Don’t be “that” guy… In yoga class…

If you don’t want to be labeled as “that guy” in class, here are a few yoga class etiquette tips to help you: Be on time. Coming late is disruptive. Sure, things happen but if you are consistently late, you should consider taking a different class that fits your schedule better. If you are late for class or if you have to leave early, enter and leave the room as quickly and as quietly as possible. … Read More

What to do when you’re in a panic

You’re probably not reading a blog when you’re in the throes of a panic attack. So store this like a squirrel’s nut next time you’re running late to a meeting, if your’e on the metro when it starts smoking, or sitting calmly when suddenly a wave of overwhelming dread comes over you (like during turbulence). When your heart and mind are racing, when you’re having a hard time taking a full breath, and can’t seem to … Read More

Confessions of a yoga teacher: I’ve been hiding from the Fraud Police

Last week I came home from a poorly attended yoga class. It was rainy and chilly and it made sense to attribute the low number to that. But did I? NOPE. Instead Impostor Syndrome reared its ugly head. Thoughts like: “I must suck as a teacher.” “I mean just look at all of these awesome yoga teachers on Instagram! I don’t look like that!” “I’m never going to be able to do those advanced yoga … Read More

Venting gone bad

Picture this: You get home from work after a shitty commute, from a shitty job, with shitty co-workers. And today in the office, like most days, someone incompetent has yet again made things more difficult than it has to be for you. So to unwind from the day you vent to your partner/spouse/roommate.

My wellness checklist; the ultimate in self care.

I spend a ton of time coaching in the treatment room because, as I tell people on their very first acupuncture visit, “you are the wise person who lives in your body. I’m not the expert on you, I’m here to help illuminate that inner wisdom.” And I mean it. Acupuncture treatments, Chinese herbs and all of the modalities at my finger tips are in my opinion some of the best medicine on the planet. Though … Read More

How to Change your Life on a Tuesday (or “Is Acupuncture Right for Me?”)

This entry provided by guest blogger and baker in Chief, Emily Robins. I was talking to a woman last weekend who suffers from chronic issues after an injury a few years ago. “Chronic” means life-long, un-curable, and usually so tangled that doctors are not prepared to “fix” you. (Imagine chronic illness as a very tangled up necklace chain and a doctor that has oversized fingers and no patience and you’ll know what I’m talking about.) Chronic … Read More

Podcast – Wellness Unlocked: Simple Fertility

Do the words simple and fertility actually go together? We think they do, and we realize this is not necessarily an easy or pretty topic.

So no matter whether you have babies, want babies, are having … Read More

What kind of yoga is taught at Third Space Wellness?

We are often asked this question especially by people who are new to our space. In short, our teachers at Third Space Wellness blend different styles of yoga into their classes. Except for our Yin Yoga class, each teacher takes a blend of Vinyasa, traditional Hatha, Yin, and other yoga schools of thought into class. It can change from day-to-day and may depend on the students in class on that particular day. Because there are … Read More

Is meditation necessary?

We mention meditation often: sometimes in our blogs and podcasts, and sometimes we recommend it to our clients. I’ve noticed that even for me, when I see the term thrown around enough, it starts to sound just like ‘do your homework’ or ‘eat your vegetables’. Yeah yeah yeah, I get it, meditationschmation. Is it really necessary? It helps to revisit the root of why we talk about meditation at all. What we’re really pointing to … Read More
