i have stared at this blank screen for a while and have not found a gentle, tender way to share this news.

the whole way health & fitness studio is closing. march 31, 2018 is the day.

ideally, i would like to share this news in a personal, face-to-face conversation with every single one of you who come to the studio.  that desire is not feasible.

most of you know that my life has changed quite a bit recently; there are new other  aspects of my day-to-day that I want to spend more time with. closing the studio made the most sense whenever i dared entertain the thought. the last few weeks have brought me to a place of peace with the thought.

the studio has always been about you. about each and every clientfriend friendclient who has created a space for themselves and, in the process, crafted an amazing communal space. i have had the gift and the immense pleasure of being the steward of that space.

i will not say good-bye to the collective energy of the studio quite yet. there are still kettlebells to swing and clubbells to swipe; lebarre class squats to do and so much yummy yoga to practice. there is a final a.m. ready session to grace our early morning alarms.

i look forward to spending sweaty. sweet time with you in these next months.

thank you.

the whole way health & fitness studio is now offering kettlebell classes designed specifically for those of us dealing with issues related to aging.

there is a growing body of research which tells us that regular physical activity can reduce the risk of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, by as much as 50%. the mechanism seems to be the increased flow of blood — therefore oxygen — to your brain. this is a message consistently put out there by neuroscientists — exercise which increases your heart rate is the best preventative for dementia and a vital prescriptive for dementia.

recent research indicates that resistance training can reverse aspects of aging at the gene level. wow! regular, progressive resistance training also improves the muscle’s longevity profile at the molecular level;  long-term resistance training is associated with a lower risk of age-associated disease and death.

resistance training does more than just make you stronger. it helps optimize biomarkers indicative of overall wellness such as triglycerides, LDL-cholesterol, and HDL-cholesterol in both men and women. sweet news.

mood and mental health markers, like depression, anxiety and response to stress are improved with regular exercise.

the amount of daily or weekly activity you put into your life is totally within your control!  group activities have the added benefit of new social interaction.

the whole way health & fitness studio provides a friendly and supportive atmosphere; a place where you’ll receive instruction with care and expertise.

seaglassthe waters of the world — the oceans and seas — are powerful alchemists.

broken class is tumbled by currents, by waves. rolled in the sands of beaches, stroked along craggy rocks. over time, the sharp edges begin to smooth. the transparency of the glass is polished into an opaque lustre. what was once hard is now soft, what was once hidden is now revealed.

as with seaglass, a meditation practice performs this exact process on our mindheart.

when we sit with ourselves, we discover our hard places, our sharp edges, our cocoons. with time, the sharp edges begin to smooth, the hardness in us softens, the reasons we cocoon fall away.

what was once hidden is now revealed. compassion for self.

compassionate action starts with seeing yourself when you start to make yourself right and when you start to make yourself wrong. at that point you could just contemplate the fact that there is a larger alternative to either of those, a more tender, shaky kind of place where you could live.”
