Balance of Strength and Grace

By now I'm sure many of you have seen my pictures floating around on either Facebook or Instagram. This most recent photo shoot done by my good friend, Katelyn West of West Photography, was meant to show the balance of strength and grace. 


Balance- we all strive for it in some form. My brand is all about that. Hence the yin yang in my logo, which is also tattooed on my wrist. Also is the significance of the first letter of my name; S symbolizes balance. So as you can see I'm surrounded by balance. Coincidence? I think not! 

Ok back on track, my brand, my business is to find balance in the fitness world. How do you combine personal/strength training, yoga and self defense? It's defined in this photo and my training style. Still working on the self defense part, got something brewing so just wait and see how I incorporate that in! But fitness and yoga wise, as you can see in this picture. The strength it takes to hold yourself up, stay strong and steady in a pose but make it graceful, that's why I have the pointe shoes. On top of it staying balanced in the pose! 

It is possible to show beauty and grace in strength as well as the strength in beauty and grace. It's going to take a couple of tries to find that appropriate balance for you. We are all different and its important to remember that, don't start comparing yourself to others and we are at different stages in our lives. Don't be afraid to try new things, find what works for you and structure your schedule around that!

Love and Light,
