    Hi everyone!  To help kick your weekend off on a healthy note I’m sharing a few yoga, nutrition and fitness related articles from around the web. I, and my knees, like this low-impact alternative to the typical high-impact plyometric workout.  These moves are great for developing lean, toned muscle. Can’t wait to make this healthy salad!  I think the avocado […]

      Improve your practice with bandhas-do you know what bandhas are, where they are located and why they are used by yogis? I didn’t either until years into my yoga practice.

    It was at the end of my first yoga class that I first heard a group simultaneously say “namaste”.  I loved the class but I wasn’t sure how I felt about the namaste part.  What did it mean and why was it said in unison? The next few classes I opted to just do the little bow at the end of class.  It wasn’t […]

      In response to my encouraging people to try yoga I often hear, ‘but I’m not flexible’.  It seems to be a common misconception that one must be flexible in order to do yoga.  This couldn’t be further from the truth.  In fact, this is precisely one of the reasons why we should do yoga. Whether we are active or sedentary our muscles have a […]
