Bikini workshop: Nu Barre and Vegan Diet

by Tuesday, March 14, 2017

I love all the Beach bodies at every age, especially after 40′. The reality is combining Dance based Workouts and Vegan Diet can really change your Shape. As every technique, mine is focused on feminine bodies with long and lean muscles and the quality of the proteins we eat changes the consistency of the muscle and the shapeability. I have been working with some of the hottest bodies, models and actresses in one to one and group classes, and my aim is always the same: slim down and create long, lean definition  Im totally disagree with bulky females bodies… The good news is I discovered on myself that eating Vegan make everything in your body more efficient: the thinking and the workout…body and brain!

Did you know that a lot of  philosophers and thinkers have been Vegan? It sounds austere, but actually is just a favour that you do to your body!
 The earliest vegetarian diet, way back in the sixth century B.C. and long before the term “vegetarian” was coined, was the Pythagorean Diet. The Greek philosopher Pythagoras, strongly believed in the reincarnation of the soul and preached an ethical lifestyle that included injunctions against killing living creatures, whether through animal sacrifice or for the eating of meat. His prescribed diet was very close to today’s vegan diet.
According to historical documents, Pythagoras told his followers, “Oh, my fellow men! Do not defile your bodies with sinful foods. We have corn, we have apples bending down the branches with their weight, and grapes swelling on the vines. There are sweet-flavored herbs, and vegetables which can be cooked and softened over the fire, nor are you denied milk or thyme-scented honey. The earth affords a lavish supply of riches, of innocent foods, and offers you banquets that involve no bloodshed or slaughter:  only beasts satisfy their hunger with flesh, and not even all of those, because horses, cattle, and sheep live on grass.”
There are 3 reasons why I think I feel better eating Vegan:
– ENERGY
Animal-based foods require so much energy for the body to not only digest, but also to break down and eliminate the excess wastes. It robs my energy… These foods also don’t have the raw source of nutrition like plant-based foods do because they’re higher on the food chain;
– RECOVERY
Plant-based athletes normally also recover much more quickly because there is less inflammation in the body, therefore athletes don’t need as much “down time” to get back on track. This allows athletes to spend less time dealing with muscle aches and pains, and have more time to practice their sport and reach their goals. I can do more classes than before;
– ANTIAGE
Exercise ages the body, even though it’s necessary to keep us healthy. Tearing down our muscles isn’t easy on the body, but the right nutrition plan can help reduce the aging effects of exercise naturally by supporting the body on a cellular level. Animal-based proteins on the other hand, contribute to aging, due to its detrimental effects on the body.
When we combine those factors, if you are a lover of lean, long body, feminine but strong and well balanced you will burst your own body toward a new experience: you will feel light, energetic, aware, alert.
A Workshop coming in May…
May will be the month of Lean Bold Bodies… every Saturday a 2 hours workshop for 4 people: recepies for 2 weeks plan and home exercises,  for mums and business women with no time!
You will have 10 exercise in total: 5 in the first week and 5 in the second week and a diet plan for the 2 weeks.
  • Week 1 – Repeat  every day each exercise 15 min in total… Eat, following the plan, last meal 7 pm at night !
  • Week 2 Repeat every day each exercise of week one + week 2 exercises 30 min in total… All the exercises need to be performed in a row,  without stopping! Eat, following the plan, until 9 pm at night !
  • If you are quite new to exercise then it’s fine to stick to one set of each exercise until you are ready to up the tempo, if you are terribly angry in the first 3 days add some Smothies

Just to be very clear… I’m not a nutritionist, so it is always better if you have problems or you are not sure about dieting,  ask your doctor before you embrace my suggestions! Veganism is not for everyone, but if you can try even for 2 weeks, you will love feeling your body from the inside out everyday. Sweating and working all muscle groups. Cleaning out  and pushing every physical limits is exhilarating!
Start slow and stay consistent!
