What To Do With All Those Leftovers!

Christmas has come and gone and when you look in your refrigerator, you probably see piles of leftovers.

You Probably Have It All

This morning I awoke to the sound of someone at the stop sign revving his engine at 4:00 am.  It’s become a routine and I was once again, irritated that the driver would be so rude and also thinking, “Geez!  Why doesn’t he (or she) get a muffler!” This time, though, I had been awake […]

Running Away from Addiction! One Man’s Incredible Journey

Today’s post is very special.  My friend, Todd Hoffer, shares his intimate, personal story about his addiction to alcohol and his lifelong struggle with finding a better path.  I knew “of Todd” from the time I was a teenager because he was in a band with his brother.  From my vantage, he was the cool guy that went […]

What is Your Intention?

“When you set an intention, when you commit, the entire universe conspires to make it happen.” ~Sandy Forster We often set our intention for our yoga practice before we begin moving.  Sometimes we are able to keep our intention present throughout our practice, but most often, we forget.  Change and commitment are difficult and yet […]
