Blood is the life force that allows our organs to work, brain to function, and lungs to help us breathe. Without movement, blood flow would stagnate.

What’s the only real anatomy lesson you need to survive? Our hearts are a magnificent muscle that continuously pump out a blast of awesome oxygen-filled blood to quench the thirst of all our muscles, organs and brain. Once blood leaves the heart and cascades down to our toes, it needs help climbing back up for a refill of O2. How does this happen? A combination of vascular pressure, venous levers, and the forceful pump of our muscles working hard - movement provides that O2 refill. Physical movement isn\'t just important for athletes; it\'s essential for everyone to keep blood oxygen levels high and and stress levels low. So stop sitting, and get moving!

What benefits does
Movement Have?


Navigate through grief, anxiousness, and resignation towards feelings of joy

Anxiety and depression can begin to form emotional barriers around us that can physically change our shape to that of slouching and heaviness. Stand tall, change your state, and begin to feel the joy.


Break the Cycle of Tension in your Shoulders and Back

Slumping over at the computer all day and working on your laptop at night create strong negative feedback loops between your muscles and brain. When your back looks more like a banana than the lean silhouette of an “s” it’s time to start moving again.


Unleash your Potential Through Movement

Mix it up and throw your brain into overdrive as you learn to move in new directions and rhythms to change your patterns. Who knew you could still touch your toes . . . your potential is limitless.


Manage Chronic Pain

The first reaction to pain is often stillness in hopes of gentle resolution, yet movement is essential to healing. This doesn’t require intensity, just focus and flow. Motion is lotion.
