by Kristin Williams, PT, DPT   This month we’re focusing on reintroducing LYT to our community and the global audience. If you read Lara’s blog about The Story of LYT a couple of weeks ago, you know what makes this method and its effects on the body so special. Today I want to share with you what it was about LYT that drew me to it initially and how I got to where I am today.   Back in 2010, I was working full-time in an outpatient orthopedic physical therapy clinic in Louisville, Kentucky, and treating patients with a variety of diagnoses. I started to get a whole host of referrals ..read more

The Story of LYT

Creating LYT was truly a calling, the ultimate ‘vocation’, when one feels deeply committed and motivated by a sense of purpose. From my early years of crawling and playing with my two triplet brothers, my background has been rooted in explorative movement and curiosity. With age, I continued to be drawn to the art of movement, from athletic sports to dancing, discovering the powerful impact of embodiment, where my sense of self was fortified with the experiences my body had in the world. When I suffered a serious ankle injury in high school, I lapsed into a mental and emotional stagnancy that ..read more

In a world filled with fitness trends and workout fads, one cornerstone remains true: strength training. Beyond the pursuit of beautiful muscles, strength training offers many benefits that go far beyond aesthetics. From improving overall health to enhancing daily functionality, strength training is an essential ingredient for daily life and longevity. Strength training (or resistance training) is a type of exercise that causes your muscles to resist an external force; this training intentionally loads the muscles and bones and can be performed using your own body weight, and/or outside weight ..read more

5 Simple Core Strengthening Exercises

by Kristin Williams
2w ago
In the LYT Method, we stand by the motto “More Core” for a reason. Whether you’re reaching for something, balancing, getting up off the floor, or simply standing in one place, the muscles of the core are working to keep your spine and pelvis stable. Unfortunately, many people are weak in their core. Most people think only of the abdominals when they hear the term “core”, but there’s a much broader picture to consider when wanting to strengthen this area. We need to consider not only the spine, but also the girdles of the shoulders, hips, and pelvis when incorporating core strengthening exercis ..read more

As I near the golden age of 50 in just a few short months, I find myself more and more interested in resistance training and its benefits. As a matter of fact I just joined a gym for the first time in well over a decade and the weight room is the main reason! I love that LYT has been focusing on the benefits of resistance training this month and one benefit that I’ve always heard about but never really understood the “why” behind was how it improves one’s metabolism. Knowing that menopause is right around the corner has me concerned about how my metabolism may be impacted. Full disclosure is t ..read more

When it comes to fitness and overall well-being, few elements are as crucial as understanding and harnessing the power of your core. Often misconstrued as just a set of abdominal muscles, the core is ultimately a complex network of muscles that provide stability, strength, and mobility to the entire body. From maintaining proper posture to excelling in athletic endeavors, the core plays a pivotal role in every movement we make. In our LYT classes, we often say the answer to joint aches, mobility concerns, low energy, and most everything else is MORE CORE. As the powerhouse of the body, the cor ..read more
