We created this course for you.
What landed you here?
Perhaps a dedication to your body, a feeling that movement can feel great again. A sense that there is more to movement as a birthright than just checking a box a few times a week. A deep knowing that your well-being and your future depend on staying active and choosing a caring way to do so.
We all want to get fit and healthy, but how? In today's sedentary and busy world there are as many different exercise programs as there are chairs.
Some people swear by running, taking up a couch to 5k program. Others hit the gym a few times per week. Maybe you love skiing, swimming, yoga, dancing.
Maybe, just maybe, like many of our students, you have recently felt the nagging aches and pains or lack of energy and focus that keep you from the very activities you love.
What happened? Is your body is just aging?
You want to get back into an active lifestyle, but it always feels like something's wrong, like it shouldn't have to be such a struggle.
It's not you, it's your exercise
The truth is that there is nothing fundamentally wrong with you.
Your body is amazing at responding to stimulus. It is an expert at adapting to input. It has been adapting, sometimes for a very long time, to sitting, driving, stress, posture, the demands of exercise, and insufficient rest.
And now, that feeling that something is wrong is your body asking for change.
Those aches and pains, the tiredness and lack of motivation? Those are your body's way to get attention.
Instinctively, your body knows it needs change. Thirst and hunger are its ways of asking for nutrition and hydration, but it finds a way to ask for movements that nourish, as well. You just have to listen.
Shaping the clay
Think of your body as a piece of clay on a potter's wheel.
The wheel is life itself, with time moving forward. The hands are the applied forces holding the clay during every movement you do (or don't do) throughout the day. When you look at the result at the end, you are looking at a shape that is the sum of your total movements.
Your shape may have shoulders that round forward, or hips that don't bend into an effortless squat, a tight achy back, or arms that don't feel as toned as they used to.
But I have great new for you. The hands holding the clay can easily change positions. With even a small movement, the clay begins to change shape. With guidance, each little change creates a powerful effect, not only changing that spot, but influencing the body as a whole.
Soon, with nothing but small changes, new habits, and different movements, you've changed your posture, improved your shape, reduced your aches and pains, and restored the energy you haven't felt in years!
I am inviting you to consider how it would feel to have:
- Improved posture
- Fewer aches and pains
- More energy
- Better mood and focus
- More freedom to do outdoor activities and exercise
