One workshop down, another coming up…


Hi there!

Hope your week is off to a good start. I know mine is….it’s amazing what great weather can do for keeping your spirits flying high 🙂

We had our first workshop this past Sunday….and it was a success! Jamie Dougherty from Jamie Living (check out her website, http://www.jamieliving.com) put on “Eating Healthy On The Go” over here at our studio, The Fuse Fitness in Kensington. She spoke about the difference between yin (expansive) and yang (contractive) foods and the need for balance in what we eat for the best digestion. Her 6 simple steps for eating healthy on the go are to reduce caffeine, drink lots of water, eat dark leafy green veggies, increase your sweet veggies, chew your food thoroughly, and make sure to breathe. Jamie also spoke about the need to eliminate all processed foods from our diets…including dry cereals! This really shocked a lot of people….Jamie says that even healthy dry cereals, such as Kashi, are processed and should be avoided. She’d like to see everyone sticking to oatmeal (and not the pre-packaged, sugared up kind 🙂 ) for cereal. Jamie stressed the importance of eating organic when it comes to meats and dairy–you don’t want animal products that come from animals that have been pumped with hormones and antibiotics! All in all, it was quite informative and everyone enjoyed it! We’ll definitely be having her back for another workshop soon!

Our next workshop, “Jumping in Feet First,” is coming up Sunday October 16th, 1:30-3:30pm with the lovely Cynthea Denise! She is one of our amazing yoga instructors and you can check her out on her website, http://www.shaktimoon.com. Here’s the info on the workshop and what it entails:

“In the Iyengar tradition of Yoga much attention is paid to the feet as the foundational support to healthy, strong and fluid standing postures.  Reflexology reveals that all of the organ systems can be effected by working with the feet.

In our day to day life we cover our feet with shoes and go about our day without paying attention to our feet unless they hurt.  In this workshop we will take a look at the anatomy and function of our lower extremities and how simple daily attention can improve the function of the feet and how this will effect the rest of our body.
You can sign up for this amazing, informative workshop on our website, http://www.thefusefitnessstudio.com.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your day!
Yours in Health,
The Fuse Fitness
