Trying Things On For Size

I love reading self help books. Anything about personal growth or maximizing performance and I’m all over it. I like the idea that we always have the opportunity to make things better: for ourselves, for our friends and family, for our community, for the world.

My Feet Don’t Like The Wild Surprising Ride into Aging But Here We Are

My feet had had enough. After a challenging handstands class (If you’re not sure why handstands would bother my feet, try getting into a down dog pike position, then jump up and down for an hour. That’s basically what a handstands class is.) and wandering around Capitol Hill for PrideFest, […]

Got a New Osteoporosis Diagnosis? Let’s Talk About Fitness Choices

Just in the past several weeks I’ve had many clients come to me with a new diagnosis of either osteoporosis or osteopenia. It’s understandable: my typical clientele is female-bodied folks over 60 and with that group we’ve got a collision of two important factors. One is that female-bodied folks are […]
