On the second day of the shoot Erwan found this giant log in the woods, which he quickly incorporated into a workout He did all kinds of things from turkish get ups to running through the trees with the log, push ups, etc. It was CRAZY!
Later that weekend I attend one of Erwan's MovNat workshops. It was an amazing and eye opening experience. I learned so much about natural movement and balance in the first 3 hours - and I was ridiculously sore the next day!

The November issue of Elle Magazine came in the mail last week. It's a guilty pleasure of mine - Elle & Wired are two of my favorite magazines. One of the articles this month: Women in Hollywood - The Power List. Titles like this usually make me want to gag, but I found a fascinating section on Women behind the scenes of huge power house production companies like Warner Brothers, Universal Pictures, and DreamWorks. Perhaps it shouldn't surprise me that there are powerful women involved in these colossal mediums, but it did. I found it fascinating!
THE MOVIE EXECUTIVES
Elizabeth Gabler, president, Fox 2000 Pictures
She may be low-key, but her studio isn’t—not after The Devil Wears Prada and Marley and Me.
Donna Langley, president, Universal pictures
Even during a recent maternity leave, this executive, responsible for Mamma Mia!, Knocked Up, and The Mummy, continued to be touted as the next-in-line studio topper.
Amy Pascal, cochairman, Sony Pictures
The leader of a dwindling pack of female executives heading movie studios, she’s so dug-in, she’s planning Spider-Man VI.
Mary Parent, office of CEO, chairman, Worldwide Motion Picture Group, MGM
For holding that struggling studio slate together (thanks, Valkyrie!) with chicken wire
Keri Putnam, president of production, Miramax Films
She’s the reason that Miramax Films doesn’t make schlock in the wake of the Weinstein brothers’ departure. The proof? Oscar-favored No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood.
Stacey Snider, CEO, Dreamworks Studios
As Stephen Spielberg’s right hand, she’s had a tough year because of the credit crisis. But now, with the company on solid financial footing, she’ll return to powerhouse status.
Nancy Utley, copresident, Fox Searchlight Pictures
This newly named cohead of the studio has a daunting task ahead of her: to continue Fox Searchlight’s amazing run of Oscar nominations and wins (Slumdog Millionaire, Little Miss Sunshine, Juno).
