Today is Postive Thinking Day. A day to remember and reflect on all positive in our lives.

“The mind is everything. What you think you become.”

Says Buddha. Others say our mind is like a garden .. and the thoughts are beautiful flowers …. or useless weeds …. as we wish. Yes. As we wish…. Because we have that fundamental power to choose what we want to attend to..
Can you agree that our thoughts set our mood? And our mood has an impact on our actions.
With positive attitude you can experience pleasant and happy feelings. This brings brightness to your eyes, more energy and happiness. Your whole being broadcasts good will, happiness and success. Even your health is affected in a beneficial way. You walk tall, your voice is more powerful, and your body language shows the way you feel.
Contrarily, negative thoughts drain you of energy and keep you from being in the present moment. The more you give in to your negative thoughts, the stronger they become. Just imagine a small ball rolling along the ground, and as it rolls, it becomes bigger and faster…
That’s what one small negative thought can turn into: a huge, speeding ball of ugliness.

A small positive thought can have the same effect, but blossoming into a beautiful outcome.

But what can you do to overcome any negative thought?
Well…a lot of things…▷ Meditate and do mindful physical exercises, such as Pilates or Yoga
▷ Smile
▷ Surround yourself with positive people
▷ Change the tone of your thoughts from negative to positive
▷ Believe that you create your life and can take responsibility. Is it worth playing the victim?
▷ List the things you are grateful in that moment … and do it often
▷ Remember that no-one is perfect and let yourself move forward
▷ Help someone
▷ Sing. Oh yes…

Change your thoughts …. and you change your world.

Find gratitude for the simplest things on Earth.
Celebrate today. This is going to be a very good day.
Happy Positive Thinking.

Dear All,

I hope you are all doing safe and sound, living through this experience with curiosity and enjoying all the good things it is bringing to us all.  

I would like to thank you for all your lovely messages and checking-in: they helped me feel valuable and connected,  and know I am not alone in these challenging times. I have been through a strong emotional rollercoaster the past last weeks; from meeting my fears and demons and embracing my sorrow, to laughing an immense lot and finding moments of deep inner peace. We are all in this together. 

But the time has finally come that I am making this decision happily from my heart; as of next week Respirit Pilates is going online and we will guide your Pilates practice on the mat, streaming live. 
I am grateful for my teachers that they can spare some time within their up-side-down daily schedule with family around, and also for Lena who will also be back to reinforce us in this experiment. 
Here you are the practicalities:

  • For the moment we will offer open level classes. We will guide you to the average level of those present in the class and give you some modifications as much as it is possible under the circumstances. 
  • You will need a calm corner with fresh air and a mat for yourself. Please prepare some accessories; a chair with back rest, a towel and anything serving as weights in your hand (bottle of water, pack of rice, etc. 0.5-1kg), so that we can enjoy some fun variations every now and then.
  • You can stream the classes on any device through the free Zoom application; download it and check the audio function beforehand. 
  • As of tomorrow you can register into the classes via Mindbody at latest 60 minutes before the class and we will send you a link to the live stream 15 minutes before the start. 
    We will need minimum 4 people into each class; below that number we retain the right to cancel.
  • Please make sure your email address is updated within your profile in Mindbody and that you allow the system to send you auto-emails. If you do not get the link, please check your junk folder, too. 
  • You can either use your existing mat cards or purchase any of our new online pricing options: 10 sessions for 100€ or a drop-in for 15€.

This will be a new experience for many of us; learning new technologies, new ways of teaching and secrets of our bodies, as well as letting others closer to us as we peak into each other`s private life a bit.  Let`s face it together with grace and compassion. I cannot wait to seeing your happy faces again. 
I truly appreciate all your continuing support through this challenging time. Let`s have faith that we will get out stronger on the other side, both individually and as a our loved Respirit community together. 

I wish you good health; feel safe and stay strong.
