#throwback to one of my favourite pics from Zakynthos, my last destination. 💙🌍 It was in Zakynthos I realized that it was time for a change. I didn’t want to but I had to. Working the season life for three seasons and six hotels in total (yes, when everyone else took time off btwn the seasons I took the opportunity to work at yet another hotel for some weeks.) was too much on my body. It would probably have saved me to get a local contract in Spain where you get two days off every week and they actually have good physios. And for two months that was all I wanted. Later to be realized that I was being seriously kicked in the face by a form of the Stockholm syndrome. Falling in love with a place that kept me from growing in my usual speed. Taking the job for TUI was one of the best things I’ve ever done. Not for the amazing work conditions (sorry TUI, I was never a great liar 🤷🏼♀️) but for the insight, wanderlust and realizations that awoke within me. I spent seven months in four different TUI teams, all with amazing work ethics. We were not all best friends outside work but we got our numbers. 💪🏼🏆✨ But having one day off every week (1,5 if I was lucky) for 1,5 years was heavy on my poor body. And if the brain isn’t smart enough to quit (mine was NOT) the body has to decide. So what now? What have I been doing since I got back to Sweden? Well...to be continued... __________________________________________________________ #hindsightis2020#wanderlust#greece#zakynthos#tsilivi#instructor#instructorlife#theworldismyoffice#beachgirl#bikini#gymnastics#dance#turqoisewater#oceanlove#dayoff
S M I L E It's funny how sometimes the simplest of actions can feel the most challenging, right? A smile is just an activation of a few facial muscles, but it has the power to alter the emotional state of yourself and all who see it 😁 ------- So even if your feeling down, frustrated or anything other that happy, SMILE. ------- Everytime you smile, you begin to have a little party in your brain as you release serotonin (anti-depressant). ------- This reaction simultaneously makes you look more friendly, approachable, relaxed and sincere. ------- So even if you're not a "smiler", start now for your benefit as well as for the benefit of everybody who sees you before, during and after class. 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁
Insight on Insights —————————— It’s been exactly 1 month since I’ve posted to my feed. This wasn’t planned. (In fact, it was the last thing I should do considering 90% of my business is online) ———— While active, according to my insights, I average anywhere from 30-40k in profile visits/weekly. I make “impressions” on anywhere from 90k-110k. During my hiatus, I received an average of 2K in profile visits/week (@kristenschaffrath claims this was likely all her watching my handstand push-up video. I won’t contest.) My “impressions”? Almost nonexistent. I missed the Christmas posts. I missed the New Years posts. I missed 10 year challenges & “stay on track with your resolutions” motivational jargon that comes with the territory of my job. ————- What I didn’t miss? Living. I spent my Christmas with my family for the first time in 4 years. I spent New Years surrounded by some of the best people I’ve met. I walked my dogs. I neglected my workouts & ate purely potato based foods. I had brunches & coffees & @soulcycle classes that made my heart explode from joy. I watched my clients make huge strides in their journeys & looked up photos of myself from 10 years ago just for the hell of it (don’t worry -you didn’t miss much) To me, this was the most “connected” I’ve been in a long time. ———— Although she’s back in posting action, I’m holding true to this: Impressions do matter ; but it’s the ones we make with the people around us that mean the most. #bittersweat
Recovery is just important as the work. 💆🏻♀️ This has always been a hard-learned lesson for me. I’ve always been the person to burn the candle at both ends until there’s nothing left to burn. 🔥 I’m trying to change things so that this mentality doesn’t apply to my body. It’s okay to dial back; to do what feels good, regardless of what everyone else is doing. And prioritizing time for myself to recharge physically, mentally, and emotionally is essential. My job requires me to be “on” 100% if the time and that means body and mind. Took this afternoon to head over to @revitalab_chi for some Cryo and @ntrecovery hips/back. Felt like a pair of hockey pants was squishing me but felt so good on the other side 😂 back to feeling 💯 and ready to rock!

Deus está em mim onde quer que eu esteja, e nas vezes que eu me sinto só, me sinto perdida dentro de mim mesma, eu fecho meus olhos por alguns segundos e realmente converso com ele. Eu lembro de fazer isso desde que eu era criança, quando eu sinto que me falta algo, eu procuro rapidamente me conectar com tudo que preenche minha vida, para acessar a gratidão. Essa que é uma frequência de cura, ahhh e como reconhecer ela, me curou. Ainda tem muito pra eu aprender, mas eu nunca mais parei de intuir pela cura da minha alma. Tudo que eu já pensei com real vontade na minha vida, aconteceu. A força do pensamento é mais magnética do que a capacidade humana pode imaginar. Hoje eu intuo luz, muita luz pra minha vida. E que essa minha luz cresça e eu possa compartilhar com todo o universo através de um abraço verdadeiro, ouvir alguém atentamente, sentir como eu posso auxiliar uma pessoa a conquistar sonhos, tirar um sorriso num momento de dor. Eu sou muito grata pelas pessoas que estão conectadas a mim. Eu sou muito grata por poder viver, e quando eu me esquecer disso, que a luz interna que existe em mim, me relembre sempre como é a força e a potência do calor do sol, como é o dinamismo do vento, como é a pureza da água, como é a firmeza das raizes das árvores... #lifestyle#keepwalking#thanksgod#gratefullness#meditation#alonelife#bebetter#instructorlife#flying#dubaidesert#bahrain#growing#strongmind#yogalife

•Canfitpro FIS Graduate• Thinking of working in fitness? Check out Avallon’s story and you too could have your very own “fun job”! 😎 Testimonial: “Two year ago I made the decision to take the fitness instructor specialization course with Stephanie through canfitpro. At this time, I wasn’t sure if I had what it takes to get up in front of a group of people and motivate them. I remember feeling especially concerned of what I would need to do to keep them coming back for more. Stephanie and canfitpro provided me the skills to captivate people, gain confidence, and gain knowledge. I currently teach seven classes per week. My day usually starts by teaching a class at 7 AM before I go to my office job. When people ask me how I do it my answer is simple. I could not do my office job without it! It provides balance in my life. Group fitness brings community, health and energy that I feed off of to get through my work days. It has allowed me to build a community that is integrated in my life, and that I could not imagine living without.” #canfitpro#fitnessinstructors#groupfitness#groupfitnessinstructor#instructorlife#gymrat#fitfam#fitnessmotivation#believeitachieveit

Feeling so grateful and incredibly re-energized right now. Picking up my life and moving countries was beyond hard in so many ways, but not knowing what the future held for my career was probably the hardest part. Fate has always played its hands in my life and I have always trusted the shots it called, and this time was no exception. These last few weeks I have not only been insanely inspired, but I have also been challenged to have great trust in my self and my abilities! I couldn’t be more excited for the new projects I’m about to start working on at @spn.fit and things to come over the next few months. What’s the secret to finding a job you love? There isn’t one! Work your ASS off, follow your passion, believe in yourself, always challenge yourself to learn new things and seek to surround yourself with people who do all the above too. Watch this space!
