What if wellness was simple and easy? Imagine that.  The "No pain, no gain theory" isn't a one-size-fits-all concept. Actually, it's why most people "fail" at getting fit and healthy. You haven't failed, the methods have. The idea that it has to hurt to work has failed you.

Lisa Lent proves that taking the path of least resistance is the true way to wellness when more strict and aggressive methods have failed us. People who have experienced a lot of pain in their lives often have a strong resistance to exercise, making them depressed, lethargic, anxious, and keeping them in chronic pain.

The IMI approach allows people to feel safe and comfortable in their own skin.  Being harsh and critical only leads to dissatisfaction of self, where being kind and accepting, enjoying movement for the fun of it, leads to relief and uplifts our vitality. 

The group class dynamic is a great way to begin a new habit of exercise. IMI classes are offered to foster making gentle exercise a part of your everyday life. It's a practice, in a supportive, fun environment. 

Currently, private and special events are held upon request at specialized locations. Contact Lisa Lent to offer IMI at your location. 

HERE ARE SOME REACTIONS TO THE CLASS:

“Fabulous Class. I always feel so great after.” - Valorie K

“This was fantastic! So much fun that I barely realized I was actually getting a workout...this is so right up my alley.” -Carisa M

“I’ve been struggling with finding an exercise program post breast cancer and major surgery again this May. Nothing really felt fun until your class!  It’s engaging and feels like a workout but not overly so, which suits me fine right now.” - Claudia L

“The class was amazing. Good to know there is a class for all shapes of people to participate in. Had a blast.” - Janine B

Lisa Lent is a proud educator of the gentle approach to wellness through dance movement, it has transformed her life profoundly and she is sharing it's benefits with groups of people who feel that exercise is always a burden. She inspires other's through her personal experience and sharing the essential message: 

"The body heals itself, all we need to do is learn how to read the messages of our bodies with curiosity, instead of simply numbing out or distracting ourselves. We can unlearn what beliefs, thoughts, and patterns no longer serve us. All we need to begin with is a desire to feel better and the belief that it's possible."  

This integrative fitness approach plants the seeds of body awareness; accepting how we feel now, and nurtures wellness through repetition.

Awareness is the first step to wellness.

It is now a big epidemic that so many people feel out of touch with their bodies, especially in a culture that "kills" pain and distracts our minds from how we truly feel. Feelings are actually our inner-guidance system. How people feel matters more than we realize.

It's important to have a healthy connection to our physical bodies to feel satisfied with our lives. Wellness is now a social movement. Support along the way is essential to our good health.  Finding the right team to inspire us is key to our well being.  

The same miraculous force that created your body is the same energy that heals it. It's key to stop judging how we are now, to love ourselves into feeling better. 

As we learn new healthy routines, we feel better, we grow in our confidence, we feel more vitality, we get better and we become our greatest selves. 

Your life is your message. 

Why Movement Is The Medicine

Once circulation starts flowing and we feel more aware of our bodies and start feeling relief and improvement, we naturally want to take better care of ourselves through gentle exercise. Commitment starts with a desire to feel better more consistently, knowing we deserve to feel better as often as possible.

Kindness will get us much further than brute force and having goals that make us feel bad about ourselves as our bodies are. We may need more strength or flexibility, but we need to appreciate our bodies to feel better about ourselves.

If the thought of Boot Camp makes you cringe, you might love a gentle approach to getting exercise into your lifestyle.

Movement is medicine, massage is passive movement! So many people learn self-care through massage to reconnect with their body. Massage inspires more movement, which inspires better self-care, and so it goes. 

But if massage isn't how you want to begin your integrative and holistic wellness journey, you can begin with a discussion about getting inspired and prepared for you this next chapter in your life. Contact us to request an Integrative Wellness Consultation. Baby steps are still steps forward! Having the desire for improvement, wanting to feel better, curiosity and courage to learn new things is all that one needs to start their wellness journey.
