What if you were in charge of hiring the Backstage Manager/Tour Coordinator for the biggest headliner touring right now? You would spend all the money necessary to get the best most experienced person, with the best track record for the job. What if we made this into a metaphor about BREATH. What if you allowed [...]

Letting Go of Belly Sucking

Letting go of that constant need to pull the belly is can be a really really difficult thing to do. It is still reinforced in many exercise regimes, and we are told by our doctors and therapist to keep our core strong. And so we suck in. Worried about muffin tops and perceived flab. The [...]
