Jamie Walker is quite a powerhouse for good change in the Bay Area. As one of the co-founders of Fit Approach, an online healthy living community, she advocates healthy change that’s also fun. We are excited to support their upcoming event, Together We Yoga. Come join us for sun salutations!
Don’t blame the TV, the snack foods, or even your family; the greatest adversary to developing a healthy relationship with your own body and eating habits is YOU. And believe it or not, you may be getting in your way more often that you’d like when it comes to your fitness goals.
If you’re finding that YOU are the problem, one of the best ways to combat your…well, self is to grab a friend!
Partnering with a friend who shares your fitness goals – whether losing weight, getting toned, or training for a big race – adds accountability and challenge to your workouts. It also makes your workouts more fun – you can share laughs and stories while you push, pull, lift, run, cycle - which will help you look forward to workouts and make you less likely to skip them.
If you’re looking for a new workout buddy or to join a new community, I strongly encourage you to check out Fit Approach which is an online community that provides support, encouragement and inspiration for all its members. And if you’re in the Bay Area in September, join us for the TogetherWeYoga event on September 29 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.! TogetherWeYoga is a fun, safe and healthy occasion that will be sure to kick your weekend off right. Located at the Fitness Court on the Marina Green, the day will introduce you to the idea of feeling togetherness through yoga.
I’ll be teaching a lively all levels yoga class and the event will feature a healthy food and products expo from the best in the San Francisco Bay Area. You can participate in yoga contests and win awesome prizes. And you will receive tote bags full of goodies just for coming out to the event!
Sign up for the wonderful day of yoga and community networking here. I hope to see you all there!
