In the simplest terms, it's a lifestyle.
Total wellness is the result of our choices to create balance and harmony designed to help us achieve our highest potential for well being as a whole: body, mind, and spirit.
From our infinite universe down to a singular cell, our world works in systematic form. A system is defined as...
As a physical structure we have many systems that work in harmony to create the amazing human body.
Too often in today’s busy world these systems become unbalanced and unstable, creating dis-ease or disconnect.
Some of the most common symptoms we see are various physical illnesses, anxious bodies and minds, the feeling of being lost or unsure of where we belong or what our purpose is.
Rather than focusing on these symptoms, the goal is to introduce different ideas and practices that help create a healthy alliance of these systems working together.
At IM Total Wellness we move from a philosophy that regularly exercising our bodies is a great bridge spanning into all other areas of our lives.
Much like the Yoga philosophies of asana, connecting our breath to focused body movement can be the back door into creating a peaceful mind, we also put special emphasis on mastering muscle movements.
We call this Focus on Form. It is a focus on fundamental movements so that your workout time is spent most effectively and efficiently with less risk of injury.
You can learn more about it here.
Our personalities, purposes and passions are as varied as the paths we choose.
It is our goal to introduce and expand on different practices and resources that you may find helpful in your journey.
Through meaningful choices and actions we can find a balance that creates a harmony to the whole person.
wholeness spills out into the world and helps create the world we wish to
It inspires sustainable living.
