January Newsletter

It’s New Years Resolutions time, and while I typically don’t make formal resolutions, each January I feel inspired to refresh my movement practice and find more ways to incorporate movement into my life.

I’m not the only one. This article in Quartzy is a great place to start.

The great thing about movement is that even small doses in short duration have huge benefits. This winter CU Movement will have lots of options for helping you find ways to meet your movement resolutions.

 

For the first time I’m offering weekend workshops! This is a great opportunity to really focus on one area of your movement patterns, and at only $25 they’re a great way to dip your toes into new movement.

Fix Your Feet!

In this two-hour workshop we’ll uncover the causes of your foot pain and work through the exercises you need to feel better today.

Find Your Balance

Using careful progressions we’ll work the most important muscles for maintaining balance, play with these new skills, and learn ways to incorporate more balance activities into your daily life.

Getting back to the foundations

My group classes are continuing, but shifting focus in the New Year. Wednesday evening’s Integrated Core will be emphasizing the pelvic floor. Cold and flu season can put extra stress on our lowest support system, but learning good movement patterns can help you avoid the dreaded sneeze pee!

My Thursday class has moved to 4:30pm, and we’ll be working on those movement resolutions. Resolve to Move More will teach the foundational exercises that help you meet your fitness and health goals in a sustainable way.

Each class is $15, or you can get a package of 4 for $50. To register click the link above.

 

What is all this, anyways?

Someone on my Facebook Group reminded me that this alignment work is radically different from most other forms of exercise. As a Nutritious Movement Certified teacher, I approach wellness from the perspective of overall daily movement, not just what you do in your workout. The goals are different, as are the methods.

This January I’m putting together a few things to really show you want alignment work entails. Piggybacking on Katy Bowman’s popular movement advents, I’ll be posting daily exercises you can do at home with minimal equipment with the goal of jumpstarting your whole-body alignment. If you’re not in my facebook group, you should definitely join today.

As I’m a terrible photographer, I promise you there will be awkwardness 🙂

I also have a blog, of sorts on my website. Here you’ll read about some of the alignment basics, interesting movement news, and I’ll have a place to answer in long form the interesting questions people ask me.

 

 

More to Come!

It’s early in the season, and my winter offerings are not solidified yet. This means I’m open to suggestions. I have a lot of ideas, but I’d love to hear what you’re interested in learning more about.

I’m considering offering a Runner’s Rehab class starting in February, as well as a workshop on Body Mechanics for the Garden or Farm. Once the weather warms up I want to take these classes outdoors and would love to host barefoot walks and more.

Got any ideas? I’d love to hear them.
