Don’t Resolve to Exercise!

Treadmill Workout
Yes, you read that right. This yoga teacher is begging you! Please, do NOT set a New Year’s Resolution to exercise regularly! Why? Don’t I care about your health and wellness? Don’t I want you to feel better, have more energy and experience less pain?

Of course I do! But exercise alone just isn’t the solution. Our body has both movement and alignment requirements. Not only is exercise incapable of satisfying our movement needs (just like it doesn’t work to eat all of your calories for the week in just three to five meals), it doesn’t teach us to restore healthy alignment (and often makes it worse)!

I have wonderful news for those of you who’ve struggled to make your health a priority in the past. It is much easier than you think to get aligned and moving! I’ve created a completely FREE 30-day email class to show you exactly how.

Barefoot FINAL

Each class email is short and sweet. First we talk about what healthy alignment in that part of the body looks like. Then I give you a single exercise you can do, in the middle of your typical day, in under three minutes! Of course you’ll need to slide off your shoes and sometimes grab a chair or a towel, but these exercises are all designed to be done quickly and easily wherever you find yourself. (Stay-at-Home Yoga Premium members will have access to a class page that contains videos demonstrating each of the exercises. You can start a 14-day FREE trial today and have access to those as well!)

At the end of this boot barefoot camp, you will have a full repertoire of movements that you can do throughout your day. You have nothing to lose and your health and wellness to gain. Go ahead, sign up now. You’ll get your first class email the morning after you sign up!
