Back in December I had been interviewed by the hosts of the Love Yourself To Happiness Show and it aired last week. It is always a little strange hearing yourself whether it’s on a podcast, like this interview, or on video but I was so glad I took the time to listen to the whole interview. I have been making plans for the JBird Fitness New Year and the words Maia, Michaela and I exchanged last month really drove home the reason why I have made it my mission to not only keep you moving but to also continue to send the message that fitness is not just about your body.
As we head into 2018 I want it to be clear, I am here to show you how to build a strong, free, and happy body. Mind/Body was once just a yoga and pilates thing but not anymore. We are in a new age where any movement practice whether it be sport, dance, cycling, weight lifting, you name it…it can and actually needs to be mindful to last you a lifetime.
So what is all this mindfulness business about?
To me, it is the connection you make between your thoughts and your body and can be applied to how you move, a.k.a conscious movement, but is also your acknowledgement of how exercise plays a role in how you feel.
Keep in mind (no pun intended) we are not just talking about when you are in class, doing a JBird video or even going for a run. We are talking about how it effects you when you are playing (that’s what I call exercise) and even when you are not.
I have always preached to my students that they may have showed up to class for six pack abs and I’ll get you there, but my main purpose as your teacher is to keep you moving freely… for a lifetime. I want it all. For you to look good and to feel good, for as long as you are on this planet.
So what do you say…are you with me?
It’s going to be a GREAT year, so be prepared to sweat, feel & love every bit of your body and have FUN doing it!I

My Favorite New Song is One Foot by Walk The Moon.
Why? With the New Year and new goals we simply need to remember it just takes one foot forward at a time. Keep moving forward and you will reach your destination or even better yet…discover a whole new place you love that you didn’t even know existed.
Thought of the Week:
Move to feel great in your body, confident in your stance & happy in your soul.
