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 types of ACTIVE pursuits has bought her different joys and achievements and currently, that is Pilates for her.

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.

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.
