On the 14th April 2018, Love Pilates Movement Studio delved into the land of workshops for teenage girls.
As well as being passionate about movement, we are passionate about imparting knowledge, generating positive change and a belief in a mostly natural approach to all things body. Humans have such an inherent ability to move and to heal. If we give it the right tools, we can help our bodies do what they do best, keep us well and healthy. To keep us in a state of homeostasis. And that is what we wanted to share with our girls.
Dominique Beaumont from Movement for Living, presented a talk on hormone health and how to listen to your body’s needs during our monthly cycle. How to feed ourselves, how to nurture and release the constant state of expectation that we live with on a daily basis. How to listen, and respond to our needs. Because no one else will.
We then had the movement section where we woke up the nervous system, reminding the body that change is good, and getting upside down can be both doable and fun.
We ended with a mediation and a vegan lunch from Wild Sprout in Cape Town.
The morning was a great success and partly due to the most AWESOME sponsors who came on board to share their products with our teenage girls. We tried to keep the products to the most useful, and the most fun, as well as challenging their taste buds with some foodie products.
We would like to say thank you for being so generous and for helping to make the day such a success.

Collaboration is communication.
