Energy and Intent


My new daily affirmation to align my energy and intent:

The light of higher levels fills every cell of my body.
I create, I manifest this alchemical process.
I am the sole creator of my destiny.
I am the light that fills the space.  
I am an awesome, powerful, and radiant being of light worthy of this love and 
worthy of being loved on this high level.

Authenticity baby!

Put up your heating pad and get moving!



Fascinating article this morning from NPR news:

Farewell, Heating Pad: Physical Therapists say it doesn't help

Heat therapy, electrical stimulation, ultrasound and other "passive physical agents" almost never help, according to a list released Monday by the Choosing Wisely campaign. Instead, they siphon time and money away from what you really want from a physical therapist — an exercise program that will restore strength and mobility.

Moral of the story time - next time your back or neck or anything hurts and you just feel like staying at home to rest it on the couch…DON'T.  Stop in to Urbancore for a class or private session instead.  Keep yourself young, agile, pain-free, and happy with PILATES!

Corkscrew!


Done correctly (the reformer and magic circle are optional), corkscrew can really blast the obliques. Keep it slow and make your number one priority to stay in a neutral spine as you come through center (no arched back).

End of summer, Chicago-style


Remember last winter? Neither do I. Just a reminder to bask in our recent high temps, for they are fleeting! Take a sweaty walk or jog and kiss summer adios.
