Don’t Wait Until January

 Don’t wait. Don’t wait. There is something so exciting about now. Right NOW. This luscious, juicy moment in your life. Right now you can take immediate action that will move you closer to a healthy, chock-full-of-vitality existence. One that leaves you feeling great in your body and your life. There is zero reason to wait until the New Year. Zero. Why do we wait until January to start eating better, to start working out consistently, to recommit to our yoga and meditation practice? Not only do we wait, but we allow (hell we...

Yoga THEN run?

Yoga THEN run?

  Yoga then run? It’s a thing. It is now gorgeous, gorgeous fall running weather. The kind of running that can bring you to your knees with the stupendous beauty of it all. See my FB above after a run last Sunday. Those words dumped right out of my heart and through my fingers. I have a suggestion. Have you ever considered first doing a yoga class and then going for a run? I realize it may seem more intuitive to first run, then head into a yoga class to lengthen it all out and wind down. And yes, that does feel great and offer benefits....

Creativity

Each month The Studio will select a motif to explore. This will play out in various ways throughout the month, but will always begin in our new Monthly E-Newsletter with written pieces from Kathleen and Cass. Here is our first one…CREATIVITY:   From Kathleen Slattery-Moschkau: I remember the first time I read Jack Kerouac (I think it was Big Sur) and being blown away by gorgeous rambling run-on sentences with no thought to periods or commas.  All of it had a sense of poetry and rhythm and stream of consciousness and I thought…you...

No sugar update: Week 2.

No sugar update: Week 2.

Yes, this little digression circles back to sugar. Please bear with me…   Chapter 1 When I first started taking meditation classes, I had a teacher who was very adamant on students remaining absolutely still. No scratching itches, no shifting the body or rubbing your nose. Of course the moment I sat down, every part of my body itched and screamed for a scratch. It was torture. I dreaded the hours leading up to that class and silently prayed for time to fly while I was in it. I decided I stunk at meditation and quit coming. Chapter 2 A...

No sugar update: Week 1

Per my March Sanity post, I’ve given up sugar for the month of March and implemented a few Ayurvedic wake-up rituals. And wow! So many of you emailed to say that you are jumping in on this that I thought I’d send my updates out to everyone. The first day of no sugar was the hardest because out of the blue I found myself dreaming and scheming of sugary things I had not had in years. I won’t mention those specific things here because I don’t want to trigger those thoughts or cravings in your head. However, beyond the first day, this first...

March Sanity

  A Personal Note from The Studio Owner, Kathleen Slattery-Moschkau   I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to shake things up in March. I have a lot on my plate in this upcoming month and I want to do everything I can to bring the best of me to that equation. On the business front, The Studio is launching several new and exciting initiatives in April (stay tuned!) which means the groundwork has to be done in March. On the personal front, my kids are hoops players which has me at gyms all over this beautiful state, I’m getting...

Water + Sleep

Water + Sleep

  Water,  sleep…forgotten gold.    Are you getting enough? I (Kathleen) talk to a lot of yogis getting a decent amount of yoga in their lives, but failing to get enough sleep and failing to drink enough water during the day.  (Someone recently reminded me that I, too, fall in that camp.) Google both of these and your screen will load with study after study showing the damaging effects of failure to rest and hydrate: Irritability, lack of focus, depression, suppressed immune system, stroke and dangerous weight gain are just a...
