I have been training and staying active my whole life. Running, playing tennis, lifting weights, riding my bike or doing something else active. It´s just my lifestyle. It came with my dna and comes natural to me. But, I´ve only trained my physical body, like running or lifting weights. I used to do yoga many years ago, but only for the physical part. I never understood what the big deal with yoga was. And sitting still, doing pranayama, was a little bit of wasting my time, so I thought. Not to mention meditation. Even though I knew a lot about the theory of yoga and meditation, and the great things it did to your body, I wasn't there yet. And you can´t always learn from books. You have to experience it. I had red hundreds of articles about how yoga could change peoples lives. How they ”get to know” themselves, their thoughts, feelings and how they really feel. Ha !!!
Now, I´m one of them 💜 But it didn´t come natural for me. It came to me for a reason. I had to force myself into doing yoga and meditation every day, because I got sick. And I knew it was good for me. A few years ago my body had had enough of me stressing around. My doctor told me to go home and rest and cancel everything in my agenda. My body was worn out and I couldn´t do anything for months. I was so tired and my body could barely move from the bed to the bathroom. Because I was used to hitting the gas all the time and didn´t really understand when it was time to hit the brake. And this thing with staying at home doing nothing, wasn´t my thing. But this time I knew that I couldn´t just rest for a couple of days and then go back to my old routines. This time was different. I needed serious tools to help me heal. And that´s how I began my journey to understanding the essence of yoga. And I´m so greatful for that now. But it wasn´t easy. It was a little like getting to know the new me. The mind training was hard, as well as the understanding and the acceptance. I tell you, meditating for three minutes was a huge challenge. It felt like three hours. Today I love it.
The yoga and the meditation became my tools, my joy, my life force to becoming well, and also a wonderful part of my new life.
Me and yoga became best friends, after some ups and downs.
And one thing led to another & I also became a yoga teacher.
I already had the running and also the weight training and other physical activities, and now I got yoga as a gift.
This is where SKY training was born. Strength, K (c) ardio and Yoga.
The three most important things when it comes to fitness and becoming really strong, from the inside & out. In your head & body.
During the SKY training program, you will have the pleasure of enjoying all of these things. I will guide you every day in whatever program you choose. And please join the FB community to share your experiences with other sky training members. Sharing is caring 💜
If you follow the program you choose (together with my food recommendation, less stress & an overall healthier lifestyle), I promise that you will get in the shape of your life. Not only physically, but also mentally. I am with you all the way, if you promise to give all that you have.
So, what are you waiting for. Lets do this !!!!
My philosophy - Our bodies are divided in two parts that needs to work together in order to become one.
1. One physical body that needs challenges by strength or cardio training.
2. One mental body (your mind & soul) that needs rest, recharging, responsiveness and thoughtfulness.
The physical body always needs challenges. That is what it´s build for. Not sitting still in front of the computer. We need to be active in all kind of ways, every day. Always. If we do not use the body, the way it´s designed for, it will slowly become ill.
The mental part is as important as the physical. I repeat. It´s as important. If not even more important. We need to feed it every day by being nice to ourselves, thinking positive thoughts, hang around with nice people that gives us energy, breath, and give ourselves time to reflect. Just give yourself a moment every day to just land where you stand.
Though we are gonna live with ourselves every day, for the rest of our lives. So it´s time we get to know ourselves. No one else is gonna knock on your door and do it for you.
Being in harmony with yourself is the core to a good life. If you have that, you can pretty much handle anything that happens to you, or around you, with all the crazy things that´s going on in the world right now. The challenges and adventures of life.
If you picture a house, where the walls and the roof represent the muscles of your body, and the base/fundament is your soul. It all becomes clear that you cannot build a house without a fundament. At the same time, you can not build a house with just the fundament, without roof or walls. We need both. Are you with me on that? We need the body and the soul to connect with one another. They cannot live separate lives. It´s impossible.
It took me 40 years to figure that one out. But when I realized that, a lot of other things fell in to place💜
