This morning we’re feeling motivated and ready to kick start Sunday with Dajana Jackson Prosnanova, Managing Director and Coach at Hypoxi Knightsbridge. We find out everything you need to know about Hypoxi the sliming treatment renowned for helping tighten and tone those stubborn problem areas. She gives us her expert tips and beauty buys for reducing cellulite at home, as well as her favourite encouraging quotes, join us as we get inspired…
Favourite place to visit on Sunday?
At home when my husband makes it. Although during summer time we enjoy picnics in Streatham Rookery surrounded by Streatham Common. We had plenty this summer, as the weather was so good… The Rookery is like a hidden gem with beautiful gardens, pond and rock streams.
Bliss out treatment:
This is definitely the Paraffin Wax Bath at UR. There is not that many places left where you can have it done these days. It is extremely soothing and relaxing all the muscles in the body and great for the skin too. I also like to have the La Prairie Caviar Facial with Farida as a special treat, so the face is not left out.
I am definitely a Champagne girl, best served with strawberries!
Saturday Night - Dancing till dawn or takeaway and a movie?
I have always been more into takeaway and a movie, although I like a good house party and a dance, too.
My favorite beauty products
Favourite day of the week and why:
Friday. Fridays are always filled with good energy for me. Maybe because I was born on a Friday…and also after a full-on week I look forward to the weekend, which makes me more productive.
What is Hypoxi and how does it work?
HYPOXI® is a body shaping & slimming method developed in Austria in the late 1990s. It is the first patented training concept to combine advanced vacuum and compression technology with exercise to kick start the body’s fat metabolism in the troubled areas i.e. stomach, hips and legs. It is a fast and sustainable fat burning treatment. Independent studies have shown it to be up to 3 times more effective than regular exercise for targeted fat loss. One can lose a dress size in 4 weeks and guaranteed to lose it from the tricky places. It also reduces the appearance of cellulite.
What’s your favourite thing about your job?
I enjoy working with people, helping them to achieve their goals. Having my own business is allowing me to do both: running the clinic’s operation and also being actively involved in the clients’ programs. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing someone’s dream to come true, especially when they struggled with their shape for years.
If you had one extra hour each day, how would you spend it?
I would spend it outdoors and if possible in a bit of sun or daylight, just meditating or compiling though my thoughts. We spend far too much time in front of computers and screens nowadays.
What words of wisdom do you live by?
I love words of wisdom!!!! I keep reading inspirational quotes every day. One of my favourites that resonates with me the most is by Richard M. Nixon: "Never let your head hang down. Never give up and sit down and grieve. Find another way. And don’t pray when it rains if you don’t pray when the sun shines."
And another one for you: "The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle" – Steve Jobs
What should people eat more of?
Protein i.e. chicken and fish, especially women; we forget to include it in each meal, which makes us deficient and the body loses muscle mass. Nuts & seeds are rich in protein and great to snack on, but remember your protein portion in your main meals.
What advice would you pass on to other women wanting to set up their own business?
Stay determined and positive. Everything is possible with the right approach, hardwork and passion.
What were the last three things you purchased?
Christening present for my little nephew
