Spiced Hot Apple Cider

Fall is one of my favorite times of year. Hiking through forests of red and orange and yellow. Picking apples at the local orchard. Wandering through endless corn mazes.

Transform Your Yoga Practice With Movement

If you practice vinyasa or flow yoga, you’re probably used to lots of movement between poses. This, of course, builds heat and gives your yoga practice that flowing, dance-like feel.
