Let’s start out with some of the realities about health and wellness journalism.  And for that, I point you to Katy Bowman’s Expert Ankles piece.  Now, from time to time, I have been known to remind my class members that just because they see a picture of a movement in a health or fitness mag, […]

So the hot news this week is all about tinkling. Specifically, a video from Crossfit which characterizes the “common” act of peeing during a workout as something that is “normal,” and even the sacrifice one must make to be fit and competitive. If you are someone who cares about women’s health, as I am, this […]

More hydrangea goodness from my yard.  There’s something about this time of year when my plants seem out of control, and everything is lush and full that makes me overlook the weeds and untended beds.  I love it. Speaking of things I love, I love brownies and I am on a quest for the perfect […]

I’ve written before about how I suffered from chronic pain in my right pelvis and psoas-area after the birth of my second child.  I was in physical therapy for about a year and a half, and as a result became interested in (obsessed?) with whole body alignment and the impact it plays in health and […]

I’m going to dissect a sacred cow today.  Don’t take offense if it’s something you love.  Remember, we’re all about exploration here. I won’t recommend Pilates to my clients, and if people tell me they’re taking it up, I quietly cringe a little inside. Here’s the practical side of my cringe.  Pilates is expensive.  Mat […]

All of my babies have been wakeful little sprites.  We’ve struggled with naps and nighttime.  Getting them down has always been a lot of work. [Please, no “Have you read Ferber/Ezzo/name-the-sleep-expert-who-helped-you?” comments. […]

Beware the Ides of March! (March 15th is to us humanities geeks what March 14th is to the math and science wonks.) (I took a whole lotta Latin in high school.) Now, for the reason we’re all here … My friend, S, who is an uh-may-zing cook and quite a foodie has just embarked on […]

I’ve never explained the situation in full detail, but I have made reference to a chronic pain situation that I have in my right pelvis/psoas/hip area. The MDs, physical therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturist, and movement specialists that I saw were never able to fully “diagnose” me with a single cause for my pain.  No one can […]

I had an appointment on Monday, and as I walked through the office I noticed an empty desk with an[amazon_link id=”B000VDTEDA” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ] exercise ball[/amazon_link] where the desk chair should be.  It would seem someone has been reading up on the negative effects sitting can have on a person’s body.  Some folks argue […]

Ohmygoodness, let’s not delay.  I’ve got some fabulous stuff for you. I am trying this recipe this weekend.  Chocolate Gelatin Bars – they not only look delish, but they also look like fun to make with the kiddos.  (I am always a big fan of recipes where you put things in a blender and go.) […]
