Health, Fitness and Generosity

May 10, 2011   //   Fundraiser, Yoga  //  Comments Off on Health, Fitness and Generosity

In the larger integral spectrum of health and fitness, our emotional experiences plays a very important role. Think about how your mental attitude effects your perspective in life, even only during the cycle of a day. Quickly, you’ll see that emotions are a primary driving force for just about all that we do, and don’t do.

Bearing this in mind, when it comes to health and fitness, the emotional drive behind our reasons for staying healthy has a direct impact on the quality of our results. In other words, the result of our work and its impact on our health is not determined only by what we do but by how we do it.

An exercise program that is connived and performed with the intention of enjoying the process, appreciated for its benefits on our body and mind, that is creative, fun and effective has a very different impact then one that is conceived and performed unwillingly, with unpleasant feelings attached to it, that is not fun or motivating.

Well, this is very exciting! What you are about to read is the very first Blog for In Forma, better yet, for In Forma’s NEW web site!

As we open this new “season” for In Forma, with the newly updated, more informative and expansive website, we intend on renewing our commitment to service you, our clients, at the best of our ability. This renewed commitment is also a reflection of our ongoing evolution and dedication to continue to create an environment in which health, fitness, education and community, come together to support an integral approach to life and wellbeing.

We’ll do our best to continue to offer you a wide range of health and fitness classes that are reflective of our integral approach, from the latest contemporary fitness creation of our talented instructors, to the much needed use of the ancient health and spiritual practices of the East as in Yoga and Tai Chi. Now more than ever, the integration between the scientific and more body-focused approach of West and the ancient wisdom practices of the East, is an essential element to help us support the demands of our frantic lifestyles. If seen as two aspects of an all-encompassing approach to health, integrating contemporary fitness and ancient practices in a balanced blend of life supporting activities make just perfect sense.
