7 dimensions of wellness graphic
Chris and I were recently in San Diego at a business conference primarily attended by other health and wellness businesses, 1400 bodies to be exact...lots of great energy and a blast to be a part of!!! 

One of the key note speakers started out her presentation by encouraging us, as health professionals, to consider that wellness is much more than just physical health, exercise or nutrition. She shared a visual (see left) that suggested in order for us to live a balanced and good life we need to look at every one of these areas in our lives, and if we notice that one of these areas seems neglected we need to give it more of our attention. 
So at BL we, not unlike other fitness & yoga centers, are committed on a daily basis to our students' Physical Wellness...we have many classes and workshops to help you look and feel your best. We also support your Emotional Wellness through the relaxation provided by yoga & massage. BUT what we would really like to think sets our studio apart from others, is that we also put a lot of emphasis on Social Wellness!! We created the space we call "The Link" to foster connections between both students and students as well as students and staff!! We offer social hours after partner yoga, we host wine weekend get-aways, and we offer an annual holiday Yoga Rocks/Sip n' Shop (Dec 1st) as an opportunity for staff and students to have a chance to come together and celebrate the holidays. 

OH BUT I saved the best for last... in an effort to nurture your Social Wellness (and perhaps a bit of my Emotional Wellness), we have rented out the Milford Cinema, 945 E Summit Street, this Thursday, October 26th and will be coming together to watch the Sing along version of Mamma Mia (best movie EVER)!! So grab your friends, or come and make new ones...dress like a Dancing Queen, or come as you are, bring a beverage of your choice...but just SHOW UP!! Remember there are 7 dimensions to your wellness and your Social Wellness is just as important as all the others...”You can dance, You can laugh...Having the time of your life!!” Hope to see you there!!

Seven Dimensions of Wellness

Social Wellness: The ability to relate to and connect with other people
Emotional Wellness: The ability to understand ourselves and cope with the challenges life can bring
Spiritual Wellness: The ability to establish peace and harmony in our lives
Environmental Wellness: The ability to recognize our responsibility for clean air, water and the land
Occupational Wellness: The ability to get personal fulfillment from our jobs or careers
Intellectual Wellness: The ability to open our minds to new ideas and experiences
Physical Wellness: The ability to maintain a healthy quality of life that allows us to enjoy life

As I drive back from a trip in the upper peninsula, I’m awed by the change in the color of the leaves even in just a couple of days time!! It made for beautiful scenery as we 4 wheeled along the trails as well!!

First of all you need to know that I am truly a massage junkie!!  I love everything about getting a massage…the chill time…the fact that its so good for my muscles and connective tissue AND of course because it feels SO good. Massage therapists are always amazed by how fast I dive under those covers and am ready to be rubbed!!

Two of my favorite things start a day apart from each other...BL's Yoga Teacher Training kicks off on the 17th, and the next season of Dancing with the Stars on the 18th. Now I know you must be thinking that there couldn't possibly be a correlation between these 2 exciting events, but I will beg to differ!!!

I’m sure many of you would agree with me that if you were asked to sum up Body Language in one word you may say “community”! We work really hard to foster an environment where students and staff alike feel connected and welcome. In fact, when designing our space for our recent remodel, we even created a common ground we call the “Link” intended to offer students and staff a place to link or connect, to hang out and chat and get to know one another.Read More

I just got back from a girlfriend trip and as part of our adventures we went “mucking.”  I know, I hear you… what the heck is mucking, it sounds terrible, and why would anyone electively do it??  Well the pictures pretty much tell all…you strap on tall plastic boots (that we actually purchased just for this adventure) and walk in the mud.  Read More

summer shake up antics

As I sit down to write these antics I can’t believe we are already more than ½ way through July… and am hoping that you, like me, are taking every opportunity to soak up every minute of this amazing but short lived Michigan summer!!   That being said, we are entering our last month of our Summer Challenge… I’m playing right along with you and have to say that it has been truly a challenge to get 20 different teachers in!!  I’m getting close (just 5 more to go), but fully aware that I’m going to have to really “shake up” my schedule in order to get those last 5 in.  Read More

So I'm working on a nutrition presentation for the Barefoot Festival the last weekend of July!!  I know many of you have enjoyed taking classes from the amazing teacher, Beth James, who has taught yoga at Body Language from time to time over the past several years.   Well, she is the one hosting this event.  You can check out the link below to learn more - it's a fabulous weekend and right here in our own back yard!  Many teachers from BL are among those leading classes and, at 2:00 on Sunday the 30th, Read More

Believe it or not, there is usually a method to our madness!!  So when we came up with the Summer Challenge it was based on the fact that a lot of our students fall off or even disappear over the summer months.  We all know that summer months are fleeting and full of all sorts of distractions but then come Fall we see you guys back in class and on your mats all discouraged about losing strength, flexibility and often gaining a few pounds!!   Read More

boss handstands
As we all know sometimes we are moving forward on what we think is this perfect plan…let’s call it Plan A, and then all of a sudden Plan A is no longer an option.  So, we can stomp our feet and pout and throw a fit OR we can move to Plan B!! Ok so…Chris and I had the summer schedule all thought through, drawn up, and sent out to all of you, known as Plan A, BUT, as of yesterday, we had to do a bit of shuffling and re-adjusting and move to Plan B. Regretfully, Plan B involves temporarily cancelling our cardio drumming classes due to an instructor conflict, but know that we are on the lookout for other instructors to bring back this popular class asap!!
