Calming Mind, Body and Spirit

hot-stone-stackThe energy of Reiki healing helps to expand  the physical tension and calms the mind. As this occurs, our bodies can reset into a more centred state. The more this state is supported, the more it begins to enlighten us. An energy healing session with Belinda  clears the body’s natural energy pathways, ultimately lifting its vibratory state into a place of balance and wellbeing.

Most people experience an increased sense of well-being, manifesting in many ways, such as an overall sense of peace and relaxation, expansion of consciousness, shifting self-defeating patterns, and opening to a fresh perspective on one’s life.

Belinda will empower you to self-heal by showing you how to identify your core triggers and patterns which are keeping you from getting un-stuck.   Help you to discover and clear energetic imbalances in your own body and provide strategies to improve your wellbeing.

Belinda’s healing sessions include energy analysis, the clearing of imbalances, spiritual coaching, and Reiki healing and supportive lifestyle strategies. This powerful combination helps you overcome your obstacles more effectively and often restores you to a more balanced life within 6 weeks*.

Reiki Healing

reiki

 

Reiki Healing is a form of energy sessions of Japanese origin that is effective on physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual levels.  Stress, physical and emotional trauma and illness curb the natural flow of “Ki” – life force energy through the body.  By restoring the flow of “Ki” in the body, Reiki revives the body’s ability to relax and de-stress, and wholly supports its ability to heal itself.

Reiki (ray-ki) is an ancient energy healing modality using the universal life force to effectively balance and heal the mind, body and spirit. This powerful form of alternative medicine enhances the body’s ability to relax and heal itself after becoming stressed, encountering trauma and creating a state of dis-ease while restoring Ki (life force energy) into your body, balancing the chakras and removing energy blocks.

It addresses certain aspects of the mind, body and spirit in different ways and amplifies healing possibilities massively. It’s especially helpful with expediting results and removing energy blocks.

Get ready for summer with one-on-one Pilates coaching

  • pilates-sunset-tricheco-825x340
Many people lead sedentary lives during the cold winter months, but when summer arrives there is less excuse to not stay fit. One-on-one Pilates coaching provides a fitness plan that is tailored to your immediate body and fitness goals. The flexible, adaptable system offer multiple benefits, from promoting the development of long and lean muscle to easing back pain and improving posture.

 

Why one-on-one Pilates?
Pilates group classes are popular, but in a group setting you do not get the extended individual attention that will help you master Pilates exercises and good form quickly. In a private class, you can work at your ideal pace and your instructor will be able to correct any negative physical habits even quicker. If you are serious about getting in shape for summer, a private class can be your personal boot camp.

 

Why is Pilates the ideal fitness solution for summer?
Summer usually means a time of increased outdoor activity. Besides helping you look your best in more revealing clothing, Pilates helps you develop your core. This internal muscle system is responsible for absorbing shocks and transferring force, and a stronger core can help to reduce risk of injury when you are more active and spend more time outdoors.

Other preparatory measures for summer
Besides a physical fitness routine, it is worth investing in other aspects of health and beauty so that you can start your summer off feeling fantastic. Plant-powered skincare and cosmetics are kind to skin that has been subjected to the harsh winter weather. Supplementing your diet with plant-based supplements that are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants will also help to ward off the passing illnesses that often arrive with a change in seasons.

 

Combine good nutrition, a holistic Pilates fitness plan and a summer-ready beauty regimen and you will enter the warmer months feeling reinvigorated and prepared. 


Contact Belinda here to find out more about private Pilates classes and Arbonne skincare, supplements and cosmetics that are packed with the nutritious power of plants. 

 

Why you need Lifestyle Changes

  • Lifestyle Changes

Pilates is often championed by itself, but the truth is that a Pilates program is most effective when adopted as part of wider lifestyle transformation. Many of us have existing health concerns but have you ever considered that your symptoms could be trying to tell you that you need to rebalance say your diet for more efficient energy release?

So What are ‘Lifestyle Changes’?pilates-NORM-920x690

The term is thrown around a lot, but a lifestyle change is anything that re-evaluates and improves an aspect of one’s well-being (such as your diet or the amount that you exercise).

How do I Implement Lifestyle Changes?

Whether you’ve been meaning to start exercising more or eating healthily, implementing lifestyle changes is a commitment. Exercise, learning new relaxation techniques or just changing the kind of foods you eat can feel like a huge effort of energy, but having someone to guide you along the road to wellbeing makes it easier. An experienced professional is able to motivate you to achieve your goals.

Pilates and Lifestyle Changes

Pilates has helped countless people regain a sense of empowerment, by easing the symptoms of menopause and other imbalances. Those whose therapies work best are those who adopt related lifestyle changes that work towards the same symptom-eliminating goal as the therapy. If you incorporate changes for wellbeing into your own process, you are sure to see results.

