Focus: Your Song!

"A bird does not sing because it has an answer. 
It sings because it has a song!"
 ~Maya Angelou

Every person is unique and different and that is wonderful! Take time this week to recognize what song you want to, are called to, or choose to sing. You don't even have to sing your song, you could dance it, perform it, or live it! When you recognize your song, choose to sing it, and sing it loudly and proudly.

Each week has a focus and intention, you can keep the PoleMoves weekly intention and focus in existence thoughout your week by posting the focus on your wall or wearing a bracelet, or string, around your wrist that is intended to remind you of the focus. You can also create a piece of art with the same focus and intention.

Balance Convention

On the weekend of Jan 26-29,2012, our very own, Rebekah Hennes, registered dietician, and founder, and teacher of PoleMoves, will be presenting at the Las Vegas Balance Convention, at Planet Hollywood.

"Hosted by ECA World Fitness and Mad Dogg Athletics, Las Vegas Balance brings together the worlds top presenters and programs for the area's most innovative, inspiring and educational fitness convention. With its comprehensive lineup of world-class sessions, this event will challenge and inspire you like never before. "

Rebekah will be presenting multiple times over the weekend, leading attendees in PoleMoves workout classes, as well as lecturing on Intuitive Eating.

Here are the descriptions of her two presentations:
"Pole Fitness classes are becoming a popular form of exercise, but they have not yet permeated the health club scene. Experience the fluid movement, spins and holds that create a PoleMoves class. Explore a fun new way for your students to increase their strength flexibility and endurance.

"Intuitive Eating- Diets are plentiful and most people want a quick fix, so they buy into the belief that losing weight and keeping it off is possible through dieting. The fact of the matter is, 95% of diets fail. In this session you will learn some of the habits that your clients may have which keep their bodies at a higher weight than is natural. When they recognize and change this simple ways of relating to food, the weight comes off without dieting and maintenance is simple."

Good luck to Rebekah! Stay posted to our blog, facebook page, and twitter for our updates during and after the convention.

Focus: “I am grateful.”

"The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes." ~Marcel Proust

See your body with different eyes. In our culture, looking at our bodies and critiquing them has become normalized. This practice does not cause the body to change for the better. Instead it causes decreased self-esteem, acting as if we are "less than" someone else, and sometimes not caring for, and not being grateful for, our bodies. This week, allow yourself to be grateful for your body. Notice what you love about your body, stand proudly, and experience joy in how your body is right now.

Each week has a new Focus and Intention
You can keep the PoleMoves weekly intention and focus in existence throughout your week by posting the focus on your wall or wearing a bracelet, or string, around your wrist that is intended to remind you of the focus. You can also create a piece of art with the same focus and intention.
