Health and Wellness

. December 31, 2014.

Everyone has broken their New Year’s resolutions in the past. But this is the year to turn that trend around. Sure you can’t carve out six pack abs in two weeks, but there are quick changes you can make to become healthier in 2015.
 

I resolve to see a doctor.

Classes are usually bookended by mindful meditative moments.The benefits of meditation include increased relaxation and internal energy or life force, plus it develops compassion, love, patience, generosity and forgiveness. The next step is to take it beyond the studio and incorporate it into our daily lives. A living 'sadhana'!”

 

I resolve to use naturopathic medicine.
