Deep core and pelvic floor exercises are some of the most important for your body, especially if you’re a woman. They’re the reason why I can still jump on a trampoline after having four children! (As long as I don’t have a full bladder and have to sneeze at the same time – ha!) These
If you’re feeling stuck when it comes to your body, you’re not alone. My new FREE workshop is an opportunity to discover how to cultivate a healthier relationship with your body, food and movement—so you can embrace self-acceptance and prioritize your mental health without sacrificing your health goals. So many of us are confused by
You may have heard someone say, “just listen to your body” and thought: “How do I even do that?” I get it. Learning how to listen to my body has been a practice of mine for the last decade—and I still have to be mindful about it today. This skill is crucial for maintaining a
You’ve probably seen or heard the phrase “mindset is everything” a lot lately—and for good reason. Your mindset creates the lens through which you think, feel, interact, and behave.

When workouts meet you where

(Our standing workouts are a favorite in the community.) Another thing we love is how fun these exercises can be. Forget workouts that are repetitive, long,

At Lindywell, we consider somatic breathwork a conscious form of breathing that is intended to help you experience being in your body. It teaches you to
Here at Lindywell, we’ve been focusing on turning play into a daily habit, both on and off the Pilates mat. What I’ve found is that taking time for play is about so much more than just having fun—it’s an essential component of my mental and physical health. As adults, however, it can be difficult to
If you search “how to calm your nervous system” in Google you’ll find hundreds of options—and I’m very intentional about how I do this too. It’s something we talk about all the time at Lindywell. A favorite of mine, though, is play. It’s one of the most overlooked ways to stay well. It’s easy to
July is here and that means it is time to have some fun. Every July we break out of our routines, let go, and focus on play. This year we have a special guest to join us and guide us as we play. Kara Latta is the Chief Fun Officer at The Playful Warrior and
