Workout and Word of the Day: #16

Hello My Dear Darling Friends!

I needed to mix things up for this workout so I put on my pink tights, green leotard, and ballet slippers and twisted my hair into a bun for some ballet fun.  I hadn’t practiced ballet since my injury, but really enjoyed this ballet barre workout.

I think the music takes me into another world and reminds me to carry myself with strength and grace.

I thought I might only do the warm-up and the mini barre workout, but later in the day I also did a booty workout then ended with my 3rd day of Kundalini Yoga.  

The key is to just get started.  Once you get some momentum you will want to keep going!

Workout of the Day: Ballet + Bootylicious!!!

This is a fun and challenging ballet warm-up.  Remember to listen to your body and modify as necessary.  I cannot lift my legs up that high YET, but I do what I can!

Classic Mini Ballet Barre Workout:

Quick Cardio Booty Blast: Short, sweet, and VERY effective!  Enjoy!!!

Brutal Booty: This is one of my favorite booty workouts and it burns EVERY time!

Butt Lift + Ab Chisel: The BEST of both worlds right here!

Then at the very end of the day, my boyfriend and I took our dog for a nice late-night walk.


Word of the Day:

instantiate- verb

  1. To provide an instance of or concrete evidence in support of (a theory, concept, claim, or the like)

I really enjoyed this ballet and booty workout and I hope that you will too!!!

Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,

❤ Alana Xoxoxo

  1. You are so inspiring in your pointe shoes! Do you dance anymore after your injury? I stopped dancing after beginning my desk job and my body missed dance, especially ballet, so much. I took a barre class at my local gym and I fell in love with it. It filled the void of dance and I wanted more. After the teacher approached me and asked me if I used to be a dance, I told her that I was but then my job got in the way of my passion. She told me I should get certified to teach barre classes and I was so excited that there was a new potential job for me, that I actually would like! My barre teacher told me to get certified with American barre technique so I did. I took the ABT online barre certification and got hired as soon as I passed the course. Long story short, I now teach barre full time and I get to do what I love everyday. One dance to another, I think you’d be a great barre teacher. If you’re interested in getting barre certified, check out ABT: http://www.americanbarretechnique.com

    1. Thanks a bunch! I started taking a core ballet class again this month and I absolutely love it. I am so thankful that my body was able to heal and I have recovered full mobility. I cannot even tell that I was injured. I am so glad that you got back into dancing also! Congratulations on becoming an American Barre Technique instructor. I didn’t know that you could do this online. I will have to check it out. Thanks for telling me about it!

      ❤ Alana
