Today Beryl is chatting with Jen Hoffman - a good friend, mom of 3, and founder of HealthyMoving.com. Jen is not your average fitness instructor - she’s a public accountant turned certified personal trainer and registered yoga teacher. She uses this virtual studio to help students all over the world to weave healthy movement into the fabric of their day. In this episode Jen and Beryl deep dive into so many topics. Listen and as they chat about: How Jen is redefining the definition of creativity and her life. How ‘paying attention’ as a busy mom is the first step in to weaving more health and wellness into your day. Why creative individuals NEED to move and the unexpected results when they do. And for us couch potatoes, Jen shares her favorite tip for making movement more enjoyable. HOMEWORK: Snap a photo that shows how you're PAYING ATTENTION this week.

The Holiday Season is upon us, and your calendar and to do list are filling up. You are probably thinking you don’t have time to worry about your health and wellness right now. But, I want to convince you otherwise. In this episode, I’m going to explain why you shouldn’t just coast to the end of the year. (Hint, you don’t want to arrive at January 1st with a ton of guilt and shame that will sabotage your New Year’s Resolutions before you even start!) Then, I am going to give you a reasonable action plan. You won’t have time for long workouts or sessions on your yoga mat over the next few weeks. So, I’ve got inspiration for simple exercises you can do while you shop, bake, road trip, watch tv and party this Holiday Season!
Every major religion and faith tradition teach about the power of collective prayer and meditation. And many scientific studies confirm not only the positive effects of these practices on the practitioners, but also on the communities they inhabit. (Yes, collective prayer and meditation have been shown to benefit people who don't even participate in the practice!) In this episode, my friend Heather Filipowicz and I are inviting you to help us harness that power on election night! Join us for a #PeaceArmy and pause at 8:30pm on November 8th for a moment of collective prayer and meditation. Get more info here - HealthyMoving.com/PeaceArmy
