When reflecting on your day to day lifestyle I think it is fair to say that the majority of us don’t really MOVE .. not REEEALLY!

Let me explain..

Our spines are designed to flex, extend, rotate and side bend. Our joints are designed to articulate and move (some more tha...

Most of us take our ability to balance for granted. Yet if we were to completely lose that ability the effect would be devastating.

“Exercise is a celebration of what your body can do. Not a punishment for what you ate.” – Women’s Health UK.

Ready for a pep talk..?!

Sometimes I think we all, myself included, need to look at ourselves and our daily ‘performance’ differently..
