being a curious kid again

being a curious kid again

I love teaching yoga to kids, especially kids under the age of 10. When you demonstrate a pose they get a certain look on their faces, curiosity. Then they just give it a try. Not a lot of questions. Not much hesitation. No fear. They just try. Often they flow right into the shape I've shown...

less truly is more

Happy New Year! I hope you are well and had a lovely holiday. It was a different holiday season for us this year. I noticed feeling anxious and lacking as Christmas got closer. We had fewer presents and not very many activities planned. I kept feeling the urge to go get one more present to make...

letting go

Is it just me, or has this been a crazy, fast-paced year? So much has happened, but it doesn’t seem like there was enough time for all that happened to fit into it! My focus for the last few weeks of 2013, amid the bustle of the holidays, is to find some clarity in my own mind where I can let...

The biggest lie

The biggest lie

In the mornings I get two teenagers ready for school. Lately we've been listening to Elvis Duran, a NYC dj, and his crew of hilarious sidekicks. As a joke, he recently asked: "What is the biggest lie you're telling yourself?" Listeners called in crying. Not his intent. Something about this...

Real yoga

On Saturday we had a Yin yoga and acupuncture workshop. If you’ve never done yin yoga it focuses on the opposite of what most of our busy lives are about. Yin is the opposite of yang. Slow, still, calm and quiet. It’s about connecting to your breath, yourself and getting grounded to the...

Mom’s Good Advice

Mom’s Good Advice

Let’s face it: at some point in our lives, we’ve all had to admit that Mom was right about stuff. Whether we ever followed what she said, or put her good advice to work, surely we’ve all had that moment of realization where we sighed out loud in surrender, “Mom was soooo right about...

a different take on Thanksgiving dinner

a different take on Thanksgiving dinner

For years I planned, organized, cooked, and hosted a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all of the trimmings, and decorations just like you see in the movies or on T.V. At least that was my goal. In order to orchestrate this event, I would take two days off before Thanksgiving and spend all of...

put your oxygen mask on FIRST

Fall has officially arrived as if it were overnight here on the West Coast! Skylines turn orange, gold and red, coats and sweaters emerge from their slumber in the closet, and off we go into the holidays. As the season changes, our lives are but a mirror of that change. School is back in session,...

better doesn’t mean boring

I am an avid cook who subscribes to food mags and pours over health food blogs. When cooking meals, I am ultra-focused on health (and lately, some might say I’ve gone a little wild). I live with my longtime boyfriend and I am the primary chef, mostly because I love it, but also partially because...
