More Than Stretching – Yoga is helping teens with stress and anxiety. When I began teaching yoga in 2013 I noticed the conspicuous absence of youth involvement. Since then yoga has gained popularity among people of different ages and abilities.

I was in my late teenage years when I began the practice of […]

This substance covers over 70% of the Earth’s surface, and all known life is contingent on the precondition that water is present in a given environment.

Yes, this substance may be readily available to us, available from many sources, drinkable, and essentially everywhere we go […]

It can also be a difficult task to avoid sugar […]
As living creatures, we are all radiant. Our cells literally emit ‘biophotons’. Biophoton output has been understood as expressive of one’s state of health; more biophoton output, more vibrant health. Viewed with certain instruments, human beings are bioluminescent, shimmering creatures; and little stars made of stardust. Such thoughts can be utterly confounding when it all seems so mundane sometimes… Now, I am not exactly sure what conclusions to draw from these statements of fact, but […]
