VIVE BODY BASICS: Sun  Sun exposure is important to encourage the body’s production of Vitamin D. Based on the latest research, we recommend 15 to 30 minutes of midday sun exposure (15 minutes for those with lighter skin, 30 minutes for those with darker skin) or 2,000 IU vitamin D3 that is derived from plant or animal sources.

VIVE BODY BASICS: Supplements  Based on research, we take 300mg of micro-algae based DHA daily, along with B12 and 2000 IU Vitamin D3. For best absorption take B12 (at least 2,500 mcg cyanocobalamin once each week, ideally as a chewable, sublingual, or liquid supplement) on an empty stomach and take your Vitamin D with your biggest meal of the day.

VIVE BODY BASICS: Walk  5,000 to 10,000 steps five or six times a week. Every step nourishes you mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically. Every step is a strengthening and stretching exercise. The more steps you take, the more you nourish your body. 5,000 to 10,000 steps a day translates to 30 minutes to an hour of full body exercise. It does not matter when or where you get your steps in, as long as you’re stepping.

VIVE BODY BASICS: VIVE Workout

Learn the VIVE workout routine to correct strengthen, stretch and realign the body. Misalignment, incorrect posture, shallow breathing and a shortened gait motion have negative impacts on your health. Unfortunately, most of us have not walked, stood or sat correctly for most of our lives. This has led to a physical breakdown in the feet, ankles, knees, hips, groin, glutes, low back, shoulders and neck.

VIVE Workout will help to stop and correct damaging patterns of movement that prohibit the body from sitting, standing, walking and moving as it was designed. This is a complete exercise program built to strengthen and stretch glutes, hip flexors, core and muscles in the feet, legs, back, chest, shoulders and neck.

VIVE Workout is based on the VIVE 5 Exercises:

Breathing: We use the deep breathing that we are practicing in VIVE Spirit in our workout. Every move we make is made on an inhale and exhale to develop a rhythm and flow to strengthen the core and low back and to keep the body aligned correctly for correct movement.

Listening: We listen to our bodies. Listening is a posture, which reminds us of maintaining good posture to not only listen to our bodies but to do each exercise correctly and avoid pain/injury.

Asking: Am I aligned? Alignment makes sense. Correct alignment enables and empowers the body to move correctly.

Looking: Are you looking at yourself? This is not a competition. This is about you doing the best you can do, creating your own rhythm and flow and nourishing your own body.

Moving: We are ready to move on a breath, when we are in good posture position, aligned correctly, and focusing on our own bodies.
