I was blown away when I first laid eyes on this month’s lookbook Into the Great Wide Open. It feels clean and new, like a burst of pure, sweet air when you open the window on an early spring morning. Read more »

Post image for My Bikram Journal Day 5, Final Day!!

I have come to my last day of this Bikram yoga challenge and I must admit I do not want it to end; having a challenge to document everyday has been somewhat therapeutic for me.  Although I will say I am looking forward to drinking coffee this weekend!   Read more »

I've just started Bikram! I've done four classes now and can relate to everything you were talking about. At first it is so challenging, and you are literally trying to count how many poses you have done, just so you can figure out how many more are to go, but then you step outside the room and feel so satisfied (despite being sick after my first class). I've noticed that because I sweat so much during the class, I become more aware of all the toxins and other bad things that are leaving my body, which makes me think even more about what I let enter into my body! Bikram has helped me in thinking of what I'm putting into my body, so when I feel like eating something that isn't good for me after a hard day, it's much easier to reconsider. It also helps me to consciously drink water more regularly too!! I've noticed I am also more aware of my posture and how I used my muscles. Tonight I found myself in the shower, unwinding by putting on hot, steamy water and stretching up and down, side to side, noticing the great affects Bikram is having on me. I would recommend to anyone, just don't give up in the first few lessons!

This is wild... I was looking for a Bikram course in Asheville and found this - as soon as you said "...the door opened… an elderly man walked in, “up please, begin” - I was like, "Joel Pierce...?" I didn't even know at the time that you were in Philly. I did some computer work for them a few years back in trade for classes, and man, did I get my time's worth. The man is a force of nature, and his instructors are really, really fantastic. The location is great too. I miss it. I definitely appreciate his approach, which is indeed different from many other instructors. I'm really glad you got a chance to meet him, and I hope you're still sticking with it. Really neat to read a story about Bikram Philly!

Post image for Book Club Meeting: The Power Of Now

Chapter two of The Power Of Now by Eckhart Tolle discusses consciousness and how to use it to eliminate pain in the present.  He begins by explaining that the mind is threatened by the present.  This is because the mind needs the reference of time in order to function and be in control – it thinks of things in terms of the past and future.

I just finished reading "A New Earth"...amazing author!
Amber -Jan 27, 2013, 2:16AM
This book is awesome so far, but as others have mentioned - kind of a slow read. I was particularly struck by the author's ability to describe the ego. He brought it to life in such a way that i visualize it to be a different entity entirely, which makes it easier to single out when trying to take a step out of my head and into the now

Post image for My Bikram Journal Day 4

I woke this morning feeling emotional, I wasn’t sad or upset, I just felt like I was in a quite calm place and it was making me feel odd having suffered for many years with a racing mind.  This feeling felt quite strange to me. During my work day I felt my eyes fill up on more than one occasion for no reason at all. I mentioned my emotion to someone here at our office who practices yoga regularly and she told me if I was doing a lot of back bending and poses using my hips it would bring out a lot of emotion and then it all made sense.

Post image for Poll: Into The Great Wide Open

Our Into The Great Wide Open look book reminds us of a western cool vibe. We’ve added touches of bohemia and lace to create looks that are modern, fresh, and have that prairie dreamy vibe. These are perfect transitional looks that we feel would look quite comfortable at music festivals starting this spring.

Post image for DIY: A Sweet Origami Heart

Valentine’s Day is approaching, and with that in mind hearts are on the forefront. I love origami “paper folding” and have always been fascinated with the Japanese art.  There’s something about seeing a flat piece of paper come to life into a 3-D art form that I find so beautiful, and this is merely done by paper folding!
