Many of you may have heard about our LOVE Your Body (Like Never Before…) Challenge. This is a 60 day challenge designed and formulated by our team of fitness instructors, healers and therapists to dramatically promote loving yourself from the inside out, physically, spiritually and mentally. To kick off this 60 day challenge we decided to encourage our clients, fans, friends and their friends to write to us and tell us WHY they were worth winning the LOVE Your Body Challenge.
The winner of this challenge receives 30 fitness class credits, nutritional information, guidance, & analysis, guided meditations, chakra balancing, one career intuitive counseling session, reiki, intuitive readings, measurements of the transformation of the body, before and after pictures, exclusive fit tips, recipes and daily inspirations.
This over $600 value was given away to our winner, Michelle Oliveira. Michelle’s story showed a tremendous amount of commitment, compassion and honoring a time of transition in her life. We were compelled to choose her as our inspiration and catalyst for many other women, who choose to ignore what it is their intuition, feelings and inner guidance is telling them.
With Michelle as our challenge winner, she is already living proof that everything begins within you. You are the only person who is the keeper of your key; you are the only person who can unlock your own true potential of what it is you so desire.
So just how is it going so far?
Last week we kicked off the challenge with “before” pictures, body measurements and a brief consultation about what it is Michelle is looking to achieve. So far Michelle has taken many of the different types of classes we offer, 5 in total.
In just one week, I am seeing her transform her awareness about fitness. If you take my class, I’m a broken record of reminders about how working out starts inward- through balance and breath, that our physical bodies are only manifestations of thoughts from the past. Here is quick blurb of what Michelle wrote to me last week (notice how her perspective changes at the end…)
I won the love your body challenge at Mind Body Barre and I have to say it’s really hard to love your body when you’re not happy with it…
I have to say I feel great! I feel like I have a little more energy and that’s just after the first few days imagine how I will feel when I’ve been doing this exercise thing consistently for a month LOL!!! I am pleased with myself for now. It’s just baby steps but I know once this challenge is done I will feel much better about myself.
As I go through this journey with Michelle, I also feel like I am in part on your journey too. You all teach me something powerful each day; we are built of so many intricate facets- the human body and brain, the mind, the spirit, layers of emotion and all the different characters we must play to different people; mother, daughter, sister, wife, friend, father, brother, husband and so on. Each of you shows a powerful message just by walking through our studio doors, to honor the essence of your divine being and who you are for your own hour.
