The focus of our educational community is holistic health through mindful movement and merging fitness with spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical well-being. It is, then, also about shifting from fitness culture away from the extrinsic and body-based messaging and moving toward holistic, mindbody wellbeing.
We're about deep inquiry, connection, and creating greater understanding- all within a framework of body neutrality and mindfulness-based movement.
We are also here to help you find your way home, to yourself and your body. Our goal it to help fitness professionals transition toward a more holistic approach to movement for intrinsic rewards- stress reduction, body awareness, physical and mental health, being present.
Important Notes On Our Community Values
Our space is explicitly body positive, health-at-every-size fitness. This community will always be free of diet-culture (talk about bodies, weight loss, calories burned, etc).
This learning community is trauma-informed and is a safe space for those recovering from eating disorders, and fitness professionals who work with them (and we all do).
Our community is a place of growth and expansion.
