LIving as ONE - Living as ALL

I had the pleasure to teach a FLARE class just today (Jan 22, 2013) and really enjoyed the hearts and souls of each and every one of the students in the room.  You can say that their spirit had certainly inspired the entire practice of the class, not to mention they worked their tails off!  :)  What I have to say may drastically alter your day...

Failed Before? What's the Story on New Year Resolutions?

Why do most New Year Resolutions Fail? In my opinion it is because most peoples resolutions focus on "LOSING" something from their lives. Even if it is unhealthy fat and weight. Try this little exercise: Re-Design your New Year Resolutions to "GAIN" something like Incredible Energy, or Gain a stronger more flexible frame, or Gain a lean healthy figure.

The Anatomy of Knee "Locking", Bikram Style...

Stressed? Getting the Grinch Out of Christmas with Yoga

Sure, you want to deck the halls and be merry, but with the traffic at shopping malls, the interesting personalities of friends and relatives at family gatherings, and the incessant holiday music spouting from every possible storefront, can make a person feel downright crazy during the holidays. Thankfully, yoga can be a great way to restore your sanity at a time when most people are starting to feel a little less than full of holiday cheer. Here are 4 ways yoga can bring out the joy in the holidays and eliminate the grinch:

Chlorophyll and the Skin Doc

So, you think I was some sort of cheetah or something but, today, my loving wife setup an appointment to have my "spots" checked.  This is Australia and that's what you do when in Aussie... LOL, so I go in with this very pleasant doc and he goes over everything. All said and done he says, "You dont have any spots... why you here? You look super healthy and the few spots you have are no issue at all." I say, my wife loves me and I smile. He says, "What do you do to stay so fit?" Me, "Fire Shaper, hot yoga!" He obviously doesn't believe me based on his look.

So you are Sore after your First Yoga Class...

First thing you can do is Celebrate!  That's right, get down to your favorite tunes and dance around the streets because what you have done for your body & your life is such an incredible gift.


Recently a Fire Shaper student was kind enough to pass on an article to us about Hydration that they read.  Actually, this client of Fire Shaper (Bob) is very helpful and loves to contribute to the lives of others around him.  He is constantly sharing information that he learns about life, health, and anything else of relevance.  I want to say "Thank you Bob" as it is people like you who really make an impact on the world around us.  Keep on sharing.. please :)
