Our lovely Tenders work hard at...well, working YOU hard. You see them in studio, pulse your butt off, leave and never really get the chance to know the lovely being who's helping you tone that tush.
Well - we'd like to introduce you to our Tender Team in more detail for you to get to know a bit more about the people behind the barre. So, without further ado let's meet Tahra; Tahra is one of our newer Tenders all the way up at the sunny Gold Coast Studio - Mermaid Waters...
I spent most of my teen life and early twenties portraying to be happy, but the truth was I was far from it. Feeling empty, unhappy and in denial.
There came a time where I no longer could bare to live a life where I wasn't fully happy and confident. I had to make a choice, I could remain a victim to my own worst enemy - myself, or I could take action and face my inner demons.
So I turned to running, healthy eating and personal development. This was the chapter of my life where I also discovered Pilates and Barre. Soon enough I’d realised I'd fallen in love with what I was doing and wanted to share it with everyone and anyone. I had also found a new love and appreciation for myself. This brought me to the realisation that this is something I am very passionate about and I wanted to empower other women going through their own struggles. I am the type of person that likes to see the best in people.
I burst into tears. I honestly can say we were made for each other. Working for a company with so much genuine integrity is hard to come across these days, but somehow my stars aligned at the right time and the rest is history.
What is your background?
I started out in the health and fitness industry as a Personal Trainer and then moved on to become a Pilates Instructor, it was becoming clearly obvious to me that Barre was the next thing for me. Creating long lean muscle tone was so much more appealing to me than lifting big heavy weights in a smelly gym.
What are you enjoying most about teaching at Aleenta BARRE?
That's a good question but one that's hard to answer. Everything lol, definitely the community of women and seeing them get stronger and watching the confidence grow.
What do you do in your spare time?
In my spare time I lay low, I'm constantly on the move so when I have time off, it is generally spent with a book or watching youtube videos for personal growth. The beach and bed are my happy places.
Living with this mindset has made life so much easier and more enjoyable for me. We are creatures of habit and control and the more we can let go of this, the more we can just be and enjoy this crazy gift of life.
I think as women in today's society we are conditioned to compare ourselves to the women next to us, which is crazy because we are all created with different gifts, different bodies, different minds and that's what makes each of us so valuable to the world. Admire - but don't compare. Let go of your story and just be you, dance to the beat of your own drum and the rhythm of life becomes so much sweeter.
