IBS – Food, Yoga, Stress

When I turned 30 in 1983, my digestive system started to go wacko! Not wanting to be graphic, let me just say there was a lot of bloating and constant pressure in my colon and on my bladder. But let me focus on the colon for a moment. In case you are not sure, that’s [...]

Who’s Right? The Republicans or the Democrats?

This can be a tricky question. There are those of us who historically vote strictly along party lines. The problem with this logic is that it creates an “us against them” mentality.

Healing Chronic Illness or Injury with Yoga

There is nothing worse than living with chronic illness and feeling resigned to a life of suffering. I see countless people who have become frustrated by the medical establishment’s response to their particular problem or health issue. Your doctor may not have a clue as to how to help you. He/she may be prescribing drugs [...]

Single on Valentine’s Day – Spread The LOVE!

So it’s Valentine’s Day . . . . . What’s a single girl to do? I know this holiday can be very emotionally charged for people, and perhaps especially so for singles. But my sense is that as a single person (male or female) you can choose how you look at this holiday, which is [...]

Passionate Desire as a Catalyst for Change!

Many of us keep talking about change but end up just spinning our wheels.  Like the yo yo dieter, we waffle back and forth between progress and stagnation.  And if you relate to this syndrome, please continue reading. There is a systematic method to help you manifest whatever is lacking in your life.  And it [...]

Yoga and My Bad Haircut Day!

First of all, let me just say, I am not a very vain person. When Carly Simon sang “You’re So Vain,” she definitely was not talking to me! On the other hand, I know I inherited my value system from my parents.  My dad was employed in the garment industry in NYC in the 50′s.  From [...]
