Go Take A Hike!

I love to go hiking in the fall. The crisp air, autumn colors & crunch of leaves under foot add to the enjoyment. Hiking is simplicity. Step right, step left, up you go. All it takes is a good pair of hiking boots and some pre-hike conditioning to have a pleasant and injury free hike (oh and a mountain or nature trail helps too!) Get Ready: Heading to the mountains or foothills for a day of hiking? Get your heart and legs ready a few weeks before you go. If you don’t regularly do aerobic conditioning, you’ll want to start walking 30 – 45...

4 Common Causes for Wrist Pain

Which of the 4 common causes of wrist pain fits you? A fall on an outstretched hand is a sure way to end up with a wrist injury, but it’s often the cumulative effect of everyday activity and strain on the wrists that result in pain and discomfort.

It’s almost impossible to strengthen your core and arms without using your hands. Sure we can modify our yoga poses and Pilates sequence to avoid bearing weight on our hands. We...

Enhancing Movement and Stability with Your Eyes

I recently attended the fabulous Wanderlust Festival in Stratton Vermont. At the end of a class the instructor encourage us to take the peacefulness we’d just cultivated out into the festival. Specifically he advised to be selective at what we chose to look at and to resist the urge to see everything. As our eyes dart around, so too does our mind. To stay peaceful and centered keep a calm and steady gaze. In yoga practice we use drishti, a visual fixation or gaze point to enhance the steadiness of our postures. When on a boat, we look to a...
