HOW TO BOOST YOUR BRAIN HEALTH WITH FOOD

I often look for  foods that will give me energy, help me curb cravings and provide me with lots of nutrition and vitamins. I never give  too much thought about eating for my brain health, memory, focus and concentration. With age and being busy at work or with kids, we may not notice if we are becoming…

If you read my last blog recipe, you would know that I am a self-declared terrible cook.  I forgot to mention, I am also a terrible baker.  For some reason, I am truly incapable of sifting, measuring, rolling, and I'm very prone to over pouring and burning.

STRENGTHENING FOR SNOW SPORTS

We often hear that flexibility reduces risk of injury. As a continuation of our most recent blog, Yoga For Snow Sports, written by our very own PTA, Yoga Instructor, & Health Coach Lisa Tidman, I wanted to discuss a few of my favorite strengthening exercises for the active individual participating in…

YOGA FOR SNOW SPORTS

It can be so fun and exciting to get out into the snow for a day of skiing or snowboarding.  Planning ahead of the season by conditioning is also a wise idea, since winter sports require use of the whole body to participate as we travel down the hills.  Yoga is an excellent way to reduce the chance of…
