Pilate and SoulCycle
Aasen enjoys group Pilates and SoulCycle classes. "I do Pilates at SLT," she says. "It's so tough! I like SoulCycle, too. I love the hip-hop-themed rides; they're my favorite. I just did one that was about the evolution of Rihanna. It was incredible."
Meditation and Yoga
Aasen says she took advantage of COVID-19 lockdowns to learn to cook. "I have become a much better cook," she says. "Living in NYC I never cooked much, but in the pandemic I started to really enjoy it. I also started doing much more mindfulness (meditation) and yoga."
Aasen lives by a simple motto for health and wellness. "Enough sleep, healthy diet and healthy mind," she says. "People would be surprised to know that I actually love deep cleaning my own house. Cleaning really helps me destress and calm down when I have anxiety."
Aasen avoids meat and sticks to other sources of protein such as chickpeas. "Chickpeas are also an excellent source of non-animal protein," says Patricia Bridget Lane, RDN, LD/N. "They're great for vegetarians and vegans."
Aasen says her career as a model (she was discovered at age 14) helped her get over self-consciousness as a young girl. "It has given me a lot of independence from a young age," she says. "Shown me how to connect socially and on a business level with people from all backgrounds/ages etc. I think it's been such a blessing especially to be able to be young and travel the world and experience so many different cultures and people."
