A Man’s Perspective: It’s Not All About Boobs and Butt

A good friend of mine once said, “As you get older the physical becomes less and less important.” I could not agree more. Do not get me wrong, an attractive exterior is still something to be admired and it will still attract one’s attention, but it will not create a strong connection or an everlasting impression. It is the qualities that define someone that makes them truly sexy and entrancing. Everyone’s physical appearance is different and how they maintain that appearance is different. The physical lacks longevity, embrace who you are and be proud of it. Attractiveness will always be…

Throw Your New Year Resolutions Out the Window

It’s a new year, so new goals, new intentions… or maybe old ones from last year revisited? Just because it’s a new year doesn’t mean we throw last years goals out the window or does it? So what if you didn’t accomplish what you set out to do at the beginning of last year. There are no resolution police. The only person you have to be honest with about it is yourself. But why do some resolutions not stick? We all know that setting new goals at the beginning of the new year is a lost cause. Fuck new year…

One Life, Two Perspectives

Perspective One: My life sucks. I’m broke, I hate my commute to work, I’m too tired to workout and I never have time to do anything I want to do. I got kicked out of my place in Ocean Beach a few months ago and now have to find another place to live but the problem is that everything is too expensive and landlords have stupid rules about dogs. Now I have to live at my manfriend’s mom’s house in San Clemente. It’s great and all but I have to drive 45-60 minutes to work everyday. It sucks gas out…

Just Because Your Ego is Talking Doesn’t Mean You Have to Listen

It’s been awhile since I’ve stepped into a Yoga studio to practice. I’ve been teaching for a year now and have only done my own personal practice at home or watched videos on YogoGlo, but I have recently been wanting to be back into a studio setting. Today I went to a studio that I had never been to before. I didn’t know any of the teachers or students. I was an unfamiliar face and I liked it that way. I knew that, before I even stepped into the studio, that my mind would be comparing my teaching abilities with…

Home Is Where the Heart Is

We’ve all said it at some point or have heard someone say it, “home is where the heart is” but have we ever really thought about what that means? I started thinking about it when I saw a sign that had the catchy little quote written over somebody’s door and after spending the summer not having a permanent living space, I really started to think about where home really is… and home IS where the heart is of course. Our hearts sit inside our chests, in our bodies and that truly is where home is. I’ve realized over the last few…

Let Go, Buy Less and Save the World

  I had an opportunity to clean out the garage of house I used to live at. At that house, there was a bunch of stuff left behind from past roommates and old crap, I had a U-Haul truck and thought… why not? So after two trips to the dump and one to Goodwill, filling the truck to the top both times, I cleared out the garage. Which is totally awesome in every way except for the fact I felt terrible about throwing so much stuff away. When I was at the dump I couldn’t help but be saddened by the amount of crap people throw…

Who is it Really About?

Last weekend I attended the Perform Better Fitness Conference in Long Beach California. It’s a 3-day event featuring awesome speakers well known in the sports & fitness industries. Half the day is lecture the other half is hands on. There are four classes to choose from every hour… it’s like Disneyland for personal trainers. So you can imagine 800-900 fitness “professionals” scattered about in a convention hall. Talk about fit bodies every where, all wearing the top of the line fitness apparel, carrying around water bottles and their protein bars… you know… for that “just in case” snack. Every single…
