The holidays are upon us and like all of you, I have been rushing around getting ready, running from once place to another.  Today, as I actually took time out to "show up" for yoga I thought to myself, this running around is really no different then what I do all the time....on a daily basis.  Always rushing from point A to point B and not really paying attention to what happens in the middle.  I always walk away from yoga with a new perspective and truly take in the wise words of the many wonderful teachers i get to experience at the Birchwood Center.  So I am here to pass along her words through me in my words, to you all (all 4 followers that I  When we travel from one destination to another, there is always so much going on in between that we don't pay attention to....that gets lost in transition.  So not only in my practice of yoga, but in my day, I am choosing to pay attention to all the "in between" while I go from point A to point B.  So far so good....there is a beautiful world out there with much to be grateful for...and all I have to do is show up.....Happy Holidays and from my heart to all of you a very blessed New Year!!!!!

Organic vs Natural

How many people know the difference between something labeled organic and something labeled natural?  If you buy something with the label "all natural"  don't you think you are getting something all natural?  And what exactly does that mean?  Unless you are buying organic you may still be getting additives, pesticides, and fungicides in your food, just to name a few.  FDA regulation allows food companies to add a list that goes on in the tens of thousands of "natural" additives to our so called all natural food and still call it "natural."  FDA considers these additives as GRAS (generally regarded as safe).  What these additives are doing is altering the flavor and taste of our food.  So here is my advice....go organic.
