Mindfulness has come up more times than I can count in the last few weeks. Articles, images, workshops… all gentle reminders to slow down, to be fully present for an experience, to appreciate what you are doing with all of your senses.

Make 2014 the Best Year Ever!

January 7, 2014 / Announcements

As we said good-bye to 2013 recently, I believe most of us spent some time reflecting on the past year. We remembered the highlights and the lowlights, the great events and the not so great ones, the moments we would never forget, and those moments we wish we could forget. But now it’s time to look forward… Read More

5 Tips for a Healthy Holiday Season

December 10, 2013 / Announcements

This time between Thanksgiving and New Years is supposed to be “the most wonderful time of the year”, yet so often we get stressed out of our never ending to-do and gift buying lists, the extra time it takes to find a parking spot in our local shopping centers, and all the obligations we feel we need… Read More

Thoughts about Social Media

August 13, 2013 / Announcements

Social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and the like) is a double edged sword. On one hand, we can have a chance to easily connect with others virtually, but on the other hand, many of our relationships can become superficial. Are we becoming too impersonal by communicating via our electronic devices too much? I have read… Read More

What is YOUR Challenge?

June 19, 2013 / Announcements

Recently, we challenged our students to complete 21 practices in 25 days at our studio. I loved seeing them often, watching them earn their stickers and add them to the board next to their names, and hearing about the positive differences they have noticed in their lives. A record number of our participants met their… Read More

Limitless Possibilities

April 7, 2013 / Announcements

One morning my then 11 year old son and I were talking about the high cost of college education in the US, when between 2 spoonfuls of Mini Wheats, he told me me that we did not have to worry about him since he would be playing for Duke as their starting point guard when… Read More

Cultivating Our Inner Guide

January 31, 2013 / Announcements

In the Yoga Sutras (an ancient and foundational text of Yoga) Patanjali describes the purpose of Yoga, that which is to cultivate stillness in the mind.  In this space of clarity we begin to find our inner guide, that special voice that reminds us of our purpose.  The internal compass that allows us to traverse through the landscape of… Read More
