The Power of One

‘With the power of one everything comes.’

No matter how tough things can be or how uphill a struggle seems, with the power of one anything can be achieved.

Step by step

Moment by moment

Day by day

Every one counts,

Every choice you make

Can help you to create

The vision you see,

The way you want to be;

This is the power of one

~ M.L Adams

Never underestimate the power of one. In one moment many moments and many possibilities exist, and within this all changes. Always keep going ♡

3 steps to finding a way that works for you

In a world that offers so much choice in ways of training and keeping fit, how can you truly know what works best for you as an individual.

Follow these 3 steps to finding a way that works for you;

1.) Experiment; try new things even if its one class or one month, you can’t really know without trying for yourself. Once you have tried you can truly say whether it works for you or not.

2.) Trust your inner feeling; do you feel good whilst practising? What does your body, mind and soul tell you, does it really resonate with you and the person you want to be and become.

3.) What are the results; for this you will need to attend for some time to see if you achieve what it is you wish to achieve in the class or exercise. You can also check in with other attendees in the class and see what their results are and if it is what you are looking for.

The above are my top 3 ways in finding a way that works for you and to do so as quickly as possible. Sometimes it can take a little longer, however you will always gain and learn lessons from whatever you do.

Most often, it is trial and error and of course all important is that you have fun in what you are doing, as well as getting the results you wish to achieve.

Enjoy the discovery, enjoy the journey 💛

Doing what you love

When it comes to fitness training as with many things, it is always best to do what you love. Why force yourself to do some form of exercise that you do not ove or even enjoy when there are so many forms of exercise to choose from that you can find and fall in love with. If you haven’t found yours yet, then simply experiment.

Try different ways and methods; get creative and enjoy yourself whilst also getting results. When you really start doing what you love you may then find yourself finding flow; a state of immersion in what you’re doing. This can happen fairly easily in exercise when we get in to rhythmic patterns and become absorbed in the movement.

This is something I’m working on at the moment and it is a continual process of discovery.

Find what works for you and most importantly enjoy.

All the best in health and happiness.

Change with change

Have you ever stopped and noticed how much everything is always changing. That within each moment, are many tiny moments and so many tiny experiences.

Nothing stays the same and no one moment is the same, yet so many of us spend our lives wanting things to stay and remain the same or even moving away from what is.

Yet in each moment there is always change.

What if instead we choose to change with the change, and go with what is, wont we then feel far more happy and at peace.

A great teacher to help us do this is mother nature herself. After spending an hour or two in nature, you will soon find yourself becoming more immersed and flowing with the natural changes that happen in each moment.

This is especially great for those times of stress or worry, as nature brings us back to the here and now, allowing a return to a natural state of inner peace and clarity.

So much happens in each moment that it is purely magical, yet so often we can miss it, caught up in our daily lives, busy with many daily tasks.

Yet you deserve this time; take time out whenever you can and explore the beauty in each moment with the beauty of nature.

Allow nature to teach you to change with change, the moments are so minute that we may just miss them.

‘To Change with Change is the Changeless State’ ~ Bruce Lee

Overcome any obstacle

Life can throw us many obstacles, so it makes sense that there are also many ways around them. There’s no one size fits all.

We are all different and so our goals and the obstacles on the way to achieving them will  be different.

Often amongst these obstacles, can be the one of getting distracted from our original goal. This can happen in effort to fit in with what others are doing or what we’re told to be achieving.

This getting distracted from our original goal can often be one of the toughest and most deceiving, because we can begin to believe that the goal is ours when it is in fact not.

Always track back to your orginal goals when you set out to achieve something and make sure you stay focused on this. Listen to your inner truth at all times, because it’s your journey and you’re the one who has to put the work in.


Once you are certain of your goal and stay focused on it, you will always find a way and it’s not for others to know or understand it, because it’s your journey.

Other obstacles can be much simpler and come down to our own self awareness, recognising fears and doubts, when to listen to them and when not to.

