5,649 Steps to Happiness

Kelly McGonigal has hit a home run again. She wrote The Upside of Stress and now has a new book called The Joy of Movement. She weaves stories and research in a way no one else can and always leaves me feeling inspired. Yet her words in this book are beyond inspiration. She's not trying to...

I am super excited. Yesterday I signed up to run the Broad Street Run with the Children's Crisis Treatment Center (CCTC) team. It's been a long time since I ran an "official" race. Frankly, I thought my running days were over. But after a committed year of functional movement training, it...

Top 5 Reasons to Practice Yoga at Home

I love taking yoga classes and being part of a group, having the guidance of an amazing instructor. Yoga is meant to be shared.

Pyramid Pose with Ease

Pyramid Pose with Ease

I love the beautiful photo of this woman in pyramid pose. When I look at her, I feel the ease with which her upper body floats down for her to kiss her shin. Her grace and shape inspire me. I want to step into that shape and see how that feels. Okay, one foot forward and one foot back, hinge at...
