That said, we're always encouraging our members to try new things, experiment and stay flexible (figuratively and literally!). Here are five classes you should mix into your workout routine at least once so you can... Read More

Fascia Release

We've all heard about the importance of strengthening muscles, gaining flexibility and getting our heart rates up through cardio. But in today's go-go-go culture, we rarely prioritize slowing down to release tight, stiff tissue and rehydrate the fascia. Although we tend to forget about the fascia, it's arguably one of the most important areas to focus on because it binds together muscles, organs and tissues throughout our entire bodies! When we neglect daily movement like walking, yoga, dance and Pilates, the fascia... Read More

Stress

In today's world, it seems that stress is the number one complaint most people have about their lives. Ask anyone how they're doing, and chances are, they'll answer something along the lines of "oh you know, busy!" We tend to glorify "busy" while pushing our personal sense of wellbeing and relaxation to the bottom of our to-do lists. As we transition into a chaotic holiday season, let's change the dynamic and focus on cultivating calm in healthy ways. Here are our... Read More

Big news: a Registered Massage Therapist is coming to Generate! Today's go-go-go culture can often wreak havoc on our stress levels.

Movement

We all know that sitting for extended periods of time can have negative effects on our health. But now, recent evidence is showing that standing for too long may also lead to cardiovascular disease, back pain and increased inflammation. If sitting for too long and standing for too long are both potentially detrimental for our bodies, we like to think the solution is simple: move more! According to the official website for the world's Blue Zones, global hot spots where... Read More

happyfeet

Your feet are the foundation for your entire body. After all, we stand on them for most of our lives: we use them for walking, running, jumping and more. Our poor paws endure endless stomping, squishing, cramping, flexing and pointing, which can often lead to imbalances in the structure of our bones, hips and spine. According to biomechanist Katy Bowman, our feet are of prime importance when it comes to maintaining mobility and good balance at any age. In her... Read More

Dynamic Aging

It's a widely held belief in our culture that the older you get, the less mobile and agile you will become. We tend to believe that during the aging process, our bones deteriorate, our posture slumps and we have increasing difficulty keeping up with a rigorous exercise regime. However, here at Generate, we like to debunk common myths about what's possible, especially for women over 40. It's our belief that you can achieve balance, posture and grace well into your...

Mama Wellness

Motherhood is a beautiful journey full of miracles. That said, we all know becoming a mama can also be a bit daunting: what should you eat while pregnant? Which yoga poses should you avoid? And what's the deal with the whole birthing process, anyway? To help you answer some of your burning motherhood questions, we've developed two amazing workshops for new moms and soon-to-be mamas. Join Ariel Whittaker-Brown, yoga, Pilates and barre expert, and Adrienne Cotê, holistic nutritionist and doula this fall... Read More
