Change: Transition at Kaiser Permanente


Maria Lauren, (aka) Maria E. Riccio, Lifestyle Educator

Change and Stretch!

Sometimes we need to get out of a rut; we need a diversion to feel alive. Change! Sometimes it comes and we lose our bearings; we feel out of control. One thing is certain, change will come whether we ask for it or not.

Presently, I am in transition at work as a Lifestyle Educator. Plans are being made for me to move from Kaiser Permanente’s Health Education Department at Woodland Hills to a bigger facility at Panorama City. I will still be teaching fitness classes but will miss some of my faithful patients that I have been instructing, within my five years of service. I am so proud of them for making the healthy choice to put exercise into their lives. It was my pleasure to encourage and educate my exercise participants to get stronger, more flexible and feel better about themselves while working with a variety of ages and physical capabilities in Yoga, Tai-Chi, Pilates and Dance Exercise classes. We had fun!

Change is scary or it can be an adventure. It can be a time to reinvent, to meet new people and to look at things in a different light. A change of scenery is good but right now, we wait and have patience … Yikes, I’m feeling anxious!!!

This is my first blog post for “Your Powerful Life.” My posts are about LIFE: Living, Inspiration, Fitness, Entertainment…. I pray that God’s blessings will fill your life with direction, wisdom, love, joy and peace. I also wish this for myself. Blessings are abundant!

On this Blog, I will keep you posted about my fitness classes and about my performances as an entertainer. This is also a place where I’ll be sharing tips for healthy living and ideas that are inspirational; a place where I can put the spotlight on the positive and that is powerful.

I look forward to hearing from you,
