HAPPY FEBRUARY!

We jumped right into February with the first weekend being full of fun! On Saturday, we attended Daring Adventures 2nd Annual Can Do! FEST where there were many vendors offering lots of choices to get you out and staying active!

Sunday, we were at Top Golf in Gilbert for our Super Bowl Social activity. Whether you were cheering on the 49ers or the Chiefs, we think everyone can agree what a fabulous day it was getting to spend time in our private room socializing with great friends.

Here are just a few of the photos from the weekend. Additional photos can always be viewed on the We're Moving Forward Facebook page.

Alive Fit

NEW Adaptive Dance And Movement Class

Vickie Aigner presents her Alive, Fit & Free Adaptive Dance and Movement class at Naam Arizona

At Alive, Fit & Free, we are passionate about bringing wellness to every person and we specialize in adapting fitness and health classes to fit your abilities.
We believe health and wellness are the cornerstones of a high quality of life. Everyone deserves a high quality of life, regardless of their ability. We created Alive, Fit & Free to make this a reality.
FOR EVERY ABILITY.

Alive, Fit & Free was born out of a passion to bring a higher quality of life to clients with unique abilities who have not been catered to by the traditional health and wellness market.

What is Adaptive Dance and Movement?
Adaptive dance and movement is a unique system of Naam Yoga & Dance Movement that is adaptable to all levels and abilities, whether clients are confined to a chair or have the freedom to use their whole bodies.

It energizes emotionally, mentally, energetically and physically from the inside out with its unique energy and movement patterns.

This, in turn, relieves stress, depression and anxiety, builds new neuro-pathways in the brain, helps to develop neuroplasticity, increases balance and coordination, enhances flexibility, opens up our energetic pathways, increases cardio vascular output, and stimulates muscular strength and endurance – all while having fun and allowing a safe space for all to open wide and explore their inner beings.

Every 2nd & 4th Wednesday

2/12
