Community Spotlight: Rae Broderick

Rae lives in Woodstock, NY, probably most well known for the 1970’s music festival (which wasn’t actually IN Woodstock) , but is also home to some fantastic food joints, local shops, artworks and people. I first met Rae when she was working and guiding classes at Strala Yoga in NYC (now based in Park City, UT). Since then, she’s co-starred in a film that was awarded placement in several international film festivals, opened a yoga studio, runs a successful wellness coaching and astrology business, Root Yoga + Wellness, and just hosted her first Retreat in Ireland this past April which was a bright and vibrant success.

We Rise By Lifting Others

 A friend recently commented that my bathroom looked like a Sephora Pop-Up shop. While my initial gut reaction was to say thanks, I quickly realized they had just written me a great big Reality Check. That very innocent comment coupled with my recent discovery of Marie Kondo’s book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up (yes, I finally read it)... I was at risk of a guest appearance on Hoarders and clearly, it was time for a change.

What To Do When Worry and Anxiety Creep In

As a kid, you often don't think too much about stuff, you just do it - and usually, you make mistakes and learn. I turned 28 this year, and just between us, I feel like I'm only now starting to get a hang of this "adulting" thing. I pay taxes, I own a business, I do laundry. But lately, I can't help but notice, a big dark rain cloud hovering over my head. It feels like, logically, I know I'm fine, more than fine even, but that darn cloud seems to always be there. I realized was getting so caught up in overthinking the details - my brain was becoming a massive tangled web of anxiety and worry, leaving little room for creativity, happiness, and exploration.

Thoughts On Gratitude

"Tilting my head to the side, I ask her what it means. "It’s how we give thanks in Japan before a meal" she says. It expresses gratitude for the plants and animals, the farmers, the house, the chef - everything that went into the creation of the meal. It's appreciation for the whole process, not just the end result. This word is said before every meal, tracing its roots back to Buddhist tradition. I immediately became enamored with how it so simply and elegantly it shares gratitude and thanks."

How To Get Out Of A Funk

A few things on my mind: The weather up here in New York is pretty coldish, rainyish and all colors of greyish. Climate change is still a thing (more on that later). Oh and I currently have a migraine. UGH. I guess this is life though sometimes right? It can't all be roses. This important thing is to relax, reset and get back out there.
