Happy New Year 2017! - Fit2B.com - Memberships at Fit2B are on sale!

As I look at the long list of goals that I intend to accomplish in 2017 for myself, my family, my business, my home, my faith… I have to admit a small part of me is eyeballing a couple of the bigger ones and whispering a tiny “Um, yeah right. That’ll never happen.” Then again, […]

E/TS – Basic Breath Work

E/TS - Basic Breath Work - fit2b.com

What could be easier than sitting in a chair while connecting to your core? How about getting into a position where gravity helps you do some of the work? When we are upright, even in a chair, gravity is pulling our weak tissues down and out. If we lay down, lift our hips and support […]

What I {Honestly} Read for Work and Fun in 2016

What I {Honestly} Read for Work and Fun in 2016 - Fit2B.com

Confession: I find it super annoying when people post a list of books they plan to read, and they have this pretty picture of a stack of titles organized alphabetically or by size, because seriously, how does anyone know for sure what they’ll be reading a couple months from now? That stack of books on […]

Who Moved Me at Women in Women’s Health LIVE 2016

Who Moved Me at Women in Women's Health LIVE 2016 - Fit2B.com

I’m a country girl who mostly enjoys just. being. home. It takes something really precious or super sparkly to lure me away from my cozy farmhouse and regular routine. When my colleague Beth Jones of MamaSport invited me to share a cab and hotel with her in New York City for Women In Women’s Health LIVE put on by the Integrative Women’s […]

C/TS – Classic Flow B

C/TS - Classic Flow B - Fit2b.com - Yoga Classic Flow B. Learn the traditional sun salutation Surya Namaskara series with tummysafe modification and better breathing.

Many mainstream Yoga studio classes will begin with 3-5 rounds of Surya Namaskara A followed by B. It’s meant to be a rigorous warm up, and few form cues are given as it’s understood (or assumed) that everyone in the room can execute the proper technique and breathing. However, many people haven’t been taught. They […]

M/TS – Classic Flow A

In traditional yoga, if you practice in the classic style, several rounds of sun salutations or Suryanamaskara are woven into nearly every class. The most simple sun salutation is often called “Surya A” and the more complicated version is “Surya B.” This string of motions hasn’t been included in Fit2B because an INHALE is often […]

So You Have Diastasis Recti… Now What?

different types of diastasis rectus abdominus - fit2b.com

When you first find out you have abdominal separation, and you start learning about how that “diastasis recti” will impact your exercise choices and basic activities of daily living, the awareness can be overwhelming especially because the internets will typically try to convince you to have surgery  or just accept it as normal. But watch […]

K/TS – Kids Bedtime Routine

K/TS - Kids Bedtime Routine - fit2b.com

Think about it: Even as grownups, we don’t just hop in bed, shut off the lights and fall asleep. We chat with our mate, read a book, maybe watch a short show, write in a journal, and take a while to get our own wiggles out. Children are no different, and actually they have so much […]

E/TS – Fingers & Toes

We spend a lot of time with our hands curled around devices and our feet shoved into socks and shoes. Yet, no muscle is an island. Everything that happens in the top of your body travels down. Everything that happens in the bottom of your body travels up. And sideways. And crossways. The tension in […]

E/TS – Scarf Down Some Stretches

Scarf down some stretches... with a scarf? -fit2b.com

On a colder day recently, I was watching Netflix and not feeling like “exercising.” However, I forced myself to just start by standing up and stretching a bit while I watched the show, and as I got warmer, I took off my scarf that I’d been wearing in our drafty farm house. Only I didn’t put […]
