Ayurveda: The Science of You

Known as yoga's sister science, Ayurveda is the 5,000-year-old practice of medicine - making it the oldest recorded! Long before Western medicine realized the mind-body connection, sages in India developed this sophisticated system designed to not only treat illness and ailments, but to prevent them through knowledge and care of self. That means we have…

Book Club: Circe

Now that summer is here, I'm doing my best to revive the Women's Book Club that I started last summer.

Social Media Detox 2.0

Last April I stepped away from social media to help prioritize and refocus on the important things. It was a wonderful experience.
