Two of my current interests are yoga & food and my commitment to trading in a life of "dieting" for a life of healthy delicious eating and living. My passion for yoga spills over into a lot of my life.
I credit it with helping heal my body and enrich all aspects of my life. A few days away from my mat and I find myself craving it.
My yoga practice combined with a focus on feeding myself healthy delicious food also helped me lose thirty pounds and keep it off. It's funny, but when finally I stopped worrying about losing weight, and instead began to focus on getting healthy, the pounds gradually disappeared.
Yoga has been so helpful to me I hope to help make it accessible and user-friendly, especially for the over-forty beginner. I get excited when I learn just how many people are doing yoga these days. It seems like wherever I go I meet another person engaged in a yoga practice, which is great. But there are a lot of people who are hesitant to give it a try.
I hope to help change this by encouraging people to find the right class, or if they can, take a few private or small group sessions to get comfortable with the poses.
I am living proof that you don't have to be particularly athletic or flexible to experience the benefits of a yoga practice.
Eating is such an important aspect of life; I think it is important to enjoy food while maintaining a healthy weight. Actually, it is hard to overeat good healthy food.
Did you ever hear of anyone getting up in the middle of the night craving salmon or kale?
It’s the junk food, especially the highly processed snacks made from bad fats, sugar, high fructose corn syrup and white flour that cause the problems.

When we start to trade in the processed stuff for real food, we get more balanced and the cravings diminish.
Diets are a bad idea on many levels. A topic to be explored in greater detail for sure.
