What is a Movement Practice?

At ABC, we've helped our clients find their best life by establishing a regular movement practice. So what is a movement practice?

A movement practice is a set of corrective exercises working toward larger, natural movement patterns like squatting, walking, and getting on and off the floor. All of these moves are key to being healthy and well! 

Through this process, we teach mindfulness, positivity, and growth. The key word here is "practice"... we don't preach perfection and emphasize this process takes time, observation, and patience! A movement practice is meant to change over time. 

Most importantly, we teach you to think through the process so you don't have to depend on us forever, but we are here for problem-solving and guidance whenever you need it! If you are ready to learn more about a movement practice, contact us to schedule your FREE consultation today!

What Amazon's Philosophy Has To Do With Your Health

“We are stubborn vision. We are flexible on details.” -Jeff Bezos

This philosophy of Jeff Bezos that drives the culture at Amazon is a huge reason behind their success. By keeping the overall vision in mind and not getting too caught up in the details they consistently grow as a business.

If you don’t feel you are living your healthiest potential, adopting this philosophy may just be the thing you’ve been missing.

If you’ve been searching for some secret to optimal health for years but feel like you just haven’t found the right thing yet, you might be too focused on the details and not enough on the big picture.

If you want to be healthier, focus instead on being flexible about the details of how achieve it.
