Jen Hoffman of Healthy Moving hosts the Healthy Moving podcast. I love her philosophy and mission: to help you “exercise less but move more, so that you will feel better.”
In Episode 12 of the podcast, Jen shared a segment of an interview she did with yoga instructor and author Judith Lasater. In this interview, Judith says,
“Stay out of the prison of all or nothing. Move in the direction of.”
She is responding to the complaint that so many of us have when we say that we don’t have time to do yoga or exercise.
But really, this could apply to so many things in our lives! I’m thinking of Waldorf homeschooling, for instance. Stay out of the prison of all or nothing. Move in the direction of.
You can go have a listen to this episode of the Healthy Moving podcast here: Episode #12: Move in the Direction Of. It’s only 10 minutes long and well worth it!

Judith Lasater wrote the book on restorative yoga, Relax and Renew: Restful Yoga for Stressful Times. Restorative yoga is one of my favorite self-care practices. It’s a relaxing form of yoga which uses lots of props where you stay in comfortable poses for longer stretches of time. I highly recommend to all Mamas that you find a restorative teacher near you.
At Healthy Moving, Jen also offers a super Coaching and Challenge Program. I’ve been a part of this program for over a year now and have seen such amazing improvements in my energy levels, posture, and capacity to walk more every day. It’s all online so that you can participate from the comfort of your own home.
I also do restorative yoga at Green Tara Yoga here in Cleveland. And a few months ago while visiting my friend Alison in Austin, I got to experience this wonderful practice with Everitt of Yoga for All Ages, complete with Tibetan singing bowls. Amazing!
May we all stay out of the prison of all or nothing. And move in the direction of.
