When I moved to LA in December of 2001, it was with the sincere desire to be of service and share the joy of movement. My intention was clear, and remains clear to this day. Having the opportunity to share yoga, fitness, meditation, dance, and women’s health in English y en Español is a privilege that I never ever take for granted. I enjoy the medium of video content because it allows me to connect with more people, in the comfort of their home or at work.
During the shutdowns of 2020 and part of 2021, our world learned about the power of connection, including online connection. Connecting through platforms like iFit, as well as networks like ABC and Telemundo, provides the opportunity to share the joy of movement with people all over the world. My vision is global, and I have some very specific goals for the next 5-10 years.
You are an expert on fitness for ‘expecting moms, and new moms’. What fitness tips on exercise and diet do you wish to give to this segment of women’s audience?
Your body is a miracle! Your body protects, nourishes, and supports your child. Remember to say thank you to your body, to celebrate the changes, and to connect to the power of motherhood. Exercise, meditation, and healthy food can help sustain you while your body, mind, and heart undergo dramatic changes. Your baby will benefit from your healthy choices as well. Be kind and patient with your body and remember that each day will be a little bit different.
Some days you might have a lot of energy, and you can channel that energy into a more challenging movement practice that cultivates strength from the inside out. Other days you might feel more tired, and with good reason, your body is quite literally constructing your baby’s organs and bones. On the days when you are feeling fatigued, honor that, and remember how hard your body is working, even when you are at rest. Softer, more receptive practices like stretching, walking, and meditation can help you connect to your body, the rhythm of your breath, and your baby.
