ThE ✨BeAuTy✨ of ToUcH
Human touch releases endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers. There are approximately 5 million touch receptors in our skin, 3,000 in each finger tip. This is why I choose not to use tools in my manual bodywork sessions with clients. I like to utilise the touch receptors in my fingertips, because with them I can “listen” to the needs of my client’s bodies and the directional patterns of the release in their soft tissues. Happy Tuesday, babies!! ♥️❤️

When you need MYᎾFΛSƇĪΛĿ ŔƐĿƐΛSƐ . . .
“Some individuals may perceive their losing fight with gravity as a sharp pain in their back, others as the unflattering contour of their body, others as constant fatigue, yet others as an unrelentingly threatening environment. Those over forty may call it old age. And yet all these signals may be pointing to a single problem so prominent in their own structure, as well as others, that it has been ignored: they are off balance, they are at war with gravity.”
-IDA ROLF - mother of “Rolfing” - a type of myofascial release that focuses on restoring structural alignment (one of my heros). ✨

We women are pretty, we can be demure yet at the same time, we can be strong! Not always physical but with our handling our emotion. We can use our pain and sorrow from the past (if you have) to obtain your goals, don't let pain break you instead learn to fight! If we are just uniting as one, we all can do incredible things together! As the saying goes, "FIND YOUR TRIBE AND LOVE THEM HARD", "Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women." I believe in this!
We can connect to one another, connect to an idea. For millions of years, human beings have been part of one tribe or another. In this generation we can have a group that needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to communicate. And that's the mission of #Younique , to #uplift , to #empower and #validate each other!

We have a culture that lives to eat, and while I LOVE food oh so much, I believe that small shifts in our social traditions can bring healthy habits into our time with friends and family. Instead of going to dinner and coffee, taking a walk outside can be another great way to catch up with a close friend!! Walk and talk, walk and brainstorm, walk and business plan! Happy Friday, Babies!!! ❤️❤️

Do you ever think the thought, "I want time to exercise/care for my body, but if I did, I wouldn't have time for friends." I encourage you to arrange times for you and your friends to move together!! This one ☝️ @_jessicachow books fascia and Pilates work with me ~ some of our most memorable moments come while we are caring for the body. . .I love to visit with my parents, but I also want their bodies in great shape for retirement, so, they practice Pilates and self myofascial release with me twice a week. Can you think of the person/people you'd love to train your body with?? Set up a time this weekend where you will be bonding with those you love and caring for your health at the same time!! Happy Friday, BABIES. @jessicashakirbeauty @linsih can't wait to see you tonight for some reformer action!!

Do you have people you can be vulnerable with? If no (or rather, not yet), I highly recommend the book "Safe People" by Cloud and Townsend. It helps with judiciousness - knowing how to find people that will treasure your vulnerability, and steward it with the safest of keepings. Happy Monday, babies!!

Many of my dance students are getting ready to compete in the new season. Did you know that Classical Latin defines "competition" differently than we understand it today? "Competition" comes from the Late Latin word 'competere' meaning "sustain together" or "strive in common" [toward a shared goal]." In Classical Latin "to come together, agree, to be qualified." I love the classical definition, because there is implication for how "competition" can help strengthen and edify your practice, invoking the sustenance of endurance and maintaining the focus of the mind toward a palpable goal. ♥️. Happy Wednesday, Babies!!

I remember my first appointment with @Kaitness - a new client via friend referral - I drove to LA to meet her for a 1st house call appointment (one of my shoulder instability girls 😍). A former senior fashion buyer and current blogger and influencer. . . I had my ideas of what a woman this beautiful and successful woman might be like. . . ✨✨✨Then. . .I found myself laughing and sharing and eventually, praying with this sweet humble spirit ~ who spoke not as though she had the perfect recipe for all of life, but as one who was growing and learning, seeking God, while using loving, passionate language to speak in the support of others. I loved that she sang to Celine Dion and I still think she is darling for making her coffee with a French Press! The warmth she brought to our first meeting informed me that a recipe for friendship had just entered my world, in addition to the blessing of sharing professional talents. The Lord had indeed brought a gem into my path. Happiest of Birthdays, sweetest Kait. God sure has amazing things in store for you and has blessed you with true inner and outer beauty. Very grateful to @jessicashakirbeauty and @kathennessey for sharing you with me!! ♥️♥️✨✨🙌🏻
