A body scan perspective break

These days I can hardly keep up with the health tech devices exploding into the market. Many come across my screen and I must admit I am engaged and often I am about ready to press the button to buy another one and then realize that just might be the moment I need to click another button. The one...

How’s Your Heart Today?

How’s Your Heart Today?

The mark of a wild heart is living out the paradox of love in our lives. It's the ability to be tough and tender, excited and scared, brave and afraid - all in the same moment. It's showing up in our vulnerability and our courage, being both fierce and kind.                          ...

80% Full is 100% Possible

My mom still loves to tell this story. When I was a child (the only girl in a family of 3 boys) I would always happily eat my entire plate of food at dinnertime. Then when everyone was finished and my mom was cleaning up, she would watch me climb into my brothers’ chairs, one at a time and...

A snatch squat, a swifter and a road map

I got up early and happily made my way to the class. Said hello to my friends and then we started to warm up. World’s Greatest Stretch (that is code for a lunge stretch at CrossFit) was the warm-up, and I was still feeling good. We had to get a bar, and my directions were to get a 15-lb trainer...

Last week, I was preparing for a new program to help people review and understand their health biometrics report. Blood pressure is one of the measures within the screening, and I learned that the American Heart Association reports that 1 in 3 adults have high blood pressure and 1 in 6 don't even...

What is Food?

Behind the scenes As we round out winter, I wanted to share a bit about what our team has been up to these last few months behind the scenes. First, let me say we are all filled with gratitude as we approach the tenth anniversary of Prasada. When I sit with that reality, the journey it has been...

Sweet whispers and open doors

Sweet whispers and open doors

I’m a good starter. I get excited about a new subject or hobby, and I am all in. I get the books, take the lessons, get fully immersed. As time passes and I see and feel all that my investment adds to my life, the balancing process begins. How much of THIS do I want in my life? With knitting,...

Honoring your geography

Remember, it doesn’t matter how deep into a posture you go. What does matter is who you are when you get there.                                                                                                            ~Max Strom The...

Wisdom Through Alignment

“We often forget that we are nature. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say we have lost our connection to nature, we have lost our connection to ourselves.”                                                                               ...

A lesson in presence

A lesson in presence

Almost 6 months ago I got serious about learning to dance. Not just dance. To learn a partner dance called West Coast Swing. It is a social dance that at first feels like an awkward high school dance. A DJ plays music and someone asks someone else to dance. The music is popular songs you would...
