“During lockdown my body has allowed me to start learning Pilates, walk safely with friends and care for my patients. Let’s change the conversation and be positive about our bodies. Be proud!”
This is my lovely client Nikki who is a trainee nurse and works for the NHS as a HCA in Intensive Care at Brighton hospital. I set her a wee #bodyappreciationchallenge (thx @jesshughespt) and this was her response.
Nikki was my first Pilates client over 12 weeks ago, and has grown so much in strength and confidence since then, that it really is a joy to see♥️💜❤️💛
At a time where our feeds are full of ‘lose your lockdown love handles’ diet and exercise plans, I urge you to think of ways your body has served you throughout this difficult period in all of our lives.
What has your body allowed you to do during lockdown?
