ody policing and shaming has NO space in my classes nor at the places I choose to work. As someone who has worked for many years on making sure I get to a place of physical, emotional and mental well-being, triggers of fat shaming especially do not serve me. To be able to accept the beauty that is me and the “enoughness” that is me requires that I stay grounded around people and communities who do the same. In a city that generally does otherwise, find a space that values you as you. So friends, as you step into your new year routine, remember that you are beautiful the way you are. You are enough the way you are. You are welcome to my classes the way you are. May this year be one of authenticity, joy and grounding for us all.

When my friend told me she has a mean quinoa recipe with feta and olives, I knew we had to get together and have some fun. Since we couldn’t just eat a salad on it’s own, we went ahead and made some fish too. But, I’ll hold that recipe for next week. You can see… Continue reading Eating Clean: Greek Inspired Quinoa Salad
I don’t have many memories from my early childhood, but the singing and dancing as my mom would drive me to the mall or our family trips to Palm Springs are deeply engrained in my memory. I remember my family’s brown Buick in the mid 80s. It was a simple car but what went on inside was not. A family car isn’t… Continue reading This Is NOT Your Daddy’s Buick
“Let’s go to the beach on January 9th”, said no Angeleno ever. Going to the beach during the winter months, especially in LA, when you can’t expose your skin and get a few shades darker, is considered to be pointless by many I know.
