Can you learn to ask better questions?

This topic just keeps on reoccurring so I needed to share it with you all!

 

About a year ago, the amazing John Hardy bought my attention to the fact that in the fitness industry we ask some really unhelpful questions…So as a trainer I needed to learn to ask better questions.

 

As a child we always asked questions, which seemed to annoy a lot of adults or result in the answer, “I don’t know” As we age, we can get into a habit of not questioning or not wanting to be rude… But questions are awesome when you ask better ones!

 

Every single day of our lives our mind is going through an internal dialogue, we have around 65,000 thoughts a day, 80% negative and 90 % the same as the day before! Can you remember any of yours?

 

We can be guilty of wasting time asking negative questions like, “Why can’t I lose weight?” “Why do I eat so much?”, “Why can’t I stop eating chocolate”

 

We are bombarded with images and marketing telling us that we need their products to be better. Why don’t I look like them, why don’t I have that car? Why is my hair not shiny like hers? You get the picture.

 

Comparison is the thief of happiness. And what I really want for you is simple, to be happier and healthier!

 

Once the question is out there we naturally find answers in our own minds. We ask questions and answer them all day long. Most of our answers are backing up the question, making it seem true!

 

“I can’t lose weight because I’m lazy, I have no will power, I’m big boned”… or “They wont pick me for the job because I’m not good enough, there will be someone better than me, I never get what I want”

 

So what I want to inspire you to do… What I beg you to do, What I wish and hope you will do is join me on the quest of asking better questions with me! Like anything it’s simply a new muscle that needs building up and making stronger. I found it really hard to being with, but with practice you will soon see an incredible difference!

 

So here are some questions for you to try…

 

Why am I good enough?

 

Why am I going to get inshape?

 

Why do I deserve health?

 

Why do all of my friends value me so much?

 

Why is my life incredible?

 

How can I look after myself better?

 

How can I make a few easy steps to reaching my goal?

 

What do I really want?

 

Once you are on a roll there will be no stopping you!

 

Then start questioning others too! In a kind, compassionate way of course!

 

We would love to hear from you so please let us know Why you freaking rock!!!

 

Love Aimie xxx

 

A little taster of Move and Nourish…

Hey Gorgeous People!

I just wanted to give you a quick sneak peak of what our amazing new site, www.moveandnourish.com has on offer to guide you to eat better, feel better, think better and move better… Today we have one of my favourites, my lovely functional yoga movement session perfect or everyone! The site is jam packed full of other lovely videos to get you feeling amazing!I hope you enjoy and please go and take a look around!

I hope you are all enjoying the first day of lent? Lent is usually about giving up something, a feeling of deprivation, a feeling like you are missing out, but I’d like to encourage you to add something in for the next 40 days that will make you feel amazing!

I’m adding in 1 hour a day (that’s only 4% of the day) of me time, that’s to either exercise, meditate, have a long hot bath or curl up with a good book or a mixture. I’ve been really busy lately with awesome, fun projects, which can sometimes stop us looking after ourselves, so let’s look at how to do more good for our minds and bodies!

In my classes this morning we were all discussing this and Anita is going to give herself the gift of a proper lunch break every single day, for the next 40 days! Jane and Anne are simply going to add in 6 repetitions of a Pilates exercise, a ‘roll-down’ where you simply become aware of the gentle opening of the back of the spine as you roll down, then re-build the vertebra back up. Simple!

What will you gift your beautiful self with this lent?

Loads of Love,

 

Aimie

New Timetable and a Little Gift x

Hello Gorgeous People!

I hope you are all enjoying the time building up towards Christmas! I certainly am! I feel so lucky that we have had a lovely mild few weeks to enjoy the warm breeze! I’ve been studying more ancient forms of yoga this month and am really enjoying learning more and playing with totally new movements that feel wonderful!

So my christmas present to you all is to get you to think of 3 things you are grateful for, but not just anythings… a specific 3 things that will make you feel like the luckiest person alive when you do it regularly. I do this after every meditation practice and I love it, so I hope you enjoy!

