Deep Thoughts by Erin – A New Season, A New Perspective

Dearest Blue Crew, Hope you’ve enjoyed your summer. I was grateful to get away for my first real vacation since my honeymoon 15 years ago. Little did I know when I started a business at the age of 30 that I’d put so much on hold to invest every ounce of my being into...

PURPOSE & PASSION — THE ANTIDOTES TO UNCERTAINTY

Now, more than ever, I appreciate the power of connection. I feel it so deeply when I’m teaching, even with everyone on the other side of a screen. I am thankful to be part of an amazing community and for the opportunity to both teach and learn, to give and to grow. Life is too short to have it any other way. 

It’s Now or Never

Alkalign is a small business. We are not funded by VCs. We are no longer buoyed by government relief. We must operate “in the black” to keep our lights on and our doors open. As our accountants advised us, now is the time to 💩 or get off the 🚽.  A...

What Do Sparkling Wine and Alkalign Have In Common?

I recently had the privilege of taking a family vacation to Europe. We met up with friends and family along the way and enjoyed both “touristy” and local experiences. One of the most amazing and authentic was part of the Second Annual Gastronomic Corpinnat Festival...

7 Reasons Alkalign’s Livestream is Better

Back in March of 2020 when the world suddenly shut down, Alkalign had one mission: To keep clients moving with and connected to each other, for both physical and mental health. There is power in community and we knew we were going to need this Blue Crew community more...

I took a 3 month break from Alkalign and here’s what happened…

You all know and love our master instructor Cathy P! She came to the studio over a decade ago with an IT band injury. Back then, she was running a ton and was not stretching or cross-strengthening. Soon after embracing Alkalign regularly, her IT band was feeling much...

You Can Do Hard Things

1 Year. 52 Weeks. 365 Days. Not that I'm counting. 😉 It's been a year since my complete achilles rupture while playing pickleball on a super hot summer day. I look back at that day with regret because I didn't listen to my body. With a history of minor calf...

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.
