Need morning motivation? Model and influencer, Dominique Faludi has her morning routine down pat and it is one that we want to adopt (read: no snoozing the alarm six times).

From taking her favourite Power Living class to jumping in the ocean, a steady morning routine sets the tone for Dominique’s busy scheduled days and we are always curious to find out how others start their mornings — especially yogis!

See below how Dominique plans out her morning in order to make the most of the first rays of light in the day.


Power Living: What does a typical morning look like for you?


Dominique Faludi:

7.00 a.m. – I have such a strong body clock, and am always awake by 7 a.m. on a typical day off. The first thing I do in the morning is make myself a big chai tea with soy milk honey. It is my favourite way to start the day.

8.00 – Around 8am, I will slice a banana up and add peanut butter to each slice. This is the perfect snack before I head to my 9.30 a.m. heated vinyasa flow at Power Living Bondi Beach.

9.00 – I am always early to class, I like to take 20 minutes to practice my breathing and just enjoy the peaceful space. This really acts as a mini digital detox too.

11.00 – After class, I am usually starving and will walk around the corner to Cali Press and get an acai bowl or a green smoothie. In summer, I’ll walk down to the ocean after and have a dip. There is no better way to start your day, you feel energised and clear headed.


PL: What is your favourite class at Power Living?


DF: My favourite class is a heated vinyasa level 2. I love the 75 minute classes that involve 60 minutes of flow, and 15 minutes of meditation.


PL: What is your favourite yoga pose?


DF: Savasana! But also warrior two. I feel extremely powerful in this pose and it is super uplifting if I am feeling sluggish.


PL: How long have you been practicing yoga?


DF: I have been practising yoga for 6 years now.


PL: What one thing do you do every day?


DF: Every night before bed, I write down 10 things I am grateful for. This had changed my mindset on life and has really made me a more positive person.


PL: How do you unwind?


DF: To unwind, I love to exfoliate, moisturise and put lavender palm on my temples and wrists. I then light a candle in my room and tuck into bed with a good book. I really recommend “Hippies in the City” – I have read this book about four times, and its just a great reminder on how to live a holistic lifestyle in the busy life we all lead.
