Judgement-free zone

We’ve been including the words “judgement-free” in several of our class & workshop descriptions lately. Judgement-Free Nutrition Zone, judgement-free prenatal yoga classes, judgement-free regular yoga classes… Judgement is more of a feeling we impose upon ourselves: we fear our bosses will judge us if we don’t get certain projects accomplished within a certain time frame; we fear our mother will judge what we’re eating or wearing; we fear our father will judge what car we decided to … Read More

Be well this summer.

We are big on learning from nature about how to be well. Part of this is taking note of what each season, uniquely, has to offer us in learning to live our lives with more ease.

The other day I thought to myself, I’ve always wanted to know what it was like to live in England, or Seattle – not that Silver Spring, MD is quite the same, yet this weather gives me just an idea. I think I’ll stay here then. I’ve been pretty bummed out with so much rain, and today when I came downstairs and noted the grayish-blue skies … Read More

Springtime reminders to help you feel healthier all year long: #1 This is the time of year for moving your muscles! If you’re already a fitness buff then keep at it.

Top ten reasons to work with a nutritionist

Food food food. Everyone is always talking about food…what to eat, what to never eat. Our relationships with food can be quite complex. And the relationship between how healthy we feel and the food we are eating (or not eating) can be equally as complex. If you are feeling like food or your health is a yucky and loaded topic then working with a nutritionist could be just the thing to help lighten the load … Read More

Six super easy cheap ways to get better sleep

Ok so I have an infant, hence, lately I am reminded about how precious good sleep is. This little babe is teaching me a ton more about life-hacks for better sleep than I could have possibly imagined. Tons of people want more or better (or both) sleep. In the treatment room, one of the things Joy and I hear all the time is symptoms of poor sleep, fatigue and a gazillion other things that happen … Read More
