"Acting on its mission “to address and manage behavior issues that lead to childhood obesity, stress, self-abuse, bullying, and violent behavior of all kinds,” the program is designed to be easy to learn and to complement any behavior modification systems already in place. The heart of the program is simple: teach kids to project, rather than suppress, their emotions, and teach them to express these emotions in healthy and efficient ways."

Recover from the Holidaze with Yoga

This is your year for it to “click,” and stick! How? By adding Yoga to your wellness plan for 2012. Practicing Yoga is an excellent way to be proactive concerning your overall health and wellbeing. Exercise should be viewed as a reward for the body not a punishment. I invite you to change your perspective. The real challenge comes with changing the mind and relationships (emotional connection). The physical benefits will come, and last if we do the work from the inside out, though a practice you enjoy.

Journey to the Center

Remember your first lesson on balance? I do. It was on the teeter totter, when someone bigger than me on the other end launched me like a rocket into the air. Only to learn the next time how it feels when someone jumps off the other end and your spine seems to move through your head when you hit the ground.

The Beauty of Yoga

When we get dressed for the day we chose our clothes to balance the external elements and balance our internal comfort. Yoga is practiced in much the same way, with attention and intention.

Fitness Fumble?

Struggling to keep your wellness routine from falling apart as the weather changes? You’re not alone. As the season changes and the temperatures drop the instinct to hibernate and put on layers returns. I invite you to go with the flow of nature and change your routine during each seasonal change. This will keep you motivated and looking forward to finding new ways to continue on your path of health and wellness. After all, what we resist persist so embrace a new pattern. When we get comfortable it’s time to change it up. This is how we become resilient.

Helping your Teen

Helping your Teen Manage Stress and Perform Their Best. Teenagers, like adults, experience stress everyday and can benefit from learning stress management skills. When teens become overloaded with stress it can lead to anxiety, withdrawal, aggression, depression, physical illness, or poor coping skills such as drug and/or alcohol use.

Yoga for Health Assurance

The only way to insure your health is to find a balance that keeps your body, mind and spirit at peace and working together. The current research proving the healing power of yoga is making many western physicians add yoga and meditation to their list of complimentary therapies. I have seen many of my students experience the benefits of proper breathing to combat stress and anxiety. Moving the body in gentle ways to relieve pain or let go of the sense that the body has betrayed them. When going through cancer treatment, living with chronic pain or heart disease your mind and spirit are some of the defining factors of your recovery.
