Charlotte Regional Farmers Market: My 6 Favorite Farmers

I make an almost weekly Saturday morning trip to the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market where I try to buy the bulk of my meat, eggs, fruits and veggies. I have been visiting this market for over five years now and over the course of that time I have gotten to know and love several of the farmers. When I tell friends and clients that I go to the Regional Market, many comment that they’ve never been because a) it seems too far away or b) they don’t know how to navigate it ....more

6 Tips for New Yoga Teachers

On the first weekend of our 200-hour yoga teacher training program, we always ask for a show of hands of how many would like to teach after completing the training. It’s usually about 50% of the room. Many sign up for teacher training to deepen their practice and increase their knowledge of yoga (and of themselves!) ....more
