Spring is well under way and we are so ramped up about Spring cleaning, getting outside for our workouts, longer and brighter days, and warmer weather. This month, we are highlighting two super talented Provita Pros. Not only have they been teaching collectively for over 20+ years but they are multi certified in their fields and industry. Please meet Daniella Erica, Massage Therapist and Yoga Pro LA and Shannon Paula, Fitness and Pilates Pro. Let’s see what juicy info they have for us this April.
MASSAGE THERAPIST & YOGA PRO LA, DANIELLA ERICA

Question #1 We all have days when we just don’t want to work out. How do you motivate yourself to move and work out?
I call up a friend to join me for a long walk, hike, or high intensity workout class. I’m always more motivated when a friend joins me for a workout.
A 21 or 28 day cleanse/detox program with mindfully planned out nutrition, lots of “omitting”, gentle movement, serious physical expansion particularly though Pilates and Gyrotonic type of movements. April is my Birth Month so I often plan my detox programs around this time. Trying something new like aerial yoga, trampoline classes, rock climbing, and focused physical cleaning/clearing of my home: toiletry closet, bedroom closet, kitchen cabinets, jewelry boxes, simply re-organizing and CLEARING. As I create space for new possibilities, I pack bags for Goodwill and wish my belongings into the hands of others who will truly benefit from them.
While there is nothing like a Larabar, I do my best to get those amino acids in my body at this time. I’ll often pack a glass bottle of alkaline water with a smidgen of juice, freshly squeezed lemon and chia seeds, I find that it’s refreshing and does the trick.
