Practice Mindfulness. Your body was designed to walk. Walking is a powerful tool for gaining balance, stamina, strength, lowering blood pressure, and inspiring creative thought processes. In this busy world with all its demands we sometimes lose focus on the importance of being balanced within ourselves. At times we need inspiration to find our rhythm and feel good from the inside out. At The Coast Ridge, we begin by placing one foot in front of the other. By finding our stride as the fresh air fills our lungs and the trail becomes a moving meditation, we are brought back into balance and harmony with mind and body. Imagine giving yourself 4 days to tune in, shape up and let stress wash away. Embrace what life has to offer.
Our commitment to health, kindness and awareness to ourselves is essential so that we may live in harmony and with kindness toward others. It is our decision and in our hands the quality of life we choose to live. Get inspired to break old habits that don't serve you or your goals and replace them with healthy, happier choices! This is the beginning of a shift to your health that is more intuitive to maintain and sustain.
Be prepared to unplug, dive in and work your butt off; literally. Boost your metabolism, a healthy, sustainable physical way. Learn a new way to look at food and exercise.
Our philosophy includes low impact activity for a sustained period of 5-6 hours a day along with yoga and core strengthening allowing your body to kick start its way towards a healthy loss of fat and physical awareness.
