Moira Wessell – Rebuilding Strength & Finding Community

by | Feb 24, 2022

Have you ever been reintroduced to your body that felt completely foreign to you after an injury? Or had to unexpectedly rebuild your strength and confidence from the ground up? It happened to me when I completed cancer treatment nearly 10 years ago.  

It’s not often we have a chance to start from scratch as adults – maybe after an injury, an illness, or a pandemic spent sitting on our couches at home… It requires a lot of patience and determination, reserving judgment as you set different goals than you might be used to. It takes support from those around you when you’re frustrated that progress will be measured in months, not days. And then, one day, you hit a big milestone and realize that you made tremendous progress.

I’m lucky to have found the community at Alkalign that works with me and celebrates my own journey, and I became an instructor to support others as well. If you’re coming back from an injury or need modifications that work for your body today, please let me know. Wherever you are on your journey, I’m here to help and to cheer you on.

It Doesn't Have to Hurt to Work

A NEW, 2-week FREE program we are offering to any and all who want to get off the hamster wheel and try something that 1) works and 2) you will enjoy in the process. No more beating yourself up and spiraling the shame drain thinking you have to do more and be more. We embrace a philosophy that it doesn’t have to hurt to work. The extremes aren’t sustainable. Be kind to yourself. Be kind to your body. Slow, steady and sane wins the race of life. And we are here to help you along the way.

Hi! I’m Erin and my passion in life is helping others feel better by helping them get out of their own head. So much of our relationship to food and fitness is a reflection of deeply rooted beliefs that were imprinted on us at a very early age. These beliefs drive all sorts of behaviors, many of which are not good for our physical or mental health. I know this first-hand. As a former calorie-counting cardio queen I played right into all the toxic messages about what it meant to be “healthy”. That all changed when I hit rock bottom. Since leaving my corporate career in 2009 I have been fully committed to shifting the narrative and helping people experience better physical health by unpacking unhealthy beliefs. My biggest inspiration are my two young daughters, who I hope to raise in a household that openly illuminates and addresses the misinformation instead of adopting it.
