I heard from a friend that Athleta will accept gently used clothing and
I was wondering how I could help with this. I generally donate to other
charitable sites but feel that a lot of time the clothes I donate are
picked over by the workers before be...
Today, I had the privilege of speaking at Athleta's annual AthletaQuest
event! The last time I taught at one of these, I was pregnant with my
first son, so it felt very circle being there pregnant with number two.
Here's a little sneak peak of the am...
As a physical therapist, I get this question all the time. Sometimes,
everything seems like it hurts. Other times, you can't seem to get a
deep enough tissue massage! So, how can you differentiate? And does PAIN

Hi Athletawell family! So a week ago I got rear ended while at a stop
exiting the freeway... thankfully, me and my car are okay. But it was

care of a few things that help me to feel good, like movement, taking my
herbs or journaling, I start to feel more balanced and prepared to
tackle the rest of my day! It's also wh...
There's a lot of new talk around this in the PT world. Muscle tension
is, in large part, related to stress levels! So, jamming a ball or other
tool in a knot it may not always be the best long-term solution. In my
opinion, I love to pair these tools ...
Is anyone else having a tough time transitioning back to "normal" life
after the past year? I love seeing the world opening back up…but with
that comes all the comparisons that used to cause me so much anxiety. Of
