Ride On!

6 months of training, endless hours in silence, and umpteenth lessons later… it’s here… the AIDS ride… 7 days, 545 miles, in an effort to raise awareness for HIV/AIDS. A disease that is now being categorized as “chronic” with the rate of new infections and related deaths stabilizing and slowly declining, still appx 34 million people worldwide are living with HIV/AIDS, not to mention those that are not accounted for. 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 >>

Strike a pose… Cyclists!

As my fellow cyclists and I prepare to ride from SF to LA, yoga breaks (along with food, water, and bio breaks) are a must.   Why Yoga?   Incorporating basic yoga poses and principles like forward bends, twists, glute/hammy stretches, breath, and mindfulness can give you and your body a boost to go that extra mile. Yoga integrates breath and body to take “stretching” to a deeper level. Flexibility comes when strength meets ease and the catalyst for this is breath. Breath provides mini contraction/relaxation responses throughout the entire body allowing the muscles to lengthen, slowly and efficiently. RestorationContinue 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 >>

Part 2: I have cleansed… now what???

I had a number of people contact me about my spring cleansing process, and many more that thanked me for introducing them to the “Green Smoothie”, who knew that celery, kale, avocado, strawberries, and coconut could taste so good! For those of you just joining in on the site, welcome and here is a recap, I committed myself to a week-long cleanse of green smoothies and I had never felt better (since the last cleanse of course). The thought and feeling of fresh nutrients seeping into the bloodstream and taking the fast lane to my brain is indescribable. I wasContinue Reading >>
