Flower Power

I spend a lot of time researching how to live life well, it’s kind of my full time life job. Much of the research is in the form of conducting experiments in my lab, the Ritu Life Lab where the sample size is small (N=1) but offers just the right results to form impactful conclusions that will improve my personal well being. All that to say, I enjoy trying out new things – books, devices, apps, props, classes, courses, ideas, products, recipes, etcetera, etcetera. This year I’ve decided to start sharing some of my experiments and findings here on myContinue Reading >>

10 things I learned from David Moreno

I had the opportunity to spend time and learn from expert international yoga teacher and cyclist David Moreno. David was teaching a workshop titled “Yoga for Cyclists”, my two loves taught together, sign me up!  You might be wondering how the two even go together; yoga belongs on the mat and cycling on the Tour de France.

Awareness and education is as important now as it was in the 90‘s. Tomorrow I’ll be riding out of the cow palace with thousands of others riders and roadies toContinue Reading >>

Tour de Cure- Stop Diabetes

For those that know me, or follow me, know that I heart wine – red wine- yummy, complex, big, beautiful wine (no I’m not drinking while I write this). Point being, living in Northern California just a 50 miles from Wine Country is a wine drinkers dream, lucky for me I get to live this dream. I can hop in my car and within an hour be at one of my favorite wineries enjoying a tasting. This Sunday I traded in my sundress for spandex and headed to wine country while the moon was still out to experience Napa Valley fromContinue Reading >>
