on my journey back home. The flight attendant I have just chatted to has been amazing. She changed my seats to block the seat next to me on my flight to Doha and then gave me the emergency seat on the long haul to Melbourne. Good energy attracts good energy. So grateful for this holiday and the experiences. πŸ™πŸ’• see you back home friends and thank you to everyone who contributed to this amazing trip- both overseas and at home πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’› DziΔ™kuje kochani i do zobaczenia 😘

It is hard to believe that once upon a time I did not see the value in using a foam roller. These things are amazing. I've been lucky enough to spend the last couple of days at a fitness centre where I was able to dedicate some considerable time to stretching, and using these foam roller babies. My absolute favourite is to roll my upper back. It releases all the tension and feels absolutely sublime (as per the photo). Here I am enjoying my last day in Wroclaw with @zuzka_april before a 3 am wake up for the airport. I'm dreading it to be honest, along with the 30 hour trip back home (My ride better be there to pick me up haha). But I feel good (my metabolic age is 22 after all !!!), have a great book which I am yet to finish and a plane pillow without which I couldn't survive. I'm also on a high after eating more amazing food today including probably the best chocolate ice cream I've ever had, spending time with those I love, and receiving a little response message from the one and only Alexia Clark after I mentioned her in my story. Sooo lucky πŸ€ πŸ€πŸ€

At the beginning is as good a place to start as any. I don't believe in excuses; they'll always be there. They serve no purpose other than to limit our potential. Sure I may still be learning technique and sure the ego may be a little bruised because I'm used to training hard and knowing what I'm doing. Therefore lifting light weights or just the bar may not be all that 'cool'. But rational thought needs to be applied to all exercise. I value my health and try new things constantly. I don't want to be injured and I don't really worry what people think when they look at me struggle to lift 5 kilos haha Ok so that's an exaggeration but honestly, exercise and being active can be so much fun. People will think what they think. That's more of a reflection of where they're at than you and besides, most people actually mean well (I often get asked about people trying out yoga and worrying about how they'll be perceived- I ALWAYS tell them the truth: that the practice is about them and no one else and that true yogis will never judge but feel almost pride when they see others progress- I know I do). No one is amazing at everything they try. I get inspired by looking at others do great things, not intimidated. It doesn't make me feel inferior but capable. Happy Hump Day everyone. I'm off to grow the πŸ‘πŸ‘ on my last day in Poland πŸ‡΅πŸ‡± .
