Why Mobility? What’s In It For You?


I absolutely love yoga and movement through group fitness. I started group fitness back in the Jane Fonda days – in 1988. I never thought that I would come to love it as much as I do now and what a wonderful impact it would have on my life. I have also seen so many beautiful and positive results through the community at Mountain Yoga Health and Wellness and have especially been surprised at the positivity that yoga and movement have brought to my life. I have always enjoyed interval training, step aerobics, circuit training and other similar exercises. I had no plan of doing yoga until I was asked to sub a pilates class for a friend years ago. I went to her class in preparation to sub and I found that she was actually doing a combination yoga-pilates. It came as a total surprise and I was hooked. I immediately registered and took a basic yoga teacher training course so I could start teaching yoga.

For me, it has been important to incorporate all times of movement into my health plan. I find that classes that incorporate Cardio endurance training, muscle endurance training, muscle strength training, flexibility and mobility, and balance have enriched my life and in a big way. We try to pass this philosophy on to our clients at blue mountain Yoga Health and Wellness.

It is also well documented in the literature, that any type of movement as we age increases our lifespan (links below for articles that support this science).

What is "mindfulness" anyway?

When I took my first yoga class, I thought "how can you even wrap your mind around that?" I was solely interested in doing power yoga and I really didn’t care. But as my journey into yoga has continue
