Gord, who attends my Stretch Class, shared this beautiful short film with me and I want to share it with you.  It’s a beautiful story, a beautiful film and a beautiful project. I hope you will take the time to watch it.

I think any exercise program, not just yoga, can have a significant impact on your life.

If you  attend my classes you know my motto: “Yes I can!”.  We use it in class anytime we feel like we want to give up. I also encourage you to use it in your own life whenever you feel like you want to give up.

I love to hear, “Ali I thought of you the other day when blah blah blah…. so I just said to myself, “Yes I can!” and I made it through. I love to hear that it helps you as much as it helps me!

Well this video takes it to a whole other level. If you have ever felt you can’t accomplish something, then let this will inspire you to really know that “Yes I can!”.

 It’s so incredible, I hope you will watch.

I strongly believe that almost all ailments of age can be prevented with exercise, a healthy diet and a positive outlook on life.  Truly, this the the fountain of youth.

This video does such a great job of illustrating that.

“As long as I’m growing and learning then age doesn’t matter”.

“People start stopping, that’s when they start getting old”.

So worth watching!

SingleBallJumping41000pixLast week I taught 18 classes, yes eighteen.

Among them some really tough boot-camp style classes and a super tough spin class.
To be honest I was concerned I might not be able to get through them all.

As the week began, I thought to myself, “Gee-sh, what was I thinking!?”, I’m going to be dead tired after this.

But no.

I found myself so infused with energy I could hardly sleep!

I would fall a sleep in one second but then wake up 6 hours later raring to go, even though I desperately wanted to sleep longer.

I thought, “Oh no, I’m going to need to nap in the afternoon”.
But no, I did not feel tired in the afternoon.
Between classes I found myself with boundless energy.
I got so much done, I had an incredibly productive week.
By the end of the week I was craving more!
I even considered going to a class for myself, but thought better of it.
There were a few moments I had settled in at home and didn’t feel like going out to teach.
I put some energetic music on and by the time I arrived at class I had all the energy I needed.
So the next time you’re sitting at home and you don’t feel like going to workout and you know you should and you kinda want to but you’re just tired.  Put some music on that gives you energy, force yourself into your workout clothes and just make yourself go because that bit of exercise will give you so much back!  Trust me, I know.
