Hi, I'm Myriam.
I am deeply fascinated by the intersection of neuroscience and the body, especially in the context of aging vibrantly. The profound connection between the cross-pattern of movement—walking, running, and hiking—and brain health fascinates me, highlighting our intrinsic need for movement.

The brain's predictive model often interprets pain as a precaution, emphasizing the importance of gradual progression and patience in building a foundation. View the brain as a protective Gatekeeper, requiring trust for optimal performance, and recognize our physical bodies as external reflections of internal well-being.
Mindset is emphasized as a critical filter shaping our perception of the world and ourselves, prompting the need for a thoughtful conversation before delving into transformative change. The importance of avoiding regret in later years is underscored, with a call for reflection focused on forward-looking opportunities, coupled with an understanding of how brain function influences habits and well-being.
Real food provides essential nutrients for cellular nourishment and immune support without overburdening our systems. Macronutrients (carbs, proteins, fats) offer necessary calories from sources like whole grains and well-sourced proteins, while micronutrients act as vital "spark plugs" for optimal energy, metabolism, and overall well-being in smaller quantities.
"Miriam is just awesome. I took her classes, running and pilates years ago. But now many years later and a few states away I still remember the fundamentals she taught me to stay strong and safe. Especially as I prepare for another 10k this weekend. Thank you Miriam!!"
