Näyttelijä Halle Berryä ei uskoisi päivääkään yli 50-vuotiaaksi. Nainen täyttää tänä vuonna 52, ja uskoo liikunnan ja terveellisen ruokavalion voimaan. Oscar-palkittu nainen on esitellyt jooga-asentoja Instagramissa.
Kerroimme äskettäin Halle Berryn näyttelevän ensi vuonna valmistuvassa Joch Wick 3 -elokuvassa. Hiljaiseloa julkisuudesta pitänyt nainen on ikäisekseen erinomaisessa kunnossa. Nainen on kertonut noudattavan hiilihydraatitonta ruokavaliota sekä harrastavansa säännöllisesti joogaa.
Jooga toimii hänen mukaansa myös mielen hyvinvoinnin tukena. Kahden lapsen äiti on onnistunut säilyttämään upean vartalon ikäisekseen. Nainen poistaa mielensä murheita jooga-asennoissa pysyen ja mielikuvaharjoitteluita niiden aikana tehden.
This #FitnessFriday is dedicated to the importance of stretching! After I work out, it’s important for me to stretch and lengthen. Fitness is not just about running, lifting and punching. For me, being athletic and super fit is also about being still, stretching and breathing. Including stretching in my fitness program helps my muscles stay long, limber, improves my mobility and range of motion and, most importantly, helps me avoid injuries. This is one of my favorite #yoga poses, the shoulder stand, that stretches my lower spine and legs. I feel 2 inches taller after this stretch! Some people use yoga poses to manage stress, increase circulation, for medication, recovery, better sleep, and mobility just to name a few. Check out my Fitness IG Story to see a stretch I like for hip mobility that lengthens my sides and for today's #keto meal. Today I challenge you to share your best yoga pose. If you don't have one, I encourage you to search for one, post about it, tag #FitnessFridayHB and tell me how it makes you feel. ❤️🙏🏽
Hey everybody, it’s Fitness ”Yoga” Friday! Many have asked me to explain how I actually meditate. I think we all can agree that throughout our journey called life, we find ourselves in situations where we feel defeated, hurt, insecure, betrayed unhappy, angry, lonely, scared and so on. I’ve learned that in my darkest hours, my inner strength is most available to me. I’d like to share with you a simple #meditation that helps me connect to that inner strength and move more easily through the tough times. First, I get myself into a pose or position where my physical strength is slightly challenged. I’ve been working hard to perfect the #crow pose for this meditation. It's important that I choose a pose I know I can hold for at least 5 minutes. Depending on your fitness level, choose a pose or position that works for you. For the first minute, I start by bringing my mind to whatever unpleasant issue I’m facing and I hold these feelings in my mind's eye. Then for one minute, I tell the feelings to leave my body. As I do this, I imagine the feelings leaving my body and dancing in front of me. Soon the feelings leave and I feel a lightness come over me. For the next minute, I try to create a welcoming space for those feelings. I’ve found that resistance only makes them stronger. I let the feelings play out, and I allow myself to imagine the worse thing that could happen if I held onto those feelings. For another minute, I tell myself that I have ultimate power over those feelings and I imagine the best possible outcome of my problematic situation. I spend the last minute being in a space of gratitude, feeling physically healthy, mentally strong and well. Works for me! Give it a try, what do you have to lose? Today in my Stories and Fitness Highlight you'll find two crow exercises. Share your meditative pose by tagging #FitnessFridayHB and let me know what works for you. Enjoy 💪🏽❤️ @lolewomen @nike #FitnessFriday
Boom! 💥 #FitnessFriday yawl. Today it’s all about the kettlebell. It’s probably one of the most versatile pieces of equipment and it has become a staple in the fitness world. You can get a total body workout if your let your imagination go. You can swing it, pull it, push it, throw it, curl it, squat with it, walk and run with it and stretch with it….you get the picture! You know the great part about the #kettlebell workout? You don’t actually need a kettlebell to do it. You can grab a hefty-sized water bottle and get the same workout. Per usual, we share a few exercises to get you started, but we also challenge you to create your own kettlebell/water bottle flow and share it with the tag #FitnessFridayHB. You can also find my #keto lunch for the day on my Stories and Fitness Highlight on my profile. Enjoy 💪🏽❤️ @koral
Yay it’s #FitnessFriday! So many of you have asked about my meditation routine. A few months ago I had the good fortune of traveling to India and it was a life changing experience. While there, I met a yogi master who led me in meditation for 2.5 hours!! That was a first for me. The experience not only profoundly changed me, but it inspired me to never go a day without some sort of meditation. So, today I share with you my favorite spot to meditate at home. In the far back of my garden, I have a spot that’s super secluded with a fountain. I feel safe there, and the sound of running water relaxes me. I make sure I have on comfortable clothes and I decide for how long I’m going to meditate. I set my alarm so that I’m sure to reach my goal. I usually do some stretching first so that my body feels loose and stress-free. I then find a comfortable position that I can stay in for at least 30 minutes. I close my eyes and begin. I start by focusing only on my breathing. I try to clear my mind of everything. This is not easy to do, so don’t feel bad if you struggle for a while. Stick with it, I promise it does get easier. When thoughts creep in my mind, I gently push them away and get back to focusing on my breathing. Once I’m able to clear my mind, I start to repeat whatever mantra I have for day or I simply listen to the thoughts that come to me. Many yogi’s believe this is the time to hear the messages from your higher self, your higher power, the universe, Mother Earth or God! I let them wash over me, absorbing all that comes up. When I’m done, I have ultimate clarity and I feel at peace. Today I hope you can find at least 10 minutes to meditate. Trust me, it will start to transform your thinking, which will change your life. The time is not the key, the intention is. I encourage you to share a photo of you in your favorite mediation spot and tag #FitnessFridayHB! On my IG Stories I’m sharing my #Keto meal for the day and an exercise that complements a good meditation session. It’s called a Hindu push-up. It strengthens your upper body, decompresses your lower spine and provides a great stretch which is perfect before or after #meditation. Namaste 🙏🏽❤️
It’s #FitnessFriday AGAIN! Today I’m proud to share my new #yoga pose. Thanks to all of you, I got super inspired and challenged myself to a head stand! I continue to challenge each of you to try new poses as well and share them with me by tagging #FitnessFridayHB. Today, let’s talk not just about yoga poses, but also about the meditative aspects of yoga. Many argue that some of the happiest people are those who spend time each day meditating. I can tell you that I’ve felt happier and more like my best self since I started. I’ve learned that meditation helps to balance your left brain and right brain, and as a result I feel more creative, I can absorb information faster and I experience better emotional health. #Meditation also helps me stay in touch with my “little me”, that little girl who keeps me curious and open to the newness of each day and every new experience that comes my way. Meditation keeps me connected to God, Mother Earth, a higher power or whatever you prefer, and reminds me that while we are all on a solo journey, we are never alone! So today, if you don’t already, try to find 20 minutes to meditate or pray. If you can make this ritual a part of your dailies, watch how your life will transform! Also today on my IG Stories and fitness highlight, I’m sharing my keto lunch. Enjoy 💪🏽❤️
