HIGH DESERT MUSEUM OPENS NEW EXHIBIT The High Desert Museum presents an original exhibit, “Dam It! Beavers and Us,” opening Saturday, January 30, 2021. The exhibition explores beaver history and the interrelationship of people, beavers and the landscape. The dams built by these “ecosystem engineers” slow streamflow, raise the water table and reduce downstream flooding and erosion. Aside from humans, no other animal exerts such a far-reaching impact on the landscape. “This exhibit takes a close look at a species

WHAT TO DO WHEN EXERCISE BECOMES UNBEARABLE DURING PREGNANCY In addition to avoiding caffeine, taking folic acid, and maintaining a healthy diet, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommends exercise due to the many benefits it provides both the mom and the developing fetus. Once the baby is born, the recommendations to exercise remain important. But for some, staying active becomes difficult or even impossible due to pain. During pregnancy, the body changes to support a growing fetus. Hormones cause the ligaments that support the joints to become more lax, which increases the importance of strength and stability. During pregnancy, common complaints include sacroiliac (SI) joint dysfunction, symphysis pubis dysfunction, sciatic area pain, round ligament pain, low back or hip pain, diastasis recti, and leaking. The great news is that all of these issues can be addressed through physical therapy. Emily Bliss is a physical therapist at the NWX location of Step & Spine Physical Therapy. When she’s not in the clinic, she’s chasing around two young children and helping both pregnant and postpartum women stay active through her Instagram page, mumsontherunusa. Yeah, she understands physical therapy, but she’s also been on the other side of the fence — struggling to remain active despite experiencing intense pain. At 18 weeks pregnant, Emily ran a marathon. Would she do that again while pregnant? Probably not. “Running hurt worse in the middle of my pregnancy but felt better toward the end,” said Emily. Despite round ligament and SI joint pain, Emily continued running and focused on glute strengthening and prenatal massage. Her second pregnancy was more difficult. While she knew to focus on maintaining strength throughout her

exercise regimen, she was chasing around a toddler and had a diastasis recti. This time, she focused on strengthening her core muscles through functional exercises that challenged the muscle groups but didn’t overstress them. “People often get afraid of exercise while pregnant. It can seem intimidating, but it is not only an important part of a healthy pregnancy but also often an important part of a women’s identity,” said Emily. “If you stop exercising, you lose strength, which is harder to regain postpartum because your fitness level has decreased.” In the clinic, Emily helps her patients overcome their pain through a variety of strengthening exercises. Often these include glute and hip strengthening exercises and functional core strengthening. Physical therapists like Emily are trained to identify the cause of the pain and then troubleshoot the types of fitness that will be most appropriate and comfortable to the patient, while also helping safely modify your favorite forms of physical activity. “Getting a professional recommendation of customized activities for a safe exercise program takes a lot of stress off the mom,” Emily adds. As the pregnancy continues, the needs of the mom will change. Therefore, the program should adapt accordingly. She recommends that women replace high impact activities with low ones as needed. If running is causing pain, you swim. Her advice is to listen to your body and always talk with your OB provider before starting an exercise program. “A lot of issues that arise during pregnancy will go away after birth, but some, like leaking, for example, are more likely to become persistent postpartum unless addressed,” said Emily. “Be kind to yourself and accept that your body is going to be different while pregnant. Have fun with it and keep moving!”

OPEN HOUSE

SERENE SA N C T UA RY MOVING INTO A NEW YEAR ADJUSTS OUR CALENDAR, AND FOR MANY IT BRINGS THE DESIRE TO RESET SPACE — BOTH PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY. Sara Toujier, founder of Toujier Designs, created a meditation space that’s a sanctuary of light and a respite from the challenges of the outside world. A meditation or yoga practice may be born, or improved, with surroundings and thoughtful details that facilitate breathing. Whether a space is designed from inception, an underutilized room in your home is re-envisioned, or a small nook in a corner of your home is reclaimed, the simple action of pulling out a soft cushion can help us exhale after the challenges of the past year.

Regardless of size, a meditation space can emulate a favorite studio or travel locale in your home. Start with soft colors to soothe and create a peaceful environment for connection to mind and body. Windows bring in natural light as an invitation to each day and a built-in fireplace adds additional warmth.