1. Think of 1 person who makes your life more fun/enjoyable/happier, who makes you feel loved or special and think about why you like/love them so much. (you could even text them afterwards to tell them?)

2. Remember something you’ve done in your life that you are proud of yourself for and really dwell on how incredible you are capable of being!

3. In your mind experience or try to remember one thing in nature that you love, for example, the crunch of leaves beneath your feet in autumn or the sun on your skin. My favourite is a warm breeze through my hair on a summers night.

That’s it! Why not give it a go?

Oh yes, and here is my new timetable ready for you all to get into the self care spirit before the new year!

Have a wonderful day lovely ones!

Love Aimie xx

Relaxation Weekend 26th & 27th September 2015

Chakra and yoga day worcester

 

Hello Lovely People!!!

I hope you are having a truly wonderful week and enjoying the lovely weather!

I am delighted to tell you that we have another relaxation weekend planned for this September, we have two days planned which are both fantastic and quite different…

You may want to come along to just one day, or have a mini break with a whole weekend…

Day 1 - Healing Chakras – A Practical Introduction

Chakras are often described as energy vortices, or wheels of rotating energy at differing levels of frequency. Each chakra influences different aspects of human emotion and behaviour and their efficiency in part determines our level of spirituality.
The state of our chakras greatly influences our well-being. When they are unblocked and allow energy to flow freely at the correct rate, we enjoy optimum physical, emotional, mental and/or spiritual health. We feel great! However, when blocked or unbalanced the free flow of energy is hampered leading to ‘dis-ease’ in these four areas of our lives. We certainly do not feel great!!

So we need to know both how to spot the symptoms of blockages or imbalances as well as know what we need to do to help ourselves and others.

The Day

This day will start by looking at what chakras are, how they relate to the production of hormones and how the system of energy flow in the body works. We will then examine each of the major chakras in turn. For each we will consider their role in the body, the qualities associated with each and what to look out for when considering their health. What to do to help heal or cleanse each chakra so that it vibrates at the correct level to improve the energy flow will be also be given. From past experience, there will be much discussion and interaction during the day as a great deal of laughter and enjoyment!

In addition, a delicious and fantastically healthy two-course lunch will be provided along with a green smoothie on arrival and refreshments will be available throughout the day. All the food and drink will be freshly prepared, will be alkaline, vegetarian & vegan friendly and will be suitable for those who have coeliac disease, suffer from psoriasis and IBS as well as being lactose and sugar-free!!

 

meditation Day Worcester

 

 

Do you ever feel stressed? Overwhelmed? Struggle to cope with everything life throws at you?

My wellness warriors (Nigel and Matt) and I from Move & Nourish, have designed a Relaxation Day which offers a series of meditation exercises & relaxation techniques combined with some gentle stretches and yoga poses to enable you to better cope with the stresses of everyday life and implement lasting and meaningful changes to get some calm in your life and get some control!

After a hugely successful and positive Relaxation Day in July, we delighted to offer another even next on Sunday 27th September 2015.

The day will begin at 10:00am with a super tasty green smoothie on arrival as Nigel & Aimie introduce themselves and welcome you. The day will then gently flow through the perfect mixture of movement and stillness (and lots of delicious & healthy food!) leaving you with a sense of calmness and peace. The day will finish at around 4:30pm.

In addition, you will be provided with a fresh, awesome, raw-some lunch and refreshments will be available throughout the day. All the food and drink will be freshly prepared, will be alkaline, vegetarian & vegan friendly and will be suitable for those who have coeliac disease, suffer from psoriasis and IBS as well as being lactose and sugar-free!!

Our Relaxation Day’s have been specifically designed for anyone who wants to feel amazing, have a greater sense of calmness and de-stress and unwind. It is aimed at anyone who has been interested in meditation but has never tried it and those who have meditated but perhaps need a refresher! The exercises and yoga poses are suitable for all fitness types.

We are very happy to offer the Relaxation Day for just £75 per person for anyone who books their place before Thursday 20th August 2015. And there after, the price will be a fantastic £100!

So what are you waiting for??

We hope to see you all there!!
