Mindful Exercise

A Bridge Between Yoga and Exercise

Mindful Exercise is a practice, not a program. The difference is that a practice is a process, which has its own natural unfolding that cannot be manipulated.

Mindful Exercise offers a workout and a “work-in” experience, which cultivates moment-to-moment awareness through the breath and movement. Mindful Exercise asks the reader to pay attention to the experience of exercise as it is each day, without the need to compare. Mindful Exercise presents seven spiritual practices, one for each day of the week, with illustrations of their corresponding exercise trios. A specific format for this twenty-minute practice is also presented, and a CD is enclosed that describes how to execute each exercise.

Fun Fact: Cheryl was personal trainer to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Caroline Kennedy.

An Excerpt from Mindful Exercise

Performing vs. Being

In the past, you have probably focused your workouts on a particular set of fitness goals, motivated primarily by your desire to change the physical appearance of your body—sometimes even loathing that appearance. You were expected to do more each workout, because the belief was that more is better. Focusing solely on the physical aspects of your being, you have either written or followed exercise programs that prescribed frequency, intensity, duration, mode of exercise, and rate of progression. Behavior has been measured with words like adherence, compliance, and persistence. It seems that we have mastered the workout aspect of exercise, but we haven’t figured out how to balance it with the working aspect. Mindful exercise provides an opportunity to move out of performance and into a place of being in your body. Weaving mindfulness and spiritual practices into the exercise experience, you move from a program to a practice. And within this practice, you need time for your own individual gifts to flow forth. This is only possible when you are in a place of “non-doing.”

Throughout her career Cheryl has been interviewed as a fitness expert in the following publications:
