As the weather warmed you emerged from corona quarantine.
Over the past few months, you’ve been coping with work and school transitions for yourself or family. The working from home thing meant stuck in a chair for hours. Your newfound baking skills have resulted to the infamous “quarantine 10/15/20” pounds.
As our clients have returned to Kinetic Konnections we find they have some common concerns. Feeling:
- stiff from sitting so much
- tired out, from lack of exercise and/or the extra 10/15/20 extra pounds
- puffy from lack of activity or too much sugar and salt
How-to videos for a quick tune-up
Knowing you want to get back to your active lifestyle, I put together a few Bridging®-based movements you can use for a little tune-up so you can feel better and move better.
All you need is a little open space and a friend. The first uses an exercise ball, the other two are done on a flat surface such as the floor or a bed.
Each of the movements refreshes a specific aspect of core organization. When these movements work better you can breathe more easily, move more fluently and feel lighter on your feet. Once you’re moving again much of the stiffness, puffiness and bloat should clear up. The real bonus — brain clarity!

You need special coaching, via a virtual session, if these describe you:
