BODY BY SUNINA ♡

Written by , Posted in Sexy Tone, Strength, Weight Loss

IMG_8647.JPG

Linette manages the marketing and social media at L’Oreal. She’s also a co-creater at EM cosmetics. This busy beauty girl and I started working out together on May 1st 2015! She’s a beautiful girl with a healthy body awareness and confidence. She just wanted to tighten up, stretch, and feel healthy.
Linette’s body goals were to tone up, and to slim down her waistline.

Here’s what we did:
A workout based vinyasa yoga with toning, cardio, glutes, obliques focus. Ends with a cool-down stretch with aromatherapy Savasana of course! Linette’s favorite part lol
2x a week.

SLT – megaformer Pilates
In my classes I focus a lot of my attention on butt and waist for my clients. I love to enhance and shape the natural figure of a woman!
1x a week (sometimes 2x a week).

Nutrition:
Clean eating and a variety of juices. She had doughnuts once, and indulged in Korean food while away to see her parents lol. But for the most part she was super on point with her nutrition. It is not so sane to be so strict. It is okay to eat! It is about awareness.

Linette’s dedication, perseverance, positive attitude has inspired me the past 12 weeks. Open to change, ready to work, put in 100%, and most importantly had FUN with it. We had specific body goals to work towards. We weren’t stressing, we just wanted to feel good. The results were exactly what she was looking for, for her trip to Greece! And now it’s time for a bikini in the Mediterranean!

Xx
Love and light.

WHY DO YOU DO WHAT YOU DO

Written by , Posted in Clarity

IMG_7220.JPG

I teach to purify and uplift. Why do you do what you do? Sometimes your passion burns out and you have to re-inspire yourself and ask why you do what you do to get you back to the root of the reason. Remember why you started. When the passion burns out ask yourself why. It’s taking a step back and being mindful. Set the ego aside, and get depth in your reasoning.

Here are a few statements to get you thinking:

I am a _________.
Examples: Healer, lover, warrior, inspiration, supporter, game changer.

I do what I do to __________.
Examples: Heal, love, be strong, inspire, support, make change, help and restore.

I _________ to ___________ .
Examples: I blog to inspire change. I cook to create a healthy lifestyle for my family. I create videos to express my passion for yoga.

Xx love and light.

FORGET ME NOT ♡

Written by , Posted in Happiness, Self-Care

IMG_7112.JPG
A look into what I consider my bible: ACIM, a block of text from my lesson this morning:

Let me not forget my function. I would not forget my function, because I would remember my Self. I cannot fulfill my function if I forget it. And unless I fulfilled my function, I will not experience the joy that God intends for me. Suitable specific forms of this idea include:
• Let me not use this to hide my function from me.
• this may threaten my ego, but cannot change my function in any way.

My interpretation from my ACIM reading: You tune back to yourself by staying in touch with your inner world. Remember when you do not feel happy it is a hint that something is off path and you need to reconnect, redirect. Start each day with a grateful heart. Then realize your function, your purpose. Let go of the ego/fear based thoughts and actions. Do what excites you, scares you. That what your next task to do is. We all have a function and a job to fulfill. It is when we feel fulfilled is when we are doing our job. When we feel anxious, lost, tired, fatigued, is when we have not checked in. Our work should make us feel energized, happy, and fulfilled.

Let me not forget my function. ♡

Xx love and light.

SCHEDULE TIME FOR INNER WORK

Written by , Posted in Clarity, Inner Purity

IMG_6745.JPG

Monday mornings are for planning out and scheduling the week, right?? Looking at priorities, things to do (and at times tackle)..

It’s been a few weeks, and it is when I am without, that I realize how important scheduling inner work is. Mindful movement is the most fulfilling type of movement. When I do the inner work, I am more compassionate, more unattached to results, and more aware.

It’s is one of the best suggestions I’ve gotten for self-care which has stuck with me since its been shared with me. And I want to share it with you here on the blog.

If you use your apple calendar, iPhone calendar, or even your pen/pencil planner: schedule in a time once a week or twice a week for your inner work. Inner work can include reading, meditating, relaxing with affirmations, journaling, just any type of quiet time with yourself. One hour is amazing.

My mentor once re-quoted: “You should sit in meditation twenty minutes everyday – unless you’re too busy. Then you should sit for an hour.”

Self-care at its best:) mind your heart and soul, as that is where true beauty is rooted from.

Xx love and light.

GREATEST TEACHERS: DIFFICULT PEOPLE

Written by , Posted in Yoga

IMG_6486.JPG

The most difficult people you cross paths with are the greatest teachers for your personal growth. Know when to stay in the situation and know when you are ready to graduate from it.

The angriest and the most resistant to love are the ones that need it the most.

Are you patient enough to see beyond the difficult situations and people? How do you look above your own cloudiness so you don’t get intertwined with the turmoil? Because above that thick cloud is peace. If you can see above and beyond you don’t have to be involved with the chaos that comes with the difficult people / situations.

Stretch, breath, let go and let God ♡

FLATTERY = CRITICISM

Written by , Posted in Clarity, Self-Care, Strength

IMG_5587.JPG

Experiencing true self-love means both the flattery and criticism you are sometimes faced with have zero power to shift your self-perception.

You don’t get big in the head over flattery, you don’t get hurt by criticism. You honor yourself and only allow that kind of power be exclusive you.

Here are some tips to find this type of clarity separated into mind, body, beauty sections:

Mind
-Meditate
-Read your favorite books
-Release both good/bad judgement as they come to you.
-Greet the morning by counting blessings

Body
-Do Yoga.
-Eat Clean.
-Eat the gluteus things you love in moderation.
-Have healthy body goals set for yourself.
-Embrace body challenging workouts.

Beauty
-Take care of your skin morning / night.
-Learn and do your own at-home facials.
-Accept your ‘flaws’.
-Highlight your best features with makeup:)
-Enjoy being makeup-less when you want/can.

Xx love & light.
