You don’t need supplements in the summer. Just eat well and exercise regularly. But in the winter your immunity system needs extra help.
Right now I’m taking Omega-3 oil jell-caps. And Vitamin D drops. Liquid form! And Vitamin C used strategically. Right now in powder form, mixed in a glass of water. And a Vitamin B shot at my yearly doctor’s appointment.
Friday Yoga with Ian this week. And Saturday Abs. And don’t forget about Weight-lifting Tuesdays.
What’s your New Year’s Resolution? Survival should be at the top of the list.
Start with getting rid of those extra pounds. Strengthening your heart, fixing your knees and lower back to maintain vital mobility. Improve your overall fitness.
Health is the only currency that really matters. All the wealth, all the real estate in the world, means nothing in comparison. And vanity itself is a beautiful thing if it motivates you to do the right thing.
No classes till this Saturday, the 31st. Come undo those extra pounds with the rest of us. Or email me for personal training and we’ll do it privately.
All of your latent weaknesses and foibles come to the fore. Weight-loss or gain, arthritic knee, plantar fasciitis, hemorrhoids, irritable bowl … whatever it is.
Finish the year with an honest effort. And during the break reflect on where you want to go with with your body. Take a fresh approach. Deal with the top priority head-on.
At Panacea Studio, we offer a selection of classes you won’t get anywhere else. Saturday Abs was popular from the start. Who isn’t somewhat concerned about the size of their gut?
Weight-lifting Tuesday is structured around 5 sets of squats done the proper way. And 5 sets of bench press for the upperbody. You won’t find a class like this anywhere.
Come linger with us… this Friday at Yogic Stretches. This is about moving slowly, lowering the heart rate, and luxuriating in long lingering stretches that just plan feel-good. And expanding your limits.
Yogic Stretches slows movement to a crawl, and holds poses longer. For 3 to 5 minutes as in Yin Yoga.
Thereby pushing and expanding the boundaries of your flexibility, without diminishing the relaxation component. More of what actually works, and feels good, and less redundant activity that gets the hearts pounding.
Less truly is more. After all, it is the end of a long week, Friday night. If you want to get your heart pounding there are plenty of other classes you can take, like Abs, Weight Lifting, Spin.
Significant improvement in flexibility manifests itself. And a lowering of blood pressure. Yoga is also about teaching your body to literally unwind. And that involves getting the mind in the right place too.
Last week’s theme was thinking “outside the box.” Come see what the theme is this Friday,
For 2 months in the summer, I trained my oldest son, Javier. He was 13 at the time.
This was his first year of high school. He joined the weight-lifting club. The teacher instructing the class told everyone not to bench press more than 40 lbs.
Javi told the teacher he could press 85 lbs 10 times. Sounds like an accident waiting to happen, she laughed. None of the kids could even lift the 40 pounder once.
Finally, with a proper spotter, Javi was allowed to show what he could do. Nobody could even believe it. Suddenly, his confidence is growing, as is his reputation. And that bully who was hounding him, has long-since run for cover.
Damn, am I good.
In a household that revolves around exercise, he’s going to get a heck of an education on yoga, cardio, abs. The studio is on the main floor, so there’s no escape…
Come check out the environment. See if it inspires you.
Injuries are our bodies way of communicating its needs. If we spend all waking hours fixing our house, or working, no wonder our physical issues begin to mount.
What good is a perfectly renovated house if we don’t have a properly functioning body to put in it? Getting our priorities straight comes first.
A breakdown in one part body often (almost always) leads to a chain-reaction. For example, a bum right knee causes a limp that hurts the other knee… or a groin-pull leads to a tear in the pelvis, which causes a further problem on that side of the body.
My job is to show you how to stretch and strengthen the muscles around the injury. This is a delicate art. Often you have to dance around the problem before dealing with it directly. And you have to work on the whole body because everything is connected.
Shoot me an email. Let me know your issues. I can help.
