Move Well with Ballet Austin
The evidence is clear—physical activity can make you feel better, function better, and sleep better.
Movement is powerful. Moving your body daily is one of the best things you can do for your overall health; it has the power to improve every part of your body…and your brain. It is something you can do for you!
Physical activity is anything that gets your body moving. According to the CDC, adults need about 150 minutes of physical activity each week. There are 10,080 minutes in each week. Therefore, less than 2% of your week needs to be allocated to movement. That’s doable!
We are advocates of micromovements; spreading out physical activity throughout the week. Move more and sit less throughout each day. We also believe that if you find an activity you enjoy you will stick with it, will keep moving. Wherever you are in your workout journey, start where you are and let’s move together!
March ushers in the start of spring. Spring represents new beginnings; a season of rebirth and growth. It is the perfect time to start fresh. If you’ve been wanting to make a change in your life, do it now! Begin to move well, eat well, and live well. Make springtime you-time.

3 Phrases That Will Transform the Way You Look at Movement
The way we talk to ourselves about exercising — both out loud and in our heads — has a tangible effect on our behavior and whether or not we keep up our movement routines in the long run. With the start of spring it is the perfect time to say goodbye to exercise and hello to self-care. Spring is about change and new growth. Apply that to your workout routine!
Move Well Quote
“Much more of the brain is devoted to movement than to language. Language is only a little thing sitting on top of this huge ocean of movement.” – Oliver Sacks
