With budding trees, blue skies and warm weather just around the corner, we asked our Fitness & Wellness Director, Danielle Fryer, for her favorite health tips for spring. Below are the top three trends Danielle is living and loving right now.
- Fresh Smoothies | Because there is nothing easier than throwing a bunch of nutrient-rich ingredients into a high-powered blender in order to nourish and flourish. Include no more than three main ingredients in order to keep things yummy. Water and ice are always a good base. Add one or two fresh fruit choices and one giant serving of greens, my favorites are spinach and kale. For extra energy, add chia seeds and a high-quality protein powder. Smoothies make for a simple, delicious and nutritious on-the-go meal replacement.
- Outdoor Yoga | Whether you are participating in one of Mii amo’s signature classes or practicing at home with pets by your side, spring is the perfect season for rolling out your yoga mat in an outdoor space. There is huge value in using your own weight to tone and strengthen your entire body and fresh spring air is the perfect complement to a great workout. For those practicing from afar, take advantage of one of the many yoga instruction sources online and nurture your body and soul as you relish in the season’s beautiful weather.
- Slacklining | It has never been acceptable to be a slacker, until now! In my opinion, slacklining was the freshest, most innovative fitness concept presented at the recent IDEA World Fitness Conference I attended. Slacklining is a fun, innovative and functional way to train your whole body. Slacklining makes you work your deepest, intrinsic core muscles with a huge childlike grin on your face! It also promotes and encourages breath work, balance and can even improve mental and emotional strength. Mii amo and Enchantment Resort guests are welcome to try out our 2-foot slack rack, perfect for beginners. We’re ready to play outside with you!
