Autumn Renew Pilates Routine

I love Autumn but I think it’s a time we can sometimes feel a bit of of wack with no clear focus and direction. Summer and September seemed to have whizzed by and we are now heading towards Christmas and the new year but not quite at the exciting countdown part yet. There’s still so much of this year to go yet where we can stay motivated and productive, It’s not too late to set goals, take care of yourself and feel incredible for these last few months of the year. I’ve taken on some fitness health challenges of my own but Pilates is my bread and butter and my go to way of moving when I’m feeling a little out of balance. So take 10, refocus and join me in this Autumn Renew Pilates Routine…

Your Feel Good Pilates Workout

Feel Good Pilates

Whenever I’m feeling a little bit down or low in energy, I know one of the best things to do is to move my body and mix several adaptogen blends in my smoothy to help get my energy up. It doesn’t have to be a full on work out but just some spinal mobility, something to feel my core and some natural flowing movement. This always makes me feel so much better so I thought I’d create a little 10 minute feel good Pilates workout that you can do to boost your energy and mood.

Did know it’s organic September and for me it’s also a very busy September so it seemed there was no better time to try out a Riverford Organic Recipe Box. Now as much as I love creating new recipes and spending time experimenting in the kitchen, sometimes it’s just hassle free and easy to follow a recipe and to be given the exact ingredients I need for that recipe is just another weight off my busy shoulders. Thank you Riverford Recipe Box…
