spring fling: ballet beautiful

We're so excited to see Spring appear down under. This past weekend, the sun was shining, the sky was blue and it felt, well, different! People drinking wine outside restaurants in the early evening, a lighter mood, fresh green leaves on trees that last week were wintery. We feel alive again, and inspired! That's why we'll be running a special Spring inspired series of posts over the coming  months. First up, a little impetus to get in shape for bikini season - beautifully.

Mary Helen Bowers, once a dancer for the New York Ballet, shot to fame when she trained Natalie Portman for her role in the film Black Swan. Now, she's re-claimed ballet from young girls to make it a viable alternative to say, yoga. Plus, you get to don all sorts of sweet ballet inspired exercise wear - better yet, it works - we've gone from winter slump to sculpted things in a matter of months.

You can take classes with Mary Helen online, or purchase her DVD here. We're huge fans of her gorgeous Pinterest too - speaking of which, are you following Lindi Kingi along here?
