Living in the Moment

February 14, 2018

THREE, TWO, ONE 
I recently discovered what Living in the Moment actually means. While to some, it can be as dauntless as swimming with sharks in the Caribbean, and to others it can mean a calming walk in a newly discovered trail.

5 Beginner Yoga Poses to Start Your Day

January 10, 2018

Your mornings set the day’s tone. In a perfect world, we’d wake up before the sun, meditate, head to an hour-long yoga class, and enjoy a yummy juice or coffee watching the sunrise.

Canadian heli-skiing is for expert skiers – or those that have a natural deficiency of fear or sense.

I survived six days of it with a group of five non-expert skiers aged 45 to 70. As the baby of the group I was one of two survivors that made it injury free to the final day (my seventy-year-old companion was the other.) We lost a person a day for the first three days with injuries to a hamstring, back and knee respectively. The damage I sustained was less obvious. I leave Canada with a massively bruised ego and a liver that has had to process massive doses of Vitamin I.

Downhill skiing can be a hypercompetitive sport. Even a little fun day on the mountain can turn into an exhausting and exhilarating athletic experience.
