Welcome to The Vertue Method! Let Shona guide you on her holistic methods to achieve a lean body, strong mind and a booty that resembles a peach emoji. This 28-day reset plan is grounded by three key pillars: LIFT, LENGTHEN, NOURISH. By practising Shona's unique workouts focused on weight lifting, resistance training and primal movements, you'll lose fat, become stronger and define your shape with each session. You'll learn how to lengthen and stretch your body, improve your posture, increase flexibility and sculpt a beautiful, athletic physique to be proud of. Through meditation and breath awareness techniques, you will discover how to nourish your body and mind, ease anxiety and improve sleep. The book also includes a chapter on the importance of the food we consume and the nutrients we require for specific goals, body types and activity levels, with a complete 28-day food plan and recipes to nourish and support you through your journey. This personalised health and wellness plan will help you regain balance, and kiss goodbye to restrictive diets through a sustainable approach to strength and skill-based goals. After 28-days, this lifestyle will become second nature - enhancing your mind, body and soul for the long-term. Shona believes that health and happiness go hand in hand; The Vertue Method can empower you to love your body from the inside out, be motivated by what it can achieve and be rewarded not only by a better physical appearance, but by a lighter, happier quality of life.
Shona Vertue, Personal Trainer and Yoga Teacher, embodies an irresistible fusion - the ancient tranquillity of the Pacific Islands with a sun-kissed, Australian life of healthy, vigorous activity. As a child she trained in Sydney as a classical dancer and elite gymnast. On this foundation she built Strength and Conditioning training with a series of world-renowned coaches and in-depth Yoga and Meditation practice with acclaimed international teachers. Today, rather than focus on one area of fitness, Shona fuses these approaches to create new techniques which truly complement each other - and her followers see results which go way beyond expectation. In 2014 Shona moved from Australia to England, where she has helped the overstressed of London keep fit, unwind and spiritually evolve ever since. In 2015 Shona created a pre-flight yoga routine for London Gatwick Airport - still shown on screens across Gatwick's South Terminal. In 2016 Shona brought her unique variety of expertise fully together when she started to teach the Vertue Method. Shona's fusion of yoga, weighted resistance training and meditation promises to uplift your soul and your butt. These new workout classes booked out immediately, weeks in advance. To meet this rush of demand, Shona filmed a series of videos for people to practice at home and within three weeks of going live, the videos had sold in 43 countries. Shona is now an ambassador for New Balance and teaches the Vertue Method in their flagship store in London.
