Walking advent calendar with Katy Bowman

walking

                                   Will you walk for a prize?

My teacher, mentor, friend and super inspiration, Katy, is brilliant. If you are my student you probably hear me say Katy is brilliant at least twice each workout. Or you ask me: “What does Katy think?” at least twice each workout. Because, well, she is able to make the ordinary, extraordinary.

Take Christmas and walking – two things that normally have nothing in common, until Katy comes in the picture. Enter the walking advent calendar, where for a month, Katy posts a new walking habit to work on every day!

On day 6, she posted about head position while walking. Check it out over here! Do you HEAD out on a walk, or is your head aligned over your shoulders when you walk?

Tomorrow, December 9, I am partnering with Katy to bring you Advent Calendar inspiration and prizes.

I will be giving away 6 webinars and a Skype session on my Facebook page, after you enter a fun contest and do something about day 9 of the walking advent calendar.

Please head over to the page and like it, so you can take part tomorrow, and don’t forger to check it out early morning!

I am offering gift certificates too! Nothing beats the experience of movement and education all wrapped in one! You know that at MOVEWELL STUDIO my goal is to give you not only the ability to move better in your body, but also to understand it better and to be a wiser steward to it.

Whether your friends and family need to improve posture or breathing, or they are looking to get more balance and strength, or beat nagging chronic pain, you can give them a beautifully wrapped gift certificate to see me. Perfect for your kids coming home for the holidays too!

Your friends and family live too far? I offer video sessions through Skype and all the services excluding NKT® can be used over the Internet!

All gift certificates can be redeemed through spring, so your gift can keep your loved ones warm for months!

If you have a special request, such as a group session or a workshop on a special topic, I will custom make a certificate for you at 30% off the regular price, so I get to contribute to your gift giving too!

Wishing you active, happy and joyful holidays!

This is how we walk

walking group Rancho Santa Margarita

We’ve been talking about starting a walking group for a while now. Since we now live a few minutes from three fantastic walking locations, we decided it’s time to share our Saturday walk with clients and friends.

We started this free group to actively share one of our core beliefs – that walking is a God given right and we should all walk. Barring health obstacles, everyone who can put one foot in front of the other should be getting a significant amount of walking.

And not just any walking. Walking with friends, walking in a nature, walking with good form, all help maintain the many complex aspects of what comprises our vibrant health.

The next date for our walks is already set and it’s in my newsletter. If you don’t get that regularly, you can click the big blue envelope on the top right and subscribe.

In the meantime, enjoy your walks and see you on November 22, at 9 a.m. at the top of O’Neill Park at Montana and Danta, in RSM, CA.

Peace and move well 🙂

The Healthy Foot Practitioner

photo-14

That would be me. Back in spring I took the Healthy Foot Practitioner course, developed by the lovely biomechanist Katy Bowman and podiatrist Theresa Parahen. The course is fantastic and helps develop a wonderful base of movement and knowledge for anyone searching to improve balance, overall health and performance. For those people ailed with foot pain the course offers simple and effective solutions. For me, as a Restorative Exercise™ specialist, the certification added a new level of skill and a better ability to explain the importance of foot training to my clients. I am not one to put up certificates on the wall of my studio, but I thought you might enjoy celebrating this one with me. Let it be a Christmas gift to all of us at MOVEWELL STUDIO!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
