Lately, I find myself replacing the term "workout" with the term "movement". Movement feels good, and it has an energy that resonates with what I do. I recently saw a recording of one of my classes, and I started it off by cheerfully saying, "Let's move!" Yeah, I thought, THAT sounds like fun, and not like a chore. If everybody thought of exercise as fun, we'd have a very fit community! Words have power and I think "movement" has the power to change people's perception of what workouts are, from negative to positive.
I teach yoga and Pilates and dance and fitness and breatthing. I love them all so much that I do them all together! But ultimately, what I do is not yoga or Pilates or dance or fitness or breathing....it's mindful movement.
