BollySoul Dance! Moving your body can be in any form and that is the best thing about finding your active and being an everyday adventurer.
I love Saniya zest for all things dance and how teaching has allowed her to grow, learn new things, and step outside her comfort zone. In Saniya's words "dance is about making people smile and bringing them together in movement."
This is a motivating read about putting yourself out there, asking for help and how moving your body and having the courage to follow your dreams can lead to finding your happy place.

Angella has made an amazing transformation. Her story highlights the importance of moving your body and ensuring you find time for yourself every day.Not only for herself but to be to ensure she is a great role model for her kids.
August 2016 she decided it was time to make a change and now she loves inspiring others to get moving as well. If you are looking for a bit of inspiration to start your active journey please read Angella's story and motivation.
Finding motivation wasn't easy for Alyssa, but she kept persisting until she found what was right for her. Everyone's active is different and it is all about finding your bliss and what is the right fit for you.
I love Alyssa's story and motivation and how she has grown to love moving her body. Being an everyday adventurer starts with leaving your comfort zone and #FindingYourActive.

I am super excited to introduce you to Janine and her Everyday Adventure of kite surfing and hiking. Kite surfing has always been something I have wanted to try and I love scrolling through Janine insta account @schninoe for the inspiration to step outside my comfort zone to give it a go.
Janine shares her challenge of getting out on her kiteboard by herself at a young age and how it was well worth it in the end.
This is one of my newly discovered everyday adventurers. 𝐒𝐨 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐦𝐚𝐲𝐛𝐞 𝐚𝐬𝐤𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐢𝐬 𝐫𝐨𝐠𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 and that is a very good question. It is 𝘬𝘪𝘯𝘥 𝘰𝘧 𝘭𝘪𝘬𝘦 𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘦𝘳𝘪ng you have to search for markers (otherwise known as controls) however, unlike orienteering you can find them in any order. The aim of the game is to race against the clock in teams to find the most controls and gain the highest points. Teams travel on foot, armed only with the course map and a trusty compass.
Full transparency, this week's Everyday Adventurer is my mother in law and I am not 100% sure she has highlighted enough about the amazing adventures and achievements she has been on with her trusty bike.
Humm where to start.... she has cycled from Cairo to Cape Town, from Istanbul to Beijing and traversed South America with each of these cycling adventures being well over 10,000 km. So if you are looking for inspiration to go out and follow your ACTIVE dream look no further than Ronda.
Riding to work and using her bike as her main mode of transport, not just a form of exercise, is something Taren has grown to love. Along the way, Taren has also enjoyed the benefits this simple little change to her routine has provided - fun, fitness, happiness (no more getting caught in traffic congestion), money savings, convenience and not to mention getting to enjoy the fresh air.
I LOVE as you go through different stages in your life you are drawn to different types of ACTIVE journeys and adventures. Sometimes you need to step back a little and other times you have the opportunity to go full steam ahead.
Full disclosure this week in #ifoundfridays I have my mum talking about her current ACTIVE. She has definitely been a great role model for me as I have always known her to be doing something. I have seen her go from running to netball to golf to hiking to gym workouts to Pilates.
Each stage of her life different ACTIVE's has bought her different joys and achievements and currently, that is Pilates for her.
Become inspired to ride to work. Meredith's story may be your inspiration to jump on your bike. Cycling to work is a great way to start and end the day. So here's to jumping on your bike and giving it ago....
I Found Fridays roll around so fast... it is my favorite part of the week. I love sharing stories of how other amazing women have #foundtheiractive
This week we have the beautiful @tanja_als who I spent many hours with on the tails in North Vancouver. We also spent many hours enjoying tea and banana bread post runs as well. Our fav being the End of the Line General Store.
