Do you supinate or pronate?

Uncategorized May 06, 2019

1. Identify what you want to change and how you will get there. Create a plan! Know yourself. I am not a evening person, so when I schedule myself to do hard tasks in the evenings, I am setting myself up for failure. 

2. Add one thing at a time. Go slow!! For many of us, it takes time to close the gap between the present and the future self. When I first started doing breath work, I set goal of breathing 45 minutes a day, and couldn't keep up with...

When you engage your inner thighs, lower butt cheeks and bring your navel toward your spine and lifting, your core is engaged.  I think actually activating these muscles whenever you remember during the day will result in a strong core without having to attend lots of classes.
