I’ve been leading workshops to talk about physical movement and how to stay strong and healthy for many years. This is based on personal experience: I’ve been through some major accidents in my life! At 19 years old I had a major car accident, broke my femur, cracked 2 ribs, and suffered a pulmonary embolism. Then 3 years later I got major whiplash from another car accident. Not even a year later I got hit by a10 wheel truck biking and got projected on the sidewalk. I’ve also been hit by a pickup truck at ferry terminal and suffered a lot “littler” accident. I am sharing this with you, so you understand that I’ve been through the cycle of pain and had to learn how to get stronger after all these accidents. A lot of people have asked me: How can I stop feeling pain in my body? Prevent injuries? Improve my posture?  Feel strong and healthy?

With all my years of experience healing myself and helping others, I come to believe that the answers to all these questions is increasing awareness. There is no shortcut to improve your posture, feel strong and healthy, prevent injuries, you need to increase your level of awareness. Lot of people make the same mistakes, they will do exercises and stretches but then only stand on one leg, round their back, push their head forward, slouch. If you want to feel better, be present and increase your awareness. As a yoga instructor, I see tremendous value in connecting with the breath to increase awareness, to anchor yourself to the present moment. Then practice awareness of your posture, the way you sit, stand, move… I make a practice of being in my body, to know where the weight of my body is, to make sure I lengthen my spine, to stack my bones as they are designed to be so my muscles can relax and not be strained by poor posture. When you are present in your body and increase awareness, you set yourself up for success. That is for me the key, the place your journey to a strong, healthy you start.
