How To Drop That Winter Weight

Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind, & spirit.  When one is free of physical disabilities and mental distractions, the Gates of the soul open”- B.K.S Iyengar March is upon us, which means spring is right around the corner, thank goodness.

My Biggest Secret For Weight Loss!

Your task is not to seek for Love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
- Rumi For some reason February always reminds me of love. It’s probably because Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, or maybe it’s because winter has been so cold that I need something warm to focus on. Lately I have been reminded of how important it is to truly love myself, and I’m not just talking about my self-care practice (that is also an essential part of being healthy).

Cultivating Gratitude

“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”-Eckhart Tolle I can’t believe it is already November. Why is it that as soon as Halloween is over it’s time for the holiday season to begin? Christmas decorations are out, holiday shopping catalogs are delivered, and sales are everywhere.  I don’t know about you, but just thinking about the holidays gives me stress. Last month I wrote about how to reduce our anxiety during this time of year by slowing down. This month I’d like to focus on...

How To Create A Healthy Weight Loss Plan… That Works!
