It seems that everyone around us is selling us fast products with fast results to keep up with our busy lifestyles. We are being sold ideologies of the perfect life, body, garden, house, car, family, job. We seem to to feed on an endless line of stimulants from coffee, constant high intensity exercises, sugar, sports drinks, prescriptive drugs and alcohol to keep us going. Our consumption is in fact destroying our environment.
The stimulants we have are cramming two days of our life into one. According to Daoist philosophy we have so many heartbeats in our lifetime. Buddhists and Yogis say we have so many breaths in our lifetime. Looking like the pictures below does not neccerily mean healthy. I am not selling six packs which restrict the diaphragm, cause shallow breathing, making us more sympathetic dominate and bring more strain and stress into the neck and shoulder area. Superficial will only attract superficial, we see it all the time around us in everyday life and at work. I am selling a lifestyle and am responsible to educate and give the public the truth.
Healthy means balance and creating what we want in our life, rather than what you don’t want. “Are you running for your life or from your life?” Its like driving a car on the road, if we stay on course we have what’s called homeostasis which is functional balance, if we steer off the road and into the ditch we have what’s called allostasis which is a stressful event and can be conscious or unconscious .
When we bring awareness to the body through the Yin qualities which are nutrition, hydration and sleep and the yang qualities which are breathing, thinking and movement, we then have the ability to know where we are going and how we are going to get there.
The result is effective productivity, creativity, experience are rich and developmental. We now have new CHEK coaching and Summer sizzler Pilates programs which are sold in 3, 6 and 12 months in order to get results.
