Hike with Anne!

Join me for a waterfall hike this summer!

If you’re not on my email newsletter list, add your email in the “SIGN UP FOR THE MONTHLY NEWSLETTER” box over there to the right —>>>

I send 2-4 emails a month with info about hikes, plus “The Five” exercises, healthy recipes, and local events.

  • Who: You, me, and our friends.
  • What: 3-10 mile hikes varying in length and difficulty.
  • When: Weekends this summer.
  • Where: Various locations, most will be within an hours drive of Portland
  • Why: Get outdoors, move your body, enjoy nature, meet new people!
  • How: Read our newsletters for the next hike date and location.

My goal is to do a long (10-12 mile) hike by the end of October. In July we started with smaller, 3-5 mile hikes. This month were shooting for 7 milers and I’d love for you to join me!

If getting out in the woods in search of waterfalls sounds like fun, keep your eyes peeled here for the upcoming hike schedule and locations. Most of these will be on Sundays. I may do a few weekday hikes for those of you with a flexible schedule.

To join one of these hikes, please text or email me 24 hours prior to the hike so that we will know to look for you.

Please be advised: YOU are in charge of you.

Before venturing out please read the description of the hike to make sure it is suitable for you right now.

Our first few hikes will be easier, as the months progress we will do harder and longer hikes.

The pace will be set by whoever shows up that day. One week we may have a chatty group of slowpokes, the next we may have a more quiet, faster group. By “group” I mean, it could be you n me, or a couple other people. I will walk with the slowest person in the group.

We will be doing mostly out and backs, so at any point you can decide to stop and wait or rest. Some of the hikes will be loops.

Please do not depend on me for medical care. I suggest you pack the hikers 10 and at the very least bring water, snacks, and dress in layers. Expect to be out of cell range.

If you’re interested in getting outdoors, meeting new people and having an adventure this is for you!

Foam Roller Magic!

Don’t worry we’re not sawing anyone in half, or pulling a rabbit out of a hat, or making a bird disappear. Although if you come to this workshop your pain could disappear!

Are you looking to soften tight muscles? Would you like to improve your hip and shoulder mobility? Do you spend hours a day seated in front of a computer or looking down at your phone?

Take yourself through this 60 minute workshop and you will address every major muscle group from your head to your feet! You’ll feel relaxed, energized, and stretched. The recording is available here, so that you can work through these moves at your own pace. Do the whole video all at once, or pick out one or two exercises to work on each day.

Learn the magic of the foam roller!

  • What: 60 minute foam roller workshop.
  • When: Watch the recording at your leisure!
  • How: Click here to purchase the workshop recording.
  • Why: Reduce tightness, improve mobility, strength, and balance.
  • How much: $20

We follow my trademarked R.O.S.S. method – release, organize, strengthen and stretch. To be most successful, you will need a 36 inch, round roller, and be able to easily get up and down from the floor.

This is not a sweaty “workout”, but a movement exploration. You may go at your own pace, and I offer variations, so you can chose the best level for you today.

  • We start with release work, warming up and loosening tight muscles, and facilitating your mind body connection. This is where we will spend the majority of our time today. Juicing up soft tissue, breathing, relaxing.
  • Next up – stabilization and organization to connect to your smaller muscles, and prep you for larger movements.
  • Our short strength program includes a handful of upper and lower body exercises. You learn your most efficient way to accomplish daily activities, like getting up out of a chair.
  • Lastly stretching, and mobilization to help you feel length from your head to your toes.

You will leave feeling relaxed, refreshed, and like you did just the right balance of mobility and strength.

Not sure if this workshop is right for you right now? Give me a call (503) 705-4762.

New Year’s Day Pajama Art Party!

Join us Saturday January 1st at 11 am for our Pajama Art Party!

  • Who: You! And your friends.
  • What: New Year’s Day Pajama Art Party!
  • When: Saturday January 1st, from 11 am – 12 pm PST.
  • Why: Make art, dream about the new year, visit with each other and have fun!
  • Where: On Zoom (your house).

Snuggle up in your most comfortable jammies, robe, and slippers, make your favorite hot beverage, and join us on New Year’s Day!

We color, draw, and visit with each other, and I guide you through exercises that allow you to dream about the year ahead (not fitness type exercises, putting pen to paper).

Email me Anne@FluidPortland.com and I’ll send you the zoom link.

Please share this with your friends!

Free for Fluid Fit Club members. $20 for guests.

Why am I doing this? This week I got to hang out with my girlfriend and her two cute kids. We went for a walk, then did an art project. See my lil Santa?

This took about 15 minutes of me picking out tiny beads, placing them on a board, then ironing it to make this (kind of like shrinky dinks if you remember those from your childhood?). It was so relaxing to hang out with people I love and focus on a non computer related task. It’s just a silly little art project, and yet this brought me so much joy.

If spending time on a child like project and visiting with friendly faces sounds like a good way to spend a Saturday, I invite you to join us!

Solstice Meditation December 18th

Tuesday December 21st is the Winter Solstice, the shortest day (and longest night) of the year.

Celebrate this time with us! Watch the recording of our live solstice meditation from Saturday December 18th.

Our December meditation theme is slowing down, and listening to your intuition. At the end of all of our fitness classes we do a 5 minute guided meditation where sit quietly and ask our internal guide “what do I need right now?”.

If the idea of listening to your intuition seems daunting, no worries, you can strengthen your listening skills just as you would strengthen your biceps, by repetitive practice. Join us for one of our live zoom classes, and do this short meditation with us, or tune in to our 30 minute session on Saturday the 18th.

Why celebrate the solstice?

For ancient cultures, the winter solstice was seen as a time of rebirth, or new beginning, often celebrated with festivals and rituals.

You’ve most likely heard of the German yule log. Did you know about these other mid winter traditions?

Iranians gather at the house of the oldest relative to eat, drink and read poetry, feasting on nuts, pomegranates and watermelon.

In Japan the custom is to soak in a hot yuzu, or citrus fruit bath. This is thought to boost your immune system, so that you will not catch a cold during the winter.

I love rituals that encourage sharing good food with friends and family, and relaxing.

If slowing down sounds good to you right now, listen to our meditation from Saturday December 18th as we sit and contemplate this special time of year.
