The Days of Our Lives: Emma Seibold, Barre Body

In The Days of Our Lives we meet some fascinating and creative folk and take a look at what their typical day holds. Far from being about the mundane, it is a celebration of what it takes to juggle the day-to-day with big ideas, a successful business and a full home life. It’s about keeping all the balls in the air – what is important and what isn’t. It’s about (extra)ordinary moments that fill our every day.

This week we meet Emma Seibold, the pocket rocket owner and founder of Barre Body – fitness classes that combine yoga and ballet barre conditioning to tone your whole body, while developing balance strength and flexibility.

From starting her day with a smoothie and meditation to running her two Melbourne-based studios and playing with her little cute-as-a-button-son, this is a day in Emma’s life…

Wake up time (I wish this wasn’t true, but it is!). I lay in bed for half and hour reading my emails and checking Facebook. I then got up and do a short meditation and yoga practice in my living room.

Xavier wakes up. We cuddle and have a little play, and then he has breakfast.

I take Xavier to daycare.
