Celebrating 7 Years!

by | Apr 19, 2022

Seven is significant for many reasons. Seven is my favorite number. Although there are biblical and spiritual associations with this number, I was drawn to it long before I knew of any of them. Perhaps it started with the fact I was born on the 7th of the month or that my golden birthday (turning 7 on the 7th) was one of the greatest birthdays of all time. I’ve always been drawn to 7. Seven functional movements. Seven wonders of the world. Seven days of the week. My first daughter was born on March 7th. And to proactively address any potential sibling rivalry, my second daughter was not born on the 7th but we did name her Elle after my favorite letter L, which looks a lot like an upside down 7. The ideal pH in the body is 7 (ok 7.2, but close enough), I ran 7 marathons back in the day and Alkalign was built from conception to release in 7 weeks. When I picture a 7, I envision a fulcrum where 4 is the center point that allows for dynamic balance, kind of like a seesaw. Even numbers imply perfect. Odd numbers allow some room for exploration on either side of the fulcrum. 

And so here we are…7 years into this wild journey of Alkalign, and I am feeling more excited than ever. I am confident in who we are, especially after the trials and tribulations of COVID these past 2 years. Which, btw, felt like 2 dog years, another multiple of 7. 😉 We, as the Blue Crew Community, have the opportunity to positively impact the world, one day and one experience at a time. 

In order to be here another 7 years from now, we have to keep growing. The impact of COVID and loss of 3 brick and mortar studios has been nothing short of devastating. But as with any loss, we gained knowledge, perspective and gratitude for something that we previously took for granted. We also gained an amazing Livestream Studio which is a robust offering of engaging, 2-way classes that you can tune into from anywhere. This is our chance to flourish beyond the four walls of the Los Altos studio. 

Please help us grow this amazing community by spreading the word. What do you love about Alkalign? What sets it apart from other exercise experiences? Share that authentic enthusiasm with your friends. Reach out to not 1, not 2, but 7 of your favorite people who you believe will also benefit from the strength that this Blue Crew Community provides.

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.
