SEROTONIN: Balance & Bravery
a Flash Talk by Nicky Inge
Being a full-time lawyer, Nicky has always tried to strike a balance between her professional career and her interests in fitness & wellness.
What initially was just about aesthetics & personal care turned into a passion to excel and also help other women. Nicky is currently looking to get certified in Health Coaching to reach out to more women to live better.
Coming from a traditional Chinese family, being a lawyer seemed like "the right thing to do". This is a common theme amongst most Asian families - you do what your parents want you to do.
However, life is short. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.
Find the courage to follow YOUR heart and aspirations!
SEROTONIN: I AM Movement
a Movement class by Siobhan Dumigan
YOU are beautiful, the way you move is beautiful. Let's celebrate our diversity in movement.
Feel free in your bodies, own your bodies, love the way you feel moving in your bodies, love your bodies. These are all steps towards self-love.
We want each & every one of you in the class to feel supported and loved. No matter where you are in your journeys, there is a support system for YOU and today it's with The Busy Woman Project.
This class is suitable for all. You will learn how to express yourself through movement and learn there is no wrong way to move or express.
SEROTONIN: Strong not Skinny
a Flash Talk by Daniella Means
What does "Strong" mean?
The human body is an amazing thing, and women especially do not seem to realize that. We produce babies, can run ultra-marathons better than men, have a much higher pain threshold, and we are STRONG.
So USE that strength. It's often our own brains telling us we "can't" be strong(her), or perhaps it's society!
Daniella wants to break this gender stereotype! YOU are so much stronger than you think.
SEROTONIN: Making Brekkie Great Again
a Brekkie, Food & Nutrition Workshop by Jess Cheung
Breakfast bowls (think porridge & smoothie bowls...) that taste and look yummylicious? Yes please!

About The Busy Woman Project:
We connect, inform and support Busy Women living in Asia to live, feel and be better.
In today’s society, women are juggling multiple roles, both professionally and at home - entrepreneur, partner, student, mom, working professional, wife, friend, frequent traveller and so on (I am sure you are a very Busy Woman too!).
With so much on our plates, there are times when things can be alittle overwhelming, times when we strive to find that ‘balance’, times when we wished we had more support or someone to look up to….
We created this initiative for these very reasons - to provide the support & structure to our Busy Women community, as well as to Women-led small businesses / individuals in the Health, Boutique Fitness & Wellness industry in Asia - both existing & aspiring (whether you are a boutique fitness studio owner, personal trainer, influencer / blogger, etc). We want women to live, feel and be better.
We hope to achieve our objective and reach out to more Busy Women through multiple touchpoints including content on Boutique Fitness, Healthy Eats, inspirational Busy Women stories, as well as on-the-ground events.
Since the launch of the initiative in October 2016, The Busy Woman Project community has held SOLD OUT events in Bangkok, Singapore and Shanghai. We also have Community Ambassadors who are based in China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand that help connect and support the community locally.

Life hasn’t always been smooth sailing for Daniella, but training has always been an integral part of her life and has helped her get through difficult situations. Just like how many women can relate to their love-hate relationships with food, it was something she struggled with in her youth. Today, Daniella is grateful for her healthy relationship with food.
Daniella loves that she has the opportunity to combine something she loves, her business background, as well as to reach out to & help people with their own fitness journeys as part of her career. This is definitely something she sees herself doing for a while!
