Ep. 7: So your boss is toxic | Some Scuffs

Crazy unreasonable, or just downright crazy.   Subscribe on iTunes or Google Podcasts   We all know a supervisor, team leader or someone in a position of power who is abrasive, cruel or manipulative.

Can a dose of Insta-zen do any real good?

Instagram is one of the greatest contributors to my yoga anxiety. Yogini influencers deal heavy blows to my self-esteem (yes, we already know I have issues).

To be wild again.

Cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, obesity, cancer- they are all the result of our modern diets.
