Bring on the Ocho!! Welcome to number 8 of our 10 Step Commandments.

Oh yea faithful listeners… Welcome to lucky number 7 of our 10 Step Commandments.  Twilight Zone, School Zone, Erogenous Zone, Time Zone, Danger Zone…I could go on for hours, but tonight we’re focusing on the Zone that I prefer to see in my rear view mirror as I drive off to any new adventure.  I’m talking about the Comfort Zone…that warm blanket of same-ness and predictability that can tend to be a hard habit to break.  I’m not talking about {Read More}

Yoga: Today’s Four Letter Word

In my younger days if you were to ask me about yoga I would have immediately responded with “well, he’s smarter than your average bear and loves picnic baskets, but why he wore a hat and tie but no pants I have no idea”.  As I got a little older, a little wiser and honestly a little stiffer (hah, stiff) yoga became something a little more up my alley.  At its core, yoga is a series of physical postures which {Read More}
