Merlin Tuttle, noted bat biologist and conservationist, has spent most of the summer traveling to faraway places to do research, photography and give lectures.
His wife Paula accompanies him and serves as project assistant and blogger, keeping track of all their adventures on his website, www.merlintuttle.com/ .
In between trips to Bulgaria and Borneo, they have kept up their exercise routines vigorously– despite the drastic time changes! The key? Make sure to go outside when the sun comes up in the morning, and in the evening to experience dusk.
It has been a busy summer here at the studio. People are traveling to wonderful places and staying fit when they are home.
I have the delightful pleasure of training three generations of one family: Mary, Mindy, Emma and Olivia.
Mary, the matriarch, who in her 80’s, does yoga and trains with me weekly along with her home workout and stretching routines. She is traveling to Scandinavia this summer. Go Mary – you know how to stay young!
Mary’s daughter Mindy is the person responsible for introducing me to yoga. Mindy has lost over 30 lbs, kept them off and gained a toned, lean body with her regular sessions and adherence to our meal tracking program.
Mindy’s own daughters, Emma and Olivia, have taken a page from the family book and study ballroom dancing. Their sessions here are fun as we explore ways to improve their core strength for dance and maintain symmetry as some dances can be one-sided in nature.
