The Modern Spine and Pilates


Our modern spine has evolved to gift us with what is known as text neck.  It is the term used to describe neck pain and damage caused by looking down at your cell phone, tablet or other device too frequently or too long.  I am always walking behind people while commuting and thinking “why are they walking so damn slow?”.  The same is the case when you are driving which is even more dangerous.  Please people – make it a habit to pull off to the side of the road to text or move away from the flow of traffic when walking if you need to send a message.   Common courtesy - plus it can cost you your life or someone else’s!

What I'm Loving Now

I visited the North Fork of Long Island this weekend and stumbled across the amazing lavender farm at Lavender by the Bay in East Marion.  Definitely worth the trip to pick your own lavender but, if you cannot get there, you can also order products online from them at:  https://lavenderbythebay.com/


I would like to share some of the knowledge that I learned there with you because I think it is so fascinating...................

Be The Best Version of You


I get it – sometimes we wake up feeling downright ugly and out of step with the world.  We just want to put the covers over our head and take a “mental health day”.  Trust me, there is nothing wrong with this, so indulge yourself.  People pick my brain all the time on how I live my life and what I do.   I always say it should not be about unreasonable expectations that are put on us by our society and culture.  It is about being the best version of you.

What I'm Loving Now

Meet my new magic bullet:  the Rollga.   This cross-directional foam roller is designed to stabilize the hips, align the back, and increase range-of-motion. It is ideal for muscle recovery, fascial health, and functional restoration of movement.  It is uniquely crafted to nurture the nooks and crannies of your body.   The groves are designed and contoured to fit your body and reach trigger points that are difficult to reach with an ordinary roller. Trust me – this little baby gets into all of them.

Go Red For Women®

Go Red For Women®  is the American Heart Association’s national movement to raise awareness about heart disease and stroke in women and February is Go Red Month! All women and men stand united this month (and all year for that matter) to fight heart disease. We know all too well that heart disease shows up differently in women than in men when it comes to symptoms and course of action of the disease. Statistics show that heart disease kills more women than cancer. It remains the number one killer of women and 55% of women are unaware of their risk.

Pilates for Cerebral Palsy

It has recently been brought to my attention that Pilates can be used to help lessen the symptoms of Cerebral Palsy.  Physical activity is important for CP patients and Pilates can provide many benefits since it can be adapted to people with physical limitations.  It works to improve symptoms as it increases mobility and range of motion.   Clearly the following benefits would be uplifting for anyone with Cerebral Palsy:
