Eating To Feel Good

Consider food. Wait, actually, let’s back up. Consider yoga. Before yoga, I didn’t acknowledge my body. That is, I didn’t think of it as the strong powerhouse that I know it to be today. I didn’t view it as a vehicle that allows me to travel, fall in love, hug my family, laugh with/at my […]

Signs Your Breakthrough Is Coming

Ah, breakthroughs. Such a warm and fuzzy word. Who doesn’t love or want a breakthrough? Usually, though, for whatever reason, there’s a wall between us and it. Sidenote: That’s why they call it a “breakthrough.” I know. I’ll give your minds a second to get unblown. It is the newfound ability to access something, a […]

It’s been nearly three weeks since the epic celebration that is the Baptiste Yoga Power Flow Immersion took place in Estes Park. Since that time of community and fun, I’ve experienced a lot of openings. Some occurred right then and there; some since being back at home. That’s the beauty of this work: it never ends. Whether […]

Below: a recipe for success. First, you have to move to Charleston. Next, you have to take a risk. Finally, you have to be gluten-free. Oh, and twenty-four years old. Okay, maybe those last two are optional. At least that was the case for Julia Ingram, owner of Sweet Radish Bakeshop, Charleston’s first gluten-free bakery. She […]

Pick a card, any card. Well, not the Ace of Spades. Or the Queen of Hearts. Those are lame. Think of something atypical/arbitrary/abstruse. One nobody could possibly guess. Do you have it? OK, good. Next time you see local magician Jonathan Bayme, he’ll be able to name it for you. Jonathan knew he was a […]

Adam Fetsch has a secret: He’s not a big fan of candles. (We’ll give you a moment to process.) Most have the same reaction to that apparent paradox: the owner of hugely successful grassroots candle company, Rewined, started by Adam’s walking up and down King St. with a pouch of his first batch of personally made […]

It’s sort of a Jekyll-and-Hyde-type situation. Except, you know, without the whole battle between good and evil. Kate Scott Stewart is not your average wardrobe stylist. She’s an organized artist. A left-brained innovator. A right-brained problem-solver. The kind of intuitive visionary who equally loves both the freedom of a blank canvas and a three-ring binder. It […]

Nothin’ like a little bit of cancer to put life into perspective. At least that was the case for Caryn Antos O’Hara, founder of Yoga Benefits. Primarily a kids’ yoga instructor, Caryn teaches at Charleston studios and schools.  Until recently, she worked part-time at Lululemon. She joined the yoga apparel company for extra money before her dreamlike […]

It’s early morning, quiet. No one is awake and the sun is barely up. Tami Enright walks across the wet grass, as usual, hearing vibrating sounds. It’s a familiar, comforting hum that gets louder as she gets closer: the buzz of thousands of honeybees. “I’m trying to keep it a secret,” she says. “But I […]

Consider coffee. You may be a just-one-cup-in-the-morning type of person or the die-hard-double-shot type. You’re not an expert, but you know some and you enjoy the smell. You always opt for post-dinner-and-wine coffee at your favorite restaurant and believe that great coffee is organic, balanced and high-quality. Because, above all, you love your relationship with […]
