Loving Your Age: Forming Heart and Soul Based Connections through Exercise Practices
Hear Kate talk about some of the ways we can bring our brains, minds, and hearts along when we exercise. She will discuss how concepts such as neuroplasticity, biophilia, and functional exercise are valuable for healthy aging, and will link these ideas to social connections and a healthy planet. Kate will also share how she incorporates her young children in her business by emphasizing the importance of service to others.
