Mindful and Intuitive Exercise

I am a former fitness competitor; I have walked the walk.  Years of running, stairclimbing, circuits, high intensity interval training, jump lunges, pop squats, Body Pump, 100's, drop sets, super sets, box jumps and step aerobics have landed me on the table of chiropractors, physiotherapists, massage therapists and surgeons. I have disc protrusions, sciatica, SI joint problems, pinched nerves and extreme tightness in my hip flexors and hamstrings, all of which cause me incredible amounts of pain, with still no end in sight after 5 years of therapy. I believe, at least for me, that sustainable, lifelong fitness will be centered around gentler movements, such as walking, yoga and playing with my children.
