Running doesn't have that much in terms of fancy gear. Watches, apps, reflective clothes, and headlamps are all nice but not necessary, right? All we really need is a shirt (maybe), shorts, and shoes. Ding, ding, ding! That last one is very important. We don't have that much gear but that one thing, our shoes, is extremely important.… Continue reading Running Shoes: Your Best Friend
Why do we practice going upside down? It's not easy, it is scary, and it's a long, slow journey to success. So why do we do it? Well, we do it because it's hard. Yoga is a beautiful thing. It's an art that focuses on the journey, not the outcome. Not saying that others don't, but this one… Continue reading Finding The Balance: Inversions

Ouch. That about sums up a stiff back. For something we think we don't use too much, a stiff back sure can throw a wrench in your day, week, month...year. I shiver just thinking about how much trouble a stiff back can cause. Everyone gets a stiff back at some point. The issue is that not everyone deals… Continue reading Stiff Backs and Yoga
They're out there, the immortals. They go to work, buy groceries, teach children. They cry, they scream, they fight, they mess up. But still, they are immortal. At least, that's my take on it.

Break your habits. And no, not only your bad ones.
