02:25 exercise yes correct. Now, I want rewind you said breath,
02:29 so it really helps us to breathe.
02:30 Yes absolutely. And awareness to have,
02:33 people are really; don't really know how to breath
02:35 properly. That's right.
02:36 So as some of you actually teach him how to have this
02:39 and it's awesome exercise so. You have a range of
02:42 clientele from how old? Well we start and we were

02:59 studio you have and the equipment you are having.
03:01 What, what's the name of this piece of equipment?
03:03 This piece of equipment is called the reformer
03:05 and it's the most Universal piece of equipment
03:07 that we have, its spring loaded, the springs can
03:10 provide resistance for the body to challenge you little
03:14 bit more or if you need assistance to get you
03:17 through a certain exercise. The springs actually offer us
03:20 assistance carrier really. See it's not like a weight
03:24 stag that work against you no. Just you get flex,
03:26 it can help you right. Okay now this huge
03:29 device here, what is this called? That is the
03:32 grand daddy; it is called the Cataract, Oh! It's been
03:35 there had in the Cataract okay right.
03:37 And this like it has so many different apparatus
03:40 attached to it. It has a lot of potential,
03:43 its helps clients, if we have clients who come out

04:27 to get to relax and just stretch all over nice and
04:30 stretching. Ploidy is just far different then Yoga
04:33 yes it is it is. And that can go into long conversation,
04:39 I know we had one before I know, I know,
04:41 but Ploidy is really is kind of blend of Eastern
04:43 and Western Philosophies, when it comes to fitness.
04:46 Okay, so but Ploidies has no Religious Connotations
04:51 right there like that no, it's just actually exercise it is.
04:54 It was actually form that created as a form of
04:56 modality help condition of body correct not no religious
04:59 no rituals or something going long with that,
05:01 no not at all. That is wonderful as I want.
05:03 So, Lisa, tell me about your personal ministry.
05:05 You have a beautiful studio, how do you use this
05:08 and why do you do it? You know it's wonderful
05:09 because I get to do a lot of. I primarily do one on one
05:12 training with client, so you develop a relationship
05:15 with that person and naturally they come
05:17 in to you sometimes and complaining about life or
05:20 complaint about issues and it just allows me the
05:23 opportunity to primarily listen to them and then just
05:26 little bit by example right and just you know maybe
05:29 dropping if you hints here and there.
05:31 And I'm just let them know the type of person
05:34 that I am and what my beliefs are and maybe
05:36 helping to lead them; lead them. So, they could
05:38 see the peace you have in your life right that the Lord
05:41 has given you right provided for you and you
05:45 away they could see wow there's something
05:47 attracting about lifestyle, right, in what she does
05:50 and how she takes care of her body, and that how
05:53 she is embarrassed for getting people to be healthy
05:55 and active, I love that, I love that yeah.

23:33 your body moving take advantage and get your heart
23:36 rate going and keep your body focus.
23:39 You're there to your exercise, but some socialization
23:42 for something else, for another time.
