Chilling with @missmollysmusings After a Qi Gong class

Chilling with @missmollysmusings 
After a Qi Gong class.
.
Qi Gong is a centurires-old Chinese mind-body spirit practice that can improve mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement and breathing.
.
I like to vary the types of exercise I do, from the meditative to the body-aligning and strengthening to the aerobic. .

Small steps

Small steps.
.
When life is tough don't give up.
It's easy in January to make all those unrealistic  resolutions and set yourself up to fail.
.
So start your journey with small steps.
A step by step change of thinking.
.
It could be that you want to:
Change your life.
Become fitter, healthier.
It could be anything........
.
Start each day when you wake up to be grateful for 3 things in your life. That way the day will begin  on a positive note.
.
Remove any negativity and replace with positivity and the possibilities of what you can achieve with each of those small steps.
.
Be the master of your own destiny.

My old body feels and moves so much better when I do a minimum of 1 Pilates class a week

My old body feels and moves so much better when I do a minimum of 1 Pilates class a week. .
3 classes would be optimum but when both work and social life is busy, it's difficult to fit everything in and motivation to get up at 6am for a 7am class is less strong after a few consecutive nights out and just a glass or two of rose. ......
.
Reformer Pilates Scissors exercise using only one strap at a time for core stability, abs and hip flexors.
.
Making sure that the hips stay still, back stays in neutral and lower abs and glutes remain switched on. .
