We get so many people asking how they can stay on track over the festive season. It's impossible to be perfect, however, there is a fine line between enjoying yourself and going totally overboard. Here are some of our tips to enjoy yourself without undoing all your hard work. 🎅 Remember your goals. If you think about your goals and how much you want to achieve them you'll be less likely to go crazy and over indulge 🎅 Make the best choices possible when it comes to food. You know what is good and what isn't. A treat here and there won't undo all your hard work, but also don't totally overdo it 🎅 Stick to your routine as much as possible. If you get up and go to the gym every morning then continue this over the festive period 🎅 Eat before social events. If you eat before you go to social events you won't be hungry and less likely to snack or binge on items that you wouldn't usually eat 🎅 Avoid or limit alcohol. This one is a no brainer. Not only is alcohol empty calories but it also reduces your inhibitions and can lead you to make poor food choices 🎅 Don't beat yourself up. If you do overindulge draw a line under it and move on. Get straight back on track. Don't wait until the next day/ Monday/ New Year

Because OKAY is comfortable, it pay the bill and you sleep well at night. Some people are find with it but guess what?
Okay isn’t thrilling, it isn’t passionate and it doesn’t transform you nor give you unforgettable memories ❤️ 🥰❤️

Do something crazy ✅
Take a risk 🔥
Make you OWN ❤️ beat fast 💨
You don’t always need equipment to build strength or to work up a sweat! Bodyweight exercises get results. Generally speaking, bodyweight exercises are compound movements, meaning numerous joints and muscles are engaged in each move.
Exercises such as push ups, lunges, chin-ups ect have been shown to be very effective for gaining strength and for improved performance.
You can utilise a free space anywhere you like whether it’s in a park (maybe keep it inside today with Melbourne’s chilly weather) or at home and still get an awesome workout in!
I had the pleasure of assisting @sarahmarielowe ‘s class today & one of my favorite parts was her cueing to get into #dancerpose (aka #nataranjasana). . . .
Start in #tadasana with a straight spine & then take your foot in right your hand. Breathe. Then
kick your foot into your hand. Your right leg will move back slightly not that much. Repeat the process 3-5 times & eventually you’ll be in your full expression of the pose. . . .
The timing and breathing can make all the difference. They give your body to opportunity to adjust, to find balance, to let your muscles stretch & engage in new ways. . . .
Give it a try! Maybe your knees stay touching. Maybe your foot ends up above your head. Maybe you’re in between. IT’S ALL GOOD. Tag it with #gooddancerpose so we can see 👀
How often do you stretch?
stretching is so vital that it should be incorporated as a way of life, every day, whether you are set to exercise or not. Stretching helps keep our muscles healthy, strong and flexible. Stretching further helps maintain flexibility and range of motion within our joints. Without stretching, our muscles can become weak, and the range of motion within our joints can decrease, leaving us not only feeling stiff and unable to extend all of the way but also susceptible to injuries like muscle tears, strains, and weakened muscles. These can further lead to joint injuries from the inability to support the joints. Stretching daily can also improve circulation within the body and help relieve stress. .
