How to Stay Mindful During Back to School Season

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 8/18/2017 to Community

The transition from summer to back to school season can be a chaotic time for both children and parents. Stores are packed with back-to-school sales, vacation dwindles to an end, and routines are set in place for the school year ahead.

It’s easy to stress over this shift, however it’s important to stay mindful during this period. Children already have a lot on their mind: new teachers, new classmates, new classroom and new lessons to be learned. They go from constant play and rest to learning and remaining sedentary for six hours a day. With these three tips, both you and your child will be fully rejuvenated and prepared to tackle the new school year in a healthy, mindful manner.

My Yoga Teacher Training Journey: Part 4

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 7/5/2017 to Community

The deeper I am into my teacher training, the more I am forced to step out of my comfort zone. The trainees have finally started teaching in the community, and it’s been a little nerve racking to say the least! 

My Yoga Teacher Training Journey: Part 3

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 5/24/2017 to Exercise

Oh my, where to begin? I have grown so much in the past two months.  I’ve been getting more comfortable with my postures, and we’ve been discovering the many uses of yoga props. Our class has been learning the breakdown of each asana (posture), the benefits and contraindications....

My Yoga Teacher Training Journey: Part 1

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 2/28/2017 to Exercise

Around November or so, I was going through a rough patch. I’ve been feeling lost and unfulfilled for quite some time, and my mind was tangled in thoughts that kept reaching dead ends. All of my friends were pursuing their dreams and chasing their passions…but where was mine? What was my passion, and what was my purpose in life? I was in desperate need of guidance, of any sign that would set me on the right path.

Stay Fit this Valentine’s Day with Active Date Ideas

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 2/13/2017 to Exercise

Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love, whether you celebrate with your significant other, your friends, your family or your dog.

Attending Gasparilla this Saturday? Here’s your Survival Kit

Posted by Kristen Baureis on 1/27/2017 to Diet and Nutrition

For those who are attending the Pirate Fest this Saturday, you know it’s going to be an exciting day filled of beads, booze, pirate outfits, and lots of walking in Downtown Tampa. Pirates take this day quite seriously; many start drinking as early as 7 am and keep the party going until 2 am. Since this will be by seventh year attending, I have a good feel on how the day will go and what I’ll need to do to stay on top of my game.

Based on my past experiences, I’ve created a Gasparilla Survival Kit that will not only help you make it through the day but it might even prevent you from getting a hangover (say whaaa?).

To avoid feeling absolutely terrible later on, make sure to at least include a few items (if not all) in your Gasparilla Survival Kit:
