GIFT X BOLO
GIFT aka Girls in Fitness Training is a program dedicated to show girls how to master fitness and health so that it is a natural and easy part of life and to grow confidently in the direction of their dreams.
BOLO aka Body Love believes you should move your body because you love it and not because you want to punish it. All our offerings and instructors reflect this principle — our classes are fun, challenging and inclusive and our trainers are non-judgmental, educated and serious good vibes.
By Spring I was manifesting how I could reach more youth with mindfulness and meditation. And in the spirit of manifestation within a week Caleigh a dear friend and owner of BOLO reached out to ask if I would participate in a program for teen girls GIFT that she had hosted to bring empowerment through boxing. I had been a spiritual advisor to Caleigh in the past through our beauty sessions and she had experienced the power in my quidance and believes in the importance of my work.
It took sometime to finesse what would resonate with this age group while keeping it fun and aligned with the BOLO spirit. But as the creative energy streamed through we were able to create a powerful cohesion between boxing and meditation/reflection. We used both elements for the girls to connect to what they wanted to let go of in their lives and what they wanted to bring into their lives in both stillness and power. Crystals brought an element staying in the vibration you choose even the adults participated.
I loved being able to reach youth in this capacity and alongside other female wellness influencers. The day ended with much need guidance by other strong female leads speaking on the topic of social media and their personal teen experiences to create a conversation around mental health and wellness.
