You all know I love finding new workout regimens so when @thefityogitrainer
went on sale in the new year, @yogoskenz
‘s e-guide was in my shopping cart in a matter of seconds. I typically do 30-45min of HIIT and another 30-45min of yoga so finding a program that fits both HIIT and yoga into a 1-hour session was PERFECT 👌🏻. So, what is it?
💪🏻 A 1-month training program that meshes HIIT and yoga.
💪🏻 5 full workouts per week, 1 “get outside” workout, and 1 rest day. Plus a “bonus challenge” every week.
💪🏻 For every full workout, you have 20-30min HIIT, a strength drill, a “pose of the day,” and an 8-10min yoga flow to be repeated twice.
💪🏻 The workouts alternate between “legs,” “arms/core,” and “full body.”
💪🏻 Plus, a “nutritional tip” every day of the program!
I started the program in the new year and let me tell ya, my booty and legs have been sore ever since! The workouts are slightly different every day too which is SO important to me; I get bored so easily so I need a super dynamic workout routine!
Today’s pose of the day was Crow Pose. Swipe for today’s flow as well! #yogoskenzpod

yoga has become my go-to stress reliever. it is a practice that takes effort for me - rolling out my mat somedays is the last thing i want to do because i feel crunched for time which, in turn, causes me more stress 🙈 it takes effort for me to slow my breathing and surrender. but it has become vital for me - i need the “brain break” from what i was doing and what i will be doing after. it’s a mid-day restart button for me ⌛️⏳
it has also become “patience training” for me because apparently my dogs are triggered by the mat rolling out and think it’s an invitation to bombard my personal bubble 😂 (swipe left 👈🏽👈🏽)
what are some techniques you use to deal with stress?

Since I started practising yoga I had dream to be able to do handstand press or a deep forward fold. Almost 2 years into my practise I still can’t do either of them, but the changes in my body are big. Guys I can do a puppy press, like what? If you asked me a year ago to show you one, I would have been nah I can never do that! But here I am today, properly doing it! I’m so happy for not giving up 💛
A lot of the time this is what my practice looks like. I feel limitations in my hips and hamstrings so just spending time on my mat trying to open them up and create space. Happy Friday 🖤
Goal this year: do more yoga ✨
Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?
One of my favourite quotes to live by. RIP. ❤️ #maryoliver
I love when my hair is thick with salt and crusty with the sea breeze, at least then I can explain why it’s always so wild. 😜😂 One happy mermaid this day, happy Friday! 💙
Day off and winning at life. Celery Juice first thing this morning. Went out and ran all 5 errands including grocery shopping in the space of 2hrs. Came home and reorganised pantry with new glass jars and labels to motivate me and make my new journey simpler and more appealing to the eye. Completed first official module of my Integrative Nutrition Course. Plus ticked off a bunch of other “to do list” stuff. And it’s only 4pm! 🥳 🎉
May not seem like a big deal to most, but for me, it’s massive, so I’m celebrating. Most days I wake up in agony, so if I have the day off, I just want to watch a movie and not move much at all. Today is no different, but you always have the choice, and today I woke up with a very clear vision of what was important to me. I’ve started writing my ACTION lists the night before, planning what I will do the next day to get one step closer towards my goals, and I definitely wake up more determined and motivated than before I did that.
I’m also starting yoga and Pilates next week, actual classes this time, for real. No doubt it will be painful, especially first thing in the morning, but we all know that there is no gain without pain.
What’s your secret to motivating yourself? Let’s help each other. Comment below 💕

Took a day off today to do some updating - identification card. Been wanting to do it the past 6 months and today was the day. It felt so good. The previous one held felt like I was a hypocrite. I don't look exactly what is in the picture. Today it felt good. A small birthday present for my in the year I turn 31. Leaving home the past 6 months made me realize a lot of things that I couldn't see whilst living under the same roof as my parents. I was never able to grow. Leaving home (yes, that is the exact term, I left home) was the best decision I made for myself. .
2018 was the year I learnt to be independent. Live independently. Learnt how much I appreciated space. I appreciated alone time so much. I also learnt to let go of toxic relationships. Spending time alone had me learning on what I wanted in my life and with whom I wanted to be part of my life. Once upon a time, I told myself, "well I'm stuck with them because they are family". No, I can choose to be apart from them. I chose to not be part of something toxic. As I journaled the past 6 months, I release a lot of pent up emotions and memories as well. They weren't the good ones. So happy I wrote it all. .
2019, I'm ready to travel alone (more). Be more independent. Manifest the things I've always wanted to do or be. Crawl out of my shell even more. Love myself even more. .

• PART ONE : I’ve been really on fire with my mental lately ~ let’s be R E A L. All of my life I feel like I’ve always been an over achieving slacker (or half-asser as my dad would say) .. but recently I’ve made a change, a deep, cellular change. I’ve chose to change my path, my daily life, uproot all of my old beliefs, and just change it all to something fresh & new. I dropped out of college & decided to become a nanny. I knew I wanted to help people heal. But I also knew that I DID NOT want to work in the medical field. Being a CNA & working in many different medical settings ... I had had enough situations as such a highly sensitive empath to know that would never fill my cup ~ only drain it. Being a nanny allowed me to fall deeper into my self - study. Figuring out what I wanted to really do with my healing abilities. Right after I ended my college days ... I was so knotted up & lost. I suffered from generalized anxiety (yup - panic attacks all the time, everyday, all day) and just didn’t feel okay. At all. But these kids man, these kids have taught me so much, and truly helped heal my heart. A huge part of my healing was Y O G A. I practiced HARD that first year, but not in a structured sort of way, just whenever & wherever. More of wanting to look good (which at the time made me feel good) but hey, it sparked something amazing. I continued (and still continue ❤️) to nanny & explore yoga. I began moving closer & closer to meditation. Then started yoga in the parks where I was teaching it?!? (Due to all of the beautiful souls who supported me & reached out to learn). Always doing “yogi” with my little babes at work every day. Yoga truly helped me blossom into the light body that I am. It helped me step into my self. I knew after about 3 years of self practice - this is what I wanted to do?! This is how I would help people heal?! YES FUCK YES. I have never felt more passion or energy flow thru me more than when I say that!!!! That’s how I know .. divine energy guiding my way. I am now currently going through my first 200 HR Yoga teacher training, loving every single second. To be continued ...... •
Love is made up of three unconditional properties in equal measure:
Remove any one of the three and the triangle falls apart.
Pure gold does not rust. Only gold alloys do so. You may have golden dreams. But if you go in the company of toxic people, you become "a gold alloy" and what that means is that you can rust at any time.
In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer ❤️ Stasera power Vinyasa con me @cityzenmilano
Keep your head high, keep your chin up, put your shoulders back, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about 💖
If my strenght intimidates you, I hope you realize that’s a weakness of yours.
Relax after vinyasa class
Only the brave 💖
Meditation is a way for nourishing and blossoming the divine within you 💗
