Philosophy

“I believe life is a journey, and we are meant to be happy and share our joy, but in order to achieve this state of joy we have to find true balance and genuine mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health. To accomplish this, we must move through our blind spots; the things that stop us from finding our best selves and living in our gratitude. I believe we have to slow down, look deep within, listen to our inner voices and find out who we are and what we stand for. Part of this process involves finding the things we love doing and committing to moving our bodies every day to keep our bodies and our minds strong. We must remember that while we may not achieve perfection in our workouts, our food choices, our relationship or our selves, we can live every day with pure intentions and make the choice to eat healthy, participate in daily physical activity and build nurturing, personal and loving relationships.  We must practice self-respect, strive to remain open to laughter, love, and the light around and within all of us.”
