5 lessons to help you navigate big change (aka things we’ve learned while making big change).

Since we opened our doors in April 2015 you’ve known us to be full of fun and wise with wellness tips. Most importantly though, you know us as regular humans who drink milkshakes, swear and also mediate, and who have just as much real life to handle as anyone else.

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

What the heck IS yin yoga? Let Third Space Wellness teacher extraordinaire, Rick, tell you all about it! When I teach yin yoga to teachers-in-training, I suggest they try to avoid thinking about the practice or analyzing it. Just immerse yourself in it. Then we’ll talk. It is yoga.

White-flag Winter: 5 tips for wintering well

Despite the nuttiness of our winter temperatures so far here in the mid-Northeast, it’s still winter. There’s no denying it when the sun sets early and rises late.

This can … Read More
