Meditation and Me

Meditation and Me

June 11th, 2016BlogNo Comments »

I was never one for meditation. Being in the corporate world I think my attitude was that I didn't have time to be ‘still’. On the rare occasion I went to a yoga class, I was the person at the back lying down in savasana scratching my nose every 5 seconds, opening my eyes, and twitching uncomfortably. In my head I was making lists and t...

A ‘Berry’ Great Event

April 19th, 2016BlogNo Comments »

Well I don’t know about you but I had an amazing weekend! The cherry on the cake (the gluten and sugar free cake of course) was the Kiss The Berry Wellness Detox Workshop I attended on Sunday afternoon. Held at the trendy Autumn and Co. in Southbank, myself and some gorgeous, likeminded girls got together to learn some fascinating things about he...

Everyone has a story

I’ve had a few requests for my ‘pilates story’ recently - so here it is! I was in the Marketing and Advertising industry for around 10 years before last year (2015), a friend asked me to do a 30 day challenge with her at Studio Pilates. I agreed as I had always been into health and fitness and wanted to support her getting into s...

Get stretchy!

March 6th, 2016BlogNo Comments »

Ahh stretching. It’s usually the first part of an exercise session to be skipped if you’re running low on time, or ignored because ‘it’s not really necessary’. I was one of those people who used to creep out of pump class during the stretches so I could race home and enjoy an extra 5mins in the shower. Not anymore! I ...

Ahhh Valentine's Day. It’s a different kind of day when you’re single. This year is the first in a LONG time I haven’t had a Valentine and it’s forced me to look at the day very differently. To be honest I was dreading today. I thought I would wake up feeling sad and alone, but It’s actually been quite the opposite. ...

Meal prepping is really important and can help you to make healthy food choices, but you don’t have to meal prep EVERYTHING. There are heaps of options out there for simple, quick and healthy meals and this salmon and greens is one of my all time favourites! Get the salmon going first. Once it’s prepped and in the oven it's the perfect ti...

Makeup for exercise

Makeup for exercise

January 31st, 2016BlogNo Comments »

I’m not really a makeup person - ask any of my friends and they will tell you I’m useless! Contouring – ain’t nobody got time for that! Winged eyeliner – impossible. Lip liner – does a chapstick count?, but I do like to put on a little something even when I’m exercising. My skin is pretty good – I have a few sc...

Experts suggest that weight loss is generally attributed to 75% diet and just 25% exercise! This goes to show that diet is SUCH an important part of a healthy lifestyle.* As most of us have experienced however, it’s all well and good to set a healthy meal plan but it’s something else entirely to stick to it. Combine temptation with lif...

My favourite vegetable curry

January 17th, 2016BlogNo Comments »

I posted a photo of a vegetable curry on my instagram page (@thatpilatespassion) the other week and had heaps of requests for the recipe - so here it is! This curry is so delicious and so so easy! It’s great for your weekly meal prep as you literally cut a bunch of things up, chuck them in a slow cooker, and forget about them! The recipe is fro...

Should I Use Pilates Accessories?

Should I Use Pilates Accessories?

January 10th, 2016BlogNo Comments »

Pilates is amazing because you can literally do it anywhere and with absolutely nothing but yourself! You don’t even need a mat if desperate times call for desperate measures and you are stuck without one. In saying that, there are some accessories that can enhance your workout so I thought I would run though a few of my favourites. Pilates Mat ...

I just got back from an amazing five days is Melbourne. I visited the Melbourne Zoo, celebrated New Years at Harbourside Docklands, shopped the Victoria Markets and saw The Illusionists at The Arts Centre. I love exploring new places (I haven’t been to Melbourne since I was a kid!) and trying new things, but I also like to keep relatively o...
