Healthy body equals a healthy mind.....Part of my recovery is keeping a strict fitness regime. Be it boxing, cardio training, yoga, or circuit training. Releasing those good endorphins replaces the toxic highs I used to chase for a natural release of serotonin and sense of achievement.
I love boxing for channelling anger and pent up frustrations. Nothing better than putting on some war music and getting in the zone and dripping with sweat.
For balance and stretching, I love yoga. My favourite type of yoga is Yin Yoga as it is long held stretches and provides me with the Yin I need to my yang training. Also I like to try quite my mind. I think practising yoga in a hot environment helps your muscles so I absolutely LOVE hot pod yoga!
I also started pole dancing at Uber Edge Jersey. Nikki who runs the classes is a bad ass bitch, she was super empowering. I went to her a bit broken after a break up and she held a safe space for me and gave me loads of confidence. It was a running joke between me and my friends how I have no rhythm but pole dancing was different. It gets harder as the holds develop but its an amazing work out whist learning a new skill.
