    A Day in Long Island Wine Country

    Vineyards are one of my happy places.  There’s just something about them.  They’re beautiful, peaceful, and produce one of my favorite things – wine!  I am even lucky enough to have two beautiful vineyards in my own home town in Connecticut. … Continue reading

Cocoa Cinnamon Pumpkin Seeds

Happy Hump Day peoples!  Why am I so in love with fall?  I wish I could just scoop it all up and put it in a box and keep it forever.

One favorite fall activity I have is carving pumpkins.  Not really for the fact of carving a crazy design or anything, but just to reap the benefits of getting a whole bunch of pumpkin seeds…for free (I know not really but it feels like it)!

Andy and I headed out last weekend to do some fun fall activities.  We even brought the pup since he’s all vaccinated and can be out in the world for real now.  Of course the pumpkin patch we went didn’t allow dogs so I had to go grab one myself…boring.

Anyways, once we got home I carved the pumpkin in about 20 minutes flat.  I had to get the seeds in the oven before Homeland! Continue reading

When Things Change

Happy Monday Bloggies!  I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.  I really have been slacking on the blog front lately and I’m trying to figure out why.  Maybe other bloggers can relate and share their advice?

For some reason I’ve been lacking inspiration lately when it comes to writing and really it should be the opposite.  I have a TON of new things going on, I would think the ideas would be pouring out of my brain…but they’re not!

The more and more I’ve thought about this the more clear the reason has become.  A LOT has changed since I started The Primal Yogi in August, 2013.

I moved to a new town.

I moved in with my boyfriend.

I made the decision to sign up for and then completed my first 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. Continue reading

How Yoga Can Benefit Athletes

I originally wrote this for a guest post on Bodeefit.com.  Since Bodeefit got a bit of a restructure and no longer features blog posts, I knew I didn’t want this great information to be lost into internet thin air!

I’ve actually been teaching a high school football team since I finished up Yoga Teacher Training.  It has been a great experience for me to learn and has also really benefited the players.  Not to mention they’re undefeated…it must be the yoga.

While anyone can reap the benefits from a good yoga session, athletes in particular are starting to realize just how beneficial it could be for their training. Whether you’re a professional athlete or just training for your first 5k, yoga can prepare you both physically and mentally. We saw it with our 2014 Super Bowl Champs, the Seattle Seahawks. They credited weekly yoga to be a significant part of their training. Now more than ever more and more professional athletes are starting to integrate yoga into their schedules. Here’s why:
