This skin firming serum is inspired by nature and the wonders of Chinese medicine, containing ginger, spice and all-things-nice. That’s ginger, ginseng and ruscus root if you want to get specific. It’s also a face firming serum that’s enriched with soya oil, helping skin feel smoother and firmer and more refined. instantly ready for the Firming & Shaping Cream. This feels blissfully moisturising without being too heavy – I should mention that everything has a spicy scent note that’s gingery but just the right amount. Roots of Strength (TM)

Strong suit"what one is good at" (1865) is an image from card-playing; to be strong in a certain suit of cards, "holding commanding or a large number of" its cards, is by 1862. It is reconstructed to be from Proto-Germanic *strangaz (source also of Old Norse strangr"strong," Dutch streng"strict, rigorous," Old High German strang"strong, bold, hard," German streng"strict, rigorous"). This is possibly from a PIE *strenk-"tight, narrow" (see string (n.)). Recently I’ve begun reading an excellent book which delves into the question from a slightly different angle: how do we define fitness? Author Edward Yu answers the question in depth. He looks at how the West has defined health, fitness, beauty, and the human body over a period of centuries, to see how we’ve arrived at the point where for many these are synonymous. As a martial artist, runner, and Feldenkrais practitioner, he asks, what are we fit for? Chinese and Japanese martial arts distinguish between internal and external practice. The internal arts utilize internal strength as a basis from which to move. Often practitioners of these arts refer to flowing energy and to the practice of grounding. Within the Feldenkrais Method® of Somatic Education there are clear principles, both biological and in physics, that lead us into a unique perspective on internal strength. Middle English strong, from Old English strang, of living things, body parts, "physically powerful;" of persons, "firm, bold, brave; constant, resolute; having authority, able to enforce one's will;" of medicines, poisons, "powerful in effect;" of winds, etc., "violent, forceful, severe," of wine, "having high alcohol content." The general sense is "possessing or imparting force or energy; intense or intensified in degree."

Intro to Feldenkrais®

The grammatical sense, in reference to noun case distinctions and verb inflections, is attested by 1841, translating German stark, which was used in a grammatical sense by Jakob Grimm (the notion of "strong" and "weak" better fits German inflections). First string , second string , etc. in athletics (1863) is said to be from archers carrying a spare bowstring in the event the other broke. The figure of have two strings to one's bow"have alternative resources" is in English by 1540s. UPDATE: I gave this sneaky peek of the new Roots of Strength range for older skin last year, but wanted to delve a bit deeper now that it’s actually in stores – Read more about The Body Shop Roots of Strength skincare here.

The workshop is sponsored by Fugitive Fitness. Fugitive Freedom “is about Freedom! The freedom to go where you want to go, do what you want to do, and be who you want to be. It’s about Independence, gained as you progress on that journey and become ever more self-reliant.” Join us for this two-day workshop to investigate how to utilize these principles to connect with your own internal strength and improve your own functional self-organization. In other words, if I don’t improve my relationship to the ground, I’ll strengthen habits of self-use which don’t serve me and might actually harm me—which is how I sprained my ankle playing squash. (By the way, I then got up and finished the game: don’t do that!) The Firming Shaping Essence is the first step in the regime and I apply it after cleansing my face. It feels like water with a light herbal scent. The first thing I noticed after applying the essence was the slight tingling sensation. In fact, that is the case with all the products in the range. The sensation does not last long. During the day, I only apply this essence and it keeps my skin moisturized for a long time. At night, I follow it up with the rest of the products. This spicy little number is part of our three-step routine to get you looking and feeling your best, and it goes something like this: after cleansing, activate your skin with our Roots of Strength™ Firming Shaping Essence Lotion, now give it a boost with this serum and finish off with our Roots of Strength™ Firming Shaping Day Cream. Used daily, this dream team will help you discover skin that feels firmer, plumper, denser, as if reshaped. Maybe it’s magic after all?

Intro to the Feldenkrais Method®

The sense gradually restricted by early Middle English to lines that are smaller than a rope. The meaning "a number of objects arranged in a file or on a string" is recorded by late 15c.; of successes, disasters, etc., "continuous series or succession," by 1710.

Jeff Haller, PhD, GCFP studied directly with Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais, founder of the Feldenkrais Method. Jeff has led trainings and taught workshops on four continents. His additional study includes years of basketball, Aikido and meditation. Jeff has a doctorate in psychology. He’s based in Seattle, WA. Jeff is launching a revolutionary new training for Feldenkrais practitioners in Spring 2018: enrollment is open. As a noun, "one who is physically strong" (c. 1300), also collective (as in only the strong can survive, attested by 1857). The Firming Shaping Serum is the next step and it is white in color and has a gel-like consistency. Even this gives a slight tingling sensation but I like that it feels weightless and absorbs into the skin very fast.


Formerly with comparative and superlative strenger, strengest (compare old/elder/eldest). It was used by late 12c. in reference to feelings, emotions; also of objects, castles, etc., "sturdy, firmly fixed or constituted." By 1690s of mental impressions or memories. Of odors from c. 1200. By 1690s in reference to emphatic language. In Middle English, in addition to offensive odors, it was used of unfortunate events, bad news, harsh laws, bad roads, and bad dreams. From 1610s as "having or consisting of a large number." Written with a number, "to the extent of" ( thousands strong) it is by 1580s. He writes: “ If I am considered fit enough to be on a magazine cover, does that also make me fit for the rest of life, which occurs outside of the confines of 8 1/2 x 11 inches? Should Albert Einstein, who probably never performed a single push-up, be deemed unfit?” Read the prologue to his book, The Mass Psychology of Fittism: Fitness, Evolution, and the First Two Laws of Thermodynamics, here.
