Deep breath in, heavy long exhale out...

What a week. Ahh yes, another 2020 adventure where collectively we felt so anxious, so unsure, so hopeful, so filled with countless emotions that I think we're all still processing and absorbing in our own way today. My stomach hurt, like really really hurt, most of the week. I wanted to believe it was because of the baby, but well, I think hormones were only partly to blame. I've been coaching more breath work in my classes of late because of how much I took some of its ease for granted before. Now, growing this human, regulating and applying my breath particularly when engaging in physical exercise is more important than ever. But shouldn't that always be the case? How often were you clenching your jaw this week, finding your shoulders drawn up, holding tension in your head, neck or any other place in your body? How releasing is it for a solid 360 degree breath? Ya know, one where you fully inhale through your nose and literally feel your entire ribcage expand in every direction.... only then to allow a steady and slow open-mouth exhale where you instantly feel the exact release your body has longed for... One it's begged for even, however, we continually fail to provide. Typically because we're so consumed with letting stress and strain control our bodies and our minds. What do you say we set the intent for this simple practice more? Regardless of how you're feeling in this or any moment, what if collectively we shared a releasing, hope and soul-filled breath more frequently throughout each and every day? I have a feeling my stomach would hurt a lot less. How about yours? In sweaty gratitude, always, -B xo

It's time to ROCK YOUR BASE

I've been asked a few times lately what my long-term plans are with BASE... Will I return to a studio? Will I keep rocking a virtual platform? Will I ever be able to do a sit up again? Oh wait, nevermind. That last one was me. It's funny how much it's still so hard to look forward. How much uncertainty continues to exist for me personally, professionally, ... I mean, for us all really. In some ways, I find this experience has been somewhat freeing. I've never been more present focused, including fully recognizing what I can and cannot control. In other ways, the anxiety that comes with being unable to make set and defined plans regarding my future is crushing. As is the unfortunate, continued fear and doubt that causes me to question the legitimacy of what I'm doing and where I'm trying to go. My husband and I both jumped to start and build our own businesses when everything that was once certain in our worlds was stripped away. I suppose focusing all our energy (and our hearts) into creating something from nothing provided some sense of control. Like, if we push and grind and give it everything we've got, we can tangibly take hold of our future. Which in reality, is umm, slightly hilarious to me now as I continue to fumble along as a clueless entrepreneur riding the glorious sink or swim train I'm on. However, while some things have been lost in terms of stability and certainty, other things have been gained beyond my wildest expectations. Namely, you. All of you, really, that have continued to ride this rather sweaty train with me. I've relayed repeatedly how much your desire and commitment to rock each and every week- whether live, with recordings, or on demand, has meant literally everything. Because it has, literally.meant.everything. Different options become available and look appealing. Our schedules, our lives, change, shift, get crazier... You choosing to believe in me and the brand and continually being motivated by the training and programming I offer fuels my own motivation to keep going. And keep going I am. Where to and how exactly it shakes out, to be continued.. So, thank you, endlessly, for trusting my hazy pursuit and going with me. Let's figure out our long-term plans together, shall we? See you this week, BASE fam. In sweaty gratitude, always, -B xo

How is it Thanksgiving already? Is it still 2020? Where am I? Am I really having a baby? Ya know, casual questions I find myself asking most days. Here's what I'm looking forward to this week, however. A couple BASE sweat parties with my online friends. A couple days off, unplugged, to soak in time with my family. A can (or three) of cheap, canned cranberry sauce. (I mean that sh*t is delicious, no?) What about you? What have you on deck this week that deserves recognition and celebration? It's always so unfortunate that we wait for some tragic event, some magical moment or a holiday, even, to recognize the things we're grateful for, the things we should prioritize, the things that make us happiest. What do you say we carry any joy we feel this week into the week after... the next week... and the week after that... I mean, whoever said I can only eat my artificial nirvana one day of the year? Hope to see you, BASE fam. Bc sure as sunshine, I'm hella grateful for you. -B xo
