During Monday’s Core-Flow class I invited the group to contemplate group-feel. I referenced Dr. Dean Ornish’s research on the reversal of heart disease, and the important variable of being part of a group.
Online movement programs such as Peloton (stationary biking), are revolutionizing how we’re working out. Since COVID, it seems there are two camps: those who’ve thrown in the proverbial towel (hence COVID-19 on the scale), and those who’ve discovered alternative movement opportunities. If you’re from the first camp, the missing link may be lack of “community”. If you’re the type of person who gets inspired from moving with a group, then moving alone, in front of your computer, may not be enticing. On the other hand if you’ve adjusted to the online COVID landscape, a Zoom class may fall easily into your day.
Although virtual synchronized movement gatherings require some adjusting, they have perks. We now move together, unbound by proximity. Social networks, limited by geography, are more inclusive and available than ever. Technology is making it possible for someone who once lived in Waterbury, to join our group from Pennsylvania (welcome Karen).
Mindful Movement classes are a supportive, collective cauldron where everyBODY is invited to move, sit, and gather. When you’re ready to add yourself to this magical recipe, join us; the Zoom-room is always open.
