Testimonials

I came away with so much more than I expected.  I imagined I’d learn a few new calisthenics I could do at my desk a couple of times a day to supplement the hard core workout I should be doing after work.  Instead, I learned how easy it is to move throughout the day (even though I have a desk job) and that little bits of movement really  do add up.  Maybe the biggest accomplishment has been that I no longer feel guilty about not being able (or even wanting) to keep up the no-pain-no-gain exercise routines that ultimately created more stress in my life.  I’m now beginning to  remember how much I used to truly enjoy moving my body for no other reason than just because it feels good.  Thank you! ~C.N.

I would like to thank you for everything you've included in the course.  It's very much what I need to accomplish my health goals.  So much is explained and I truly need the movement exercises to loosen up my body. ~L.L.

From doing qigong, my energy is flowing in a new way and I am finally able to let go of what I no longer need and release the thoughts that were the source of my neck and head pain. I am grateful for the peace I feel knowing I have overcome a lifetime of anxiety and anger for assuming responsibility for the pain of others. ~E.L.

I always feel that I have to push myself, work up a big sweat when that is really not anywhere in my comfort level. I’ve always done a slow and steady form of exercise and thank you for confirming that that was a good thing to do! ~P.E.

I have really really enjoyed the 30 Day Movement Challenge and learnt a lot. Thank you for being so generous with sharing information and with your time. My kids are doing the 100 steps after each meal and with virtual schooling, they are also trying to move more during the breaks, thanks to the awareness that you have created. ~B.K.
