  • October 16 – It’s Sweater Time, and What Better Time for Soup!
    Coconut Curry Lentil Soup, Papaya Salad, Greek Yogurt topped with a warming Raisin & Ginger Chutney
    There is nothing better than hunkering down under a blanket with a nice steamy bowl of soup and a good hunk of crusty bread, even if it is on the beach!  This class we will talk about the different kinds of lentils, how to cook them and why they are so darn tasty and good for us.  This soup comes together quick and makes a ton and, I think, is delicious.  The papaya salad is light and refreshing and perfect with the flavors of the soup.  My chutney is not only fantastic served over Greek yogurt, it doubles as toppings for pork or chicken, and you will definitely want to make extra!
  • November 6 – Thanksgiving. Let me show you how to make a show stopper turkey, AND you get to sleep in!
  • December 4 – A Christmas meal that’s guaranteed to make you a hero!

INDIVIDUAL YOGA THERAPY – Although group yoga classes can render many benefits, personal transformation and overall health are best facilitated with personal instruction and a teacher-student relationship. In this way, yoga can be beneficial for stress management, self-care that supports health, and also personal growth. I work individually with each student to develop a practice specific to their desires and needs. Asana, Breathing, meditation and chanting may all be integrated into a practice.
