  • Finding Balance for Myself

    It is my intention to take better care of myself. As a fitness professional who is committed to helping others improve their lives through better health, I do not always do a stellar job of putting my own health at the top of my list of priorities. Almost every single day, I struggle to keep my own health needs in check, because it feels completely overwhelming to consider the list of things I would have to push aside to accomplish my goals of getting a healthy lunch and a workout in. Over the past 4 months, I’ve recommitted myself to exercising 5 days/week (which, I am aware, is a huge, and perhaps unrealistic, goal for many people). I’ve done this by starting and completing ....

    Why Starting Slowly May Be Your Ticket to Lasting Fitness Results

    Many of us fantasize aboutgoing"cold turkey" into a healthy lifestyle. We imagine waking up to do cardio every morning at 6:30am, we see ourselvesg uzzlinggreen juice, detox drinks, and wheatgrass shots, and we envision how we will finally be______________ (fill it in). At the same time, we often have many external pressures that are constantly pulling us in different directions and notleaving much time for self-care. For most people, starting a healthy routine gradually is the only way to ensure that it will stick long-term. If we dive head first into a 7-day cleanse where only cauliflower, lemon juice, and hot sauce are on the menu after being off the wagon for 3+ years, we ....

  • THE SCIENTIFIC BENEFITS OF ESSENTIAL OILS

    THE SCIENTIFIC BENEFITS OF ESSENTIAL OILS

    We start and end each yoga class at Uplift Strength & Spirit with essential oils. A quick dab to the wrist of eucalyptus, sweet orange, or grapefruit before opening meditation and then a luxurious spritz of rose once everyone is situated for savasana. The smell itself is pleasant enough to merit our habitual application of these oils, but their benefits extend much further. These varied scents have the power to increase energy levels and deepen relaxation. Often touted as “new age-y” by skeptics who do not realize the practice goes back thousands of years, essential oils are having a resurgence in use, appreciation and fortunately, published research on their rich physical, ....

  • GOOD DAY SUNSHINE - AN INTRODUCTION TO SUN SALUTATIONS

    GOOD DAY SUNSHINE - AN INTRODUCTION TO SUN SALUTATIONS

    Surya Namaskar translates from Sanskrit to something along the lines of "adoring" or "bowing to" the Sun. Now these sequences of postures meant to invigorate the body and spiritual heart are commonly called Sun Salutations. When practiced quickly, they are very warming and excellently prepare the body for further yoga or physical practices. When practiced slowly, the postures bring a meditative presence to the body and mind. The steps are simple and intentional, beginning and ending with the palms at heart center to signal adoration and appreciation for the sun, the divine light that exists within all of us. Breathing is very important to this practice. As you flow, try to match the ....
