hearts, hearts, everywhere

hearts, hearts, everywhere

So we're all awash with red hearts now that we are in February. So let's explore one of my favorite poses, anahatasana, also know as heart melting pose and today I learned it's also called extended puppy pose. I went to do a little research and found this is not a "traditional" yoga pose. It was...

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...

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...

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...

sharing the ritual of a good meal together

sharing the ritual of a good meal together

Growing up, we knew that dinner was always served at 6pm. This was a non-negotiable family time event. Daddy came home, took his seat at the head of the table, Mom served up a home-cooked meal, and we all participated in saying grace before launching into conversation and fueling ourselves. Every...

serve up dinner with a side of silence tonight

In the busy world we live in, I yearn for the nights when my entire family is able to enjoy a hearty home cooked meal together. I have a vision of how these dinners will unfold. The table is set and filled with wholesome food, the ambience is serene, and the conversation is genuine filled with...

Mindfulness pie in the sky

Mindfulness pie in the sky

Reduce stress, find more energy and feel the joy of your life…Sounds like pie in the sky to you? Or only something that might be possible if you were to dump the kids, run off to Mexico, or start on some pretty serious drugs? These possibilities sounded impossible when I first heard about some...
