    All Things Zumba

    Ever heard of Zumba? Zumba is an EPIC, energetic, fun, interval-dance combo workout. The classes move between high- and low-intensity dance moves designed to get your heart rate up and boost cardio endurance. So what is the difference between dance and zumba?

  • Shinrin-yoku Lessons learned from a walk with nature

    Today I decided to take a walk. To put on the breaks, disconnect from society, and the turmoil we are currently experiencing, step outdoors, and maybe even take in a little sunshine. Winter is hard. Winter is hard on a lot of people. I am ready to feel the sun kiss my face again and warm my skin. I started in a bit of a fog, literally and figuratively. It was overcast and drizzling slightly. Not enough to derail my plans, though. I had already decided on the 6-mile trail. I wanted to spend the morning without distraction. I had also just finished reading “Go Wild” by Dr. John Ratey, and I was fascinated by his chapter called Biophilia. This chapter contains ....
