Focus On: Quiver Pulse

You guys. I got the chance to try a workout that is TAKING OVER southern California. It’s like yoga, Zumba, meditation, and strength training all in one: Quiver Pulse!

Quiver pulse

It’s still in the grassroots phase right now, but I was invited to take a special class in a quaint and beautiful studio space:

When I left, my energy was literally buzzing out of my body. 

Here’s what Quiver Pulse is all about:

Quiver Pulse involves isometric holds and slight muscle vibrations. The great thing about it is that you can do it anywhere at anytime; all you need is a bit of space, your own body weight and a focused mind. To Quiver Pulse, you close your eyes and let yourself become in tune with the natural vibrations and energies of the earth. Next, you’ll extend one limb, and start to quiver and pulse this limb to match the surrounding energetic vibrations. I found that if you start off slowly at first, and then increase your pace, it works really well! Feel the pulsie burn!

Practicing the Quiver Fly:

thoughts on two (January 15, 2015)

I can’t even believe I’m writing these posts right now. Every time I type, think, or start to imagine baby #2, I get flooded with emotions, which is usually a mix of giddy excitement and a little bit of fear. I say the last part, because -I’m sure many of you have experienced this- we […]

Hi friends! How’s the day going? Your comments this morning were cracking me up. SO many good ones!

I was just excited because we met at Starbucks. The day […]

Hiiiii Happy Monday! How’s the day going? Sunday was so glorious. I started the morning off with an orangetheory class, which was the perfect power mix of plyo and intervals.
