Alignment In the New Year

Walking in to hot yoga this morning at 8am on a Sunday was the hardest and most rewarding part of my day. Getting out of bed on this chilly morning was anything but easy. I wanted to hit the snooze button and climb back under the covers. But I got up and made it to my mat within two minutes of class starting. And I was in the worst mood. It was early, hot and

Cozy Rituals During your Holiday Season

You’ve made it through Thanksgiving, hooray!! Consider the ‘battle’ of the Holiday Season half way done. To me, Thanksgiving is the more difficult Holiday to make it through.

Over my Thanksgiving break, I learned a few more things about staying healthy during the Holidays. Going into
