Have you heard of Motor Neurone Disease or MND? ALS? Lou Gehrig's Disease? How about the Ice Bucket Challenge?
I didn't know much about the disease until my uncle was diagnosed back in 2015...
MND is a progressive, terminal neurological disease. It can strike anyone, and while people living with MND won't see their mind or senses affected, they will progressively lose the use of their limbs, as well as their ability to speak, swallow and breathe.
More than 2,000 people have MND across Australia, and every day in this country, two people die from MND.
There is currently no cure and no effective treatment for MND.
Why am I writing about this? Because I want to raise awareness and some much needed funds for this disease through a month-long fundraiser!
People with MND lose their ability to move, so I am offering people in the Hunter Valley the chance to move while donating to a good cause.
Every Saturday in May, I will donate all drop-in fees from my Barre and Pilates classes to MND NSW. The money will be directed where it is most needed: research, equipment and/or support for those living with MND.
I will also be discounting my drop-in fee to encourage even more people to get moving! So for $10, you get a quality full-body workout and feel even better knowing that you've contributed to much-needed research.
ABOUT MY CLASSES
TOTAL BARRE: A 55 minute full-body workout consisting of pilates, dance, strength training and cardio. The workout is based at the ballet barre, but you don't need to be a ballerina to do the class and feel the benefits! You will feel the burn in this class!
Join me at the Barre at 8am on Saturdays.
PILATES: A 55 minute full-body workout on the mat focused on strengthening our deep core muscles. Don't be fooled: although these exercises are lower-impact, they can still be intense and you will leave feeling stretched and strengthened, toned and lengthened!
Join me on the Mat at 9am on Saturdays.
Classes are taught at BLU's School of Dance, Pitt Street, Singleton.
This Sunday (May 5th), you can also enjoy the benefits of a Barre workout followed by a VIP wine tasting at my Wine Barre event at Drayton's Family Wines!
Tickets cost $35 and you get a 55 minute class in our custom-built barre studio in the Drayton's underground cellar followed by a wine & cheese tasting led by Drayton's wine maker.
We also have a fabulous door prize on offer: a gift voucher from Innate Style for a two hour consultation valued at $280!!! All in time for Mother's Day!
