She keeps her lean body practicing boxing twice a week. Julia says: “Boxing is a way to exercise my reflexes, but I also need a clear mind when I’m practicing it, so I am adept of yoga. In a way, both activities are like meditation to me but in different ways. Boxing works many parts of your body and it also helps release tension, and yoga makes you feel more relaxed through being more aware of your breathing and your body. Both combined make me have a fit body and be in harmony with who I am”, said Julia Melim.
