Move a Muscle… Change a Feeling

Drop the suit, kick off the heels. Unravel and jump in the mud!
It’s good to get sweaty, dirty, abandon the persona and unravel-Play!

Working it out in the gym, woods, yoga mat, crossfit; You’re already working (playing) hard so work (play) harder…already dirty so get dirtier.. already sweaty so get sweatier…already have to wash your gym clothes so give it everything you’ve got!

Regular exercise is a vital part of any successful health plan.
Mixing it up, (different exercise routines) trains the body to let go of excess fat while building up more muscle tissue.
As adults play time is the first to go from a to do list and yet studies show its imperative to a happy life! Schedule in & protect your play time.

“What do most Nobel Laureates, innovative entrepreneurs, artists and performers, well-adjusted children, happy couples and families, and the most successfully adapted mammals have in common? They play enthusiastically throughout their lives.”~ Stuart Brown, Institute of Play [Read more…]

Kate is an authentic whole hearted and effective teacher with decades of experience. I am honored to be taking this course along with many friends and clients. A daily short meditation practice has profound positive effects on  health, work & athletic performance, levels of happiness, patience, interpersonal skills …etc etc. All good! I hope you’ll join Kate and I in this 8 week journey. Please note most people cannot make all 8 sessions or the one full day so Kate has options. No worries.

Location is the shoreline crossfit building in a spacious comfy carpeted  room perfectly suited to meditation. Its going to be yummy-dont miss this convenient opportunity to learn from  a local gem, Kate Mitcheom.

Nourishing Nugget Newsletter


michelangelo's David

Thank you to yoga students and nutrition clients that have subscribed to the Nourishing Nugget Newsletter. I honor the teacher in all of us as we learn from one another.  You will find quotes of wisdom from a course I am currently taking with author, professor Tal Ben-Shahar.  It’s called Positive Psychology and is completely aligned with the mission of Nourishing Habits LLC. I am practicing to manifest my ideas for a broader audience as well as become a happier human being. I hope you’ll join me in practicing old tools in a new way; each one gleans deep insight and grace. 

When Michaleanglo was asked about how he created his sculpture of David he told of going to the quarry and upon seeing a block of marble “… in this marble i saw David, and all i needed to do was take that piece of marble and chip away the excess stone…”. To take away all that was not him.

Yogis: Is that not our goal as well? To come back again and again to our true essence. Who are we in a given situation, in life’s transitions…we practice on the mat and off. Michaleangelo was a genius because he saw that seed of greatness in a block of marble.  “
Henry David Thoreau “The soul grows by subtraction not addition.”
A few thousand years earlier “In pursuit of knowledge, every day something is acquired; in pursuit of wisdom, every day something is dropped.” Lao Tzu

…”We are in the know about ourselves. we can see in ourselves, and chip away the excess.  The joy, the love, is inside each of us, sometimes it’s obscured. it’s hidden, sometimes very deeply, but it’s still there, always for everyone. Imagine walking around and seeing that every person you see has a metaphorical david within them.  A beautiful, powerful, loving, joyful self.” Tal Ben-Shahar

Yogis: We cultivate empathy by first acknowledging what we feel.
Let’s continue to practice together.

See you on the mat and off

Love to all,
