Andrew Body Code Testimonial

I’ve been working with Aimie now as my Body Code Coach for about 30 sessions. I have seen significant changes in many areas of my life. I feel like a very different person to who I was before this.
I’ve been lugging around emotions and patterns for many years, and through her work as a coach, she has very gently helped me let these go. For me, this has led to:-

* an improved relationship with my wife. Little things that used to nag me, just don’t anymore (this is huge for me)
* more money. We did a lot of work on blocks I have had in my business. There was one month in there that after a session with Aimie, we sent on to have a record month. We usually make about $130k per month and in this month we did $270k so more than doubled.

I feel more at peace, and she is now working with my wife and seeing amazing results with her as well.

Thank you so much Aimie. What you do is truly remarkable and I really hope people get to experience you. I propose you get a 10 pack of coaching calls and work with her for a longer period to really reap the rewards. I highly recommend this work.

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

A bit of yoga fun…

Hey Lovely People!

As I do practise a lot of exercise myself and with my clients (it’s not all green smoothies and raw cheesecakes – wink) I thought I’d share with you some fun moves you can expect sneaking into classes… I’ve take open-bend-stretch from yoga and had a little play, so in this first video I’m flipping the move into wild-thing, which is a version of side plank, it feels amazing and is lovely in the shoulders, the abdomen, obliques and makes you feel a bit of a yoga bad-ass! Wooo Hooo!!

This move is a functional surfer jump up that I’ve been practicing for my own surfing, which I love, its fun and nice to feel springy! In Vinyassa Flow they do a lot of quick moves, so this is great to get you moving, I also love tweaking it in the transverse plane (twisting) to give the hips and feet some variety!

Now, I love this one, simply walking from high-lunge to the other side with the add in of the open-bend-stretch to really get the hips moving and to teach the body that movement is still fun and safe! Your high lunge will become so much more open with this move!

This is really fun too… I like to call this the slough crawl, slow and steady and totally functional! It’s so important to be able to easily hold your own body weight and to be able to move easily in many different ways, I’m playing with crawling a lot at the moment as it really does get the entire body moving and it’s fun! It’s also really rewarding to feel your body getting stronger and feeling these moves getting easier!

I hope you enjoy these moves!

Have an awesome day!

Love Aimie xx

I love BBQ…

Hello Food Fans!

If you are anything like me you will totally love summer and all of the delicious foods that come with it… sun ripened strawberries, fresh juices and salads, super sweet fruits and BBQ’s!! “Say what? BBQ? Aren’t you vegan?” I hear you cry, yes I am, but that doesn’t stop me totally enjoying delicious foods, I just have to be creative… So here are my best three easy BBQ meal ideas…

unnamed-6

 

This was my first and quickest BBQ inspired meal…

BBQ Raw Pepper Burgers and Sweet Fries

1. simply chopped sweet potatoes, slowly cooked in a little coconut oil.

2. cut an orange pepper into 3 slices and fill with sliced avocado and broccoli or alfalfa sprouts (found in any good health food shop)

3. Top off with a slice of tomato and a little organic mustard (I had to get mine from wholefoods as every other place had nasty preservatives or E numbers in – we can do better than that right?)

4. Add a little pink Himalayan Salt and black pepper and any extra sprouts (highly nutritious and definitely a food you want in your weekly food intake) And enjoy!

Watermelon-aide

 

As it’s summer, we definitely need some beautiful hydrating food in our lives, so this amazingly quick watermelon juice is perfect! Simply chop the melon up and blend until smooth… that’s it! (A few posts down you should find a video on how to do this…)

BBQ Quinoa Wraps

This is a variation of my mongo wraps in my book, ‘Nourish with Aimie’ using nice big spring green leaves we get a fantastic base of alkalising greens, fibre and alkalising minerals with loads of taste…

1. Cook the quinoa for 15 minutes while prepping the rest of the food. After 15, take off the heat and allow to absorb remaining fluid and add in some BBQ spices, I used an organic BBQ mix I found in Las Vegas Wholefoods, but any sugar free mix will work

2. Wash your green and slice out the middle ‘vein’ that’s too tough to eat (can be juiced later) chop avocado and peppers, pick any herbs, I used micro herbs I’ve grown at home, coriander and cress, so easy and delicious!

3. Down one side of the ‘vein’ simply fill with quinoa, veggies and avo and some mustard (as before) then roll the filled side to the centre, fold in both ends and finish rolling to create your wrap and cut in half…That’s it! Enjoy!

In my next blog I will share with you my BBQ burgers and raw coleslaw! Yum! Happy Tuesday!xx

“The more you do… the more you can do”

Hello!!! Happy Monday all! I hope you are all well!

I just had to share a little story about a wonderful lady I train, Julie, she is an amazing woman, with an amazing daughter and beautiful grandchildren! Julie always inspires me with her amazing attitude, never ending kindness and the love she has for her family!

Julie is also very determined and when she sets her sights on a goal nothing gets in her way…

Last week Julie text me to say she couldn’t get to training this week as she looks after her grandchildren in the day, so could she have another session that week (rather than missing a week or catching up at some time, she wanted to get it in!)… well, I was very impressed and I told her so on her second session that week and she said how much she was enjoying training and her green smoothies, she’s looking fantastic, but feels so much better and the best thing is that she enjoys it!

She then said, ‘the more you do, the more you can do!’ So simple, but so true and I thought this advise might just help anyone reading this. It’s not about trying to do everything a once, but adding in better things along the way. For example, as you move more the more you are able to move with ease, the more weights you lift the more weight you can lift, the more green smoothies you make the quicker and more efficient you become, the longer you prepare healthy meals for (weeks, into months, into years) it just becomes habit and we become more efficient, it seems like it becomes easier and just part of our lives.

With many of my client’s you find very quickly that the things they found really tough in the beginning end up being more of a warm up after a few weeks, goals we’ve worked on end becoming easy and we strive for new challenges. Things we had to get ourselves physically or mentally prepared for become easy and effortless!

So, if you have a goal, just start, the longer you keep pursuing that goal the closer you will get and as Julie says, ‘the more you do, the more you can do!

Go Julie!xx

30 day yoga challenge

IMG_3808

 

As some of you will know I love yoga, I might not be the best at it and have been known to fall out of my headstands giggling, but it’s super fun to learn new things and we only fall down to pick ourselves back up. I started up again 3 years ago because I wanted to try something new and learn how to do cool tricks – I wanted a new challenge!

I had actually started doing yoga when I was 15 and I’d been begging my dad for a gym membership for my 16th birthday in my plan to become Angelina Jolie after watching gone in 60 seconds, I wanted to lose weight and be a bad ass! Up until that point I’d always quit everything I’d started, violin, guitar, basket ball, judo (1 lesson) so he set me a challenge, to lose 1 stone, then I could have a gym membership as my birthday present. I was 15, a size 18 and had no idea how to lose weight, I asked the doctor who said to go running…no chance! So I bought myself a yoga video (yes, video, it was 14 years ago) and I just started doing the 10 minute warm up every day, within a few weeks I’d changed, I looked taller, slimmer, I felt wonderful and I was well on my way to getting that gym membership!

That 10 minutes daily changed my life and I’d like to challenge you to see if just 10 minutes a day could change your life too!

I will post 3 little yoga video’s for you to try at home and see what happens if you just do one of these a day…
