Welcome to the October, 2022 Harmony Way Newsletter!
Are you "team" pumpkin spice, apple spice or both? I personally enjoy both and all things Autumnal.
October is a fabulous time for clearing out the old, connecting with our ancestors and going within to determine our next steps for any current goals.
It's also a perfect time to get outside, with the cooler temperatures, gorgeous leaves and so many fun activities at this time of year. Wishing you a healthy, enjoyable October and rest of your fall season!

Core strength is an integral part of back/spine health and longevity. Any fitness instructor or personal trainer will tell you how important this area is. The core is also much more than simply the muscles at your center. They actually wrap around to the spine and assist with many functions and movements of the body. There are some great exercises in this article to strengthen the core muscles.
*Always check in with your medical health provider for advice and guidance before starting a new workout program, being mindful of any existing conditions or injuries that you have, discussing these with a qualified medical professional prior to trying any workout.
