January Love: Make Peace with Food & Yoga Therapy
Here's some of my favorites lately - books, posts, and my free email course.
Two exciting updates first:
- I have a brand new free 7-day email course called: Make Peace with Food! I'm really excited (and proud) about it. Learn about and sign up here.
- If you're in Vermont, I'm running two yoga workshops with my friend Caitlin at Sangha Studio in Burlington: February 7th 10:30 am to 12:30 pm and February 11th 6:30-8:30 to learn about your chakras through movement, meditation, and journaling! (The info should be on the website soon)
On my Nightstand:
- Rising Strong by Brene Brown - When you practice the courage to live a wholehearted life, you may fall. Here's Brene's research, stories, and wisdom on how to get back up.
- Eastern Body, Western Mind by Anodea Judith - Always learning the lesson that the body holds so much wisdom, and the body has a huge capability for healing.
- Color me Calm coloring book! I've always loved coloring. As a camp counselor in college, I would color along with the kids during rest hour (or nap!).

Things I'm Digging
- Snowboarding. While the snow has been disappointing this year here - everyone south of us (without mountains!) got all the snow, I was still able to get in a beautiful, clear day.
- Yoga Therapy: I did a yoga therapy session focused on expanding my breath in my body to relax my nervous system and contain my energy, so I have the space to work with others in a heart-centered way without completely draining my emotional energy. I'm amazed about how much more I learned about my body in that hour! So powerful.
- FRIENDS on Netflix: Still watching it...years later. So funny!
