Wednesday quote of the week:
Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.

I'm sad that classes will be on hold until after harvest. Look forward to seeing everyone in November in the studio! Keep moving!

Good morning! Its going to be a beautiful day. I hope everyone had an opportunity to witness the eclipse yesterday. Our son has informed us, that there will be another one in 2024, which will be even better than yesterdays.
I'm posting today because I would like to talk about good posture while driving, but truly we need healthy posture habits anytime. The average person sits in their car 17,600 minutes a year...add in sitting on a plane, train, bus, or at home.
When driving your hands should be at 9 and 3 o'clock at all times, left foot flat on the floor and aligned with your hips, Seats straight up. Please do not recline your seat and drive with one arm.... your over extending the shoulder, your spine is not aligned properly, which will cause issues later on if continued. There is another benefit to being posture perfect, your body is in good proprioception mode. If heaven forbid you needed to react quickly, your body posture will allow you to react properly.
Have a Great Day! Safe driving!

I just want to say...ladies awesome class last night! I'm extremely proud of how all of you are advancing towards your goals!
Keep up the good work!
It was a hot day today! I love the heat, but could do without the humidity. I'm lucky I have curly hair! 😊.
So, as promised I'm going to start posting about the breath, posture and the benefits to meditation. Let's start with a little facts on the breath. When we are born we naturally belly breath, but as we age we slowly change and begin to chest breath. I remember checking on our children when they were baby's sleeping in their crib, leaning over to see if there chest was rising and falling and their little bellies would rise as well. Belly breathing is important to learn, because the lower part of our lungs is the richest in oxygen. The breath brings oxygen to your organs, so it's basically bringing good stuff to the places in your body that needs it. Abdominal breathing will also help with anxiety, and stress. I want you to lay flat on your back with one hand on your chest, the other on your belly. Take a deep breath through your noise using your diaphragm and feel your belly rise, your chest will rise a little. Exhale through your mouth slowly, releasing any tension that is in your body. Repeat again with three deep breaths and then exhale slowly. Continue with normal inhale and exhale..clearing your mind.
That's it for tonight, please contact me with any questions, or concerns.

Good morning! It has been awhile since I posted, but that is about to change. I'm sure many of you are familiar with meditation, I have been practicing meditation and relaxation on myself and have incorporated it into my training programs. Meditation and breathing techniques have been studied and confirmed that they help in our daily lives to reduce stress and anxiety. For the remainder of the summer, I will be posting meditation practices and tips to help better calm our body and minds.

I would like to post a few facts on how walking can benefit you. Of course exercise in general is important, but as we age we loose muscle mass and bone density. Walking.... has minimal strain on our joints, and will help with many number of physiological/psychological challenges.
I'm listing just a few that I believe to be most important:
. rheumatoid arthritis
. coronary heart disease/stroke
Let's get outside and enjoy the sunshine!
Have a goal and strive to reach it! You Got This!