A useful tool for this is self reflection. It really helps to keep a journal throughout so you can stay self aware through the reflection process.


For more information on how to do this please get in touch to book an intial coaching session.

Obstacles are all in fact our guides, as when we really observe and become aware of what it is showing us we will always find a way either around, over, under or through them.

Just make sure you always keep your inner compass as your guide.

Stay at your best,

Miranda 💗

Dancing with Life

Life by its nature is always changing and sometimes unpredictable. Yet so often we may want things to stay the same.

What if instead we decided to dance with the change, and go with whatever comes our way. It can for sure make things easier and less painful.

It may be uncertain and we may not know where it will lead, but what if just for a while we decide to let life take the lead.

It may just lead us to some exciting adventures and discoveries we may not otherwise have.

Sure we may have to let go of some things or even a lot of things but just imagine what else it may bring.

I invite you today, maybe for even just one day;

Let life lead the way,

Dance with life,

Discover your unique way to play

What to do without the gym

How are you finding life in lockdown, Takes a bit of adjusting doesnt it? Hopefully most of you have managed to find a way to workout without the gym, and now the dates for re-opening have been announced we’ve not too much longer to wait. Here are a few tips just in case you are struggling,to keep you going until then.

1.) Workout first thing– Whatever exercise you’re going to do, try to do it first thing. Motivation is highest when we get straight in to it, otherwise other things can distract us and take over the day.

2.) Body weight training – This time can actually be a great opportunity to explore more bodyweight training. This can be as simple as push ups and sit ups and can be adapted to any level. Always warm up and cool-down, and with some simple exercises you can make an easy to follow workout for 20 mins, 3 times a week. This alone can make a lot of difference. For more advice please get in touch.

3.) Get outdoors – This time is also a great opportunity to get back in touch with nature and enjoy all it has to offer. So try to make the most of it while you have the time. Being more in touch with nature has natural calming and mood boosting effects, in addition to those we already get from exercise. This is something we could all do with right now and comes highly recommended.

If at all you are really struggling and need some more support and advice at this time, Then please do get in touch and we will be happy to support. Stay strong and stay healthy.

5 ways to cope in difficult times

Life is full of ups and downs and its natural to encounter difficult times, particularly where there are many changes and circumstances are thrust upon us.

Many people have been finding the current time very difficult to cope with due to all the changes and limitations that have come with the lockdowns.

I wanted to reach out and offer some ways that I reccomend for coping better in difficult times.

1.) Help others. Reaching out to others may feel like the last thing you want to do when you feeling low. However it can often be the best thing, by reaching out to others to help and support, it enables you to get out of your own difficulties for a while and you make someone else feel better too. Its win-win, do your best to stay supportive.

2.) Connecting to Nature. Spending time in nature and connecting deeply to nature, is very therapeutic. It has a calming effect on the body and is proven to reduce stress, anxiety, blood pressure as well as many more health benefits. Aim to spend at least 20-30 minutes to really feel the connection and allow nature to reciprocate with you. If done regularly you will begin to really feel the benefits over time.

3.) Find a way of expressing yourself. Art can be one of the best mediums for self-expression and this can also be very therapeutic, as it allows you to transform your feelings in to something new and uniquely you. This can be in many ways, it may be painting, writing, dance or any other form that works for you. This helps best when you become completely immersed in the activity and allow it to take over for you, so you are no longer thinking; simply being.

4.) Exercise. Do whatever exercise you can and again make it work for you. Let it be something you enjoy and feel good from after. There is always something for everyone. Find what you love and then try your best to do at least 30mins to 1 hour, 3 times a week to begin with. This will help to boost your endorphins (feel-good hormones) and so physiologically really help you to start feeling better.

5.) Daily Gratitude. Gratitude really helps us to become more present and focused on the good things in life. This can be for the little things or the big things and even just writing down 5 things we are grateful for everyday can really help make a difference to our outlook. The following video is a beautiful example of the benefits of gratitude and well worth a watch. Enjoy 🙂
