The Blissful Blondie

The Blissful Blondie

A blend of Classical Pilates, athletic conditioning, and stretching with focused massage offered throughout each session.

The Pilates Method is an approach in mind & body integration that was created by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s. The fundamental principles focus on balance, concentration, control, centered awareness, fluid movements, and breath. Pilates enhances a core strength that increases flexibility, coordination and spacial awareness. The repertoire is performed as a mat class or on specialized equipment utilizing springs for resistance. Pilates will develop and enhance stamina, posture, alignment & core strength for elite performance to everyday activities.

Sometimes our glass is half full and sometimes it's half empty. That makes us human, but instead of focusing on what isn't in your cup decide right now you have all the tools you need to refill it. Everything you need is within you - courage, strangth, compassion and love. ๐Ÿ’—

Starting to run again, so working on training my leg stabilizers... Adductors, Glutes, Hamstring and Quads. Lunges with one foot on a moving surface adds in the extra work of strengthening the smaller muscles around the knees and ankles. Damn, I love Pilates!

I love working jumps on a light spring. Putting all the emphasis on your abs, moving your legs is just a distraction from the burn happening in your core ๐Ÿ”ฅ Come light it up with me twice more today at 9:30a & 12p at @kor180

A variation off the Classical Pilates movement 'Snake'. It's a 2 for 1 exercise:
Amazing side body stretch along with deep oblique strengthening and shoulder stabilization.

Accentuate the positive

Monday morning video skills are not as on point compared to later in the week ๐Ÿ˜‰ Single leg mountain climbers are all about working the glutes and core, so you get the idea....

Do sharks complain about Monday? NO. They're up early, biting stuff, chasing things, being scary...reminding everyone they're an effing shark. ๐Ÿฆˆ
Have an awesome start to your week friends ๐Ÿ’™

Working Arms + Abs today. This series really works the shoulder stabilizers and gets the obliques all at the same time. Work smarter, not harder ๐Ÿ˜‰

Today is a good day for turning a new leaf. ๐ŸŒฟ

#tbt to last weekend and the second day of my Durability Certification with @onnitacademy. Flowing thru a hip mobility series (video has been sped up a bit) #happyhips

"A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions."

Exactly two years ago to the day, I was on a plane headed to Nicaragua to complete my first Yoga Teacher Training intensive (i.e.: 19-days straight practicing and studying Yoga). Waking up at 5:20am every morning, thanks to the sounds of some extremely loud birds that liked to hang out in a tree just outside my bedroom window! and walking back to my condo around 6pm each night to eat dinner, then sleep and repeat again the following day. By day 12, we were all a little on edge for various reasons.

The teacher leading the training wasn't what I expected, the experience / training as a whole wasn't what I had hoped for, and one days towards the end of the training our entire group 14 people, sat in a room and argued for about 3 hours. Needless to say, not the image I had pictured in my head when I started on this journey.

side note: That is one of the things I LOVE so much about travel; it pushes you outside of your comfort zone, not everything goes as planned, and you are forced to adapt or be miserable.

The training ended 3-days early (which is an entirely different story) and I took off to Playa Majagual for 3-days, then to the island of Ometepe with three people from my training group, to go hike volcanoes on a tiny island.

I took this picture at a tiny shack on the beach on Playa Majagual, which was run by three generations of family.

Junior (on the left) was my amigo. His mom and grandmother cooked the food while he and his younger brother would take food and cervezas out to 4 tables in the sand. I ended up eating here 4 times while staying at Fincal...., about a 10min drive up a rocky, dusty road through the jungle. This is where my addiction to tostones began thanks to Junior's grandmother.

A lot of things have happened and changed in my life since stepping onto that plane, and I wouldn't change a thing. No matter how great, or how sh*tty, everything lead me here, to today, to the person I am. Still a work in progress, but I know myself so much better than I did two years ago and am grateful for the lessons learned and still learning (back to that whole work in progress idea).

Friday feels ๐ŸŒ™ open your heart and trust the process ๐Ÿ’™

Let's root for one another and watch each other grow ๐ŸŒฑ one of my favorite quotes on E M P A T H Y :

๐ŸŒฑ "When you plant the lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don't blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, more water or less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet if we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive effect at all, nor does trying g to persuade using reason or argument. That is my experience. No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you understand and show that you understand, you can love ans the situation will change. "
๐ŸŒฑThich Nhat Hanh

"Everything changes once we identify with being the witness to the story, instead of the actor in it." โžฐRam Dass
The witness is your awareness of your own thoughts, feelings and emotions. Witnessing is like waking up in the morning and then looking in the mirror and noticing yourself - not judging or criticizing, just neutrality observing the quality of being awake. That process of stepping back takes you out of being submerged in your experiences and thoughts and sensory input, and into self-awareness.

Shoulders, glutes and core....we're working all the stabilizer muscles today! Pilates helped me fund strength in these muscle groups and has changed the way I workout out in all other areas, whether it's in Yoga, on the bike, or lifting weights at @onnitgymatx ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ

Joy arises from within. And feeling loved is a fundamental human desire. Reminder to show love to yourself, and others. Make someone smile today and remind them they are loved. โค๏ธ

๐Ÿ’—๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’‹love fiercely, forgive quickly. And oh yeah, don't forget to grow.

"The secret of change is to focus all your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new". ๐ŸŒž Socrates

Where is your mind today? If it's in the past, remember : it's impossible to build anything new when your hands are still filled with yesterday's rubble.

Working on letting go of old hurts and focusing on building a bright future. ๐Ÿ’›
