health and fitness

    Ladder is a wellness platform that matches people with the right coach for them based on their goals, experience level and personality. Coaches create and share personalized workouts with their clients through our platform and can chat through the platform. We seek to help people build new habits to create lasting change and believe that health is the result of many small decisions made over time.

    On Saturday, October 19th, we’re hosting a party to celebrate the opening of HQ, our official Ladder office and gym. We’ll be joined by friends, family, investors and some new Austin-ite faces!

      We know that improving health in our communities requires collaborative work with partners outside of our organizations, disciplines, silos, sectors, and comfort zones. Cross-sector work is key to preventing chronic disease, addressing social determinants of health, improving health equity, and receiving the greatest value from our health dollars. We also know that cross-sector collaboration can be difficult. But we believe Texas is up to the challenge. At this year’s Healthier Texas Summit, we will hear stories and enter into conversations not only about our collaboration successes, but also about where it gets hard, and how challenges can be resolved, so we can more fully unite for a Healthier Texas.

                      It’s not only the mind that needs to grieve, it’s the body as well. Yoga integrates body, mind, and spirit. Grief, our natural response to loss, creates tension not only in the mind, but in the nervous system and the muscles that hold us. This gentle, restorative, and trauma-informed yoga class offers the space for letting go of tension in the body, and in turn, creating greater ease within the mind. Feel a sense of community without having to speak a word, feel physically and emotionally supported, gain a sense of control, peace and acceptance in the aftermath of loss. No prior yoga experience is necessary to participate in this group. We will be using restorative yoga which emphasizes on being mindful and present in the moment rather than technique.
