Outdoor Fitness is more than a work out.. It’s connecting you with the Earth.

This is an exert from the MysticMamma.com website where you can find reports on the meaning and folklore behind planetary movements, wisdom and insights. This adds another dimension to why training outdoors is good for you.
John O’ Donohue from Beauty: The Invisible Embrace
“When we emerge form our offices, rooms and houses, we enter our natural element. We are children of the earth: people to whom the outdoors is home. Nothing can separate us from the vigour and vibrancy of this inheritance.”
“In contrast to our frenetic, saturated lives, the earth offers a calming stillness. Movement and growth in nature takes it time. The patience of nature enjoys the ease of trust and hope.”
“There is something in our clay nature that needs to continually experience this ancient, outer ease of the world. It helps us to remember who we are and why we are here.”

CORE workout

Straddle Pike Core

Client Sophie has advanced to the deep stuff. Oh yeah. Today we worked on Silent Strength. The Yin of exercise. SLOW movement. Everything is about speed these days. I’m into form and core developing alongside speed and power. Speed and power on their own lead to injury.

So we did suspension training, dance conditioning, deep stretches and inversions very very slowly. Poise, form, control, consciousness, feeling the minutiae of muscles, ligaments, weak spots, working out who you are physically!

The slow movement movement….

A session like this can be adapted to all levels and is offered as part of the journey you’re taken on when you buy a series of sessions. Sophie started out this journey like everyone else just looking for weight loss but after 18 months is on a new dimension of body strength and fitness. Although most people come to me wanting high intensity sessions to get rid of the fat quickly, the value of spending time holding positions and developing deep core strength is critical for long term health, fitness and peace.
