Join me in my 40 day breathing exercise challenge

I’ve begun a 40 day breathing exercise challenge. Join me!

While researching a breathing exercise I read about (Sudarshan Kriya) I came across a video that described the exercise, how many rounds you should do and what time frame you should use to really learn and integrate the exercise/practice.

Is surgery for back pain really your best option?

For most people, exercise is a better option for back pain than surgery. NPRSuffering from back pain is one of the most common reasons people go to their doctor.

Kihei sunset in Maui

Images from paradise. My 2016 trip to Maui.

Maui is now officially my favorite place on earth.

The most amazing stunt cycling you’ll see, Danny MacAskill

Stunt cycling that will blow your mind.

Seriously… riding a moving wheel of hay??

I ride my bike a decent amount but I’m much more of a road/street cyclist. I’m not the off road, mountain biking type.

Danny MacAskill is. He’s probably the best at it. I’ve watched several of his creative & fun stunt cycling videos and they’re always a big “WOW”. As you watch his videos, you think “Yeah, but he had to do multiple takes to get it right,” and you’d be correct.
