MIndset & MOtivation
Achieve your most meaningful goals and enjoy every step of the journey.
A big goal is achieved by doing the small things well, consistently, and with enthusiasm. My intention is to assist you in igniting the fire within and cultivating intrinsic motivation for a healthy lifestyle.
I believe we all have a tremendous amount of potential, but bringing our goals forth requires patience, daily attention, effort, and practice. I look to modern day research in psychology and neuroscience for ways to "be the best you," but at the end of the day you've got to have your heart in it not just your mind. Desire is futile without devotion.
Find a movement practice that works for YOU.
Movement is more than just exercise or burning calories. Movement and yoga asana can penetrate deeply and help you tap into the unlimited wellspring of energy that flows through you.
A personal movement practice addresses your goals, lifestyle, and weak links, and continues to evolve as you do.
First, move like a human- make sure your joints move well, compensate for overuse patterns, and put time in for a healthy spine. Be Functional First.
By forming new movement patterns you build new neural pathways in the brain. You get smarter, more proficient, more dynamic, and if your heart's in it for the right reasons you become closer to the ONE in all of us.
Food is energy. The food you eat becomes the energy you radiate.
You are unique and I don't believe one diet fits all. In general, I focus on 4 main principles: eat real food, eat at the right times to optimize energy, eat intuitively by eating the right foods for your constitution and lifestyle, and eat mindfully.
For years I have been a student of various diets and nutrition protocols. I have studied sports nutrition related to a variety of sports and body transformations. I also study Ayurveda and Oriental Medicine approaches to nutrition and food choices based on one's unique constitution.
