Alright.  It’s all about me today.  Sorry.  But not sorry, ’cause it could be all about you, too.

Here’s the deal.  I’m looking to update some of my marketing and promotion materials.  Get some higher quality videos up on my website and get some before and after pics.  You know what I’m talking about.  Here’s where you come in.  I’m looking for two people to be models for said materials.  I need one person to go through the standard Rolfing 10-series, and one person to go through a less-traditional non-formulaic 5-series.

This is what you get for your time and willingness:
Better posture (Yay!)
Less pain (Whoo-hoo!)
33% off your sessions so they’re $80 instead of $120.  That’s a savings of $200 for 5 sessions or $400 for the 10-series.
My best work, ’cause I’ll be showing off for the camera
To be famous (at least for a moment on my website and in my promo materials)

This is what would be required of you:
You must commit to all 5 or 10 sessions, at my Denver office, to be completed in a minimum of 5 or 10 weeks respectively and a maximum of 6 months.
You must be able to start your 5 or 10 series by February 5th.
If you’re interested in the 10-series, you can’t have had a 10-series in the last 5 years.
You must be willing to be photographed in your underwear (or short shorts and a sports bra/tank top).
You must be willing to have those photographs used on the interwebs and in my promotional materials.
You must be willing to be video taped during all 5 sessions or the whole 10-series.
You must have the same willingness for those videos to be used on the intertubes and in promo stuff.

So, what do you say?  Are you interested, SassyPants?  Or do you know someone who might be interested?  Shoot me an email with why you’re interested and when you would be willing to get started we’ll go from there.  If you have any questions, let me know those, too and I’ll get back to you asap.

Yay!  Videos!  Yay 10-series!  Yay 5-series!  Yay photos!  Yay!

Housekeeping stuff:

Demo Day is tomorrow (January 16th) and there are only a couple spots left if you or someone else wants to give this Rolfing/SourcePoint thing a try.  $10 for 30 minutes.  New clients only.

I’m now open on Fridays in Denver.  How exciting!

 

Happy New Year, SassyPants! I hope your holidays were lovely and just what you wanted them to be. I spent all of Christmas day in my pajamas, so it was a success in my book.

So this is the time of year when everyone’s making resolutions and starting fitness programs and cutting calories and whatnot. More power too ‘em. Generally speaking I’m not a fan of New Year’s resolutions. I think January’s a crappy time to start new projects since this time of year is all about rest, introspection, and slow germination. Spring is the time for new projects and ambitious goals. On the other hand, I’ve had a strange feeling lately. It’s as if I know, deep in my bones, that the habits I form now, the patterns I create now, are the ones that are going to stick with me for the rest of my life. This isn’t the time to plant new seeds. But it is the time to start looking through the seed catalogs to pick out what I will plant in March, April, and May.

It feels like now is the time for me to decide what I want to grow in my life. Instead of “Lose 20 pounds by May 1st,” I’d rather cultivate a healthy, active lifestyle. I love biscuits and gravy. But do I want to be the sort of person who eats biscuits and gravy for breakfast every day? Or would I rather be the sort of person who enjoys them a few times a year, as a treat? ‘Cause let me tell you, I LOVE me some biscuits and gravy, but I never get up after a plate of them feeling amazing. And I want to feel amazing pretty much every day. So I need to figure out what I can do to feel amazing pretty much every day. This is what I came up with. My list of things I’d like to cultivate; this month, this year, this lifetime.

-A positive outlook
-Spontaneous dancing (including, but not limited too: dance-walking, dance-cooking, dance-cleaning, and general booty-shaking)
-Connecting with family
-Expecting abundance
-Healthy, delicious home-cooked meals
-Lots of laughter
-An active life
-Vitamin D supplements every winter
-Generosity
-Hugs and snuggles
-Loving the animals in my life
-Random acts of kindness
-Gigantic, overwhelming love
-Smiling at strangers
-Quality time spent with quality people
-Patience
-Lots of kissing
-Dreaming big
-Gratitude
-Reading a lot
-Growing plants, including my food
-Embracing down-time
-Making things from scratch
-Being enough, right now, in this moment
-Quality over quantity in every aspect of my life
-Beautiful, sacred spaces
-Time spent outdoors
-Getting enough sleep every single night
-Listening: to my body, to my intuition, to the earth, and to my friends
-Going deeper; getting to the heart of it
-Stretching: physically, mentally, emotionally

So what about you, SassyPants?  Are you a resolution maker?  Are there things you want to cultivate in your life? Who are you going to be (today, this year, this lifetime)? And are you brave enough to share it with everyone here in the comments?

Happy growing!
