Today Insta announced that the amount of ‘likes’ on photos will now be hidden in Aus!! 👏🏻. Here’s to posting without seeking validation, here’s to realer and more authentic posts, here’s to lovin’ our bods and each other, and most of all - here’s to livin’ our best lives for the sake of livin’ and not because we are doin’ it for the gram 🙏🏻
I get asked all the time for advice on finding your ‘passion’ which I think directly correlates with your ‘purpose’. It can be really overwhelming and can create so much pressure and panic to figure out what you like and what you want to do with your life. Firstly - it can take time. If you haven’t found your thing yet, don’t panic. Try and do and see as much as possible and when you find something that makes your heart sing, bring it into your life as much as possible.

Hey guys. I thought I’d show you the ‘pretzel’ today. A super challenging side butt exercise. You can see mine working pretty hard 😂. 3 levels 1. Forearm down 2. Fingers in front 3. No hands! There’s some fun little push back pulses at the end too 🔥. Start in a mermaid position and make sure your back knee starts in line with your hip or slightly behind. What level can you go up to 🤷♀️👌🏻.
Happy Saturday! Trying out my @bubblefitco resistance band for some standing booty work. These bands are great - super firm so they don’t slide or roll around. The resistance is TOUGH so make sure you concentrate on keeping your knees tracking over your toes. You have to constantly press out or your knees will roll in. Try this workout. 20 x squats 20 x squat pulses 20 x squat pulses and butterflies (pushing knees out over little toe) 10 x crab walks (stay low on way up then add pulse on way back) 20 x step out squats How many times can you repeat 😅🔥
Want to workout, meal prep, be social, chase my dreams, make the moola, write back to everyone and smash my to-do list... but also want to eat a burger and nap all day 😂🤦♀️. Winter tan @tanlounge_official
Reposting this corrections video cause Insta deleted 🤷♀️ ♦️ Lunges: Front knee and ankle aligned - you should always be able to see the top of your toe so try to avoid the knee coming too far forward. ♦️ Lunge toe taps: Keep all of the weight on your front leg and be light with your back toe - try not to tap the weight back with you. ♦️Crab walks: Sit low into a deep squat with your knees and toes aligned. Think about rolling weight onto the outer edges of the feet so the knees don’t roll in (I think about ripping the floor apart) and only step back to hip distance so the feet don’t come too close together. ♦️Bicycles: (I had to think about how to make my body do these wrong 😂) Slow and controlled. Make sure the leg you are extending lengthens all of the way out and you are rotating rib to opposite hip.
Focus on what matters and simply let go of what doesn’t 🙌🏻 📸 @francescaowen_

Inviting love and light into my world. Thanks to @lululemonausnz and @sukhino_ for a beautiful yoga and meditation class this week ❤️. Meditation is something I’ve dabbled with in the past but to be honest I’ve never been consistent with. Every time I make a conscious effort to include some form of meditation in my day (even practicing mindfulness) I’m reminded of the countless benefits. A few of my faves are - reducing stress, enchanting self awareness and improving sleep 🙏🏻 #lululemonbne
It’s such an incredible gift that we are able to learn and grow every single day! 💫 With that in mind I invite you to do something a little extra today. Maybe you could practice gratitude, wake up earlier, be mindful, smile more, book that class you’ve been wanting to try, or listen to that podcast. However small, today is a day full of possibilities. 🙌🏻
You know what I love about pilates? You can do lots of stuff lying down 😂. Here’s a little postural/glute flow I am loving 😍. Top tip: when you’re lying on your tummy press your pubic bone down and lift your tummy away from the floor (kind of like you’re humping the floor 🙊) - tight abs and glutes will protect your lower back 👌🏻
