Together let’s go against the grain and fight the messages that tell you to go go go. Meditation can provide you a reset button in as little as 1 minute.

Despite all this, and because I'm a driven person, I set out to follow the nagging voice in my head reminding me to be curious and somewhere there would be a fit for me. My story is not unique, I have tried a lot of exercise options, and found them hard to stick to. For me it all clicked into place when I was open to trying a “new” class called barre3. It must have been divine intervention, as a small room of mirrors, windows and ballet barres would not normally fall in my wheelhouse.
