Remember that time I stalked Katy Bowman at the Ancestral Health Symposium 2013? Because she was in Atlanta?  And this happened? Katy is my movement guru.  Her approach is firmly grounded in science, and yet refreshingly free from the burdens that often make science … how to say it? …. a tad unwieldy? Namely, she […]

My five-year-old daughter is taking dance this year. She takes thirty minutes of ballet and thirty minutes of “theater jazz” one day a week. She’s in class with four of her besties, and she is as happy as a clam about it all.  As for me, I am glad that while she takes a full hour […]

We recently had a birthday girl in the house.  My middle child, M, turned five and she requested a dolphin-themed pool party.  She’s my highly gluten intolerant girl and our guest list included our vegan friends and a mom with Celiac.  I feel so blessed that the folks at Dulce Vegan here in Atlanta can […]

Instead of feeling like you “deserve” to eat treat after a meal because you were “good,” you giggled with pleasure […]

I have also observed again and again that when society gives up an activity by outsourcing to others, it always comes back as a hobby. For example, hunting, fishing, gardening, baking breads, and now cooking has emerged as hobbies in America. From “Call Centre Couple trend is inevitable” in The Economic Times by Jagdish Sheth, the Charles […]

I’ve got lots for you this week.  Let’s dive in! If you asked me whether or not I had good mobility in my thoracic spine (basically the part from the bottom of your neck down to the lower back) I would tell you it was just fine.  But when I tried the first rotation from […]
