Inner Strength, Outer Strength

The basis of Inner Strength – Outer Strength focuses on two core areas:


Outer Strength (Fitness, Health, Vitality)


Keeping ourselves physically strong is of utmost importance. Our outer strength is developed by building our physical vitality through exercise, movement and healthy nutrition. If there is one thing we have learned from the pandemic, it is the importance of maintaining our overall physical health and immunity.


Inner Strength (Mindfulness, Resilience, Character)


During a stressful time of great change, it is important to incorporate stillness into our lives to allow the mind to process new information and reflect on appropriate strategies to manage difficulties. Inner Strength is developed by taking time for silence, contemplation and mindfulness.
