Ever experienced fitness fatigue? Your usual exercise of choice has lost its pizzazz (or never had any in the first place). You’re feeling flat, physically bleh (bloated, puffy, weak) and you’re tired of trainers banging on about reps, intervals, calories and measurements?
Ahuh, I can practically feel you nodding through the screen. The secret to turning a fitness fling into a forever-love is this. Replace “routine” with “self renewing rituals”. What’s the difference between a routine and a ritual? As Gretchen Rubin says:
“A ‘routine’ is a string of habits, and a ‘ritual‘ is a habit charged with transcendent meaning.”
Boom! This my friends, is the secret sauce! It’s why (WSW) Wabi-Sabi Well workouts gives you “an afterglow like no other” (thanks Camilla Read). Well, I might be biased but don’t take my word for it. You can read what others have to say here.
“What I love about my Wabi-Sabi Well sessions is that we blend the best of all that with the stuff that feeds the spirit. It feels amazing.” Rachel MacDonaldNow for those playing from home, I’ve cherry picked some of the most profound workout rituals and meditations and spun them into these two golden audio guides. Conveniently designed to book-end your workout, they’ll turn a dull fitness routine into a lush transcendent ritual. Think of it as a fun, easy-to-follow template to elevate your exercise experience and steward you toward an intuitive movement practice you call your own.
“I love that I’m invited to create a space for my body’s intuition to guide me. A moment to really work out why I’m showing up to the mat, to movement, to my body. To pause and be grateful. It changes everything, it means a workout session ripples out into my life and becomes momentum for all sorts of wonderful things off the mat.” Sally Cutler
Here’s how it goes:
AUDIO ONE: START YOUR WORKOUT THE WSW WAY (WITH INTENTION)
First experience the utterly day-changing power of intention setting as you’re guided through a series of soul prompts and intuitive training practices.
NEXT STEP: CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE
Next soundtrack your session and pick up the pace with your own self-guided sweat sesh. Yep, choose your own adventure style based on your favourite fitness flavours and how you feel that day.
AUDIO TWO: WSW STYLE SAVASSANA
Now that your workout is complete, seal the sessions with a carefully curated sequence of soul prompts, positive nueroplastisity practices and mindfulness techniques. A savasana full of self-renewing rituals that will have you refreshed, re-energised and wholly re-newed.
Specifically, in the WSW Transcendental Training Template | Workout Enhancement Bundle you will:
- Be guided through a powerful intention setting process. Your intention becomes the rudder of the ship, guiding the focus of your workout, informing your movements, thoughts, activities and expressions and charging your workout with transcendent meaning.
- Return to your heart and align with what really matters
- Discover the power of purpose and soul-full direction
- Distill your desires and aspirations into a mantra that will keep you emotionally aligned for the day
- Perform a simple (but incredibly powerful) gratitude ritual. Part of our arsenal in positive neuroplasticity – it’s all about adapting and changing your brain – fading out the negativity bias in favour of thoughts that improve your overall sense of wellbeing.
- Clear your mind and soak up the post-workout glow with a guided meditation (savasana)
- Revolutionise your approach to fitness: replacing self flagellation with self celebration, embracing body-mind and spirit as an integrated whole and learning the language of the body so you can listen and respond in kind
- Develop physiological introspective sensitivities and increase somatic awareness with this new, intuitive approach to fitness
- Fall in love of exercise and develop a dynamic meditation practice you are proud to call your own
