EXPRESS YOUR TRUTH

Written by , Posted in Attractive Energy, Inner Purity, Inspiration, Self-Care, Sexy Tone

Everyday express yourself, speak your truth. The more you speak & express your truth the further you are from a false self-image and the inability to accomplish the very things that make you happy!

That is why everyday, focus on what feels good to you! Never mind what anybody else says.

Here are a few affirmations to keep you on the path of your truth, to stay motivated, healthy, and happy!

1. My body is made to be strong, healthy, and happy!
2. I am naturally motivated.
3. I express myself freely, from the heart.
4. I am energetic!
5. My energy is magnetic.
6. Movement inspires good energy for me, and those around me.
7. My thoughts are filled with love & light.

Happy Monday! Stay motivated dolls! Xx

VIDEO: SUMMER ABS + ANTI-AGING YOGA

Written by , Posted in Beauty, Body, Mind, Sexy Tone, Skin Glow, Yoga, You

A summer ab workout + yoga for anti-aging benefits!

[ABS] Flutter Kicks, Cherry Pickers
[ANTI-AGING] Plow, Shoulder Stand, Plow, Fish Pose.

Inversions pull everything down. Through the flow process, blood travels and circulates towards our organs, brain, head, and face. Shoulder stand is an amazing pose for preventing and reducing wrinkles increasing overall circulation of the blood to the face, and therefore improving the complexion for glowing skin.

xx love & light! <3

sunina anniversary1 Happy 1 Year of MIND BODY BEAUTY Blogging Consistency! YAY!

It’s been a fun year that has flown by. This is a big deal to me because I have gone through so many changes, evolved tremendously, and have FIT more comfortably in my own skin this past year and luckily I was able to write about it along the way right here on this blog. I hope through all of my messages you can feel my energy and intentions to truly cleanse and purify – through words, yoga poses, photos & videos <3

The mind sets the tone for the body to move a certain way. My intention is for you to cleanse the mind, purify the body, so you can see beauty in all beings, and things. Heaven on earth is as real as you believe it to be. That is the youth code.. xx

To another beautiful year with many blessings, thank you to all the beauties who click away on this blog. You are a blessing and a natural beauty.

love & light.

YOU ARE BEAUTIFIT

Written by , Posted in Attractive Energy, Beauty, Body, Confidence, Inspiration, Self-Care, Sexy Tone, Skin Glow, Sunina, Yoga, You

You are beautifit! My dear friend Melissa and I got together for a workout and beauty session.. She is an esthetician with a passion for beautiful brows and DETOX wraps! Right here right now, officially saying it’s okay to wear makeup when you work out!! Go for the brows, cheek glow, lip gloss, and mascara to maintain a cute glow while you work out. Skip concealer, foundations, powders.. those clog your pores and are not so cute mixed in with sweat. Here are a few items we played with:

YES, it’s okay to wear makeup to the gym. I never leave home without it. xx

Okay, let’s get motivated!!! It’s the final movement for this weeks inspiration, Pilates!

I learn so much just by posting and writing here everyday. I always want to ensure that the movements I post are of correct form and helpful! You can do any of the exercises I post anywhere because they are equipment free. All you need is a little motivation.

So, today’s workout is the Teaser II. There is one position for it with a slight movement:

Get into position- balance with your legs and hands extended up, see above. Then lower and raise your legs for 3 to 5 reps. Do 3 sets!!

Great for your abs.

PLANK CROSS

Written by , Posted in Yoga

Plank Cross

The Plank Cross works your abs, obliques, shoulders, and butt.

Here’s how to do the Plank Cross:

Position A: start in plank position with wrists directly beneath shoulders.

Position B: engage abs as you bring your right knee to the left. Return to plank and repeat on opposite side.

Do 30!

Beauty P.S. I am working up the will to cut my hair. Why is hair so emotionally connected to us?? Does it signify that we are yearning for a dramatic change, not only in appearance but in situational circumstances, relationships, or career? Thoughts anyone? Read this good article about the psychology of hair from YouBeauty.

Edit, 1 hour later: and here’s why I’ve already decided against chopping off my hair.. ”I’m thrilled with how my hair looks right now, which, as you all know, is the perfect time to fuck with it and make myself miserable. ” –Babe Walker.

LEG CLIMB

Written by , Posted in Yoga

legclimb

Here’s to a Pilates inspired week! Happy Monday.

The leg climb has been challenging to me because of the flexibility factor. How high can you climb up your leg without compensating good form?

How to do the Leg Climb:

Position A: sit with both feet stretched out in front of you, kick your right leg straight up! Hold your calves from a comfortable distance.

Position B: straight back- pulse your legs into your chest as you climb up as much as you can. Switch legs.

Try this on a daily basis to progressively increase your flexibility.

Do 20 reps!
