Energy, Not Age

People of all ages attend my classes and that’s the way it’s been for years - mothers with daughters, college kids on summer break, retirees with time (finally) and everyone in-between.

I’ll Have Some Poise With That Workout, Please….

What is poise? The dictionary says it’s a “graceful and elegant bearing in a person” or “a dignified, self-confident manner of being”. I’m always drawn to people with poise and I really love that it defies age, gender, body type and more. Poise is so subtle, yet it’s what makes someone truly attractive.

The gate was open. A bunny hopped by. Roxy’s instincts took over as she darted after the rabbit, into the street. Simultaneously, a red pickup was moving through. Boom. Little Roxy squelched. The truck screeched. I went into emergency mode. I scooped up my dog, bloodied and limp, and ran her into my house. It was afterhours and the vet was closed.

Peaceful Kitchen, Peaceful Eating

My first grown-up kitchen had two sinks, a wine refrigerator and a rotisserie oven (with buttons and settings I never understood!). The second kitchen was 500 square feet with a walk-in pantry and an island bigger than most New York City apartments.
