Holiday tips and tricks

The Halloween costumes are packed away, the candy wrappers are cleaned up and out of site, and the holiday season is officially in full effect.  Although it feels like you have gained 5-10 lbs. over the holidays, studies show that the average weight gain is only about a pound or two. Seems harmless right? Wrong! Most people never lose the pound they gain and over time the pound add up.

Know your body

Remember when you were a kid and your parents and every other adult around asked you where your nose was, and your toes, and just about every other body part?

Laugh your way to life!

In all my years of teaching yoga and working with health education there is one thing that I felt needed to be tackled before eating well and exercising and that is … drum roll please…. STRESS! It’s not rocket science but it does take a certain level of awareness to recognize our state of stress. If you live and work in America then you probably have chronic stress and are most likely accustomed to it. Can you run your stress away? Perhaps. But when you finish your run the stress comes back. Can you eat your stress away? Hmm… aContinue Reading >>
