just clear about what I need to do, and not emotionally dragged down".

In my yoga teacher training, I recently learned about the three A’s of the Alignment-based system of yoga I am learning. Here’s my take on how these three A’s (Attitude, Alignment, and Action) can be brought into our lives.

Attitude: This “A” is equivalent to the Spirit-level in Chinese Medicine. What is the song of my heart, what is my deepest longing for this one precious life, and how am I expressing that song by how I shine bright in this lifetime?

Alignment: This “A” equates with the le...

Do you crave a resting place?

So many of us are stressed-out beyond what we think is healthy! It’s easy to get all-consumed by work, by life, by our relationships.

When you reach your max, or ideally before, what you need is a nice time out.

Though it doesn’t always sound relaxing to lie around with needles, many people find acupuncture a pleasant break, an amazing reset, an opportunity to really check in and find out how you feel.

I made this (less than one minute!) video to help you define w...

Happy New Year!

That’s right! If you missed all those New Year’s Resolutions, today you get to start fresh, as today marks the first day of the Chinese New Year.

So take in all of that natural be...

A friend of mine recently introduced me to a concept that she calls “Beaver-Retriever.” This special animal hybrid works really hard (Beaver), and then hopes for a pat on the head (Retriever).

So many of us suffer from Beaver-Retriever syndrome. We think that hard work will earn us a special acknowledgment, outcome, or result. And sometimes it does! Thus further enhancing the wiring of Beaver-Retriever into our neural network (our patterned ways of being).

But more often than not, acting fro...

Happy Chinese New Year, Friends!

Chinese New Year is the start of the lunar calendar in China and neighboring Asian countries. It’s the time of new beginnings, a great time to clean out your home, have a bonfire, and burn away any of the remaining residue left behind by the tricks and tribulations you may have experienced in the year of the Fire Monkey, a year which we are now laying to rest.

The rooster, in Chinese astrology, is known for traits such as loyalty, commitment, perseverance, an...

I was chopping green beans the other day when I suddenly remembered KITCHEN SHEARS! Growing up, my mom never had scissors/kitchen shears in the kitchen, but my boyfriend Hanbit regularly cuts our food prep time in half by taking kitchen shears to almost everything! They’re great for chopping up bok choy or kale or big late-summer salad greens.

I love watching Hanbit go at it and shear everything up with wild artistic abandon that produces variant textures and shapes. And, yes, they work on...
