Helen Simkins: "I was never a fan of exercise before I met Bev" - NSW
I must admit I was never a fan of what I considered ‘exercise’ – structured activities about fitness, or my lack of it, involving things like pushing my body around and counting crunches. Just the idea of sit ups sent my mind wandering toward the fridge, my desk, the couch or, well, pretty much anywhere except toward the mat or the gym…
What I do absolutely treasure is the relationship with my body that Beverly Carter, of Its Time To Shine has inspired, along with a whole new attitude to what exercising is truly about.
Firstly this approach is about movement, true movement, rather than ‘exercise’, first big tick from me!
From there everything is based around a gentle, fluid and confirming relationship with me and with moving my body. Gentle and relationships, can do, second tick!
Bev’s intuitive, honest and encouraging way of working with me has been the catalyst for developing a much deeper trust and confidence in my own body and a willingness to get moving ...
Through these principles I’ve learned there is great power in simplicity and that if I am very much connected to my body when I’m moving it, the simplest of movements can deliver great benefits.
Fitness doesn’t mean pounding and pushing my body around, results aren’t dependent on punishment and my body will lead the way if I support it to – hallelujah for that!
