Movement is medicine.

Movement is medicine is what I internalized very early on. I grew up in a snowy small town in upstate New York, where I illegally entered aerobics classes. I had to be covert because the rule was, “You must be 18 years or older to enter” so I would wait for class to start and hide in the back row, behind some taller people and hope the instructor was nearsighted. I’ve always been a goodie-two-shoes –hating the feeling of being in trouble – but that room was a place of inspiration and good vibes, two things I was willing to go to jail for!

Movement fortifies the body, settles the mind and lifts the spirit. What else does that? With no negative side effects to boot. Movement truly is medicine….and magic. My wish for you is to experience the magic for yourself.

And now, so many years and miles later, movement is medicine is what I continue to preach. I study Pilates, yoga, Reiki and dance. I travel the globe teaching and training my barefoot fusion method. I write wellness books and create user-friendly at-home workouts. Time and time again, I’m wowed by the power of movement in people’s lives, including my own. If you are new to exercise or haven’t found something that “sticks”, come with me and I will show you the way – Let’s Move!
