An important part of cultivating a positive relationship with fitness is letting your movement be driven by a love and appreciation for your body. Movement isn’t about perfection. It’s about showing up and giving your body what it needs (an important part of loving it). This week’s schedule features a variety of disciplines as variety is a key part of getting to know your body, how it feels in different physical activities, and how that in turn makes you feel as you move through life. Pay special attention to how you feel after each practice.

Choose a class or outdoor movement activity. 🌿
First, celebrate that you’ve done a week of movement (give yourself some love even if you only did some of the classes. Some movement is better than none!). For today’s practice, choose a class or outdoor activity that you love. If you need rest, that’s okay too––give your body whatever it needs. Time: 15-30 mins
