by Marissa on March 24, 2017

Recently, I wrote about my experience with pelvic floor dysfunction. In large part, the reason I was experiencing such discomfort was because I had high tone pelvic floor, hip flexor and inner thigh muscles.

When I first started dating my husband, he would lovingly comment that my nose is always in a book. It’s true that I’ve always been a bit of a book worm. As an introvert, I could sit and read all day. I truly can’t get enough. I’ve always liked non-fiction and still do, but when […]

My obsession with all things barre lately is off the charts. Maybe it’s because I love how I feel so strong and energized after class at The Bar Method or maybe I just really love the grippy socks and open-back tanks.

It’s time to let you in on the secret that is my daily meditation practice. For the longest time, I struggled with making meditation a daily habit. I would stick with it for a few days, weeks or even a month and then it would just sort of fall to the wayside.  It was frustrating […]