Being Mindful: Pilates and Mindfulness

  • The-Potential-of-Mindfulness

“The Pilates Method of Body Conditioning is complete co-ordination of body, mind and spirit” – Joseph Pilates

Pilates is a series of slow, defined exercises carried out on both the mat and resistance equipment.  The exercises should be performed correctly, taking the time to establish the technique rather than rushing through them.

Everyone who participates in a Pilates class knows just how much there is to think about; breathing, using the right muscles and relaxing the others, listening to the instructor and so on.  This can feel a little overwhelming at first but it is normal and will get easier as the body learns the new ways of doing things.  When you are thinking of all those things, you are in the moment, living it and doing it – there is no time to think of anything else…  However, by the end of your class, you will feel energised and calm.monica-mccarthy-2

The breathing method used in a Pilates exercise encourages relaxation and has been shown to improve moods and reduce anxiety.  Using the breath will activate and energise the muscles and as you bring your attention to your body, you will be able to execute the movements precisely, with control and mindfulness.

Mindfulness is an important state of being to strive for at all times. Mindfulness means being fully present in the moment, not projecting yourself into anticipated future fears or dwelling too much on any past disappointments.

Better eating for Healthier Living – Get your ‘5 a day’

  • landscape-1445903708-g-5-a-day-95740903

Healthy eating is about learning to trust your body and finding that subtle balance between what the media says and how your body actually feels. What better way to get healthy than incorporating healthy eating alongside the never ending benefits of Pilates? I want to inspire you to be the happiest healthiest versions of yourself (and you can’t maintain the body you want eating food you shouldn’t be).

A busy schedule and multiple commitments make it easy to skip meals or opt for take-away, cakes and other tempting meals. A balanced diet, however, consists of slow-releasing energy ensuring better health and longevity. If you want to get into the habit of better eating, find a way to make sure you get your ‘5 a day’.

When life gets hectic, your diet is usually the first thing to go. The truth is junk food is more accessible than healthy options. So you have to stay prepared.

The World Health Organisation advises that people should eat a minimum of 400 grams of fruit and vegetables daily to maintain optimal health and reduce risk of serious conditions such as heart disease. This amounts to roughly 5 portions of fruit and vegetables daily. This might sound like a lot, but a small container of fruit salad or a helping of lightly steamed spinach or broccoli is enough for a single portion.vegetarian_diet1

Where will I find the time to prepare all this food?

Although having 5 portions of healthy food mapped out for your day may sound like a lot, many fruits and vegetables require hardly any preparation at all. Bananas are high in potassium, while oranges are high in vitamin C. These easy-to-eat fruits you can alternate with vegetables such as carrots, sweet tomatoes and leafy salad greens that require almost no preparation whatsoever.

Shortcuts for getting your ‘5 a day’

Nutritional balance has many advantages – besides warding off serious medical conditions, it also provides greater energy to sustain you throughout the day. To minimise the work involved in ensuring you get your 5 portions, consider:

· Dried fruit: dates are particular nutritious, and many berries such as cranberries are superfoods that provide great antioxidants

· Health juices: Supermarkets and delis sell convenient ready-to-drink fruit and veggie juices that are packed with nutrients and avoid the excessive sugar and salt that you will find in the average fast food meal.

We believe that you can live that healthy life you’ve always wanted. It’s important to us that you have a place to come to as you achieve your goals. We’d love to offer you an opportunity to join our Envigour family. Book your first Pilates class at Envigour Pilates for only £xxxx, and start your journey to a better you.

Pilates for lower back pain (LBP)

  • aid249085-v4-700px-Strengthen-Your-Back-with-Pilates-Step-10

Back pain is a very common cause of disability and absence from work. Exercise is often recommended as a way of managing chronic LBP especially Pilates which is increasingly used by people with LBP.

So what is the effect of Pilates on LBP in terms of muscle endurance or range of motion? Pilates quite simply improves muscle strength, joint movement and balance. Strength, mobility and balance are needed when doing sport and leisure activities, as well as everyday living such at washing, dressing, shopping, working and being able to sit/stand with ideal posture.

supine-spinal-twist-pilates

People with back pain sometimes avoid moving and doing exercise due to the fear of making things worse, which can quickly result in the loss of muscle strength and joint movement. This in turn will have a negative impact on their overall health and wellbeing.

Pilates exercises can start at a very low level and progress to a much higher level of exercise and the role of your teacher is to educate and alleviate why you may have ongoing pain. Attending a class can help lessen any fear associated with movement, correct any poor movement habits and postures, and teach ways to improve how the body performs at home, work and in sport.

Being able to move more easily will help people to do activities to maintain and improve overall health and wellbeing.

Pilates is more effective than most other forms of exercise for those with low back pain that do pilates on a regular basis ; whether the exercise is delivered as a class or 1:1, any exercise to be beneficial needs to be started at the right level for the individual, and be repeated on a regular basis.

Remember, Pilates is one of the few exercise types that you can perform every day without the worries of over-stressing the joints, skeletal structure, or soft tissue.
