272: Kristen Luppenlatz Grech: Showing Us How To Feel Great Whilst At Work
Todays guest is a lady who can help all of us, who spend the bulk of our days sitting in front of a computer, to throw off the aches and pains that besiege us all.
She admits to having a compulsion to straighten things in life, from the paper clips on her desk, to ensuring that her feet are in alignment with the tiles she is standing on and used to think it was an unhealthy obsession.
But then found out as a Pilates teacher she could utilize all of her straightening skills and help her students get out of pain with better positioning of their bones,
As she says ” I love my job, I’m fascinated with the way the human body moves.”
But her journey to this point, started in quiet a different route, as she originally studied at the University of California where she got a BA in Drama.
She began her career as an actor in Musical Theatre and doing voice over work, so her future could have been jazz hands, and performing.
Which in a funny kind of way it is today, as she performs stretches and leaps in front of classes of eager students, and on her Pilates For Your Life online video course.
Her mission is to help us experience as much joy in our daily lives as possible, and feeling great in our body will help us achieve that too.
So what was it about musical theatre that made her change direction and move into something that she loves?
And was it a struggle to get going and build her online profile, or did things fall into place unexpectedly?
