Dynamic Aging 4 Week Series – September 12 – October 3rd!

The Dynamic Aging Book Club is a 4 Week Series that incorporates discussion along with doing the exercises in the book… all with hands-on guidance from Carla Harless, a Nutritious Movement Certified Restorative Exercise Specialist.

Dynamic Aging, written by Katy Bowman along with 4 of her long-time students, gives practical advise about how to move more & move well as we get older…so that we ca keep moving as we get older!

Learn how to care for your body—feet, ankles, knees, hips, back, shoulders, pelvic floor, brain, and all the rest—in a whole-body, whole-life way. Biomechanist Katy Bowman points out that even when exercise programs are followed diligently, exercisers get joint replacements and take medications at a similar rate as couch potatoes. This is why it’s time to differentiate between exercise and movement. They are not the same thing, and if we ignore the wide variety of possible non-exercise movements, we won’t age as robustly as we can.

Katy’s paradigm-shifting approach helps you create a dynamic and movement-rich life using corrective exercises and their practical application. Come discover how to put the movement back into your life, no matter what your age.


Why drive from San Antonio to Boerne for yoga?

The drive from San Antonio to Boerne for Yoga

It is only 35 minutes from downtown San Antonio to the studio door.

One of the first things I hear when I tell people that I opened an aerial yoga studio in Boerne is “That’s too far, I wish it were closer.”  I live in downtown San Antonio and rarely leave 410; I understand. Then, my perspective changed.

First, our studio is amazing. To me, some places just feel right for yoga. After looking for a location in San Antonio for a year, I couldn’t find a space that was safe for aerial yoga and felt right. This studio has a special energy. Every time I enter to doors, it is like taking a good deep breath.

Then, I rationalized about the distance, it is only 10 to 15 min past La Cantera. A wonderful treat is that it is all highway from San Antonio to studio door. On the best days, from downtown, it takes 35 minutes. On bad days, 45 minutes. I used to work at 281 and Stone Oak, and that drive was always longer for a shorter distance.

But then something changed. My yoga practice became part of my drive. Every loop I crossed was part of preparing for yoga. When I cross 410, I let my work stress fall away. When I cross 1604, I let my personal stress fall. By the time I get to Leon Springs and Fair Oaks, I am breathing deeper, have less chatter in my head, and feel ready to be fully present for yoga. Pulling up to the studio door, surrounded by oak trees, I have changed spaces and perspective.

San Antonio Yoga to Boerne

This is what I feel happening as I drive to yoga.

Yoga is a practice that begins with our body on the mat or in a hammock. I found that yoga becomes a practice that has changed the way I interact with the world. Take a deep breath and then take the drive as part of your practice. Come see why we are such a special place.
