What is proprioception
By definition, it is the perception or awareness of the position and movement of our body. It conceptually describes how our nervous system and muscles work in sync to manage motion. Before we jump into complex and specialized exercises, it is important for you to learn how your body moves. These exercises will begin with stability and balance focuses, that will promote neuromuscular communication and will stress your stabilizers, muscles, ligaments and tendons. This allows us to build a foundation for the types of training we will encounter in the weeks and months to come.
Proprioception is essentially a fancy way of saying how we move
The big focus today and for the next two weeks is balance & stability
Take it slow, engage your core, feel your stabilizers fire up
nutrition & general health.

Introduction to happiness
Hi there & Welcome to the SoulFit Family!
We are so glad that you are here. You have already taken the first step to a happier and healthier life and we can't wait to show you what we have planned just for you!
Research shows that happiness leads to better health and is key to sustainable
weight loss. In this journal you will find daily inspiration and positive psychology infused exercises that will help you become happier, craft your purpose, strengthen your mindset and relationships, and and cultivate traits like optimism, gratitude, and resilience. Tomorrow, you will have your first journal prompt, but today we’ll simply start by expressing gratitude for this moment.
Instructions: Take a pause and a few deep, slow breaths. As your mind settles, take a moment to express gratitude for all of the events - both large and small - that led you to this exact moment. Take another deep breath and channel that gratitude inward, to yourself - your courage, perseverance, and commitment to living a life of "wholeness" in body and mind that allowed you to be in this exact moment.
As you begin this journey with us, one helpful reminder: You are exactly where you are supposed to be.
And you are not alone - your Soulfit community is here with you every step of the way as we achieve this goal together.
Now Is The Time.
