Happy Friday Beauties!
Can you believe we almost have a full week under our belt?
It’s been such a fun week and there is SO much more to come. Including more big giveaways (have you entered this week’s yet?).
Before I introduce today’s guest instructor I want to remind you that today is the LAST day to upgrade and maximize your results. If you’ve been enjoying the free workouts you’ll LOVE the upgrade workouts.
Here’s what the upgrade includes:
- 3 20-minute full body Summer Sculpt videos. You get to download these and keep them forever. They are designed to give you the most bang for your buck – 20 minutes, full body, maximum efficiency.
- Goal Setting Worksheets so that you can focus in on what you want to accomplish by the end of this challenge. Why not make the most of it?
- A Summer Vision Guide that goes beyond goal setting and helps you create a vision of how you want to feel in your skin and as a well-rounded woman. It will help make your goals a reality.
The idea behind the upgrade is that it’s not required but it’s an option for those of you who want to take it to the next level and really get the most out of this challenge (it’s only $27).
I’ll send you a new 20 minute video every Friday afternoon for you to do over the weekend. That way you never have a break in your schedule and you continue challenging your body day in and day out. The first one will arrive in your inbox in just a few hours! 🙂
(10% of your upgrade will be donated to Women For Women International)
Now, on to today’s workout….
I’m thrilled to introduce this week’s guest instructor, Sarah Beth.
Sarah Beth has an incredibly popular YouTube channel and I regularly enjoy doing her workouts from the comfort of my own home. Perfect during nap time or late at night to wind down after a long day.
Let me introduce you…
Sarah Beth is a full-time yoga instructor living in the Denver area. She first discovered the power of yoga when she was 16 years old, and after years of an on/off practice she developed a strong, daily yoga practice. One of the best decisions she ever made was to sign up for Yoga Teacher Training so she could work within her passion, deepen her own understanding of yoga, and share it with others. Diagnosed at a young age with Ulcerative Colitis, Sarah Beth has since found yoga, meditation and diet to be her natural approach to living a healthy and happy life.
Sarah Beth completed her certification to teach through CorePower Yoga in the fall of 2010 and has since quit her job as a professional model, ran a pop-up donation-based community yoga class, started teaching on YouTube to expand her reach, and picked up some experience as a chiropractic assistant. Sarah Beth has been teaching yoga for nearly 4 years, and loves the challenge of teaching to a class, workshop or on camera! Her current life consists of wedding planning, working out, eating clean, and a whole lot of practicing, teaching and filming yoga. She currently teaches locally in the Denver area and internet-wide on YouTube through her channel SarahBethShow. Her style is strongly influenced by daily practice, functional movement and flow. To stay up to date with her latest routines follow her on YouTube / Tumblr / Instagram / Facebook.
Sarah Beth and I first connected online and then discovered that we’re practically neighbors so met up for coffee to get to know one another. How cool is that? I have a feeling we’ll be having lots of coffee/Pilates/yoga/walking dates in the near future. 🙂
She went above an beyond for the Pilates Summer Series and created a wonderfully rejuvenating 20 minute Yoga For Flexibility routine.
Remember, to stay on track with the challenge you’re only *required* to do 5-10 minutes per day, so don’t worry if you’re tight on time. Just do what you can. But if you’re able to set aside 20 minutes today, you won’t regret it.
This routine will do your body good after all the hard work you’ve put in.
Today’s Check-In: Let’s celebrate the end of the week! Show me one thing that’s making your Friday a Happy Friday. Use the hashtag #PilatesSummerSeries and don’t forget there’s still time to enter the $150.00 Athleta gift card giveaway!
