This was a dream come true! I had the honor of hosting the Moms in Training team of Philly and other incredible women for a fitness fundraising event to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I created this Mind, Body, Spirit Seminar to teach these women how to connect with their minds, control their body and affect their spirit.
We all had the honor of listening to Ashley Markowich kick off the event with a moment that struck every chord on living for the now and being a survivor. Ashley was able to announce that she is now cancer free after battling Stage 2 Hodgkins Lymphoma. Her experience touched every heart and soul in the room and connected us all with the importance of love and support. Thank you again Ashley for sharing your life and journey with us.
I led the women on an intro to developing the basics of a strong, positive and productive lifestyle. We spoke about the mind body awareness and connection, positive and negative self-talk, and using your energy.
The exercise workshop included Fitness With Rachel fundamentals: total body functional and core strength, balance and flexibility and kettlebell training. My goal was for each of them to learn principles to adapt into their routine to help them take their mind and body to the next level.
The day concluded with a wholesome Mind, Body, Spirit smoothie bar, raffles and a silent auction for awesome goodies donated from gracious businesses in the Philadelphia area.
I enjoyed my time with these women so much and to unite for a cause made the experience even greater for all. Thank you to everyone who participated and donated. Looking forward to many more Mind, Body, Spirit events and spreading the movement of strong, healthy positive living!
