Yoga for youthfulness

Acclaimed Yogi Peter Sterios unlocks the keys to longevity

Rugby. Women. The Ego. These are not the reasons for studying yoga that you’d expect to hear from Peter Sterios, a world-renowned yoga master who has taught yoga at the White House and who founded the massively successful yoga mat company, Manduka. But nothing about Sterios and his yoga style is as expected.

Luffa Love: locally-grown luffas and herbs provide natural relief

Is it a sponge? Is it a plant? Just exactly what is a luffa and what are the benefits of using one? A visit to The Luffa Farm in Nipomo for a tour is just the thing you need to do to learn all about it.
 
“They’re sponges, right?” That’s the question most people ask when they come to the farm. And the answer is no, they are not sponges like the ones that live in the ocean. A luffa is a plant. Proprietor Deanne Coon and her family have been growing luffas for more than 20 years.

Living and thriving with the big “C”

I grew up in San Luis Obispo. It was an idyllic and active childhood thanks to my amazing parents. I was one of those kids whose parents would literally tell me go outside and play until dinner. This resulted in frequent tromps all around Bishop Peak where I invariably got muddy at the pond. It also included daily trips to the SLO Swim Center for swim practice. The smell of chlorine wafting over the pool on a summer morning makes me want to dive in and crank out a few 1000 meters (time has allowed me to romanticize those killer workouts).

Revamp your life

The gains in diverse exercise

Fitness places don’t really appeal to me. Perhaps I secretly feel like I have to be fit in order to go to a fitness center. “That’s a common misconception,” says Lindsay Ashton of Revamp Personal Training in Morro Bay. I know she is right. How silly! You start a fitness routine to GET fit.

The most unique workout… Barre none

Location, location, location. Apparently it makes as much of a difference in a workout routine as it does in real estate. Perhaps this is because not everyone is inspired to exercise at the sight of an industrial warehouse gym or a room full of hulking workout equipment. Some of us find motivation in the finer details. And for this set, Assets BarreFitness™ has you at ‘hello.’

Stand up straight!

Proper posture is essential in life and exercise

Posture during exercise will greatly affect not only your endurance, but other aspects of your life as well. Poor posture pits your own muscles and physiology against yourself – you fight your own body!

At Bauman College in Santa Cruz, Nancy laid the foundation for utilizing natural and holistic cooking methods as a means of treatment and healing. Since her graduation in August 2009, Nancy has developed a successful career by making sustainable healthy eat habits available to her patients. Today she specializes in cooking and developing meal plans for cancer, chemotherapy, diabetes, and other patients with other severe illnesses.
