Movement Matters

Two things happened today that involved the subject of movement for me. The first one was that I was having a conversation about how moving our bodies every day is so important, especially with each passing year. The conversation covered how movement matters because it impacts the overall health of our body, mind, and spirit. The second one was that I signed up to a gym again. It’s been two years and two months since I‘ve worked out in a gym. Since covid my workouts have been in my house. I’d use weights, I‘d dance, bike, and swim, and from time to time look online and watch free classes and follow along.

Now, I’m venturing back to a gym that is brand new. I’m looking forward to challenging myself with different moves and exercises. For twenty-four months I managed to keep myself disciplined and motivated enough to workout 4 - 5 times a week. But there is something about being in a gym, surrounded by others who are also working out, plus having a wide selection of equipment to use, that really makes working out interesting and more stimulating.

Let’s take a closer look at why movement matters and how you can incorporate it into your life.

Importance of Daily Movement

Movement seems like a simple enough concept, yet like I mentioned earlier, it impacts many areas of our lives such as our physical, mental, and spiritual health. Without movement, our bodies deteriorate. Have you ever witnessed your aging parent who never moves their body? What happens? They have less and less energy and slowly deteriorate.

At every age during our lives, our bodies are capable of amazing movement, and we can keep not only our bodies but also our emotional, mental, and spiritual health in good condition simply by incorporating movement into our daily lives. So let’s help our bodies out by moving them regularly.

Yoga Benefits For Every Age

For me, yoga changed my life. I started practicing yoga when I was ten years old because at that time I had spasms due to scoliosis. Nearly everyday since then I’ve practiced yoga and the scoliosis has corrected itself and the spasms never returned.

Over my lifetime, it’s been a privilege to have studied under the world’s best living yoga teachers and I've traveled far and wide to have attended countless yoga workshops and retreats.

My videos are not ‘classes’ but they are tutorials that cover one pose at a time and give deep guidance as to what each pose can offer the student and directions on how to do the pose correctly. I even share some insider secrets and tips for each pose so everyone can hopefully learn a little something new, whether you are a neophyte at yoga or a maven.

Yoga is one of the most holistic forms of exercise and is a sumptuous way to get your body moving, no matter your age. The beauty of having a regular yoga practice is that it will transform your body,
