Movement Genius will be revealing launch dates and more information on its Instagram, which you can follow here. We are all in this together. Knowing that, most of the cast joined forces last spring for a special TikTok collaboration that saw everyone get back into the characters for a good cause. The result was a viral video, tons of smiles, and a big chunk of change raised for No Kid Hungry at the height of the pandemic. In the meantime, Alyson has created numerous affirmation tracks to talk you through whatever you may need in this moment, which you can find here.

We also were thinking, ‘How could we turn this into something that’s impact oriented, as well?’” Alyson explained in an EXCLUSIVE interview with HollywoodLife.com.

Surprise! I have the frog hat, this is going to have to happen,’” she laughed. The multi-hyphenate who has grown into a remarkable young woman since her Cheaper By The Dozen days spoke to HL as she prepares to launch a wellness platform, Movement Genius, that will intersect inclusivity and freedom for people to explore their personal wellness, sexuality and mental health through movement. Still, the 2003 film has a beautiful piece of nostalgia for everyone who fell in love with the Bakers and their big family unit. Recall in the video, Alyson donned her iconic green frog hat that her troublemaker character Sarah rocked throughout the film. It’s really, ‘How can we meet you where you are?’ No equipment needed, no high price tag, no barrier to entry — your natural ability, your natural language and movement, your mood, your energy level — bring it all and allow movement to help you process release and express whatever you might need in that moment.”
She added, “I sure hope that this empowers people the way we have witnessed it empowering our early users and testers and community members. Exclusive Interview
