**“Hope and despair are both self-fulfilling prophecies.” – Ernest Hemingway**

If you are in the market for a blue Honda, all you see on the road are blue Hondas. It’s as if they are seemingly everywhere. In every intersection, passing us on the highway, and at the gas station.

Yet, they were there the whole time. We as humans have what’s called the “Reticular Activation System”, which helps us see more of what we’re actively thinking about.

It’s actually a survival mechanism. If we needed to look for food because we were about to starve, we prime our senses to find it. Or if danger was close by in the form of a man-eating predator, we’d prioritize our senses to be very aware of where the threat was, or where it could be hiding. It’s an incredible level of focus that we don’t realize we’re using, bringing what is on our subconscious mind into the conscious world.

Are we focused on what might go wrong? Or are we focused on what will make it go right?

Welcoming Back Lindsay to CFK!

 This Gal is a force to be reckoned with! Crushing the wods like it’s nobody’s business. Lindsay is also a Yoga Instructor and Osteopath Student. She is looking for some CFK volunteers for her Osteopathy program to do some free manual therapy treatments. Read about it below!
Lindsay has an unshakeable passion for healthy eating, fitness and yoga. Her desire to help others has grown out of her own life experiences. Her love for sports and exercise exposed Lindsay to yoga at a young age. What started as a passion for teaching yoga, led her to become a Personal Trainer, Holistic Nutritionist and to study at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy with plans to graduate in April of 2022.
Yin Yoga Blurb:
Looking to add more mobility to your weekly routine? Yin yoga stretches both the deep connective tissue between the muscles, in addition to the superficial fascia throughout the body. By reducing this connective tissue tension, mobility, circulation and flexibility are improved – which means better workouts for you! Bring your mat and your patience as this style of yoga is a little slower than you’re used to!
Osteopathy Blurb:
Lindsay is currently in her third year at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy in Hamilton. As part of her studies, Lindsay needs volunteers who are open to receiving Osteopathic treatment! Osteopathy is a passive form of manual therapy that addresses all tissue types; musculoskeletal, neurovascular, visceral and lymphatic. With this holistic perspective, Lindsay is able to treat the body as a whole, looking at the structure of the body and the interdependence throughout the body.
If you are interested in being a volunteer and receiving free manual therapy treatments, please contact Lindsay directly.
