Hi Everyone!  I realize that I have been out of touch lately.  My goal is to stay connected to you on a closer level.  I want to start by updating you with some details about what I have been doing in 2014. This year has been an amazing year for me.  I have furthered my education in sports nutrition at I.S.S.A. and will soon be a certified sports nutrition specialist. I have also journeyed into yoga teacher training through Core Power yoga. I am certified in teaching yoga sculpt and currently in the 200 hour power yoga teacher training.  This has been such a lovely experience for me, I have been practicing yoga since I was a teenager living in the Poconos.  It is so beautiful to continue to deepen my practice and share my knowledge through teaching students.  The excitement is at an all time high!

I cannot explain how much your continued support, encouragement and love means to me.  With the cooler shorter days it is so important to give yourself extra care and rest.  Please know that even though I haven't been around as much this year that you have been in my thoughts and in my prayers. I am looking forward to this reconnect and working together towards feeling your best.  Stay tuned in for some great health tips, recipes and updates.  Thank you!

Much love,
