During this pandemic, I want to go back to my WHY.
My mission in life is to help facilitate healing on a global scale through community and service.
These are uncertain times indeed. I understand that there are a lot of folks out there with decreased working hours, or without a job at all. But if people are healthy, they are going to be 50% less likely to be susceptible to disease. Stress and inactivity weaken the immune system. What helps people get healthy? Exercise and meditation to de-stress and strengthen the body. I want to do my part to help individuals raise their vibrations.
So here’s what I’m offering for FREE:
Personal Training Sessions (on a donate-what-you-can basis)
Free Virtual Meditation Classes (several times daily)
Free Virtual Fitness Classes (several times daily)
Santa Cruz CORE Fitness + Rehab (the integrative wellness center that I founded in 2009) will be hosting the classes. We want to contribute, both locally and nation-wide, so tune into our donate-what-you-can live streams!
We’re not sure how long we can support this model, but we are going to provide these pay-what-you-can services for as long as possible. We REFUSE to turn people away just because they can’t spare their resources.
We also acknowledge that the working population isn’t the only group affected by Shelter in Place ordinances. Schools across the nation have closed indefinitely, leaving kids without structured physical education. We are streaming all ages, kid-friendly workouts every day from our studio.* Pay what you can, and tune in for a fun, creative way to exercise at home with the kids.
If we can get our community—our nation—healthier, we can all get back to work sooner and come out of this challenging time stronger and more unified than ever before.
