      We all know that sooner or later we will have to do a “workout” (or feel guilty about not doing one). I will be the first person to agree that yes, movement is just like food or sleep - nonnegotiable. The problem is that fitness culture convinced us that we should “exercise” solely to make parts of our bodies bigger or smaller.

 

That resulted in a loss of what should be foundation of every movement experience: enjoyment.

     It’s time to create and nurture a movement practice that genuinely work for us. One that make your body strong, help your mind reconnect and make you feel radiant afterwards.

   For years I resented “exercise” because I associated it with uninspiring 10 Minute Waist Slimming workouts from YouTube. There was no intention or connection behind any of it - I would rush through doing 20 reps of everything and hope for the best. 

   I started attending yoga classes at a local studio in search of is something different. What really changed my mindset down the line was taking what I learned in class and making it into my own movement at home.

 

Putting on music and taking the time to feel what my body needs. I realised I went my entire life without listening to my body’s intuition. Finally tuning in felt SO good.
