CORE FUSION EXTREME: DON’T LET THE NAME SCARE YOU (TOO MUCH)

By Sophie Barnett, exhale guest + fitness enthusiast

I’m a long time devotee of all things Core Fusion, so when the new Core Fusion Extreme (CFX) class came out, I had to give it a try—and I certainly was not disappointed! In this post, I’ll address the most common questions surrounding taking CFX for the first time!

Q: Is Core Fusion Extreme just an extreme version of the other Core Fusion classes?

INTRODUCING A POWERFUL NEW BREATHWORK SERIES TO EXHALE ON DEMAND

By Sandy Abrams

Breathwork empowers you to create your best mindset and energy in small moments. It’s meditation at the speed of life. Whether you’re simply not wired for meditation (I hear ya!) or can’t justify the time to sit still, mindful breath offers similar benefits to meditation—but in small moments. It’s science! In this excerpt from my book Breathe to Succeed, Morgan Cerf of Kellogg School of Management Northwestern University says, “Breathing at different paces or paying careful attention to the breaths…were shown to engage different parts of the brain. Humans’ ability to control and regulate their brain is unique…These abilities are not trivial. When breathing changed with the exercises, the brain changed as well…These findings provide neural support for advice individuals have been given for millennia: during times of stress, or when heightened concentration is needed, focusing on one’s breath or doing breathing exercises can indeed change the brain.” When your mind and body are aligned utilizing mindful breath tools, you’ll have more clarity, better focus, elevated creativity and a boost in performance and productivity.

I’VE BEEN A BARRE WORKOUT ADDICT FOR THE PAST YEAR

By Micaela English, Senior Web Editor, Town & Country Magazine

True confession, I’m a bit of a “workout commitment-phobe”. I usually find a workout I love (in the past it’s been group tennis lessons, spinning, cardio-based yoga), practice it to death, spend TONS of money in gear/packages, then miss a few classes, and come to the conclusion that I haven’t seen enough results in my physique, and it’s on to something new. This has happened regularly in the 7 years that I’ve lived in New York City, with the occasional 6 month sprinkling of simply not working out. But the truth is, I need to workout, it helps my psyche, it gets my endorphins running, and it’s a great physical and emotional release for me.
