The Have's and the Have-Not's

I had a wonderful talk with a dear friend tonight, and am so happy that we had a chance to connect.  She reminded me that everything in this life is precious, and all that we take for granted can change in an instant.  I really want to try and focus on what I DO have, rather than what I DON'T have.  Focusing on the negative tends to manifest more negative.  Being positive has the tranformative ability to create more positive around us.

Age of Innocence

I hope everyone's day is going well.  I wanted to share with you something that one of my students said yesterday.  She expressed earnestly that she really wanted to be "reflexible!"  She's six years old.  I thought her unbridled enthusiasm and innocence was so sweet, and I thought that us adults could really learn from that.  As we get older, and further and further away from our childhood, we lose that innocence about us, and our lives start to become stale; our existence mundane.

You only get one body

Here is an interesting article that is funny and shockingly true.  It was written by a renown Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist that I admire and respect.  His name is Mike Boyle.

Imagine you are sixteen years old and your parents give you your first car. They also give you simple instructions. There is one small hitch, you only get one car, you can never get another. Never. No trade-ins, no trade-ups. Nothing

The Pioneering Studies of Dr.Weston A. Price DDS

Weston A. Price documented the most thorough investigation of dietary variations among "primitive" peoples in his highly acclaimed book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration.  In the early 1930's, Price traveled the world along with his wife studying the relationship between health and diet among the native peoples he visited.

Breathe Easy

Breathing is so automatic that most of us don't even realize we're doing it.  Yet, the breath is a vital part of our lives, without which, we would all die!  I've been thinking lately about the realationship between posture and breath.  It's much easier to remember to have good posture (belly in, chest up, shoulders back and down) while working out or in yoga class.  However, it's much harder to remember in the midst of our everyday activities.

It's all about "Choices"

Many people think that exercise, movement, eating nutritious meals, and being healthy is a lot of work. The fact of the matter is that moving too little, eating incorrectly and being unhealthy are simply choices with repercussions.  The repercussions I speak of include physical, emotional, mental, financial, social, occupational, intellectual, and spiritual degeneration.  

To New Beginnings

 Happy New Year to all of you!  As we enter into another new year, full of possibilities, I've been thinking about something that a yoga master said to me once:  "It is better to be wrong and blissful than to be right and miserable."  In a world where there are so many options and opinions, this is a wonderful reminder for me to be true to myself.  Ultimately, despite all the input we have from our own minds, and from the mouths of others, only you know what's right for you.

My disdain for circuit training

I know what you folks are saying in response to my disdain for circuit training: " WHAT? Is this guy crazy? I think Circuit Training works!"
Now before you get upset, just wait a minute, let me explain. This is America right? Am I not innocent until proven guilty? Want to hear it? Here it goes.

Why I am not a Circuit Fan:

Living in the Moment

The news of a friend's passing much too early in life is just another reminder to us all that we need to take a a moment to breathe, and stop for a minute to be grateful for all that we have in our lives. Remember to be present in every moment of your life, never sacrificing this moment for another. The best future is RIGHT NOW.

Breakfast for/of Champions

Good morning folks, are you ready to begin your day? To start off on the right foot it is imperative to fuel up with the most important meal of the day, Breakfast. Most of my clients have trouble with breakfast, I mean I've heard it all. No time, don't know what to eat, or how much to eat, and I'm just not hungry in the morning. All of these "reasons" are valid, and I will acknowledge them, however they are not good enough to where you skip Breakfast. Breakfast is exactly what it sounds like, it is a meal to "break" your "fast".
