Ukrainian model Dasha Alexandria talks about fitness and giving back to Ukraine

makes nothing Dasha AlexandriaHeart races like fitness. Her focus on fitness improves her connection between mind and body. “Working out involves a lot of muscle-mind connection and it really makes me feel comfortable with my body. I’m really aware of every part of the body now, especially after practicing yoga and pilates for so long,” she says. If you want to start a workout routine, consistency is key. “Start slow. It’s all about balance…you can’t overwork your body. Be consistent. It’s hard to feel motivated, especially in the beginning. But the more you work out, the more you make it a part of your lifestyle. For me , working now feels like therapy. I feel so much better after I do it. It feels like a meditation space for me. Recently, she decided to shift her focus to fashion modeling and she works with different brands. “It’s for me. A new goal and experience. It looks and feels very creative. I love working with anything from swimming, fashion, beauty, yoga.”

Mental health will always be one of Dasha’s main passions. “I think it pushed me to be the best version of myself. If we can learn how to bring out the best in ourselves and how to transform negative thoughts into positive behavior, we will live more fulfilling lives.” The Ukrainian model is also focused on crisis relief in her home country. “I actively donate to charities and do my best wherever I can. Helping family members. For me the war is always in my mind to some degree, since I have such a connection. But I think by mentioning it here and there or posting something, you can remind people of its importance. I would say what you Anything you can helps. Prayers, donations, things like that. Some of my favorite charities are the Serious Shelter for Animals in Ukraine and the Ohmad Children’s Hospital.” Every little bit makes a difference.
