A Posture Quirk We All Share

Rewire Your Core Strength My life has been committed to dance, fitness and posture. And although everyone I have ever worked with has a unique tension template that presents a unique posture blueprint of his or her life story, there is a generic posture quirk that we all seem to share. We typically keep our […]

Inner Space––The New Frontier

Empower the Space in your Pelvis     Remember Carol Burnett’s secretary character, Wanda Wiggins, played opposite Tim Conway? She was a constant distraction to her boss, Mr. Tudball. In addition to having an exceptionally low IQ, her blonde curls, fitted skirt, baby-doll sway back and turned in legs left Mr.Tudball persistently bewildered and distracted. […]

Relax the Need to Be Heard

Find the Innocence of Listening You know that sinking feeling you get when you have your hand up in a class or round table talk and the mediator isn’t calling on you? You have something relevant to say, but the powers that be silence you. Typically for me, after recognizing that the dialogue was going […]

This Gallup poll also said that even alluring workplace perks like nap rooms, free lunches, and massages did nothing to improve engagement. It makes sense. Perks don’t address how we connect with […]

GIVE UP ON PERFECTION… and embrace certainty.

As an adult, the worry of not knowing can raise our shoulders with such a silent eerie creep that they freeze in that position. When we finally notice their up-tightness, we worry that if they […]

Sob Your Head Off It’s Good For You

Expand your capacity to love! You know those moments where no words can express or console your feelings; a deep guttural cry is the only way to pacify the hurt. It offers complete submersion into your feelings–separate from thinking–bringing solace to heartache. It’s as if, physically shedding tears makes room for mental resolution. And it […]
