Last weekend I had the incredible opportunity to attend a yoga festival…of classes and music, and sweet souls. I nourished my body, my mind and my heart. I walked in the dusty, windy desert grounds, I danced to the music around me, I moved to the words of instruction. Above all, I was reminded of […]

There is always advice about how to live a healthy life yet, some habits you and I have might actually be working against us—things like late weekend night meals and ignoring that Broccolini recipe we keep saying we will try. They may seem harmless, but a few not so great habits over time really do […]

Colleen Juarez October 9, 2017 Exercise, Food & Nutrition, Health, Mind & Body

Laurie Mileur is one of my clients and a special lady.  Her recent article about breast cancer written for our local paper helped me become better informed as I hope it will for you too!
