Restorative Yoga is a relaxing and nurturing practice that allows the body and mind to relax and well, restore.  All you need to do is sit or lie on a mat with your body supported by bolsters, blocks and blankets.  I do all the work.  No energy or expertise required for you.  The benefits of the practice include better sleep, less anxiety, gentle stretching of the body especially the chest and shoulders, etc.

Linda was was trained in level I Rest. Yoga in the Judith Lasater tradition by Ann Biasetti in Saratoga Springs.  She will soon and be attending a level II training session in the spring of 2020 to allow for more poses and therapeutic possibilities.

Here is a link to a nice description of what Restorative Yoga is. 

I hope…

North Shore Crossing

Working in Beverly, I’ve been watching the development of North Shore Crossing for quite some time now….specifically the progress being made on the new Whole Foods Market.  While I don’t ever imagine doing a “full shop” at the Whole Foods, I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I’m excited about the ability to run in and grab some of their nice array of prepared foods for the afternoon rush of “son juggling” to/from different hockey rinks.  Thatcher attends school in Rockport and plays for a hockey team out of Peabody….which means evening practices up there.  Finn attends a school in Beverly where I work and practices out of Talbot rink at O’Malley.  So, there’s a lot of back and forth up/down Route 128 and coordinating of schedules.   With hockey season kicking into full swing the exact same time school was back in session, we’ve been dropping the ball big time in regards to meal planning.  We are far too guilty of feeding the boys on the fly and the choices have been less than healthy.

Whole Foods will be a nice option for afternoon snacks and later dinners….or at least I hope….until crock pot weather is upon us.

Whole Foods Market, Beverly is scheduled to open on October 18th.


Here are some store features:

Special features of the store include:

  • Hundreds of products throughout the store from local suppliers, seven of which are recipients of Whole Foods Market’s Local Producer Loan Program, which provides low-interest loans to local producers to help grow their businesses

  • Fresh produce department featuring seasonal fruits and vegetables and selections from over 12 regional growers

  • Bakery department offering an array of breads baked in-house, locally-made pastries and items for vegan and other special diets

  • Full-service butcher department with a variety of ready-to-cook options, such as made in-house sausages and fresh ground beef, and selections from local suppliers

  • Seafood department featuring fresh seafood from local suppliers, including sea scallops, littleneck clams, oysters and haddock fillets, as well as a large selection of packaged and frozen fish

  • Specialty foods section with artisanal chocolates, locally sourced cheeses and seasonal antipasti items made in-store

  • Bulk section with about 90 items and five make-your-own nut butter grinders

  • Prepared foods department featuring hot and cold food bars and stations for made in-house  signature sandwiches, build your own bone broth bowls, Mediterranean grain bowls, charcuterie, pizza, sushi and oven-ready meals

  • Full-service coffee and tea bar

  • Beauty and body care department featuring products from about 30 local suppliers



Cape Ann Whale Watch Adventure

Took a ride out on choppy waters with the Hurricane II recently in search of whales and other marine life. We saw 6-8 humpbacks deep diving and lobtailing (slapping tails onto water surface). As always, the captain John and crew were wonderful, especially naturalist Jamie. They are magnificent!



Fall Equinox

Cape Ann Wellness

The Fall Equinox marks the beginning of Autumn and through the lens of #Ayurveda  It marks the beginning of Vata Season. Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC  suggests a few tips for staying balanced through the transition.

Autumn being cool, dry and windy season means that the Vata elements of air, light, dry, rough, subtle and mobile qualities are present.

Your skin may start to feel dry, tight and a bit rough. A Vata imbalance can make you feel fidgety, lack of focus, ungrounded and/or spaced out.

You may experience constipation, bloating, anxiety, joint pain and/or insomnia.
