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.

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.

Every year I write down one overall goal for the year and then I write down 10 steps to achieve that goal. I am reading a really helpful book given to me by a dear friend called Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy – Sarah Ban Breathnach, which I recommend to get some headspace and some me time, let’s face it we all need it.
So this year I want to be happy (ier).
Be grateful. Don’t take anything for granted.
Stop comparing myself to others. Be the best version of ME!
Get rid of the negativity. Find the silver lining.
Surround myself with people who make me feel good and inspire me to be better.
Find new activities that make me smile. Stop engaging in behaviours that don’t.
Continue to be active. Endorphins….(word of the month endorphin – any of a group of hormones secreted within the brain and nervous system and having a number of physiological functions. They are peptides which activate the body's opiate receptors, causing an analgesic effect)
Learn to forgive…myself and others.
Compliment and more importantly accept compliments.
Make a conscious decision to be happy.
Do more Pilates!
