onIt's that time of year again that I take a pause on all things work and take some time away from the computer. Or at least try! Be sure to read to the end of this email to hear some brief updates and housekeeping items I'd like to share before I go…
With not being in your inbox until later into August, I wanted to share with you some links, videos and articles of interest. Feel free to peruse them over the next few weeks.
I'm seeing more published research on mask wearing and exercise. Dive into the details here:

Housekeeping notes for you:
I'm over a year in with a weekly email newsletters to you. Thanks for letting me be in your inbox week after week! Please know that I consider it a privilege to be there.
Yet, it is still a work in progress and I thought best to share with you that I haven't completely figured it all out. Long story short, I've been bouncing between two platforms to share my regular weekly newsletter and on the first of the month using an automated service to send you an article round up email that includes great articles, videos and recipes. And guess what?! It hasn't been working as smoothly as I'd like (who would have thought trying two platforms would be an issue?!).
Some people get all the emails and some people are not getting them all (mostly the first of the month emails). With that being said, I am going to take some time to transfer to one platform (mostly for my sanity!) and try to keep the first of the month newsletter but it will look a little different. All the same content but coming from me directly not the automated service. Make sense? On August 1, you may receive two copies of the article roundup. I apologize for any inconvenience.
My goal is to have my newsletter in your inbox on Sunday morning and the article round up arrive on the first of each month. You can also think of me as your fairy godmother for when you feel confused about all things physical activity, exercise and moving your body!
If you enjoy my content and want to make sure that you see these emails, you can drag them from your promotions folder to your inbox or add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book.
Wishing you a wonderful August!
Stay well and happy moving,
P.S. Believe it or not, I'm building my Fall schedule right NOW! And it includes offering Yoga Therapy! Into August, I'll have the booking system up and running. Learn more about the details on my website now!
