Changing the Way People Approach Fitness & Their Bodies
“The path to the soul is through the body.
When we create harmony between mind, body, and soul we become unstoppable.” Eva Nagy
Elevate Movement Therapy in Fitness Studios
Eva is a former professional athlete with over thirty years spent immersed in fitness training and has been working with private clients for ten years. During this time, she learned a lot about her client’s physical and lifestyle challenges, (common injuries, not having enough time or energy) their motivation, and training goals.
She realized that most fitness classes encourage intensity without considering the issues people face today. For example, sitting in front of the computer all day, inactive lifestyle, demanding jobs, too little sleep, unhealthy diet, and tons of stress.
“One in four American adults sit for more than eight hours a day according to new federal research from investigators at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).”Alice Park. “Most Americans Spend Way Too Much Time Sitting Down. Here’s How to Avoid Being One of Them.” Time, November 20, 2018, https://time.com/5459319/americans-sit-too-much/
People develop muscle imbalances from long periods of sitting, and are more prone to injuries. When people don’t get enough rest on the top of high stress, taking an intense class could further drain their batteries, fatigue their adrenal glands, and suppress their immune system.
As a side effect of stress, people often end up living with a constant level of anxiety, fearing that they’re not doing enough or good enough. This alters their daily choices and quality of life.
Slowing down and lowering stress can significantly help people. Unfortunately, the fitness industry doesn’t yet teach the public the positive impact of relaxation and a less stress-inducing workout. What happens instead is quite the contrary—it promotes intense workouts as the best path to fitness and weight loss.
Even though yoga classes are widely available and great for lowering stress, not everyone may be ready to take that route.
Facing these issues inspired Eva to create Elevate Movement Therapy. The class is a bridge between the world of fitness and yoga, where Western logic and knowledge meet Eastern philosophy. She crafted the workout combining her experience as a trainer with everything she learned as a pro athlete, corrective exercise specialist, and yoga Instructor.
The class has three different parts: cardio, strength training, and relaxation.
During the class, Eva guides the participants to reconnect with their bodies and to recognize the power this connection has over their emotions, mind and life.
Warm-up, gets people focused, releases accumulated stress and improves circulation.
Focuses on posture, releasing pain and strengthening.
The class ends with a guided relaxation, allowing the mind, body and soul to shift.
