Farm-to-Table - A Sustainable Movement

Posted by Will Knight

Dec 19, 2014 10:00:00 AM

Here in Milwaukee, a great meal at one of our city’s many notable restaurants is something that local foodies have come to appreciate and expect. We’ve seen a recent boom in the number of small-plate and farm-to-table eateries popping up in some of Miltown’s up-and-coming neighborhoods like Bay View and Walker’s Point. For this post, however, we’ll focus on farm-to-table. Farm-to-Table is a phrase that can mean different things to different people. When you think of farm-to-table dining, you may envision tree-hugging yuppies going to urban farmers markets in hybrid cars to fill cloth bags with expensive lettuce and free-range chicken. At its heart, though, farm-to-table simply means that the food on the table in front of you features organic ingredients grown or raised on nearby farms.

How to Make Your Walk a Meditation in Motion

Posted by Guest Blogger

Dec 15, 2014 10:25:00 AM

When holiday stress amps up and weather temperatures plummet to freezing (in some parts of the country), walks can be the best form of self-therapy! Even in as little as fifteen to twenty minutes a short walk can be rejuvenating, grounding and a form of meditation.

After a brisk winter walk I feel energized, refreshed, more positive, and present.  Use your time outside as you do your time on the yoga mat–as a chance to breathe, to practice self-love, and connect to the world around you.

Transform your walk into a meditation in motion! Here’s how:

1. Ditch the technology

Keep the cell phoned stored in your pocket, a running belt, or, if you feel safe, at home. Ditch the ear buds and silence your itunes. Turning off technology allows you to tune into to YOU. Listen to your breath as you inhale and exhale. Hear the birds chirping around you, cars honking, cyclists passing you, and the buzz of life around you.  Music, texting, chatting on the phones to friends are all great but it can take you away from the present moment and make you less aware of your surroundings. Let your breath and the noise around you be the music to move you along.

Winter Yoga For Kids

Posted by Guest Blogger

Dec 10, 2014 10:27:15 AM

The winter months are upon us and it’s harder for kids to find ways to go outside and play. School is also in full gear and it can be very stressful for young ones. Yoga is the perfect activity for kids to do to help them de-stress, unwind, stay active and keep their minds and bodies healthy and fit. Here’s a sequence of fun poses children can do on their own, with a friend or sibling, or with a parent. Yoga can help kids feel energized and ready to tackle their homework and any other task. If you’re looking for a fun gift to give your kids this holiday season, my is super fun!

Cat/Cow Pose—I love doing this pose with kids to warm up their spines and strengthen their tummies. It’s also a great pose to break the ice by making sounds of the cow and the cat in each position. Start on all fours, inhale to lift your head and tail at the same time; then exhale to tuck under your tail and round your head in to your chest. In cow pose you want to drop your tummy and chest towards the floor and in cat you want to use your abdominals to round your back as much as you can towards the ceiling.  Arch and round the spine 8 to 10 times.

Self Made Woman

Posted by Guest Blogger

Dec 9, 2014 10:10:00 AM

By Caley Alyssa Yarvosky

When I was a child, I never dreamed I would be someone who others would look up to and be inspired by. Someone whose feelings and experiences would resonate with others enough for them to share their feelings and experiences as well. I always wanted to be an orthopedic surgeon or a professional ballet dancer (two very different career paths.) 

But here I am; a successful yoga teacher, fit model, social media influencer, and brand ambassador in the Los Angles community. How did I get to where I am today?

I talked. I told people what I wanted to do and where I wanted to go. I let my dreams be known and I took steps to make them a reality. I didn’t ever take “no” for an answer. I believe that by verbalizing my dreams and sending them into the universe, I created energy around those dreams, a vibration around those words. And once other people started to feel that vibration, they reacted to it. They connected me with other people who shared that same energy, who had ways of helping me accomplish my dreams.

Winter Foods You Should Start Eating Now

Posted by Peter Coulter

Dec 4, 2014 12:07:00 PM

Winter arrived early for us in Wisconsin this year. Single digit temperatures and snow flurries sure haven’t been shy.  

Staying warm this winter involves more than just wool socks, a working fireplace and a glass of tea (although tea is a great addition!). The foods you eat (and when you eat them) are directly responsible and related to how you feel during that time of year. As the seasons change, so do our eating habits. I can’t say I’ve ever seen anyone eating a pumpkin pie in May (maybe that’s just me though).

One of our ambassadors, Insiya Rasiwala-Finn, an Ayurvedic Educator recently wrote a blog post about how different foods and elements are related to our bodies’ functions during the cool winter months. Check the post out here - Wellness Tips For The Winter

Five Reasons Why Every School Should Offer Yoga

Posted by Guest Blogger

Dec 3, 2014 9:21:00 AM

With stress and injuries on the rise, it’s no surprise that yoga is more popular throughout the world today than it ever has been. Yoga offers amazing exercise, flexibility and even endurance. But did you know that yoga can help with even more than your fitness? As a high school biology teacher, Sara introduced stretching and breathing exercise to my classes. Not only were the students receptive to this, they enjoyed it! Now, Whakapingia and Sara, wearing their hats as Koha Yoga, worked together, teaching countless yoga classes to eager teenagers.  We have been thanked many times not just for the lessons we taught, but for the coping tool we provided them by introducing them to yoga. Below are our top five reasons why every high school should do yoga!
