It doesn't have to hurt

The human body – your body – thrives on movement.

It craves movement to feel energized and alive,

uses movement to become strong, supple and agile.

That's how it's designed

And yet sport, dance and exercise can make us feel something else:

sore joints, stiff muscles, and that awful feeling of

I can’t do this anymore!

How is it that sometimes, movement makes us stronger and healthier,

makes us feel amazing,

and sometimes,

it can hurt us and wear us down?

What if you could deliberately choose movement that supports your body,

rather than breaking it down?

What if you could transform your body and movement step by step

so that being in your body felt like a gift?

You can. You absolutely can.

Even if you currently look in the mirror and hate what you see,

or injury has stopped you from doing what you love.

Even if you resent the feeling of aging,

or long ago accepted that pain is a necessary evil in training.

You absolutely can.

Pity we didn’t learn this at school.

But you can learn it now.

It’s a process. A process that will be unique to you.

It’ll take a little curiosity. A little courage. A lot of attention.

and,

with each step

Your body will thank you
