  • What are the Blue Zones?

    Dan Buettner, Blue Zones founder, identified the five original blue zones–the places in the world with the healthiest, longest-living populations, including Okinawa, Japan; Sardinia, Italy; Nicoya, Costa Rica; Ikaria, Greece; and Loma Linda, California.

    What were the findings?

    After analysing these communities, Dan created the Power 9, a set of principles common to all.

     

    1. Move Naturally - At Arlindo's Way, all our movement programs are based on functional, natural movements, which include dance and ground based movements.

    2. Purpose - We support our clients to discover a strong purpose in life, whether that be through our Blue Zones project, or other.

    3. Downshift - We help you reduce stress and experience more peace through movement and breathing.

    4. 80% Rule - We teach you how to eat less and live longer.

    5. Plant Slant - We coach you on how to eat more plants and still love your food!

    6. Wine @ 5 - It's OK to enjoy 1 or 2 glasses of wine per day, but no more, and go for organic.

    7. Belong - We provide a strong community with regular social events to make everyone feel they belong.

    8. Loved Ones First - Whether that's your family or your close friends, keep them close.

    9. Right Tribe - Surrounding yourself with the right tribe is critical when it comes to maintaining healthy behaviours. If you have a group of friends whose only social activity is drinking, then that is likely to become your main form of socialising. But if your friends are hikers, life could look very different!

    What are we doing at Empowered Ageing?

    We use the principles of the Blue Zones to help our clients live long, healthy lives.

    Some current initiatives include meeting to discuss how we can apply the principles to our lives; a spiritual book club; walking groups; and communal cooking from the Blue Zones recipe books.

    Any client is eligible to join our Blue Zone community, from those who attend a workshop, to our health coaching clients, to those whoe do the Vital Flow classes, or movement coaching.
