Recently I have just come back from a trip to China. I first went to Shanghai and then Hong Kong. The reason for my trip was to explore my options for starting a active wear label of my own. Why?? The answer: because I'm in it all day and nearly everyday so why not create something that I like to wear and work-out in. I was very fortunate to have some help on the way so I was able to meet with a manufacturer in Hong Kong who will make the clothes for me. It's very exciting to see what was an idea over a pizza in Woollahra come to fruition. I've still got a way to go yet!!! I'm looking forward to seeing where this new journey will take me. New beginnings are sometimes scary and exciting all at the same time. MsGreenSt here we come!!
After a full week of teaching pilates, yoga and fitness I needed to treat myself and do my own workout. I really love getting on the pilates reformer as it makes me connect with me core straight away and also lengthens and strengthens the muscles. The great thing is you can get creative with the exercises as well. In this picture I was doing the backbend exercise which is perfect for opening the front of the body, especially the chest. If you feel like you've been slouching over a desk all week a bit of back extension will do wonders for your posture. Give it a try!!