GUARDIAN O F H E A LT H EXPERT ADVICE FOR A HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR FROM THE FOUNDER OF HOMESTEAD FAMILY MEDICINE

WITH 2020 BEHIND US, IT’S TIME TO LOOK FORWARD TO A MUCH HEALTHIER AND HAPPIER 2021. In order to do this, it’s imperative that we take care of our bodies and minds with the most up-todate medical care, healthy diet, and active lifestyle. Dr. Laura Pennavaria, a board-certified M.D. in Family Medicine, and Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians, founded Homestead Family Medicine in October 2019. A physician for 20 years, she states that her philosophy of care is that it is the patient’s body, and the patient’s life, and she is there as a shepherd and guardian of their health—a consultant with the medical knowledge to assist them with the challenges they face. Here, she offers advice on how to live our best lives this year and for many years to come. PERTAINING TO DIET, WHAT SHOULD PEOPLE FOCUS ON TO KEEP THEIR BODIES HEALTHY FROM THE INSIDE OUT?

Bend Lifestyle | January 2021


A FANTASTIC WAY TO INCORPORATE MORE VEGETABLES ACORN SQUASH

AND FRUIT INTO YOUR DAILY MEALS IS MAKING COLORFUL AND FLAVORFUL HEALTHY FOOD BOWLS. They are packed with nutrients and yet do not sacrifice flavor as a perfect way to start the new year right. Preparing a healthy bowl is as simple as picking a type of whole grains as a base (brown rice, quinoa, barley), vegetables of your choice, protein, your favorite dressing and finishing it with something crunchy like almonds or pepitas. Voilá, you have a balanced, healthy meal. I recommend using raw tahini, which is a great ingredient to keep handy for quick and delicious dressings. This dijon mustard and tahini recipe has become a staple for my family, among a few other tahini-based dressings. This bowl is a fun way to use acorn squash, which when thinly sliced and roasted adds a sweet nuttiness and satisfying crunch.

HOMETOWN HERO FROM THE SKI TRAIL TO THE CLASSROOM, MARY WELLINGTON FOCUSES ON THE MIND AND BODY

SKI

SMARTS

AS THE COLD WINTER’S BREEZE SWEEPS THE LIGHT SNOW ACROSS HER FACE, MARY WELLINGTON DOESN’T SEEM TO NOTICE. Standing near the starting line at Silver Star, British Columbia, she focuses her thoughts on the 10 kilometers of nordic skiing between her and the finish line. A dozen of her fellow racers join Wellington in completing their last-minute mind and body rituals. The skiers shake out their muscles, tap the snow off their skis, and await the starter’s gun signifying the mass release to the freshly groomed trails. A long way from the county parks and local golf courses she grew up skiing in Stillwater, Minnesota, as well as her current NW Bend home where she lives with her husband and daughter, Wellington is ARTICLE GREGG MORRIS PHOTOGRAPHY SUZETTE HIBBLE

no stranger to nordic ski racing. Now a 25-year resident of Bend and a proud member of the XC Oregon Nordic Ski Team, she has spent thousands of hours honing her mental and physical game for competition. Wellington started as a junior racer in the Midwest, then became a scholarship nordic skier and runner at Northern Michigan University, and now she competes as an agegroup competitor based out of the trails at Mount Bachelor and the sno-parks dotting Central Oregon. Back home in Bend, Wellington serves as a Spanish teacher at Pacific Crest Middle School and a nordic ski coach for the Mt. Bachelor Sports Education Foundation (MBSEF). Her background in keeping mentally and physically fit has allowed her to weather the current rough conditions of teaching and coaching CONTINUED >

keep a growth mindset,” explains Wellington. “The teachers try to focus on what’s important and don’t want to overwhelm the students.” Wellington has been teaching middle school Spanish for over two decades and currently navigates her online classrooms of between 30 to 40 students by trying to translate what she used do in person into what she now does on the computer. At the Mt. Bachelor Nordic Ski Center, Wellington gears her lessons towards the students having fun first and foremost. “I want the kids to enjoy their time with me so they’ll come back,” says Wellington. “So, we focus on playing games that teach the skills and techniques,” she says. In her free time, Wellington can be found on the trails practicing what she preaches. During the winter, when the snow is good, she skis four days a week. If not, Wellington stays in town to cycle, run, or hit the gym. In addition to competing in nordic races throughout
